The room was decent and clean enough (double was $60). However, the staff are very pushy, trying to sell their tours, and then hit on all the female guests at night. It's quite a club med 18-30 feel, not the relaxed Fijian atmosphere we were hoping for. There are nicer hotels round the corner, for the same budget, with a much better atmosphere and food.
What most annoyed me was that, as we were not sure how long we were going to stay we initially said we would stay just one night. After a long flight we decided to stay another night and sleep in the next morning (checkout is 10am). Instead of assuming we were to stay another night however, two of the staff woke us up by banging on the door. I answered to tell them that no, we'd like to stay another night. Five minutes later we were woken again by loud bangs on the door and a guy telling us one of us had to go to reception.
Don't go to this place expecting to be treated like an adult. You'll be treated like a child and told what to do and where to go.
