Fiji is a wonderful place,  the people are incredibly warm and friendly.
You need to stay more than a week (for you fellow USA folks), we stayed at
Taveuni (Garden Island Resort) for 1 week and Viti Levu (Wananavu) for 10
days.  Photographed some incredible treasures like a Manta, Harlequin Ghost
Pipefish, Leaf Scorpion, a school of 200 Chevron Barracuda's.  Boats were
fine, especially with only 4-6 divers.  Never did have more during our
visit.  Steel hulled, not much to look at, good sun protection.

Coral looks great - incredible vibrant colors.  Had a couple dives with
strong surface currents, but once you dropped 30' it was fine.

Avoid the day-room available at toka toka - terrible food, bugs in the
beds, and generally poor maintenance.  Also no where near as friendly as
other two resorts we stayed at.
