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. Rooms are spacious, with balcony and comfortable beds but without any modern features. There is WIFI in... More

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... More

YAP Our first official stop, on our around the world adventure with Star Alliance. The flights in and out of here where limited, so we where able to make quick great friends. Dieter, the hands on owner, and manager was extremely help full and enjoyable to be around. We loved the entire staff and made the right choice in our... More

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. I went diving one day and all my needs we're carefully met. Attention to detail and safety with friendly smiles. The large rooms with hardwood floors are very... More

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... More

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... More

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.,... More

When I think how remote this is from everything else in the world, I have to say this is truly remarkable. It is a beautiful property. The staff is incredibly friendly. The food--fresh fish three times a day!!!--is incredible. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. When I thought the dining service could have been a bit more prompt, my... More

Stayed here for a few days during Super Typhoon Haiyan and even tried my first dive. What a great friendly place to relax, unwind and have a great time. The front desk staff, Rox, Cheche, the restaurant staff, Sambrenia, Jay, Laurie, the Dive Master Charles all made my stay PERFECT. Thanks for a life time wonderful time and experience.
