Tokatoka Resort Hotel (Viti Levu, Fiji)

5 Case Rating


Location

Hotel is located around 2 minute drive from Nadi airport. 10 minutes to Nadi town & 20 min to the port of Danarau- which is the main connection to the islands. Within walking distance there is a market about 15 minutes walk down the road, there is not much else other than the main airport of Fiji.

Room

The majority of rooms are all ground level houses with high ceilings though there is s main building. There is covered walkways to get to your room/building if on floor level. My room 225 was quite far from say reception.
The room itself offered a queen sized bed which was softer than the previous hotel I stayed at in Fiji. Bedside tables each side, one with a basic digital alarm clock & the other with a telephone, above offered lamps each side but high with switches on left hand side so you have get out of bed to switch off etc. This is also where there is a ceiling fan & digital seperate AC unit- all worked fine. The room oddly offered a 3rd single bed. In terms of plugs there were some each side behind the bedside tables- Australian kind.
In from of all the beds from the left – there was a desk & lamp with a large mirror and some plugs of which a US two pin was offered on one- you would need to unplug the the or desk lamp or TV for AUS plug. The TV was dated seemed small and not a flat screen with some channels having grainy pictures. I noticed a few local channels, plus Australian & Japanese NHK only. Below the TV was an empty fridge one side & the other contained a kettle to make hot drinks. Further along was a large wooden wardrobe that contained a lap top size safe, plus iron & ironing board.
The bathroom is at end of room & split into 2 rooms, the toilet & a shower cubicle with sink in middle. They offered hotel branded mini bottles of shampoo, conditioner and body lotion. Soaps as well. Shower worked fine.
The room offers shutter type windows with mosquito nets in front. Overall the decor is quite bland lacking any picture or much general ambience, however it was quiet (when hurricane wasn’t happening). There is also a covered porch with two chairs & ash tray for smokers. The room also offers a fire extinguisher but surprisingly no complimentary water is provided.

Facilities

It is hard to say as spent the night due to flight cancellation & was here during the night cyclone Winston came thru. However was impressed hotel offers back up generators and thus power remained on during the storm. Wifi is free for one hour then cost FJ$20 for 24 hours but due hurricane went down after 2 hours of service. It seemed quite slow when it did work but generally hard to judge naturally since a category 5 hurricane was affecting FIJI.
Catering facilities included buffet breakfast & buffet dinner. Breakfast had hot & cold choices such as fruit, cereal & breads. Hot was pork sausages, beans, fries, scrambled egg & fried egg plus some vegetables. Dinner had fish, chicken, potatoes, vegetables some pork I think. Overall the food was edible, dinner being better but far from outstanding. It cost FJ$45 for dinner. There was also a bar.
Leisure facilities observed included an interesting pool that offered a large slide for adults as well as children- it looked fun but following cyclone Winston it was out of action. There was also a play area for kids with climbing stuff & frames etc. The hotel also had a large souvenir & convenience store, which had some decent items plus a tour desk. I also noticed some washing machines & dryers for guests.
Overall there was quite a bit of damage from trees on the ground after the 200mph cyclone so was hard to judge & perhaps the hotel offers more facilities.

Staff

Staff were ok, it was a difficult situation as stayed there the night the cyclone category 5 came thru, the staff were relaxed but not so personal like I found on the island. However the porter Mala was very kind.
Overall this is the better hotel to be very close to the airport but it is not the Fiji experience. I would stay here if needed to be up very early for an flight. Again my review was when I stayed as a result of Cylone Winston, a category 5 and it was very scary but the buildings all survived though a lot of tree’s didn’t. However staff handled the situation well.

The Verdict Is...

Nothing to walk to but bus to airport is less than 5 minutes. Room for price was ok, old non flat screen TV, no complimentary water and very simple 3 star standard amenities. No free WIFI and works patchy but amazing pool and food is acceptable buffet but a little overcharged. A nice souvenir shop is offered though. Staff are nice but not as personal as on resorts. However this was during Cyclone Winston.
