Stayed for 5 days for a series of business meetings. The location is quiet and a 10 minute taxi ride from the bustle of Nadi town and about 20 minutes from Port Denarau. There's not much shopping or dining within walking distance and the cabs charge extra for hotel pickup (quoted fares to Nadi Town were FJD 13 and to Port Denarau FJD 30). There is a free hotel shuttle to/from Nadi Airport.
Stayed in an Executive room that was well maintained and clean. I found the bed to be a little softer than I prefer. There was an ample sized desk, sitting area with coffee table, electric kettle for boiling water and instant coffee/tea in the room along with a refrigerator. Combination room safe in the closet. AC worked well.
Ate breakfast and lunch there most days. Full breakfast seemed a little over-priced for the quality and variety of food (FJD 30), but there was very good fresh fruit. The breakfast and lunch menus did not vary much at all. Buffet lunch was less impressive than breakfast. I found the rice at lunch to be consistently soggy and the entrees not very flavorful.
Internet service seemed very expensive with a FJD 40 daily rate or 100 for 3 days. Prices for food/drinks at the hotel cafe were similarly higher than I expected.
For dinner, I would highly recommend the trip to Port Denarau instead of to Nadi town unless you're budget is very restrictive. There is a greater variety of interesting restaurants open in the evenings in Port Denarau (we ate at Indigo for Indian food twice and had very reasonably priced [FJD10-16 per main dish] and very good meals both times). Saffron, the very good Indian restaurant in Nadi was closed the night we tried to go there.
Overall, I would stay here again if on business or on a short Nadi Airport stopover. Some of the prices seemed higher than I would have expected. For future fun trips I might be inclined to try some of the newer hotels on Denarau or, of course, on the nearby island resorts.
