Reviews for Beqa Lagoon Resort
We had a great time staying at Beqa Lagoon Resort. Our garden view room was graced with a beautiful koi pond with water lilies. The room was clean and spacious with two beds (king and queen-sized) as well as a lounging area. The food was very good. Breakfast buffet offered fresh fruits and vegetables as well as eggs, meats, etc. Omelets and individual orders were available on request. Lunch and dinner offered chicken, beef, fish and vegetarian choices. Presentation was excellent. Portions may be a bit light for some big eaters or hungry divers, but a sandwich menu is available at the bar between meals. For us the best feature at BLR were the shark dives which was a unique opportunity to see very large sharks up close and not feel like our lives were endangered. A rare opportunity not to be missed. We had some excellent reef dives as well. All of the staff at BLR were all pleasant, always helpful. The dive and boat crew were especially accommodating as I needed a lot of help when it came to diving. Beqa Lagoon Resort is a very good value. We had a great time.

The resort has a new manager Wayne- a new broom sweeps clean as they say. Wonderful staff- really welcoming, friendly and solicitous. Food- very good options for all our meals and plenty of food- loved those deserts! Every meal served meat fish or vegetarian. The dive/boat crew were professional and efficient. While the dive boats are older they are entirely suitable for divers and their gear. Sites were varied, including two wrecks, and of course two shark dives- the highlight of our diving experiences. All in all a fantastic week's holiday

The staff are the standout of the resort. I voraciously read the TripAdvisor reviews before we came here, and I was impressed to see that they either addressed or were in the process of addressing every issue that had come up in past reviews. They made sure that we knew that, if we had any issues, we should tell them immediately so they could remedy them. The food was delicious and plentiful - I usually walked away totally stuffed. The dive shop is in the process of replacing their older stuff, so points for that. The dive masters were fantastic (especially since this was our first post-certification trip and we were nervous!) on every single dive, especially the shark dives. I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend the shark dives; they're a once in a lifetime experience, and you feel completely safe the entire time. There's a board that lists all of the activities you can do each day if you're not diving, though I personally preferred to chill on the pool/beach loungers after each day's dive. We had one of the standard bures in the koi pond area, and I couldn't stop taking pictures of the lushness around our bure. The AC was great! My friend also did the extra trip with kayaks through the mangroves which was beautiful and serene. Overall, it was a totally amazing experience; if we had any complaints, it would have only been because we didn't bring them up to the staff. Vinaka!

There are so any great things about Beqa island and the Beqa lagoon resort. The biggest strength is the staff and their willingness to do whatever is needed to help and assist people to enjoy their stay. The staff were more than willing to make adjustments and changes to help us and make our stay safe based on a special needs issue in our group . These included having extra staff to help us to access activities, and to feel safe, for example, we had a staff member come snorkeling on the house reef . The staff also made adjustments to activities, such as taking us to the village in the boat, so we didnâ€™t have to walk, and made adjustments to things in the room to ensure comfort and safety. We chose this resort because we saw a Nat Geo documentary on how Beqa island still has villages which are fairly traditionally and the people still engage in traditional practices, such as fire walking. It was great to have cultural activities each night, and the staff and villagers performing these ceremonies were enthusiastic and the experience was authentic, rather than staged. The house reef is great and really colourful- rivals the GBR. We went with our adult kids and they were well catered for. We loved how the resort was small, cosy and all the staff and other visors felt like a big family by the end.

Stayed at Beqa Lagoon Resort June 24-29, 2017. The upside is that all the local staff do everything to make you feel welcome. As user reviews are important to me in selecting resorts, I want to share some issues we had. We stayed in a Koi Pond bure. The setting was nice, but the bure is showing its age. Our biggest issue was the lack of water pressure. The shower was little more than a fast drip. After two cold showers, I found out there is hot water. Controlling the temperature was difficult at best. Perhaps things are better in the Ocean Front bures, but not sure. Not the fault of the resort, but we hardly saw the sun. Our driver commented on the way to the resort from Lautoka that we were headed for the rainy side of the island. Keep that in mind when planning your trip. The dive masters were good and friendly, but operations were a bit disorganized. A couple of times, our dives were delayed as divers were shuffled from boat to boat, tanks were not loaded on the correct boats, and general disarray. However, one of the things that drew us to Beqa was the shark dive. Awesome! We did the shark dive on two of our four days. the reef dives were ok, but the shark dive is unique; especially having huge tigers swim within a few feet! We attributed the delays to the fact we were on "Fiji time" and did not let it bother us. To the Beqa staff, bula! To the facility, beware. There are nicer, more beautiful resorts in fiji.
