    Fab connections with their shuttle. Quite near the airport. Wonderful staff. Comfy bed. Good internet setup for those without laptops. Easy laundry. Refreshing small dip pool. Could use some more lounge chairs and mattresses for the beach and around the pool. Decent breakfast of fruit, toast, cereal and hot drinks. Store with necessities behind reservation. Dependable wakeup calls. Taxis to airport readily available. Once again outstanding staff.

    More lounge chairs and mattresses.

    The view from the oceanfront balcony room is lovely and there was plenty of space to move in both the room and the bathroom. However, as this is predominantly a backpackers location and the room is right over the bar area, it can be noisy in the evening.

    The location is isolated if you don't have transport which means you have to buy all your food on site. The quality of food is not great and it can be difficult to get what you ordered. We took the 'breakfast included' option and were disappointed as there were rice bubbles, toast, marmalade and tea (no coffee unless you purchased it). Cooked breakfasts are available to order. The website advertises 'all taxes included' and they still put extra tax charges on the account! They need to improve service offered and communication between staff.

    Good

    Location and food were good

    They completely messed up our booking. They tried to give us an internal room, when we had specifically requested an Ocean View, They had emailed us two weeks before trip saing that they had booking problems would we mind movin to a cheaper room. We immediately declined and they came back to us and confirmed our original booking. On arrival they tried again to give us an internal room. Only when we refused to take the room did they give us their one suite, which had a partial ocean view. During our stay they also booked in another couple into the room we occupied!!!!! They were in total disarray regarding bookings.!

    it was close to the airport, everyone was helpful and frendly. the food was great.

    that you could have a beer at the bar or lunch at the dinning room and keep a eye on the kids in the pool.

    Staffs were helpful, always there when I need to ask about any things; cozy restaurant, great location by the beach front, great information from tourist desk.

    Breakfast is not satisfiying, juice was not concentrated, price of food from restaurant is quite expensive, not many vegetarian selection, room was smelled awkful because of the bedcover.

    Fabulous

    Quite good location, on the beach and quite close to the airport. Scuba school on site. Beach good, but a little bit muddy. Good stopping off point on an onward trip to the Yasawas. Evening entertainment, dancers and Kava nights quite entertaining.

    It was quite good as far as location and was away from the depressing city of Nadi. It was also on the beach, and facilities were quite good.

    Superb

    My 4-berth room was spacious with high ceiling, airconditioned with an upmarket bathroom. Excellent security. Courtesy pickup from Nadi airport. Perfect spot to relax with enormous curved beach just out front. Couldn't have asked for more. Complimentary breakfast was totally adequate since I was not there to gain weight but eat healthy. A truly relaxing spot.

    Indian chefs were great when it came to dahl soup and presumably other Indian cuisine. When it came to fried rice I imagine the recipe said, "take one cup of sawdust". Prices were a bit on the steep side. At an upmarket hotel near Nadi airport I decided to live it up in the coffee shop for a final celebratory meal before flying out. The meal was terrific, far superior to any I had at Smugglers, and cost considerably less. The above is the only negaritive comment I have about my stay and I wouldn't hesitate to return if it were not for the restaurant.

    Great staff and great food. Weather was warm, not always sunny. Great stopover choice for a short break or for before/after travelling to outer islands. Great section of beach for swimming and for walking along. Good long walk up to Club Fiji for lunch with their extensive menu. Bus stops outside Smugglers or it is a cheap taxi ride into Nadi. I had a great three days of relaxation before finishing my 6 week holiday.

    There were a series of repairs underway both outside and in the section of rooms I was in - but this was just bad timing and in low season.

    Superb

    Quality Budget Hotel alone the strip, by far the best facilities, comfort and eating areas. We arrived back from both the islands and the feejee experience and stayed at this place, it was a friendly, not to overpriced clean hotel. The bar and evening entertainment was also good. A good place to clean off after the islands!!

    Everyone else from the surrounding backpackers came to the Hotels bar for the use of its facilities.

    The staff completely made the stay enjoyable. Food was great (though free breakfast was minimal). Location was convenient. Rooms were great and layout with deck fabulous. But staff were friendly and helpful, making them a big highlight of my trip :-)

    Continual flirting from male staff. The sexual undertones of the resort and entertainment. Maybe a drawcard for promiscuous young travellers but repulsive for others.

    Very good

    I wanted a place on the beach. It is not the white beach, blue waters that you get when you think Fiji, but I also did not want to be on a 'small secluded' island with white sand and blue waters either. The price! Our room was $80 USA a night. Our goal was to spend more $ doing things, than paying for a room to sleep and take a shower. The staff, esp Sharon and Asa. Asa helped us book our South Sea Island day and she helped set up a 'walk/waterfall/village' tour for my daughter and I. Sharon gave us a great tip on where to have dinner ou last night in Nadi.The restaurant at Smuggler's had a large variety of food items at a reasonable price. The use of the Booked.nets for free, we ventured out on our last day. The fire/knife/dance show that they offer twice a week.

    Well, there really are not any other hotels/resorts around, so when you go for walk on the beach, the beach is not that clean once you leave Smuggler's. But that is not their fault. Being vegan, I wish they offered more fruit in the morning with their complimentary breakfast. I had bananas and pineapples every morning for breakfast. I was happy that I could order a fresh made juice every morning (carrots, apple, pineapple and ginger for $16 Fiji :) Our first night there, there was a thunderstorm, the room next door to us... the roof leaked and our friends woke to water on the floor.
