West Plaza Malakal was an amazing experience. Big rooms, friendly service, and a clean facility. This is definately a place that gives you "more bang, for your buck." This little gem is nestled conveniently between Palm Bay Bistro and surrounding stores that are easy to walk to.

The only reason I can think of that guests would stay here is its proximity to Sam's Tours or the marina where your liveaboard is waiting to pick you up for the lowest possible accommodation rate (but still not cheap for what it's worth). This 2-star motel doesn't pretend to be than its rating. Think 80's decor (save for the... More

We stayed in Palau for a total of six nights and planned to dive every day. All we really needed were some decent accommodations, and we wanted them close to Sam's where we were diving. Booked the 2 bedroom since there were two of us, and we wanted some space. Pick up from the airport was seamless, even though our... More

Absolutely amazing customer service- I forgot piece of diving gear and was not sure if left on the boat or in the hotel. Customer service Becky - was so helpful and visited the boat and ran search in the hotel until it was found and shipped back to me. I am very happy customer.

The hotel is really close by sam tour dive. There isnt much surrounding the area. Its far from the main strip of downtown. The hotel is decent enough to sleep in, beds are soft. Washroom old but usable. This is a 2 star hotel. Aircon always on. Their resto nothing special. Most resto in downtown will pick you up for... More

I chose this spot because it's close to Sam's and the price was right, and I was traveling alone without my family. It's not the kind of place most U.S. couples would be comfortable staying but for me it was adequate. They now have wifi that works in the rooms, as well as any wifi seems to work on this... More

We stayed here for our honeymoon. Our logic was that most of our time would be spent diving/outdoor activities. I would highly recommend this hotel just for that reason. Defiantly not for anything luxurious, you get what you pay for and it served its purpose, the room was clean and had plenty of space. We slept very well in the... More

The best part was location, right near the places we needed to be to do business (ranger station, dock, outfitter). Arrived late at night, paid their shuttle driver $20 for airport pickup, probably twice what a taxi would cost. The room is dark, ridiculously large, uncomfortable beds, rough linens, and equipment did not work (TV or hot water maker). On... More

The hotel is located very close to Sam's Tours, so if you go diving with them, this is a very good location. It is not on the sea, however the price compensates that. The rooms are clean, decent, AC working. There is safe box, available for a deposit of $50 for the key. The personnel at reception is very helpful,... More

We stayed at this hotel for 8 nights during a diving trip in Palau. The accommodation supply in Palau is quite limited and this was the only hotel available at the time of booking. It is a basic hotel but it was in a decent shape and the rooms were large and clean. Quite expensive for what it is but... More
