We've just returned from our annual family trip, this time we wanted an all inclusive package, which this certainly was, booked through "Specialist Holidays" it was very easy and efficient. Kids are 11, 8 and 5 years.
The location is unbeatable - surf break, day spa, beach, reef and kids club.
Food was really good, kids meals that were in the inclusive package were standard fare, plenty of variety. Breakfasts were great. Bar and restaurant service was very slow at peak times, but staff were always friendly and very accomodating.
Kids club had good activities, but could have benefited from some "out of sun" activities during the hottest part of the day. Supervision probably not as good as it could have been, but once again, staff so friendly.
We did the Sigatoka river tour and visited a village, highly recommend this, one of the highlights.
The pool area was great, kids loved the slide (watch out - it goes fast and we had a split lip on the first go, but once kids learnt to ride it properly they wouldn't get off it). You have to compete for umbrellas, and we often found that people had put their towels on the recliners under the umbrellas to "bags" them by 0730hrs. They need some more. Aqua aerobics was fun as was the volleyball.
The snorkelling, diving and surfing was excellent. Watersports included in cost (not diving), and kayaking great too. Most importantly, the day spa.......I had two excellent treatments, the therapist I had gave such a good massage, one of the best I've ever had.
The local village encourages people to visit their church service, which we did, didn't understand a word of course, but the singing was absolutely amazing. Take some money to put in the giving plate. We also took books and pencils etc to give to the kids.
The size of the 2 bedroom bures is excellent (with lounge area), and it is nice that there is no highrise but there are only 4 and the bathrooms are pretty old - taps dripping and leaking, but functional. Also, they are close to the bar, which sadly has a VERY loud disco from 10pm to 1am - this pretty much ruined the tranquillity of the location and meant we had broken sleep, despite earplugs. The staff did what they could to have it turned down and were very sympathetic. The constant music by the poolside also gets rather tiresome, but if loud music doesn't bother you, then it won't be a problem.
So in summary, location and scenery, picture perfect, really truly beautiful, staff so friendly and helpful, if you get a bure away from the bar, perfect, but if close, the noise is really intrusive.
