It is what it is. I was in Nadi on a 15-hour layover between Melbourne & LA, so I just wanted access to a beach, so under $20US for a bed & locker in a dorm room was totally worth it for beachfront access. The rod & showers were dirty, and the Pirate Dorm smelled so awful (like a monster mix of body odor, feet, and fish), that I couldn't nap in there as planned. And I'd advise wearing flip flops in the showers to avoid mold or fungus. BUT the beach is awesome, the staff is friendly, the restaurant is surprisingly excellent, I got a fantastic massage at the spa, and they have all sorts of activities available. No idea what the more expensive rooms are like, I'm sure much better than the dorms. But it was definitely worth the $20 to be right on their beautiful beach for the day.
The staff were so friendly, helpful and courteous! the location was paradise!! Being collected from the airport was a lovely extra! we loved our stay at Smugglers cove!!
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.
The staff is very nice. The facility lacked Any ambience or character. The website says airport shuttle - yet when we arrived we were informed theshuttle only offers pick up service.
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.
location, food, staff - superb orange juice was tasteless (with water?) on the breakfast, two-storied bed (expected one big bed)
Altho the staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms were less than ideal. Construction noise (Mon thru Sun; 7 am to 6 pm), small....ask for a larger room or a bungalow....poor food in the only 'restaurant', teeny-tiny shower stalls, no soap, conditioner, wash cloths.....and don't ask for another towel...
Whilst we were only at the resort for one night prior to our cruise we were all really surprised at how nice the hotel is. Our experience with "airport hotels" is not very postive but the Novotel Nadi was a great surprise. Would definately stay again. The free internet was very useful and the breakfast great.
Excellent location, close to Nadi Airport, very good rooms and facilitities together with helpful and friendly staff.
Check-in was quick and friendly. Good value (we have stayed there many times). Not on beach -- but taxis to beach/airport are easy to get and cheap. Didn't try restaurant -- which was poor in the past, but has been refurbished. Only complaint is that former main bar, an attractive feature, has been removed.

The Novotel Nadi is conveniently located about 5 minutes drive from Nadi airport and the free shuttle bus was appreciated. The rooms were clean and comfortable and had all that we needed. We stayed for one night before our flight home.
Staffs are friendly and helpful. They are flexible on extending my check out time. very near to airport and provide free airport transfer.
room service was not very good
