Just awesome people in a an awesome place.

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 16 May 2024via mobile
Genuinely the most relaxing and welcoming holiday we have had in years. The staff at double tree (Toksy, Sera, Sala, Lavenia, Sevanaia to name a few) have made our week stay just idyllic.

We are a same sex couple and for anyone that is wondering about any cause of concern, don’t worry. As with all places, PDA is just not needed (whatever your orientation). The staff treat everyone like family.

The food is really good, the drinks well (!) measured and atmosphere is family friendly.

We will definitely come again.
Date of stay: May 2024
Room Tip: Definitely do the Fijian buffet night and if you like sea food do that one too.
Trip type: Travelled as a couple

Day one at the ''Resort'' let me say we have been to Fiji at least 15 times in the past 25 years, we are not complainers but this place is a DUMP.
Arrived at 4pm, no one at reception, finally got to our 1980s ''room'' i Honestly cannot believe the Hilton would put its name to the state of the rooms in the facility, its shocking.
We left one of our three bags at the airport (totally our fault not the hotels) but when my wife went to reception she came back in tears as the lady at the front desk declared she could not help nor provide my wife with a pen to write down the Nandi Airports number........
In the room meanwile im wrestling to get the fridge out because its not working and i discover its unplugged and the milk in it is out of date by 10m days, third world country meets third world resort .........
The room was from the 1980's I tried at least 8 times to call reception and room service to get some ice, after 50 mins i finally got an awnser to say room service was not answering ....... like the two ronnies........ mean time my wife has called QANTAS after paying $15 for ''premium'' Wi Fi - WTAF......... anyway we got the fridge plugged in the off milk out and headed out to dinner at their top al a carte ''restaurant'' we waited 1.15 hours for starters, were served white wine at room (30 degree temp) and the food was cold ............... This place is dated train wreck, we are actually trying to move to another hotel tomorrow we cant stay here for 5 days..............
Im not a complainer nor is my wife but this place is a time warp, i cannot believe the Hilton Brand would stoop so low as to have it branded with their logo.

Room tip: The Place is a DUMP !

Room - We took an interconnecting Ocean View Bure. The room was spacious and beds super comfy.

Breakfast- Service was great and lots of variety to choose from.

Activities - They have these swinging day beds situated in front of the Ocean bures (my personal choice for lazing about)

Room tip: Bring your own Drinks and munchies.

Our family went here for a few days. The ferry service is very reliable and we had no issue leaving our rentals at the carpark for 5 days. Check-in went smoothly and the staff told us what was available as far as food, entertainment and activities were available. The special nights, e.g. seafood night, Asian night, meat night, are definitely worth going to. The food was terrific and there was plenty of choice. The boys went target shooting one morning and had fun. A couple of us went fishing off the beach and enjoyed the quiet and the scenery. Others played volleyball in the pool, which had others joining in very quickly.
The staff were amazing. They made sure we were all looked after and were always ready to help.

Room tip: If you love having drinks as the sun goes down, this is the place. You can sit in the bar, sit on the rock-wall or take a sunset cruise.

My experience staying at DoubleTreeHilton was mostly good with a few annoying things that could have been sorted easily but were not. So we booked a Bure which gives a view of the ocean and the sunrise and sunsets. The one thing that annoyed me was they don’t tell you you’re sharing a wall with a neighbour. So if your neighbour is noisy, loud or moves furniture around youre basically in for a disturbed sleepless night! The room service is not great and they do forget. We asked for a new safe and never got one. One last thing is if you book a tour to an island or reef or whatever, check that youre not picking up other individuals and then they take you on a bumsteer and you basically end up doing a tour for someone else. In our case a surfer. Rosie tours need to be more transparent! We were meant to visit the great reef and did eventually but missed out on the sandbar because the boat driver ran around this surfer! We paid $300 AUD so we expected a better service and did not get that! Now the food at doubletree is exceptional!! As a vegetarian it was a smorgasbord! The staff are amazing and while they do forget the odd thing they are the most beautiful people. The swimming, the coconuts and visiting islands great experience! Wandering around is generally a peaceful experience, It can get noisy around the pool area as people bring their kids. Overall though the experience was good! Not exceptional but good.
If youre wanting to do other tours or visit islands i don’t recommend staying here as there is a lot of travel back and forth and other people are also picked up from other resorts, so it can be a lot. I will be staying closer to port Denarau next time! Double tree is just that little bit too far.

Room tip: Do your research! Work out if you want to travel less if youre going to do tours or visit islands.

The accomodation at double tree resort on Sonaisali island was an amazing and exciting experience which offered everything from friendly staff to food to entertainment. Head Chef Harsha and co chef Nilesh were very accomodating to our different food choices and even went off menu to ensure we were 100% satisfied with our meals. Concierge Vuni was extremely helpful and made sure we were right at home. The housekeeping Ruci was top class and made sure our rooms were perfect every day. ALL Food and beverage staff at the resort espically Makelesi were very welcoming and catered to our every need. Overall we had an awesome time at the resort and are definitely coming back for our future trips! We fully recommend families to pick double tree resort as their accommodation is totally worth it.
