We just got back from Plantation Island Resort. We've been to Fiji few times before and this by far was the worst resort where we stayed. There was a lot wrong with the accommodation: hot water in the tap was frequently yellow (the water in the resort is not safe to drink), the toilet was more stinky than a public...

Beautiful location with beach at the door step. The rooms really need a good revamp or at least a coat of paint. The bathroom wall didn't even go up to the ceiling so we could clearly hear each other when on the toilet. The safe in our room wasn't working but thankfully was promptly fixed and no problems after that....

Stayed for a week recently . Beautiful location. The resort is tired in parts but they are spending money doing it up. What they have done is lovely. The buffets are good value for money and a reasonable standard. During our stay we had buffet dinner a few nights, dinner at Anandas twice which was quite average. The Old Copra...

Idyllic location. Resort is not plush, would benefit from a revamp of facilities, and the restaurants are basic, but lots to do, and lots of fun to be had if you go on the understanding this is not a 5 star resort. For the cost of the holiday this exceeded expectations. Lots to keep kids and adults amused; great beach,...

We just got back from a 7 night stay in a 1 bedroom garden terrace. The room was ideal with two small children as we were very central to everything (close to the reception building) but still surrounded by beautiful gardens. The room was clean, spacious and had everything we needed. We used a cot which was old style but...
