Sadly Koror is just a little too American-y in its shopping, eating and modus operandi, but Carolines Resort breaks that mold. More South Sea and charming Philippino than San Diego Hyatt, the staff, service and accommodation could not have been better after a long day's diving, snorkelling, biking or kayaking. Great views, too. Stayed five days here and could have... More

My husband and I stayed at Carolines for 4 days in December. The 8 bungalows are situated on a hill with a gorgeous view of the surrounding countryside and the Philippine Sea. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Each night we ordered breakfast to be delivered the following morning. There is a good variety to choose from but I had... More

We spent 7 days here and absolutely loved the balance of the great views, super friendly and helpful staff. They deliver breakfast every morning to have out on the balcony overlooking the bay below, perfect for planning the days adventures.The units are rustic, traditional bungalows and are not for those looking for the 4 star beach resort, but you shouldn't...

My wife and I visited Palau for four days of scuba diving and kayaking, and Carolines was recommended to us by a colleague who had stayed there many years before (we had been to Palau before, and stayed at one of the hotels on Babeldaob, but it was too far from the dive shops and we spent a lot of...

Go to Carolines for the view and use of PPR facilities but you will have to put up with a hotel that needs updating badly. The second bed we asked for was a lumpy old sofa bed which made sleep difficult. Sheets, pillows, drapes were very old, badly faded and I would thrown them out years ago. Shower curtain needed...

This is a tough review. Our balcony looking down upon the beautiful ocean in the morning with roosters crowing watching the day begin is pretty special here at Carolines. The greeting at arrival was warm and genuine. Quite simply you get a view and a taste of nature, but here comes the hard part: it comes with a sacrifice, so... More

We had a quaint little cottage with a great ocean view, this was especially nice to enjoy when having a yummy breakfast from the balcony. Cottage was old but clean and spacious. All staff at Caroline's were very very friendly and made us feel really special. Included airport pickups which was nice. We would stay again.

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. It's not the most luxurious resort but we really enjoyed our stay and the staff were very helpful. The rooms have a lovely view from the balcony and breakfast is served at a time you select and you can eat taking in the view. Only downside is that there were some... More

I looked at this place versus the Palau Pacific and feel I made a great choice! The place was empty so I was given the best room #7. It was a climb but I didn't mind the daily exercise. The view was fantastic! Both sunrise and sunset were stunning, complete with rainbows. Breakfast on the balcony every morning was perfect.... More

It is very hard to rate any place on this island, first you need to benchmark it with what is available and what your choice is when it comes to accommodation. We wanted very simple accommodation (only 8 bungalows), close to nature (we were in a jungle, on top of a hill overseeing the bay) quite and close to places... More
