We chose the Palau Royal Resort as it was one of the only medium / upper end resort hotels on the island. It was quite expensive for what you get (but to be fair there's not much choices on the island and we've had much worse for the same price elsewhere). The biggest gripe were the rooms which were old... More

We really enjoyed this hotel and their private beach is a bonus. It's perfect for families, as kids can safely play and swim. They also have a pool, we just preferred the beach. The spa was lovely. Rooms were spacious and clean. Our only complaint was internet access. There is no access in the rooms and when you are in... More

we didn't really have much of a choice with this hotel - hordes or tour groups now coming into palau means accommodation is scarce and rooms are very hard to come by. So we ended up here as it was pretty much the only place in the medium/high end hotel category with rooms available. so why didnt we like it?... More

We stayed at Palau Royal Resort for a week last month. It was our second time to Palau. During our last visit we stayed at Caroline's and Sea Passion. I wanted to stay at Palau Pacific Resort given it's the nicest resort on the island but I couldn't justify spending over $400/night for a room. I am very happy we... More

I basically used the hotel as a day room after a dive trip on a liveaboard. My flight left at 1:45am. This was a really beautiful hotel. The rooms were large and luxuriously furnished. Unfortunately, it was rainy most of the day so my plan to hit the pool didn't happen but I started the long journey home refreshed and... More

Very kid friendly, love the kids room! They have high chairs and kids playthings at the beach. No changing table though. I thought the staff was very attentive. The buffet is awful but the bakery is divine. Internets is terrible.

A very practical and well situated hotel for diving in Palau. Has seen some improvements over the last 6 months, with better food and service. Rooms are pricey any don't expect luxury but is one of the better alternatives in a city with limited good offerings. Neco Marine next door in clearly the best dive operator locally. No wifi in...

The room was lovely and big, the bed comfy and the air con worked well. Staff were very friendly and the Spa is awesome. The food was good, although I think it was more aimed at Japanese guests but we were fine with this. The pool and private beach were quiet and relaxing and the grounds were beautifully maintained. Overall,... More

Stayed 3 nights pre-cruise from Palau. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Resort is large with beautiful well maintained gardens and pool area. Our room had a view of the water but on entering the room was disappointed with the musky smell, which was always there and the room never seemed to be cool although there was a fan and... More
