Hats off to Tracy, Nancy, Eta and Maria who took exceptional care of our dive group during our stay. They quickly learned all of our names and catered to all of our dietary needs. Housekeeping was also outstanding, delivering fresh flowers in the room everyday. Diving was exceptional and the dive masters were very friendly, Padi trained and experienced.

The entire staff was great, the dive operation was run well, just a great experience overall. The meals were tasty and well-prepared. There weren't many guests when we visited in February, so we were pampered in many respects. The resorts ideal location to diving made it a good choice for us; only 15 or 20 minutes in the boat to...

Nice place. Love the area. Love the island. Didn't like the staff asking too many personal questions. No privacy. They try to find info on you and if your a private person, not recommended to go there. Staff needs to be thought to not to invade and spread and respect privacy. I was told all the people who came here... More

My friend and I stayed in one of the upstairs Ocean View rooms. Unfortunately on the first night the room had a number of problems such as AC and TV remotes, bed lamp and some power points not working and no soap.for the hand basin (and the shower gel dispenser was broken). These were not major but a little annoying.... More

Garden Isle was a perfect choice for us. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff is super! The beds are comfy with nice linens. Plenty of hot water and water pressure. The jacuzzi tub is a treat outside after diving. Dive shop is well equipped and the Dive Masters are knowledgeable and fun. The food was tasty and fresh and... More

What a great night. On the spur of the moment we decided to go out for dinner on our anniversary and chose the Garden Island because of all the wonderful meals we have had in the past. The Garden Island Resort is probably one of the biggest secrets and I would have to say that food preparation consisting of special... More

From the charming welcome song to the view of blue sea through the coconut palms it is difficult to criticise this lovely hotel. I was part of an organised bird-watching party who experienced excellent service from quietly friendly staff. Our room was clean and comfortable and all the food was well presented and tasty. The management are to congratulated on... More

i need to preface this review by saying that i mistakenly first posted this review under the Taveuni Dive Resort heading. The owner of TDR was kind enough to bring it to my attention, so kudos to him/her. Just another example of the goodness of the Fijian people. My wife and i had a wonderful experience with every aspect of... More

Call it procrastination or Fiji hangover. My wife and I had a wonderful experience with every aspect of our time at TDR. John picked our group up at the airport and... More
