Amazing family holiday!

After a fairly inauspicious start with our plane getting turned back to Nadi due to weather and a fair amount of child vomit on the flight we had an amazing time at Jean-Michel. The staff are amazing, it is fantastic for the kids, food is brilliant and the activities are top notch. We will be back!
