I have stayed here a few times and every time is the same, Fantastic. Great friendly helpful staff, Great food, Excellent for a place to unwind or get and do what you want. Highly recommend couldn't ask for more.

Overcrowded, poor communication and appalling food/drinks

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

Roam21141939352 TripAdvisor review

Really disappointed. Resort was over-crowded, under-staffed and disappointed with the food, drinks (all pre-mixed cocktails) and the lack of transparency regarding being overbooked. Wish it had been as it had 5-years ago. Renovations over the last 5-years are great but the experience wasn't as good.

Bonjour Roam21141939352, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We have looked into your feedback in reference to the Easter weekend. During such a time, the hotel only operated at 80% of its capacity & additionally to that, we were not allowing any external guests within the resort a week prior & after Easter in order to ensure that our in-house guests were at all times looked after. Roam, we have an excess of 400+ ambassadors working at the property daily & from most reviews, you will appreciate that we are well known for our levels of service. Roam21141939352 reading your feedback, we can only assume that you might have written your feedback for the wrong hotel. Best regards, Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa team

a perfect holiday

Chris H TripAdvisor review

Our stay was with the Waitui Beach club. Have stayed before and have always enjoyed. The staff are awesome, friendly, courteous and go out of their way to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Special mention must go to Mary and Paulini at the Waitui Club and Oni at the Solis Restaurant. who make every guest feel special

Bonjour Bula, Thank you for taking the time to reflect on your recent stay experience at Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa. We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your stay and were well looked after by our ambassadors. We do look forward to welcoming you back to Fiji in the near future. Kind regards, Hotel Management

Kim S TripAdvisor review

it was very expensive, I guess because it was Easter. the layout of the bathroom was a little odd, otherwise a nice room and clean. The air con was noisy on anything but low and kept clicking in and off all night

Fabulous, but misleading.

The hotel and all the staff were fantastic. However we thought we had upgraded to half board plus 100 dollars 💵 per person per day and the upgraded price was significantly more. Don’t be caught out like me the 100 dollars is the half board.

First holiday away after Covid

marymM4011NQ TripAdvisor review

We paid the extra to be part of the Waitui Club which is adults only so no children around the pool and happy hour every day and a good selection of nibbles several times during the day around the pool, sun tan lotion provided. Highly recommend it. All the staff are soooo friendly and great at remembering you by name. A special thanks to Waisa, Paulini, Mary, Salemi, Mateo, Zac. You are all wonderful and made our stay superb. Jack Johnston as always is a great friend and excellent in management.

Disappointed

uetravel TripAdvisor review

I was really looking forward to staying here but it just didn’t live up to my expectations. It started with a long line at check in. Room wasn’t ready which was fine as we were an hour or two early. I am a Platinum member with Accor but no welcome drink voucher, early check in or upgrade . I was just told to keep on coming back to check if my room was ready. After how long it took to get to the front of the line- I definitely wasn’t going to do that. We walked to Denarau Marina- easy flat 15 minute walk. The Marina is great with a good array of restaurants, shops and mini mart . We especially loved the Indian restaurant, Indigo. We came back in the late afternoon to get our key and went to our room. I had booked an Oceanside room and while I didn’t think it would have ocean views I didn’t expect it would be right at the back of the resort, next to their industrial air conditioning unit and recycling area. I checked with reception and they confirmed this was an Oceanside room. I own a Travel Agency and it terrifies me to think I could’ve booked a room like this for a client!! Needless to say it was extremely noisy with the air conditioning unit and then every morning before 6am the crash of recycling bottles. The resort was busy ( great to see at last) but it did mean that there were no lounges around the pool available unless you got there early. Then there were just other niggles like having to have pool tokens or they would charge you for pool towels. I couldn’t find an iron in the room so rang to ask Housekeeping to bring one and they said they don’t do that- I can give it to them and they will iron it for a fee. It all just felt a bit mean and not quite 5 star , especially given that the room rates are one of the highest on Denarau we were talking to a staff member about the fact that they’re not completely filling the resort at the moment due to Covid etc I just can’t imagine how crowded it will all feel when they go back to filling the resort!! The resort has undergone a recent renovation and looks good. I had a look at The Waitui Beach Club adults only and that looked great . I think if you stayed in suites and had access to this then you could have a good stay but for families I just don’t think this resort is ideal. We went to Radisson Blu for a few nights after Sofitel and it is not nearly as fancy in the public areas but for the same price as a room by the bins at the Sofitel we had a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom suite with water views.

Pretends to be kid friendly

peterE1288JQ TripAdvisor review

Room was not ready 1.5 hrs after checkin time. No children's food available near the pool from 3:30-5:30 and nothing on the room service menu for kids other than ‘kid size’ pizza. Pretty ordinary resort and if this is how you get treated as a Accor Silver member, good luck to non members.

Bonjour Bula Peter, Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us. We sincerely apologize for your room not being ready upon arrival as we had a hefty back to back check in and check out on that very weekend. We did try our best to make you & your family more comfortable while you waited and offered refreshments. We have over 25 dishes for kids to choose from ranging from pizzas, burgers to healthy eats as well and the menu is available from 11am to late evening. Having said all of the above, we do value your feedback, if we can be of any assistance for your future bookings, please reach out to me personally. Cordialement, Vincent Macquet

Stunning Holiday Destination

This was our 4th trip to the resort and our 2nd time staying at the Beach Club. We can't recommend this resort highly enough. We stayed on the Waitui Beach Club side The amenities are first rate and the staff are excellent. Our room was very comfortable.A shout out to Paulini, Mary, Salotem, Justin, Melinda and Aleena for really looking after us and making our stay so enjoyable.The new Journal Lounge is incredible and we will be back again.

Bonjour Bula, We thank you for choosing to stay at the Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa again and your high recommendation is greatly appreciated. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Regards, Hotel Management

Bernjim TripAdvisor review

Our family consisting of six adults just had a weeks stay at The Sofitel Waitui Club. From the moment we arrived and were helped to check in by Solo, who was so friendly and helpful, we had an amazing week. The rooms are beautifully appointed and spacious. We had a week of lying by the Adults Only pool and the service by the staff at the Waitui Club is awesome. By day 2 they knew all our names and they are always there to check if you are having a good time and where you need anything. A big thank you to Annie, Mary, Paulini, Lusi, Jope and all the staff for making our holiday so special.

Amazing and Memorable

Stopover to the Islands

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

BrisbanyLizzy TripAdvisor review

We stayed here before heading out to the islands and on the way back as the planes and ferries didn’t line up. This is a lovely resort with really lovely staff. Rooms are beautifully renovated and of a good size. The grounds are extensive and beautifully landscaped and give a wonderful tropical vibe to the whole resort. The Sofitel is a short walk to the Harbour and waterpark and easy to get around with frequent Bula. Us if your feeling lazy. We stayed when it was pouring with rain on the way over which was a pity as we didn’t use the resort to its full potential. On the way back it was sunny but somewhat spoilt by the hoards of Aussie bogans there on a package deal and determined to get their monies worth in drinks. This left the staff run off their feet during the day and service was understandably slow. I don’t think a resort of this standard should be encouraging this and I really felt for the overworked staff. Having said that they still did a great job and it was much quieter at night where we had three meals, one buffet which was underwhelming and two at Solis which were of a high standard. A special shout-out to John, the meet and greet guy, transport organiser, porter and as it turns out a breakfast sharer who found out we hadn’t eaten on our island transfer day and gave us a local Rotti wrap. He also remembered us on our return out of thousands of visitors and it is this type of kindness and warmth that will keep us coming back to place. I would highly recommend the Sofitel!

Excellent Stay - even with COVID

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

joelroland TripAdvisor review

Myself and my family recently stayed at the Sofitel Fiji at the end of January. After the first couple of days unfortunately my son came down with COVID (I think he had it before we left and at his age - 10 - they don’t require testing) and although thinking it would be terrible and stressful it actually ended up not being anywhere near as bad as stories and what you might think. The management team at Sofitel are A+.. As soon as one person tested positive myself and my son were moved into Isolation. We were given a nice safe room and area in the hotel. They checked on us multiple times a day, offered to get doctors etc and made sure we got all our meals as well. Even later, when my daughter and wife was diagnosed positive - they moved them into isolation. We got rooms next to each other so we were not crammed into a single space and made managing everything very easy. I honestly think if you are going to get isolated - why not in a nice resort with everything :) You have a balcony with nice views, they bring you every meal to your door (the Food and room service is AMAZING quality and so much variety) and anything you need is just at the end of the dial. After the 7 days (and symptom free) the COVID manager made sure we go out Fit to Fly certificates and myself and son managed to catch another 3 days at the resort to relax and enjoy the rest of the holiday. I can not thank the staff enough for making us feel calm and getting us everything we needed.

A Great Fiji Break

OZboy68 TripAdvisor review

A fantastic resort with fantastic staff who go over and above to provide great service. The Waitui Adults only area is our preference as opposed to the main kid friendly pool area. Steaks are great and so are cocktails

Bonjour Bula. Thank you for your positive feedback. We are pleased that you had a great break at Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa. Cordialement, Vincent Macquet General Manager - Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa Area General Manager- Accor Hotels Fiji

Really good experience. Dinner was superb, Staff there provided a great experience as well. However, there was a mixup with the bills as well as missing our welcome drinks. I've informed the hotel that i'll be coming back in May 15/16. Overall, a pleasant experience.

good stay, kids enjoyed themselves

Had a wonderful time, always prefer Sofitel as i have been there a lot. Only thing if guest could be served with atleast iced water. I had travelled from Suva and Nadi was too hot, when I reached the hotel, had to go and buy water as everyone were thirsty and tired. I understand cost cutting mode is on, but I feel all guests should be served with iced water as a welcoming and thoughtful gesture.

Could have been better

I love this place for sure. Therefore, my expectations were really high when I booked it. However, I didn't get as much satisfaction as my previous stays. First of all, I must say that the resort is stunning. With the renovations, the rooms are amazing and lovely. My wife and I loved the rooms. But it's the service that matters more than the rooms. Maybe I booked my free night being an Accor club member and the staff were not bothered as I was there for free. Or may I had a tremendous time in the Coral Coast resorts and had placed too many expectations. Or maybe the treatment for locals is different for locals at Sofitel. I have to admit, there were times I was even intimidated to speak or ask staff. Overall, the service seemed slow and at times I felt the touch of hospitality was missing. And now I feel I have wasted my free night.

Good stay
