Novotel Nadi
Ranked #9 of 25 Hotels in Nadi
Reviewed May 25, 2013

The Novotel was a great place to stay before flying out of Fiji as it is close to the international air port and Nadi.
The rooms are a basic hotel room - neat and tidy and comfortable for a short stay, they were clean and the beds enabled a good nights sleep.
The meals impressed me as they were well presented and very enjoyable (althought limited in meal choices) and also at very reasonable prices.
I was very impressed with the range of activities that the hotel provided - 9 hole gole course, driving range, pool, eight ball, table tennis, gym, volley ball, soccer and net ball.
The hotel has a choice of three shops in the complex that offer a range of goods with prices that compare with Nadi.
Overall the staff are very friendly and helpfull and I would definetly stay here again when in Fiji

Look forward to having you with us on your next trip ro Fiji.

On returning home after holidaying in the islands we opted for our last night to stay at the Novotel, mainly due to the close proximity to the airport and the free shuttle provided.

We checked in late in the afternoon with a friendly welcome and our luggage delivered to our rooms straight away.

We were surprised when we walked to our rooms that the hotel had placed us so far away from reception when we had already booked our 6am shuttle with them and the hotel didnt appear to be that busy. We assumed that we would be placed closer due to our early checkout.

The rooms were mostly clean, although the bathroom could have had a bit more attention and we had to remove some roaches that came to greet us as well.

We enjoyed the pool after a hot day traveling and the evening meal and cocktails were good.

I would stay at the Novotel again, but would insist on a closer room if we were checking out early.

Thank you for the comments they are most appreciated, and yes the changes have been significant. You are quite correct the old girl (tree at the pool) stood firm against the cyclone, and looks as magnificant as ever.

My new bride and myself only stayed here because of a flight delay and couldn't reach our resort. The hotel was clean enough and the desk staff pleasant. The rooms had a big bathroom and good water pressure in the shower.

We always spend our last night at Novatel when in Fiji as it is close to the airport and they have a free transfer which is great. The only complaint i had this time we were on a very early morning flight and we were placed in the furtherest rooms from reception, the hotel was not that busy so this amazed me i did talk to the check in but he did not seem to understand my issue. The meals are of excellent quality (we only had dinner),though a bit pricey. We did notice that they still are working on fixing all the damage done by the last cyclone,

When planning our month long trip our first port of call was the Novotel Nadi. We stayed for 2 nights and found the hotel met our needs. Travelling with 3 children (aged 13 months, 4 and 7 years) and my mother in law who is in her late 70's and with ailments it was suitable for the short stay. It only has a pool to entertain the kids so a short stay was good, and the amenities inside the room were sufficient. The hotel was still undergoing work recovering from it's last cyclone and we weren't affected at all by the noise. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food could do with some improvement in terms of serving it whilst it's hot and the beauty spa whilst the massage was great and the staff person friendly there was no ambience to the spa in that there was no soothing music that you normally get and when I laid face down and put my head into the hole there was dirt on the floor which obviously hadn't been swept properly. It didn't ruin the experience but having had a number of massages the music and cleanliness of a spa makes the treatment all that better. This is the only criticism I have otherwise it's a great place for short stays.

I have been using this hotel for years,it has always been good for one or two nights as it's next to the airport. However, this time it looked a bit tired and I saw a couple roaches in my room. They have eliminated the egg station at the buffet breakfast.
