Best budget resort for 2 toddlers???

We will have 4 days in Fiji and am arriving with 2 toddlers. I have looked at Barefoot lodge and Otto &Fanny's. Both look fantastic. My concern is from what I can see, it takes a half day to arrive at Otto and Fanny's on the Flyer and as we are arriving after a 23hr flight with 2 active toddlers, that just may push me over the edge. Any suggestions on a budget lodge that is easier to get too? And Im not looking for a kids club but some where that I may be able pay a local teenager to play with my boys for an hour or so on the beach while I catch up on some sleep.

Have a look at First Landing Resort on the mainland. Only about 1/2 an hour from the Airport.

We stayed at the Hideway Resort on the coral coast with our two kids (4yr, 2yr olds). It's about 90mins from the airport. It was lovely for children, small and friendly. Babysitters were $5fjd an hour. Enjoy

Hi if you want to head to the Yasawa Islands and something a bit closer and easier look at Octopus Resort. THey have their own tranfer boat and can pick you up from the airport and take you straigh out there. Saves overnighting and getting the long trip up on the flyer. and they have plenty of babysitters. Mana is a good family resort only an hour boat trip away too.

A fantastic family resort in the Mamanuca group of islands is Plantation Island resort. It is very geared towards families and kids clubs. It is on an island (not the mainland - which you should avoid if you want a tropical island experience). All travel companies have deals for this island.
