"An overnight stay while having a self-drive tour"
Friendly welcome by attentive staff, good security for our rental car, enjoyed continental breakfast.
At the detour for a bridge reconstruction it would have been helpful to indicate the route to the hotel

We had a great family holiday, amazing snorkeling right off the beach, great staff very friendly couldn't do enough to help. Fantastic location - a bit of a trek from the airport but well worth the effort.
We hired a car and parked near the jetty where you catch the boat to the island. 51/2 hour drive from Nadi via the South road through Suva. We returned to the north which is an easier trip and under 4 hours.
Amazing to arrive by boat.
Some of the best snorkeling and diving in Fiji - good fishing too.
Keen to go back soon
This beachfront resort is 60 km from Suva City and 20 minutes from Ovalau by boat (see Location page for transportation …More
I can't praise this hotel highly enough. I chose to stay in Nadi, rather than travel a long distance when I arrived, as I figured I could take some good trips from there and that is exactly what I did.
The hotel staff were great: Michelle checked me in and remembered my name and any requests any time I saw her. All of the staff were really friendly and helpful. The restaurant serves good meals. Breakfast is a buffet, with a chef on hand to cook eggs for you to order, any way you like them. At FJD20, it was pretty good value. I didn't have lunch in the hotel, as I was out every day. Dinner was great, with a good menu. I am on a gluten and dairy free diet but that was not an issue, as there were suitable options for me. My only disappointment was that I couldn't get a decaffeinated coffee in the hotel, so I bought some in the local supermarket (5 minutes walk) and used the plunger supplied in my room.
The room was good. I was upgraded from a Superior to Executive and the room was huge, with a queen size bed and a sofa and two chairs. The bathroom had two washbasins and a shower and toilet. Toiletries were supplied, as was a hairdryer, although I took my own.
I used the spa on my last day for a back and foot massage and Vimi did a great job for me at a reasonable price.
Louisa on the tour desk was wonderful and organised exactly what I wanted. She was just great.
The hotel is truly a resort hotel with many amenities, including an oversized pool with a water falls, bridge, and it even had a built-in twisting slide, for all ages in that we saw more adults using it than children. It also has a huge covered patio area and an outstanding bar and restaurant, which features smooth native-Fijian music nightly from 6 to 10 p.m. The entire staff team delivered five-star service, during our stay.
Thank goodness I booked the whole 7 days here at the Raffles - as I had my daughter in Law plus 12 & 17 year old grandchildren with me I wanted a good base camp. They just made it so perfect to get and book tours - taxis etc.
