Reviewed October 24, 2013

It's hotel is rated as 4 star, but it most definitely is not. the room we were in was tired, old bathroom, patio door wouldn't lock properly, not very clean. Bed was comfortable though. Food was ordinary. Would be ok as a stopover, but nothing really around it and reasonably far from Denarau and Nadi township. very close to airport.

So boring (and we are in our 50's!). Room was nice and the size, bathroom and furnishings were good. No shower cap or body lotion, 1 face cloth for 2 people. One day they forgot the bathmat, one day they took the TV remote to "service" it (even tho it was working fine) and didn't replace it. Room not serviced til 3:30pm each day.
The whole hotel (apart from our room) was run down. You have to collect pool towels from reception. Was told they'd deliver it to me and it never arrived poolside. Food was quite expensive and very average. My husband ordered an rib-eye steak one night and it was so tough he sent it back. To be fair the second one was tender. The pool is small and very boring. Gardens need a revamp and some TLC.

Room Tip: No much of a view, so you are probably better with a ground floor room. At least your sliding door w...

WE were very sceptical about staying here for a night, due to the reviews on trip advisor. However, we were very happy with our stay. The rooms were very clean & tidy, we had a great view from our balcony and the staff are more than helpful.

We ate at the restaurant for dinner & breakfast, and it was beautiful. The gym is a decent size, with just the basics available. And the golf course is quite large, for the golf lovers. The pool is rather small for a resort, but A OK. Reception staff were more than helpful, and the lady that has market stall within hotel was lovely and very accommodating. The gift shop was great, as was the clothing store.

We walked down to the shopping centre from resort, which took 5 minutes. Very handy for all your grocery needs.

Our only negative thing to be said, was they use cream instead of milk for tea & coffees, so we had no milk in our room.

Room Tip: Try and get a room closer to the actual resort reception. As they are spread out.

Stayed at the property for 1 night before going onto an organised study tour of Fiji.

I wanted somewhere close to the airport, with good amenities and clean. Novotel delivered.

From the moment I got off the plane and found (easily) Mo the Shuttle driver I felt relaxed. The staff were wonderful throughout my short stay.

Rooms were clean and tidy with all amenities working. Food and drink was reasonably priced - otherwise the front desk offer good local suggestions if your are looking to go out.

The Tour desk at the resort was very efficient and helpful.

For a stopover hotel this was terrific. Just book early - as rates can get high.

Staff friendly and helpful. Korean air crew stay here. Pool is quite nice. View from the room excellent across the golf course -felt as if we were on safari! Very close to airport. Only food I ate here was breakfast buffet which was OK. Good hotel if you are in transit through Nadi or here on business. Not sure why you would stay here otherwise. I'll happily stay here again when in transit.
