Old hotel, large rooms, but clearly a problem with pest control. I basically killed a cockroach a day. There is a Restaurant / Bar in the hotel, which offers good quality food and drinks, and a nice breakfast. It is called the Red Rooster, and by the way, roosters (probably located nearby the hotel) are also singing during the night,... More

Although the hotel is nicely situated along the Sea, we needed to change hotel. There was a smell of mould in all of the rooms we were shown. The headoffice of West Plaza Hotels was able to find us a room at their hotel downtown. (see evaluation). The Red Rooster bar offers a nice choice of breakfast.

Our flights to Palau arrived and departed in the wee hours of the morning and our travel agent booked us into this hotel so we could grab a few hours of sleep on either end of our dive trip. The hotel was convenient and relatively close to the airport. It is a little off the beaten track, but still walking... More

This isn't the flashest hotel in the world, but is value for money and perfectly adequate if you are out all day with work or holidaying. My first room was on the second floor with an external corridor - which is OK except that the bit outside my room was a wall, so I had no natural light and no... More

The hotel is older but well maintained and clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. This was exactly what we needed for a place to stay a few days before and after our week-long live aboard dive boat. I was, however, disappointed that the hotel didn't provide complimentary drinking water (tap water is not drinkable). Any other hotel in... More

The West plaza is one of the older hotels in Palau but I quickly found out had better service than the newer ones, the staff are very helpful and are always willing offer advice. The rooms are not fancy but they are a decent size, clean and seems that their housekeeping pays attention to detail. The Red Rooster restaurant is... More

I was in Palau just for the diving so did not need a hotel with many attractions and amenities. Rooms are basic but very clean and the bed was comfortable. There is no wifi in the hotel - I would head down to Coffee Berry on the Main Street for a coffee and to use their wifi - and I... More

We stayed in this hotel as part of our Oceanic Society snorkeling expedition. The building is old and a bit beat up, but we didn't want to spend $$$ on a place to stay anyhow. It was perfectly adequate once we changed rooms. The first room we were given had a very strong odor of either old smoke or mildew... More

Who goes to Palau to hang out in a hotel all day? Clean rooms, good showers, and a restaurant that is a step above fast food. In a place like Palau you don't need anything else. For the price and quality service this place deserves 5 stars. The hotel has a small staff, but any time I had a question... More

My husband and I stayed here on our recent trip to Palau. The hotel was perfect for our needs. It wasn't anything fancy, but the room was a decent size, the bed was comfortable, and the shower was good enough for us (the water really only ever got warm, but the temperature was consistent and comfortable). There was a TV,... More
