I stayed with my wife for 6 nights and we had a great time, even though the weather conspired against us and was miserable for 4 of the days we were there.
Our room, a 1 bedroom classic suite, was very nice - modern, clean and with great facilities. We liked the location of the room also - although the 'classic' rooms are located away from the pools and beach, and therefore less expensive, they are also located away from the noise and therefore quieter.
The restaurants are all very good, particularly the asian restaurant in the main lobby area (sorry can't remember the name!). However, we found the prices to be excessive after conversion from FJD back to NZD and ended up heading away from the hotel to eat on some nights.
There is a great selection of restaurants at Port Denarau Marina, offering good variety of food styles at generally better pricing. Avoid the Hard Rock Cafe at all costs though - very poor and overpriced - see my separate review for more info.
The pools at the hotel are good also, we loved the privacy and seclusion of the adults only pool and didn't find the close location of the family pool to be a hassle at all. We did find it a little frustrating that the swim up bar was located in the family pool and not the adult pool, but that wasn't a major problem.
Service was generally good - we tipped directly for good service even though the hotel suggest you shouldn't.
The only negatives to our trip were that there is very little to do if the weather is poor - not the fault of the hotel but worth bearing in mind, the expensive food and drinks and the fact that there was no real effort or activities designed to get guests talking to each other or meeting, etc. we would have appreciated some sort of event or activity that would have allowed us to get together with fellow guests.
Overall a great trip and we would consider visiting again.
