Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Famous ‚Blue Hole‘ (snorkeling highly recommended! You can get gear at the resort) at your front door, Lelu ruins in walking distance, bank next door. All rooms have A/C. You can also rent a car from there or have tours arranged (fishing is really fun, even if you‘ve never done it). Using the kayaks to explore the mangroves behind the resort is free. People are super nice and I loved the food, THANK YOU!

My wife and I stayed 3 nights, met at KSA Airport by the hotel’s driver at 1:30PM, and joined 1 other for the 12km van ride southeast in the pouring rain. At reception, the owner copied our passports and guided us along a garden walk in front of sturdy concrete block rooms with white tile floors, all accessed through glass sliding doors. #13 was sparkling clean with 2 doubles with colorful spreads, desk and chair, then closet, sink with hot pot and bathroom at the back. A housekeeper brought a large pitcher of drinking water and a floor towel. All was fine until we discovered the sink wouldn’t drain and there was no micro, so the owner moved us to a 2 bedroom apartment. # 17 had a full kitchen(large refrigerator, full oven and micro), sink/shower and separate toilet, perfect for us using only 1 bedroom. The silent wall AC in the living room was appreciated as was the room’s secure and strong WIFI. We swam in the lovely cool pool and ate at their restaurant with its extensive American menu that’s popular with the locals. The owner had Robert drive us to the well stocked Ace Grocery, 1 mile south on Lelu Island; it’s closed tomorrow, Sunday. It would be a nice walk without the heavy rain. This friendly hotel was the perfect location for our stay which included airport transfers, nice accommodation and an accommodative owner to suit our needs.

The Nautilus Resort is a must-stay if you find yourself in the beautiful island of Kosrae. I really enjoyed the camaraderie built with other guests, where there weren't the many distractions of modern life. Instead, I happily enjoyed deep conversations with hotel staff and other guests, hanging out by the pool in a well-appointed patio area. When I needed to, I would return to my room to escape the heat and humidity, and take advantage of the air con. 10/10 recommend, can't wait to go again!

We stayed at Kosrae Nautilus Resort this past June for a week of sightseeing and diving. Josh is a great host and took care of the details for most any request we had. The restaurant has very good food and service. Josh coordinated several outings that required local guides and everything went off without a hitch. Our group included both snorkelers and divers, adults and children. All of our dives were guided by Josh himself and we always had marvelous conditions and felt very safe. We actually had an incident where Josh's rescue skills were put the test and he reacted quick, calm and decisively. We do plan on returning to Kosrae and would not consider staying anywhere else.

Did a solo dive trip here. Super friendly staff. Rooms are simple but clean and quite comfortable. Remember this is a remote island not a Hilton Resort. But thoroughly enjoyed myself and would def stay here again.

Very nice staff and fantastic diving. I stayed at the Kosrae Nautilus Resort for a few days of diving. The staff was fantastic, especially Josh and Salik! The diving was fantastic, although they had a small problem with the boat, they made up for it by doing 3 dives the next day. I would stay at this location again if I get to Kosrae again.

Beautiful grounds in the heart of Kosrae. Excellent resort with great food. I would recommend this hotel. There are limited options on the island yet this hotel was still clean and well kept. The staff are very friendly. Josh, the owner was so helpful with recommendations on places to see and things to do.

Overall I would recommend this hotel and I would stay in it on my next visit to Kosrae. There are only two reasonable place for tourist to stay at Kosrae. Nautilus and Pacific Treelodge. As such my review is relative to what you can get here and not to what you can get elsewhere in the world. On of the main advantages of the hotel is the swimming pool. It is the only one on the island and provides a center place to hangout on the empty hours you have after you are done exploring the ocean. The pool is about 12mX6m (see attached panorama) with extremely clean water. I suspect that the weather are purified with electrostatic system with zero chlorine. It’s a pleasure opening the eyes in the water and standing below the small waterfall. In front of the hotel you got the blue hole used for snorkeling during high tide. The hostel is much more condense with about 4 ground rooms at each building. (The Treelodge is spread around a large area in 2 rooms buildings). So this hotel is better if you like some company around and Treelodge is for you if you value your privacy and isolation. Both hotels provides decent restaurants and are in fact he only options for you. Since the two hotels are only one 600 betters a part you can walk between the two hotels/restaurants. Both places offer scuba diving services with a good dive master. Overall remember that Kosrae main advantage is its isolation and lack of tourist who destroy its reefs. This has the other side of not having much to do here beside the ocean activities.

Excellent resort. In the resort there is the only swimming pool of the island, the beach is just 50 metres on the other side of the road. If you ask in advance (two days before you arrive), the management can organize several tours, e.g. Lelu ruins, island round tour (eastern half of the island), several hikes (I hiked to Menke ruins), a visit in the Kosrae Museum. Also diving tours can be organized. Thanks for your support, Josh!

Had to stay due to change in travel plans. Best detour ever! Very remote and primitive island, not the manicured jungle of Hawaii. Has actual ancient ruins and uncrowded beach. Nautilus is by a bay, has kayaks and snorkeling gear, a decent restaurant and easy walking distance to the local bank. The proprietor is an Australian, very friendly and willing to entertain, show you the island or lend reef boots so you can swim the blue hole. Internet is weak but adequate, shower was also weak but this is a remote environment and everything except the shower was better than expected. Would definitely go again.
