Stayed here for 3 nights with my boyfriend and we agreed that that was long enough. The hotel is great for being in the hustle and bustle of Nadi on a budget but nothing about it really stood out and the food was pretty average. Free breakfast though if you get there early enough. On our last night one of... More

Bula Ellie T Thank you for reviewing your recent stay with us. Our breakfast is replenished regularly between 6.30am and 9.30am I am unsure why you wouldn't have gotten anything to eat. Our dinner menu is also very extensive and we try our best to have something for everyone with a little flare at affordable prices. I will certainly look... More

I visited Smugglers Cove in July 2015 with a friend. We stayed in a twin room with private bathroom, which was basic but very clean and had everything we needed. Bathroom came with shower gels/shampoo/soap, clean towels provided, shower was good and room serviced daily. Our room had a single bed and a set of bunk beds, beds were comfortable... More

A great hostel. Families around, backpackers around and lots to do. The beach wasn't the nicest but still nice enough to sunbathe. The food was great, rooms were nice and air conditioned. 16 bed dorm seemed too much but it actually worked well because the rooms are so big. The staff really helpful. Sitiven went above and beyond to help... More

Bula Jessica F Thank you for reviewing your stay with us at Smugglers Cove, so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay. The beach is actually one of the best on the mainland, but of course you must visit the islands where the sand is white and the water blue. Hope to see you back one day. Kind regards... More

Rooms were very basic. Bathroom spacious but desperately in need of a do-up. But the staff were fantastic and the food great. Awesome entertainment. We happened to be there when they did the Fiji night with fire dancing etc. Very relaxing sitting out in front of the restaurant/bar. Great position on the beachfront. Very relaxing sitting outside having breakfast.

Room was adequate... however bathroom was disgusting. It actually smelt like petrol so we had to keep the door closed as the fumes were giving us headaches. I did tell the staff, two of which came up and investigated, they just told me to keep the door shut and it was pesticide to kill bugs. Which were still running around... More

We didn't know what to expect but considering where we were staying this was a pleasant surprise. Although this was a mixed backpacking hotel the Young tourists from around the globe where friendly and not loud and boisterous. Food was good staff very friendly. So if you don't want five star snobby luxury this place on the beach is a... More

Our stay was great and the room was nice too, however we asked for a double bed but instead we got 2 single beds joint together, which was really uncomfortable to sleep on. Staff were friendly and helpful too.

Bula naina662 Thank you for your review of your stay at Smugglers Cove. I assume that your bed was one of our King/twins as we don't put single beds together to create a double. I will follow this up with housekeeping to ensure all mattresses are securely jointed properly to ensure this does not happen in the future. Glad that... More
