“Nice hotel. Crap beach.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

I'm sure you've seen those beautiful pictures of Fiji with the white sandy beaches.... well, if that is what you want, then do not stay here. Go to the outer islands. Most hotels in Fiji look beautiful and Sheraton Villas is no different. The rooms were small but nice, comfortable and the staff were friendly. The pool and bar areas are also beautiful - although very pricey.

I would not stay here again, not because of the hotel - that was the best part of the holiday. Next time, we'll definitely stay on the outer islands. We took a day trip to Castaway. Beautiful yes. White sandy beaches, yes. Note though it's about a 2 hour boat ride to get there. Unless you go on private charter.

If you stay anywhere on Denarau, catch the Bula bus to the Marina for a wider choice of restaurants.

We stayed at the villas as a "rest" stop after traveling to Hawaii, Australia and New Zealand, before we returned to Massachusetts. The villas were lovely, but even more lovely were the people who work there. All were friendly and helpful, from the front desk to the waitstaff and the housekeeping staff. Enjoyed the Flying Fish restaurant - delicious mahi mahi. Breakfast buffet at the neighboring Westin was very good and the waitstaff sang a farewell when they found out we were leaving that day. Touching!

Similar to my comments re Westin,I find the service and time difficulties a huge challenge
I had returned from the Yasawas early so I could do some work which meant I needed the Internet.
Unfortunately the studio I was given had poor Internet reception but I was not told this until the next morning.
For hours I was talking to the front desk asking what the problem was and what could be done.
I was still trying until 2 in the morning but with no success.
As a Platinum member of Starwood I was entitled to a late checkout but unfortunately the didn't program the room keys appropriately.
When I returned to the room from a swim after 11.00 am I found he room locked and I couldn't get in.
They promised somebody would be down immediately to let me in.
After 35 minutes of sitting on the floor outside the room, I eventually went to the desk to get a replacement key.
Given that I had made some 6 or 7 trips to the front desk re the internet, I was well and truly over the repeated walks to the desk and the lack of interest in any timely service.
The amazing thing s that the studio was actually very good but any thoughts of quality and relaxation were totally overtaken by the problems of timely service.

We stayed at the Sheraton Villas for 8 nights, at the beginning of Feb
The weather was absolutely horrendous, but the amazing resort and first-class service made the torrential rain seem like nothing.

The staff are always happy to help you, and there are plenty of them around.
The villa was incredible, we stayed in a 3 bedroom ocean view room, and it was perfect. Right on the beach, with panoramic views of the ocean and surrounding islands. It also had excellent access to the pools.
The room was serviced everyday, and it was very thoroughly cleaned by up to 3 people at a time. The breakfast buffet every morning was a great start to the day.

All together it was an amazing stay at a wonderful resort. Very highly recommended.

We stayed here 3 nights, admittedly the weather was awful and we were villa bound. The 2 bedroom villa was spacious which was good with 2 kids, especially when the weather meant we were stuck inside. The problem was with 3 TVs in the villa none of them worked 100% with the poor weather we offered the kids in-house movies, only to find that these did not work on any of the 3 TVs. There was no information about the resorts as this was to be found on the TV info channel - which also did not work in our room. The staff did try to fix the problem but we were told technicians were needed - this did not help our bored children. The pool was nice and we managed one swim between showers. There was not much to do when it rained, the kids played some board games with the staff- who where brilliant.
The main buffet restaurant was OK but nothing to get too excited about, plus the wet weather meant there were leaks everywhere. The cocktail bar was also only just OK and happy hour was very limited compared to the other happy hours we had experienced at other Fiji Resorts.
Overall we were disappointed, admittedly weather played a large part of this but the resort had no indoor options to keep adults and kids entertained.

Room Tip: 2 bedroom villa the best options for families
