This place is all about diving. If you have only a few (2-3) days in Fiji and your priority is diving, this is one of those places you might prefer. Normal Fijian prices for diving (about 185 FJD for 2 tanks, gear&boat included) and (honestly) stunning dive sites. Public transport reaches Rakiraki in 4 hours from Nadi and 6 from Suva. When you arrive to Rakiraki you need to hire a taxi for $15 one way, no shuttle provided by Volivoli. Dorms are ok (4 bunks plus the wardrobes), which are basic and clean, food is ok (average-good quality and good price(15-25 FJD/meal)). This is NOT a Fiji experience, it is owned by an Australian/New Zealand well known family and the 3 days I was there, the guests were about 35 americans, one Kiwi and myself. This is not a place to do some walks around, it is all about hanging out in the pool, eating or having some drinks when not diving, because there is really NOTHING else going on and NOWHERE else to get from there unless driving or sailing. Staff were not as friendly as in the other places I visited during my 40 days travel around Fiji, but just doing their work (which is fair enough, but not the friendly Fiji you find in other locations)
