I booked this hotel because the recent reviews seem to suggest that this hotel condition has improved, and I wasnt willing to fork out more money to stay at the other hotels around Nadi that have equivalently bad reviews.
The room itself is of decent size, with a sofa bed that provide more space to place items. However, my problem is with the linens used. I can see stains (many) on the sheets, and there are many dust marks as well, as if it wasnt washed properly. The tiles are easily marked by footprints.
Bathroom is extremely small. There was barely any room to place the towel. Shower cubicle is even smaller, if you are a big size person, you definitely will have difficultied manouverinh your way in and out of the shower. Floors and surfaces were stained, evidence of insufficient cleaning. The only small soap holder in the shower was tilted and unable to hold any bottle. No toiletries provided except for two bars of soap. Towels are yellowish, and the foot mat looked like it had never been washed with detergent.
Walls are thin, you can easily hear noises from rooms next door, the floor above you, and from outside your room. A lot of barking dogs from sunset onwards. There are window panels on top of the door, one glazed, and two clear panels. No curtains to cover and so it allowed lights from outside to shine in the room. Big issue for people who needs complete darkness to sleep.
But my biggest issue is with security. Hotel gate seemed to be always open, and I barely saw any staff around. Our room block is right next to the gate, with our door facing the gate. It definitely does not feel secure. We saw a few prostitutes hanging at the start of the road before you turn to the hotel, and we suspected a few were at the hotel.
It’s definitely the cheapest hotel in Nadi I could find with pretty good reviews, but after experiencing it myself, I dont think I will be coming back.
