We spent 1 night here at the end of our 11 night Fijian holiday in November. I do try my hardest to see the positives in various places, but I must say I’m thankful we weren’t here very long. I will admit it’s quite cheap and you do get what you pay for, but still…..we weren’t all that impressed and were glad to be only here for a short time.
The negatives………Our garden view room was very, very small and claustrophobic, smelled musty and stale, the air conditioning was freezing cold on the lowest setting, but the room was stuffy and hot and smelly without it, the bathroom was tiny and smelled like fresh paint (but not in a good way!), the beds were extremely uncomfortable, the pillows absolutely stunk of sweat and goodness knows what else and were the most uncomfortable I have ever encountered in my life, I am not convinced the sheets were entirely clean, and there was no hot water! Ok, I tell a lie, that evening we managed to have a lukewarm shower, but the following morning when I tried to revive myself before our early departure all I got was freezing cold water. The whole place was pretty noisy too, you could hear cars coming and going, people coming and going, and planes coming and going, all hours of the day and night. We had a terrible night sleep because of all this, and were so glad to be leaving at 7am. Basically morning couldn’t have come quick enough!!
The positives……… cheap and convenient for a 1 night stopover, close to the airport (but also see negatives re noise!), had a TV, clock radio, small fridge, restaurant on site with room service, nice enough looking pool area although we didn’t have time to use it. The meal we had in the restaurant was fine – nothing to write home about but certainly ok and reasonably priced. They also had a small cot already set up for my son, which was surprising considering 2 other places we stayed at while in Fiji lost those instructions during translation.
I wont go on about it, in all I’ll just say its cheap and convenient to the airport, I can’t really say how close it is to Nadi town because we weren’t there long enough to explore but the taxis lined up outside reception were a good indication its probably not just a quick stroll down the road, and if you do want to go anywhere you don't have to look far for transport. If we return to Fiji I’d probably stay here if there wasn’t anything better to choose from. I would recommend this place for short stopovers only, and definitely not for a week long stay unless you're planning on being away from the hotel exploring Fiji all the time, because there didn't seem to be much else close by.
