We stayed in a room overlooking the water with a mosquito net for four nights. The magic of this place is the family that we stayed with and the incredible day trips that we did to various different snorkling spots which was amazing. We grew to love our hosts Joshua, Wendy, Teddy, Judy and the kids and we miss them. Someone left a review saying that the food was bad in 2017, our experience was the exact opposite - the food was amazingly tasty!! Incredible fresh fruit and catered to our sometimes difficult vegetarian/vegan dietary needs. We miss and think about this place often and would love to come back. It gives you such a beautiful Solomons experience to stay here!
Nice place in an isolated island. Great snorkel even we did not have luck with the weather. Food is optional and I highly recommend , bring your own food for lunch and dinner. We paid 100S$ for a dinner the first day we could not even eat. We had to cancel the following dates and eat our biscuits instead Breakfast with pancakes and fruits was more than Ok.
Not for us. Very very basic. Toilet and shower quite a walk from room which was very basic. One light powered by motorcycle battery to which you attach an alligator clip. No mossie coils are supplied. No torch is supplied for the walk to the toilet/shower in the dark. Small double bed. Dinner and breakfast were acceptable. Most concerning was when we asked about crocodiles we were told one swims by on a daily basis close to the "resort". This is extremely dangerous and guests should be told this before entering the water. Very disappointed.
We stayed 5 nights at Matikuri and it felt like the world slowed down. Benji & Jilly welcomed us like family which made the experience even more magical. We ate great food, made new friends, snorkelled the Matikuri reef as well as many memorable trips with Benji and Charles on the boat. We were lucky enough to stay when Benjis family were celebrating the end of new year and we had a blast. Its a seriously beautiful area and the laid back, warm and loving atmosphere Benji & Jilly have created is really special. Would highly recommend and we stayed in three other places over a month. Hope to return one day.
Great food (great fish), very welcoming and hospitable. They found me waiting at Seghe airport and offered me a place to stay and I loved the place. There is an awesome reef for snorkelling around the point with a junction between currents where all sorts of fish meet, and there are lots of docile reef sharks. My bungalow over the water was clean and insect free, and the view at sunset was dreamy.
