Having stayed in a good many places all over the Pacific Islands, I believe Fafa Island is not the best value for your holiday dollar. For the price we paid, one would expect to be able to get hot water for drinks 24 hours a day, we travelled with a flask, but not being big alcohol drinkers , it was annoying to traipse around to the restaurant every time we wanted coffee. Along with other visitors, we often found it hard to identify our fale. No path lighting, we used the beach to find our way in the dark. Took up several torches and a modern lamp. The old kero lamps were smelly, the bird life is prolific, but don't attempt to leave much unattended, the pukekos were into every thing. Meals were okay, we went a la carte, just eating when we were hungry, not enough vegetables for us, if we had been more active,I think it would cost a fair bit to satisfy a healthy appetite. Staff are friendly, but overall this place is more comfortable with European guests and priced accordingly .
