This was our 3rd trip to Palau to dive. We were catching a liveaboard and needed overnight accommodations the day of arrival and a day-room before catching the plane home. Previously we have stayed at the Palau Pacific Resort, a wonderful resort in Palau, but pricey. Cliffside is about half the price, and yes, maybe half the quality. The hotel is dated and they appear to be gradually refurbishing it. The rooms are small by current standards. Everything was clean. BUT you get 1 pillow per person, no in-room coffee, no hair-dryer, no elevator, etc. There is a refrigerator. And a nice view from the deck. The AC "works" but not adequately even when turned to 17 degrees (Celsius).
Hopefully the new owners (Neco Marine) will bring the quality up to Neco's usual standards over the next year or so.
Can I recommend it? Yes, as a 2-3 star hotel, but clean and reasonably priced for Palau.
