Staff were fantastic. I was well taken care of and enjoyed my week there. The attached restaurant is very good and has Red Rooster draft beer available. It's locally brewed. I liked the rooms with the bay view and tables out front.
The rooms are adequate. There are tables in front of each room with a water view and breeze. No pool or beach access but we had been diving so we didn't really care. The food was good at the restaurant which also has a large outdoor patio, again with nice view and breeze. Town is within walking distance although there isn't much there to see or do there other than a bigger variety of local restaurants and a little shopping. The front desk was particularly friendly and accomodating to any requests. We enjoyed our stay there. A shuttle service is available to the airport which is helpful due to the crazy flight hours in and out of Palau.
We found this a wonderful place to stay with its own restaurant. The dive services will pick you up at the front door. It was conveniently located, clean, and economical. It is certainly possible to stay in a fancier place, but you have to pay a lot more. We found, for the cost, this place was perfect. If we visit Palau again we will probably stay here.
A large group of us stayed here in February. While the hotel is a bit basic the rooms are clean and house keeping did a great job of cleaning our rooms daily. I liked the location as I could watch the sunsets from the tables outside of my room and sunsets could be seen from it's restaurant, the Red Rooster, in the morning. The tables were also nice for getting together with friends for coffee or a stronger beverage. The front office staff was always friendly and helpful. The hotel is on a peninsula with a mini market and Ace Hardware to the right and several markets to the left as you head towards the main road. There is also a new Gelato restaurant within easy walking distance. Many in our group walked to the main road and it's restaurants but in the 85 degree, high humidity weather I often found it easier to take a $8.00 taxi ride to places like the museum or took one of the many free rides offered by restaurants and spas. To be clear, this is not the Palau Pacific Resort, but if you want a clean friendly place with a nice location while you are on a dive trip then I highly recommend West Plaza by the Sea.…
Near the sea, far from downtown, may take 20 to 25 minutes to shopping center. It's dark at night. Not walk alone by yourself. The room is ok, clean and comfortable. The hotel provide a thermos in the room. There is a restaurant in the hotel. The food is good.
