Historical Traveler Reviews Warwick Fiji Resort & Spa Coral Coast
Could not fault the Warwick
I just cannot believe some of the reviews I have read on here. This hotel was certainly the highlight of a round the world trip. Staff marvellous, if treated with respect and politeness and nothing was too much trouble. Food excellent, sea view rooms out of this world. As for the comments about snorkelling, OK so it's not the Great Barrier Reef, but there is some good snorkelling available if you just spend a little time looking for it. No tipping!
Prices very reasonable. Weather great and pools and beach never overcrowded. shades and sunbeds always available. OK, so it's a fair way from the airport, but at least you don't get aircraft noise! We even got a greetings postcard from the hotel on our return to the UK. Would definitely go again, in fact I can't wait!
Lovely People Everything you need
Stayed at the Warwick in March 2005 and it was wonderful. The Fijian people would have to be some of the nicest people I have come across in the world. They may be laid back but so were we, we were on a holiday. Considering we got in at around 9am and check in is at 3pm, the staff were very helpful in getting our room ready shortly after we arrived, yet they were not obliged to do this. If you are arriving in early morning I would suggest possibly booking an extra night so that you have a room ready when you arrive. The hotel is exactly how it looks in the brochures with the weather some of the best we have experienced anywhere in the world - considering we went in the wettest time of the year and it rained one afternoon, I am eager to see what the weather is like when we head back hopefully later in the year. The hotel is quite large and was fairly well booked when we were there, so breakfasts and lunch times were quite busy, but apart from that there was plenty of space to do our own thing and relax as we did! We went at a time when some Australian school holidays were on and hence there were plenty of families around and the pools were quite busy - however it did not bother us because there is the beach, the tennis and squash courts, massage centre, 4 restaurants all with high quality food; the Italian restaurant was fantastic. The lunches were quite American style burger and fries; however there was a buffet that catered for healthier tastes. A tip for those who would prefer a quieter end of the complex for their room, request the Suva Wing. We had an all inclusive package with 3 meals per day and unlimited alcohol and this was a great idea as we did not have to worry about extra costs. The lovely thing about Fiji is that you don't have people trying to sell you something everywhere you go, unlike some of the more Indonesian cities. We would definitely recommend and return to the Warwick.
Best hotel ever!!!
We stayed at the Warwick hotel for our honeymoon in January 2005.
We hadn't been to Fiji before and booked the Warwick on recommendations we had heard, and definitely didn't regret it and were very pleased with our choice.
The hotel is amazing. It is huge and has 2 pools plus the beach for swimming so it never felt too busy and you always had your own space.
We had an ocean view room with a fantastic view. It was very comfortable and the air-conditioning worked a treat!!
There is plenty of eating choices at dinner time and we were not disappointed with any of our meals. All of them were delicious and reasonably priced.
Hotel is 2 hours from the airport though so that was the only downfall.
You really don't need to leave once you are there though.
I recommend staying on an island for some of the holiday as this is where all the water sports and snorkelling is (the snorkelling at the Warwick isn't worth doing).
Highly recommend the walking trip up to the waterfall with a local. It was only $15 each and heaps of fun.
Would definitely stay there again. Luxury!!!
We really loved our stay at the Warwick and thought it a very good value. The rooms were clean and very pleasant, the grounds well maintained and the service friendly. The breakfast buffet was generous and good, more like a brunch, served in a nice airy room open to the sea, while local staff members sang Fiji tunes. Lovely!!! Lunch was included in our deal and served in the poolside restaurant, often again serenaded by a group of Fijians. We particularly loved the grilled fish which was terrific! Free kayaks and snorkel gear were readily available to expore the water and sealife. One of the restaurants is on a little (semi) island with the most fabulous romantic setting for a sunset dinner for two! We plan to come back!
Don't stay here if you want great snorkeling
We ( 2 adults 2 children) stayed here in Dec 04 and found it to be a fairly average place, a little worse for wear, and the food was not great The biggest disappointment was there was little beachfront snorkeling. We stayed at the Shangri-la Fijian in a coral reef room in 2002 and found it much better value for money, the food was better, rooms bigger and refurbished and the best beachfront snorkeling I have ever seen.....a reef right on shore with the most amazing array of fish.
I have been to the Warwick 4 times. Everytime I have been I have been treated like a VIP. The service is great, food is great and of course the staff make the hotel a great place that it is.
The Warwick is great for families and even for couples.
Activities vary there is tennis, fishing, table tennis, golf, the list goes on.
Great service, the rooms have recently been renovated, new furtniture.
I have read other reviews from other tourists that have been to the Warwick, many tourists are very rude and expect everything done at once.
The Fijians are great people and even though they may do things Fiji time you should give the Hotel a chance.
After reading the previous reviews, I was a little apprehensive about staying at the Warwick. It was our first stop on a round the world trip, and after travelling for over 24 hours, we wanted to stop somewhere relaxing for a few days to get over our jetlag.
We arrived at sunset, and the views from the reception were breathtaking - it was like being in paradise! Unfortunately, all the beach view rooms were booked, but our room overlooked the mountains and was clean, big and very comfortable.
The staff at the hotel are so friendly - everyone says 'Bula' (the Fijian 'Hello') as they walk past. There were plenty of restaurants to choose from - the Wicked Walu on its own island was fantastic, as was the Italian. The breakfasts were great - you just help yourself to a huge selection of food.
The only downside to the hotel is its distance from the airport / where trips to the islands start. It takes about one and a half to two hours each way to Nadi - which becomes quite a drag after you've done the trip a few times!
My advise is to ignore the previous bad reviews - if you stop at the Warwick Fiji, you'll have a wonderful, relaxing break.
Had a wonderful time
Not sure where the other people who have reviewed this resort stayed but it can't have been at the same place my husband and I had the good fortune to spend a week at! The Hotel is not new but the restaurants, receptions areas, pools and grounds are beautiful. The rooms could do with a little TLC but are clean and well maintained. The food, especially breakfast, was fantastic. In fact after breakfast we didn't need lunch at all. We stayed at the end of June and had fine weather the whole time. We had a wonderful day trip out with Matthew and visited the local area, village and school - quite an eye opener. You do have to remember that everything runs on Fiji Time and that the locals are very laid back, but when you are on a relaxing holiday this is not a bad thing. We would, and have, recommend the property to anyone especially those with children as they offer a great kids club. If you go check out the Wicked Walu restaurant - very yummy!
Wasted Money And Spoiled Holidays
Old fashioned, not renovated for ages. Worn-out furniture, brown spots on marble floor in bathroom.
FOOD: Always untasty and unequal. Do not expect Greek Salad of Seafood soup to be cognate! Most of the hot main dishes are burnt while cooking.
Mountains around that causes micro-climat. Very wet and cloudy in the mid-season. During our stay in beg-June all 8 days it was raining. 30 min. by bus towards Nadi - the sun was shining.
One can't expect excellent service from a hotel of such kind. Anyway, local people are very kind and sincere.
Not a 4-star hotel for sure. 2-3-stars.
our stay here was extremely disappointing. the service - (in the restaurants, the reception area, housekeeping, you name it) was terrible. for example, it took about 3 hours to get an extra key to the room (after being given the royal run around and a key to another room) and 1 1/2 hours to get extra towels in our room. try asking for a glass of water at the restaurant! it took several tries before we were successful, and even then not everyone in our table was given one.
we were woken up one saturday morning at 8 am by a staff member who wanted to know whether we had used anything from the mini bar! granted, we had not put a "do not disturb sign" on our door, but still....
the room we stayed in was small and uncomfortable. the lighting was poor, the tub in the bathroom was stained and the ceiling in the bathroom was caving in at the edges. the carpets in the hallway were worn down and smelled musty.
the one highlight of the hotel is one of the gift stores called jack's crafts which sells an impressive array of local handicrafts. the staff there was very knowledgeable and friendly.

Nothing too much today, Just another Gym & Swim followed by a paddle board, although somehow the technique that worked yesterday, no longer did so for me. Anne seems to have mastered it completely. After breakfast we went snorkelling along the coral and the pontoons. We saw tons of fish of all sizes. I even saw a pair of banded sea snakes ( …
... as that seems to be the best way to begin any conversation in Fiji. Sleepily, I’m told that we are indeed heading in the right direction and just another 15 km further on we will come cross Hideaway Resort.
So an hour and a half after leaving Atil and we’re there. Any doubts that we had that we might have done better to have used the hotel shuttle are soon dispelled when we hear from others who did, that it took them more ...
... we hopped on our transfer boat back to the main island. Our bus was waiting for us to take us back to our hotel, just over 2 hours later we finally arrived! I really wasn't feeling good by this point, I ran to the room just in time for my sore tummy (which had been irritating me all day) to expose itself - not pretty!! After about an hour Sina wanted to go to happy hour, so we went & had 1 drink but I still wasn't feeling good so came back to the room, i then went to bed early due it ...
... planned for after lunch. We got a very welcoming surprise when we checked in. The two of us - probably to make up for the night before - got upgraded to a villa! Sick! A TV that swiveled in the wall between the living room and the bedroom, high natural unfinished wood ceilings and a huge, wicked outdoor shower. Why only one day?!?! For the most part everyone relaxed at their own leisure before we all ended up hanging out in the pool drinking beers and cocktails.
... tan to disguise my very badly bitten legs! Damn mossies. (Pretty sure one got in bed with me, demolished my legs). Myself and Tuesday got in, shes pretty hardcore for a 15 year old, Was pretty chilly but not too cold.... hundred of fish once you reach the coral. the fluttered by underneath and I watched Tuesday go for it and dive under. As I swam round, I caught a glimpse of a shark. Was a small one, but still it was a shark. So at that point I went back the boat. ...
