The Warwick - Coral Coast

Can anyone tell me if it is worth getting the meal package prior to staying there?

I do not have one of the Warwick's menus, so have no ideas of prices.

I have been quoted $55pp (adult) per day for the meal plan, which includes lunch and dinner.

? Can this be used also on drinks

Is it worthwhile purchasing, or better to just pay for meals as you go?

Advice appreciated soon, hopefully.

Thanks

ooops, think the $55 per day was for a child. It is more like double that.

Hi, I'm not sure if you are travelling with kids or not but we stayed there 2 yrs ago and found it worthwhile. We had the "all inclusive" - brekkylunch/dinner and local beer/wine/soft drinks and endless ice vreal for the kids. Make sure you read all the fine print to know what it includes as some are meals only!

My only comment would be that you do get sick of eating (we did anyway). We were there for 10 nights though. Our kids did love being able to get soft drink/ice creams at the pool bar when they chose by showing their wrist band! From memory there weren't a lot of other meal options close by the Warwick but we enjoyed the options at the resort.

If you are going to be doing a lot of tours etc take into account you will miss lunches.

Personally it was nice to know everything was paid for before we went. Would we get the all inclusive, probably not again but we worked it out and it was very good value for money back then.

Hope this helps a little. You will love the Warwick.

Cheers Leanne

We are just back from the Warwick a week ago and had the meals pakage paid about 60 fjd/day which gave us our meals our 5yo ate for free, it didn't include drinks, which didn't worry us as we are not big drinkers.Certainly had plenty of choices and like yourother reply it certainly was good value we thought and it was noce knowing our meals were covered and di not have to dip into our pocket to pay for meals, although we did go to the wicked walu seafood restaurant and the meal package gave us $30/head credit to eat their and was definitly worth the extra to eat out there.

Have a great time I am sure you will enjoy...if you are going to do any tours would reccomend Matthews tour...took us to a local village and into the jungle to a local school well worth 55fjd/head.

meant to ask you...what is the beach itself like where the Warwick is?

I know it's called the c. coast, but believe the beach isnt much.

the in-laws last night said the beach at the shangri la is meant to be the best around the coast area. (think they have the sand trucked in).

the beach at crusoes is meant to be better than where the warwick is.

what is warwick beach like?

We are staying at the Warwick in September and have chosen to go away from our travel agent and purchase the all inclusive deal when we get over to the resort. Our room includes breakfast as it is but to upgrade to the all inclusive rate it is costing us (2 adults) F$250 per room per day which includes lunch/dinner all your local drinks and ice cream. We thought this was good value seeing as though our travel agent was going to charge us double the amount so we are going to pay for th upgrade when we check in.. Since we are getting married there we are going to hang around the resort a bit so we are going to get alot of value out of it and not having to worry about money to pay for your meals etc is even better!!!!

Have you seen this deal? $199PP for all meals for 6 days?

pacificholidays.com.au/html/view_package.php…

This won't include drinks, apart from tea and coffee and juice at mealtimes in the buffet. There is a drinks package but it is quite expensive.

Have gone with Pacific Holidays twice now and IMO they are hard to beat price wise.

As to the beach, it's not a great beach but it's OK - lots of photos on this site to give you an idea. Certainly, it does not compare to the outer island beaches. There is some live coral and quite a few fish to see if you go snorkelling. It's a lovely resort.

Meal packages are great if you are a small eater then perhaps not. If you are staying on coral coast you must visit Natadola beach it is the best crystal clear water and yes white beach sand!
