Loved Plantation, yes things may be a little run down and in need of repair and a spruce up, though staff are friendly and are proud and are trying to do their best with what they are provided from the property owners. Awesome for kids, beautiful beaches and location, food is o.k., accommodation can do with a remodel though rooms...

This resort feels more like a kids' summer camp than a resort. We stayed in a beachfront room for $750 per night which was very overpriced, considering next door's Musket Coves' beachfront rooms are less expensive and the resort is far more civilized. We did not purchase meal plans (thankfully) as we ate here only once and were sick the...

We stayed for 4 nights with 2 adults and three children. The location is great, beautiful beach, tropical waters. Also the bures themselves are good, spacious, have aircon and are quite nice. However the resort itself left a LOT to be desired. It looks better in photos and it is very rundown (watch for splinters around the pools on the...

I travelled with my 6 year old son and we had an excellent time. The resort is geared towards families and children. We found the other guests friendly which meant all the children soon found holiday buddies to hang around with. The kids club is awesome. Very safe swimming in the calm, crystal clear waters, plentiful fish life, snorkelling was...

Forget star ratings etc. if you are in need of a holiday that will completely d stress you this is the place. No tv, no radio, no timekeeping, this is bliss.

My family of five adults was very disappointed in our stay during Christmas week..having said that, I can see why families with young children, or perhaps elderly parents, might really enjoy it. (Flat walkways well maintained, shallow, nearly wave-less ocean bay and three swimming pools, and a kids' club that looked like fun.) The bures/rooms were large, with a large...

The resort I very TIRED. Room was clean an big, but we didn't feel at home here like we did with the era to Fiji. Surfing was killer! But if you are gonna stay Malolo Lailai stay at Musket Cove... It is where we ended up eating all our meals and spending our entire time.

We really enjoyed the resort and the activities. The staff are friendly. Don't expect activities to start on time "Fiji time". Restaurant food was expensive and was not to our expectation. Since we were a family of 5, we shopped at the local supermarket and left eating at the restaurant to minimum. We had the best time at this resort.
