It may be the Hilton but it does run on Fiji time. So don't expect anything to happen in a hurry. Rooms are excellent. Beach is a bit average but perfect if you are just looking to flop under a palm tree and read. The sea is perfectly swimable but is not the beautiful blue waters you may be expecting.

The grounds are beautiful and the beach is accessible. Because the property is small, it isn’t a long walk to the beach or pool.

What a treat! The kids loved the pool, we loved the beachfront bure. The food was delicious. Kids get their kids meal for free if adults order a meal as well. The welcome cookies where delicious. The arrival via a short boat ride is super nice. The bure is spacious and clean. We could't find anything to complain.

Loved the beach front accommodation, our bure was almost like having your own holiday house. Don't go here if you want efficient, fast service.

The property was OK, the service was friendly but incompetent. The food and food service was poor. It poses as a resort holiday, with a range of activities and services available on site. It needs to be because it is relatively isolated. But we had a terrible experience. Our reservation was confirmed by Wotif but there was no record at the hotel, so after a shambolic booking in, we were given a sub standard room, not what we booked. But the worst thing was the food service. Prices were fairly high, but the quality was poor. Our first night we waited an hour over one glass of water (no refills offered), during which time we discovered maggots in our water glass. We were then brought stale rolls and waited another fifteen minutes for our meals, and my prawn nicoise salad was inedible. Brown lettuce, absolutely flavourless prawns and olives, old potatoes. Dreadful. We were not made to pay for the meal after complaining. But there's more! Two nights later we had an even longer, 2 hours wait for your meal at the outside Tavu restaurant. Well, the kids meals arrived after an hour, but our seafood platter was another hour. We didn't pay for that meal either. But the whole experience totally ruined the holiday. On multiple times I made requests of service staff who wandered off without explanation. I was offered coffee or tea once in five days of breakfasts. Staff were friendly but that just gets annoying when you have the justified expectation that they won't deliver.

Great resort with a lovely pool area. The staff were lovey. Service at the restaurant was often very slow with food taking an hour or more to arrive. The beach area and water around there resort is not as nice as we had hoped. The water is often a brown colour and not clear at all. There is only one area of sand the rest is rock.
