This place has some really good things going for it, and some real challenges. Overall, it's a nice place, but I wouldn't stay here again if I returned to Fiji.
The friendliness of the people is their strongest point. Every staff member greets you with "bula" (welcome) each time they see you, and they learn your name. Flowers on your bed each time your room is made up is a wonderful idea.
The resort is set between the highway and the ocean, but road noise never bothered us. It's on a lagoon, so when the tide is out you can't swim or snorkel in the shallow water. But the one period a day when you can snorkel it is really good. It is especially good snorkeling for beginners because there's lots to see even where it is shallow enough to stand up. It's disconcerting that they schedule things like village tours during high tide.
Our room was excellent. We had an ocean front duplex bure with an outside (and inside) shower. We never used the inside shower. The room was large, but the one chair was hard to sit on. We sat out on the porch often. There is no TV or radio, and internet access is an extra charge.
Breakfast is included with your room. However, you can get an all inclusive package for F$135 per person per day. The limitations were quite restrictive--it's good 10 AM to 10 PM, only local draft beer of wine or spirits, everyone in your room has to take it for the whole time. We didn't get it, and lived happily on about F$55 pp/day.
We were given a copy of our bill the day before we checked out. I pointed out that we had been double charged for lunch the previous day and asked that the extra charge be removed. When we checked out the following day, the duplicate charge was still on our bill, and then it was finally removed. Friendliness does not equal competence.
