We are just back from 9 nights at the Radisson and would definitely stay there again. We have stayed at many resorts on Denarau and this was our favourite by far. The suite we were in was huge and had everything you could ever need for a family.
Our kids loved the pool and this is where we spent the majority of our time. It was big enough that even with the resort almost at capacity you had plenty of room to yourself. There is a great adults pool and swim up bar and the best thing about the pool was its large sails that created plenty of shade. This meant we could stay in the pool longer without being in the direct sun and getting burnt and also seemed to keep the water cooler than the other resorts we visited. There was a great slide and a few shallow pools for the younger children.
We didn’t use the kids club but I did see them around the resort and the staff were very hands on and didn’t just supervise the children they actually joined in the games. The kids always looked like they were having a great time and they seemed to have the same staff each day which is nice for consistency.
The staff seemed genially friendly and the staff that we had contact with always remembered our names and came to say hi to the kids. As mentioned the hotel was almost at capacity so this was pretty impressive when you consider the number of people they would come into contact with daily. I would like to give a special mention to Mere in reservations who answered all of our questions while booking and the lead up to our stay. Mere was always prompt to respond and very helpful. Also Una at the front desk who’s smiling face greeted us most days as we returned to the resort and would come over to say hi to our kids. In fact every staff member we had contact with was very friendly and went out of their way to ensure we had a great stay.
For those of you who have visited Fiji you would have heard the term “on Fiji time” well this does not apply at the Radisson. Everything runs smoothly and all requests are met promptly and with a smile. A good example of this is when Vika from the front desk ran to get me uncooked rice to try and save my iPhone that went for a swim with me. I had read leaving it in rice for 48 hours would draw out the water…..sadly this isn’t the case!
The free wifi was a great bonus and this meant not having to leave my family to go to the business centre to check emails and I could take stunning photo's of the location and rub it in to my friends and family on facebook :)
We had a fantastic stay in will be back next year for sure!!
