While staying here i encountered concerning problems, privacy, theft and unprofessional environment. I met a 'friendly' housekeeper who became obsessed with me being at the premise, I felt she read my presence as some type of signal to crossing the line! I talked another staff member who confirmed this was not the first instance of its type! While away on...

Bula bula, thanks for the feedback and apologies for the less than wonderful stay. We appreciate all the nights that you stayed with us and feel terrible that your lost passport has lead to an unfortunate impression and a bad review. We have lockers in all of our dorm rooms and we encourage our guests to leave their valuables inside....

I stayed here for a one night stop over. The room was nice n clean with air conditioning. It has a shared bathroom which wasn't so ideal because some of the guests left it very messy. It has two showers and a separate toilet. I room I stayed in didn't have a key for me to use and it was...

Holy smokes, whatever you do, don't stay in room 7, there are children that live on the premises and next door is their stomping ground, literally they stomp all day starting from an early hour. At least it gets me out of the room early. Definitely not peaceful. And not the kind of background noise that's easily ignored. Screaming children...

Bula Vanessa, thanks for the feedback and sincere apologies for the noise. Our property was originally setup as a relaxing and peaceful alternative to the surrounding budget accommodation providers in the area, and thus our surprise to see your review! Although we have no children living on the premises, we occasionally do get family guests staying with us. Had we...

This is a nice place to stay in Nadi. Just out of town $1.60 by bus with it turning around at the top of the street only 50m away. The Yasawa flyer bus pick up there too, so it is a good place to stay to access the smaller islands. Staff were friendly and helpful. Everything you need is within...

Bula Janika, Thanks for the positive feedback and apologies once again for the admin issue! Our Front Desk Team report that all is fine and the issue was solved the same morning.

I booked one night and another for 5 days later, through Booking.com. The first stay went well, as I had a large room with two single beds in it. It had functioning aircon and was clean with good linen. The shared toilet and bathroom were also very clean. They let me take a jug to my room to boil water...

Staff was wonderful - especially Holly! Facilities and amenities were great, the hostel was right on the beach with easy access to supermarket and anything you might need while on vacation. Was easy to book activities from the hostel to travel throughout the other islands of Fiji.

Accommodation was very clean and beyond my expectations. My boyfriend and I spent 9 nights at Bluewater and we were very pleased with the friendly welcoming service from the staff. It's only 2 mins away from the beach and we would definitely recommend this place in the future to family and friends.

Thank emmasond .
