“Great hotel but lots of Mosquito's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

I stayed in this hotel twice using as a base in between a diving trip, on both occasions the check in and check out procedure was great as where all the staff. this is a great place to unwind and relax, their is a nice size pool and an area open to the ocean, their are lifeguards on duty in both areas, and they also have a great outside bar, I only ate breakfast there which was ok. the only real down side to this hotel was at sunset their were thousands of mosquito's, the hotel staff did all they could using sprays and coils but we had to put a towel at the bottom of our door to stop them coming in, this may be the time of year we were there and other hotels may have the same issues so don't write of this hotel on my last comments

Room Tip: Keep away from the lifts, this is where the mosquito's congregated the most

This is a delightful place to stay: the staff are all wonderful and accommodating, and the food is exceptional. No complaints. the "nature hike" is better done alone: it's pretty self-explanatory, and interesting. Don't be "turned off" by the Japanese touristas: they're not intrusive (no flags with guides!)

Room Tip: Stay in the "far away" units: quiet, wonderful views.

this resort pretty much has it all in a to die for setting; it's like stepping into the Garden of Eden. The rooms are large and well appointed but not quite 5 star material. The toilet room has a combination toilet/bidet; it's fun to figure out how it works. Breakfast on the terrace (with an amazing selection) will transform any morning and give you a sense of being away from it all. You re in the backyard of prime diving and snorkeling at its best (Sam's Tours is the major operator)... never mind the add'l amenities offered by the resort.
Found the service to be very friendly and helpful and the dinner and lunches were excellent (refer to my on sight write up about the dinner at the Meduu Ribtal restaurant).

The resort is well equipped with what you would imagine a five-star resort to have – bar, restaurant, poolside bar, gym, tennis court, pools – but what impressed us was the quality of service we received from the hotel staff. Everyone just seemed genuinely happy to be working there – from the front desk, to housekeeping, and especially the F&B staff at the poolside bar and at breakfast. They knew the menu well enough to give sound recommendations based on what we liked, and were happy to banter and chat while making you drinks.

The spread at breakfast was huge – choices range from Japanese to European to continental, and there was an egg station, and my personal favourite was the waffle and pancake station where the chef could make pancakes into any shape you want – from manta rays, to turtles, to divers and even a fire-breathing dragon.

The rooms weren’t anything special, but it was worthwhile to pay a little more to get a seafront room, which are literally steps away from the private beach.

The diving was of course, spectacular. PPR has their own dock, which meant you can saunter down after breakfast and get picked up by the dive boat.

Room Tip: Get a seafront room

Palau Pacific is well laid out with lots of rooms with balconies and ocean views and all the facilities and services of a large scale resort. Rooms are reasonably sized, with normal bathrooms. Staff were very friendly and helpful. It's a lovely place to come back to after diving, and the pool bar is great to watch the sunset.

The Palau Pacific Resort is the Eden´s nest, nestled in 64 acres of lush tropical gardens with great Pacific Ocean caressing it´s pristine white sand beach. This luxury resort features 160 unique bungalow style guest rooms decorated in an island motif setting including amenities of a world class resort.
A full of leisure activities and resort facilities include an Activity center equipped to facilitate my exercise. Two outdoor tennis courts available for day and night, lounge on 1,000 feet of beautiful white sand beach or by the beachfront fresh water pool and jacuzzi. They have water activities include kayaking, aqua bike, ocean view board, and excellent snorkeling right off the resort´s private lagoon which has been declared as one of Palau´s conservation areas.

Room Tip: I think all of the room and bungalow are very great, take what you want.

Having had the privilege to stay at many beautiful resorts around the world, the Palau Pacific Resort has got to be one of my favorite. The location is fantastic with many of the rooms with a spectacular west facing views of the ocean where you can watch the sun sinking into the ocean and the dramatic sunset colors.

The staff are all super helpful, very friendly and always have a smile on their face. How can you help but feel the awesome energy this little oasis has? Even in the sudden down pour, the covered cabanas providing shelter while the bar team are happy to mix exotic cocktails as you kick back and relax until the storm moves on.

I especially loved the spa. From the arrival experience of selecting your treatment and filling out the paper work to being lead into one of the treatment rooms with stunning tropical lagoon views to the attentive therapist that work their magic melting away your stresses from the mainland. If your travels bring you to this Island paradise, make sure you spend at least a couple nights being pampered at this resort oasis.
