We booked just a few days ahead, no problem. Had learned ahead of time that little was available on the island in the way of groceries, so picked some things up in Rakiraki prior to coming out. Called when bus was pulling into Rakiraki, caught a cab to the wharf after shopping and Bob was waiting there for us. Booked for the lowest rate room but were upgraded to a very nice, second floor, two-bedroom, self-contained flat - very nice! Only a couple of other people at the resort the day we arrived and they all left the next day. The surrounding resorts were also very empty. Free kayaks were great - paddled around the island one day, and out to nearby, very nice snorkel sites another. Beach at the resort was okay, but the beach on the other side of the island, about a 5 minute walk away, was fantastic. Food at the resort was pretty good, but not a great value. As with the other places on the island, you had to let them know by mid-afternoon if you were going to eat there and what you wanted. Pizza next door at MacDonalds was good. Woman running the reception/restaurant/shop was a little bit curt in her manner. Overall, especially considering the upgrade, a very nice stay.
