I was very surprised to find such a large hotel on the island. It is much more than a hotel it is a place you can spend the entire day just doing what they have at the resort. They have swimming, boating, scuba diving, fish feeding, sight seeing, all just on the resort. They have a very friendly staff. They... More

My husband and I spent our honey moon at Palau Royal Resort. The hotel is very luxurious and the decoration is beautiful. The lagoon pool area is stunning. The room was all we were expecting and in perfect conditions. The service was average but the whole concept of the pond with turtles and fish is unique.

This was our second time staying at Palau Royal Resort. It's really a nice place with a cool little swim area protected but open to the Lagoon to allow fish and corals to come in. It also has a large pool and beach area and a large saltwater pond on the property filled with tropical fish and a turtle. The... More

We booked this hotel for 3 nights after our week on the Tropic Dancer liveaboard, and so were looking forward to a luxurious and large room for some relaxation time. The rooms were indeed large but not really luxurious. There were squashed mosquitoes all over the walls, we later discovered this was due to the sheer number that come into... More

Stayed here on a dive trip (surprise) to Palau. The grounds are beautiful and everyone I came in contact with from the front desk to the waitresses to was helpful, very friendly and professional. One of the best things about the hotel is the location. Had views of one of the Rock Islands, the bay and a beautiful beach. Two... More

Great location for diving( next to best dive shop in town) however the resort is in serious need of an upgrade and rehabilitation, the rooms are generally tired and not particularly well maintained. The menu and food delivery in the main restaurant needs a do over and adaption to western requirements. Very slow and relatively expensive internet.

Nothing wrong with the resort. It was big and at the far end of town--probably a 15 minute walk, but a quick drive. WiFi is slow and must be paid for, except in bar/restaurant, where it is slow to nonexistent.And when I say slow, I mean you wonder whether you're connected. On the upside, it wasn't that expensive $10 for... More
