What can I say other than its very basic! There are absolutely no frills, it's an air conditioned box with a bed. The AC noisy, the bed is lumpy, there is no free WIFI and the pay WIFI was none existent. Fortunately for me, I was only staying there for 12 hours; flights leave Palau at a ridiculous time in...

All we needed from this hotel was to have a place to sleep the night before we boarded our liveaboard the next day; and to have a day room when we got back a week later (we had to get off the liveaboard at 8:00 a.m. and our flight out was not until 2:00 a.m. the next morning). This hotel...

I had a room on the first floor and I think the rooms on the second floor feel a bit more airy with the high ceiling. The room is very basic and one can tell the room is quite old - rust in the toilet, marks on the mirror/wall, fridge etc. I would't say it is super clean but it...

Nothing fancy, just a basic hotel. We arrived around 2am, and our room was ready. Uses a dumb waiter system to bring bags up from the lobby. Good restaurant right across from entrance, okay breakfast buffet on the water.

I mean the hotel is ok when you are going for diving and you do dives whole day and just taking shower and rest at the hotel. But for my opinion the hotel is too expensive for the quality they provide. There is nothing special, really not.

We stayed for one week in an apartment with kitchen and two separate bedrooms. It is a really good place for a family, and also a relatively good price (as good as it gets in Palau). Clean, no luxury though. Good aircondition, TV. Internet works via PNCC, where you have to buy the cards. We were told it only worked...

The Good - 3am airport pick-up / check-in flawless - 3-stories, lift for baggage only - along the main road, but still quiet - good sized room for 3-pax, quiet split-type aircon, small ref - fresh towels & bedding, good mattress & pillows - tired bathroom, with glasses and complete condoments - kettle & cups, but no spoon, coffee or...

We chose this hotel since it was near Sam's Tours where we did our diving and Antelope Diving/Tours was also just behind this establishment, who did a fantastic job with our Milky Way/Clam Snorkelling/Jelly Fish lake excursion. There is also a restaurant just beside it and a food mart across the street. The room we occupied had good air-conditioning, of...

We stayed for only a few hours after disembarking a cruise ship and a Jellyfish Lake tour before boarding our long flight home. There is no elevator so your luggage goes up via a dumb waiter. We had to figure it out for ourselves but not too hard. Just unexpected. I would not have wanted to spend the night. We...

Clean spacious rooms, firm bed, flat screen TV (but did not use it), A/C, mini frig, teapot and in-room safe. No restaurant on site but several within walking distance. Two convenience stores within sight of hotel. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Walking distance to two major dive shops; Sam's and Neco. Simple but nice. Internet is very limited (slow) on...
