We stayed at the Radisson for 5 nights from 20th oct till the 25th in suite 226 which over looked the ornamental waterfall and the bar. Our first trip to Fiji and we were very impressed with the hotel. I had done some; ok lots of reading about this hotel before we left so I knew that the restaurant food was going to be bland and it was! I knew it was going to be full of stressed out parents running around after their children and it was but we couldn’t really find any fault in the place. There was mention of the beach and how uninviting it was; well I have seen worst beaches in New Zealand so it didn’t stop me from going in. The service at the Radisson was great we never had to wait long if we needed anything from housekeeping, and our suite was always immaculately made up. Breakfast was expensive at $30 a head for adults we were lucky to have that added into our package so I’d agree with what some others have said about stocking up in nadi on supplies like bread milk cereal etc… The pools at the Radisson were great especially the adults only one, oh and the one with the bar Our second night there and after a few vodka’s we went and explored the kids pool as it has a slide ok so the pool was closed at 8.30pm!!!! There wasn’t a single soul around so we had a bit of fun; I can see why the kids love it. We would defiantly stay there again, although it’s not really a place for couples as your pretty much overrun with families and kids but if you’re taking the kiddlets then The Radisson is for you
The Bula bus is great and we managed to get around to other resorts on our way to the Denarau mariner. This place is a tourist hub and as you would expect rather expensive in every aspect from food to souvenirs although that didn’t stop us from buying things we could get back home for half the price, we were on holiday haha. We had one meal at Amalfi an a Italian restaurant in Port Denarau, it was nice I enjoyed it and I didn’t have to ask for extra salt so that’s a good thing. Yees superret is really really expensive I almost choked when I saw the price of a bottle of vodka, it was close to the $100 mark, We stopped off in Nadi on our way in and grabbed our alcohol. Some have said get your duty free alcohol, Id agree with that too. So if your on a budget get supplies from Nadi if not spend and worry about the credit card payments later.
We did two tours while in Fiji you can book at the tourist desk at the front entrance of the Radisson for pretty much anything anywhere in Fiji Our first tour was on the Seapray which is run by South sea cruises, omg it was fantastic we ended up on the island that they made a movie on “Castaway” with Tom Hanks. I won’t go into anymore except check out their website before you go, they have loads of different cruises to suit and this one was just awesome for us. The second one was a cave hike in Sigatoka. Again just awesome. Adventures in paradise are the company that run the tour, check it out if you’re into hiking and getting away from the touristy stuff and doing off the beaten track things. It was loads of fun.
The only thing that I was totally shocked and horrified with Fiji was the amount of rude obnoxious moaning people from across the ditch that were everywhere, just shameful!
