Stayed here as part of a trip my girlfriend won. The hotel and staff were lovely, the pools were nice, The room was huge and quite tidy, and the food was good. The only issue I had was nothing to do with the hotel or staff, as we didn't actually make the booking, we didn't realise that lautoka is not... More

Very clean rooms and the bathroom overlooks the water! Very cool! The staff are very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is nice overlooking the beach and food is ok could have more of a selection. The spa was good and well priced. Very close to shopping and restaurants

This is very centrally located with, as its name suggests, a prime waterfront location. The rooms are clean, spacious, well appointed and well serviced. The staff are friendly and the food is great. Nice pool & bar area.

My daughter and I stayed here for 6 nights recently and this was an easy intro to our 3 week FIJI tour. The tour desk lady was lovely and recommended a fabulous schooner day trip. All staff were lovely and my daughter particularly enjoyed the beautiful pool!!

We stayed for three nights while I was working nearby. We were pleasantly surprised to find that the negative reviews were not our experience at all!! We stayed in one of the executive rooms and found it to be very clean and comfortable. The food was excellent and the coffee was as good as we have had anywhere. Service was... More

The place is overrun with cockroaches. Little ones crawling everywhere - in the toilet pan, in the bathroom area, on the floor, in the tea making area and even around the beds. Had to make sure all the bags were kept shut. We kept our toothbrushes in the fridge to keep them from cockroaches and guess what - there was... More

Staff are very helpful however they make too much noise while doing their duties around guest rooms. Lacked attention to detail in the rooms, hair dryer holder was broken, spoon to make tea was dirty etc.

We stayed in an upstairs king room with views overlooking the sea and the new pool area. The best thing about this hotel is its very friendly, fun loving and keen to help you staff. I think it would be hard to not enjoy your stay at the Waterfront Hotel. The room was spacious and modern with newish bedding, towels... More

The hotel feels like an old motel. The exception: the rooms are ok, but not great and not spotless. The pool area is quite nice though. It's ok if you want to save money or just spend a night. The promenade in front of the hotel is quite nice, but not many good places around to eat.
