“Return to Paradise..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Having recently returned from my 3rd trip to Coralview, I must say that I’m struggling to get myself off Fiji time and get back to reality.
It was a great feeling to see the all beautiful smiles and hear the friendly bula’s from the staff at Coralview once again, the destination itself is paradise, but it is definitely the people on the island that keep me coming back again and again (I’m already working on my 4th trip!)
The available activities are fun, the food is delicious and the entertainment is great.. I can assure you that you’ll never be short of a laugh at this place! I must mention the diving too – if you’ve never scuba dived Coralview is the perfect place to learn, both Nicko and Rob are wonderful teachers and the underwater world that you get to see is breathtaking! After a big afternoon diving Manasa the barman whips up a great cocktail too, just to get you started for the no doubt fun-filled evening ahead! I really can’t wait for my next visit for more of the same!

Bula bella0101,

Thanks for taking time to write this review and its always pleasing to have a returnee on her 3rd visit leave Coralview Island Resort satisfied but being more of a Fijian than anything else.

Very humbling to read the various comments about food, the activities, the diving, the cocktails, the entertainment and most importantly the people who work day in and day out to not only keep the guests happy but also the whole operation of the resort on a daily basis.

Thanks again for your kind review and we hope to see you back for a forth visit in the near future.

Vinaka & Regards

Coralview resort was a fantastic island to visit! The accommodation was clean, food was great and the Fijians were so nice and friendly! I loved being able to relax on the beach but then do activities which were available - from learning to crack open a coconut to playing volleyball with the Fijians!
Its a perfect spot to do snorkelling and the trips that are on offer were fantastic - i recommend going to the caves and blue lagoon, so worth it!
The island was a bit quiet at times so if you want a bit of peace and tranquility this is perfect for you.
I really had a great time here - Vinaka!!

Arrived to a small group of fijians in nice uniforms singing the Bula song - loved that - and then given a nice cold drink as we made our way to the meals room to have lunch and be entertained once again with a song. Great first impression. Rooms were good, people were friendly and living on 'Fiji time'. Activities everyday which were written on the blackboard the night before. Shark dive was great, blue lagoon was beautiful and the entertainment was serious as well as funny. The beach was nothing to rave about but it was fine by my standards. Volleyball nearly everyday at 5 - all welcome, including the kids. The only thing my husband would change is the regular hot meals - he would have been happy with the occasional sandwich with peanut butter. We stayed for seven nights and took our two children 11 and 8, they also had a fantastic time. I could rave on but must end it here. We fell in love with the people at Coral view. Vinaka guys and see you when we return.

After a bit of a sketchy trip and being shafted to numerous dodgy resorts it was so great to finish our trip at this gorgeous island resort! The people are sooo friendly! The manager made you feel like he cared for each of his guests! Plus the accommodation was clean, comfortable and air conditioned!! We stayed in the 10 bed dorm and it was great, the beds were separated by little half-walls which gave a good element of privacy you don't normally expect in dorms. The food was pretty good too =) We were there for new years eve and they put on a magnificent party for us! They put all the tables down on the front beach for dinner, gave us free rum punch, put on a big show with many different traditional dances and Hakas, had fire works from 9pm till some time like 3am, limbo, dancing, cava ceremonies... it was just so much fun! They really went above and beyond to make our stay one to remember!
There were only two things that were a bit of a bummer - the front beach wasn't great for swimming and didn't really have any good snorkeling (however we didnt get a chance to walk to the beach that was apparently on the other side of the island and I don't know what swimming/snorkeling was like there). The other downer was connected to the first in that you had to pay for any activity you wanted to do, and because there wasn't really great snorkeling at the island that meant you had to pay if you wanted to do anything at all...

Having said that, Coral View was really close to Blue Lagoon which had some of the best snorkeling (thousands of fish and even some sea horses!) and was also close to the Saliwau (or something like that) caves that you can go swimming in, which is a must experience but that review goes somewhere else.

Also, Coral View is the furthest stop out on the Yasawa Flyer (approx. 5hours from mainland) so if you get sea sick pop them pills, and if you get bored bring a book - though there are some pretty gorgeous sites to be seen) and make sure you don't miss the boat because there is only one a day!

All in all, you might have to pay more for activities but the staff and accommodation more than make up for the lack of amazing front beach =)

Thanks Coral View!

Room Tip: Buy your own flippers and snorkels and take them with you (this counts for everywhere in Fiji - you...

Bula Cat D,

Thanks so much for taking out time to give your feedback about your recent experience on the island. It is always pleasing to read that not only the hard work of the staff but the resort as a whole met or we hope even exceeded your expectations.

The new years eve setting on the beach was second to none on a beautiful evening and we couldn't have wished for a better farewell for the year 2012. We also welcome negative feedback and we will look into the mentioned feedback. Thanks again for the feedback and we hope to welcome you back to Coralview Island Resort in the near future.

Coralview Island Resort was our 3rd stop on our island-hopping-tour.

The resort was not so typical fiji-styled as the resorts and islands before. We did not get so much island-"tom-hanks-lost"-feeling, but the resort itself was very nice and clean. The food was good (you even could order eggs for breakfast for a very good price!), the cocktails were excellent (the best ones we had on our whole fiji-trip) and we found the very best view there. At no other place we found such blue and wonderfull water.
