8/10 Very good

We were surprised that the property only consisted of one unit. It was a little more rustic than expected. However the owner shared meals with us at his home & the food was unique & delicious. As a dive master he took us snorkeling & was a great guide. He showed us around his property & the construction he has been working on for three additional units. The location is great. Made up for the rustic accommodations.

Remote and unique area and experience away from civilisation with only the noises of the nature and wildlife. Super friendly and hospitable family who really take care of you and provide a unique experience. Very convenient and close location for diving the amazing rainbow reef!!

We loved our stay at Dolphin Bay! The staff made the visit perfect. The location is wonderful, the beach is 'right there', and we had our own little baby shark visit us each day when the tide was out. My husband enjoyed his dives very much. I went snorkeling one day with Roland and another couple and it was the most amazing snorkel trip I've ever had. The reef was stunning and there were so many fish.

We had a great stay at Dolphin Bay! Service, food, diving, location and views were all amazing! Remote location was beautiful. Accommodations were as described, basic/cabin campground feel. We loved Dolphin Bay and would highly recommend! We hope to visit again soon!

It's an excellent location, the staff was wonderful and very helpful. As a non diver I loved just chilling out, relax leaving work behind. Great to wake up in front of the ocean. Go swimming or snorkeling the reef right there.

Overall Excellence
Dolphin Bay was a tremendously great place for me and my girl! The food was maybe a little pricey but it was made up by being very very tasty and a lot more varied than other places we stayed at during our time in Fiji. Attention to detail in all areas was what really made Dolphin bay stand out. The staff and owner was super friendly and competent. I would recommend this to everyone! Cheers and many thanks from Johanna and Victor :)

Great place, great staff, great food, great snorkelling, great walks with the Great dogs, some great diving but you don't get any say about what dives you do which I think is unfair. It's like going to a restaurant , being shown the menu but then not having any choice.

nice and quiet place, best for couples
nice staff, everything well arranged, but the food was too expensive and the diving far away from what I expected, so that I did just 2 dives.

Simple accommodation, fun diving & great staff
Imagine you're a castaway on a remotes Fiji island, except with three square meals a day, fun fellow travelers and attentive staff. Don't imagine your going to have is an AC unit cranking all night and long showers. Hopefully you will have a cool breeze as you're laying in your Bure (or tent). I stayed in Turtle Bure, had a hot water shower (keep in brief), small bed fan, mosquito net over my bed and the relaxing sound of waves 50ft from my window all night! For me Dolphin Bay Divers Retreat offered great diving and plenty of time in-between to lay in my hammock, sleep & read my book. These rooms are basic - but by far my favorite place on this trip!! Thanks Viola and Team for making it special ;)
