I learned this lesson the hard way. I read the warnings that Denaru Island is awful, but I naively thought, "its Fiji, how awful could it be?". In short, we checked in for our four night stay and checked out after only one night.
Don't get me wrong, the hotel is fine. Its an enormous western chain hotel. Probably a 3-3.5 star hotel by US/European standards. For me, its not at all what i flew 14 hours to find, but I accept that it may be some peoples' cup of tea. Our room was clean but smelled incredibly musty. To appreciate our "ocean view" you had to lean over the tiny balcony and look between two buildings. No what i was expecting. The complex itself reminds me more of enormous college dorm buildings or cheap apartment buildings. Pretty uninspired.
I feel like I went to a different beach than some of the reviewers on here. The water is dirty and unappealing. I didn't even consider getting in it, which says a lot for me as I love the ocean.
Perhaps we were just spoiled by our experiences on the beautiful outer islands of Fiji. In my opinion, they are more than worth the effort to get to - less crowded and exquisite beaches.
