The resort has a nice restaurant and the staff are very helpful and friendly, in fact I should have given them a 5/5. The food is great however after a few days you wanna venture out of there. My family went to another resort called Jean Costeaux (I think that's what it's called. You drive through Savusavu over to the other side of the island and through a really really muddy slippery dangerous road to get to. Wasn't worth the experience as it was overly expensive for a 3 star food and service). Try the Joseph's bar and restaurant downtown.
The activities provided by the resort is excellent and you pay per person about $40 on average to go. The childcare is excellent. There is really no sandy beach at the resort. Lots of mosquitoes but is to be expected as the resort backs up to a rainforest. Our kids did ok given we applied bug repellent with deet. The bures are comfy for a family of 4 as they have two bedrooms and a living room. Clean enough but nothing fancy. they are dated. The golf course is not a good one that we didn't even use it. I could live with all that however, I will never go back because of Air Pacific terrible service! After talking carefully and booking through them as stopping in Fiji was one leg of our South Pacific traveling, they still changed our flight dates last minute. As a result, we were able to change some o our hotel bookings but not all. Sofitel Nadi could not issue us a refund for a one night stopover that didn't happen bc the airline changed our itenerary last minute and flew us interisland same day- after telling us they couldn't in the first place. Then we were in Suva for three nights bc we missed our flight out to Tonga. This was indeed a very expensive trip. It would have served us better to go from the U.S. to New Zealand then Tahiti, Cook Islands and avoid Fiji all together. Oh oh, may I mention the delays at the airport? In Tonga it was an overnight delay on the main island. Delays for 4 hours in Nadi waiting to come back to the U.S. and it was absolutely difficult for a family with 2 kids. Also when we initially arrived in Nadi from LAX, they only had two officers serving us at immigration and then it went down to only one. They had a nice Fijian band playing nice music but I would prefer they offer more help serving visitors at arrival, especially when expecting a full 747 flight! My understanding is that tourism is a major industry for them. It didn't convey at the airport.
Overall, our two (one of which unintented) weeks in Fiji was awesome- amidst the super chaos you have to make it work. It's a magical place full of mountains, waterfalls and rivers. Warm hearted people - I love them! I won't visit anytime soon though. Air pacific was so disheartening. I wrote to them twice and asked if they could do something about our Sofitel refund - which was only one of so many mess-up but that was the one we felt we couldn't do anything about, and never heard a thing except an automated reply both times indicating that my message had been forwarded to...an invisible office with invisible people?
