Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

When we arrived for a two night stay, AC was not working and they said it would be fixed next day. When we said this was unacceptable and we wanted to cancel our room, they found someone to fix it. The units could only operate at 1 temp. When we were checking out they said breakfast was included, which no one told us about. It seemed some of the staff really didn’t care. They did try to keep the place clean but it has rundown feeling. Would never stay here again

Friendly staff, good price, clean basic rooms, nice pool. Our only problem was the loud music that was played from 9am to 9pm; when you've come off an early morning flight and want to rest in your room, but all you can hear is untz untz untz, it's not my idea of paradise. We noticed the bar and restaurant area was pretty much always empty - despite the food being excellent - and we wondered if the music drove everyone away? Apart from that, a good value and nice place to stay.

Room Tip: The 'garden' rooms (ie non ocean view) were on the non bar side, so would have been a bit quieter.

Summary - If you're just looking for a cheap place to crash in order to spend the day doing tours, then Aquarius might suit you. If you're looking for a place to spend the day to relax, rest and enjoy the beach/facilities, then keep looking. The positive points: Excellent staff - friendly, helpful and professional. A/C worked well in the room, and my "Deluxe" room was spacious and clean. The chef and restaurant are quite good - I enjoyed the seafood dishes especially. There's a beach club next door with live music on Thurs - Sunday evenings. Problem points: This is a dirty beach, something that you don't see from the photos. They drive cars on it. I didn't see a single person swimming in this bay water, as neither the beach nor water appear clean. It's the closest beach to the city of Nadi and the airport, and it's on a bay where big ships like tankers anchor, not the clean Pacific water. It's ok for taking long walks or jogs. Noise: They didn't disclose that there's construction going on next door. So if you plan to lay out by the pool to enjoy the beach breeze and relax, be advised that you'll be startled by jackhammering intermittently. My "deluxe" room had no view, overlooking the walkway and a generator, was along the walkway where guests come and go, and was close to the street. So it was noisy 24/7. It was wet and muddy outside my room, and there was no door mat inside the room, so I had to use a bath towel to clean my feet when entering the room. I never had hot water - it was lukewarm and decent enough for a quick shower. There's a TV but it's not hooked up to cable. I don't like giving this place a bad review because I truly liked the staff, however, I would not personally stay here again, and in fact I would not return to this entire area of Wailoaloa Bay as it's dirty and not close to being a relaxing place to hang out. For the budget traveler who just needs a place to sleep, not a place to hang out during the day and enjoy the beach/pool.

The staff is incredibly accommodating and friendly. We arrived at 5:30 am and to my surprise and delight, they let us into our room by 9 am. So grateful!! The food is ok and the pool is lovely. The staff is constantly cleaning and there is a full bathroom with shower available to guests to use after checkout if you have a late flight. The grout in the shower could use a touch of bleach, and the patio chairs could do with a new coat of paint, but the staff cannot be any better.

Based on the prices in Fiji, this is a reasonable choice even with the annoyances. Nice pool area, easy access to the beach, restaurant and bar on premises. Refrigerator in room, coffee maker, and decent size room. Got a ride back to airport from their driver who was prompt. WiFi is terrible in all places of the hotel. Breakfast included for us but every morning was a battle as each new person could not figure that out (included because we booked directly with them which apparently is not usual). Entertainment at night but they left other loud music on nearby. Housekeeping left our curtains open so one could walk by and see all our stuff. Note - room 100 is not the best as washing area is below it that starts at 4am, and road noise.

Stayed at this place after reading some great reviews. This is excellent value for money. Fabulous beachfront location & amazingly helpful and friendly staff. If you want a bargain beachfront stop, this is definitely worth a look. The rooms are basic, but you will be amazed by value for money. The live music was a pleasant feel adding to the beachfront atmosphere. Love the boat bar!! Lots of restaurants also along this strip as well as on site. Plenty of street parking. I loved staying here and this will now be my go to for when I’m in Fiji for a stop over.

We stayed two nights in a twin. For the price and our short stopover the room worked ok. The fridge was a bit noisy so we had to turn it off at night. The curtains were also very thin so the room stayed light all night. The staff were all very friendly and the airport transfer for $20fjd were handy. We ate here the first night. Weren't overly impressed, and there are better places along this little pocket of hotels. Pool area has just been updated a little. Would consider again for brief stop but would also look at other options in the area.

Stayed as close proximity to the airport. Lovely courtyard and swimming pool with a lovely sunset and could stay and use facilities after checking out of the room and waiting for our flight. Would stay again for a night when flying in or out of Fiji.

They need to close when doing construction work that needs an angle grinder. As that was operating the whole afternoon right out by the pool, so you couldn't enjoy the food, drink or even sit in peace. I had a budget room, #1 it's right by the entrance, can hear every convo at reception. Room also surrounded on other side by staff corridor and a door that they have to wrench open to put in/retrieve pps cases, very noisy, easily solved (fix door) so very irritating. Casual vaccuming at 4.50am this morning. Then lots of chats between staff. Can hear everything. The one receptionist was working so hard, whilst another stood there and didnt do anything except pick paper off the printer, so everything took ages. For me, not worth the cheapness, wish I'd booked off the beach for less, as can't enjoy the view bc of angle grinder and tradesman van parked right in front.

Thank you for your review. Our sincere apologies for the construction work that was going on during your stay. We had warned our guests in advance of the work that would be done during some hours of the day, but the work has gone on longer than the contractors estimated, causing concern with our guests and our team. That noisy work is now completed, and the area around our pool is refurbished and more spacious than it was before. We hope we can entice you to return and enjoy our hotel the way it was meant to be. Vinaka.

We've stayed at Aquarius several times over the years and it is a sweet little hotel with a nice swimming pool. Though it now it is surrounded by several larger hotels with much building work going on in the area. This time there seemed to be fewer people staying, the shower ran hot and cold, the fish dinner was tough, the mattress was a bit minimal - and at breakfast they had no coffee available at all. But the internet was good. But it is a budget hotel and was clean and the staff friendly.

Bula vinaka and thank you for your review. We're pleased that you have chosen to stay with us several times over the years. We do share your concern about the larger hotels in the area coming up, but we have no control over that. The noisy part of their construction should now be finished. We note your comment on the food and the coffee and this was discussed with our team. We have not run out of coffee, so we're unsure why you may have been told there was none available. Our staff are pleased that you commented on their friendliness and the cleanliness of our hotel. We look forward to hosting you again on your next visit to our beautiful islands. Vinaka vakalevu (thank you very much)
