Comments 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.
