Raffles is a great airport hotel. Coming in from Australia at around 7pm (Fiji time) we always look forward to getting though customs and know that the Shuttle Bus will be there ready and waiting for us and that its only a matter of half an hour before we are able to sit down to a quiet drink with dinner. We have stayed at this hotel a few times now and have always found Reception to be very courteous and efficient. In fact all staff are very good.
We usually stay the night before going out to the islands and one night on the way back. This time we stayed for two and found it a bit long, but still relaxing before the flight home.
Be a bit wary of the shop here. The prices are a lot dearer than at Plantation Island shop or at the airport. I got caught unfortunately, with the Pure Fiji Gift Packs and some clothes for presents. But in saying that, its convenient.
We always find the rooms very clean and the service great. The Restuarant is a bit dear but I guess if you convert it back to Australian, then not too bad at all. Breakfast opens at 6am which for the Australian flight in the morning, perhaps if they could open 5.45 am would be better as usually there is quite a few waiting around to get breakfast before going over to the airport.
All in all a great stop over hotel, very convenient, great shuttle bus, and nothing seems a problem.
Vinaka to all at Raffles.
See you again next year
