Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

No idea we were coming, no Internet, no breakfast, lunch or dinner facilities. No garden to pick from as described. Virtually we had a room with roof and flushing toilet, no running water for shower. We were provided with hot water urn for cup of tea, which we supplied. Not the place for a diabetic. Avoid unless you are set up for a camp site. Photos are old from when it was running properly. New Managers were very nice, but no idea of what they should be doing.

I was expecting to stay much longer here. I wish I could have, but circumstances had changed my plans. But the short time I spent here was amazing. The staff were incredible and once the renovations are complete it will all be a perfect location for a serene and Real Fijian experience. The manager Ali was a very kind an professional businessman and I wish him and the rest of the staff nothing but the best. Bula - Ryan B

Nothing like the web site photos. Off the beaten track, down a road really only suited for 4 X 4's. The chalets ( l am being very polite ) which are akin to a 1950/60's very cheap English holiday camp but worse, I've owned better garden sheds. Evoid like the plague.

Once.you negotiate the 3k windy potholed narrow dirt road in off the highway, you will be blown away by the serenity if this small enterprising local venture. As always, the people are adorably friendly and welcoming and we had a freshly cooked meal and a few beers and a swim. The beach itself us nothing flash.

Initial impression of Vatai Beach Eco Lodge is that it needs a lot of work to upgrade, but the price reflects this. Currently they have a good cook and the fresh fish with garlic sauce is fantastic. Hut style accommodation with shared toilets and cold showers. Great spot to lounge in hammocks, and the best is the access 2 km+ by boat, to the coral reef for snorkeling at a reasonable price and our weekend bonus was heading out to the coral reef at night and swimming in a sandy lagoon while the local guy went off with a torch and spear gun looking for sharks. The night sky of stars, (minus the moon) was breathtakingly spectacular. Fish fly at night in the torch light with one landing in the boat!!. This is a gem spot that hopefully will get better if plans to tidy and upgrade come off but well worth the effort to get there especially in fabulous sunshine. Owner is very helpful organizing transport once you get to Ba or Tavua on the local bus.

“The road in is very rough, a rocky bush track for the last 2kms. The property is very basic with solar powered lights and cold bore water showers. It is not for people with physical disabilities as the paths and stair are very rough and uneven. We took the two units with ensuite bath rooms (3 adults and three children) extra bed $30 each per night was a foam mattress squeezed onto the floor, the second night we took an extra room which was $60 (no ensuite) which was a bit more comfy. Breakfast was included, and was excellent pancakes with fresh pawpaw/watermelon. Lunch and dinner meals were discussed and agreed on. Fish and potatoes with a tomato/carrot slaw and chicken curry and rice, tasty well cooked simple food. Do not expect a menu or choice. The grandkids loved it, table tennis, volley ball swimming and a fire on the beach. A real adventure. There was coolish beer, but only 4 stubbies because "the truck hadn't come" . Better next day when it did! Second night was cold, only a sheet and light throw so we were all cold most of the night. A great adventure for the young and fit. Not so good for elderly Nanas!”

The experience Vatia beach eco-lodge is one of a kind and beyond comprehension and one that cannot fade from our mind. It's setting depicts the true meaning of the Fiji experience and Bula Spirit..... with its peaceful, charm, and simplicity signature. In my capacity as a Fijian I highly recommend this awesome Eco-lodge to interested locals and especially to tourists and visitors to our Shores. Thank you and vina'a va’alevu to the kind and industrious management and staff of Vatia beach eco-lodge. Kind regards, Spencer

My adult daughter (24) and I (54) stayed here for 8 days and we LOVED it. This is NOT the place for you if you expect every amenity, but if your looking for the REAL Fiji, stay here! First off the staff is helpful, welcoming, and completely authentic Fijians. They made us feel like we were just one of the gang with no pretensions what-so-ever. The accommodations were basic but adequate for us. This is NOT a hotel, it's a beach with cabins and wonderful cooks who pay attention to what you like. We stayed in a basic cabin that had a toilet and shower, beds with bug nets, and that's it. As we were only in the cabins to sleep, it more than met our needs. Think camping with a roof. The beach was fantastic and really is the only one in the vicinity. We were lucky enough that we had the entire place to ourselves for several days and truly enjoyed every moment. Jumped in a volleyball game with staff, got things we liked to eat and lazed around in hammocks. The absolute only improvement we would suggest would be the addition of chairs outside of the cabins to sit in and a lounge chair or two. In the heat of the day it was sometimes difficult to find a spot to relax in the shade and a lounge chair would have made a nap easier. The instructions for getting there are on the money and part of the adventure we enjoyed. We were both very surprised that this establishment isn't over run with backpackers as it is the PERFECT place for those on a budget with a sense of adventure. Again the staff was spectacular. La, the manager can sing wonderfully (and play volleyball), Bill was SO helpful in so many ways, and Peter was incredibly attentive and diligent in his duties. It didn't matter who was cooking - we never went hungry and often got exactly what we asked for, They were replanting the garden which had been whipped out by a recent storm but still we had plenty of FRESH food. If you have the chance, go night fishing with a local fisherman - we loved it and the fish were biting! We just cannot express the wonderful time we had staying here and the overall experience the staff helped us have. Again though, this is for people who want the REAL Fiji not the tourist traps. We would positively stay here again and bring friends and more family too. To the staff, vanaka vaka lavu!! (I probably spelled it wrong but you know what I mean:)) Dreaming of coming back. Best wishes for your continued success! Sharon & Jessica
