Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Bob and Eve will make you feel like your at home when staying at Raiders. Great food, great company with a beautiful view out over the Tulagi bay. Friendly staff and great service. The accommodation is clean and comfortable. A must do if you are coming to, or transiting through Honiara

Raiders is very accessible from Honiara, only a short boat trip away, with some superb diving and the hotel is comfortable, good dive boat and lovely food - couldn't ask for more for a weekend break. I highly recommend it. Twin Tunnels is one of my favourite dives but we did a lovely wall dive, great muck dive and they have interesting war wrecks to dive on, and lots of fish. Just great.

My husband and I stayed and dived with Raiders in Oct 2019 as part of a 5 week SCUBA vacation in the South Pacific, and this was the highlight of our trip. As soon as we stepped into the boat and listened to Bob's safety spiel, I felt safe and secure. The boat is in tip top shape, and well organized, just like Bob and Eve. Site - great little lagoon for snorkeling with giant clams, coral, and all kinds of fish. Fun to watch the local kids paddle by with their makeshift canoes. Room - simple clean tidy quiet room with comfy beds, a/c & fan. Slept really well. Food - Really good, and reasonable priced. Good portions, and the only place on our trip that we received balanced meals (carb, protein, salad, fruit) SCUBA - Amazing! Professional, organized, all equipment in good working order, a mixture of Wreck and Reef dives, some beaches, and an awesome muck dive. Bob and his capable crew took care of all our equipment at the end of each day. We will find our way back to Tulagi one day.

The facility is very nice and right on the lagoon. A beautiful place to spend some time. The food is excellent. The hosts are super and set us up with a great tour of the WW2 sites and the island. The dive operation is top notch. The boat is well equipped and the dive master does a great job. We were all very impressed. This is a place I'd love to come back and visit.

Adelaide, Australia206 contributions75 helpful votes
Well organised as involved in having 78 divers dive each day as part of SPUMS Conference. They also picked up divers fron the Breakwater Cafe Warf in Honiara. Very well equipped and comfortable dive boat with room for divers to gear up. Best dive from Honiara Raiders Hotel and Dive run by Bob and Evie. Highly professional punctual, knowledgeable with all emmergency equiptment inc EPIRB, radio, oxygen and first aid kit on board etc Twin Lava Tunnels is the best dive we did from Honiara. Black at top but light at bottom. 3m wide. Loads of squirrel fish. Then along deep drop off. Gray Reef Sharks feeding in bait in the blue. Then Black tip and white tip. Then huge marble sting ray feeding. Second dive in Catalina Seaplane. Intact. Could see the guns. Lovely snorkel on Raiders Hotel house reef. Anemone fish, pipe fish, Dotty backs and clams. Lunch at Raiders Hotel- delucious squid stir fry and beef stirfty. Menu changes daily. Would stay here rather than Honiara if returned to dive. Their cafe/ reastaurant deck and beach were spotless with no litter. They also had recycling bins and are really trying to care fir the environment.

Good morning SAMARSHALL77 and thanks so much for taking the time to review us and for the positive feedback. The week involved with the SPUMS Conference and divers was thoroughly enjoyable for us and we are glad you took the time to access the safety aspects of our small dive operation and recognised that we are doing what we can to reduce our environmental impact. The large Marble Ray feeding was certainly a memorable highlight of that dive and I am happy that we were able to showcase the Twin Tunnels Reef to you during your brief stay with us. There are plenty more pristine sites over our way to dive should you ever decide to return. Thanks again.

It is just an amazing place. Clean, safe and tidy. Very friendly staf, and run by a multi talented couple that make you feel like part of the family, and not to forget your new best friend the dog Nama. You may even get IT support. You can go hiking, kayaking, swimming and of course diving. Then relax on the veranda with a million dollar view or have a massage. I have added Tugali to my favourite places list.

Hi Mona S, thanks for the lovely feedback and review. Was nice to get you back in the dive gear again after such a long absence. It was lovely to meet you both and we are glad you enjoyed your short tay with us. Nama is fine although a little lonely now we are closed and there are no guests to escort around the island :) Hope to see you and Eva again sometime soon.
