Thank you Plantation Island! We stayed for 7 nights at the end of October and loved it. I was a bit worried after reading lots of negative reviews but glad we pretty much disregarded them. Garden Bure was in a great location - 323 very close to pool, beach and restaurants. We hired the Bula bikes and they were great... More

This is a mixed review... First we have the island which is just amazing! The colour of that blue water and the clarity ...breathtaking! The resort itself had lots of free activities, however the service was disappointing. The free activities included: 3 swimming pools, water park, putt putt golf, tennis, table tennis, kids club, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding and snorkelling.... More

Bula Suzy Unreserved apologies for the bites, it is pleasing though that we quickly remedied the situation including a satisfactory room move. I would like to point out that bed bugs are not a sign of an unhygienic room or lack of cleaning. Bed bugs do not spread disease and are unfortunately sometimes brought in by travellers as they host... More

From poor quality food (at exorbitant prices) to bed bugs to a decor that hasn't been updated in 20 years, this was one of the most over-rated places I have ever been. I was really looking froward to a Fiji family break. I paid premium for the waterfront villa. The price point was very much more than what I would... More

I got back last night from 6 nights at Plantation Island Resort.
