Just come back from 7 nights on Plantation Island, our 5th visit in 8 years. We stayed in a beautiful bure on the beach front, we were so blessed to get one that had 2 bedrooms. The staff were even more friendly and helpful than ever before. Every day our room was cleaned to perfection by Emi or as I... More

This was our first trip to Fiji, we Just returned from a 7 night stay at Plantation Island and 3 nights at Raddison Blu. After 2 nights at Plantation I was ringing my travel agent to see if we could leave and move back to Denarau Island. Unfortunately we would have been out of pocket quite a bit so chose... More

Beautiful location with beach at the door step. The rooms really need a good revamp or at least a coat of paint. The bathroom wall didn't even go up to the ceiling so we could clearly hear each other when on the toilet. The safe in our room wasn't working but thankfully was promptly fixed and no problems after that.... More

Stayed for a week recently . Beautiful location. The resort is tired in parts but they are spending money doing it up. What they have done is lovely. The buffets are good value for money and a reasonable standard. During our stay we had buffet dinner a few nights, dinner at Anandas twice which was quite average. The Old Copra... More

Idyllic location. Resort is not plush, would benefit from a revamp of facilities, and the restaurants are basic, but lots to do, and lots of fun to be had if you go on the understanding this is not a 5 star resort. For the cost of the holiday this exceeded expectations. Lots to keep kids and adults amused; great beach,... More

We just got back from a 7 night stay in a 1 bedroom garden terrace. The room was ideal with two small children as we were very central to everything (close to the reception building) but still surrounded by beautiful gardens. The room was clean, spacious and had everything we needed. We used a cot which was old style but... More
