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

This hotel was a nice hotel, classified as a Luxury Resort in my opinion the room needs a little more to qualify, I was disappointed in costs mostly, The hotel would be a more expensive place and offers as much as the less expensive places we stayed on the island, don't get me wrong it was nice. Will start with... More

When I first checked in I was annoyed (no free wifi, no free breakfast, only 2 bottles of water per day with 4 people in the room). But after a week - I was on a business trip but brought my family - we were big fans of the place and its the staff that made it so great. It... More

Stayed for 3 nights in April. Good facility compare with other hotels in Palau. However we didn't get chance to access due to water usage restriction. Nice scenery with view of ocean and rock island. Need improvement in dining services. A bit disappointment in the food they provide.

A group of us decided to stay here for a few days prior to getting on a live aboard dive book. We made arrangements through the hotel to be picked up at the airport. The driver was prompt. The check in process was friendly and efficient. The reception area is in an open area that overlooks a large pond. Rooms... More

Arrange to have the hotel shuttle pick you up from the airport before you arrive as there are no taxis at the airport. I don't generally spend a lot of times in hotels where I stay so I can tell you this... The shower had decent water pressure and hot water. The rooms were clean though the beds were a... More

Stayed here in September 2015. Probably one of the best resorts in the country, but still not great. The resort is older, but kept up well. The rooms are dated, but clean. The pool area is ok. The small man-made beach is not so great. We only ate breakfast here a few times, but it was fairly bad quality and... More
