Great staff. Good service. Prime location. And an unspoiled south sea island! This is the place. Spent a week here and wished we could have stayed longer. Decent snorkeling practically on our doorstep. Really good snorkeling outside the reef for a reasonable fee. He opted for the resort scuba and raved about it. I just snorkeled some more. Kayaking through... More

We spent two weeks at the Nautilus and were once again treated with incredible hospitality by Doug and Sally, the owners of the property. This is a wonderful place to stay if you are looking for customer service, friendliness of the staff and cleanliness. We dove with Doug and his team as well. The visibility of the water was astounding... More

This was our second time visiting Kosrae and staying at the Nautilus. We love the Nautilus. Our room was clean, spacious and very comfortable. The pool area was a nice place to relax and cool off. The restaurant was great. Fresh fish served in a variety of yummy ways and the thick homemade bread used for french toast were our... More

If you are looking for the place in paradise, Nautilus is it. Older structure but nice and clean with air condition. Best on Island. Good food and diving. The staff very friendly and helpful. The hotel is across the street from the ocean.

Doug was a fantastic host but his restaurants lack of food let him down a bit. I understand food supply in the islands is in frequent but it was unfortunate to find a number of items on the menu un-orderable. Doug diving knowledge on the island is excellent, and his gear looks to be in pretty good shape but the... More

It's no secret that Kosrae is remote, and this requires us to order our frozen food 6 weeks before it's arrival. The month before your visit turned into our busiest since 9/11, and we had no way of planning for that. We grow some of our own vegetables and have very fresh delicious local fish 99% of the time. We... More

Doug and Sally are excellent hosts, genuinely wants to ensure you have a good time. Doug was so helpful with advice, especially regarding snorkelling around the blue hole. We also really enjoyed kayaking through the mangroves, which is free for hotel guests. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. We requested room 1 having read the review that mentioned... More

We enjoyed taking with you about your extended trip round the world. Thanks for pointing out these things, we have remedied where we can. The guests that do receive the free wifi in room 1 have laptops. I have an iPad too, and they don't have good built in antennas. You are very correct about the height of the shower... More

My husband and I chose to visit Kosrae Nautilus Resort as part of our honeymoon and we couldn’t be happier with our choice! We are both scuba instructors and we were blown away by the diving around Kosrae. Clear blue water and the most enormous hard corals we have ever seen, plus sharks, turtles, rays and a school of hundreds... More

We were picked up by a van from the resort from the airport, as we were on a one-week package that included food, non-alcoholic drinks (more about this later), room, and two boat dives per day for five days. Except for arrival and departure days, just the last full day was a non-dive day. Make sure to bring your own... More

Hi Nancy, unfortunately we didn't get to meet you when you were here, as we were away on vacation too. We'd have liked to have personally thanked you for helping out with our solar panel crowdfunding project, by purchasing your room and diving package. It's all installed now, and providing 18% of our electricity each month. Thanks for pointing out... More

We took a week's diving vacation here: I wish I had made it two (and not only because of the lengthy flights to get there from San Diego). Kosrae itself is the easternmost island and state in the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM - I just love that acronym, I was looking out for pirates the whole time!) and is... More
