After 5 days in grubby Honiara it was refreshing to finally reach Raiders. Warmly welcomed by Bob and Yvie, we were subsequently made to feel very comfortable during our stay. The rooms are small but easily adequate, very clean and kept that way daily. The menu was simple with 2 choices each for lunch and dinner but the food was fresh and portions were decent size. We were never left hungry. Our afternoons and evenings were spent with a beer and wine overlooking the bay from Raiders deck. Bob was a font of knowledge on the history of the area both above and below the water. He was an excellent dive guide with a safety first attitude and we were treated to some amazing dive sites which we wont soon forget. For most of our stay we were the only guests at Raiders and it was a real treat to hear both Bob & Yvies stories. Cant thank them enough for their openness & generosity and a wonderful stay at Raiders. We certainly hope to return again in the future.
Pros: Clean, spacious and open living areas. Welcoming feel.
Cons: Not much!
Location: There is a ring road around the island that you can walk, there is a local market and there are historical WW2 sites to visit.
