I am currently on a work contract in Suva for 6 months, so am obviously keen to explore places for weekend getaways. I chose the Beachouse largely for its breadth of activities on offer. However, I was disappointed as around 75% of the activities you see on the activities board, do not proceed. I am a keen snorkeler so on my first day I rocked up to the meeting point for the 2pm snorkel trip. No staff turned up, and there wasn't any around to ask if the snorkel trip was happening or not. You can only snorkel from the shore when the tide is high.
In addition, there seems to be a group of 'permanent' backpackers or similar staying there. I found them to be a bit 'cliquey'. They always hogged the SUP boards as well, whereas I was keen to have a go out in the surf (and obviously pay for my time).
All in all, I'd only come to the beachouse for two purposes: 1) get drunk 2) relax. If you are looking for activities and to get out and about more, I'd suggest you look elsewhere.
