Stayed at Truk Stop for 12 days of diving over Christmas. There are 2 parts to this place...
The dive side is sensational run by Rob and Cindy we dived for 9 days on closed circuit rebreathers. Everything we needed was provided including all gases and Sorb at good pricing. The diving was sensational and they just let is do our own thing but always accompanied is on the dives of we wanted a tour of any of the wrecks the dive staff always carried our gear and helped us anyway they could. Plenty of praise here for the operation.
The hotel is ok the whole place needs some money spent on it. The beds are clean but old and uncomfortable, the rooms general cleanliness was fair but no attention had been paid to them in some time. The restaurant and staff friendliness really let the place down the food was poor to average with little choice. Buffett lunches and dinners meant you had to eat what was provided and could not order anything else. The one saving grace is the on site bakery.
Overall we had a tops time at Truk Stop but would not recommend the hotel to anyone other than divers looking for some of the best wrecks in the world.
