Beautiful hotel with great view

Me and my wife stay in an Ocean View room. The view from our room is magnificent and offer a stunning view each and every morning when we wake up. The decor is very present and the layout is very efficient. The buffet is of good quality. The house reef offers abundant of colors and even has a school of fish! The service staff are friendly and helpful. The location is close to many tour operators. Over all we like the hotel and would come back in the future.

Pros: Private beach...Palau doesn't have a lot of beach access so this is a huge perk.
Cons: The restaurant food is terrible and really expensive. Make sure you make reservations at other places. Koror has some good restaurant options
Location: You can get to shops and restaurant easy.
Great because it has a pool and it's own private beach.

Everything was great but the wireless, but we knew that going in from other reviews... unless you by a wireless access pass... The only slightly negative was the beds were pretty firm. On a $saving tips, if you don't want to pay 2$ per bottle of water and want more than the free one they give you each day there is a market right out the front gate and twenty yards to the left. We also got some great fruit and snacks there.

Pros: Friendly staff. Spacious room.
Location: Sam's tours and IMPAC are tour operators offering kayak tours, tours of Jelly Fish Lake, and some land tours.
The room was spacious with a view over looking the beach. United flights from Palau to Guam (gateway to Tokyo) leave a little after midnight. We arranged a late checkout of 6:00PM by paying half the daily rate - giving us a place to shower after being in the ocean and a place to relax before the late flight.

Cons: WIFI throughout.
Pleasant enough given general standard in Palau. Expensive for quality of rooms / experience. Very good staff and pool/beach facilities. Rooms clean and simple. Food and beverage offerings average. No WIFI in rooms!

Location: Used "Neco" marine for scuba diving...first rate. Also "legends" massage, for a relaxing thai massage, both easy walking distance from hotel.
Very friendly staff, from the airport pick up to pool crew & maintenance, every single staff said hello & smiled.
