We have just returned from a 7 night stay at Jean-Michel Cousteau Fiji Resort, staying in a beautiful beach front bure with our two teenage daughters.

The most wonderful place to relax, we wouldn't go anywhere else for a break from the hectic lifestyle we lead. We can't recommend the resort enough. Children are very welcome and are kept busy with activities through the day by the wonderful staff.

Nice place, very tranquil. Food is quite good as well. Staff is lovely and caring. The beach is small, entrance to the ocean is cleaned a bit but gets rocky when you go further in so I'd recommend wearing special shoes to protect your feet.

Really wonderful resort. Staff are super helpful and very accommodating.
