This was our fourth family holiday to Fiji. Negatives: Do not stay here if you are a returning visitor to Fiji. That fantastic friendly Fijian service you got on your last trip is no where to be found at Plantation Island Resort! The staff are tired and over it. The guests have nick named the water sports attendant 'Grumpy Mike'...

It was our first time to this Island. It is beautiful; we were in awe when we first arrived - the water is clear and you could clearly see the little fish swimming past you! We did not want to leave the beach! Stayed in a studio garden bure - it was renovated so that was nice. POSITIVES: The beach...

Bula We appreciate the review, and are glad you had a good holiday, enjoyed the Island and found so many positives. The resort itself is nearly fifty years old and due for some major redevlopmen works, commencing we hope mid year this year. These would eventually include the Kids Club and Dining areas.

The location is incredible. We went for our honeymoon and had a blast. The water is SO warm and clear. Just a short ferry from the main island so it was convenient to get to that sort of beauty. We stayed 5 days and that seemed like the perfect amount of time. It was a very fun trip. However...... We've...

In brief, unless you get a really good price to stay at Plantation Island Resort, I'd recommend you don't. The whole resort (rooms, restaurants, communal areas, toilets etc) needs some serious maintenance. Everything feels grubby, grimy and run down. It seems like the owners have absolutely no interest in the place and, as a result, neither do the staff. ROOMS:...

The arrival at the island was perfect. We pulled into a quiet palm tree lined bay. As you step on the wharf you see hundreds of brightly coloured tropical fish swimming below you. The ideal tropical paradise. Then you get to the end of the wharf and everything changes. We were led past some very low looking burees set in...
