Mercure Nadi3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The Mecure is what you pay for basically. It's not Denarau Island and the prices aren't Denarau Island.... if you catch my drift. Room was all good, bed was comfortable and bathroom was nice. One annoying factor was the door that joins hotel rooms together - this let in a lot of noise pollution from the neighbors. Internet - too expensive to buy. Breakfast - was ok - make sure you go around the corner to get some fresh hot food. No signage or anyone telling you about this, so I missed it on the first day. Close to airport and airport transfer is free. Only took one photo and that was of the pool so that might be saying something! I would stay here again.
This is a tired and run down tourist trap situated around ten minutes from the airport. I really cant imagine a more depressing start or finish to your holiday at a price that will hurt. Possibly the worst Mercure I have ever stayed in anywhere. We Found: - the rooms to be neat and tidy but not all that clean. The rooms were a reasonable size. - it took around ten minutes to get there from the airport; - the beds to be comfortable; - the dollar bus stops almost opposite the hotel on the way back from pretty much anywhere you want to be. Which by the way is not at this hotel. However we also found: - on both visits the promised transfer from the airport never showed up - the colour scheme to be cross between a brown nightmare and a drab grey recipe for depression - the bathroom to be well beyond its best days - very few power points that worked - there is no lift. So if you are ok with getting up and down 3 floors by the steps then ok i guess. - the 'Rosie' tourist desk to be clueless - the front desk to be useless (even by Fijian standards) - INTERNET is NOT free. They advertise free internet but you only get it if you join Accor. Either way the internet is slow to the point of tediousness. Get your internet through Digicel or Vodaphone at the airport. This place might have seen better days but my guess is that it has been second rate from the start. Fiji is generally overpriced compared to say Bali so a comparison is really relative to other places nearby. My view is you should go a little more upscale and get to one of the nice hotels in Denarau or find somewhere cheaper. I wouldnt even recommend it as a one nighter for the airport because there are closer hotels to the airport and it is not that much further to Denarau.
We had a confirmed reservation for the hotel, but upon arrival (and after checking in) were informed by the duty manager that they had double booked our room and it would be necessary to transfer to the Novotel hotel. After a long day travelling, this was not the welcome we expected. It was some time later when we finally arrived at the Novotel and the following morning had to be transferred back to the Mercure for an arranged pickup. The experience was extremely disappointing and not what we would expect from a large hotel chain.
It was conveniently situated to the airport. They provided free transport to the airport. It was also at a walking distance to supermarkets and restaurants. The condition of the room was average. Lack of a safe was of concern. It was Ok for one or two nights stay.
This was my second time at this resort and I will continue to make it my choice when in Nadi. Buffet breakfast was quite good, many options. The dinner was very good for the price. The gift shop on compound is also great.
Our daughter is a medically diagnosed Coeliac. Trying to eat here was terrible. The staff had no idea of what we needed. We asked for no wheat, where the chips fried by themselves or anything else etc. They did not understand at all. We paid for our daughter to have breakfast thinking there would be at least fresh fruit, yoghurt etc that would be suitable for her however what a waste of money that was. The fruit looked like it was from a can and anything she could eat she wasn't sure if any cross contamination had occurred. So she barely ate a thing. I chose the Mercure to stay at because I was sure they would be up on people who suffer from these types of diseases but they have no idea. Do not stay here if you have a coeliac family member
The hotel is located quite close to Nadi airport (although definitely not the closest), which means it's OK for a transit stop between trips if nothing better is available, but I wouldn't want to stay there for more than a night. The rooms are very dated - the whole place reminded me of a 1970's motel. When you arrive, there are no signposts as to where the rooms are, so it is a bit of a guessing game. If you arrive in the dark, like we did, finding the light switch in the room is next to impossible - there are no switches anywhere near the door. The bed was comfortable though and the room was clean. The kokoda (raw fish) served in the restuarant was the worst I've ever had though - the fish was dry and very tough, it had obviously been sitting for quite a long time before serving. It also took over 30 minutes before our order was taken at dinner, in the end we had to leave the table to track down a server to get them to take our order.
After flying to Fiji we picked up our hire car and prebooked the Mercure. Its an acceptable place to stay for one night. Close to the airport but it is a little tied and is in need of an update. It is setout like a resort with a nice swimming pool but its nowhere near the sea. If you want to stay here suggest you book it online before you leave as walk in rates are not atractive. There are nicer places in Nadi to stay but of course you get what you pay for.
We stayed for 5 nights and had a plessent stay. Rooms were clean. Staff were lovely and very accommodating and food was expensive but nice. We were unfortunate to have been ripped off the first night by the beauty spa therapist there and found out later that we were not the only ones so if your planning on a massage go elsewhere. The staff at the hotel were lovely and did everything they could to make our stay a good experience. Lots of very good restaurants just outside hotel and busses and taxies right outside. Overall a great stay
Stayed here for a few nights, the first night we couldn't figure out the air conditioner. The food is great in the morning and the bartender is very friendly. The wifi can be pretty spotty so don't rely on it. Food plates from rooms can be left out for an extended period of time so be prepared to see the birds and bugs when passing it.
