Although the first view of the hotel may seem a little dowdy, once you have checked in, settled in your room and explored a while you can appreciate this hotel for what it is, an efficient, comfortable, very well located and, most of all friendly budget hotel that lacks for nothing that a much more hotel may offer.

Great review! Thank you for your comments. We are working on the "dowdy" appearance you mentioned when you first viewed the hotel, which has to do simply with painting and other improvements on the front of the building. These are in process. But we're very happy that you enjoyed your room, our great location and the friendliness of our staff.... More

As we expected the rooms were a wee bit basic but adequate however this was more than made up for by the extremely friendly staff ( especially Joe) and the beach location. Would not recommend for a final destination however great for an in transit stop.

The hotel location was very good as is right on the beach. The staff were really helpful too, warm and welcoming. We did find the rooms very basic and a little " worn " though the aircon kept us cool and we slept ok. All in all you get what you pay for and it was a hotel at a... More

Aquarius is great value for money and the perfect location on Wailoaloa Beach. I had an ocean view room with a large balcony overlooking the pool and beach it was perfect and not too expensive, was still cheaper than a basic room at one of the bigger hostels on Wailoaloa Beach. The staff at Aquarius are amazing, they all know... More

We stayed here overnight because of an early flight . Very pleasant management, clean,basic accommodation but noisy on the road. Good beach access, great live music and reasonable food. Did not need 2.5 hours to get to airport and check in at 5.30in the morning.

We booked here for our last night in Fiji as it had easy transport to the airport. I wish we'd spent longer as it was so good. We were in a 6 bed dorm which was clean and comfortable. The food was excellent and the service was the best we'd had in Nadi. There are a lot of backpacker oriented... More

Aquarius was a fabulous introduction to Fiji and set the scene for an awesome holiday. Very convenient to the airport, you are collected from the airport and delivered to the most delightful little resort and friendly staff.

We went to visit our son (Jamesa) who has been a volunteer teacher in Fiji for three months all the way from Melbourne. What an unforgettable experience and stay we had at Aquarius. The atmosphere is one of being on holiday from the moment you walk in. We were treated like royalty and did not want to leave at all.... More

Right size place and demographic. Feel lucky to have found this spot on the beach within easy access to Nadi, the airport or Denaru, for moving on to other adventures.
