My family stayed at the Hideaway for 7 nights in early August 2013. From what I read here I was expecting the staff to be utterly marvellous and friendly but we didn't experience that at all. They were just ordinary staff and no friendlier than any others, and no one remembered our names or anything like that.
Anyway, we found the grounds to be lovely and I really liked the decor in the bure we were in, but like others have said, some things are a bit tired and worn. There are no TVs in the room, so be aware of that if you have kids you were hoping to get some downtime from by putting them in front of the telly! The rooms are very dark too... there's insufficient lighting in there.
The breakfast buffet was included in our package and was really good - cereals, eggs whichever way you wanted, toasted sandwiches made to order, bacon, tomatoes, hash browns, baked beans, fruit and yoghurt and juice. There is a great little hamburger and sub stand by the pool which is well worth it - hamburgers for round $6FJD, though it closes at 4 pm. My hubby and I both got Fiji belly on the trip a few days into our stay there. I had a massage at the resort as it was included in the price but it wasn't enjoyable. She massaged my head first with massage oil leaving it awfully greasy - yuck! The beach isn't great for hanging around on unless you have shoes because the shells cut the feet - it's not a place with soft, fine sand. The pool though is lovely and a nice place to hang out and watch resort life go by,
I'd say the thing which let the resort down was the staff... the kitchen/wait staff in particular were not very accommodating or friendly. And note that the resort is a 90-min drive from the airport. Overall we had a good stay but if the staff had been friendlier and more helpful the stay would have been an excellent one. We did have a problem in our room with the bathroom door not closing, which they came and fixed the next day, and the wardrobe door getting stuck and not opening, which they came and fixed straight away,so I was pleased about that.
