We stayed at the Novotel for one night before going to the islands and a second night before flying back to Australia. I found everything to be great for a short stay. The staff were friendly and professional. The room on our first night was a per a previous post, alternating from sauna to freezer but with a different room on the 2nd night it was perfect. Luck of the draw I guess. The rooms were well appointed and the beds were comfortable and fortunately we had no issues with hot water.
I agree with some previous posts that the scrambled eggs at breakfast were a little less than desirable but on our 2nd breakfast before flying home, we loved the fact that the restaurant had a cook set up on the verandah for sunny side up, over easy or well done. Brought to the table when ready. Oh and if you do stay, please try the fish Linguini. It was absolutely delicious. One of the best meals we had in Fiji.
My only issue with the Novotel is that when we arrived in Nadi and waited 45 minutes for the shuttle to show up we were told that we would have to wait for it to come back again as they would only take the Pacific Blue air crew on the first trip despite being almost empty. No other passengers allowed because of the terms of the contract. It was only an additional 20 minute wait but made us feel undesidered as guests.
Overall the standard of the hotel was good and you can get some really good rates to stay here. Overnight was just fine. But location wise I would be a little bored after a couple of days as there really isn't much nearby.
