Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Good for families but very busy and crowded. The renovated rooms are great. The buffet is appalling. Black Coral restaurant is great. The staff however, were particularly inconsistent and even disengaged. Very unusual for Fijian's as a culture. It's as if management had given them all bad news and then told to get back to work. Sometimes I wonder if we even existed. The beach was amazing, white sand and clear blue water but there were very few (hard, uncomfortable plastic) lounge chairs and almost no shade.

Review:   Nice place but this is definitely the Aussie tourist hot spot. Snorkelling is good and it has great access to other activities on the other islands. Ferry's get you to and from here.

Review:   We stayed here with 7 families and had an outstanding time, there is a huge amount for kids to do and they still ask when we are going back. Some of the units need to be updated and the pools could possibly do with upgrading but the price maybe reflects that compared with some other venues. Once I got past the fact we were on a resort island (there is no getting away from that other than visiting the other two resorts or the shop at the marina) and you pay for everything other than beach/ water toys and towels we relaxed and had a great time! Would recommend this place for relaxed families.

Review:   We stayed in a studio garden bure and the room was fantastic. Overall I think this resort is more suited to families with slightly older children than mine (a baby and a toddler) there would be a lot to keep school age and up children entertained. At the time of our visit the main restaurant was closed for refurbishment which meant dining choice was very limited, once that is reopened I think I would give 4 stars.

Review:   Very friendly staff, great for the kids. Food is ok and sometimes very good. The beach area is very good and the pools are a great way to let the kids burn off energy while you relax. Bula bikes are a great idea.
