Carp Island is an isolated island (about an hour away from Koror by boat) and Carp Island Resort is probably the only option you have for accommodation on this island. The view is gorgeous and the resort has some thoughtful arrangement for divers to explore this lovely environment. But when it comes to the quality of the facility here, it... More

My girfriend and I had 12 nights on Carp Island, we loved the peace, at times there were only 3 guests, the snorkeling was fabulous and were taken great care of by our constant guide Rowland, who also took us kayaking, no easy task, and caught us a delicous mangroove crab. Carp is basic and expensive, but thats how it... More

We went diving on Carp Island. It is a location you should only go to for diving, snorkling, canoeing there is nothing else to do. But if you come diving, you are sitting on top of the best dive spots of the world here. The accommodation is clean but basic, most days no hot water but who cares with 30... More

We just got back from Carp Island and had a fantastic time. The island is stunning, peaceful and located close to all the main dive sites. Dive guide was great and staff also fantastic.

For those who want all the comforts of home....stay home. Part of the adventure of travel is to experience new things. I have read several cruel revues from fellow americans about carp island resort, cruel because they were so wanting a posh experience.
