hey man, i went to Fiji for schoolies 2008. it depends if your talking about going to islands off Fiji or not, cuz obviously the price is going to differ significantly. i stayed at the 'Hideaway Resort' - south of sigatoka. there are a few surf spots on the main island. i surfed sigatoka river; which was an longer fun right hander (beginner wave), Hideaway; which was a consistent 3-4ft wave (intermediate surfers) i surfed here the most as it was most accessible..

only  thing is its 200-300m paddle through the channel and lagoon. for the first couple of surfs i wore booties but the reef isnt all that sharp there. On the right of the channel there is a good right hander, and to the left of the channel and further down the beach there is a left hander but it is shallower there. can only surf hideaway 2-3 hours either side of high tide. another spot i recommend is Frigates! its an epis left hander (one of the most consistant-bar cloudbreak on the island).

I would rate Frigates as experts only. Definitely don't take your son out there if you are beginners. Anyways you'll see what i mean if its big-plenty of blokes don't leave the boat-no shame in that -know your limitations. Its a big mean wave - way out to sea.
