A faultless ten day stay at truk stop with genuinely friendly,knowledgeable hosts James and Corki Benito. The lodge is comfortable with great food and a terrific range, especially considering the remoteness of Chuuk . The diving was expected to be good but in fact went well beyond our highest expectations. So often on dive trips abroad you are plonked in... More

This is my second time visiting Chuuk after getting my Open Water Certification here last year. Chuuk is not a place you come for the beautiful white sand beaches or little streets lined with cute restaurants. Weno is a rough town but the diving is second to none. Truk Stop is a great option when you want to explore some... More

Upon Truk Stop, you will find a compact parking lot since the main road next to it is under construction; but you get off and step on a cemented floor that leads you to their reception desk. Young and beautiful faces usually await the customers; ready to check reservations. The hotel is an elegant in style building with the history... More

You stay at this place for one reason and one reason only, to dive legendary Truk lagoon, so I'm only going to review the dive center and staff and not the hotel or restaurant. If you want to know about these things, ask me. We had 12 people divided into two groups: one doing recreational and one doing technical diving.... More

Considering you are in the middle of the pacific and limited with option, Bill and his family has done a great job at building this place. The room (we stayed in E3) was spacious and clean. A bit outdated (TV did not work) but than again who cares, you come here to dive...(or at least we did). The bakery is... More

I stay in this hotel for six days. The hotel room is clean, and nicely decorated. Staff are friendly and willing to help. Restaurant menu have good choice and price is reasonable. Grocery stores within 3 minutes walk. Consider Chuuk is a small atoll in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, the hotel owner has done an excellent job to... More

First of all the dive sites. There is nothing else like this in the world. If you like deep wrecks drop everything and go now! They have and are degrading, but they are still stunning. Just go. Seriously - but maybe not dive with this operation. Next the lodging. It is what you would expect for micronesia. It is old,... More

There are not too many choices for hotels in Chuuk which is why this place no doubt keeps going but I'm glad to say this will be my last stay here.

Firstly - the hotel. The staff are great, making you feel at home. Rooms are a little tired, but are clean and comfortable. The restaurant serves good food with local options available. A nice place to watch the sun set with a cold beer in the evening. The cakes from the onsite bakery are devilishly good and will be a... More
