After flying for 12 hours from North America, we had a 17 hour layover in Fiji and were looking for a nice relaxing place to enjoy the scenery before flying on to Australia. We were nervous about leaving Nadi, so we booked at Smugglers. The reception was very confused by our reservation so I ended up having to pay for it again (which I had to clear up a month later when we got home) and the breakfast was not very welcoming. The water levels must have been high because there was no beach and so we ended up looking for a tour to do.
The tour desk was very helpful and booked us with a private driver to take us to the same places as the tour would have (for 1/4 of the cost). The massage we received from the spa at Smugglers when we returned was high intensity, but our beds were comfortable and we enjoyed a short nap. Cocktail hour was reasonably priced and the shrimp were HUGE in the shrimp cocktail we ordered!
I will not be staying here again, but met up with people at cocktail hour that have been coming here for years.
