I visited in April 2014 for the second time. I absolutely love this place because there is always something to do. The staff are friendly and professional, and they engage the customers and make sure they are having a great time. The prices are cheap and service is excellent, highly recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms near the pool are the best option, however, the dorm is also great price and across from the m...

Travellers beach is a lovely little beach resort on a budget. The pool and the bar are the best for relaxing right on the beach. The cafe restaurant is cheap and delicious. Try ika vaka lolo. It is the village recipe mmm. Evenings are fun with the local kava and lots of local musicians singing the island songs. But the best thing is especially the wonderful caring happy staff! They make travellers beach unforgettable. Highly recommend for budget travellers.

It was our first night in Fiji and after a long flight we were looking forward to our own room to relax in. After we had checked in we were taken to a room where already someone else was staying in so we had to relocate and were taken to a terrible building (surrounded by mud and old furniture) across the road! Once we got there I was really speechless about the condition of that room, everything was filthy, especially the bathroom where we found used toilet paper on the floor, used towels and soaps plus a sink full of hair!! We could hardly sleep that night since the toilet was flushing all the time and we were woken up in the morning because of another noise. A RAT was scratching at the bathroom door, trying to get into the bedroom!!!! It had bitten the toilet paper, which was lying around, into 1000 pieces and there were also some wooden pieces on the floor!! I have never experienced something that disgusting! When we told the management about our awful night and morning, they paid for our breakfast and seemed to be sorry. Nevertheless, I cannot understand at all how you can run a business like that! Stay away from that place if you like any kind of comfort!

Bula Vinaka,

we wish to offer our humble apologies. After a full investigation of your review, we have determined that a rare and unfortunate series of events has resulted in your less-than-wonderful stay. We now understand that when our front desk trainee staff member was faced with an unusual situation, he made a very bad decision to pop you into a room that we do not use for our Travellers Beach guests. This room was also not prepared and house-kept, and for this we are sincerely sorry. Had we been aware of this terrible error of judgement, and had these issues been brought to our management's attention at the time, we would have swiftly sorted out the problem and popped you into the right room. Our Management have now reassigned this trainee and will ensure that this situation can not happen ever again.

Our staff is a young and lively team of locals with a warm and vibrant island-style hospitality. Although we are not perfect, we always try to care for our guests in the best way possible. We highly recommend our Resort for travellers who are seeking a budget room and a simple, fun, friendly and atmospheric experience.

Cheers and thanks. Apologies again and wish you happy travels,

The Travellers Beach Team

Our stay here was alright - booked in for two nights and initially loved it. the guys who worked there were rolling around on skateboards or playing guitar and it seemed very "islandy" with all hammocks outside etc. On closer inspection, our room was pretty gross, with all these strange mis matched rough sheets, doors that *just about* locked - it all felt a bit unsafe. I'm not a naturally nervous person but didn't feel that safe there at night particularly when there was a blackout while we were in our rooms. There were a few dodgy characters knocking around and while we were ok, i did notice a young English girl being robbed by a young Fijian guy she had been drinking with prior to that, when she went to the loo. Think the young girls staying here probably too trusting, it seems a bit of a target spot for local Fijian guys to take advantage of that kind of thing and I'm guessing the bar staff are turning a blind eye. The pool was fairly clean, however the restaurant opened and closed at such funny times - or else ran out of food - that we never actually tried it. we spent most of our time eating in Smugglers Cove - far nicer- and ended up booking in there for the remainder of our holiday. The staff were alright, we made our own fun but I suppose ultimately we were glad to check out. The hotel is right on the beach but like that there are nicer places 30m away.

Bula vinaka,

thanks you for the candid review. We appreciate your feedback and will look to improve our guest experience accordingly. Since your stay in early January, we have undertaken simple upgrades for each of our guest rooms and we warmly invite you to return and enjoy the new style. We have also launched new security initiatives and consider the safety and security of our guests with paramount importance.

As you mention, we also highly recommend Smugglers Cove for guests wishing for a proper hotel style experience with all the amenities. For those seeking a fun, friendly, atmospheric Fijian style hospitality, we recommend choosing Travellers Beach..

Vinaka and happy travels,

the team @ Travellers Beach

Bamboo Travellers has an amazing atmosphere where the staff make you feel at home. Its a great place to start and end your Fiji trip. The front desk staff are very helpful with helping plan your time in Fiji, they will make your bookings for island hopping as well as island day trips. The local bus also stops out front of the hostel so its easy and cheap to get into the town to explore and go shopping or transfer buses to get to other places on the main island. There is also plenty of things to do around the hostel with the staff hosting free activities throughout the day. In the evening there are always kava ceremonies that are free for everyone to join and are a great way to meet the other travellers at the hostel and listen to the Bamboo boys sing songs and play guitar. The price of this hostel is unbeatable and the atmosphere will make you never want to leave!

We have stayed at this resort for several years when it was under the original management. We continued to stay there after it was sold and up until the last owner made some terrible changes. The staff is not friendly and no longer knows what is going on! We called approximately three weeks in advance to make a reservation for two rooms with air conditioning. It was confirmed at the time of the call. HOWEVER, when we arrived, no one could find our reservation. The person who took our reservation was on break and they would not go get them. They said the only room available had a fan (our reservation was for two rooms with air conditioning!). While my partner was trying to sort it out, I was looking around and noticed the place was no longer kept clean and the people staying there looked unsavory, to say the least. The staff no longer wore neat uniforms and did not take any pride in their appearance or the appearance of the resort. It has also changed it's name, among other things. I would not advise any one to stay at this resort. The "staff" we tried to talk too acted like it was our problem and mad no effort to even try to accommodate our requests. The refused to even call the manager in to talk to us.

Room Tip: Best tip I can give anyone is to go back out toward the main road and stop at the Nadi Bay Resort, o...

Bula vinaka,

thanks for the feedback. As of 6 months ago, Travellers is under new management. Unfortunately your stay coincided with our transition period and thus we cordially apologise that your stay was not up to your expectation. Since your stay, the new Travellers team have got the property all sorted out and things are now going great. We have now developed a wonderful new management, a fresh team of helpful and friendly staff, and our reservations are all under control. In addition, the property has had a steady renovation over the last 6 month since your stay and we warmly invite you to return and see the surprising transformation. The property is now cleaner, tidier and more radiant :)

Also, we agree with you that Nadi Bay Resort is great place. For travellers who wish to stay in a more upmarket room for a few extra $$$, we highly recommend this option. For those seeking a fun, friendly, simple Fiji style place with basic, budget accommodation, we highly recommend staying with us ;)

Cheers and best wishes,

The Travellers Team

I stayed at Bamboo travellers both on my way through Fiji and on my stay back because I liked it so much. This is a very basic backpacker hostel (so don't have expectations of a "resort") but the price is unbeatable, it is clean enough, and the atmosphere is incredibly welcoming. It is situated right on the beach which isn't postcard beautiful but about as nice as it gets in Nadi. The staff is very helpful with booking and will pick you up at the airport; most people are only in Nadi to transfer for island hopping anyways. Kava circles every night with the local staff playing guitar; the music is pleasant but make sure you bring earplugs if you want to go to bed early.
