I have never had as positive of an experience at a hotel as I did at Paradise Cove. My wife and I spent four nights here in August '14 as part of a honeymoon trip to Fiji. Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted by the hotel staff. Every staff member takes the time to learn your name, and remember it throughout your stay. We had a suitcase that never made it on our flight from L.A., and the hotel staff took the lead and contacted the airport to make sure that it would arrive the next day (no easy task with all of the land and sea connections between the airport and the island). Noa was probably our favorite from the P.C. staff. Tim was great as well.
We were pleasantly surprised to find that the resort offers unlimited free wifi for all guests. Given the islands remote location, this was an unexpected luxury.
We stayed in one of the bungalows, who's interior was nice but nothing overly luxurious. The highlight of the room is probably the outdoor shower. Air conditioning is provided and works well, although we barely needed it during our stay (got down to 65 F at night). We didn't know what to expect from the food, as it was a pre-fix meal plan - but the quality of the food far exceeded our expectations. The menu rotated every other day, and I would say it was the best food we ate throughout our entire trip (and we ate at some very expensive restaurants after leaving). Given the difficulty in getting supplies to the island, I was very impressed with the freshness of the ingredients. Alcohol was very reasonably priced IMO.
The resort offers a wide range of activities every day, and compared to other resorts we stayed at, were very cheap. The Manta Ray snorkeling trip is a must. We received a complimentary couples massage right on the beach. They offer a private picnic lunch on a remote island which was a great day.
Jodi and Elvis in the PADI dive shop are great as well. Both are very knowledgeable. There are some great dive spots very close by, and the pricing is much cheaper than I found in the Coral Coast.
Overall, while the food, beach, and facilities are wonderful, what really makes Paradise Cove special are the people. While Fijians might be known for being some of the nicest, the ones who work at Paradise Cove are on another level. I highly recommend P.C., and look forward to returning!
