We visited the Solomons in Oct/Nov this year - we've been home a little over a week. We spent a week in Ghizo (well Mbabanga Island actually) and a week in Uepi. Our International flights were with Pacific Blue and flight times were a bit tight so (having heard how often Solomon Air changed flight times) we decided to play safe which unfortunately meant staying one night either end in Honiara. I will post reviews for all our accomodation but we really got the wrong place in Honiara (Pacfic Casino)!!
The flight to Ghizo was spectacular - the Solomons ae just so pictuesque (especially from the air). Having had a bad first impression our resort really had some work to do and I have to say it won us over at first sight. We stayed at Sanbis which is a fantastic place - the room was just great and the food was wonderful (especially the wood fired pizzas and the nightly Crayfish). We really didn't want to leave at the end of the week but we tore ourselves away and headed for Uepi Island Resort. Again, a brilliant flight followed by a bit of a bumpy boat ride (I'm a wuss when it comes to the sea!). Uepi was different but in it's way just as good as Sanbis. Hubby, who's a diver, preferred Uepi because the diving had so much more wow factor - I couldn't decide which was my favorite!! The lagoon at Uepi is brilliant for a non diver - the fish just come to you.
Anyway, we will be back for more, but will endevour to avoid Honiara next time around!
