The hotel is right on the beach with a large restaurant overlooking the sea. We stayed in a standard double room which was spacious and perfect for sorting ourselves out after a trip the the Yasawas and going to the airport the next morning. Lovely warm showers and friendly - only annoyance is the $100 cash deposit for the room... More

The hotel was good, staff and guests were extremely friendly, it is a little bit expensive for food and drink but the restaurant and bar area were clean and looked nice. Food was good but not really worth the money. Unfortunately when we arrived we were made to wait up to an hour for our room as it wasn't ready... More

I had the pleasure of staying at Smugglers Cove for my recent holiday and I'm so glad I chose to stay at this resort. The rooms were perfect and the food was absolutely delicious - you must try the lobster bisque! Situated right on the beach, there were many activities to keep you busy during the day, then watch the... More

Smugglers Cove is in Wailoloa which is a 500m beachfront on the outskirts of Nadi, and where all the backpackers are kept. This backpacker-land is made up of six different hostels, though only one is independent the rest is run as a monopoly. Most people use this area as a base to then do island trips. I booked on Hostelworld... More

We appreciate your review Alice K of our product following your stay. There's a need for control measures to be highlighted in the big pirates dorm so other guests are not disturbed. This is our most affordable rate however we have other smaller custom made dorms like 4-beds, girls only shared room, etc, for more privacy and comfort. All dorms... More

The dorm rooms, absolutely revolting. Drinks all over the floor, stunk of cigarettes, VILE! A really classy French male and who ever he picked up deemed it appropriate to engage in sexual intercourse in the DORM room! Once again VILE. Now let's get to the worst part.

Amazingly Aastoundingly Awesome. This place really is a hidden hem. I was so impressed by the friendly atmosphere and casual decor and functionality of the resort.
