On our trip to Fiji, we had booked four different hotels. This was by far the worst. We booked the pool side room, and not only were greeted by an extremely rude member of staff who sat down in the room and did not know the names of the restaurants around us, or gave us any information, the room was also appalling. Management claimed that they had been 'newly refurbished', which was a complete lie, there was a dirty hand print on the wall, part of the mirror was broken and the whole room was dirty. We paid the same at all the other hotels we had stayed at and got a LOT nicer for our money. I have never had to complain at a hotel before, but we had to here. There were diggers and tape just all around the resort, and the supermarket was half collapsed with rubble in, only half of it was open.
After complaining to management, and discussing the issue for three hours, we were upgraded to Lomani, which was amazing. An incredible resort. All i can say in regards to Plantation though, is you can get a lot more for your money at some of the other hotels such as Naviti. This was not at all what we expected and thoroughly disappointing.
