This is a very nice resort and even though its on the expensive side its worth it. All the boat tours come right up to the hotels dock for drop offs. The food is great, shops, concierge, pool, and really modern style rooms. I Highly recommend this resort afterall if you flew all the way to Palau you minus well... More

This is a fabulous place to stay in Palau and I highly recommend it. They must be in the process of renovating their rooms because we were at first given a very old and outdated room with two twin beds. I had requested a king and asked for a different room, and we were given a new, obviously upgraded room... More

I spent two days here-either side of joining the amazing Palau Siren for a 10 day dive liveaboard. We booked in to use the facilities for the day. It costs $40 for the day to use the pools, lounges, beach and access to bars and restaurants in a beautiful setting

Old 3* hotel. Rooms are ok. Restaurant is average in accommodation and needs an upgrade. Wifi is very slow and must be payed for. This is not of this era. Dinner is nothing special. Staff is very friendly.

If you are traveling with a family as we did and actually use the facilities (beach/pool) a lot, then this hotel is definitely worth it. The beach and pool area are beautiful and quite empty (at least when we were there) because most hotel guests are out diving/touring all day. We did one full day of touring by boat and... More

We spent 8 nights in this wonderful hotel. The rooms were very comfortable especially after a day packed with breathtaking diving. The buffet breakfast was excellent with American and Japanese choices. The view over the beach was phenomenal and the sunsets and sunrises from third floor were dramatic. The breeze bar was also very nice. The hotel was very accommodating... More

I spent 6 nights here, and never wanted to leave! Rooms were ok, but the view of the Rock Islands outside my balcony was breathtaking. The service was exceptional. I felt welcomed and appreciated. Would go back again!

I think this is my first One Star review. I hope it will be my last. Bottom line: This hotel is overpriced, very old, and way below the standards of any other Nikko property I have ever seen. The hotel seems to cater to large Chinese groups. If you are not that, and/or not used to that, beware. I stayed... More

The hotel (it's a hotel, not a resort) is generally fine. The rooms are nice, the restaurant is adequate, the staff is friendly. However, for the extreme price I expect more than adequacy. Things like limited drinking water, no free wifi, and very expensive massage further make you question why your room costs so much. There was nothing here that... More

My stay was nothing short of relaxing. I've been visiting Palau for 6 times now and I never get tired of the breath-taking scenery and island life. The staff are very accommodating. I stayed in their Premier and Royal Suite and the rooms do not disappoint. (free wifi for suite rooms only though) Most of my trips to the island... More
