Review:   Great place and great service. The staff was excellent from the moment we arrived to the goodbye. They made us feel very welcome and like we were in a second home. The happy hours in the bar at sunset with quiz and games organised was fabulous and a lot of fun. Daily activities organised with snorkling at very good spots. Our room had a small pool facing the waterfront which is a must. Free paddleboard and kayaks for guests use and the water is quite shallow as Tropica is naturally sheltered making a good and relaxed afternoon activity. The musicians are the best I've ever heard playing live, with the staff joining them in happy mood. Staff dedication and service friendly and professional at the best level. And most of all making us feel like family. The best place we ever experienced and recommend to everyone if you are looking for a special celebration in Fiji.

Review:   All the reviews about the friendliness and helpfulness of staff are true - there is a very warm atmosphere here. Facilities are good / pool is nice (although got very murky at the beginning of our stay that was rectified) and it's nice to have free access to paddle boards and snorkels. Food quality is the biggest gripe. For me the restaurants were of a quality where in the outside world I would go once and not complain too much but never return. The problem is that when staying here you have to return three times a day! Quality of beef was good but all other meat fairly bad (most chicken is brown meat, pork was fatty and inedible). Menu descriptions sound great but the reality presented usually falls short. The down side of the 'family feel' is that in our case, and in talking to other guests, we feel bad to complain because everyone is so nice! Getting off the resort to other food options is difficult and costly. Service is slow, sometimes painfully so, and especially at breakfast. The beach is muddy and full of sharp stones so nobody uses it. If you are looking for a beach holiday this is not the place for you. Accommodation is fairly basic and badly lit (we were in garden room). Apparently it is due for refurbishment in may 2017 which I think will improve the experience a lot if done well. There are plenty of activities each day on the blackboard. Some are free and some are charged - be sure to clarify before you sign up. On our first day we went for a snorkelling trip we assumed was free that wasn't. Happy hour is a real highlight - staff light torches and sing songs. Half price cocktails are a little deceptive - they are around $18FD during the day and up to $30FD during happy hour, then discounted to half price. I smell a rat here! It's great that the island is adult only and the attitude of the staff really helps create a relaxing atmosphere. This place needs to get some essential details right for it to be somewhere that I would return, however.

Review:   Absolutely lovely resort on the small island Malolo. Amazing service and singing performance performed by staff every night. Plenty of water sport activities possible: hobby cat for sailing, kayaks, snorkeling equipment, stand up paddle boards. Good food and tasty Fijian tapas. Clean swimming pool. Would come back here any time.

Review:   We stayed here recently for our honeymoon and it was perfect. The people running Tropica are fantastic, especially the activities staff who were able to arrange a private beach picnic for my wife's birthday. Stunning location too with many beachfront bures. Definitely consider this resort for romantic getaways of 4+ nights

Review:   Such a peaceful vacation spot, very much geared towards couples. The staff is wonderful, Sam, Kara Suku, and Captain Ace made our stay exceed our expectations. The included water activities are so much fun, awesome snorkeling from the island, or from a kayak. I definitely recommend checking out Cloud 9. The only critique I would have is; I think it would have been a bit more enjoyable had there been an engaging bartender. We visited a couple other resorts before we returned home, and that seemed to be the norm, so perhaps that's just me. All in all, I would absolutely return.
