“Nice Location for stopover in Nadi”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2006

We stayed at Smugglers Cove during our first night in Nadi whilst waiting for our tour to start. The property is clean and very modern compared to what you usually find in Fiji. Drinks and meals were nice and reasonably priced. Staff is helpful and the hotel has a tour desk to help with any enquiries. Was a very nice location on Nadi Bay (no where near as scenic as the rest of Fiji but good by Nadi standards!). Stayed in a Garden View room, which was comfortable and air conditioned, however very noisy at night. Woke up at times thinking people were in the room when they were next door or in the hall. Nice place to stop over, just make sure your neighbours are quiet!

  • Liked — Nice location, comfortable room, aircon, good food/drink
  • Disliked — Noisy
  • Tips/Secrets — Go for a Ocean View Suite over Garden View
  • Stayed November 2006, traveled as a couple

We stopped in Nadi for 3 days on our way to Australia. We were going to stay in Suva but were advised to stay away from there because of the upcoming trouble. I had to pick my htoel last minuite and picked smugglers as it was close to the airport and had good reviews. Well the room was pretty small for 3 of us but it was very clean. The satalite tv has only 2 chanels but we weren't there to watch tv. The power kept going off and we had to keep switching the breakers. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There is not much of a beach but it was a nice place to take in some sun and relax. 3 days is long enough at this hotel as there is not much around it to see. We did go on a island day trip which was great. The food in the hotel was ok average prices . For the price we paid we couldn't have got a better hotel. so if you are looking for a couple of days to soak up the sun and relax this hotel is great. Oh yes lots of stray dogs on the beach which we got to know and didn't want to leave.

We arrived in the middle of the night and the hotel's driver was there to greet to meet us -a good start. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The oceanfront apartment was very clean but a bit on the small side. Tthe hot water was often non-existent or you had to wait 10-15 minutes to get a trinkle! The beach is black sand and if you go for a walk watch out for stray dogs!!!
If you pay by credit card watch out as you will pay an extra 5% on all bills! The food was good but on the expensive side so go nexr door to the Horizon where its just as good but cheaper.
