Doug and Sally are excellent hosts, genuinely wants to ensure you have a good time. Doug was so helpful with advice, especially regarding snorkelling around the blue hole. We also really enjoyed kayaking through the mangroves, which is free for hotel guests. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. We requested room 1 having read the review that mentioned...

Microdoug, General Manager at Kosrae Nautilus Resort, responded to this review

We enjoyed taking with you about your extended trip round the world. Thanks for pointing out these things, we have remedied where we can. The guests that do receive the free wifi in room 1 have laptops. I have an iPad too, and they don't have good built in antennas. You are very correct about the height of the shower...

My husband and I chose to visit Kosrae Nautilus Resort as part of our honeymoon and we couldn’t be happier with our choice! We are both scuba instructors and we were blown away by the diving around Kosrae. Clear blue water and the most enormous hard corals we have ever seen, plus sharks, turtles, rays and a school of hundreds...

We were picked up by a van from the resort from the airport, as we were on a one-week package that included food, non-alcoholic drinks (more about this later), room, and two boat dives per day for five days. Except for arrival and departure days, just the last full day was a non-dive day. Make sure to bring your own...

Hi Nancy, unfortunately we didn't get to meet you when you were here, as we were away on vacation too. We'd have liked to have personally thanked you for helping out with our solar panel crowdfunding project, by purchasing your room and diving package. It's all installed now, and providing 18% of our electricity each month. Thanks for pointing out...

We took a week's diving vacation here: I wish I had made it two (and not only because of the lengthy flights to get there from San Diego). Kosrae itself is the easternmost island and state in the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM - I just love that acronym, I was looking out for pirates the whole time!) and is...

In my opinion, this is the best, most centrally located place to stay in Kosrae. I ended up staying 3 weeks (instead of 2) because I was having so much fun. DIVING: I can't imagine a more spectacular place to dive. I went 8 times and each dive was like a National Geographic documentary. The nice thing about the Nautilus...

I recently went to Kosrae for work and spent 2 weeks at Kosrae Nautilus Resort. Doug and Sally, the owners, couldn't have been more friendly, helpful and accommodating. They were able to arrange trips and activities at the last minute, which allowed us to fit in some fun around our ever changing work schedule. They also kindly surprised one of...

KNR was a great spot to stay in Kosrae. There's not a lot of excitement on the island which is why you travel here to dive so the hotel was a nice place to sit by the pool, enjoy some good food and rest between dives. You can walk to a few places not too far away but there's really...

A really well run, efficient and knowledgable Resort - quite a rarity in the FSM and Doug, his family and all the teams (Hotel and Dive) should be rightfully proud of their involvement. Lovely clean rooms, delicious foods and highly recommended as a place to get an introduction to Diving (as I did) with plenty of repeat customers. The diving...

Very nice people both the owners and the islanders. This was my very first diving experience and it could not have been better. Diving was on my bucket list so I got certified at age 62 and went on a five week trip with my non diving wife. Out of all of the islands we visited this was the best...

Very nicely kept family run affair. The only bad bit first Wifi works but at low speed The television worked with more that a few channels. This is the best hotel on the island unless you want Eco hotel. But looking at the other options, it is not too bad. Rooms are well located. The complete island is very safe....
