Excellent resort that caters to divers. Non-divers will enjoy the resort as well. Plenty of activities and a great pool area. The rooms were very nice and roomy. Food was a little better than other all-inclusive we have frequented. Free Wifi in the room was a great plus.. Everything is within a short walking distance. On site dive shop where the dive boats left from the resort docks. The crew were fun and attentive. The dive masters knew where all the cool things were. We got to see a lot of eels, turtles, crabs, lobsters , large groupers and sharks. Evening sunset cruise with gourmet meal and drinks was a real plus. I highly recommend this resort!

My wife and I just returned from a glorious trip on the Bilikiki where we truly enjoyed the boat and the diving. The boat is a refitted cargo vessel. That may take you aback, but it has real character and you will fall in love the spacious boat. The dive deck is very roomy with double camera tanks and two level camera table. The actual dives take place from “Tiny’s” that make for an extraordinary experience. When you pop to the surface the Tiny races you back to the boat, no waiting. The deck crew takes care of everything and all you need to do is rinse in a warm shower and hang your dive suits (if you wear them). The attention to you from the crew is the best!

The rooms are comfortable and have plenty of room to store whatever gear you want in your room. Since the voltage is 240V, you will need to take a power strip or plan to use the Bilikiki well stocked recharging room behind the pilot house. It has both 110v and 240v for those coming from anywhere in the world. There is an inside camera table for those that take lots of accessories and lenses so that you can rig your system as you like without any hassle. Each person has their own basket to hold your precious gear.

The eating arrangements were casual. Buffet style serving with great food and dining on the large deck. Eating is very healthy with many local vegetables (yummy) and low fat/salt main courses. Great custom made snacks between dives with plenty of fruit.

As for the diving, it was our first trip to the Pacific side. However, since the Bilikiki is the only boat operating in the Solomon Islands the reefs are virgin and astonishingly healthy. We saw every form of sea life we read about. Our most memorable were the Manta’s, huge schools of Barracuda, other large schools and the many varieties of Anemone Fish. We dove some of the most published photographed places in the Pacific such as those popularized by Stephen Frink (Leru Cut and others). We did not see any whales.

We meet people that were highly traveled divers that were making their 3-5th trips on the Bilikiki and were very clear as to why. We feel fortunate to have made this choice!!
