Liked: Staff very helpful and friendly. Good location as your not far from Nadi Airport, two mins walk from the beach front and easy access into Nadi town centre by the local bus @ $1.15 FJD. From the bus station you can get to most places in and around Nadi if your travelling on a budget. You can also get to Demarue port from the bus station if you want to plan your own independant island hoping trips and tours or you can book with the friendly tour guide(s) who will help and advise you with all your trip excusions and tour plans.

Liked: The staff makes you feel welcome. It is a perfect location, close to the Airport, western islands, Nadi and you can do lots of other day trips departing from this area.

Disliked: The WiFi isn't working well. If you're just on Holiday it's perfect but if you have to plan and organize your next steps you have to depend on good working Internet.

Liked: Handy location. Can use all of facilities at smugglers cove but fraction of the cost.

Disliked: You get what you pay for... Cheapest accommodation at Newtown beach. Staff on reception were unfriendly and reluctant to answer questions. Rooms weren't clean. Ant infestation and bathroom in room reeked of urine.

Liked: Amazing friendly staff, always helpful and smiling. Evening restaurant is nice being small you get better service. You can use to the resort facilities next door so best of both worlds. Backpacker price, resort facilities. All our day trips were booked in site with transfers to the harbour making up for the mainland location.

Disliked: The light breakfast could be more varied, toast everyday is okay but not ideal, some cereal would have been welcome. Fan room was still too warm for us Brits, should have booked aircon.

Liked: People were friendly and helpful. Every evening there was entertainment for the guests and I enjoyed that. Almost everyday I was invited for special activities such as cooking kokoda, weaving or we were doing a quiz. It was a nice stay!

Disliked: The WiFi was sometimes too slow/connection too bad.

Liked: Horizon is attached to Bamboo and Smugglers (cheaper than Smuglers, but couple of $ more expensive than Bamboo), which means you can use the othe hostel access to the beach (few meters away) and benefits of the company and facilities of 3hostels combined. There is a nice pool, nice atmosphere, especially when local live music is played by Thai and the Kavaholics!

Disliked: The hostel is very old, less than basic.

Liked: The value is good, much cheaper than the other neighbouring properties at Wailoaloa beach. The bathrooms and showers could SERIOUSLY use a clean up... The staff didn't clean them once in my 4 nights here. Everyone was helpful and friendly and use of Smugglers Cove kayaks, stand up paddle boards and other facilities (i.e. Kava night; fire dancing show, etc) all for free is a great deal! All in all good just like I said a serious clean up needed for bathrooms/showers!
