My stay started alright with pleasant staff at reception, but then ran downhill rapidly. An unpleasant two nights with several families of cockroaches sharing my room. Meanwhile the air conditioning barely blew any cold air (probably so the cockroaches didn't get cold!) - it was set at 16C when I arrived and the room probably never went below 25C, about 2C less than outside. Also the flat screen TV may as well not have been there. The reception was abysmal and the selection of channels was terrible.
But the worst of all was the continental breakfast which consisted of some fruit from which I managed to pick up food poisoning, probably a water borne bug. Yes you guessed it, the dreaded Nadi version of Delhi belly! Just as well it was my first breakfast otherwise I would have been on the plane home when things erupted about 4.30pm that afternoon.
Being in a tender state that evening I was very mindful to choose carefully from the restaurant menu for something to eat. I thought the seafood chowder would be as filling as I could manage. It was the worst chowder I have ever had the misfortune to have served to me. It was a totally flavourless medium viscosity potato soup with a token couple of small bits of mussel thrown in. By adding salt and pepper I was able to improve it to taste salty and peppery!
All in all not a happy experience that I will never repeat. My advice, stay elsewhere.
