Resort: 30 motel type a/c rooms(15 rooms each level) with small balcony,
daily maid service, continental breakfast, lunch and dinner choices from
small menu, the menus did not change for the week.
Grounds kept up. Freshwater pool and hammocks to use to relax. Reasonable
prices on drinks. The Fijian help were wonderful and remembered your name
from the first day. A small boutique with limited items. Snorkeling in the
front of the resort was interesting. Surprisingly, the coral is in great
shape with only 5 to 7 feet of water covering them.

Dive operation: There was one large group in the resort that took over one
of the Alum. Boats. The other Alum. boat (both covered with two ladders
each) was used for the other divers (approx. 10 average per day) You did
not have to touch your gear, they washed it and reset it up on the tanks
before going out and after each dive. A break, between dives on the beach
for tea and cookies. Because of the overcast skies, the colors did not come
out as they had done on a previous trip but the soft corals, fish life and
sea snakes were wonderful. The corals are pristine and are thriving.
