We stayed here mid February and was a little nervous given the recent flooding. However, the weather was perfect during our stay on-off rain showers that would only last 20mins and then a mix of sun and overcast. We only had breakfast included but this was fantastic, the omelets are the best I have ever had as were the mini orange muffins. We had the Lovo buffet for dinner, was nice but I certainly wouldnt rave about it. Had a couple of meals across the road at the pub - these were ok, but definitely better off paying a bit more and eating at the resort. Resort is very clean and they do their best to keep ants under control (to no avail in my opinion!) There is ant spray in the room and staff come and spray the floors & walls too. Lots of little lizards & frogs but soon got used to them. We stayed in a Frangipani Bure (99) it was close to the road (lots of trucks, but didnt wake us) and very close to the beach. We had an issue with the ceiling fan and also not enough milk and as soon as we mentioned it, it was rectified immediately. Small fridge with little freezer box in the room along with little milk cartons & sachets of coffee, sugar, tea. These are always messy to use and so it would have been good if a dishcloth was supplied. Safe inside the room and both indoor & outdoor showers.
Some of the things to do that were free: Kayaking, snorkelling, mountain trek, bush walk, movies, spa, tennis, table tennis
Definitely recommend heading along the beach just past the resort for massage $25FJD for 30mins. We spent most of our time swimming in the lagoon which was just beautiful and we were generally the only ones in there! (didnt see any sea snakes thankfully)
Cocktails are around $22FJD unless during happy hour when some drop to around $16FJD
Resort is 30mins drive to Sigatoka. One of the local taxis picked us up as he was going that way and only charged us the usual bus fare of $2 each. Taxi to Nadi airport cost us $140 - possibly on the high side but it was a lovely car and air cond and the driver, Joe (Debs tours) was extremely friendly and gave full commentary all the way
The gym has 2 exercise bikes, which the electrics didnt work but were still functional. A working treadmill, weight machine and hand weights. The air con in this room was basically non existent, so get prepared to work up a major sweat in 5mins! Also, very dated/rusty equipment and no sanitiser
Staff very friendly and happy to help in any way they can. They even prepared us freshly made muffins & banana bread for our early morning trip back to the airport. Staff are everywhere at all hours of the day/night and will always greet you with BULA! Don't leave cigarettes or lighters outside your Bure overnight - these will go missing!
Overall, a lovely place to stay for our first holiday to Fiji and especially if you want to get away from everything and have peace and quiet and do very little. But next time, i would probably stay at Denerau where there is more to do, close by. (for example we really wanted to go Jet Skiing but it would have cost $330FJD each as it was over an hour away to get there)
