“Nice hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2011

Only stayed here for one night after a trip to the yasawas and before we flew to nz. Arrived quite late but check in was swift. Had a double ensuite room right next to reception but we had no trouble with noise. Room was very spacious with large bed, wardrobe, dresser and side tables. All very clean - bathroom was modern and shower good. Had AC. Ate a meal at the hotel restaurant - food was delicious and nice outdoor (but covered) dining area. Good vibe and nice place to chat and meet people. Pool looked nice but didn't get a chance to try it. Wish we could have stayed more than the one night!

We have stayed at bluewater lodge on my last day in Fiji, it is just located 5 mins to the office of Turtle airways, not too far away from the Nadi downtown (10d taxi fees). We stayed in Room 2 which is an ensuite with a bathroom included. The room is not large but spacious enough, one of the good thing is the air-condition espeicailly for those who just came back from the Yasawas can finally have a good night. Bed is good, clean and confortable. Breakfast is a little bit simple, but yeah that's the money you paid for.
One issue is as we are in room 2, there are always the sounds of door opening and closing just outside, I cannot tell which door it is because of I'm too lazy, but I guess it might be the bathroom for people living upstairs?
Also, despite of the free wifi provided, it is hardly usable as the speed is too slow. First I thought it is because of too many people are accessing at the same time, but then I tried in 5 am, still killing slow. So, for those of you who are looking for good connection, it may not be a good choice.
Overall, it is a very good lodge and good for those budget travellers or just one night stay.

We stayed here 12 months ago & thought it was great, however it has gone downhill over the last year. We stayed for a night either side of visiting the islands, and on both occasions cleanliness was a significant issue.

The first night our bed sheets were stained with blood, and the second night they also had various stains. The driver who was booked to pick us up from the airport didn't show up & there was no way to contact them, the good thing was the taxi was cheaper than the transfer. When he dropped us back at the airport the next morning he told us how he'd been drinking with the staff the night before, before he dropped them home, so we were quite happy he didn't show up.

The food was fine without being anything special, but was better then anything in Nadi town.

Overall this is a convenient place for staying for a night in transit, but after the cleanliness issues this time we will go elsewhere next time

We cannot recommend BlueWater highly enough to you! It has everything you would need as a traveller to Fiji and is a great place to use as a base. Arriving we knew very little about what Fiji had to offer but the owner went out of his way to arrange an experience of a life time for us. We had a double room with an en suite, and it was lovely!The staff are super friendly and the food really is outstanding! Very clean, you will not be disappointed! The absolute hands down best value for money place we have ever stayed! Run by really honest people who love Fiji and are delighted to help you have a 5* experience of the beautiful country!

Tonight we came to this hotel about 3 o'click - they did not pick up us in airport, hotel was closed, we can not call nobody, have to stay about 30 min in the night and shout - Hello, somebody - open your gate, we had booking in your place. In some min 3 very drunk man opened door for us, our room was not prepare for us, they were drunk and agressiva and when I told that I need sleep tonight, but tomorrow I dont want to stay here - one drunk man began to shout - you can go out now!!
We have to change this bad hotel for another early morning!! NEVER GO THERE!

I stayed with my 15 year old daughter in the ensuite room downstairs. Room was tidy and ensuite was small but fine. Staff are absolutely fantastic! Remember your name, and are just so helpful. We had dinner that night at the lodge and the food was fantastic, although for my daughter who is more of a burger type person, there wasn't a lot to select from but she ate up her chicken and enjoyed it. I will recommend this place for quiet backpackers, friends etc travelling. It is nice and quiet but there are some other places close by if you want to party etc. It was ideal for myself and Laura though as we had early starts and had good sleeps.

Really nice place, feels very secure as it is gated! Only downside is that in the 4 bed dorm, the bed bunks are quite low, so watch your head in the morning! Apart from that, our stay here was really nice and also it kept away from Smugglers which means no noise!
