COMFORTABLE, CONVENIENT & SUPER HELPFUL. FANTASTIC FIJI ACCOMMODATION WITH NO FRILLS.

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 29 Mar 2024via mobile
SMUGGLERS COVE BEACH RESORT ⛱️
HIGHLY RECOMMEND this accommodation for couples, singles and large groups as they have backpacker rooms as well -  The exterior can be a little misleading but comfort is definitely guaranteed  🤗 We can't believe thier star rating isn't at least a 4!
We received a fabulous upgrade when we arrived. Very friendly reception staff and helpful with luggage as no lifts..Very convenient laundry room & shop for basic supplies.Great Air con in very comfortable rooms with brilliant space for 2 x suitcases along with excellent coffee making facilities and very nice bathrooms. Refreshing pool and great wee bar. Fabulous Sunday night dance show. Good music. Good location from the airport and shops. A really sensible choice for before and after Island Hopping. They also have a fantastic counter at reception for booking everything you need to do in Fiji and the islands called EPIC TRANSFERS & TOURS FIJI 🇫🇯 Have thoroughly enjoyed our stay with this place being one of our highlights 😀
Only one suggested improvement would be to not have the pepper and salt in cruets, as most unhygienic.
But everything else has been wonderful. Vinaka vaka levu for having us.. we can't wait to come back ❤️

Great place to see. The Beach is right there infront of the hotel plus the staff are so friendly. Have to tip them all the time cause they did a great job. I walked everywhere. Walked to the supermarket, to the other hotels which all have a different food to tingle your taste buds.

Stayed two nights in this hotel as it was booked by our travel agency. Average hotel that needs updating and hot water in the showers. The only reason I gave this review 4 stars and not 2 was down to the restaurant/ bar. There was a great variation on the menu and the food was good. The main reason however was down to Praneel working there. He honestly made our weekend, referring to us by name and speaking to us in ‘as gaeilge’ - our native language. He is a breath of fresh air and couldn’t do more for us both evenings we ate in the bar. He is excellent at his job and a credit to the hotel. Go raibh maith agat Praneel for making us laugh and being so welcoming.

Bula gemma,
We're sorry to hear that your room hot water shower was intermittent during your stay. Had this been raised with our team, we would have rectified it right away as sometimes its a simple matter of turning the tap in the right direction. As all our rooms have been updated lately, please detail areas which in your opinion need to be upgraded.

Thank you fr the shoutout to Praneel! We will be sure to pass on your comments.

Vinaka from team Smugglers Cove Resort Fiji!

Arrived at 7.30 and didn’t get meal until 9.30pm -chicken was over-cooked -bangers and mash was “Worst he’s ever had-beef burger Pattie was dry -wings were edible for those living in India -drinks were okay -meal was warm including the salad. Garlic bread as starters was nice but after an hour we’re pretty hungry.. kitchen under-staffed and waiter tried his best -would not recommend!

Room tip: Check your bill carefully -could not account for $20

We didn’t stay at this property but spent several evenings here for meals and drinks. Lovely spot to watch the sunset and the food is very good. A special thanks to Praneel for his exceptional service, he was a big part of why we returned each night
