This is our second visit to PPR. and I have to say that I have never had anything but amazing service from the employees at this property! I would agree with other reviewers that most of the guest are Asian, but that did not seem to change the level of service we, as Americans, received. The maid service was excellent,... More

We have reviewed this hotel in the past, 2013 to be exact. The property was opened in 2004 and is currently undergoing some major renovations. Although you can hear the construction process its not all that bad and by the look of things when finished this property will be amazing again. We stayed here to SCUBA dive Palau and it... More

We stayed four nights at the Palau Royal Resort in February. We traveled with three young children (5, 3 and 11 months). The hotel was fully booked. Still, service was great, and staff were very friendly. The people in the reception helped us rent a car which was great to explore the main island. Rooms were spacious and clean. We... More

We stayed here for a week. The were full out doing renovations all the time, with concrete drills, jackhammers, breaking down walls constantly going on everywhere in the hotel. They had the audacity of charging full price as well all the time. With only a letter, stating "sorry for the inconvenience" The staff are very friendly, but, the food is... More

This is a beautiful resort hotel with an excellent staff. The rooms, especially on the east-facing water side (above the Waves Restaurant), were very nice. [NOTE: as of March 2015, another hotel is being constructed next door, beside the small harbor that the lobby faces, and friends said the noise was bothersome.] The bathroom has good room for items on...

We had a large group who stayed here March/April 2015. The checkin/checkout process was smooth and the staff were friendly. Incidental charges were accurate and the rooms were maintained well during our stay. When we called for extra towels, etc., room service was prompt. The self-service laundry facilities were clean and nice ($2 USD to wash, $2 $USD to dry... More

We paid to use the pool and beach for our last day in Koror as all of the guided trips we wanted were booked. Not only did we save a ton of money but we had a lot of fun. A luxurious setting and friendly staff definitely helped.

Palau Royal Resort is more a 2-star boot-camp than anything else. The pick-up from the airport took a while and the driver was not friendly and laid back behind the wheel, so my legs were pretty squeezed. Upon arrival, around 20:00 the receptionist checked our stay 3 nights and told us that we had received 2 (small) bottles of drinking... More

The hotel is quite clean and generally the service is quite good, however the staff at the Breeze Bar were bad. Failed to serve on a number of occasions as they were more concerned about watching TV or talking to friends. Then when you forced them to recognise you, they would serve one drink then ignore you. Rooms were very... More
