I was shocked to come across these bad reviews for Beachside.
I stayed there for two weeks last October & I couldn’t have had a better time.
It is clearly stated on the website that it is budget accommodation, so I had my expectations adjusted accordingly. To my delight the accommodation was better than I expected. My room was spacious & the bathroom was impeccably clean.
Breakfast has three different options, so I can’t see a problem there, something for everyone. Rooms have tea & coffee making facilities & a fridge.
Prices were in line with the standard in Fiji, cheaper meals than you would pay at a "resort" but no more expensive than any of the restaurants in town. I found all prices for food & activities etc in Fiji were more in line with Australia/New Zealand than say they would be in Thailand.
I found all staff, Jane, Phillip & the local staff very friendly, they all made me feel at home & was most accommodating to anything I asked for.
Yeah there are Geckos & cane toads but that is nature & the tropics, that is what you are going to get, you'll also get it in far North Queensland, complaining about that is like going to the tropics & complaining about the mosquitoes!
Dudley, Peggy & Ruby were great company & I didn’t find them to bark any more than a regular dog, I found them to be great companions & enjoyed many a long walk along the beach & swim with all three of them.
In regards to the beach, it is not a 10 minute walk; it’s more like a two minute walk to get to. The beach does on occasion look grotty but this is due to the Fijian culture of just dumping your rubbish wherever you happen to be, it is a problem all over the islands & something the government needs to address if it wants tourists to keep visiting Fiji.
When I was looking for a place to stay in Nadi I did extensive research before deciding to book with beachside & I couldn’t find any other place that offered the quality of accommodation at the prices offered at beachside. I recommend you research properly & ensure you understand what type of room you are booking & what you are getting for your money that way you won’t be surprised when you get there & it’s not what you were after.
For me – Beachside was wonderful, friendly & exactly what I needed.
