We stayed at the Outrigger in Fiji for 10 days in mid December with our 4 children aged 3, 6, 8 and 11 with the expectation of relaxation, kids club, adult only time and family time and ticked all boxes.
The resort is spacious, green and well maintained. The staff are super friendly and some became welcome faces to see each day (our butler Joe and William at the bar who joked with the kids on a daily basis). The rooms were clean and had all basic facilities and the resort had some fantastic entertainment and activities.
The kids club was great and had some 'away from home' activities such as frog chasing, coconut husking, fishing, and lai making but my 11yr old felt he was a bit too old for it and there weren't many kids his age though he did love the coconut husking/eating and the fishing.
The pool has areas for all ages, our 3yr old was safe in the little kids part (with us of course) whilst our older kids were happy in the bigger part of the pool where they made friends to hang out with.
The restaurants were very nice, good quality food and plentiful. The buffet breakfast is great with plenty of options in food, the restaurant around the pool is also very nice and delivers around the pool within certain daytime hours and the sundowner restaurant overlooking the ocean is very romantic and great restaurant quality food. Cocktails are a plenty and the mojito's well worth sampling!
The adults only pool is a fantastic way to kill an afternoon when the kids are in kids club, a swim up bar is a great novelety.
They butler service with daily canapes, liqures and champagne and beer is a wonderful way to end a day with all the kids in bed.
I cant fault much but have a couple of tips - firstly, bring plenty of sunblock. The sunblock at the general store costs $25 per tube!!! Also bring a small snap lock bag of laundry detergent. To do a load of washing and drying costs $8 then you have to buy the detergent on top. We didn't buy the full pre-paid meals for the adults as we were so full after buffet breakfast and then ate the kids lunch left overs so personally, I think its a waste of $$ to prepay 3 meals a day.
All in all though, a fantastic family holiday with enough relaxing, enough action and plenty to do in the resort.
