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. It was beating time for the two of us and we could have hoped for more. Serene as well as an atmosphere of hidden but explosive energy was definetly abundant. To say the least,... More

The hotel is very nice and modern, with beautiful and friendly staff and great amenities. It has a great bar, and really good restaurant, pool, and beach. The sunsets and sunrises are stunning in here. However, the water in this beach is not as good as that of the islands. Typically, the day starts early in the morning with a... More

I think this is the hostel most budget tour companies assign you to on your first and last night in Nadi. Face it, it's true. Once you get to Nadi, you want to get out of Nadi asap! The service was quite inconsistent. Some were very sweet and helpful and others couldn't be more useless. On my first day there... More

After stopping to withdraw money from the ATM on our way out of arrivals, we missed the pick up and had to take a taxi (after waiting for some time for the next pick up time). It wasn't too much of a drama. The room we had was in an adjoining building, was comfortable, overlooked the pool and the beach,... More

I stayed at Smugglers in June, for 7 days in the 36 room dorm. While the room wasn't the best, the wonderful staff, atmosphere and location made up for it. I'd like to rave about Joe, the activities and maintenance director at Smuggler's. He was so kind and welcoming. His activities, including basket weaving, tie dying and coconut tasting were... More

Stayed here for 7 nights and enjoyed my time here thoroughly. We ate at the on-site restaurant most nights, the food was priced well and the portion sizes were fantastic. I would recommend booking day trips as the beach front isn't as nice as what the islands have to offer! The shop up the road has all your snack needs... More

2 stars instead of one because the actual place is on the beach. Service 1 star.

We truly regret your stay was not enjoyable emberjoi. The shared rooms are specifically offered for single travellers where there are so many disturbances throughout the day and the odd hours. In the bigger dorms, you must understand the need to maintain separate bed allocation per person and sleeping quarters for ladies and gents for a little more privacy. We... More
