Nice little hotel right on the water with great views of the sunrise and sunset. Its close enough to town that you can walk. There is a restaurant with the local red rooster beer on tap and huge pizzas. If you are going to palau you cant go wrong with the west plaza

1 - Only one key per room even if dual occupancy. WTH? Why? Such an inconvenience, and such a cheap move. 2 - Staff was very nice, even the rest/bar staff. 3 - Bar was understaffed for our tour and so there was a huge wait for food or drinks the first couple mornings. 4 - Roaches everywhere. Walking on... More

The hotel is a bit outdated and it is not situated at a nice location with a pool or a beach. All of this was clear at the moment we booked this hotel so we knew what to expect. The hotel was clean everything is working as it should be, and that was all we needed. It is situated on... More

Location is good, with an easy walk into town. Restaurant is available at the hotel, though we didn't use it. Room facing the water was nice. Noise in the hallway was a little loud and there wasn't any ventilation in the room. Yes, the window to the hallway could be opened, but it really wasn't enough. The bathroom had no... More

West Plaza by the Sea is a much better choice than the the West Plaza Corral Reef which is down the street. There's a restaurant on site. We had mostly breakfast there, also a couple of dinners. Food was good, drinks were good, and staff is very friendly.Outdoor tables have a good view.

Stayed at the West Plaza by the Sea on August 2015 for 3 nights on a work trip. Went by fellow traveller reviews when picking this hotel as we were looking for options below AUD$200 per night, am very glad I did. The location is excellent in that it is not far from everything but being off the main road... More

Basic and efficient lodging, well suited for a vacation where the purpose is to tour the country or dive and not lounge by the pool. If you are looking for a resort, pass on this hotel. However, if you are travelling to Palau to dive and don't plan to spend much time at the hotel, this is an excellent choice.... More

Stayed here for the first time this year as part of a dive trip. Staff are friendly, rooms are clean and most showers are hot so it is everything you need really without the frills. Breakfast was included and whilst we ate the same thing for 5 days straight off the two choice set menu, it wasn't bad. Don't expect... More

Lately there has been an huge influx of Chinese tourists in Palau who have been booking up hotels months in advance. We did not realize this until it was too late, and struggled to find a place to stay a month before our departure. After searching literally every hotel in the Koror area, West Plaza by the Sea was the... More

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
