I've had the pleasure of visiting Volivoli twice now. Both times I was beyond impressed. The diving is absolutely INCREDIBLE. Their boats are new, fast, and well maintained. They are able to take you out to the same sites that the livaboards dive. They're pristine and incredible. Not to mention the beautiful "house reef" you can dive or snorkel from shore.
The hotel itself is beautiful with some of the most spectacular views you've seen. Great sunset pictures too! I'd definitely recommend the Vale's, which gives you a full kitchen, however, all of their rooms are great. I believe they all offer a to-die-for view, even the backpackers "dorms."
The food is excellent, but don't expect a 5-star dining experience... that's not what they're all about there. However, the view from the main bure definitely overcomes the fact that you have to walk up to get your meal when your name is called. And don't forget to save room for some kava & games after dinner.
The entire property is simply gorgeous and you can always find your own piece of private space somewhere to relax. If you go, hopefully you get to meet the owners, the wonderful Darling family. (Yes, Darling is their last name). But I'm sure you'll see them around, since they're always there & live on property to make sure everything runs smoothly.
