January or April? First timers

Hi all. I am planning our first trip to Fiji (for 5 nights) and would welcome suggestions both for where to stay and when to go. We are a couple with 6-year old child.

Our options so far are to go in January school holidays or April holidays (Around April 11). Any suggestions here?

Locations I've looked into so far are Outrigger on the Lagoon Resort and Navini Resort. I'm preferring the look of Navini thus far, although it is double the price (we'd pay Outrigger about $1000 for a room for 5 nights; whereas Navini is about $2600 for the bure/meals/excursions/transfers for the 5 days. Is the Navini worth the extra?

Any other suggestions are certainly welcome. We like quiet and relaxing more than loud and boisterous; but still like to have the option of doing things too.

January is cyclone season in Fiji the weather will be hot and humid with a good chance of rain and maybe even a cyclone April is cooler (still warm) and dryer. If you want the beaches that you see in all the post cards than you have to go to one of the islands if it’s a good resort with a reasonable beach than the resorts on the coral coast are fine the Outrigger, Navity,Warwick and Hideaway are all very good resorts and are kid friendly and have kids clubs but you may have to pay more during school holidays so missing a week of school may not be such a bad thing for a 6year old

Check web sites like myfiji and travelonline for good deals last month we picked up a 7 night all inclusive (air ,transfers,meals and drinks) at the Hideaway for next March with myfij only $1490pp
