O'Keefe's is a very special place to stay--a real gem of a hotel in Yap and the whole FSM! A small, cozy inn with all rooms directly overlooking the peaceful waters of the harbour, it is also in the center of Colonia and a few steps from restaurants, shopping, and the grounds of the Yap Living History Museum. But what really stands out is the hotel's character and attention to detail throughout. It is gorgeously designed, full of historical photographs from Yap and the colonial days of David O'Keefe (directly across from the historical O'Keefe's canteen), and with the comforts of the waterfront lounge, outside courtyard, relaxing library, and room balconies on the water. Room are classy, very clean, comfortable, and full of interesting detail. Staff are attentive, friendly, and very helpful for visitors. As a cozy inn, O'Keefe;s offers a personalised and very pleasant experience, with attention to culture and history on Yap that really stands out in the FSM. I had a very peaceful and pleasant stay here for 12 days in September and I'm looking forward to returning.…
I recently had the pleasure of spending three nights here, and I am so glad that I picked O’Keefe’s. What a little gem. If Yap is on your radar then you probably already have a sense of the limited accommodation options one finds on remote Pacific islands. Yap is no different. There are really only a handful of decent options, and after a lot of research I picked this spot. Colonia center is tiny, so the 5 main places to stay are all within walking distance of each other. O’Keefes is full of character, atmosphere and has real charm. Rooms are super comfy and clean. No, they are not massive, but they have all the space you need. They have just 5 rooms, all of which overlook the water. The rooms have all that you need, from wifi and a safe and wonderful a/c to all toiletries and TVs. There is a well stocked bar and the staff can assist with any request. No request was too much. A great breakfast is offered in their cafe/restaurant across the road. For dinner you can walk to all of the other central hotels. If you are here for diving then you are just 20 steps away from Manta Bay without the price tag. So, easy access. You can walk to everything - open air museum, main supermarket and smaller markets, harbour, etc. You do not need a car if you stay here, as they will handle your airport transfers. If you want to take an excursion anywhere then they’ll help out. I really wish that I had been able to stay longer. Stay here and you will have no regrets!…
This charming, beautiful hotel is a true gem. Centrally located with all amenities and access to town, the hotel itself seems to be an oasis of luxury and calm as soon as you set foot inside the lobby. Rooms are thoughtfully appointed and very comfortable, staff are friendly—the entire experience is blissful. I can’t wait to stay there again.
I really enjoyed my stay here from the airport pickup after midnight and porter who carried my bags right into my room and took my breakfast order explaining they would check me in later once I'd had a good rest. The room was brilliant, like the hotel it was full of colonial charm and with well thought out modern updates from the ensuite to the minibar, safe and cable tv all crafted into the woodwork paneling and discretely tucked away behind paintings or wall units. The mini balcony over the water from my room also had a dive locker to dry wet suits all cleverly set up in a cupboard dried by the a/c output fan. A lot of thought has been put into this hotel to maintain its authenthicity while bringing it into the 21st century. The wifi speed was excellent and I had no trouble skyping my family in the Southern hemisphere. This is an old building with wooden floors so be sure to remove your shoes, yes some floorboards creak and there are step changes in the floor from the lobby to the bar and back up to the rooms but these things along with the library all added to the hotel's charm. Note the hotel is small with only a few rooms so is quite quiet, there is no pool or restaurant in the hotel but you just go across the road and can charge your meal to the room (just check with the front desk which restaurant as there are at least three cafe's across the road next to each other). I enjoyed walking from this hotel around town it is quiet and convenient but you will need to hire a vehicle if you want to go outside of Colonia. If you are looking for a good sleep in a quiet hotel then you've found your place.…
Lovely place to stay. Old world charm. Wonderful bedrooms and a lovely private bar. Don and staff always ensure you are well looked after. It is in the centre of town so walking distance to most places , and the rooms look out over the water front. Many thanks. Stuart IOM
This boutique hotel will be a beautiful place to enjoy Yap from. Comfortable bedding, quaint decor, peaceful and attentive staff. This experience truly is the whole package. They make you feel cared for and appreciated.
I had the most wonderful stay at O'Keefe's Waterfront Inn. You can tell the owner has an eye for detail. Rooms are small but charming. Enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or glass of wine on your own balcony, right off the water. At night the waves lapping against the shore will lull you to sleep. The best detail is the dive closet has warm air blowing that dry's your gear. You don't ever have to get into a cold rash guard from the day before.
We stayed here instead of Manta Ray Bay next door and were glad we did. The rooms are small, but clean and comfortable. Each room has a balcony right on the water. There is a hose to wash your dive gear and a closet to dry it on the balcony. The staff are very friendly.
O'Keefe's Waterfront Inn is the single most comfortable and inviting of accommodations in Yap. The five spotless bedrooms, all overlooking the Pacific, are designed for comfort and privacy. O'Keefe's offers easy access to local amenities. The staff is attentive, caring and immediately responsive to guest needs regarding food, transportation and shopping. This five room gem includes a comfortable and quiet on-site library! I'm looking forward to my next visit to Yap and a return to O'Keefe's.
O'Keefe's was certainly a treasure in Yap. The decor was unique and personal. You could tell the love that went into every detail in there! Room was excellent with a perfect little balcony. It almost felt as if you were on a ship on the water with the dark wood beams and proximity to the water. You could also hear the gentle lap of the water all night long. Staff was accommodating and friendly (they even went so far to help us when we didn't realize there was a departure tax of 20$ USD per person at the airport and really saved us there!) A perfect getaway hotel in a truly unique place.
