    Staff and service was excellent, our premium bure was nice, clean, tidy, only what surprised us was that it was maid of tent, which at the end was nice as we had fresh air, stunning sunset views and own bathroom. Swimming with Manta ray is just amazing. Food provided as full board was actually tasty!

    Only cold water for shower

    The island is beautiful and enjoyed snorkelling multiple times a day. The ensuite was very comfortable and right on sunset beach which is a protected from high winds. The food was delicious and the staff was very nice and accommodating. They also had a wide range of activities that could keep you busy if you want and give you a feel for Fiji culture.

    I would like to know or see more about how barefoot is being sustainable and restoring reef life (which I think they are). Also meals are far apart so I was glad I brought snacks.

    The location is like a paradise, small island only for guest staying at the resort. Has 3 beaches reachable by walking and 2 reachable by kayak. You can do haike, and see other islands around from the top. You can do a lot of snorkelling, which is fantastic, the island is surrended by reef, and also diving if you like. The most amazing experience is swimming with manta rays! Every morning the dive centre organize a boat to going out in the channel where the mantas coming for feeding. Very quiete, friendly staff, Bio is organize a lot of activites and entertain guests during dinner with his lovely fijian music.

    What i didn't like was the food, poor choice, for lunch they give you only one plate, for someone is alright but for us holiday is also eating well and a lot, so one plate wasn't enough. Then you have afternoon tea, we were expecting cake or cookies but nothing, only tea and coffee. Dinner is nice and better they give you a soup and a main dish. We reported that to reception and they said that are working to improve that. I hope so because the place is fantastic, but for the money we paid, wasn't a good value for money. Overall we suggest the place as is a small paradise!

    Everything was amazing. The staff were great, food was good, cocktails delish! Location to die for!

    That we had a group of 30 ish American loud uni students on the island at the same time. It would have been fine if their teachers had given them some guidelines on behaviour, like a curfew and alcohol consumption, there was a Texas uni group here before them who were well behaved, pen state not so much. Management wrote great about it tho and gave us a free private dinner.

    The location, staff attitude, relaxed atmosphere

    Accomodation standard was clean & functional but basic. This is what we expected from write-ups etc & therefore was acceptable to us.

    Super friendly staff, we felt very welcome, its like a Big Family and you are Part of it. Amazing Bure, directly in front of the ocean, everybody has his own hammock. I loved the open air shower. They have different activities every day, it can't get boring, something for everybody like coconut bowling, traditional Singing, village trips, snorkeling with manta rays, private picknicks, you can make your own coconut jewelry and much more. The dive center is amazing, very professional staff, that made me feel very comfortable, I made my dive course and my friend went diving every day, sometimes two times. Diving with sharks, cave diving, wonderful colorful fishes, etc. They also have a nice bar with bunfire in the evening where they serve dinner, it's just amazing. The stay on Barefood island was a dream coming true!

    The way dinner was served sometimes didn't allow enough privacy. More tables for two should be arranged. Food was not enough sometimes and some things on the card were many times missing such as juices or ice cream.

    This is the best place in Yasawa island group for diving and snorkeling. It is actually a marine park and people from other island resorts travel here by boat. Staff is friendly and helpful, location of the island is awesome and has 3 beautiful beaches. I go this place two times during my 5 day holiday and i wish i would have more time at Barefoot.

    Limited variety of food offered for vegetarians.

    I visited this island two times. Everything is awesome. I think this place is underrated in a way that i dont understand why. Frankly i am happy if it stays underrated and nothing changes until my next visit. I love barefoot and the staff, hope to see them again soon.

    Very basic, but lovely resort, wonderful beaches, especially Sunset Beach. Dinner usually is served at the beach - just awesome! A lot of activities, funny games and History Talk after dinner. A relaxing place with a very friendly staff!!! Good chance to see Mantarays, even from the boat. The Ensuite Bures are tents with a terrace and your private beach.

    Breakfast at 8 o'clock. If you are too late, you will stay hungry. No choice of food, just one menu for lunch and dinner. No beach chairs, but many hammocks.

    Great location. Liked the afternoon tea "). The Camas sunset side tents were great.

    Dive Centre talked up the diving conditions/wildlife a bit more than I thought was entirely neutral. We did one of the most boring dives there we've ever done.. (It was the shark cleaning station - not a shark in sight, poor vis also, a swim that's all it was). There would ideally be mosquito nets I the sunset tents as well.

    Snorkeling around is perfect even though we are not at the right season for Manta Ray. Staff are very friendly and trying very hard to make you feel at home, they even try to remeber every guests' name.

    No hot shower

    The reef on the sunrise side

    Caution bedbugs! We booked a double bed bure on the sunrise side. These bures are very very very basic compared to the value you get for the money at other yasawa resorts and bad maintained. At night-time we discovered bedbugs and we had luck that we were not yet asleep so that we could kill them (9!!). We kept them and showed them to the hotel manager next morning after having no sleep at all. Thereupton she blamed us for bringing them along to get a reduced price. After that we showed her the eggs of the bedbugs. In her opinion it was the chipped wood of a wood worm... under the mattress. Ridiculous. 100% match to pictures of these eggs you find on google. After big discussions they offered us a discount of 7% and threatend to call the police if we don't pay that price. Furthermore the shared facilities were in a really bad condition (wastewater drains away just beside the basins so that it is a wonderful place for moskitos and flies). All together we can definitely not recommend this resort except you like sleeping with bed bugs, beeing pricked by a hundred of moskitos while taking a shower and watching masses of lovely flies sitting on your dinner.

    The bures are very basic but charming. The staff are the stars. I was at 2 other more 'upscale' resorts & they paled in comparison with the attention & activities that Barefoot offers. There are two lovely beaches where terrific reef snorkeling is just a few swim strokes away. Diving is exceptional as are the snorkelling safaries. Don't let the accommodation scare you. It's comfy inside & all you really need in paradise.

    The place is awesome, we stayed in the beachside bure with ensuite and then we stayed in the "5star Sofitel" and barefoot wins hands down. Simple but clean and the people on the island do everything in their power to ensure you have a good time. Get away from the tourist traps of denerau and go out to barefoot! The island is like a postcard!
