“You have to sometimes expect to see changes occur between visits.......”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

I have to agree with another quite recent review regarding BLR. Last time I visited, it went by the name Marlin Bay Resort, and was just being handed over to new owners and management (or so we were told). And now, yes, it is time for some TLC in areas, but much was being done or starting to be addressed during my stay. This does not interfere with one's visit, not in the least! An aggressive team seems to be in place now. Just give them some time to remedy what others failed to do over the years. I still would not hesitate to go there in a heartbeat......what greets you each day is magnificent......all things considered. And Beqa is in a class by itself when diving is a priority. Truly, the abundance of soft coral colors & critters is hard to surpass, even when menacing current or visibility try their best to put a glitch on things. The resort's Fijian staff & dive team........also exceptional in every way. And I thought the diving would help me shed a few pounds........not with that fab menu. I should have taken more half portions!

Room Tip: Ocean view is nice. I've also tried the "mini-suites," very spacious. None of your o...

A group of 10 of us went to spend a couple weeks here at the end of March. The resort was not quite as advertised; it’s in need of some TLC which the owner seems to be working on. The grounds are lovely and the Koi Ponds really need some work to be beautiful again. We had a bure on the beach with a private plunge pool that didn’t work very well, but they did get it working for our second week. We had some glitches in our rooms, some of us didn’t get what we were signed for and we’re not sure if it was the travel agents (Dolphin Destiny) fault or the resorts. We still had a fun time and the diving was great, except a few unexpected strong currents and low viz. But we saw octopus, sharks (didn’t go on the shark dive) electric clams, turtles, eel, a sea snake and lots of other great fish along with the beautiful coral. The new dive masters, Chris & Vicky seem to have a good plan for the dive staff. We realized early on however, that when they were in the dining room they really didn’t want to be bothered by us, perhaps they should stay in private when they don’t want to be interrupted. We thought the food was great, the steak, chicken and calamari salad were my favs. What we didn’t try the first week we could the second as the menu repeated. The desserts were always amazing, the chef really is great. During our stay we had several massages and the women who do them are fantastic! They really know how to massage to relax muscles or do the deep tissue, the sugar rub was also amazing! So do yourself a favor and get some treatments while you’re there! This was our 3rd trip to Fiji because we LOVE the Fijians; they are the friendliest, nicest people in the world!

Room Tip: We stayed in a Bure on the beach with our own little cool off pool. Lots of privcay here, which we r...

We went to the resort to do the renowned shark dive - although it was cancelled the first day (due to weather) and the visibility was not great, it was still an awesome experience and highly recommended. The staff at the resort were extremely welcoming and knew you by name and room number despite it being full house. The food was excellent and bures were private in a lovely setting. Divemasters were great, although we ended up doing the same dive sites twice in the 3 days we were there. Met some people who did the shark dive while staying on the mainland and would definitely recommend staying on the island instead.

Room Tip: Garden bures are very private and quiet , but the ocean front looked amazing.

What a great vacation! This island/resort offers lots of relaxation, adventure, friendly faces, and culture. From day one, right after they welcome you to the island with Fijian song the staff gets to know you by name. And the dives were outstanding. As a beginner, all the dive masters were patient and went as slow and you needed. The grounds were beautiful as well as the bures. Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Definitely the beach front is the way to go!!

This resort is primarily for scuba divers, but non divers will enjoy it as well. I traveled with my daughter, a diver. The resort is on Beqa Island, a 45 minute boat ride from the main island of Fiji. The staff is wonderful, they sing you ashore when you arrive to great fanfare. The bures (cottages) are clean and well appointed, complete with hammocks and plunge pools. The snorkeling right off shore is spectacular. The resort has a VERY reasonable spa. We visited nearby villages, and the resort provides entertainment nightly. My daughter had nothing but good things to say about the dive crew. The food is AMAZING!! The pool and patio area is situated to enjoy the beautiful sunsets. All in all a wonderful resort!

We spent a week at Beqa Lagoon Resort in late November with a scuba diving group, but just taking the opportunity to post a review. What makes a great vacation? A gorgeous spot like Beqa Lagoon, the finest food you'll ever eat and a great people around you. Everyone at the resort could not have been kinder, more welcoming or more accommodating. How often do you shed a tear as you sail away from a spot while casting flowers in the water in hopes you will someday return?

The accommodations are beautiful, clean and serene; the culture a treat to learn about; and the cuisine superb. The diving is also a treat. With more than 100 dives under my weight belt, this was my first time diving the Pacific, and enjoyed the new (to me) varieties of fish and creatures you'll see if you go. And do go. And don't miss the shark dive; it will provide bragging rights for years to come.

I owe a particular debt of gratitude to a young lady at the front desk who did me a tremendous favor in an hour of need, and I hope to repay it with a box now making its way to the resort with cheater glasses for residents of a nearby village who seemed to need them. When you pack your bags, throw in school supplies you can donate to school children at another nearby village. The more unique, the better.

Thank you and bula.
