Snorkeling paradise
Reading a mixture of reviews, I still decided to stay there for 2 nights due to the ability to snorkel even at low tide, which is not possible in many other locations. This is also probably nearly on par or the 2nd best snorkelling after Mantaray Island resort on Yasawa islands, as both have marine reserves. When I arrived, I was the only guest staying, then the next day another couple arrived. It is definitely a pleasant change from large hotels on Denarau island or large island resorts. It is great to swing in hammock looking at the beautiful lagoon and drinking coconut water. The snorkelling is pretty good with plenty of fish, corals and occasional white tip shark or turtle. It is a nice hike to the top of the hill (do it early after breakfast, as it is hot on a sunny day) with views of the south part of Yasawa islands. The accommodation is basic (with occasional lizard getting into bure, which is painted/decorated in Fijian style) and there is no choice of meals, but food is cooked fresh. It is great stargazing. At night in beachfront bure, you hear a gentle swell of the ocean. Thus, if you are not after a 5 star resort with TV, but after peace and quite of a Pacific island, then this place is for you.The staff in this resort are all very nice.

Great Yasawa Island Location
This was the most amazing trip I've had and staying at Botaira was definitely the way to go for me. The staff were awesome, food was delicious, the resort was well kept and accommodations comfortable and clean. Kayaking and snorkeling available and beautiful. I highly recommend taking the mountain way sunrise hike. Definitely hope to be back one day.

Great staff made disappointing resort memorable
Exceptional warm and caring staff made this a memorable stay. Resort run down, very few guests, Premium Ocean View Bure was really a garden view, and definitely not Premium. Reef off beach sadly decimated and exposed at low tide. Did not live up to advertisement of superb snorkelling off beach with magnificent corals etc. Saving grace: snorkelling boat trip to glorious reef off shore and lovely Fijian staff who did so much with the little they had, to make this a memorable experience.

Great Location not 3.5 star rating
Great location. Nice beach and snorkeling steps from your beachfront bure. During our stay we had no power for the first 2 days of our holiday and were moved 3 times from bure 3 (1 night) bure 2 (1 night) bure 6 (4 nights). They have a few maintenance issues. Bure3: Wasp nest (at least 20 wasps in bure even though we had the door closed at all times. No water. Not sure about the fan and refrigerator, as power was out. The Honeymoon bure 2 has a broken taped up front window and damaged flyscreen. Ceiling fan not working. Toilet leaking. No privacy (curtains). My husband had to ask the manger on a daily basis to turn the water on. The power is turned off between 12-6amish. It is variable. When the power is off, it gets really hot in the bures especially if there is no sea breeze. May I suggest, if Botaira really needs to turn the generator/power off, to do so during the morning, so at least the ceiling fans can work all night or embrace battery technology. The food was ok for us. We are not fussy eaters or have any special dietary requirements. Some of the staff are friendly and helpful, others say yes and then walk off and do nothing. Service was average to poor. If you want something done, speak to the onsite manager directly or do it yourself. It appeared the snorkeling equipment hadn’t been cleaned . Tired looking resort. We can't call it a 3.5 star. We lowered our expectations to a 2 star rating, then relaxed and made the most of it (as if backpacking).
