This resort, like just about everything about Nadi, is treated by tourists as a place to pass through. I wouldn't book to stay more than 2 - 3 nights here but if you stick to that you will be fine.
The setting is peaceful, tranquil even, when jets are not passing over. The resort is less than 10 klm from Nadi International so you will notice the planes. Mostly however, jets are not passing over so it is not an issue.
The friendly staff do their best to give you the "fiji resort" experience - music, singing, dancing, fire stick twirling - they do it all. The bar staff are ready with a welcome smile and a cocktail. The food is adequate and wait service typical of second tier places - good but could be better.
The fact is, this is not a Denarau Island big name hotel. It is not situated on one of the stunning Yasawa Islands. It is not new.
It is also not precocious and it is not expensive relative to other parts of the mainland.
The "bures" are timber, tin roof holiday units. Ours had a main bedroom, tired but clean bathroom, lounge with two additional flat couch single beds (not fold out bed couches). The open kitchen had a microwave, electric frypan, sink, empty bar fridge, plates, cutlery, glasses and basic cooking implements. The windows have storm shutters and flyscreens - no glass. There are ceiling fans in both main rooms and aircon in the main bedroom. We didn't use the a/c in July - night temps of 18 C were comfortable for sleeping with shutters open. We did burn mozzie coils but didn't use the provided nets. The whole thing was comfortable and practical without being anything other than a three star accomodation that it is.
The bures face the water. Ours had three steps across the lawn to be on the beach. The beach faces a large tidal flat and is only good for paddling not swimming. There is no coral for snorkeling here. The beach is not wide and becomes dark sand/mud at the water's edge. It looks pretty in pictures but you wouldn't want to roll around in the mud.
The resort is at the end of a rough dirt road. We arrived at night and my wife and teenager told me later they wondered what Dad had got them into. They both were impressed when daylight presented the resort setting.
The resort has a small pool, bar and main restaurant area and smaller pizza/pasta restaurant. The resort is not surrounded by bars or restaurants or shops - any of this requires a taxi ride. Any tourist sites also are more than a walk away. We found this to be the case pretty much everywhere we stayed in Fiji - use the facilities of the resort or catch a lift. Accept that and you have nothing to complain about. Nadi is about 7 - 8 klm away. Touts are an issue in town. Nadi has several good supermarkets if you want to self cater. We didn't and between the main restaurant and the pizza pasta place we were catered for. Nadi also has souvenir shopping but I would do this elsewhere due to the "tout" issue.
This was the cheapest place we stayed for the whole 14 night trip at about $120AU per night. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it as a short stay option before travelling to highlight destinations.
