It's relaxing and cute but don't go there for the beach! The people are good, fun, and nice.

Breakfast is very poor..... Wifi very expensive...

The biggest drawback is the location. This beach is called Wailoaloa in Fijian, which means black black (really black) water basically mud flats. There is nowhere to swim, and watersports are only possible at high tide, which is few hours a day. The snorkeling trip is waste of time. The hotel is also very remote, there is absolutely nothing nearby, just a swamp. The restaurant is good but pricy. Chinese restaurant in Nadi is half the price for twice the taste, but the taxi to town is F$16 roundtrip. Entertainment is worth seeing once. Plenty of coconuts. This is basically a stopover place for treckers and those not seeking more than warm sun due to being so close to the airport. We ended up booking trips to neighboring islands to make it worth our while.

Just so so. The beach is dirty. I have no much to say.

Great place to stay if only going for a few days, I do not recommend more than that. They have a nice beach and it's very quiet. Simple is the best way I can describe it.

So, we stayed twice in this resort on the way to and from Australia, mostly because it was close to the airport and Denarau marina from where we were able to take snorkeling trips to the reef. As I wrote before, there is no usable beach or swimming in the sea because of mud. Wailoaloa means "black water" in Fijian. The surf stirs up black mud and the sea is shallow for a hundred yards, so turns black. Some people just sit by the pool, but we felt like hotel was misrepresented as we came to Fiji for the white sandy beach and swimming in clean sea.

Why people go to Fiji? We went for swimming in the warm sea and basking on the beach. You will NOT get that at Club Fiji Resort. The sea is mud and the beach is grey sand. At low tide, which is most of the day, the sea retreats 100 yards, so you cannot even use kayaks. Snorkeling trips are a joke - 5 people per day max and there is no fish there. But, there is plenty of coconuts, and you need to watch for them not to fall on your head (didn't happen to us). We've had coconuts in all stages of ripeness and shape and form, and fresh off the trees. Airport shuttle is one-way; must pay taxi for return. Breakfast is basic but suffices. Dinner food is ok but pricey. Chinese restaurant in Nadi is a fraction of what they charge. Overall, resort is ok IF it were on the USABLE beach. If you want beach, go to Coral Coast, Natadola. It will set you back some $$, but you will get what you came to Fiji for.

On the positive side: the personnel was very friendly and accommodating. However the room was very basic: no radio,TV or standard aircon (it was very hot!!), it had a fridge though. The bed was OK but we had bugs that crawled over us at night - either they were brought in from outside (the beach?) or they were in the bed. These left us with some bad bite marks. The restaurant food was good.

It's just ok. The staff seems poorly trained so dont expect a high level of service. Also expect to pay extra for typical amenities such as shuttle, coffee creamer, air conditioning for your room, etc.

If you're looking for a place to stay for a few days that is relaxed, clean and secluded, yet a five minute cab ride to town, this is a really great choice. It's down the end of a long dirt road right on the water, the grounds and buildings are well kept and lovely, very traditional Fijian in theme. There are two decent restaurants right on the premises (pizza at jb's with a great water view!), and it's extremely quiet. I noticed a few complaints that it was a bit far from town, but for us it seemed so close, but you still felt you were in a very secluded location, which is what we wanted. The beach scenery was really beautiful, nice to look at although if you're looking for crystal clear water and great swimming, this is not the place. The water is very shallow and at certain points of the day you have to walk several yards out to get to the water. But you can still cool off. There is a pool, so you have that option. We flew in two days before our main hotel was ready, so we picked this place for a stop over, and we were very pleasantly surprised at how nice it really was for the price.

IT WAS WONDERFUL AND REMOTE AND EVERYTHING WAS AS I EXPECTED FROM THE REVIEWS ON YOUR SITE............THE STAFF WAS AMAZING AND THE PLACE WELL TAKEN CARE OF ........WHEN THE TIDE WAS IN THE BEACH WAS BEAUTIFUL .........WHICH I KNEW FROM THE REVIEWS...........IT WAS THE REST AND QUIET I NEEDED BEFORE I PROCEEDED ON TO AUSTRALIA

Relaxed,enjoyed good food,Great staff at hotel

+ Nice burres, hammocks on the beach, friendly personal. - Hotel shuttle is more (triple!) expensive than local taxi. After 10pm is for air transit traveler impossible to dine or buy something in hotel or surrounding. Staff from reception desk cannot help with local electric adapter. Bad internet in the hotel (good choice is very very cheap local Vodafone wireless card 3G/HSDPA available from Airport kiosk - 500MB=39F$ only!).

Great place to just chill. If you're looking for a place to get away from it all, it's just what the doctor ordered.
