We just got back from Carp Island and had a fantastic time. The island is stunning, peaceful and located close to all the main dive sites. Dive guide was great and staff also fantastic.

Like many of the reviews mention, the food is definitely lacking a bit, which ordinarily would bother us but with the best diving we have ever seen and the most relaxing surroundings, it didn't bother us too much. However, there did seem to be a lack of inspiration and by day 3 we were already seeing the same lunches and dinners as we had been given before. Maybe most guests don't stay as long as we did! Food prices expensive for what you got but I guess they have to transport from the mainland....

All in all, a fantastic place to spend time. Would love to go back someday.

I went there in Honeymoon for 3 days! the place is amazing, one of the best experience on my life!!!! Really! The resort is very simple and you fell home as the staff is very friendly ( a big hugh to Mathias and His wife!!!!) but in the other side the natur is pristine , the beach is all for you and the jungle too. The island is very particular, is a star shape! and you can go around, ( stronglu rreccomended!!!) but be careful to the high and low tide!!!! you fell INSIDE the nature, part of it! You can go dive or have kayak!!!
In front of the Isalnd there is Peliliu, one of the point of the Second War two battle's, and you can go to see the wreck......
the rooms are simple, clean and big

Cons: The water is very shallow and there are some green algs. There are no A/C. The food and the residence is too expensive respect to the quality, but are just details.....

if you want a relaxind and real " cast away" experience....go to CARP ISLAND RESORT!!!

Carp Island Resort is a private island with a view of the outter rock islands and the state of Peleliu in the distance. With marked paths for nature hikes, kayak rentals, and a beach volleyball court (to name a few), there's never a dull moment. Area is very quiet and peaceful, grouds kept impeccably clean, and if the warm island breezes aren't enough for you, you have the option of renting airconditioned rooms. It was a blast!

For those who want all the comforts of home....stay home. Part of the adventure of travel is to experience new things. I have read several cruel revues from fellow americans about carp island resort, cruel because they were so wanting a posh experience. I have been to Carp several times, I lived in Palau for 13 months and my visits to carp were wonderful, the food was excellent, and the Filipino staff was more than helpful. The fans were great , it kept the tropical night air moving around the room, and had a great sleep. I highly recommend this resort to anyone who wants adventure in their travel, and not just another cookie cutter hotel.

10 minutes to Blue Corner!(pic) depending on the tides. Are you kidding me? Anything that close to The Spot (a little overtouched) is a winner right out of the gates. Carp Island is an eco lodge that provides its guests with what they can grow or raise, chicken, pork, limited vegetables, papayas and of course daily fresh fish. (There aren't any Costcos nearby so don't expect too much.) If you don't dive there is great kayaking around the island & plenty of hammochs to nap and read all day long.

Yes Carp accomodations are a little spartan but for goodnes gracious look at where it sits on the reef baby. Right there just off The Corner and the Blue Holes and a few others that I can't pronounce. Its a shame quite frankly that Palau even allows people to occupy such a beautiufl tropical island so close to their pristine reefs. I wouldn't if I was president. In fact I'd make everybody hole up in Koror or on a liveaboard. Save the coral!

If it wasn't catering to Japanese than it would cater to the Germans or somebody else because Americans make up about 5% of the visistors (I'm guessing). But who cares who gets the preferred treatment. You're here to dive not to be pampered, come to Hawaii where I live and we can give you plenty of that but come on you're in Palau how lucky you are. Besides super resorts like Wakatobi are way out of my price range.

A word of advice. Be on your a game when you dive out there cause Palau is no place for beginners. And if you are new to the sport don't be ashamed to let them know and insist that the dive masters keep you in the easy breezy light and easy stuff because Palau is about the action and the aciton is found in the currents that circle the Blue Corner and the currents can be running hard. The Palau boys are normally on top of their game out there but they can be sidetracked and miss a beat so be careful, hit it hard but be safe. Palau Rocks! but truth be told, a little overdove. Been there twice. No tv on Carp so it's tough to go during the NFL playoffs.
