Was not sure what to expect when i arrived. The staff are very friendly and the location is right on the beach. Probably not the best of hotels for a long stay but as a short break very good. Plenty of young people here coming and going due to the backpacking accommodation. The hotel rooms are passable, have been in...

Uncomfortable bed. Many bugs in the room even after they came and sprayed the room. Quite slow restaurant service. Food was ok - but the included breakfast was the most basic you can find. Would be an acceptable hotel if the prices were cheaper. The photos are not representative of the place. We felt mislead by the reviews.

Had reservations for a ocean front room. They put someone else in and put us in a back packers place next door! Very bummed out.not even shampoo next door. Needless to say, we made other arrangements. Have stayed at Smugglers many times in the past and were happy, but we will find another place on the beach next time.

We were taken to our room, which was opened! Wonder why? The stench in that room smelt like a dead animal was under the bed. The smell was overbearing, so I went to open the curtain and the window, only to find a construction site within 2 metres from my window, with workmen working on the same level as I...

Bula maryann D Firstly I would like to apologise for the inconvenience that you went through. We have done some investigating and it appears that the smell was from a new chemical that we were using to fumigate the room which we do on a regular basis. We are dealing with the staff that were involved and please be assured...

This is a good place to stay on a budget before a flight from Nadi. We stayed in a double room. The bed was comfy but it was a little run down. Quite a few bugs in the bathroom and a strong damp smell. We stayed 4 nights, this was too long for us because we weren't so keen on...

Bula leah B Thank you for your review and I will certainly look into your comments. The beach is very clean to swim in, there is not a lot to see snorkling from the beach however we do offer free kayak tours and there is a nice reef just a little paddle away. We hope to see you back again...

When they arrived they stopped 3 times to pick a driver, to drop some keys, to go to the supermarket...... As they didn't already make us wait for soooo long!!! When we arrived we ordered...

I stayed here 3 times in the one week in different rooms. My first stay was in the girls dorm. It was clean but there's a generator or something similar outside the window which makes a lot of noise during the night. The showers also don't seem to have hot water!! My second stay was in the 34 bed dorm....

Hotel was o.k for a short stay, rooms were a bit old but otherwise o.k. The traditional Fijian fire dance was great. Pool was nice and the resort is located in Wailoaloa close to the beach. Internet did not work
