Although I did not stay at the resort we did dive with the folks from L'Aventure Divers at the resort. The resort grounds are really very nice, the pool is amazing, and the dinning facilities are really amazing. But the dive op was the best part. we were able to go to Nameama, one of the dive spots on my...

We have wanted to go to JMC for years, but i have always been put off byu the extra flight from Nadi. We were booked into Castaway this year, but with the cyclone, we had to change our plans - we ended up chosing JMC over Vomo as we have talked about going there for ages, my parents were joining...

JMC was one of the most relaxing holidays we have had (& we travel a lot). We travelled here with our two boys (11 & 13), my eldest actually had his 13th birthday here (the staff we aware of this as it was picked up at the time of our booking & they arranged a cake for him) and they...

Bula! Husband and I traveled with our 5.5 year old. The whole family has come back relaxed and raving about the wonderful time we had at JMCR. It was the perfect blend of family and alone time for all three of us. The resort is beautifully appointed in all the ways it needs to be without being ostentatious. There were...

We have anchored in the bay at the Cousteau Fiji Islands Resort on a number of occasions while sailing through Fiji. The water is clear and the bay area nice and secluded. Many guests of the resort were out snorkeling, stand-up paddling and kayaking. As non-resort guests we did not go ashore, but to me the measure of a water-front...

We can't say enough positive things about the resort and the nannies that dearly looked after our two children (3 and 5 years of age) while holidaying at Jean Michel. We will be back and are still smiling from all the fun we had during our 10 day stay. You can choose to take part in a myriad of activities...

My husband and I came here with our two children (3.5 and 20 months). By the end of the first day I felt that I had got the total cost of the holiday's value in just twelve hours. it is not cheap, but in our view worth every cent. The accommodation is very nice...we stayed in a one bedroom bure...

We stayed for a week in an Oceanfront Bure, one of the larger ones closer to Reef Point (Bure 21), and it was excellent. Didn't hear any of the neighbours kiddies, or smell mould or anything like that. Not that we spent all that much time in the Bure. Basically our kids (10, 8 and 4) were up at sparrows,...

We holidayed in mid-March for 6 nights, a couple with a 2 and 4 year old. I guess I was eagerly looking forward to staying at this resort for several years, so maybe my expectations were a fair bit higher, considering the wonderful reviews about it. And I guess for the price, even with a great package they were offering,...

4 stars Good family holiday Let me preface this review by saying that all three members of our party became very sick during this holiday with an A grade tummy bug, so that has certainly limited our enjoyment. So just keep that in mind when reading on. [Also – side note – regarding the woman below who complained about the...
