Just across the street from wonderful snorkeling spot, the Blue Hole, which is protected by an outer reef so it's easy to snorkel with no current or choppy waves. Food is very good, with hearty portions. Rooms are spotlessly clean and the staff is attentive and very helpful. Drawbacks are that the internet on Kosrae Island is very slow, and...

Up front note: The management of the Nautilus changed in December, so more recent information on improvements may well be available by the time you look at reviews. I came to Kosrae to work for about two months and first settled into the Nautilus. Staff is friendly, the rooms are clean. The restaurant staff is friendly, though service is not...

Kosrae Nautilus Resort services are awesome and people are very friendly. I love to go there just to find my friends Alik Ansolom Sikain and Nena Minoru Tulensa to have a cup of coffee and chat with them.

Kosrae is a part of Micronesia. The island is truly beautiful and the people are wonderful. You have to remember you are where few people vacation at. The little resort was very clean and the people were wonderful. They want to help you in anyway possible. You feel very safe on this island. The food was good and the coffee...

Doug and his staff are wonderful. I hope it continues with the new owners. The staff is kind and accommodating. The restaurant offers excellent fresh fish. The rooms are clean. And the pool is a nice bonus for non-saltwater swimming.

Myself, my wife and 6 year old son recently visited Kosrae from July 29 to August 2. The resort and Island was fantastic, great hospitality and service. It exceeded our expectations for an Island so far away from anything else. The food was fresh, local and tasty. The diving was amazing and the staff went above and beyond the typical...

The Nautilus was a hidden gem in this tropical paradise. The rooms were very clean and beds were comfortable. The restaurant served the best fish and the wait staff was great - thank you Julie, Amanda, Wallace. Mary at the front desk was very helpful as well. Everyone was very accomodating when we had a rather large party with islanders...

This hotel exceeded my expectations for a relatively remote island. The rooms were quiet and clean. The restaurant was consistently good, and the staff very attentive if a bit slow (island time!). The location right in front of the Blue Hole was a pleasant surprise for a quick snorkel - gear can be borrowed from the front desk - in...

A group of us went to dive and everything was wonderful at this dive resort! The rooms were comfortable, well decorated and very clean! Hot water pot and coffee, tea and condiments provided. Mini fridge. Nice desk area and comfy beds. The restaurant had a nice selection and they were very accommodating for our one dairy free traveler. The food...

The Nautilus is a great place to stay on Koshrae, especially if you are travelling with children. Of the three resorts on the island, the Nautilus is the only one with a pool. All the staff are friendly and highly responsive. The rooms are simple but modern, and very clean. The pool is situated in the center of the resort,...

Glad you and your family had a great time. We are working at the moment to send the free wifi signal to the rooms also, but things are never as simple as the instructions make out when it comes to computers etc. Anyway, it sounds like you enjoyed what Kosrae is really all about.
