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

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
