Stayed here for 7 nights in May 2014. You're here to experience the traditional way of living on the islands, like living in the nature, so don't bring the mentality of staying at a 5-star resort property with you (but the amenities were well prepared, just like what one would see at 5-star property). Other than that, with helpful and... More

Kosrae Village is one of the best kept secrets in the world. This is probably because in general Micronesia -- and Kosrae specifically -- is so hard to get to (although it's a gorgeous trip, starting either from the US via Hawaii or via Guam). But the time and effort involved are so worth it! Katrina and Bruce have built... More

This was our second time to KVR. Has changed very little in 5 years (this is a Good Thing). No one should go here that is looking for a super-luxurious hotel. These are private thatched huts on the beach, far enough away from one another that you'd never have to interface with fellow guests if you so choose. If you... More

I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay. As you pointed out - living next to the ocean leads to instant corrosion, which added to the ongoing "biodegrading" of biodegradable materials means that we have to continuously replace thatch, reed siding and sometimes even timbers. Fortunately we've got a really great crew who do just that. Equally fortunately, our... More

I booked a trip through MDA GUAM, my favorite booking agent to use for diving in the western pacific. I chose Kosrae Village because it is all built of native materials using traditional building methods. The other options I had were a hotel room in a remote tropical place. For me the choice was easy. The accomodations are a little... More

We were at the Kosrae Village Resort during the "off" season. A little slice of heaven and we couldn't imagine why it was off, but we were the only guests. We were treated and indulged as if we were only children. Bruce, Katrina and the considerable staff assured that we were well fed, libations were more than adequate and we... More

OK so I might understand the desire to go tropical and stay in a grass hut, but this place looks like it has never been cleaned and it's scary gross. It's filthy and not just because it's on the beach and has spiders and crabs. We encountered live AND dead rats and their feces on our table, termite feces raining... More

I am truly at a loss to know how to respond to this review. Let me start by explaining that we did not have any guests named Alice or from Hawaii in October, so it is very difficult to identify what problems may have occurred during this guest’s stay. There is a tiny grain of truth in this review; we... More

If you are looking for a resort that brings the island experience right to your door, then Kosrae Village is the place for you. It is very rustic, from the mosquito netting to the huts made from all natural materials, found on the island. There is electricity and hot and cold running water in the huts. The food in the...

I first went with my two kids (Alex, then 8 and David, then 17) in Dec 2000, then with a friend in Feb 2010, and most recently just this past Dec (2011). Each time, I think this is the place my neighbors are looking for - it is still "undiscovered;" people are warm, open, and welcoming; it is breathtakingly beautiful;... More

Very nice location right on the beach, great for the kids to run around, the food is excellent and the owners are very helpful and friendly. The rooms are like huts made out of palm fronds and other materials, charming but very rustic and decaying. While we were there we had a leak in the roof on a rainy night,... More
