We were on our honeymoon,1st time to fiji,after staying 6 nights at the warwick on the mainland we went to malolo island for 2 nights to compare it to the mainland.we loved it,it was different to the mainland i felt less culture but heaps more water sports.we arrived on the afternoon boat,on the jetty we were greeted by singers and guitar players which was wonderful then taken for a drink and a greeting.we had a deluxe oceanview bure with a king size bed wonderful double shower and the best no phone tv radio etc,you are about 10 steps away from the ocean wonderful warm clear water,were swimming and snorkeling at 7.30am pure bliss.the pool is a good set up one for kids one for adults the only thing wrong with it i think is it's a bit small and not enough deckchairs around it,we were on a meal plan and i would have to say we both thought the food was amazing top qaulity,breakfast was buffet with everything you could imagine fresh fruit cereal pancakes eggs cooked by the chef to your liking,lunch we had at the beach bar lovely pizzas salads etc,dinner was order from the menu seafood pasta salads etc sweets were lovely stick date pudding cheesecake etc,we were given a free couples full body massage for just getting married it was wonderful it went for 1 hour looking into the rainforest highly recommend it for anyone,we went to honeymoon island for 1 hour snorkelling it was fantastic wonderful colorful coral and fish,the staff were so lovely and friendly BULA everywhere you go,the bure's were very clean good airconditioning and fans,the crab race night was very funny and lots of fun,i could go on forever but i will control myself,there has been a few negative reviews lately which is sad to see we have been back 2 weeks and talk often about going back,my advice to you all is go to malolo we loved the island the weather which by the way was 32c lovely blue sunny skys with mild nights.We loved it.

My partner and Ii decided to get married on malolo and we did an extreme amount of research before deciding. Resorts can only hope to satisfy most of their guests and if you go to fiji expecting western service you will be disappointed. If you want the best fiji can offer but still experience fiji, and not a western hotel, you will be pleased.

We actually spent our first week in fiji on a backpacking bus tour to immerse ourselves in the country and culture. Once you compare the the quality of malolo to the other parts of fiji, you feel you get your monies worth. You also start to understand that you can not bypass 'fiji - time' - everything takes more time, sometimes and extreme amount of time. Keep reminding people of your needs but don't let it consume you.

Malolo got our general stay perfect but due to the culture and language barrier our wedding was not as planned. But we were in fiji and if you accept the culture and the people for the relaxed style the have you will have a blast. The videographer was disappointing - do your own. Doing a walk through before, with the wedding advisor on the island, would be highly recommended - we didn't. In australia reception for a wedding means drinks and dinner - in fiji it just means drinks.

I will never experience food at a wedding as good as we had. Christian did a wonderful job. Don't expect too much privacy it is a small resort. We continued to enjoy the normal evenings entertainment with everyone else, winning the crab race and many excited onlookers to our wedding and reception. Don't forget to enjoy the massage and treatments.

I have travelled all over the world and everyone can have a bad day/stay. Be positive and friendly and you will go home knowing you have friends in fiji

Our day was extra special and we plan to return for our 1st anniversary

We stayed for 6 nights in June. The year before we stayed on the Coral Coast and wanted to experience the real Fiji. There was a vast difference in the quality of the resorts between the Coral Coast and Malolo. The rooms felt tired but after a few days, with the mess from the kids, it was overlooked! There is also no radio, TV, Clock or telephone in the room which took a bit of getting used to with no "entertainment" for the kids when they got tired from running around. The food was okay. The Beachfront Bar was not serving food which meant our choice was limited. I have emailed Malolo again before our trip back there in August this year to make sure "routine maintenance" was not being carried out again. The people were not as friendly as at the Outrigger. Also, pay the babysitter their $5 per hour and NO MORE. At home we round it up, and we made the mistake of doing the same on the first night. Each night our lady came to ask us if we needed her (even forsaking her own days off to look after our kids) but she started expecting the higher rate of money and when we realised it and started paying according to the clock, she got a bit peeved. When I read mixed reviews I wonder: Why are you there? Do you want to be harrassed by the Fijian people, living with the Luxuries of home? We go to relax. We go to remind ourselves that we work too hard and need to slow down and smell the roses. If you want all the mod-cons don't go to Fiji.

My mother and I both got food poisoning whilst on Malolo Island. Our suffering was exacerbated by two things 1) I was breastfeeding a 7 month old baby, the food poisioning caused my milk to dry up and the resort had no formula on hand 2) the resort had no medical help.

My harrassed husband asked for help and was told a boat could be sent to nearby plantation island where there was a nurse. However, we would have to pay for the boat. My husband said yes, send the boat immediately. Two hours later it still hadn't gone. When my husband went back to ask why, the resort staff told him they thought he wasn't prepared to pay for the boat - so they hadn't sent it.

After lots of angry words from my husband the boat was sent. However it didn't arrive back with a nurse - only a little packet of (unmarked) blue pills. We didn't know what they were, and neither did the resort staff, but we were so desperate we took them. Bad move. They turned out to be heavy sedatives. Now I was vomiting and suffering with diahorrea and unable to move to the bathroom without falling because of the sedatives. My mother, who is in her 60's was so, so sick. It was truly awful - and quite scary because we were completely abandoned. The resort manager didn't want to know, and no-one came to our bure to see how we were at any stage.

My mother and I were ill for 36 hours, my baby went hungry...we have never been so glad to leave a place and we will never go back. All up, the accommodation and airfares cost $5000.

We stayed five nights at the Malolo Island Resort on the way to Australia. It is indeed very beautiful, as most tropical islands are. It is however, very small and when we were there, the only place on the island, although another resort is being built. Consequenty, as has been mentioned on this site before, there is no option but to eat and drink 'at home'. Most of the staff are delightful, gentle and smiling. However, they are very laid back about everything, and service is very very slow. We were put into De Luxe bure No. 3 near the jetty beach bar and the rubbish tip. Wheely bins were trundled past all the time. This is a noisy location at the best of times, but within hours of arriving, a family with two very loud teenage boys were moved in next door. They lay in the hammocks shouting, and what with the bar and jetty noise, did not combine to give that 'tropical island away from it all' ambience!

We asked at Reception to be moved to a quieter location, which was greeted with stony faces, but they did move us to the far end of the resort, which is definitely the better area to be if you want a quiet, romantic holiday or honeymoon. This said, we think this resort should either cater for families or couples, whether honeymooning or not. The childrens pool is immediately below the very nice adults only pool, so there is constant screaming and noise. The restaurants overlook the pools, so a peaceful lunch is not possible. Even in the evening, many children were running around the restaurant unsupervised, poking fingers into the buffet food and generally behaving as small children do when selfish adults are their parents. We felt sorry for the young honeymooning couples, who had obviously been attracted to the idea of a romantic isolated Fijian island. The food is of a very poor standard, and as there is no option about eating elsewhere, there is no incentive to make it any better. The food on the Fijian night was appalling. The lighting was very gloomy and it all looked the same sort of greyish mush with little taste. I don't believe that this is what the Fijian people eat, just gullible tourists. There is one television available for the whole resort, in a large well furnished tv lounge. Unfortunately, it was always tuned to Australian football. The so called library consisted of thirty or forty books obviously left by previous guests. There is one computer for internet access which is very expensive, especially as it is not on Broadband. The bures are comfortable, with separate bedrooms, a fridge and air conditioning. However, the one we were moved to was dated. About 10 were being refurbished while we were there.

The beach was clean when we were there, but the coral in the sea is very sharp and cuts badly. The snorkeling trip was not successful, as the sea was too rough to see much.

In conclusion, if you do decide to go there, don't accept Bures from 1 to 8 as they are in a very noisy location, take your own booze for your room and be prepared to wait for your meals. Bula!
