Mechang Lagoon Resort is a homely stay close to the airport. The room is comfortable with a large common living room where you can relax. The room has nice views of the lagoon. Transfers to the city or the airport is available if needed.

I stayed at this place on December 2016. It was really nice place to relax after your daily activities, since it is located right at Mechang Lagoon and Neco Bay. The Surrounding was unbelievably amazing because of the rock Island and floating dock. The staff were supportive and always ready to help the guest any time I need. I would like to recommended this place to the people who loves to stay in quiet and peaceful place surrounded by beautiful nature. Although it is not a luxury Resort but equipped with all the stuff that a traveler needs while their stay. If you are nature lover you will definitely love to stay at this place while visiting The Republic of Palau. Have a wonderful trip to all.

The house was nice and clean, breakfast was included, the hosts were very nice and responsive and gave us rides when needed, location was excellent with easy access to the water, and tour companies were able to pick up either by car or boat at the nearby dock. We had a kitchen available so that we could cook when we wanted. A really excellent stay!

We visited Palau third time for scuba diving. Actually there are many hotels and resorts in the Koror island. However I thought the price is too expensive compared to the quality of room. Anyway, we could find cost effective G.A.U. Mechang Lagoon resort in this trip. (G. A. U. means an abbreviation of the name of owner lady.) 1. We could cook in this resort by ourselves without any cost and the kitchen was clean. 2. Staff picked up and dropped off us to the airport for free. 3. Our room has private bathroom with bathtub and the room was clean. 4. We could use wifi for free in specific area although it was too late. (My diving guide told me the internet speed will be faster because the Koror island are constructing optical fiber cable line from Guam) 5. Free breakfast was served with some fruits. (This is rare in Koror at this price) 6. Staff were very kind and they were ready to serve 24/7. 7. They picked up and dropped off us from any area of Koror island at $5 for one-way. (This resort is located far from the center of Koror island however the distance is 4 km.)

We are come from Hong Kong, our family and friends total 7 persons stayed at this resort last week for diving holidays. Actually they help us to arrange all diving package and booked the boat for hand fishing. We went to diving (or fishing )for day time and the resort did all arrangement for us if we wanted barbecue or other cooking at night! Overall all staffs are so nice, helpful and friendly, they really did their best to fulfil our requested. Only one thing is not good enough -- very bad internet & wifi signal...... anyway thank you so much for their arrangement and we are very enjoyed & keep sweet memories at all!

The hosts did their best to make my trip to Palau unforgettable. They also offer kayaks for rent which was a fantastic experience between the Rock Islands. The house is situated in a quiet neighborhood near Koror by the sea in beautiful surroundings.

Since hotel in Koror is not that cheap. So I can say that the price for room were reasonable.The staffs are friendly and helpful. They seems ready all the time to serve guest. Breakfast was fine and the plus point of resort is the attached lagoon and the wonderful view of rock islands from the resort. They arranged my diving and fishing tour in very reasonable price. Kayaking are available at resort. Overall Thanks for the team for making my stay wonderful. Always keep your good deeds.Highly recommended from my side.

Wonderful location just on the internal Koror lagoon. The sea is easily accessible and kayaks are available to visit the rocks and reef all around. Inside the resort the rooms are large and the common areas are well organized and comfortable. The owner is a nice lady, always available for any kind of need. The breakfast and dinner (upon request) are good and always freshly made. A little improvement would be expected on room clean and wifi service.

Good place to set up shop while visiting Beautiful Palau! Aside from being near the water, there isn't much else to do around the area. I contacted them three months prior to my arrival to set up my arrangement and agreed on a price but had a couple problems upon arrival. They forgot about me at the airport and I had to wait a while for them to return back after they picked up another person who was on the same flight as me. Also the price, along with the type of room we agreed to in our emails was not what we agreed upon and I had to pay more for a bigger room. Pros: - Geggie and her staff were very hospitable and friendly. - I got picked up and dropped off at the airport for free. - Located right near the water if you plan on doing any water activities (which is most like the reason you are visiting beautiful Palau!) - Room was comfortable and spacious (Stayed in a 1 person bedroom/bath) Cons: - Price was kind of expensive. - Wifi was bad (worked only at a specific area and sometimes it didn't work at all) - Limited things to do around area if you have no car Overall, its an okay place to stay just as long as you your days planned. Since it is fairly new (or renovated?), I would be willing to stay here again in the future because I can see Geggie and her team improving this place in the future because of their amazing hospitality and dedication towards helping tourists and locals enjoy Palau!
