Thank you Sofitel and your delightful staff for a great holiday in Fiji. We travelled as a family of four (two boys 6 and 8).
Staff - always helpful, some exceptionally friendly and warm
Room - had a great night sleep every night - small but adequate
Bathroom - small, leaky shower, met our needs (fresh towels daily catered for the leaky shower and wet floor)
Breakfast - we had this included in our rate - plenty for all to enjoy
Salt - went once and wouldn't go back - too hot to eat out in daytime, too pricey
V - went once - very nice - just expect Fiji time for service
Parisienne cafe - quaint and enjoyable
Lagoon for buffet dinner - overpriced - didn't eat enough for good value
Tour desk - showed us a couple of trips available - we chose two which were fantastic for us and kids - Tivua Island cruise, and Vanua River tour
Check-in and out - fine
Kids club - was quiet most of the time so our boys were quite bored - it would be good if there was a weekly newsletter with set activities so kids can be excited about going - daily blackboard outside club was out-of-the-way (our room was at other end of resort) and staff didn't seem to follow the list anyway. Don't know where all the other kids were.
Pool - great - just too hot to use between 10-4 although plenty of red swimmers out there! Slide - lots of fun
Summary - great trip with family for relaxation and some fun - good hotel but would be nice to be cleaned up a little (not just the cyclone damage) - needs some grooming. Our first trip to Fiji - we hope to be back!
