My wife and I spent 10 nights at Blue Lagoon Resort, we had mixed thoughts about going to this Resort after reading some of the reviews, but it was the wreck diving which made up our minds to go. We have traveled to many dive resorts for the last 13 years. After arriving at Truk airport and driving on the non existent road (more pot holes than road) we were pleasantly surprised when we drove though the gate into the Resort. Our first impression was the beautifully well kept grounds with lush green lawns and palm trees. We were then greeted by the friendly staff with a cold coconut drink and in no time shown to our room. You can store your valuables in the office a safety deposit box. The Resort may be old but is very clean and comfortable. Fresh towels when the room is cleaned daily, plenty of fresh drinking water, good aircon, lots of hot running water, two double beds and a fridge in a room with plenty of space. The generator power to the Resort is switched over every six hours and cuts out for about 1-2 minutes (don't get caught in the shower as the pumps for the water stops and your in the dark). There is a TV with no antenna but who goes to watch TV when you have a beautiful view out of the window in the day time and you need a good nights sleep after an excellent days diving, but if you are desperate there is a TV in the lounge in the office. Wifi is available in the restaurant and the office lounge but depends on the time of the day and number of users. We found the staff helpful, polite, friendly and honest. The resort has a good clean restaurant with aircon and has a very good selection of food at very reasonable prices. There is a bar outside between the restaurant and the ocean which is open in the evening with a happy hour, this is a perfect place to have a drink or two and watch the sun set over the water before your evening meal. There is a small gift shop next to the office which sells souvenirs, cold beer and cool drinks. 100mts from the dive area there is a shop you can buy the basics. Opposite the dive shop is a small local coffee shop for drinks and food. At the dive shop you can buy Tshirts, hats, shorts and minor dive accessories. Outside there is a shaded area to gear up, your equipment is set up ready for you on the boat each day, there is a good wash down area for your gear after your dives and a lock up dry area. The air fill area is well maintained and kept clean giving you good clean air in the dive tanks. We found the dive boats had plenty of room and shade. The boat driver will help you gear up and will assist you in and out of the boat if needed. The boats are set up with drop lines at 6 and 9 meters and a spare tank for your safety stops. The dive guides are locals and know the wrecks inside and out, they are professional and take into consideration your capabilities and experience on each dive. Our dive guide McKenzie took us on some awesome dives which we enjoyed immensely especially "The San Francisco", "The Nippo" and "The Momokawa". The wrecks in the shallow waters have some beautiful soft coral on them "The Sankisan" is one of the best for this. To enjoy your diving listen to your guide and follow where he leads. We would like to thank the staff at the resort and the dive shop for a great holiday. Special thanks to McKenzie our dive guide.
