Wow .My experience too 3 years ago with the wife and kids we stayed at Mcdonalds also.great to hear the curry guy is still going strong.He sold out to us every day he came over and he had the rest of the day off sitting under the tree.(I think that's all he does anyway)
I actually found low tide not too bad .the trees are pretty close and I did manage to land mine in a tree but the local lads got it down no charge but they accepted a nights worth of kava .Wouldn't mind some waves tho and the other activities like drifting on the reef was great too on the no wind days.
Kids had a ball loved feeding the fish and swimming with them

I went to Fiji and Nan-a-nui ra and this is my feedback.
I LOVE IT.
I didn't stay with the people mentioned, I stayed at McDonalds which is one of the operators on the island. Which is like most of them there.
The kitchen is basic with a couple of gas rings. The electricity is run from generators. The furnishings are miniamal. The choice of food is very basic. It is not 5 star. You drink rain water, have to shower in cold water which is pumped from a well and not to be drunk. However, this is all part of staying on a great island with great people and fantastic kiting. The snorkelling is also good with great diving at hand as well.
I take taxis from the airport in Nadi to the Wharf and then get a pick up from the island. No where is going to be like staying at a 5 star resort and if you are expecting something like that, go elsewhere. Nananu i ra is about wind, warm waters, fun people and plenty of Fiji bitter! Oh, and the curry man that comes across from Rakiraki sells great veg curry! You got to love that.
Oh, please keep posting bad things about the place in general, at least it will keep everyone away from a great spot!
