The service at PRR is amazing. The staff is so friendly and helpful, and everyone speaks English well. The whole island is geared toward asian tourists, and this hotel is no exception, so you'll find that many of the meals are geared toward asian tastes, but they definitely have a ton of food for the western palate as well.
There are two views: One looking straight over the swimming cove at the Rock Islands (preferred) and one looking over the bay toward the road and another hotel. Either will be nice, but the view over the Rock Islands is terrific. If you pay for one of the higher floors (4-6) you will be above the palm trees, and have an unobstructed view.
A note on the weather. It rains every day in Palau, many times! It's not like most places, where it's either a nice day or a crappy day - it honestly changes hour by hour. You'll have a massive rain and it will be completely dry and sunny in 45 minutes. If you go knowing this, you'll be much happier. It's completely worth it! Their rainy season (where it apparently does rain for days on end) is June - August if I remember correctly.
There is a shuttle in the evenings that runs about every half hour into town. It is $7 for a pass for the whole week. Taxis are $6 each way.
You'll love it here, and you'll love the people. This resort is a good, solid resort with lovely people and service. The rooms had everything you'd need, but they are a little "standard" - not particularly cozy or nice, which is the only reason I give this resort a 4 star rating.
