Our family of 5 (2 adults & 3 kids aged 9,5 and 2) stayed for 5 nights. We had a 1 bedroom room that was huge. It was simply furnished but the bathroom was modern and heaps of towels were provided everyday. My brother and his family stayed in a pool view room which was more dated than our room...

The set up for surf trips is very disorganised, I had to speak to about 7 staff over a day to find out the surf charter company wasn't actually there for another 3 days. Fijisurfco.com was great and offered to take 5 of us on a trip but we managed to find a local guy. The boards they have are...

Just a very brief review: Room - great. We had a Studio Bure which had yet to be renovated but still quite nice. Happy with the room. Activities - great. Expect for Volleyball on the beach which did not take place for 3 days as apparently they had lost the ball. I would've thought there was more than one Volleyball...

Bula One problem with TripAdvisor is that reviews are anonymous, if you let me know who you are I can certainly look into your Pre-Authorization refund question. My email address is gm@plantationisland.com . What I can say though is that they expire and are released automatically by the Banks. We are delighted that all had a good say, and look...

The sky was a bit overcast but that didn't influence the pleasure of visiting this resort. An enjoyable boat ride across to the island from Port Denarau. Excellent facilities, picturesque setting, scrumptious smorgasbord luncheon. Hours of snorkelling, relaxing and just taking in the vistas. Most enjoyable.

We took our two kids (4 & 5) to plantation island for a 5 night stay. We skipped the layover at the gateway hotel on the mainland as we wanted to get straight to the island and I would highly recommend doing that if you can. The gateway hotel is right by the airport and pretty dull so we were...

To be honest I wasn't going to leave a review of our stay on PIR until I found out friends of ours had booked a holiday to the island later this year, I didn't want to put a damper on their holiday so thought I would refer them to trip advisor to get an idea of what they were in...
