Yap Dive Resort is on the hill over looking the Chamorro Bay. A great vacation place where it access the insights of cultural activities in the villages and diving area. The structure is designed in european design. Taste of europe in Micronesia.

Very friendly and helpful staff. I think only 3 of the rooms were rented when we were there for 3 nights. I was the only person in the pool when my husband scuba dived. Large room with wooden floors and a balcony looking at the pool. Air conditioner kept the room cool and easy to sleep at night. Good location...

The Yap Pacific Hotel is the most elegant house in Yap – but unfortunately that is it !This hotel was built by an American couple in a Victorian style with love to small details but now it is lacking paint and general maintance.

The hotel rooms are old style, and very spacious. There s no working wifi in the room, but it is adequate in reception and in the restaurant. The pluses are the staff and the dive guides, really friendly and make an extra effort to make you welcome. The negatives are be careful walking around. Most of the outside woodwork is...

I stayed one week at Yap Pacific Dive Resort. This was my second time and I was very satisfied with everything. All the staff go above and beyond the call of duty.

First we had a great time at this facility. The accommodations were very nice and clean. There is an oblivious lack of maintenance from the peeling paint to the gardens requiring landscaping. It appears as though the current management is doing the minimum required to continue operation with no thought for the future. Maintenance should not be the problem considering...

Yap Pacific Dive Resort is the best hotel in Yap. We stayed there for 7 days for the New Year and if you anyway in Yap you must be diving. Otherwise there are not too much to do there anyway. Comparing to Yap, Palau is like New York (much more modern and organised). FSM (Federated States of Micronesia) is a...

Went there for a week as a family of four (two children, 12 and 10). The place is just beautiful and stylish (both exterior and interior); having seen some other places in Yap, I dare to say that this one is the most attractive one. It is also very centrally located in Colonia. Staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. E.g.,...
