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.
