I first went to Colo-i-Suva back in 1999 when the huts had just been put in, and it was a pretty amazing place to while away the weekend - which we did a lot of!
it's a bit run down now, i wouldn't be having too many picnics in the old pagodas, or eating off the old tables, but the attraction is the rainforest, and the pools - and for this, it's a gem!
a couple of cautionary notes: don't leave valuables in the car, take additional precautions if you're going in a small group and let people know where you're going, think twice about personal safety if you're planning on going by yourself, and consider carefully if you're planning on taking your small kids - the tracks are long and can be very slippery, and the water areas are - rainforestie - so you'll spend most of your time making sure the kids are ok, and not enough time enjoying the incredible natural surrounds!
but, for a really great day away from Suva, grab some beers, grab some food, grab your swimmers, grab a 4WD, grab a couple of dollars for the entry fee ($1 per person), and make sure you get some decent 4WDing in before you head down to the pools for a bunch of swinging off high ropes into beautiful cool pools - well worth it, and if you can't be bothered taking your own sustenance, after your swim head to the Raintree Lodge which is almost opposite the entrance, and is a fantastic experience in itself.
