How to Get There
In depth review of Paradise Cove Resort.
1)This resort is set between a channel that runs from top to bottom of the resort and the waters in the channel area can get very choppy when the winds blow making it unpleasant for snorkelling around the house reefs.
2) Large resort (over 50 bures) with one large Swimming pool around the Bar with plenty of sun lounges, activities shop and bar.
3) Adults only area has two smaller swimming pools with garden villas around it and a boat bar
4) The beach villas in the adults only area have a small plunge pool and lounge on the balcony facing the beach
5) With it being a large resort it tends to be a little bit more impersonal with not a lot of interaction between guest although the staff are all very helpful and friendly from the welcome to the resort work staff and office all trying to make your stay as pleasant as possible
7) The seating at the very large restaurant has individual seating for guest on a timber floor. Except for the Meke night where the staff sing and perform in the adults only area when Restaurant seating is set for larger group tables.
8) The meal plan is rather expensive compared to other resorts(currently FJ$199.00 P/P per day) but with many choices for breakfast /lunch and Dinner all included and if you have any special dietary requirements they can be addressed too.The food is excellent
9)We stayed in a garden bure with an outdoor shower they provided 2 free bottles of Fiji water on arrival and you could fill it up at the bar which had had filtered water to one Micron. The room was air-conditioned and also had a fan with louvered slats and all fly screened. Hangers and hanging space was provided in the room along with a fridge, safe , tea and coffee making facilities (fresh milk available at the bar). The bathroom had a hair dryer and toiletries that included Shower gel, Shampoo and conditioner with lots of water pressure for the hot and cold water in the shower. Just a note here bures 1 and 15 are close to the workers area and generator which can be heard at night. Best to steer clear of these rooms if possible
10)Note during our stay in May workers sprayed the garden paths and foliage for mosquitoes in the late afternoon so it would be a good idea to take some insect repellents. They do provide some at the bar for use Free of charge when drinking there before dinner.
11) There is only one beach for snorkelling in and it can get choppy with the wind. Snorkelling gear and beach towels are provided free of charge with tokens to exchange. Unfortunately there is lots of dead coral scattered along the beach which is not swept daily. Snorkelling around their reef is quite good. Lots of colourful fish but mostly dead coral so could be still recovering from the 2016 cyclone.
12) On site there is a massage room, a gym , a kids club and teens club
13) The resort also has a walking track that goes up to sunset point and further then returns the same way. Very good if you like walks, it is not very steep so an easy walk.
14) When we were there in May it wasn't very busy only twenty -two people so requested and was given a late check out as the flyer does not come until 3:00pm to return to Denarau.
All in all this was an enjoyable stay with great staff all around but just lacked the family spirit of the smaller resorts. If you need to know anything else please personal message me.
PS I have attached lots of photos of the resort to assist your decision to travel there.
A beautiful piece of Fiji. We arrived by seaplane and that was wonderful. The welcome was in typical, friendly Fijian style, and this friendly service continued throughout our stay. Our beachfront villa was lovely, but not as spacious as other resorts we've stayed at in that price bracket. The restaurant was good, but the compulsory meal package should be available as a two-meal-a-day option, Three big meals a day is simply too much food for some of us. The wifi stopped working on our first day (this also meant no television) and never worked again for our entire stay. No announcement was made, nor was any compensation offered (a complimentary drink would have gone a long way towards restoring goodwill).
The family pool needed more regular cleaning. There are two adult only pools which were virtually unused, while the main pool is not large enough to cater for the entire resort. As we had a problem with sea lice (the weather's fault), the sea wasn't always an option for swimming, so the adult pools should have been made more accessible. Kids from the age of 12 pay full adult rates, so perhaps should also be allowed in the adult pool.
Happy hour is not worth waiting for. No great specials, so do expect a steep bar bill upon departure (as is the case almost anywhere in Fiji).
Overall, a good resort, but not worthy of its five stars.
We are starting to lose count of how many times we have visited Paradise Cove. Why? Because it never fails us. Each time we leave feeling refreshed, relaxed and looking forward to the next visit. Until this changes we will enjoy the easy flight from New Zealand and relatively quick transfer to the island that makes even a short visit, for us, viable.
Paradise Cove maintains an excellent standard. This time was no exception and the new managers have been mindful not to change a formula that works. Again I have to say this is a resort that has successfully managed to cater both for family groups and couples. The range of accommodation is both high quality and suits a cross section of budgets. "The Cove" adults only villas are fantastic. Great, relaxed place for couples to eat, swim and has ample places to get away from other guests.
We opt for the Paradise Suites. Extremely well appointed and as always spotlessly clean. Love the fact we can also walk with the island being big enough to allow exercise after enjoying their food.
The food is excellent! This island maintains one of the highest overall standards of food we have experienced in Fiji. We are regular visitors and have been to many islands and resorts - Paradise Cove never fails to provide fresh, tasty and generous meals.
The other thing worth mentioning is the personal service. It is slightly larger than many places we have visited. However, the staff all remember our names, ask after our family and even took the time to provide us with a cake as returnee's. Lovely touch and that is what keeps us coming back.
Until next time - thank you Paradise Cove for looking after us and don't hesitate to book here if you are visiting Fiji.
This is really a super fantastic small scale resort on a fantastic location.
Couple unique highlights:
- beautiful own little island, true paradise
- good rooms with comfy beds and air con that works properly
- many activities organized (new schedule every day) with fantastic snorkeling around the island
- fantastic staff that make you feel at home
- superb food with lots of choices in compulsory meal plan. It’s a la carte for breakfast, lunch and diner
- many facilities for kids with babysitters for infants (one dedicated babysitter for our 1 yr old and we could choose if and when she would babysit), a kids club with a fully loaded fun schedule, etc
This island is the quintessential Fiji Island. It has the right mix of traditional laid back Fiji beauty and luxury. We stayed in the 2 bedroom beach bure which was amazing. Kids loved kids club, Ana was so good with our girls and they adored her. Also had a lively nanny Sulu for our 1 year old. Great snorkelling both straight off the beach and also the guided snorkelling too. The food was next level amazing. The peanut butter parfait for dessert was one of the best desserts I've had. An awesome family holiday and We will definitely be back.
