Stayed here for 3 days prior to a livaboard week. The rooms are excellent ! ALL face the water with corridors on the landward side. They are quiet, and well- appointed, with spa- like bathrooms. As the hotel caters often to Japanese, the toilets are japan- made. This includes heated seats and bidet options that are interesting. Wi-fi and television... More

This hotel is fairly new, although showing signs of age, as the salt air works on the exterior. The staff is friendly and courteous. The rooms are clean, bright, and fairly large. Access to scuba diving via Sam's Tours is excellent, with easy shuttle service upon request. Sam's is close enough to walk if you choose. The hotel caters principally... More

Of course, almost any beach location in Palau is exquisite. The Palau Royal Resort is situated on a private beach. Unlike most resorts, this charges extra for almost everything. This is especially noticeable when it comes to water. The water in the rooms is not potable. The views from our room were stunning, perhaps because we were on the top... More

I stayed with kids and wife to stay away from noise, busy city life of Tokyo. Swim with dolfin was good, Island tour was fun, too. I would like to come back again. The hotel is surrounded by a quiet sea, and is good to have a private beach in the hotel property.

We chose the Palau Royal Resort as it was one of the only medium / upper end resort hotels on the island. It was quite expensive for what you get (but to be fair there's not much choices on the island and we've had much worse for the same price elsewhere). The biggest gripe were the rooms which were old... More

We really enjoyed this hotel and their private beach is a bonus. It's perfect for families, as kids can safely play and swim. They also have a pool, we just preferred the beach. The spa was lovely. Rooms were spacious and clean. Our only complaint was internet access. There is no access in the rooms and when you are in... More

we didn't really have much of a choice with this hotel - hordes or tour groups now coming into palau means accommodation is scarce and rooms are very hard to come by. So we ended up here as it was pretty much the only place in the medium/high end hotel category with rooms available. so why didnt we like it?... More
