Staff was super friendly and excellent with my younger son. No need to watch him entirely. Great location if you're just doing what we did and stopping due to a flight stop over anyways. Just stayed two nights. If I was deliberately going to Fiji, I would want to stay at a place with a nicer beach. Denarau is a man made island, (although beautifully done; reclaimed swamp land), so the ocean looks muddy. While the main beds in the room were comfortable and had lots of pillows, the sofa bed was the most uncomfortable sofa bed I have ever slept on!
The resort was glorious -- beautiful well-maintained grounds, gorgeous newly remodeled room, lovely pools and beach, good food, and the most friendly, helpful staff you can imagine. Be prepared for lots of families, mainly from Australia and New Zealand, but I found no intrusion since their kids are generally well behaved! Use of the adjoining Weston resort is a plus. A really nice two day interlude for me after a long diving trip.
There are several hotels to choose from in Denarau, and although I haven't stayed at all of them, I've had a chance to tour, stay at or eat at a few, and from that I can say the Sheraton is one of the best. The atrium and entrance are lovely and well lit, the staff helpful, and the restaurants are fabulous. Our room was lovely and opened straight to the beach. I would definitely come back. Also, the adults only pool and quiet area are divine for a break from the kiddies!
fabulous. Loved every minute of my time at the sheraton. can't wait until I return next year.
A few problems with service, air conditioner not working as well as should have in room, but overall would recommend. Food was very expensive. Quality in buffet okay. Restaurants excellent. Staff friendly
The most glorious place on earth, I can hear for the first time .. see for the first time..., I will come back every year! It really helped me with a school project.
The proximity of the beach and pool areas. The surroundings were beautiful and especially the Fiji people who work there - they were wonderful. They were friendly, respectful and very unassuming. I didn't like all the taxes we paid on our bill when we were leaving! It was actually a surprise, because I thought it was all included in the price.
Nice rooms and good location The front desk staff are poorly informed and need a good deal of coaching in the way that Booking.com works!
We were over awed by the luxury and presentation of the hotel. the pool was amazing as were all the facilities. The beach was disappointing with grey soil the main ingredient of the sand. Consequently the water is murky. I would have thought the resorts would have put a lot more into their beaches.
the staff and their attitute to their guest was amazing - they could not do enough for us there was nothing that we did not like at the resort
Comfortable room, great bed, great hotel location right on the water, huge pool, plenty of activities on site a few areas of resort need updating - pool tile looks a little tired, etc. people saving lounge chairs by pool means there aren't enough seats and despite a hotel sign saying towel left on chairs would be removed after 30 minutes, when we asked, the person responsible wasn't willing to help. Not a major deal - we ended finding chairs on the beach, but a annoyance they are obviously used to dealing with.
We spent only a night there on route to the airport - and wished that we had booked for the whole 2 weeks. It was a perfect closure to our stay in Fiji. The lovo night was particularly spectacular. Next time we will certainly arrange a longer stay at the Sofitel Fiji.
Wonderful experience with wonderful staff at the resort! Food was amazing and the weather was great.
We enjoy the time spent in this luxury hotel with a beatiful swimming pool, spa and other facilities for relax. Very nice the garden.
Position great as a stop over to go to holiday destination. They ran out of pool towels for quite a long time. Also during breakfast there was no glasses for fruit juice or coffee cups.
AC wouldn't go 24 C and safe did not work and repair efforts at both were futile.
Good location, excellent facilities, friendly, attentive and efficient staff Pool size somewaht limited in view of number of guests. Might be less crowded if beach also in use (stayed during poor weather)
Still smells brand new after 4 years and absolutely wonderful staff - so friendly and helpful. I think the restaurants were excellent with very good wine choice by glass and bottle; specifically the fine diner was outstanding with wines to match.
I chose this hotel based on its low rate and proximity to Nadi airport, and as such, I wasn't expecting much.However, I was more than pleasantly surprised when I was shown to my bure which was large, comfortable and charming. The room was cleaned every day. All the staff are a joy and the place is run very efficiently. I ate at the restaurant every night and the food was delicious. My aim was to have a relaxing holiday and I definitely achieved this in lovely surroundings. It's a place where you can do as much as you want or as little as you want - I chose the latter and it was perfect. It's only a 15 minute drive from Nadi airport, so it's ideal if you've got a short stopover in Fiji. The beach/sea is disappointing, but there is always the swimming pool! It rained for most of the time I was there, so going to the beach wasn't an issue.
The room was ok and clean. The staf is very bad, the location of the resort is very very bad, away from anything and in front of a horrible beach dirty with brown water.And they charge you 50 cents a minute for using internet (only one computer).
the staff was so very, very nice. the bar was fun and the food was good. no television (though we were rarely in the room), no roof on the bathroom so not as much privacy as an American would like.
Location Nothing is included and the optional are a little expensive
The rooms were lovely The reservation desk was a shambles and had no knowledge of our booking and speaking to others this was common. The food was expensive for the area and rather poor.
Lovely setting of bungalows, chairs and hammocks along the beach. Staff very helpful and pleasant. The air conditioning in our small room could not cool it below 80 degrees, even when we had it running for 3 days straight. Beach is covered in trash: plastic, tires, glass. There was so much broken glass that we had to wear sandals into the water.
location, food, staff - superb orange juice was tasteless (with water?) on the breakfast, two-storied bed (expected one big bed)
it was close to the airport, everyone was helpful and frendly. the food was great. that you could have a beer at the bar or lunch at the dinning room and keep a eye on the kids in the pool.
The staff were so friendly, helpful and courteous! the location was paradise!! Being collected from the airport was a lovely extra! we loved our stay at Smugglers cove!!
Staffs were helpful, always there when I need to ask about any things; cozy restaurant, great location by the beach front, great information from tourist desk. Breakfast is not satisfiying, juice was not concentrated, price of food from restaurant is quite expensive, not many vegetarian selection, room was smelled awkful because of the bedcover.
The staff is very nice. The facility lacked Any ambience or character. The website says airport shuttle - yet when we arrived we were informed theshuttle only offers pick up service.
Despite the party atmosphere the room we stayed in was quiet. The staff was also friendly and helpful. The free island dance performance is worth watching. The beds were very uncomfortable, there were bugs in the bathroom, the surrounding beach area wasnt very nice at all. Not romantic, good for one night stay for traveling.
It is what it is. I was in Nadi on a 15-hour layover between Melbourne & LA, so I just wanted access to a beach, so under $20US for a bed & locker in a dorm room was totally worth it for beachfront access. The rod & showers were dirty, and the Pirate Dorm smelled so awful (like a monster mix of body odor, feet, and fish), that I couldn't nap in there as planned. And I'd advise wearing flip flops in the showers to avoid mold or fungus. BUT the beach is awesome, the staff is friendly, the restaurant is surprisingly excellent, I got a fantastic massage at the spa, and they have all sorts of activities available. No idea what the more expensive rooms are like, I'm sure much better than the dorms. But it was definitely worth the $20 to be right on their beautiful beach for the day.
