We were a travel party of 5 (mum, dad, and 3 children ages = 5,4,1) and required an overnight stopover between our return from the Yasawa Islands to our international departing flight the next day. Raffles Gateway suited us perfectly. I made the booking online direct (AUD106) and it was smooth and quick transaction. Very professional. We checked into the hotel about 7pm - quick and friendly checkin and I cheekily asked for an upgrade (and got it !! to an executive room – which is what we really did need space wise) – well worth asking for an upgrade though. Dinner at the restaurant was just fine (dinner is served until 10pm and room service is available 24hours). In fact dinner nicer that I expected it would be. The room was clean and comfortable. Whilst the hotel itself would be fairly old and I daresay never renovated since it was originally built, I must comment on the cleanliness of the rooms, foyer and gardens. Staff were friendly and quick to respond to any queries (eg meals came quickly, checkin/checkout quick, porters quick, housekeeping quick etc). I guess they are mindful of people catching flights and so there is less of that “Fiji Time” pace to things and much more responsive. Continental breakfast was fairly basic and not stimulating at all but hot meals can be ordered separately. The pool (with a slide) is a highlight for dwindling those hours away. Also has a tennis court. The hotel itself is located about 25-30mins from Nadi town. I think a taxi costs around FJD20 ? The hotel offers a free shuttle service to the airport at any time of the day you want. (ie. you don’t need to wait every half hour)….the airport is literally across the road and you can see your plane on the tarmac. Considering how close you are to the airport, noise is NOT an issue…for some reason you don’t seem to hear the planes? Would definitely recommend as a great stop over hotel and couldn’t really find any faults. Be mindful it is not a place you would spend your entire fiji holiday in but for a transit stop over it is just perfect.
