We spent nine days at this great hotel and loved every minute. The air conditioned rooms were very comfortable with excellent bed linens, comfortable living space and a sparkling view from our oceanfront balcony! The food, the service and the personnel were all wonderful! Claudia the manager was superb and catered to our every need...including throwing a dinner for ten...

My family and I stayed 3 nights at the Resort. All our meals were excellent and the chilled jugs of sangria just delicious! The rooms were clean and comfortable and the bed was like sleeping on a giant cloud. Quite possibly the best nights sleep I've experienced whilst on holiday ever! Only downside was the attitude of the receptionist. She...

We stayed at the Garden Island for 16 nights and it was a lovely and relaxing experience. The accommodations were clean and the staff on site were so nice and welcoming. We enjoyed the meals, and they were even able to assist us with dietary restrictions. The dive center is located on site and readily available to take you to...

This is a very nice hotel which is more reasonably priced among others in the area. Dive shop and the connecting pier is just next door of your rooms so it's exceptionally convenient if you are a diver. In addition, this resort is also very close to the Rainbow Reef, so it saves the long ride out in the bumpy...

The important thing about choosing a vacation spot is knowing yourself, what is important to you and doing your research. Garden island resort is exactly what it promises, a quaint, intimate resort on the water with some of the worlds friendliest employees and fabulous diving. If you are looking for a place to sit on the beach (and not being...

I have stayed here maybe 10 times now over the years, and it is still a very nice spot, right on the beach with a dive boat operation attached. Well maintained and clean with lovely helpful staff, and very comfortable clean rooms and beds, with good aircon if required. They have a new chef and he was excellent, we had...

Bula! If you are looking for a wonderful vacation, I highly recommend the Garden Isand Resort! Great scuba diving, beautiful accommodations, great food and most of all the Fijian hospitality!

The staff truly made the difference for this resort. I've never met such lovely people who immediately remembered our names and went out of their way to make sure the room and or meals were to our liking. The room was very nice and comfortable. The dive staff was wonderful as well and took good care of me getting in...

We stayed at the Garden Island Resort from the 12th to 17th August (six nights). Both myself and my partner have travelled around the world and stayed in many places.

We were part of a group (24) who booked this dive resort a year in advance. In that time the management changed and while we had, for the most part, a very good time, it seemed that we were being nickled and dimed to death! The package was to be "all inclusive" yet, the night dive that was scheduled, suddendly...

Thank you for taking time to write such a thorough review, and we're glad to hear you enjoyed the warm Fijian hospitality. Regarding the costings, please note that some of the activities were not included in the dive package for your group and therefore additional costs would be incurred. We do have a 30minute massage available at our spa, and...
