We stayed at this resort for 5 days over Christmas and had a great time diving, chilling out and enjoying the delights of the island. when you book into a backpacker resort you have to be realistic about the level of luxury you can expect - we felt that for the money we paid that the level of accommodation was...

Stayed there for two nights. Ratu kini's isn't all bad but overall is below average. The room was budget but ok overall. The location is great. The restaurant is probably the worst aspect. The food is just awful and with the limited options on the island it's a big negative. The transfer to the island was great but the boat...

We stayed at Ratu Kini for seven days and we can only comment positive things. The main beach in front of the place is nice and the water is shallow. The beach is shared with the local community, but we didn't see any rubbish during our stay. Would like to thank Tui and everyone else - Gus, Borro, Joe (hope...

This is the worst place that we stayed in Fiji. Do not waste your money staying here. Most of the staff are rude and not welcoming at all - this is a big contrast to all the other places that we stayed in Fiji. The island is shared with mana island resort - which dominates the island. You are only...

Buckle in for a long review! If you see my other reviews you'll see we're pretty easy going and generally score 3/5 or above (i.e. People who don't review just to complain!) We had quite the experience here...We were booked at Mana Backpackers along the beach but they didn't have our booking (travel agent error). We came to Kini and...

These guests, like most guest that complains, are were obviously been misinformed by the travel agents that are trying to make quick sale, and guests trying to get everything for next to nothing. We did have some real issues with power the last few weeks but its now resolved, and our engineer John Vosayara terminated because of incompetency. We hope...

We booked an unbelievably good deal through the Ratu Kini website a few months before arriving in Fiji after realising our budget would not stretch to island hopping around the Yasawas. So glad we picked Mana and Ratu Kini! The staff at this resort are so attentive and happy, I believe they are live-in staff so it really feels like...

It's a typical backpacker place but the value for money is reasonable and the staff is really friendly and I had a great time here overall. People coming here should know what to expect, if you have high expectations, don't come here. It happens that there is no hot water or you got a bit electrical shock when trying to...

Hi , This was very simple. The guest paid for a package and the transfer included was to be on our scheduled transfer at 930am, with free pick up from anywhere in Nadi area. Since the guest missed the time, they took the South Seas Cruises (more expensive way to Mana) and had to find their own way to Port...

We stayed at the big resort and popped down the beach for breakfast or lunch sometimes. All good and reasonably priced, though meal times restricted. I cannot review the accomodation, only the restaurant.

Did 4 dives with these guys and found them to be very reasonable price wise and the level of service from the team was excellent.
