A trip to Fiji for most is relaxation and doing nothing, but we find that boring, so we split our holiday into 2 locations, Outrigger and Malolo island. We chose outrigger for its location, close to Sigatoka for the jet boat river safari, as well as reasonably close to river rafting at the Upper Navua River. We knew from talking to people we were not going to get the pristine beaches one gets on the small islands at the Outrigger, which is why we also did the Malolo stint. I strongly recommend that if you go to Fiji for the beautiful beaches do not stay solely at Outrigger.
So we went for the cheapest room (plantation I think), which was still very nice - probably as nice as any others, just a bit further away from the ocean. I think we ate at all the restaurants except the buffet - way too many kids there, and enjoyed every meal, and always with great friendly service, especially at the finer dining restaurant. If you want to dine there, its no kids, and there is a dress code (although they didn't enforce it). However I recommend you make the effort as you will find the service is much better, and it was very affordable (about $200 Fiji for 2 people no wine).
I saw a comment about options for breakfast being limited, and I agree - especially if you have an activity thats starts early as the breakfast did not open until 6.30. The only other option is that there is a coffee shop next to reception which sells some snacks and provides free internet with a purchase, which can be useful while you wait for a pickup.
I would recommend this location for people looking for a family resort and for people wanting to stay around the Coral Coast area.
The hotel is about 10 mins by cab to Sigatoka, which is $12 Fiji one way in a taxi. I think they also had some sort of a bus but did not use.
