The Blue Lagoon has a nice location and pleasant grounds. The reason to be here is to dive - none other. The rooms are basic and only functionally maintained. The carpets, bedding, pillows and towels are old and in poor condition. The bathroom is sufficient, but hot water is unreliable. Be sure to ask to see multiple rooms. Some are in better condition than others, and stay upstairs. It's safer - and the high ceilings make the rooms seem larger. The food is basic with a menu that is too large and ambitous. They did not have fresh vegetables or salad during our stay. It's not their fault, as it's all tied to the timing of shipments to Weno. Nevertheless, the food gets tiring. On the plus side, the staff is always pleasant and responsive. We particulalry liked the restaurant crew. WiFi is available in the lobby and restaurant, but is slow (but sufficient for it's purpose). The dive shop and operation is good. They have multiple small boats, so there is not risk of diving in a huge crowd. In fact, it was just the two of us and our dive guide, Sesto, the entire time. Boats trips are short and there is safe equipment storage at the shop. Of course, the diving is amazing, so it's well worth the trip. From what we saw, the live aboards are much more expensive, very crowded and move less than advertised. While the Blue Lagoon is no Four Seasons, it is a serviceable option for Chuuk. Some minor investment in new bedding, pillows and towels would go a long way to making BLR a decent stop.
