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

I don't really get the negative reviews. I found the service here to be very professional. Yes, the breakfast is a bit Asian-focused, but you can still get your french toast and bacon. You must pay for Internet, but it wasn't that bad of a deal and worked fine--Internet services all over Palau are pricey and charged by hour. There... More

Stayed here for one night at beginning of trip. Room was clean, comfortable bed. Bathroom looked clean but had faint odor. Grounds are very nice and great view. Staff very friendly and helpful. It's about $100.00 a night cheaper then Palau Pacific Resort with better rooms but the property itself is not quite as nice.

ホテルスタッフの方々はとてもフレンドリーで、質問やリクエストがあればすぐに対応して頂けましたが、蚊が多かったことと、 有料サービスが多かったことが残念です。 ●とにかく蚊が多い!部屋の前にすごい数の蚊が飛んでいたのでフロントに言ったところ、すぐ蚊取り線香を置いてくれました。 ●部屋はキレイでしたが、壁と天井につぶれた蚊がついていました。 ●空港までの送迎は有料です。ホテルでタクシーを呼んでもらうこともでき、タクシーの方が安かったです。 ●無料wifiはありません。15分1ドルでPC使えますが、とっても遅いです。メール一通確認するのに30分かかりました。国のインターネット事情が良くないみたいです。もしくはホテルのレストランで食事をすれば無料でwifi使えます。 ●レイトチェックアウトに1泊の宿泊代の30%がかかります。今まで利用したことがないのでこれが普通なのか私にはわかりませんが。 ●フロントでポストカードを出してほしいと頼むと切手代で1.50ドルかかると言われました。私たちはすでに郵便局で切手を買っていて、切手代は日本まで1.10ドルでした。 総合評価 清潔感はありますし、国外で日本を感じたいのであれば良いと思います。 決して安いホテルではないのに、ポストカードを出してもらうことすらサービス料がかかったり、何かと有料なのが非常に残念でした。 We stayed there for our honeymoon after we stayed a few nights at north beach. Staff members were friendly and really helpful, but we were not satisfied the stay here (maybe because the experience at north beach was so good that we were disappointed more). It looked nice in...

The service at PRR is amazing. The staff is so friendly and helpful, and everyone speaks English well. The whole island is geared toward asian tourists, and this hotel is no exception, so you'll find that many of the meals are geared toward asian tastes, but they definitely have a ton of food for the western palate as well. There... More

We just got back from an 8 day stay at PRR while we were diving, which is the main reason to go to Palau from our perspective. We were able to get a better than average (airline employee) rate at the hotel, but otherwise it might be a little expensive (Palau is a relatively expensive destination). The dive companies offer...

Great views from the resort. Ideally located for those who are heading off on live aboard dive cruises. Breakfast buffet and room, swimming pool etc were all good quality. Would use this hotel again as a jump off point for diving trips.

The location was good for us - close to Koror yet great views of Rock Islands gave feeling of being remote. Next door to Neco Marine where Palau Aggressor/Dancer arrives and departs. This resort served as a great place for us to adjust to the time zone changes before boarding the Aggressor. Wi-Fi at the hotel and across the island... More

Rooms and beds are great. No wifi. limited food options, but Sam's bar and grill around the corner is the best option Pool is nice and the little beach and lagoon area is also available for a swim, careful of the rock wall, a fellow travellor hurt her toes on the first day.
