“Great staff, rooms not so great”
Reviewed 20 February 2014 via mobile

The staff were welcoming as soon as we got there. One of the girls who worked there asked our names when we arrived and remembered them the whole time we were there. The guy on reception was so helpful too, booking tours etc for us and organising taxis and buses for us

The whole resort looks nice e.g. The pool setting and the villas from the outside are really nice however the rooms let all of this down.

I'm not sure whether this is normal for Fiji but the rooms were so basic and although clean they were a bit shabby. The bathroom smelt a lot as well and neither the bathroom or shower door closed properly in the two rooms we had during our stay. All they'd need to do is give the rooms a good paint and replace the mosquito nets on the windows as some were broken therefore don't really work great...?

There must have only been 3/4 villas being used out of about 10+

The restaurant is great, there's always someone there if you want food and it's great value for money

We may stay here again for a short trip in an air con room but would pick somewhere more expensive for a longer stay.

Overall if the rooms were just touched up a little bit and if every room had air con then this would be a great hostel.

The staff definitely deserve to be recognised for how friendly they are!!

We stayed here one night when we arrived to Fiji. Roger and Mariana picked us up at the Airport and when we came to the hostel Roger helped us get a deal on Mana Island for the next 10 days. He was really helpful and nice to us and drove us the store and atm so we could do everything we wanted before we were going to the island the next day. The room was maybe not the best, but it was ok for one night. The food was good with ok prices. When we came back from the Island they let us stay at the hostel while we were waiting for our evening flight and then they drove us to the airport. They were really nice and helpful and we want to give a special thank you to Roger, Maggie and Mariana.

It was a place to stay before getting a flight back from Nadi so wanted something cheap & relatively comfortable. Though it was a very quiet atmosphere & quite dated throughout. Though we only wanted to sleep & sunbathe there, the rooms were still old. The double room is huge & had hot running water though the shower didn't turn off properly & had dripping water at night.
The food was enjoyable & a reasonable price for Fiji dishes. It also provided free WiFi but only at certain hours which they don't state until our arrive.
Personally having stayed at another hotel round the corner which I much preferred, I would've stayed there if the prices were as low as beach escape, the value is what you pay for.

The accommodation is very basic not 'villas' at all but worn wooden huts. The first one we stayed in had no hot water and the odd cockroach. The second one did have hot water so ask! The pool was cloudy so didn't use. The WiFi is only free between 7pm and 9pm. Much better atmosphere at Bamboo cafe next door so I would go there for dinner. We did book a tour through the owner, as it seems you can't do anything else, but he got most of the information wrong for example we had to get ferry to an island which he said would take 8 hours when it actually takes 20 hours! So I wouldn't reccomend staying or booking a tour here. Beach not very good!Saying that the staff are really friendly!

Myself and my partner stayed here and found the staff couldn't do more for us including arranging our ferry and whole trip for a week in the Yasawas Islands, which are also stunning by the way. For our last 2 nights before leaving Fiji we stayed here once again and had the same awesome treatment.

There is good food, a pool, close to the beach, airport pick-up and an affordable place to stay before visiting the paradise Fijian Islands.

We would stay here again.

Thanks Roger and the team

Reviewed 13 April 2013 via mobile

We booked a package through beach escape villa's and got a free night in a private room with shared with facilities, plus a free airport drop off and free breakfast. After doing some research on the package prices, we decided that we got a good deal and took the package.

The room was very small but clean. There were two beds inside and a third one would probably not fit. There was a 'table' fan which was a pity cause the rooms get very hot when the sun is shining on them throughout the whole day. The toilet and shower appeared quite clean, however they are situated in a room where other people sleep as well (?). Never seen such a construction before, and we felt awkward in the morning.

Anyway, there is a pool and the food is surprisingly good and cheap as well. Service is good and all in all we enjoyed our night. Since we got a package we don't know the prices.
