This isn't a spa. This is a place to nest while diving wreck mecca. We stayed a little over two weeks.
The restaurant has a nice variety and, while the sashimi is exquisite, we were surprised how often we ordered the fried chicken. mmm. The ladies who run the place are very nice and the pace is slow; remember where you are and you won't get frustrated.
Alcohol has a 50% tax added to it. You can go into town and buy beer across from the Truk Stop (a fun place with nice people - shout out to Herry!) Might make a bar bill a bit more manageable...
Get with Isiro Aisek in the dive shop to make the dive plans. Our dive master was Jongki T. and he was, in our opinion, outstanding for what our needs were. He may not talk much, but his wreck penetration skills are what's important and we always felt safe, plus he's pretty darned funny when he gets going! Shout out to Roki who ran our boat while we were all in the water.
We dove with wonderful people and made great new friends all around.
You do need to know this: sometimes UNITED AIRLINES overflies this airport. There are not that many flights in and out of here so HAVE A CONTINGENCY - I'd recommend enough space back in Guam that you don't have screwed up flight connections like we did.
