Shuttle service was provided at a reasonable cost. There were water views on both sides of the hotel. Less than a 10 minute walk to the town of Koror. Quiet at night. We spent a total of 3 nights at West Plaza by the Sea before and after our liveaboard trip. Rooms had either one double bed or double and... More

Has all the amenities and services of 4&5 star hotels. Very clean and spacious rooms. Comfortable beds and powerful ac. Staff could not be more gracious and price is a steal. Booked with ocean hunter III on way on and recommend to book direct on way out when c/o on initial visit. Got a complimentary 8:30 early check. Great Place.

Stayed one night prior to a dive trip. Arrived late in the night, the room was ready, clean, and comfortable. Perfect to catch up on sleep after a very long flight. This place is nothing fancy but perfect for the one night stay we needed. Since we arrived so late, they allowed us to have a late check out. We... More

Since this was a dive trip, we really didn't stay most of our day in the hotel. It was homey for most of us because a lot of their staff are Filipinas. The rooms are clean, but they do not really clean the rooms everyday, except if you request them to clean it. The location is near the museum, and... More

Remember that you are in Koror. Not tons of choices. There are a few much more expensive places that cater primarily to the Japanese. This hotel is staffed completely with Filipino's, the worker bees of the islands. All very friendly and respectful. The rooms are super clean and basic. A couple channels on the TV and rock hard beds. The... More

We had to stay at West Plaza by the Sea a couple of nights until our rooms at Palau Pacific Resort were available. About all I can say is the place is cheap and the rooms seemed clean. It is a very dark and dreary place to stay so if you are going to have to stay there plan on... More

This hotel isn't fancy, but since we were there to be in the ocean the whole time, it was great. It is convenient to walking downtown or to restaurants. The room was large and kept clean. It was quiet for sleeping. Front desk was helpful and responded quickly to requests. Totally adequate for a stay.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 weeks while on a scuba diving holiday. This property worked out very well for us. We had a deluxe room, which was large and with a kitchenette. Bathroom had a tub & shower, and lots of toiletries were included. We had a sea view, and the location, on a quiet peninsula, was... More

We waited too late to obtain lodging at any of the resorts and were a little worried about what we would find when we got to the WP by the Sea. Fortunately we were pleasantly suprised. While definitely not in the same class as a newer hotel nor a resort, it fit our needs perfectly. The staff was super friendly... More

First, we had requested rooms on the ground floor for accessibility reasons. It is a good thing we did, as the hotel has no passenger elevator. Both rooms were very nice. A safe is available for a $50 deposit, but all the other regular amenities were included. One room had better lighting than the other. The ground floor rooms also... More
