“Great resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

The Sofitel is one of my favourite resorts in Denarau, the rooms are comfortable, the food very nice and fairly priced, and they have a lot of activities for everyone. A few problems with housekeeping are the only thing that tainted the stay as they would service the room late and often mistook the "please make my room" sign for "do no disturb".

Apart from that, the stay was great, the whole family had fun, and we will definitely come back.

We've stayed at a number of other hotel resorts in Fiji and they are fairly similar, with just a slight variation in nuances. Not too much stood out for us at Sofitel, but it was a pleasant stay. The kids enjoyed the wee water slide (I haven't seen any other hotel pools with one) and the pool layout made for enjoyable swimming. As with most other resorts, a lot of selfish people put towels on the pool deck chairs early in the morning (and don't use the chairs most of the day), so it can be hard to find an available deck chair by the pool.

The beach was good and when we were there we noticed that it was less windy this end of Denarau than the Raddison / Wyndham end. Bring your own movies because the TV resolution for the inhouse system is abysmal. It was good that they offer free Internet, albeit you need to pay to get decent speeds.

Overall... friendly staff, good facilities, nice layout... a solid choice!

My husband and I were booked in here through our travel agent and were absolutely delighted as upon visiting the other resorts this definitely suited us best. Reminded me of our P&O cruise ship holidays as there is plenty to join in with if you choose to. We, upon reading Trip Advisor got a room down the chapel end on the 3rd floor. Perfect to retire to after all the pool action. We had the free breakfasts with bubbles and enjoyed both buffet and served ones. Food delicious. We noted children were well catered for and never a problem. Loved the staff sense of humour. Look forward to our next holiday at Sofitel Fiji.

Room Tip: chapel end 3rd floor quieter

I love this place, have just booked my Christmas and New Year stay for this year, as have a couple of my friends booked their rooms too. They are really friendly, it's perfectly positioned to get around and do things during the day, they do a great burger at the beachside bar and can whip up a great cocktail. French cafe does some lovely coffee and pastries and an absolute must is a visit to the Pure Fiji shop to stock up, I own an organic skincare company, but I still have to indulge in a load of Pure Fiji
