During a 2 week stay on the islands, this was by far the worst resort. The staff were rude and would call guest names and comment on their appearance or were creepy and follow you to your room. The staff stole from bags and rooms, in the course of one afternoon 2 phones and over $300 were stolen. The rooms...

Staff were friendly and made a real effort with entertainment in the evenings. The food varied - our first lunch was very basic (sausage sandwich), but this was followed by a 3 course dinner and a curry evening. It would be nice to have somewhere comfy for guests to sit with one another - especially in the evening. The island...

We visited three islands with Awesome Fiji Adventures and this was our favorite one for sure. Mostly because of the amazing staff and very cosy feeling there. You get a really warm welcome with homemade limonade, singing and guitar playing and if there is a problem, the staff is so helpful always. A girl was food poisoned from another island...

Recently visited White sandy and the staff appeared to be very friendly and happy, however that all seemed to change after the first night. On the Islands, if you don't eat whats there, you don't eat at all. In the night my girlfriend was extremely sick, however there is no one awake to help or to call. There is no...

I stayed with a friend of mine at White Sandy beach for 2 nights and we thought it was the best resort of all the 3 where we stayed at the Yasawa islands! Lots of activities (many of them were free eg learning to prepare a coconut) and we took a wonderful snorkling trip nearby. The staff was very friendly.

We stayed at White Sandy Beach for two nights during our four day stay at the Yasawas. We had a very good experience. We stayed in a beach front bure - a very cute little cottage with double bed, toilet and shower outside. We didn't encounter bedbugs whatsoever. The staff was friendly, every night there was a bonfire and they...

Myself and my boyfriend stayed 2 nights at the resort as part of an island hopping package. It was a nice beach resort, food was average and didn't cater for everyone. Most of the staff were lovely (laps in particular) but some seemed like they didn't want to be there at all! We stayed in a beachfront bure which on...

Set on a nice beach, white sand, blue sea, seems ideal. Until you check in!! My bed was full of bedbugs crawling around, i woke with a cricket on my head! No activitis because no petrol for boats! Guitar had only 2 strings so no entertainment, no music at all provided. Showers and toilets have no locks and are filthy....

Okay, so I wasn't expecting much seeing as how this place was a 1 coconut. But I stayed at places like Nabua Lodge, Long-Beach and Gold Coast Inn on my trip which were wonderful. This place, oh so much potential, oh so much disappointment. First the location is nice, a beautiful beach on a tropical island. But to be honest,...

The rooms were clean and basic but it was all you needed. The water works sometimes and not others but we knew that before going so were fine with that. Food was good and we even got dessert. What we didn't like however was staff swearing at us in Fijian during a volleyball game and thinking we didn't know what...
