I've searched countless hours through these forums and other blogs and I can't make up my mind. We are traveling from LAX to Brisbane (2 weeks) and ultimately for 6 nights in Fiji. We have three toddlers, ages 4 and 2 (twins). We will be traveling to Fiji December 2nd to the 8th.
We are trying to decide between the Sheraton Villas, Radisson Blu, Outrigger Resort or Octopus Resort. We understand there are different dynamics for each and are not afraid for a little additional travel to get to a resort if needed. We are not budget travelers but value conscious. We are looking for exceptional kid facilities as well as a great kids club. We would like to hang around the pool and also have the option for great snorkeling, swimming in the ocean, etc.
The more research I do, the more I find the Radisson Blu may be our best bet for the kids and take a few day trips to experience the great waters of Fiji. What would you suggest? Really, our biggest concern with the Denarau area is the beach and which is better (Sheraton vs Radisson). The concern we have with going to the North is if the outrigger or similar resort has a good kids club, facilities, etc. We also have to keep in mind we need a room large enough for all 5. Lastly, booking an island resort sounds like about everything we need except for what about food? I think the kids clubs would be fine, but would it be too small or not enough activities to keep the toddlers entertained the entire time. Another item to consider is our flight coming home leaves at 9pm. So we are debating whether to travel our entire day from island resort to airport. We are even open to splitting up the itinerary to get the best of both worlds.
