The Pathways hotel is a nice familiar resort in the typical local style. Its a beautiful place.The native owners and the employees are very friendly. We will visit the resort in the next two years again.

Great Trip. Our second stay. We first fell in love with this location in 2011. Even though the economy of Yap has suffered the past few years, the Pathways strives to accomodate our every need. This Family owned business went out of their way to make both our trips pleasant, comfortable and stress free. Even thought the accomodations are basic,... More

In January 2013 we visited Micronesia and Palau for 4 weeks. Yap was a highlight of our tour. Unfortunately we had bad luck with our hotel. Because of the good critics on Internet we decided for the Pathways Hotel. As we arrived on 6th January 2013 at 0:45 in the night, we were shocked about the bungalow. The bedsheet and... More

The staff is very helpful and friendly, the cleaness is really ok and the atmosphere feels authentic. The A/C was not that great but in combination with the fan it was absolutely ok. I would really recommend this place

We were rerouted to this island in 2009. The plane doesn't go out for another 3 days and we have no clue where we are. This is the hotel that was recommended to us. The hotel have no luxury TV, Internet or anything like that. The place looks like a hut but inside its modern and classic at the same... More

This is such a special place. Not just because of the beautiful cottages with an astonishing view, but also because of the extremely friendly staff, the good food and the whole atmosphere. Don’t forget to have the local dinner one time. We had an unforgettable time at this place. Colonia is small, so everything is in walking distance. This is... More

There are only a little hotels in YAP and we have been in a Bamboo Cottage with aircon. Aircon is the only luxery. No TV, no Telefon, no Radio, but the price was high. Price and Quality is not ok. Our cellphone was not working because no roaming, but this is not a problem of the hotel. The rooms are... More

The Pathways consists of cottages on a hillside, set in beautiful green surrondings, which makes it very cosy and charming. Everything you need is within walking distance, but seriously there isn´t much to offer. This island is exceptionally quiet, so it´s not for restless souls, but for a romantic weekend, The Pathways would be recommendable. I stayed here for three... More

I have stayed in the "Guest Hut", which is a budget room located in the building, where also the reception is (the reception is on the ground floor). It costs 50 USD, which is a real bargain and have had everything I needed, including air-con and bathroom. Yap is a very peaceful and relaxed island and Pathways provide great service.... More

We stayed for 4 days/5 nights.Locally (family) owned and operated, the Pathways is a charming hotel, going to some rough time right now due to the slow economy (both local and global). It is fair to say that the hotel is past is prime shape and in need of some remodeling since the thatch roof bungalows and wooden pathways have... More
