Not worth the money
Posted 03-Oct-2018 on Hotels
Overall, the resort is lovely. The grounds, restaurant and staff are absolutely beautiful. The staff really try to make you feel at home and are incredibly pleasant. However, for the price you pay, it truly is not worth it.
The room is comfortable, however, having paid $875CAD per night, for a bure without a pool, the room was nothing special. Also, having just stayed at Manta Ray Island resort & Blue Lagoon Island resort in the Yasawa Islands where we paid under $400 CAD per night for much nicer rooms and Momi Bay @ the Marriott in an overwater bungalow where we paid $1200 per night, for a spacious and beautiful bungalow on top of the ocean, the value of our money at Tokoriki is not comparable to the accommodations at the resorts listed above.
In addition, we found the menu to be extremely expensive and limited. There is only one restaurant at the resort so you’re forced to dine there. At Momi Bay, for example, there were expensive and inexpensive options. Also, at Manta & Blue Lagoon we paid $100/$120 per person, per day, for all three meals, and the food was just as good if not better at times.
Finally, not having wifi in the room is definitely an inconvenience. Overall, beautiful resort, but if I return to Tokoriki Island, I would definitely stay at the Sheraton and save $450 CAD per night!

Thank you for your review and lovely comments about our beautiful team, lush tropical gardens and restaurant. We also have a Teppanyaki restaurant and various dining locations with daily changing menus which offers different dining experiences. It sounds like you may have missed the Teppanyaki restaurant which has no added charges when on the meal plan. Being an adults only resort with only 36 contemporary and Fijian styled bures & villas, by design we do not offer wifi in our accommodations to ensure pure relaxation and a romantic ambience of which we have become renowned for and we do hope you were aware of this before booking your stay. Free wifi is available 24 hrs in the lounge or if required wifi data can be arranged by your provider prior to leaving your country for a small charge. Vinaka from the amazing Tokoriki team.
