When I think how remote this is from everything else in the world, I have to say this is truly remarkable. It is a beautiful property. The staff is incredibly friendly. The food--fresh fish three times a day!!!--is incredible. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. When I thought the dining service could have been a bit more prompt, my...

Stayed here for a few days during Super Typhoon Haiyan and even tried my first dive. What a great friendly place to relax, unwind and have a great time. The front desk staff, Rox, Cheche, the restaurant staff, Sambrenia, Jay, Laurie, the Dive Master Charles all made my stay PERFECT. Thanks for a life time wonderful time and experience.

Just spent seven nights here, for diving. I was the only person at the resort! The staff were absolutely lovely and spoilt me! They drove me to the supermarket and showed me around Colonia. The aircon didn't work in the first room I was given, so they moved me immediately, nothing was too much trouble. Ate at the restaurant a...

Just got back from spending a week on the Island of Yap. We had six days of diving and a great cultural experience. We stayed at the Yap Pacific Dive Resort in Colonia. Colonia is the "big" town on the Island of Yap. What that means as it relates to Yap is you can walk anywhere you want to go...

The hotel was great! Sleepy with a great view. Breakfast was fantastic and included in the price of the room. Pros The ac was very cold in the room, which is amazing because the humidity is very burdensome in Yap. You can walk to town. There is a bay to walk/run around in the morning and afternoon.

This was my 3rd trip to Yap and my 1st time staying here. I found the hotel to be just perfect. The staff is extremely helpful and the rooms are absolutely lovely. The restaurant is equally nice, the staff is so great, and the food scrumptious. There's a nice pool area, too. But the best part of this place is...

This is a lovely hotel! The staff were all welcoming and friendly. It's a short walk, maybe 5 minutes to the water. I ate at the YPD restaurant most of the time I was there, and thought it was fine. I was on a package group snorkeling trip, so I didn't see their menu prices. My highlight, besides seeing manta...

We LOVED our stay at Yap Pacific Dive Resort (YPDR). Thanks to the whole crew! Dieter and the Dive crew (Mike, John, Charles) were fantastic. Our land tour by Tamag was awesome.

The staff of Pacific Dive Resort did do their share to make our holiday an unforgetable experience. Although we were only two divers, they still took us to all the nice places.
