Spent 1 night here last weekend.
Pros: For a man made lagoon, pool - it is quite impressive. Food at Fiji is delicious, but can be expensive. Free shuttle to and from the airport. Easy hassle free check in and check out- they have separate counters for this. Service is good, every staff was courteous and attentive. Complimentary knick knacks like candies, chicharon, etc.. Other activities like gym, billiards, etc.. (I didn't inquire if its for free, since it was packed with people when we visited).
Cons: Check in is at 3pm and activities such as wall climb, archery are only till 5pm. Breakfast, slippers and kayaking does not come in for free, for 175 USD per night, I was hoping it would be inclusive. Quite far from outside world, so if you want to go out and eat out elsewhere can be a hassle. I was expecting for toothpaste and tooth brush but doesn't have any (perhaps you need to ask, luckily I brought one). Helmet used in wall climb smells stinky ( they need to clean it). Noisy neighbors (random bad luck being placed with them).
Suggestion: Move the check in earlier or extend the free activities time frame. I was hoping you will have a water dispenser per building. Note: you have a complimentary water 1 liter if I am not mistaken and you can ask for refill.
