Fiji Gateway Hotel
Ranked #1 of 25 Hotels in Nadi
Reviewed September 11, 2013

We booked one of the nicer suite rooms for a decent price, and the room turned out to be fabulous for the type hotel it is. The room had a separate lounge area and a small bar area; the bathroom was spacious with a spa bath. Everything was well presented with lots of fresh flowers placed around the room.

The food at the restaurant was pretty decent, my partner had a great pork dish for dinner and the kokoda entree was also delicious. The pool was very big and seemed well-maintained. There wasn't much else to do but the hotel is located across from the airport after all, so it's more for convenience.

The only down point was that the staff, although polite, seemed a bit distant and disinterested.

We arrived in the evening so the Gateway was the closest to the airport. Rooms and public areas were all clean and tidy. The pool with the slide was the best cause the kids just loved it. The pool and tennis court was fantastic since there isn't anything to do close to the hotel. Food and service was good. Sugar cane season can be quite noisy with the train horn constantly going off. Overall it's a very convenient place to stay if you have an early flight out or late flight in. I've been staying at the Gateway for the last 25 yrs and it is still the best place for short stays.

We were after a clean comfortable stay close to the airport as we had an early morning check in. Raffles provided this and as well we had a refreshing swim - but did have to wait for the loungers to be vacated (more would be good) - and a pleasant filling dinner served by friendly and competent staff. We would definitely stay again if we need an overnight stay in Nadi.

Room Tip: It was nice to have a room overlooking the pool and the airport - possibly executive rooms only.

Was there for 1 night and found the check in staff are efficient but not warm or friendly. The deluxe room is really spacious and nice. Room 208 has a garden view but it was ok. Found the lady and guy running the bar more pleasant and genuinely hospital compared to the all the staff overall. Room has everything you need but unfortunately no free wi-fi. Lady manning the breakfast restaurant counter as well as the gift shop awas hostile and need some training on how to be polite to all guests not just to Caucasians. Would recommend this place if you have a flight to catch and just want to chill out.

Room Tip: If you want cheaper meal, walk across (about 5-7 minutes) to the airport where they have hot meals...

Stayed here several times over the past few years , and always found it supremely friendly . Since it's right by the Nadi Airport ( but no problems with aircraft noise ) it's ideal for catching an early morning flight out , or for a 2-3 night stay . Rooms are very clean , and quite adequately comfortable ( but limited TV channels ) , restaurant setting very pleasant ( but menu choices somewhat limited , particularly the Continental Breakfast Buffet ) . A little distance from Nadi town , but Reception will cheerfully arrange a taxi for you .... in fact , to us , cheerful friendly efficient service is one of the major attractions of this hotel . The main pool is good , particularly for kids . Overall , very good value for money , and we'll certainly be using this hotel again on future trips to Fiji .

Room Tip: Deluxe Rooms seem best value . If you don't want to use the pool much , take a ground floor room...

Had to stay overnight on the way to our final destination. The hotel was quite ok for one night - not fancy but clean and quiet. The location was very convenient to the airport, accomodation was satisfactory, pool was very nice. Food was expensive.
