My girlfriend and I headed to Fiji for 3 weeks in Oct / Nov 2006, with Lomalagi being our third of four stops.
The Good: Wyse (the barman), Rakesh (the chef), and the rest of the staff are a delight. They'll do whatever they can to be of service. Stunning views and spacious villas (with terrible decor). Sam and the Dolphins are amazing. A trip to area villages is incredible. The church service in Wyse's village was definitely a highlight.
The Bad: The pool in particular is in a sorry state of repair. Deck chairs were dirty. Umbrellas were broken. We stayed for 7-nights, and killed a total of 12 cockroaches in 2 villas (they moved us after 5 nights only after we insisted on the move). Also, we fished a couple of cockroaches out of the pool and actually cleaned the pool ourselves one day!
The Ugly: They actually accused us of bringing the cockroaches with us! (we also saw 2 in 'main areas' of the resort well away from our luggage and such). AND, we certainly didn't take any to the other places we stayed! Further, we offerred them an opportunity to make it right by giving us some sort of discount. They didn't. All they did was buy us a bottle of wine on our final night. Yeah... that helped...? As another reviewer has mentioned, you're going to have dinner with Collin and Terry (the owners) if you stay here. Not so bad for a night or two, but.... well, that certainly wasn't a highlight of the trip. If you want to have privacy, you can eat in your villa. Heck... you can even feed the cockroaches if you like!
