We stayed in the Fiji and for the price (we caught the last week of in-season pricing) it was not a bad value. We had a nice living area, small kitchen, dining area, screened in patio and of course 1br/1ba. Our "cabana" was pretty clean, except there was a little mold in the shower; it was not anything outrageous, something you'd find in an older house in the grout but nonetheless it was still there. The furnishings and fixtures were definitely a little dated. If there was any complaint that we would have is the fact that our only real AC unit was connected and actually controlled by another guests' room. We had a wall unit and ceiling fans, but at night the AC vent was our only source of real cold air in the bedroom and because it was controlled by the other guests we were at their mercy. The windows were left open and fans on as well for most of our stay because it did get fairly warm, which provided nice circulation during the day but at night it definitely got hot. The location of the resort is great though, only a block away from the beach and a short walk -- maybe 2 or 3 blocks -- from Siesta Key Village where all the restaurants and shops are. Overall we didn't spend a ridiculous amount of money, we had a nice place to sleep and rest, and we were able to walk EVERYWHERE which we loved!
