This hotel is 4 star plus. Staff are friendly, rooms are spacious and clean, and the restaurant service is good. The restaurant has a reasonable range of meals at slightly above average prices. The meals are of a good standard. Room overlooking the bay are great as you can sit out on your deck and relax with a drink and the sea breeze. Bathrooms and bedroom are of a good standard without being flash. Internet in the rooms would have been useful, however there is free internet in the lobby. A great bar on the top deck of the small sailing ship anchored to the hotel. All in all a very unique and comfortable stay.
Best dive joint I’ve ever used. The hotel is right on the water so easy to stumble out in the morning onto the dive boats and zip out to the sites. The schooner anchored in front of the hotel has a free breakfast buffet in the AM and a restaurant and bar on top for dinner and they brew their own beer. Room was large with strong aircon and very decent wifi considering the location. Everything in town including the supermarket is within easy walking distance and hardly any boonie dogs. The resort is a very well oiled operation and everyone from the front desk to the dive guides are helpful and very laid back. Will def be back
This is one of the most customer friendly places we’ve been. A small family owned resort in a tiny Micronesian island, they have created a place visitors can feel like home and divers can explore the beauty Yap has to offer. Given Yap is so hard to get to, it was much appreciated that they handle all aspects of the trip other than flights. Staff are super friendly, dive boats and equipment are very high quality and well maintained. Resort is clean and very comfortable. Yap isn’t for everyone given its unique and remote characteristics but if you come to Yap you should only stay and dive here. For anyone with a passion for sea life, the trip is worth the effort.
This is my second visit to Yap and the Manta Ray Bay Resort (1st time was 2017 during the 11th annual Manta Fest) and this time I brought my dive club (6 total) to experience one of the best Dive Resorts I've ever stayed at. If you've traveled around SE Asia like I have, you know how much pollution, trash etc is often found int he water. There are great dive spots in Indonesia and Philippines, but trash is always an issue. Not so in Yap, The natives truely care for their waters and island and even in the most remote locations inland you will not find a single piece of trash on the side of the road. Waters are pristine, viz almost limitless sometimes. Tons of sharks, Manta rays and even a good number of nudibranch to see. The resort itself is world class. Clean, spacious. They have a room set up for over a dozen people to set ui their cameras, charge batteries and maintain their rigs. Their unique 2 mast wood ship moored by their pool serves as their dining area and bar! SO COOL! Yes, its hard to get to Yap, but the most remote places are often the best for diving! Its worth the trip! They have one of the best staffs too. By day 1 EVERYONE knows your name!…
I love the staff here. Everyone is so nice and happy to help out with anything you need. There is an excellent camera/gear room right next to each other and the dock. The dive masters and boat crew did an excellent job as well and very knowledgeable of the area. This is my second time here and I'm sure it won't be my last!!!
