Comments  
The staff at Matava was absolutly the greatest. The accommodations are
unreal, beautiful. The food was the best of the entire trip and I visited 7
resorts while I was in Fiji. The diving was exceptional. I am a travel
agent and send people there and the reviews are always the same. The only
wish list item I have is lighted trails for night. But that is me, I am
totally blind at night.
