“~A bargain option in Palau...”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

~We stayed for one night as we had a very early flight and we wanted to try out The Palau Pacific Resort, (at the time when we stayed you get day passes to Palau Pacific Resort). The staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating. The room decor was bright red, my hubby said it looked like a bordelo...LOL. Definitely in need of a renovation, but I guess that's why the cheaper price. The room & bathroom were a good size. I hear the food in the restaurant is delish, we were told this by some other guests. We would stay here again as the price is right for Palau.

This was our 3rd trip to Palau to dive. We were catching a liveaboard and needed overnight accommodations the day of arrival and a day-room before catching the plane home. Previously we have stayed at the Palau Pacific Resort, a wonderful resort in Palau, but pricey. Cliffside is about half the price, and yes, maybe half the quality. The hotel is dated and they appear to be gradually refurbishing it. The rooms are small by current standards. Everything was clean. BUT you get 1 pillow per person, no in-room coffee, no hair-dryer, no elevator, etc. There is a refrigerator. And a nice view from the deck. The AC "works" but not adequately even when turned to 17 degrees (Celsius).

Hopefully the new owners (Neco Marine) will bring the quality up to Neco's usual standards over the next year or so.

Can I recommend it? Yes, as a 2-3 star hotel, but clean and reasonably priced for Palau.

I stayed at the Cliffside before and after a Palau Aggressor dive trip. The rooms are clean and air conditioned. The views are good. Passes to the Palau Pacific Resort (a half a mile away) were available.

Most of the patrons are either people going to and from live aboard dive trips or Japanese families with young children. Expect some noise from the families.

The restaurant is adequate for breakfast, but lunch did not look as good, so I ate lunch elsewhere.

Airport transfers are provided by the Palau Pacific Resort's bus.

Room Tip: The rooms with balconies are preferred if you want to set out wet clothing to dry.

Nice hotel which worked out really well for our dive vacation in Palau. Big rooms, beds were firm, clean. Nice shower. Pool was nice although it only got direct sun until about 2:30. Hotel staff friendly and very accomodating. Nothing really in walking distance but cabs and the hotel shuttle were good. Food at the restuarant was good to.

Arrived on Christmas eve night and while they had a Christmas tree decorated and music playing, it was a bit depressing as it was just an ok hotel. Though, from what I can tell, there are not many luxury resorts on the island. The good news is that you can get a day pass for the Palau Pacific, so I spent Christmas day there.

Rooms were large yet basic. Not many bathroom amenities.

That said, the staff was very nice and helped with several requests. If you are okay with basic accommodations, it would be fine to stay at.

I went with friends on a 7 day diving vacation to Palau. While not a "luxury hotel" the rooms were large, well equipped with two queen beds, a mini fridge, table & chairs and chairs on the lanai as well. The hotel offers free internet but its hard to get a signal at times. Breakfast was included with our room and it was perfect every morning. The lady at the front desk was the most friendly and helpful person I've ever met at a hotel! She took great care of us all week long. All of the staff members were pleasant and super helpful. They go above and beyond the call of duty to make your stay pleasant. I highly recommend this hotel when staying in Palau.

Room Tip: All the rooms have a great view of the bay.

Stayed here after an Aggressor trip. Very accommodating staff, quaint ambiance, rather average rooms, and nice garden/grounds across the road. Main problem is that there is no warm water on the 4th floor - not even tepid. They use tiny tankless heaters that don't work at all. The staff is aware of the issue, and will go through the motions of dealing with it, but nothing gets fixed - stay here and you will have to get used to cold showers.
