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

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
