This is our second time staying at PRR after a dive trip, and, with the addition of The Cove as an alternative hotel, it will be our last. As others have mentioned, this hotel caters to mainly Asian vacationers, and it's very apparent. Service in the bar area inside the hotel was slow to non-existent, despite the fact that we... More

We stayed here for 2 days prior to boarding a dive live-aboard and I'm so grateful we did. Generally, things are as they are pictures on their website. It feels newish and everything is kept quite clean. The rooms are beautifully designed. The deep tubs are a nice touch. Beds are comfortable. Balcony overlooking the ocean was lovely. They even...

Friendly and extremely helpful staff. Rooms clean, very quiet with comfortable beds. Grounds meticulously maintained with pond well stocked with tropical fish. On the down side, you should be able to drink the tap water and have free, reliable wifi at the resort for $300 plus a night.

As a diver I went to visit Palau. I stayed in the Palau royal resort. The hotel was good but not great. Hotels is a kind of a problem in Palau. The room and the friendliness are very good. The price unfortunately way to high. The wifi is a big problem in Palau and in the hotel you only have... More

Having traveled through the Pacific for my blog, world-adventurer.com, I get to stay at plenty of resorts and Palau Royal Resort really has a unique offering. Here's what I enjoyed about the stay. - Beach and pool were definitely the highlight. You can lounge around and enjoy the pool, but unfortunately the kayaking needs to be within a roped in... More

Pros: Most of the hotels in the eastern pacific are lucky to be hostel level, this is a legitimately nice room. Good dive shop on premise Big breakfast buffet (but very Japanese. Would get old after more than 2-3 days). Grocery Story and nice dock restaurant nearby. Good AC and bathtub. Nice and quiet Nice lagoon for snorkeling (plenty of... More

Have been to Palau before and this place was our new choice! Lovely staff and the grounds are beautiful with lovely big pool and bar area. Food good - great options for all cultures. And all local restaurants are walking distances. Highly recommend

Besides being a lovely Resort, the highlight was the attention provided by all of the staff. Everyone ALWAYS greeted you or bowed as you passed. Many got to know your names. Concierges Miho and Yosie (?) provided great recommendations and always arranged for anything we asked for quickly. The rooms were clean, modern and quite large. Upper rooms had better... More

Knowing Nikko hotels I knew the service at PRR would be good, and the fact that the room that I stayed in was newly refurbished was certainly a plus. This being said, the hotel lacks a certain atmosphere and truly can only be a 4-star property. That being said, it was clean, comfortable and picturesque. They really need to do... More
