The hotel is quite a way from Nadi (3hr drive) and Suva (1hr) - so expect to pay a bit more for airport transfer (approx $200FJD from Nadi Airport) but is right next door to the Jetski safari and probably one of the closest to the river rafting tour and the shark dive tour. It is also very close to Beqa Island. Aside from the backpackers and some holiday rental properties at Pacific Harbour, the next nearest resort is probably 30min away. The distance from the main towns also means that you get to expereince more of the authentic Fijian community spirit and hospitality. Fijians are just the friendliest people you'll ever meet. Be Warned - You will be Relaxed after a trip to Fiji.

It is quite a small boutique hotel that is undergoing some redevelopment to increase its size but we found it to be very relaxing and clean. Showing a bit of its age in places but over is clean and the people (staff and locals) are friendly. The bed is a little firm but otherwise not too bad. The level two beachside rooms have a balcony and would probably have been much better but at the price we paid would not have expected anything more. It was certainly good value for money - bearing in mind breakfast is included (great spread), but you have to pay for just about everything else (including water and milk for the tea and coffee in the room).

Hotel is right on the beach and there is a nice pool with a swim up bar. They also provide enough free/cheap activities to keep you occupied. Don't expect white sandy beaches and torquise blue water though as you would have to go to one of the islands to get that. I suspect very few if any of the beaches on the mainl land would have white sandy beaches as there are a lot of mangroves and fresh water from the moutains pumping into sea on the mainland.

We did a jetski safari around Beqa had a chance to snorkel which was just fantasic. Water so clear you could see for miles. Went fishing - saw a massive pod of dolphins swimming around our boat that made it all worthwhile. The snorkelling was also great. The fishing itself is pretty average. In future would probbably charter the boat to take us snorkelling and forget about the fishing.

The resort is part of a really nice hotel, which is about 5 min away. Very nice scenic course on the edge of a rainforest. It is just stunning. Definitely need to get the hire cart though as certain parts of the course was a bit wet after the rain. It does rain a bit more on the south coast of Viti Levu i think.

The resort is also only short stroll to the Art Centre where there are other eateries, some souvenir shops and a small supermarket for cheaper beer, water and snacks. EAteries are also good value with good selection of food.

Food at the resort, although more expensive then other places in the locality is actually very affordable by Aust standards. Quality is also very good.

Room Tip: Consider arriving in the morning to take advantage of the scenic drive to the hotel. Consider the Coral Sun coach for your transfer to and from Nadi, Nadi Airport or Suva if travelling alone or in pairs (cost us only $20FJD ea to go to Nadi as opposed to being anywhere between $150 and $220). The stop is right out the front entrance of resort with about 100m walk to reception. You have to book ahead online, by phone or through Rosie's Tour desks.

Recently stayed for 5 nights at the Pearl and had a lovely time. We had a Getaway voucher which was extremely good value and included Lovo night dinner, transfers to and from Nadi Airport, kayaking, complimentary 30 minute massage, village tour, golf etc. The staff were friendly, helpful and not pretentious, service was great in the bistro and Mantarae restaurant and the Pearl Spa ladies were very experienced masseuses - the Spa itself was very clean and serene and a pure delight. Breakfast buffet was ample althought the menu didn't change - the omelette chef was superb! The location of the Pearl is fabulous if you want to experience a nice quiet tropical surrounding. Its a little isolated being 45minutes to Suva, 2.5hours to Nadi but there is a great cultural/shopping centre across the road which is only about a 5 minute walk, post office, dvd shop, cafes, souvenirs etc. Express bus to Suva was FJD5.70 and open buses were cheaper. We booked the 1/2 day fishing tour with Freedive (office located near the pool) and can't say enough good things about the operator, he and his crew's professionalism and knowledge of the waters and reefs around the area and Beqa Island were top class - and to top it off we caught tuna - the cakes and snacks on board were divine (home-made). The only negative comment I would make about the Pearl is that our room could have been a little bit cleaner, when we arrived there was a tissue on the floor in the bathroom, big soapy smudge on the shower glass screen and on top of the fridge bench an Aussie had left $1, which would've been found if the cleaners had taken a closer look - despite these small oversights, the room wasn't dirty. The t.v. had its moments (could be due to the windy conditions) but you don't go all the way to Fiji to watch t.v. Would we stay here again - definitely!

Room Tip: We had room 115 Ocean view on the ground floor, if you are a light sleeper it can be a little bit noisey as its close to the stairs, bistro and the staff service area.

The Pearl exceeded expectations for the price and was a surprise star in our visit to Fiji. Despite arriving at 8am the staff at check-in found us a room straight away and were sympathetic to our jetlag - no waiting around till 2pm check-in!
The location is fantastic although it was windy most of the time we visited - I was told this is the case year round as the hotel is exposed to the weather. It's very laid back and quite a small resort, which was welcoming as we'd come to know the staff by name.
Dinner was amazing and catered to many different tastes. Authentic Fijian curry, pizzas, tropical dishes etc.. It was much better than breakfast which tended to lack some freshness at times but was still good.
Rooms were above average, but to be honest you're in Fiji and here to experience more than just the furniture and bedroom view.
Highly recommend The Pearl - it's not 5 star but doesn't promise to be. The food and drinks are cheap enough and I never felt ripped off after staying almost a week (more than I can say for a lot of other name resorts in Fiji).

We stayed at the Pearl May 11-16, 2013 and we were very pleased. The staff is just wonderful, especially at the front desk. After arriving from the states at 5 in the morning and a two hour plus drive from the airport to the hotel the staff was so welcoming and got us into a room so quickly so we could get some rest from our long journey. The rooms were clean and well appointed. The lobby area is open air and very impressive. The resort just gave us a feeling of being cozy.
The beach on the property is not what you think of in Fiji but we knew that going to the property but the pool makes up for it. Our purpose of staying at The Pearl was so my husband could shark dive with Beqa Diving and the hotel was so helpful in arranging all of his diving. Loved the pizza at the restaurant, too. If i had to complain about one thing it would be that the service is slightly slow in the dining areas but could be that we were on Fiji time where life isn't as fast paced as it is in the states. We would definitely return without a doubt.

Room Tip: With the resort being so affordable book an oceanview. It is well worth it.

Pacific Harbour is about an hour's drive from the bustle of Suva. but the drive past native villages is interesting and well worth the journey.
Arriving at The Pearl is moving into a peaceful paradise. The staff are friendly and always willing to assist and advise guests. The setting is idyllic - beautiful sandy beaches and swaying palm trees. There is a lovely pool, complete with bar (don't miss happy hour) and plenty of lounges to relax on. The resort grounds are well set out and afford plenty of shady areas.
The restaurant food was varied and well presented; the staff were always on hand to provide for your every need.
