Matamanoa visit in May

Hi,

We are booking our first overseas trip tomorrow and have chosen Matamanoa Island to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and the hubby's birthday.

Have a few questions for those who have been. We have gone with the half board so dinner & breakfasts we won't need to worry about paying for while we are there. Having been to Daydream where we rarely ate lunch, we are planning on stocking up on some snacks in Denarau beforehand, but in the event they aren't cutting it for lunch, I was wondering if anyone had recent prices if we chose to get lunch on a few of those days? Obviously I know it depends on what we order etc, but does anyone have a general range? Is it possible to just order sandwhiches or salads?

We will be taking alcohol with us also, however if anyone has a general guide of costing on that too it would be much appreciated.

We will be there from 18th May, which I hope is still a good time of year for snorkelling or we may not make it to our 11th wedding anniversary :)

Any other tips for our trip there other than the obvious of relax and enjoy? :)

Thanks

We never took the board offer full or part and paid as we went, for us it worked out cheaper only paid for what we ate. We did have to pay the price of the, meals on theme nights. Maybe they don't let you do that anymore.

Hi there- we are going in Feb and were looking for prices too. I found a sample menu for dinner that might give you a bit of a guide on prices for food and drinks.

Thank you both for your responses! We went with paying the half board as I find it easier knowing thats all paid before we go.

Thanks shea2014, I wasn't able to find any of that so will definitely check out those prices, especially the alcohol :)

Unless you select the most expensive items and ate all courses the meal plan is not worth it. We just had the included continental breakfast and then purchased what we felt like eating as we went
