We stayed her for 10 days with our 2 year old toddler. We stayed in a king suite, at the far end of the garden. The room was great, with a separate lounge area so when our little one went down for a sleep, we could still stay up in the room. We also checked out the family room while...

Good Morning Amy M Overall it certainly sounds like you had a great break. The Melanesian people are reserved by nature unlike the Polynesians of Fiji and can come across as shy and with a literacy rate that is below 70% at times communication can be a challenge and one that we continually work on.

As an older married couple, my wife and I found this to be an excellent resort in all aspects. The food was great whether it came from the 'In-Room Dining' menu, the Poolside Bar menu, the Buffett or the Al-a-Carte menu. Yes the prices were typical resort prices but not too high. Our room was a well appointed King Garden...
