Uepi is fantastic. We highly recommend Uepi and are already planning a return trip. The diving and snorkelling was excellent. There were hammerheads, many sightings of pygmy mantas and eagle rays and heaps of sharks. We even had the unique experience of snorkelling with Dolphins - wow! The bungalows are well appointed and well maintained. We stayed in a garden bungalow but would try to stay with in a waterside bungalow next time. The garden bungalows are perfectly fine, we simply would like to be right on the water's edge. The food is excellent and they catered for my son's food allergies with ease. The nightly meals are buffet style and you eat at shared tables with the other guests. Fish and crayfish feature prominently on the menu. The owners, Jill and Grant, live at the resort and are wonderful hosts. This is one of the best run resorts we've come across in the Pacific - this is all down to Jill and Grant's excellent training of the staff. We found the other guests very friendly and we've made some good friends here. The power's on 24 hrs/day but the showers only have cold water - you quickly get used to this. The big house is great and has a new big bar area. Can't wait to go again.
