I stayed at this place several times in October and November of 2014. Since my company paid the bill directly, I cannot judge if it was a good value for the money. This hotel did not come up the standard I am used to for business travel, but during that time everything on the Island was full (I checked for... More

We stayed in this hotels for some days on our way to and from our diving live aboard vacation. We picked it for the location close to the town center but not at the main road. So it was quiet und served us well. Do not confuse 'by the sea' with 'at the beach'. Even if there is water both... More

Nice little hotel, right on the water. Great sunsets, has a restaurant and bar inside. Front desk staff is great at arranging tours and cab service. Its an older hotel but it is well maintained and inexpensive. Great ppace for budget traveling.

This place is great for the money, and actually pretty nice! We aren't the type of people to spend time in the room, and if that is your thing this hotel (and Palau) isn't for you. It only had a few TV channels, but comfortable beds and a big bathroom. All of the rooms had refrigerators. The girls at the... More

I am a long term business traveller - stays of 3 months are the norm. West Plaza by the Sea provides exactly what I need - clean rooms, good plumbing, good food and helpful staff. The price is reasonable and the setting is quiet. What is best? Everything works as it should - a real feat in the Pacific where... More

My son and I stayed here during a 3-day dive vacation. The hotel is very simple and basic, but it is clean, comfortable, and mostly quiet. The beds are twins so don't roll around too much! The TV only has a few stations (mostly news) so bring some entertainment. Our room was near the restaurant which resulted in one night... More

Considering the price of hotels in Palau as a whole this basic hotel is at its best when you have a night in each direction from airport. As with all hotels this hotel charges by the number of people not the rooms booked. so, three people using 2 beds will pay 50 % more. Again this happens everywhere in Palau.... More

Lots of West Plazas in Koror. It is a big company. This one had ocean views on both sides. However, don't come here for the view. You won't be spending your time hanging out in your room anyway. The room is basic. It is dated but clean. Rooms in Koror are expensive. You can easily spend 3-500 dollars a night.... More

The hotel is very basic, but also not too expensive. Staff is very friendly. Rooms are a little dark, but hey you're not there to spend much time in the hotel. Maybe one tip. WIFI on the island is a bit of a problem. Restaurants all have big "free WIFI" signs, but usually there is no connection. The hotels only... More

The West Plaza hotels (there are several on Palau) are all reasonably priced and very basic in terms of amenities but the staff is amazing. Clean rooms, smiling faces and good advice abound. We stayed at West Plaza by the Sea - close walk to town, close walk to the end of the road and a small sitting area with... More
