We stayed here for 5 nights. The staff generally were exceptional, polite, friendly and just good at their jobs! It is only a very small place, which does give it a more friendly feeling, the guests were all talking to each other and saying hello etc. Food was well priced and always of good quality. Wine much cheaper than bigger... More

Nice quaint little hotel. It has a beautiful foyer right when you pull up. Great little bar and lounging area with a beautiful view out to the Pacific Ocean. I also really enjoyed their breakfast accommodations with a chef onsite to take care of any omelette needs you may have.

I stayed one night on my way to another island. Nice western style hotel we got a room with a bay view and it was amazing-worth the extra few $. They also helped us book taxi services which were a really good value and very convenient. Good restaurant, nice pool, room had everything you need. Overall good value.

Great hotel and atmosphere. Rooms a little small but hey who stays in a room in Fiji? Service was excellent and friendly. 10 minute $10FD in a taxi to CBD of Suva. In comparison some items are more expensive than in town but not that bad. Would recommend defiantly if staying in Suva.

It is nice to relax... More

Returned to this hotel after a previous visit and the staff as always couldn't be friendlier. They remembered us from our previous visit. All through the hotel we were greeted with" welcome back"! Even the room attendants were great. The hotel is slowly dating but it's clean and presented well. Everyday the maintenance team were doing something .. Sanding this,... More

I stayed two nights at this resort city hotel. The location by the bay is indeed very quaint and enchanting. Rooms are not greatly luxurious but functional. Staff are friendly. It is not exactly in the heart of the town but an easy 15 minute drive. The bar lounge and the restaurant too enjoy the bay view. All in all... More

This is beautifully situated hotel with rooms just metres from the tranquil water. The view is superb. The service is very good. Plenty of smiles and friendly staff. The rooms are clean and modern looking. Unfortunately not much storage space in the rooms and the walls are thin. We had someone next door who left his TV on loud all... More
