"We had been to JMC before pre kids so we were expecting a different experience with the same standard of excellence. We were not disappointed. 
The food is amazing. You will not want for food, you will be spoiled for selection and you will probably return with a few kgs extra!
The Bula club for the kids is well organised. The nannies work together and love the kids. The Fijian people love kids and it's quite evident as they treat them beautifully. Our kids had a ball at the kids club. We felt comfortable that they were safe and well cared for each day. 
The service was spot on. The staff fabulous and friendly. 
Use of all water sports was fantastic to work off all that great food. The lovo night was a highlight - loved it. 
The additional tours conducted including the village, mangroves, waterfall, town markets are all bonus inclusions. 
Will we be returning? ABSOLUTELY! 
This is such a great resort for families where the parents will really unwind!!!"   - MaisyWaisy |  5 Star TripAdvisor Review

"My wife and our 2 girls 7&8 stayed here at the end of January. This was really a fantastic family holiday, all the family was catered for and the way the kids are looked after is amazing.
The food was fabulous fresh local produce a straight from the farmers market, they make a great expresso coffee and it's served in to die for views from the restaurant. 
...when you add all the added value which is included, trips to markets, villages, waterfalls and the free snorkelling boats etc and the included excellent a la carte food package, we are reassessing that's it's really good value for a five star stay. 
A bonus on the small plane from Nadi you get great views over the island and reefs. Definitely on our return list with the right package."   - Des S. |  5 Star TripAdvisor Review

"I cannot say enough about this place. From the earth and welcoming of Mark and Bart, the managers to the incredible staff at the restaurant especially Riko, to our nanny mare v, to Chris who works the boats it was such an incredible pleasant experience. Everyone had a great time and we cannot wait to return. Much love to my Cousteau family!  Vinaka"   - GreenSonya | 5 Star TripAdvisor Review

"We travelled in May 2015 with a 2 and 4 year old.
We stayed in an ocean-front bure for 9 days. Our nannies, Mita and Paulina, were fabulous - they took the incredibly tired kids away from us on the first evening, and when we got back to the bure they were fast asleep. The bure was spacious and ideal for a family of four. The resort has robust bedside barriers, which you can request, if you're worried about the kids rolling out of the single beds in the night. 
The kids had a great time overall. The nannies were very hands-on and got into the pool with them, went down slides together etc. We gave them every second night off and ate together as a family then. The food was great, and there is a real risk you will over-eat. It was a good mix for us between relaxing as a couple and having family time. It was the first holiday I have had since having children where I have successfully mixed the two. 
In summary, we can't wait to return - especially while the kids are young and need a reasonable amount of care. I would recommend JMC if you can afford it, and want some time out for yourself!”  - Dr. M | 5 Star TripAdvisor Review

"Loved it.
- Decent size room (split level single) big enough for four people
- Laid back service
- Extremely friendly with special call out to Pete (activities), Tia (activities and rugby nut), Rosi (Bula Club and awesome women), Helen (Ops) and Food & Beverage team.
- Everything was ssssssoooooooo easy i.e. organising snorkelling, arranging to meet Nannies, day trips, additional menu requests, items from town the shop didn't have, 
- Paddle boarding, kayaking and snorkelling off the pier
- Open air restaurant
- Menu choice for kids and adults. 
- Nannies for kids (one for each if under five) Additionally, they are seemless and you can use them when you like and its not a big deal. So easy. Also, while they are on till 9pm, you can give them an early pass before 6pm so they can get the bus home to their families - which we did most nights.
- Tea & Coffee station by the pool with snacks
- Not having to take credit card to dinner
- Covered Beds/lounges everywhere i.e. pool, beach side
- Beach view Villas
- Hammocks 
- Sparking water”   - NZBred |  5 Star TripAdvisor Review

"This place is amazing - we stayed with our large family group of adults and four kids under four. The staff were lovely - whether it was in the restaurant, the activity and water sports teams or the nannies and buddies, they all worked so hard to give us a good time, and genuinely seemed to worry about whether we were.
The lunch on the private island was a special treat...it was pretty awesome, huge beach flat opened up as the tide went out, kids running around, playing ball games, chasing crabs and all this beautiful food to eat.
The snorkellling was amazing...it’s seriously just amazing, right off the edge of the pier though we did go out with the boat too.
Three courses for both lunch and dinner but you don't need to eat them all, they're pretty flexible if you say you want something else too. We also asked (at ridiculously short notice actually) if we could have a cake for a member of the party's birthday and the chef whipped up a gorgeous fresh banana cake and half the staff came over with a guitar to sing her happy birthday.
...we totally loved it and thank everyone who looked after us so well very much. Vinaka vaka levu!”  - Brunswick | 5 Star TripAdvisor Review

"The resort is very picturesque, the staff are extremely friendly and attentive, make you feel like you are family. It is very evident that they want you to return. Food was exceptional. We had travelled in Port Douglas, Cairns, Hamilton Island, Sydney before arriving in Fiji and have to say that we had some of the best meals in Fiji at this resort. The dive operation was very professional and safety conscious and I would definitely return to dive with this operation."

"We can't speak highly enough of this resort - our second time staying at JMC and we loved it again for all the same reasons. The warmth of the people is so wonderful, they do everything to make sure you have a truly relaxing and awesome holiday. We stayed 12 nights, and were sad to leave at the end. 
If you haven't had a holiday you've enjoyed since having kids, this is the place. We spent most of our time together as a family, but really enjoyed being able to leave our 3 year old in Divora's capable hands while we went out on a couple of dives (Namena Reserve - like diving in a BBC documentary), and while we enjoyed our evening meal together (every night for 12 nights in a row!!!).
Go for as long as you can. 7 nights is not enough. We saw a couple of families try to extend that couldn't as it was fully booked.
If kids are picky eaters, know that you can ask for different things. We asked for sweet drinks not to be offered (kids get three courses for lunch and dinner as well), and for some special, more simple, meals when the menu was a little advanced for a 3 year old. Nothing was too much trouble.” - Cat | 5 Star TripAdvisor Review

"We are due to leave tomorrow and my wife and I were madly looking at how we could take a few more days off work and extend... This place is heaven for a young family and has given us our best family holiday ever. The kids have loved the Bulla Club and the buddy system has meant my wife and I can really relax... And I mean relax!! Food is exquisite, staff are amazing and there is not a single thing we have been left wanting for. Snorkelling is great and the variety of things to do has been perfect. We will be back very soon and the only regret I have is that I cannot give more than 5 stars!!!!!"  - Ashley W. |  5 Star TripAdvisor Review

"We stayed 6 nights and it just wasn't enough. My advice is to stay at least 10 nights. This place has to be experienced as nothing any of the reviews will tell you could possibly do it justice. We stayed in a Garden Bure with our 2 children 12 & 8. The Bure was absolutely gorgeous, not that you spend much time there. 
Scuba Diving is amazing and the staff are extremely professional. Food is great, Staff get to know you by name, surrounds are stunning, snorkelling straight off the beach is amazing, scuba diving, village visits, rainforest walks, kayaking, market visits, etc. Do as little or as much as you want. Good tip is to go to the market as a couple staying there did and buy crab and lobster. They had Pete (guide that goes to market with you) help them bargain a good price and then had the Chef cook it up for them. You will not be disappointed."  - LaPrimaMelbourne | 5 Star TripAdvisor Review

"Very clean resort, the food (all included) was so good I'm sure I put on 2 extra kg . I love the way the Bulla club (for kids ) was separated from the adult area , no kids running around and screaming when I'm trying to relax . Easy to see a local village life and not get hassled to buy things you don't want, its only a short walk out of the resort . Water sports and a Marine Biologist on hand for the Scuba diving or Snorkelling . I so would love to go back maybe next year.”    - Mega | 5 Star TripAdvisor Review
