We came to this hotel from The Village on Pohnpei and were very much hoping it would be similar. We checked out after one night. To dwell on the positive first - the owners did their best to make us comfortable when I was unhappy with our room. It is a very hot and humid place, on the shore in a grove of trees, mangrove and palms. I asked for and was given a bedside light, a very rusty anglepoise. I asked for and was given a 2nd pedestal fan as the ceiling fan hardly moved and one pedestal could not service two beds. I asked for bug spray to spray under the beds where mosquitoes lurk in the daytime and was given some but the can was too rusty to function. I was given another which worked. The dinner was excellent. The welcome was friendly with a glass of cold glass of lime juice and a fridge stocked with complimentary citrus fruit and coconuts
To dwell on the downside. It is falling to pieces, many of the roofs need repair. The wall of the next cabana was slimy with green mould. The fridge had lost its outside coating of plastic and was thickly rusted. The shower dripped. I could send pictures of cobwebs from the bathroom light. Despite covering myself with DeepWoods insect repellant I am scratching as I write this in the nice airconditioned room we have retreated to. The mosquitoes were legion. We lit two coils in the bathroom and one in the bedroom but the traditional building is open to the air and inadequately screened so it was impossible to keep them at bay. I am old enough to need to use the bathroom in the middle of the night so could not stay safe in my net. The very sweet waitress did not know what poached eggs were at breakfast. I think I have said enough. I could not recommend it to anyone.
