“Peace and quiet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

If you're looking for peace and relaxation, this is your place to be. In a small place like Guam, staying at Onward Beach Resort is not a problem. There's Red Guahan Trolley, or Sirena Shuttle Bus right in front of the lobby every 10 or 15 mins. You can buy your ticket for a day or for 5 days (depending on the duration of your stay) at the hotel front desk. And speaking of front desk, my deepest gratitude to all of the people in front desk and concierge. Special mention to Robbie for giving us a warm welcome when we arrived early in the morning.
Wifi is excellent - in the lobby, in your room, resto and business office. Room is big with basic amenities. No free bottled water, though. One thing I noticed is they don't have room service. Good thing there is Shirley's Diner nearby the hotel and Payless Supermarket just short walk from the hotel.
Water Park is really for families with younger kids. I saw many families in the elevator on their way to the pool or at the beach. Too bad I didn't bring my kids.
Breakfast buffet is okay for US$15.
Will recommend this hotel to friends especially those with little children.

In my view, everyone can have a amazing time in Onward Beach Resort.
I am strongly convinced that the place is comfortable and excellent. I think the location is perfect. You can do a lot of pleasant thing in there. First of all, hotel is in front of sea. We can see a view of the sea. At the time of sunny weather sea is shining. In the evening the sun falls into the sea. I promise you will be impressed by beautiful sunset. If you are lucky you may see a rainbow appear in the sea. And it is close to a Duty Free Shop, GALLERIA. In this shop we can enjoy shopping and buy brand goods cheaper than shopping in Japan. It is vast and open AM10:00〜PM11:00.
Another point is that Onward Beach Resort is not only beautiful sea, there is big pool zone. We can enjoy many varieties of pool.For example, a pool that flows like a river, four water slides, wave pool, heated pool and Manta. Manta is a attraction that scarier than water slide.
Additionally, there is Anyaga bay near the hotel. Anyaga bay is the best sea ever for me. There are many kind of fish and colorful tropical fish too. They make us feel better a lot. I recommend you to put the Dolphins watch option. Dolphins are so charming. You can watch dolphins very near. Also there is banana board activity.
Only one thing, accommodation fee is expensive, there are cheaper hotel in Guam. In my opinion, there is nothing for it. Because facilities are so marvelous, for example Free Wi-Fi is in all room, clean room, pool that is pleasant, restaurants, and so on.
If you want to go southern country, you should choice Guam and Onward Beach Resort. You will make the wonderful memories.

We've stayed at the Onward Beach Resort on a previous visit. We enjoyed our stay then and now. Only spent one night in August 2014. The room was large. Staff was friendly. We had a city view which is not spectacular but it was only for one night. The water park is great and free for hotel guests. The AC wasn't the best. The WiFi was good. The room also had a large fridge/freezer in the closet, no microwave. The hotel is a bit of a drive from the main Tumon Bay tourist strip and all the other hotels, shopping and restaurants. You will need a rental car or be familiar with the taxi, bus, trolley schedules. Otherwise, a nice hotel.

My family and I lived in Guam for 3 years, and this resort became our home away from home. They often run specials for locals and military members. You can stay Friday through Sunday for a very reasonable price. The water park is great for both kids and parents. The kids can hit the rides while the parents relax in the lazy river. If you enjoy snorkeling, spear fishing, jet skiing, or parasailing, you can do it all at this resort. You are a short walk from Tumon, which I prefer. the rooms are very big, and the staff is friendly. I recommend this hotel over the Pacific Island Club.

Great hotel for families with kids. Hotel guest has free access to the water park and ocean. Awesome location and decent pricing. They have restaurant inside the hotels, bars, and night life within walking distance.

Guam has become a regular visiting resort for my wife and I. We have tried The Aurora (now run by Lotte), Westin, Sheraton and Hilton. As we have never stayed at Onward, we thought we'll give it a try.
First of all, we had a snow storm nightmare and my schedule got messed up even before we left our country. After unsuccessfully reaching our airport we contacted Onward and not only were they kind enough to cancel our reservation on such short notice but they promised to shift our reservation should we be able to fly out after the storm.
So after 2 days delay we set off to Guam.
The hotel is not so far from the airport so we took a cab from Miki taxi firm.
Checking in was smooth and our shift in our schedule was already on record with the staff.
We stayed at the Tower side of the hotel.
The room was huge ! with ocean view balcony and an ocean view bath tub !
The complimentary lounge service which you get for staying at Tower wasn't so impressive.
Breakfast was okay.
The In-house restaurants they have, the Italian Caravel and the Japanese Sagano both were great !
The general location of the hotel may be a little bit inconvenient compared to other hotels on Guam but we tend to rent a car during our stay so there was no problem. Will stay again.
