We go to Fiji almost every year and my wife and I got married in Fiji out on one of the islands. This time we returned with our 23 month old baby for his 1st trip to fiji. Usually we return from the island and hop straight onto the plane and return to Sydney but this time we decided to stay a night within Denarau and WOW were we surprised!!!
We were surprised on a few different areas. The Resort was amazing and we loved it, there where some painting of the walkways when we stayed but this did not impact on our stay. The room was great, very clean, clean bathroom and clean sheets. We asked for a porta cot and the cot was in good condition and also made up with a sheet. The kitchenette was clean and there was only 1 glass that wasnt 100% clean but everything was very well designed. It was a little bit of a walk to the room but it gave great opportunity for our son to run back and burn some excess enjoy off. My wife loved the pillows but I didn't.
The pool area was superb!!! The waterslide was great and the pool area was kept clean and tidy. There is a great Adults only area of the lagoon pool and also a little kiddies pool. Pool towels were also provided which was awesome!
We ate at the watercourt where they serve asian food. The food here was excellent and we enjoyed the meal here far more than at the Blu restaurant BUT they are expensive. Alcohol and food was cheaper out on the island than on the mainland. Watercourt was clean and tidy but very small as we were lucky to get a table. At the Blu restaurant, we had lunch and it was like being back home in outback Australia with the flies!!! One hand moving to keep the flies off your meal while trying to shove food in your mouth with the other hand before the flies took it away.. The other thing we noticed was the constant need for the waters\waitress staff to continually get rid of the indian minor birds.
Service was slow in the restaurants and compared to the island where we stay, the staff weren't as friendly. It was very random that you would receive a big BULA from the staff. Don't get me wrong, the staff were nice but not as happy as island staff.
Check in and out was great and we had no problems with our bill. Our only regret was that we didn't stay here for a few nights rather than just 1 night as it was simply to short. We would recommend staying here as a couple or with a family but the $$$ will add up rather fast.
Looking forward to coming back and staying a few more nights
