Rated 4 out of 5 by Vee72 8 Child Free Nights!
Had a lovely time at the Sheraton Denarau. Staff were very friendly, and were always happy to help with any queries. Air conditioning was good in our room. Large modern bathroom. Very expensive to eat at the resort, so we ate at Port Denarau most of the time. The buffet breakfast was good with plenty of variety, although my husband wasn't pleased when bacon was only served every 2nd day! Once it was on the 3rd day! lol The choice of pools over the 3 resorts was great. We liked the Stay in 1 and play in all 3 availability. Our favourite pool was the ocean side pool at the Villas. We had great weather even though it was into the rainy season, it only rained 1 evening. And we didn't even get one mosquito bite the whole trip!! Lots of toads hopping around at night which didn't bother us. Would definitely stay again. : )

Rated 4 out of 5 by Peter69 The little things
A group of us stayed 10 nights in the Sheraton , over all it was great but the little things need addressing , EG, 1room had no kettle , 1 no iron after asking for a kettle for 4 days they gave up , some never got hand towels after room was serviced , as the tiltle suggeests its just the little things that take a shine off the hotel , over all its great .
But needs a little bit more attention to details for a 5 star hotel

The Sheraton fiji is a wonderful hotel for sitting poolside and relaxing especially wtih cocktails. The pool areas (several) are all great and your big choice will be to decide which pool to lounge at.

Rated 3 out of 5 by claudie11 Room not organised
I was really disappointed with my room not being organised from the first day i arrived. There were no toilletries items, no room service menu, not bath plug so i couldn't take a bath no Spa menu. Basically my room was empty! This is not what i expected from Sheraton hotel since i had stayed in lots of other sheraton hotel before. Receptionists are not polite! Really upsetting!

Rated 4 out of 5 by jhofsf good hotel/value for Denarau
overall enjoyed our stay here - but found Westin nicer - Were a lot of families there - not as quiet as we wanted - and stayed at Likuliku on Mololo afterwards - and was a world of difference - so glad we did not have Denarau/Nadi as our whole Fiji experience.
Sheraton did have a good value, nice food options, and access/room/bed//facilities - wished I could have gotten points for staying, but did not realize I could not get them if booked by a travel agent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Peter3146 Great young family destination
You never really know how well an organisation functions until you have a moment when things do not run as they should. Their response then informs your opinion.
We had a couple of issues with housekeeping forgetting items such as towels - rang guest services and problem rectified straightaway with a smile.
Great location for families with sub-teens and those wanting a romantic few days.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AngelaWheelie Accessibility for Wheelchair Users
I am a self propelling wheelchair user and having struggled for the first few days with numerous steps at a neighbouring hotel I was gratefully moved to the Sheraton and what a relief. I could access everywhere on my own and any time I found myself stuck a staff member seemed to appear by magic to give me the push I needed. I would have loved to rate everything at excellent but the accessible room let the complex down. There was no bar in the shower, the bathroom tiling was so badly installed that when showering the entire bathroom flooded leaving it dangerous for me to get round and the front sliding door was difficult to open and close due to the bottom rail being damaged by heavy electric wheelchair use. A few simple things could have changed this. If this is ever read by management, a couple of rubber Raven ramps at each side of the sliding door would stop further damage and make access easier, and a bar in the shower is a very cheap and pretty essential item to a wheelchair user. Aside from this the staff were enormously caring and attentive, the food lovely and as the destination for my first overseas trip as a wheelchair user it was almost ideal. I can't wait to come again but will check these few things first next time.

There were two main problems with our stay , one was being a smoker there were very few places to have a cigarette and the other was the price of food and drink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sydelle2014 The resort pools
My daughters and us thoroughly enjoyed the resort pools. We also enjoyed the availability of visiting the Westin and the Villa pool areas. The staff is welcoming and very attentive. We will be returning visitors because the vacation was very enjoyable and we appreciated the great service and attention. The Kids club was also a great added benefit and the nanny service was Awesome. Thanks for making our vacation GREAT. The Clemens Family

Rated 4 out of 5 by MURRAY51 Beautiful room
We enjoyed our stay, however, due to circumstances beyond our control, we arrived a day late - our room wasn't ready (?) and then they sent us to a room under construction (?). I requested bath robes twice and then only one arrived. Beautiful rooms, well maintained, lovely staff and very comfortable bed. I enjoyed watching the various weddings that occurred and the ability to be able to join in at the other resorts

My husband and two children stayed at the Sheratonin Fiji. Our experience was overall a fantastic stay. Our location of the room was breathtaking with a view overlooking the pool and beach. The room was always clean and maintained. The kids enjoyed the activities of the kids club and made lots of friends. The staff were exceptinal and fullfilled all our needs. I cant thank the staff enough they made us feel welcome and cant wait to return

Rooms are a good size but there is improvement needed on doors ceilings as they are showing wear and tear.It would be great to have a laundry facility at these resorts as the cleaning service you offer is very expensive especially when travelling with a family..
But the overall experience was pleasant.

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Loved the way the rooms were distributed across the property—provided a very secluded feel. Top notch personnel. I recommend this hotel.
SPG RECOGNITION: I was given an upgraded room with a great view of the ocean. My room opened up to a small porch and I could walk about 30 feet across the lawn to the beach.
THE ROOM: Large, spacious with private patio that opened up onto the beach. Great way to start the day!
EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS: Room location. Exercise room was also very nice—providing wide range of free weights, cardio and strength training machines.
DID NOT MEET EXPECTATIONS: I was at the property in May and the water was murky (muddy). I’m not sure if it was just from recent heavy rains, or what. As we flew out, we crossed over the resort and I could see that the water was crystal blue about 100 yards off the beach.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JaneLau one of the poorer stay out of many other SPG hotels
I had always been happy with SPG hotels but certainly not this one.
The receptionist didn't seem recognize my SPG loyalty, she didn't give me the direction to the room until i asked and yet just simply pointed at a direction without smile. My booking confirmation noted that i need extra bed, but she failed to make the arrangement (we did not get the extra bed). We also waited long for our luggage, we ended up picking up the luggage from lobby on our own to avoid further delay.
Besides this receptionist, there were a few other staffs who were lack of smile (or energy). There are friendly staff like the tour desk, the gardeners. And the front desk staff assist us for the checkout, she did not hesitate to solve our billing issue when i told her we didn't get the extra bed. Her professionalism has changed my mind to give SPG another try if i will return to Fiji again.

Great atmosphere, everything covered, entertainment, facilities for Families & also catering for Adult only Guests. Lovely to see so many happy, smiling faces & ready to assist Staff. Would like to acknowledge all the Wait Staff in the Restaurants, Housekeepers very obliging. We even noticed how friendly the Ground Staff were, the gardens & walk ways all kept beautifully clean. The Porters & Reception Staff very welcoming & efficient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jonmac46 This hotel has really good management and very competent staff.
My wife and I went to the Sheraton Denaru for a mid year break from a very cold Melbourne. What we found exceeded our expectations on a number of levels. We don't have young children but everywhere we looked we saw the hotel staff assisting young families to enjoy their day. Port O' Call was a very pleasant fine dining experience and ambiance. The Flying Fish restaurant under the very competent hand of Lucasz was a pleasure to be in to experience the indoor/alfresco mix with an excellent menu, wine list and staff. Chime with its band created a really relaxing nightspot where listening to excellent music and singing while eating tap pas was most enjoyable.The pastries and coffee from the Pantry were really moorish - return daily quality (!). The Feast restaurant with its overflowing breakfast buffet was really something to experience as the scope of choice was just so really wide. The absolute topper for us was the daily "singing off" of those leaving with the hauntingly beautiful song Ise Lei.
For us it wasn't farewell so much as au revoir.
Add to all of that the lapping of the waves on the beach, the sunsets, the water sports - this venue is superb because it caters for everyone with the Kids Club and pools, Adult areas and close proximity to the Sheraton Villas and Westin properties.
We found the management from the GM down to be receptive and most helpful (they listen and act!!) whenever consulted.
We will definitely be back in August 2015.

We loved our stay and only wish it was longer. Ports o Call as always was outstanding, and the buffet breakfasts at Feast perfect. Beautiful pools and facilities.
Only issues were the people upstairs from or unit were very noisy (moving furniture/partying etc) during the night and so we didn't sleep well. And the taxi organised for us through the hotel porter overcharged substantially for our return trip to the airport.

Had a wonderful time staying in this hotel especially the food in the different in-house restaurants. That wagyu steak at Flying fish was superb! Staff was friendly however some services were slow (took some time before bags were delivered in our room, baby cot set-up etc). The linens and pillows need to be updated as they were musty. Over-all experience was good though and we'd be considering this hotel again on our return trip.

We had a wonderful week (our second visit) to the Sheraton Fiji (Denarau). My nine year old son had the best time in Kids Club and was desperate to go every day. Kelea, Laila and the rest of the team are fantastic - warm, caring, happy, and excellent with the kids from age 4-12. The program changed daily and I could not get my son out of there! It was lovely to see him so happy and to have a really good rest myself. Thanks guys!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Cotey72 Shade Required
Each day entailed a battle to obtain a shady area. These were in high demand. They need much more shelter from the sun.
A lap pool for sheraton guests is needed, not just a shallow lagoon pool with rough bottom. Two of our group grazed themselves on the pool floor.
The pool water was hot and cloudy.
Lots of problems with the room, things missing and faulty. Each time it took on average two calls to get things repaired, replaced etc.
Food in restaurants was way overpriced and there are no affordable dinner options on site.
Seemed to be sea lice in the ocean? No information provided about this.
Public bathroom areas need air conditioning. The one near the flying fish was constantly dirty and horribly hot and wet. Quite easy to pass out. The toilet sanitisers were all empty.
The lobster at flying fish was tough and I could not eat it.
Thank you. Colette

Rated 3 out of 5 by GJR3 Good but fell a little short
Good except ..
1. When I went to the pool one afternoon with my son, the staff told me they ran out of towels.. My son was already in the pool (5yo) and the staff member told me i can just just go back to my room and get a towel from there? Considering I was paying probably someones annual salary to stay and enjoy the resort and the fact that my 5yo was in the pool I wasn't about to wander back to my room leave him there and get a towel !
2. When leaving no one showed up to collect our bags. then I carried all the bags with my wife and 2 kids to the front desk ( I had booked this earlier and also called the porters when no one showed)
Then when we arrived the car we had booked had been taken by another customer because we were 15 mins late at this point.. (Fiji time?)
3. Ladies in Feast were excellent with our kids
4. Ladies at the front desk were excellent

I visited this resort in February which is considered low season, I would highly recommend visiting at this time. It was both peaceful and enjoyable and the kids and I had an amazing relaxing time. The Sheraton is a safe and beautiful place to stay. The Kids club and nanny service is amazing and your kids will enjoy it dearly. Overall this experience was bliss the staff are wonderful, friendly and you feel safe and satisfied.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Max45 This hotel can do better
Potentially an excellent facility with great outlook, but overpriced for what you get. Let down by many little things that shouldnt happen, such as lack of maintenance of some items in room, incorrect towels left in bathroom, wire door in bad repair, no shade on ceiling light, etc. Food overall a let down and very pricy. Hotel catering for families at expense of quiet enjoyment for couples

Rated 5 out of 5 by OllyOwl This is the best place I have ever been in 50 years
My first impression when we arrived was WOW. Am I staying here?. You bet, this is what is called living the dream. The Resort layout, the restaurants, the view from our Ocean Studio Room, the pools, the food and the People made this the best holiday We have ever had. My Son wants to get married in Fiji and We intend to help him realise his dream, because we want to come back as well. Love your part of the world.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Decoiti Nice comfortable resort
Resort is nice, as a Sheraton resort I expected it to be a little more upmarket. The room was comfortable but paint was peeling off the roof(looked a little un maintained) I never expected that at a Sheraton resort. I have stayed in Sheraton hotels and they are generally upmarket.
Besides that we had a nice relaxing stay, staff were very good at getting receipts signed and our bill was correct at check out.

The location is beautiful- the Sheraton has the best-kept grounds and best beach access on Denarau, but it's not even the that which makes it special. It's the staff. Every single person at the three Starwood properties were welcoming, friendly and said "Bula," every time. They recognized us and remembered our names and room number, making sure each experience in the restaurants or bars were personalized.
