We stayed at the Palau Royal for a week in June 2015. There was a bit of refurbishment going on but you hardly heard or saw anything, one half of the hotel was being updated. The staff are all extremely friendly, the hotel is very clean in all aspects and the food quality and variety in the restaurant was excellent.... More

I recently stayed for 5 days. For weekend adventures, it's conveniently located near Sam's. And it's right next door to Kramer's for a friendly bite to eat. The grounds are nice, but don't be fooled by the pictures of the beach. It's a manmade beach on the bay/inlet area. Probably not where you want to spend much time unless you... More

Very nice resort with a spa & pool. Very quiet if you are hanging out at the pool because most people go out and do tours. I had the pool to myself almost everyday & I was there for 4 days. They only have 1 restaurant, but it does have a wide variety of food. Rooms were very clean &... More

This is a beautiful hotel, very quiet and relaxing. We stayed one night while waiting to get on a live aboard dive boat. The location is right next to the marina, so it was very convenient for us. The pool is lovely and has nice, warm water. There was a small store and several eating places within 3 minutes walking... More

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...
