II think some people write reviews with different expectations on what a hotel should be based on certain standards. You have to throw certain expectations out of the window when you go to Pohnpei. It’s not Waikiki or Honolulu, its Pohnpei. With this said, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Ocean View West. What struck us as weird is the friendliness between hotels on Pohnpei. We asked about certain excursions, and we were directed to different hotels, based on our requests. It’s kind of like Macy's telling you to go to Dillard’s to buy something. We rented a car thru the Ocean view to check out the island, fair price, and clean car. We enjoyed the meals in the restaurant. One night, we wanted to try something different food wise, asked the front desk if they could call us a taxi. They told us it would be hard to get a taxi on a Sunday night, most drivers are off. The cook from the hotel grabbed a car and took us to another restaurant. A bit awkward, but hey, it’s Pohnpei.
All in all, a good stay with clean rooms, cable TV, internet and air conditioning....important if you are travelling with a 5 year old.More
