The wife and I chose Palau Royal Resort because of the reviews on TripAdvisor and because it is very close to the dive boat we were scheduled to be on for a week. The hotel is very nicely designed and most of the rooms have been remodeled over the past year. Our first night at the hotel was in a... More

As with most Palau bound flights, we arrived at 1 AM. We were very happy to see our shuttle driver who immediately settled our luggage and us in the van. After collecting a few more people, we drove through the empty streets of Koror and checked in. Our 5th floor room was lovely and we grabbed a few hours sleep.... More

This hotel is pretty decent - it is not really a 4 or 5 start place, it is an ageing 3 start level place but as good as you will get in Palau. The staff are receptive, they will try to sort out trips for you, taxis etc, and are friendly. The pool is OK - not a lot of... More

I stayed in this hotel on either end of a stay on a live aboard dive boat. The resort was generally clean and uncrowded, however, there was construction going on in one of the wings, which made the beach slightly less relaxing. The day we returned the front desk was unwilling to allow an early check in, despite a fairly... More

We stayed at this hotel with a group of friends for a diving week with Palau Dive Adventures. We were the only westerners other than a couple from the U.S., other guests being from Korea, Japan, and mainly China and Taiwan. Stay was pretty pleasant: premises, garden and pool are very nice (the small beach is artificial, though), views are... More

This resort was not only helpful in every way, but it was full of beauty around every corner. I loved sitting by the waterfall pool with Pacific tropical fish, a sea turtle, and other ocean life swimming freely below. The swimming pool was lovely, too, and there was also a sandy beach area and a gift shop to explore. Top... More

very friendly staffs and sure it is expensive. We just eat breakfast in the hotel and there are some nice restaurants in walking distant. If you don't mind paying 20USD for the wifi card its alright, as the signal in my room was acceptable. Staying in the high floor Deluxe Sea view room which is newly renovated, its worth the... More

I stayed during winter holiday season (12/20-12/28). If you're a scuba diver and want to dive with Sam's Tour, it could be better choice than using PPR, which is another luxury hotel in Palau. Sam's Tour is very close (2 min drive, 10 min walk) and you can have reasonable food there instead of rather expensive hotel food. Also, Mini... More

We chose this hotel due to its proximity to Sam's tour, the one we used for our four day tour of Palau. It turned out to be a good decision. First, the hotel service staff were all highly trained and very efficient and responsive. All pur requests including many restaurants booking, a search for local coconut crab and fruit bat,... More

We stayed here overnight before boarding the Solidltude for a diving vacation. The hotel was beautiful. Nice pool by the waterfront. The staff let us use the facilities between our check out and when we boarded the Solitude. Very convenient. The skiffs picked us up right at the hotel dock and it was also within walking distance of Sams Tours... More
