ESA is one of those restaurants that is best at certain parts of the day. For ESA, that is generally breakfast, the prices are average and some meals are quite good. They have recently slimmed down their menu. They have some of the best omelettes on the island, particularly the Spanish Omelette if your looking for something tasty and filling....

I usually dont give 4 stars to a 2 stars Hotel, but this one was different. The hotel itself is not a fancy resort, a very basic place to stay for a week or a shorter period of time. What it makes it special is the service provided by the staff. Attitude again -even in the most hidden paradise on...

I stayed for a few days on a business trip. The hotel is located right on the bay, so the rooms have good views. The rooms are quite basic, but clean. The bed was comfortable. The air conditioners are wall type, so a bit noisy and only just enough to cool the room. There are TV's, but there is only...

The motel-style resort is centrally located in Colonia and situated on a water front lot. Most rooms are large and have water views. The downstairs restaurant is decent and also affordable. Spotty yet free wifi. Free airport pick-up and drop off even late at night. Cons: no kettle in the room. The best quality of the hotel are the staff....

I didn't stay here, but I sure ate here... a lot. They have really great breakfast specials that pretty much fills you up way after lunch. I always went for their grilled fish because it just tasted clean and fresh. Accompanying sides were also good (no soggy or mushy rice here). Had a beautiful view of the calm lagoon-- just...

When you look for a great hotel you want affordable, quality, cleanliness, service, friendly, and helpful, this hotel had them all. The owner Debbie even gave us a ride from the airport at 4am in the morning because all her drivers had gone home and she wanted to help us out. The hotel restaurant view looked out over the bay...

“No tips about the rooms but if you are looking for great souvenirs made from YAP there is a gal that works at the library in town named Emily that has great prices and makes most of the stuff sold at most of the shops around but when you go directly to her she gives you her discounted pricing. Have fun and tell her Larry from Sacramento sent you.”
  • wonderful view as you eat in the restaurant.
  • beautiful terrace to relax in.
