2nd visit (12 years between visits) Lush grounds. Simple Resort beachfront bures are nice )with a small pool). Not too expensive including the basic onsite restaurant. Odd location near the port - but when you’re there very relaxing. Don’t expect a 5 star experience. Prefer to Denarau. Recommend.

Room tip: Invest in beachfront bures

We did not have a good experience. We stayed in the “resort” for 2 weeks and had to ask the staff to change the sheets during that time because they were dirty. When I called reception to ask how I could ensure my sheets were changed I was told to let the housekeeper know when she came, I had to point out that I didn’t intend to spend the day in the room to let the housekeeping staff know to do this. On several occasions the rooms were serviced, and no clean towels were left, or not enough towels were left, when we called to get towels, we were told on one occasion that someone would bring them (no one showed up) and on two other occasions we were told that they were still washing the towels and they would be delivered, they came at 5pm. On yet another occasion I returned to the room as the housekeeper was leaving and asked for clean towels and she said I would need to get her the dirty towels from the bathroom so she could replace them. When we finally did get clean towels, they often smelt of mildew and were unpleasant to use. The room was not cleaned properly while we stayed in it, there was hair on the shower walls, mould growing in the shower, the surfaces and floors had dust and dirt on them. Overall, the cleanliness of the room was not good enough. This “resort” is advertised as 3.5 star, which indicates that it is above average, from my viewpoint this “resort” would be lucky to meet average, and in terms of cleanliness I would say below average. We were so unhappy that we left the resort for 2 nights to have a break from our holiday and travelled to Suva to stay in a 3-star hotel that was far superior in every single way!
The food available at the “resort” is of poor quality, we were charged almost $30 Fijian dollars for what was a frozen pizza, all the other food we ate at the hotel seemed to be deep fried frozen food.

On top of this we also had an issue with the air conditioning is sounded like there was an animal living the outside unit and we could hear it during the night scurrying around like it might come through the walls, I called reception and asked them to get someone to look at this, but it seems little was done. We spent every night listening in what sounded like rats burrowing into the walls of our bure.

Concierge service is the front desk person who when requested to book a taxi inflated the price, while sitting in reception we heard a price quoted for a taxi that was 4 times what we had paid the precious day. Often, we took taxi’s back to the hotel for a third less than reception at the hotel organised one for. When we questioned the price quoted it would suddenly drop by 20%, when you are staying at a hotel you expect the staff to assist you without feeling like they are ripping you off.

Very disappointing.

We stayed here for 2 nights however the weather wasn't kind to us, The driveway entrance to this resort is full of big pot holes and the path is slippery. The dinning area is dark and the floor is very slippery. There are no shades to walk to the villas and in rainy weather its a a nightmare

The food is pricey and the villas are great but needs renovation. The staff were great however need to be mindful of the time.

The resort transport is very very expensive!

Room tip: Get the weather Gods to help you in find some sunny days if you wish to stay here

We stayed 2 nights here and definitely wished we spent our last few days in Fiji somewhere else.

The resort was pretty quiet and lacked the fun, vivacious atmosphere that the other Fijian resorts we stayed at had. Guests were mainly a mix of older people and big families.

Food here was not the best. The service wasn't great and food was slow to come out. I don't think the food hygiene practices were very good as we suffered diarrhoea from our stay.

There wasn't much to do in terms of activities. The kayak/water sports hut was unattended so we couldn't get life vests to go kayaking. We weren't particularly keen to go swimming in the ocean as it was right next to a port and industrial area. If you didn't book a villa with a private pool, there was only one small pool for other resort guests to use.

We stayed in one of the Garden Bures. It was a very large room that also had an enclosed porch. The porch had a drying rack which was handy for drying wet towels and swimmers. The hot water in the shower was unreliable and the water pressure was very low.

TLDR -

Truthfully, the photos of the resort make it look ritzier than it really is. The place is probably best for big families or groups on a budget. Book out one of the big, private villas and you'll be able to make your own fun. The bures are from the 'original' part of the resort are more neglected, and it feels more like you're staying in a caravan park.

Won't be staying here again as we definitely don't fit their target demographic.

Bula from Frist Landing, many thanks for your reviews. While I wish, you had a better experience, it is feedback like this that we learn from and use to improve. We work hard to deliver an exceptional guest experience, and it’s apparent in this case, we fell short. At the time, you were staying with us, one of our elevators was out of service for routine maintenance. For the inconvenience, it caused, I am sorry. Vinaka from the Management team
