Stayed for a week & it was most enjoyable. It was a bit windy at times during our stay, but the new adults only cove area was beautifully sheltered. Snorkeling from the beach was great. Loved all the friendly fish. One negative is that more attention could have been given to routine maintenance as our pool had gone green before any cleaning was done.

Garden bungalow was clean and spacious, comfortable and quiet. Backs onto another bungalow, but sound proofing is excellent. Great restaurant and Fijian service with a smile. Quiet water activities - snorkel, dive, kayak - no jet skies - no noise except kids playing in the pool near the bar and restaurant - no problem if you want quiet - just walk 100 metres to the new adult pool, bar, lounges and lunch.
Nice easy 20-40 minute walk on wide sandy path to the north of the island with high views over the pacific. We prefer to kayak from front of hotel about 1 km to the north west corner for good snorkeling. Take the village tour - Fijians are naturally friendly and appreciate your small purchases. If you like snorkeling, take the 15 min boat ride to manta ray channel, if the rays are in season. Any problems, see experienced asst manager Alfie who will sort it out with a smile.

Really glad we decided to stay here, a very private, quiet and tranquil place. We booked standard accommodation not beachfront which was fine. Accommodation itself was good, comfortable bed nice shower and bathroom, free wifi.

All actives are well organised and with good equipment, we enjoyed the snorkelling and village visit, beautiful beach, good bar and swimming pool.

Our main regret was that we only stayed for three days which didn't give us time to do the walks and other more time consuming activities, which we really wanted to do as they looked very interesting and worthwhile. If planning to come here we would recommend at least a week to do everything.

Food was not bad, please note however that the quality of food here was FAR better than all other resorts and restaurants that we visited throughout Fiji. So by Fijian standards excellent.

We don't have children, the resort is child friendly, which we were a little concerned about but kids were kept entertained by the beautifully warm Fijian staff. All kids there (there weren't many maybe 5-7 children) were extremely happy and active which was lovely to see. So if travelling with young children would recommend here and for those without don't worry about it.

Overall, great value for money resort, everything is new and kept in excellent condition. Good facilities and activities. We are planning to come back one day!

We have recently returned from a 5 nights stay at Paradise Cove - we left wishing we could stay another 5 nights.

We caught the Yasawa flyer from Denarau and then a seaplane back to Nadi. The resort boat is small with no toilet so I don't think appropriate for young kids.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom beach villa which was beautiful and huge. It is two large bedrooms connected by an outdoor bathroom. I had a 3yr old and 6 month old baby and I was concerned before we left that I would not feel comfortable with them being in the back room, but it was absolutely fine. I would highly recommend you take a monitor though if you have young kids. Housekeeping did a great job of keeping the rooms clean.

The kids club was great and the babysitters were fantastic. Recommend you ask for a babysitter from the kids club (Joanna, Mere, Anna) as opposed to the resort bringing someone from the local village. I had someone come from the village on day 1 and her english wasn't fantastic - not sure how much experience she had with babies. The minute I said something it was resolved and we had Joanna babysat for us the rest of time we were there and she was fantastic. My 3 yr old loved the kids club - when she had enough they would bring her to me so she was never unhappy there. There is a kids menu at lunch. Dinner is 1 dish only but always delicious and a proper meal - my daughter loved the food. Only downside was that the paths are all made from beach sand so it wasn't possible to push the pram to and from the room so we had our hands really full to and from the room - it wouldn't stop me from going again with a baby.

The food was very nice. Some nights dinner was absolutely delicious, other nights just really nice. Never ate anything I did not like. Lunch is served from an al a carte menu and they offer salads, burgers, sandwiches and some hot dishes too. Dinner was an entrée, option of 2 mains and a dessert. Breakfast was great with fresh breads, eggs cooked as you like, fruit, cereal and some pastries - you don't need much more

The restaurant, pool and bar area are all new and beautiful. The staff are amazing, friendly and helpful. They adored the kids, especially the baby and were always waiting for a cuddle. The office staff went out of their way to help. My husband and I left our phone chargers on the mainland. They got hold of a charger for us to use for the day and then had someone on the mainland buy us new chargers which arrived the next day.

Overall, the resort is small, intimate, beautiful and quiet - without it being a problem if your kids are playing and making a noise either. The beach is beautiful, although there is some coral/shells on the waters edge. If you have kids, there is a great mix between family time and adult time. I highly recommend and look forward to going back.

The guests are all either families or couples looking for a romantic getaway. If you're coming with your family, I think most would agree that it is absolutely perfect. If you're a couple on a honeymoon or looking for a romantic getaway, it's almost there, but not quite. Don't get me wrong, Paradise Cove is definitely a wonderful resort, with really amazing beachfront bures, staff, and superb diving and snorkelling spots.

The Paradise suite is really amazing, and I would recommend it if it's available. You get your own private deck, with sun loungers, a plunge pool, and swaying daybed. This is in addition to the sun loungers on the sand and the hammock which are all for your use only. The outdoor bathroom/showers were amazing! Definitely the best bathroom I've seen in Fiji (out of the 6 resorts we've tried). The beachfront bures are nice too, but not as nice as the Paradise suite.

In general, the staff are really amazing and friendly and many even learn your names. I know I'm going to forget someone, so I apologise in advance. Some of the standouts are: Mika, Jim, Sai, Sue, the brothers who played guitar (sorry I can't remember their names!), the other 2 musicians, Tim, Usa, Tiffany, Knox, Peni, Posh, Jodie, and Joanna. We were celebrating our anniversary on our last night, and Mike made us a special dessert cocktail. It's the little gestures like these that really make our stay that much more enjoyable. Thanks Mika!

The diving and snorkeling is really really great too. The sites they take you to are really just beautiful, with good visibility and they also send some staff members with you to make sure that everyone is okay. It's been years since we dove, so we did the refresher course in the pool with Jim. Jim is amazing, and so very patient. He took us on our first ocean dive and was again very patient, and taking it slow since I was a bit nervous at first. He also showed us some cool things on our dive. Jodie was also a good guide, and we got to see 2 sharks, 2 turtles, and some really big fish. The staff at the dive shop are really great and do their best to please all the guests.

We also did the secluded beach picnic, which I'd recommend. They bring an umbrella, day bed, and drop you off for a few hours with sparking wine, cheese, fruit, crackers, and your choice of lunch. It was a really great way to get away from the families and to have some quiet time alone.

The bartenders were all really great, and they made good cocktails. The wine selection is pretty decent. The food was a bit hit and miss. The breakfast was really nice, with lots of hot and cold choices. The lunch menu seemed to stay the same every day, but there was enough options so that you didn't get bored. The dinner was the one that was a bit hit and miss. Some of the dishes were really good, and some were just okay. I do understand that they have a lot of people to feed, so I commend them for having so many options available.

We really enjoyed drinking kava and hanging out with the staff in the evening. It was a great way to get to know the staff in a relaxed atmosphere. All the staff were so friendly and very generous with the kava. The band was amazing! Sorry I can't remember all your names. You all are wonderful musicians and my husband had so much fun playing guitar with you. Thank you! :)

In terms of activities, there were many options each day, which was a nice surprise to me given the other resorts I've been to. But this could be because they cater to both couples and families. So there's no shortage of things to do.

Lastly, the only downside was some of the other guests. We stay at mainly adults-only resorts, but wanted to give Paradise Cove a try. Children are supposed to be finished with their dinner by 6:30pm, but we saw quite a few families who brought their children to the later dinner (after 7pm), which was a bit unfortunate. I'm not blaming the resort as I suspect it was the families insisting on this. If you come as a couple, I'd suggest coming when it's not school holidays and maybe a bit quieter. Maybe there could be a separate, smaller dining area for adults only? I don't know. In any case, if you're a family, I'm sure you'll love this place. And if you're a couple, you can sometimes stay away from all the kids/families, but not always.

All in all, It's pretty good value for money, with the meals included as well as free wifi, so all you have to pay for are some of the excursions and any alcohol/drinks you have.

Questions & answers about the pool

redlight40 asked a question Nov 2017
Denver, Pennsylvania25 contributions
Please help... I’m trying to decide where to stay during our first trip to Fiji in late April 2018 and am flying a long way from the eastern US to get there. Right now we are staying at the Tokoriki Beach Resort the last 3 nights and on the main island the 1st night to zip line and possibly due 1 more excursion. That leaves 5 nights in-between and I think Paradise cove and Lomani Island Resort are the top 2 finals for value & location. What am I looking for? Beachfront as close to beautiful water as possible. Waves!!! (I realize I may need to travel to see them & although not a surfer would like to watch and even swim in them) eg if I can get to cloud 9 or cloud break that is good enough. Pristine beach with amazing water ... to swim snorkel and possibly a dive. Great food (super picky eater), tv in the room in case of bad weather and at night, extremely clean room with a supportive bed & private bath. I don’t care about alcohol as I’m a lightweight. Options on meal plans (if any)... like good coffee and options at breakfast and dinner. I hear Castaway and Blue lagoon are nice but I read mixed reviews. I believe the currency rate is in my favor but money is still a consideration. If it says 5 stars and costs 400-600 USD a night ideally I’d like to get what I pay for. The more free activities they offer the better, or at least many types of excursions the better. It’s just me (48) and my friend (31) who are are going, so all couples would be a bit of a downer, but all adults or families is just fine. A spa, clean warm pools and a lazy river or hot tubs plus beautiful sunsets are a must. Ideally Tripadvisior and other awards are a bonus. And room service would be a treat. I am not against the Yasawa islands which is why I picked Tokoriki the last 3 nights since its somewhat close. ** Open to other suggestions. THANK YOU Ps would I be better off staying at the Marriott on main island? I don’t want to miss out on the best of FIJI but I do want to have a truly wonderful clean resort.

Paradise cove offers amazing beach front accomodation with your own private beach lounges. The water is clean and warm and the snorkeling is good. Snorkeling with Manta Rays is also on offer at a reasonable price. Lots of other activities available. There are small waves that you can hear on the beach - but because the islands are surrounded by reefs, don’t expect great surf. paradise cove offers an adults only area that is really nice if you want to get away from the main resort pool area. You can also have meals served there. Food options are very very good - lots of choices and the dinner menu changes every 2 days. Lunch has daily specials in addition to the set menu. Showers are outdoors in a beautiful secluded outdoor area of your accomodation. Wash basins and toilet is under cover. This place is very nice.

Hi Julie, The Paradise Suites are on the main resort side. The beach houses are across the water by boat.

It's relatively easy, you have phones in each room and you can call the boat and they will come within few mins to pick you up.
