Tropic of Capricorn
Ranked #3 of 25 Hotels in Nadi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 8, 2013

We stayed in the dorm room downstairs and upstairs,the upstairs dorm was more spacious. Both rooms were clean and comfortable.

We came back twice whilst in Fiji because we felt like were at home. Mama and the team are great, they cook lovely food, help you with travel plans and generally treat you so well.

It is a quiet hotel, right on the beach with a pool. It it accessible to catch a bus right outside the resort to Nadi town and walking distance to a local supermarket. It also has other resorts next door so you can go for a fews drink or watch the fire show for some entertainment.

I would love to go back!!

We spent a lot of time in Mama’s place and it was fantastic! We had a great private room with a balcony with an ocean view, AC, fridge and a nice big clean bathroom. Room was quiet small but it was clean and had no bedbugs or other annoying creatures!!! Compared with other options around, it was really amazing and for a really good price!!! We can also recommend the dorms. They were spacious and clean with new beds and a nice bathroom.
Mama took great care of us and we felt like at home. She cooked her delicious food (we still miss it!!!) which was not expensive (11-18 F$ per meal) and a lot! If we needed any help or info, we could always ask Mama or Jerry! We also booked our trip to Yasawas with Mama and it was the best choice. Mama recommended the resorts and they were the best as she said! Everything was perfectly organized so we didn’t have to worry about anything.
If you are a backpacker and you need a good cheap place to stay in Fiji, this is the place to go! We met a lot of great people there. We had amazing evenings sitting all together with Mama and others, eating, talking and having great time. It is not just a hostel, it is a great place where everybody is really friendly and will always take care of you!
Although, some people claim Mama is only interested in your money, I strongly disagree with them. Obviously, it is her business and you need to pay for your room and food (It is not a charity). However, Mama gave us a discounts and it was her initiative. Her heart is big and she does not want to rip you off!!!
Mama- thank you so much again for everything! We had an amazing time in Fiji! We will never forget you! We send greetings to Bella, Jerry and all the others! Take care of yourself and use your gavel to keep order in your place!

Vinaka vakalevu!!!

I'm a 27yr old backpacker and had been on the road for 6months before I stayed with Mama. She advised me on the islands to visit (which she got spot on!) and organised everything for me plus she ensured I didn't get ripped off which was reassuring.

On my return from one of the islands I fell sick and she looked after me like your real mum would!

She was simply fantastic, really friendly and it is a place I would recommend to anyone.

Thanks Mama

Do not expect the Hilton or InterCon, this is a family run hotel on the beach. Mama has set up a warm and friendly atmosphere where nothing is too much trouble. She knows everyone by name which was impressive and, as a solo traveller, it was very easy to meet other people here. I had a single room with air conditioning and en suite bathroom for half the price of one next door at Smugglers Cove. The only thing it lacks is wireless, unfortunately. However, I ended up purchasing a Fijian SIM card from Vodafone with a data package which then made it much easier. The beach is right on your doorstep and Mama's is a place to relax and chill out.

I would suggest that it's probably not a place for families but better for solo or couples travelling. To coin the phrase that keeps cropping up, it really is home from home. Thank you Mama for a wonderful stay and to Jerry, Bella and Anna too. I hope your birthday went well and that you liked to gavel!

We stayed in the very affordable poolside room T2. It was so peaceful in there! We got excellent sleep. There is no a/c but the fan was definitely enough to keep us cool at night (although July is supposed to be one of the cooler months in Nadi). Mama's food is excellent and portions are large for the good prices. Mama is also such a sweet character; she really makes you feel like part of her family. You can have as much quiet privacy as you want, but if you enjoy chatting, Mama is always around the front area of the hotel to sit and joke around with. Very good vibe in the hotel. The lady who gives the $40 FJD/hour massages on the beach out front is an excellent masseuse! Best massage deal in the area.

Compared to the adjacent hotels (smugglers cove or aquarius) the price of a beachfront double are less tha 50%. Mama, the owner and the staff are helpfull, competent and very friendly. On our pacific trip we returned 6 times back to Mama!!! It is a perfect place for a few days in Nadi or if you have to wait for your next flight.

If you are looking for the perfect beach and luxury you should go directly to one of the island resorts.

Great spot right on the sandy beach with warm safe water. Mama owns and runs this place with her husband and knows everyone by name and nothing is too much trouble. you can blob out and enjoy the fabulous sunsets or and easy 20 minute walk takes you along the beach and then to the main road where you can grab a 70 cent bus ride into Nadi Town.Even a taxi ride will only cost you F$7. The airport is F$12 away and although the runway is almost over the back fence the sound of planes is not something that spoils the ambiance. We stayed here for three nights in a double room upstairs with a view of the ocean from the balcony and were very happy. We enjoyed Mama's cooking for the first couple of nights and then tried one of the other close restaurants for the last. Nothing is too much trouble for Mama and everything gets done.
