It was fine except for the cell service is not good at that location and their wifi was not very good. The staff were great though.

Expectations managed, good stay

My expectations were managed, having read other reviews. I booked the Deluxe Seaside #1 and the air conditioning didn’t work and I didn’t have hot water. Everything is as dated and worn as other reviewers noted. On the plus side, the staff were friendly and the drinks were tropical and we had a pretty great stay. Good launch point for the Upper Navua River trip.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Great location, quiet and peaceful but food very expensive for mediocre choice and quality. We had $70 taken from our room while at dinner in sight of the room. Complaint to management resulted in no follow up

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

Beautiful location, very authentically Fijian. Accommodation clean and comfortable, but a little tatty around the edges. Prefect for relaxing and unwinding. Food good quality but limited choice - not a problem for us though. A little remote if looking to explore local area.
