I recently spent a full week at the Nautilus. The amenities met all my needs and the food was great. My biggest complement to Nautilus is to their amazing staff, I was on a first name basis with them all by the time I left. All staff members went out of their way to help me however I needed. I...

The owners, Doug and Sally, are wonderful. Their staff is just as great, they're willing to do whatever they can to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. The restaurant has some delicious food as well, definitely try the fish burger with breadfruit chips!

The diving in Kosrae is what every diver wishes they could find. Although the island has regular divers traveling through, because so few people bother to get off the island-hopping plane, the underwater environment feels untouched. Of course, weather happens everywhere. But, when you can find hundreds of the most hunted fish in the world swimming around, you know you've... More

From start to finish the staff all went out of their way to ensure that our stay was hassle free and enjoyable and they passed with flying colours. The amenities were very comfortable and well serviced each day which added to the enjoyment of our stay. The location was very relaxing supported by a great restaurant, bar, pool and alfresco...

Some friends and I were going to be in the neighborhood, relatively speaking, to do some diving in Truk which got switched to Palay as Plan B after Typhoon Dolphin tore through a month or so before we were due to go. But part of the plan that stayed the same was to visit Kosrae, Micronesia afterward to experience something... More

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

Microdoug, General Manager at Kosrae Nautilus Resort, responded to this review

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
