Smugglers Cove Beach Resort & Hotel
Ranked #5 of 25 Hotels in Nadi
Reviewed August 1, 2014 via mobile

Myself and my girlfriend booked ourselves in for three nights for our arrival in Fiji and luckily we booked through hostel world which turns out saves you a lot of money as booking direct or through an activity company costs more than twice more! The pick up in the airport was free but turned up very late which was annoying but as we weren't paying any extra for it was not a problem. The staff upon arrival are very friendly and helpful, they get your bags and carry them to your rooms which is a great help! The food from the bar is great but comes with a higher price than other local hostels/accommodation so if you want cheap decent food pop down the road to bamboo which are slightly cheaper but still at a high quality! We booked our island hopping through the connxions office there and the woman was very helpful! We actually booked our last couple of nights back at smugglers again through hostel world because it's just so much cheaper! The only real problem with smugglers was the free breakfast as the selection is really poor and actually if you couldn't eat wheat you'd have to buy a cooked meal!!!! Apart from that I definitely recommend here just book trough hostel world!

Love love love this place. Absolutely enjoyed my 2 day stay at this resort. The waitress, maids, frontdesk and bartender were simply nice. Amazing food. Affordable price and the cocktails are my favorite. Wailoaloa sunset is a must try. Met a beautiful waitress talei during my stay. She made it feel I was at home eventho I was by myself. 10/10. Definitely coming back again. Vinaka Fiji

The hostel has a nice layout and a very nice atmosphere in the evening. We stayed in a 4 bed dorm which was alright, but slightly dingy and the shower wasn't nice at all (but hot!). They have a free breakfast which was really appreciated, especially as we were only paying £7 a night for our bed. Lots of fruit, cereal, bread (sometimes pancakes) and juice. The food in the hostel restaurant is very overpriced for what it is and the wifi is ludicrously priced ! ($25 a day...) If you walk 2 minutes down the beach to the right you'll arrive at Bamboo Backpackers. You can sit on their tables outside and use their free wifi, and they also serve much cheaper food! I'd say if you want the true Fiji experience, stay in Nadi for as little time as possible.

We had a great wedding at Smugglers Cove Resort. Service was fantastic and staff were very helpful. "Food was delicious and decoration was amazing". All our family and friends had an amazing time in the wedding.
We could not have found a better spot then Smugglers Cove to get married.
Jenice and Mark Hinton are fantastic people to deal with.
I would not hesitate to go back and have another function at Smugglers Cove.
Blissful location!

Stayed at the apartment blocks, I think they are the newer addition..clean and had most things you would want. Our room was up a flight of stairs and towards the carpark so limited visibility of the sea but minimum noise from the bar downstairs. Staff were very friendly. Breakfast is basic. Dinner was pretty good. Its right on the beach and has a small swimming pool. Stayed 2 nights and enjoyed the fire dance 1st night and kava session with local songs on the second night.

Smugglers Cove is definitely the place to go! When I got there, the part that surprised me was how friendly they all were! The staff were extremely warm and welcoming and helped wherever they could. They were very fun to be around and made me feel completely comfortable. The staff remembered my name for the entire trip!
they were extremely informative about all the day tours.
I completely enjoyed my stay there and I would love to stay there again.

For a couple of nights this hostel is good. The restaurant area is nice with a good food choice. I stayed in the 30+ dorm and if you want a goods night sleep you won't get it here because many people have to get up early to catch planes, boats, etc. For short stay it does the job, I would not recommend staying here for more than a couple of nights because theres not much to do in the surrounding area.
