“Great place when in transit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

AS my flight from Vanuatu was delayed, which made me miss my connection to L.A., I had to spend two days in Fiji (There is worse in life...) I reserved on line at the Raffles, asking to have the room for 7am the first day till 9pm on the second day. I paid $200 for a standard room, which sounded like a bargain. Upon arrival, there is a board with all the hotels and a phone. I called and they sent the shuttle immediately. The hotel is really just across the street from the airport but the noise never bothered me while there. The room was ready. It was perfectly fine, with air conditioning.
There is free internet access at the bar and wi-fi everywhere (but $20 a day is very expensive) . The pool is great and the restaurant is excellent, with great choice of local and international food.
Check in and out were very fast .

Overall excellent when in transit or even for people who do not need to be on the beach !

Room Tip: The standard rooms are quite OK for a day or two. Useless to pay more.

Raffles was the perfect place to ride out Nadi and surrounding area flooding. Staff was kind and attentive, even though they were all stranded in the hotel, unable to return to their homes and familes due to flood waters. This is a classic airport hotel with 24 hour shuttle service (absolutely necessary with a foot of water on the streets at the aiport.) We had a newly remodeled suite, very clean and spacious. Has to be best value in Fiji.

Room Tip: If space is an issue, opt for a suite.

After the horrors of the Novotel, we were a bit apprehensive but we had an early flight and needed to be close to the airport. Shuttle bus collected us and took us to the Raffles. It was late and reception was understaffed but we checked in in no time and the porter took us to our room which was spacious, clean and welcoming. Bed was very comfy and the bathroom was clean and the shower hot. Bar and restaurant area was lovely, table service from enthusiastic staff and if you ignore the idiocy of some drunk business travellers, it was a nice place for a cold beer in the heat of the Fijian night. Up at 5am and no problem getting our bags to the shuttle bus and it really is only 500 yards from the airport. Would definitely stay here again, but even with its pools, bars, restaurants etc, it really is a one night airport hotel

Room Tip: Go for one of the suites if you're there for one night, it doesn't cost much more but the ex...

Great value. Good pool. Convenient for a stopover to go to an island. Large rooms and very helpful staff. We even went there on our return trip (when we were not staying) instead of waiting at the airport, and the staff were so helpful

We stayed in this hotel by accident - we arrived to Nadi from Yasawas and had no accomodation and this one was proposed to us by travel agency at the Donarau harbour. We paid less for a higher standard room than for an ordinary room in Mercure hotel in Nadi and the quality here was much better. Raffles is just two minutes from the airport (OK, five minutes by foot), but be not afraid of the noise - it is very quiet indeed.

They have quite large swimming pool, but be not surprised with tens of frogs around in the evening (they don't jump to the pool, I checked ;-)).
