Took the family there for a week in July which admittedly is the cold season. Pools were too cold to use, beach was dirty, unkempt, and in all but a few areas unswimmable. Variety of food offerings in the resort was VERY limited (although the food at the adjacent golf course was excellent and the restaurant at the nearby marina was even better, despite terrible service). For the money we spent per night, we could have done 5 * anywhere else and had a much better experience. Not even close to the experience one can have in Bali or on gold/sunshine coast of Australia, and those are 1/3 to 1/2 the cost for similar standard.

I must concur with the previous reviewers, the beach isn't flash by south pacific standards, but we found the water to be very clear (must have been the time of the year). The standard of accommodation is excellent however. We found the rooms, service and food (at the adjacent Sheraton properties) to be deserving of their five star rating. Very clean and professional.

The villas are self catering and are based on the mainland. This meant we saved some cash on food by buying groceries (extremely cheap in Nadi!!) and self catering for much of our stay. Needless to say that with a couple of kids in tow this worked quite well.

We used the villas as a launching pad to the islands, doing many day trips on cruise boats and doing single trips out to a number of islands. These are all accessable from Port Denarau which is close by. This suited us well as we were on a fairly tight budget and it meant we avoided having to pay for accommodation at island rates, but still got to enjoy the island beaches, scenery and atmosphere. It also meant we weren't locked in to any one spot.

We have travelled to Fiji a number of times now and we will certainly be using the Villas again on subsequent trips.

We visited the Denarau villas (which are part of the Sheraton Denarau complex, including the Royal Denarau and the Sheraton Fiji Resort) in February 2005. All three are on Denarau island, which is joined to the main Fiji island by a causeway. Although this is an island, it feels like the mainland, and has none of the small paradise island charm that represent holidays in Fiji.

Denarau feels like a generic hotel anywhere in the world, partly because it lacks the beautiful white sandy beaches and isolated feel of Fiji's small islands.

The rooms were very nicely decorated and furnished - representative of how a five star hotel should be.

The grounds are pleasant and well laid out, with nice gardens. Although the three resorts together are large, you can walk from one end to the other in about five to ten minutes, and there is a shuttle bus for those less mobile.

The two pools looked very dirty while we were there - the water was greenish. On our last day, one of the pools had been cleaned and the water was a nice clean blue. We were not impressed that a five-star hotel would have pools that looked this dirty, and it discouraged us from swimming. Swimming in the sea isn't really an option either as the water is quite dirty there, unlike Fiji's outlying islands where the water is beautifully clean.

The food was really disappointing. We struggled to find a decent meal at any of the seven or so restaurants. The Blue Vonu was the best, and breakfast at the Verandah was excellent - a buffet with a huge choice and fresh-cooked eggs of your choice. Breakfast is not included for Villa guests.

I would not visit this hotel again - we felt we had completely missed the point of going to Fiji.

One thing I would definitely recommend to visitors is a day trip on the Coral Cat. This is a 32-foot sailing catamaran, which sails daily from Denarau port (they will collect you from the hotel). The trip takes you dolphin-spotting near a reef (we had about 20 dolphins swimming right with the boat for about 15 minutes), then onto Musket Cove (------) at Malolo Lailai island for an excellent barbeque lunch, where you can see the real Fiji, then back to Denarau. Brilliant day out, with a maxiumum of 15 people on board.

The hotel was nice enough and the staff were insanely eager to please, but the beach is quite unfortunate. Not only does the mangrove runoff make for disappointingly murky water, but the sand is coarse and pebbly as well. That said, the food offerings were plentiful and tasty and the rooms neat and clean. Overall a good experience (and an excellent value with the current Fiji-to-American dollar exchange rate) if it were not for the beach.
