Just got back from four days on Yap for four days for an event. Stayed at hotel four nights. The hotel is centrally located with easy access to services. It is a quaint structure on the waterfront with all five rooms facing the sea. Rooms are well equipped with mini refrigerator, cable TV, and wifi. They have wood floors and...

Perfect location, next to the only two restaurants worth eating in. Quiet. Small terrace directly on the water. Spotless and just enough feature to make your stay comfortable. This is not five star but a small inn with a true nautical feel.

Charming place to stay away from the crowds. Lovely view right over the water. The rooms were designed like you were on a boat. Walking distance to the dive outfitters. Owner Don introduced himself to us which was nice. He was helpful with advice from renting a car and where to visit. Loved the little drying room. Such a clever...

The hotel is so beautiful inside, filled with wood details and fresh flowers. The room was extremely comfortable and nice. The balcony has an incredible water front view, and actually sits OVER the water. They have a hose outside for cleaning dive gear and a hot outdoor room for rapidly drying your gear. The service staff was excellent and Don...

We picked this hotel in beautiful Yap for a 2nd honeymoon on the occasion (close to it, anyway) of our 30th wedding anniversary. Everything about the place was perfect and the owner, Don, and staff went out of their way to make our stay magical. Even when we were stricken by a flu bug we brought with is from Guam,...

The inside of this guesthouse accommodation is beautiful – an old style colonial house with mahogany panelling and floors. The room was very comfortable and even included a room on the balcony with heater for drying out dive gear really quickly – very useful on our last day before our flight. The staff were super friendly and helpful and I...

Okeef's Waterfront Inn was the perfect place for my wife and I the last week of July, 2015. The accommodations were clean and very comfortable. The staff and service were excellent! The owner, Don, was around and available for consultation re: island highlights and opportunities. Even though we arrived at 1am, Jay was waiting for us to take us to...

The atmosphere was amazing- so private and at the same time so informal. The staff was so friendly. There are only 5 rooms and we received Luxe service in O'Keefe's Waterfront Inn. The rooms are classical and comfortable with excellent sea view.

Stayed at O'keefe's for about a week in May 2015. Hard to ask for more. Stayed in room 5 and it is well appointed and very comfortable. This is NOT a full-service place, so if that is what you are looking for...you may want to look elsewhere (perhaps Guam?). The staff was always friendly and mostly helpful. Great place to...

I stayed with my dive master buddies at O'Keefe's in mid-April 2015 for just over a week. As expected, O'Keefe's has not changed its quaint and comfortable rooms, lounge, bar and library. When you are here, this is a comfortable home. The Inn is quiet and comfortable, and the staff is simply great. We needed to go to a liquor...
