Stayed here for the second year running, but unfortunately a lot has changed and probably won't be coming back here. Firstly it appears coming in November as opposed to October, there just isn't as much going on, although the staff obviously have been made aware of anything. Hard to know where to start, but I'll give it a go.
Beach water sports for children now takes place half way to the other hotel and the priority is for jets skis, which you can do in front of the hotel, but are an severe risk to families and young children.
Childrens activities including pool tables, table tennis tables, table football were all out of action, despite being told they weren't before we left and none of the staff knowing why.
Checking in at the Westin is a real pain, especially if you have any real queries and are staying at the Villas. I had to trapes back and forth a good few times and wait each time in hot sticky conditions. Still not sure why we couldn't check in to the Villas or main Sheraton like last year.
Wifi is a joke and despite mentioning so many times and being told it was being looked at, nobody came back to me and the only area you can pick it up properly is in the lobby of the main entrance. Tough work qhen you have 2 young boys to keep quiet.
Service as we know in Fiji is slow and we appreciate the heat impacts, but some waiting for food and drinks by the pool or adjacent areas were between 30 mins to an hour and we often had to remind them.
Please check your hotel and other bills carefully as were were charged twice for a trip of over $500!
The breakfast has taken over an Indian theme which might just be the cook, but odd given the demographic of holiday makers.
We all know it's expensive, but something as simple as one small tub (approx 4 small mouth fulls) cost $10 Fiji.
I guess it's also important to reflect on the positives.
The pools are great with something for everyone.
Most of the staff are really friendly lovely people.
Rooms and accomodation pretty good.
Maybe it's time for a change or maybe I'm being too demanding.
This was just the perfect holiday. The facilities were outstanding but what made the stay even better was the wonderful staff. From reception,housekeeping, porters, gardeners and restaurant staff we received nothing but friendly and efficient service. Notning was too much trouble. The buffet breakfast is amazing and we also had wonderful evening meals. A special thank-you to the chefs( Ratnesh,Ashuoin, Raj,Pop,Ali and Wais who prepared wonderful tasty meals at the Wet Edge restaurant and all the gorgeous ladies who seved the tables.
Vinaka vaka levu.
