Great Value and clean rooms although they are a little disorganized with overbooking and will sometimes ask you to move even if your booked for 2 plus nights. Great food, pool a plus! Also there are some amazing Thai and Indian food just a 5$ taxi away....worth it. Thanks

I stayed here for 1 night as a layover until my flight out of Fiji the next morning. Thank goodness it was just for a layover and not actual vacation. I’ll start with the lows so I can end on a high. BAD - They require a key deposit of 20FJD (no big deal) but your key has your room... More

We were booked to stay at this place overnight before taking a flight back home. We were well aware that it was a 3 1/2 star accommodation (we had just spent 7 days in a 3 star hotel), All we wanted was a clean place to stay for 24 hours. What we got was adjoining rooms where both rooms were... More

On the beach, good quality accommodation- especially in the 4 bed dorms which have a joined ensuite and air conditioning- a gift from heaven if your travelling between Nov-Feb. They also have free fire shows twice a week in the evening, a nice area to sit and have a drink in the evenings. While its worth having a meal at... More

We did our research and decided to stay here for a couple nights because we got a sale and also the location. Its close to the airport and to the Gold Coast. For what we paid it is safe, clean enough, and decent enough. We got a premium room. There is A/C, local tv with 3 channels, a mini fridge... More

So I only stayed for a night & I didn't stay in the shared dormitories, I got the single room upgrade, which I highly recommend if you can afford it. For a budget place, it was pretty good, cheap accommodation in Fiji is rarely good quality, so of all the places at this price range, it's good. The nightly entertainment... More

The staff were very welcoming and friendly. They provided adequate information (kudos to the staff!). The room was comfortable with AC and TV. The local bus comes to the front of Smugglers which provided easy access to Nadi town. Night entertainment was fun to watch. Continential breakfast can be improved, we found the line to get food long and often... More

As the price was quite high, I had imagined Ocean view Balcony room would be okay considering this 3 and a half starred property but it was not up to my expectation at all. When out in the balcony the woods made sound as if the slabs would break... And very old.. High time they do the renovation of this... More

Great place to stay, amazing and friendly staff and we met a great selection of good people. The food is reasonably priced and the location is optimal as it's 10 mins from the airport, 15 mins from Nadi town and close to places of interest like the Sleeping Giant and the Mud Baths. The hotel is clean and the whole... More
