We stayed here In combination with Palau Central Hotel. The views are amazing, and there is nothing like having your breakfast brought to you every morning on the deck! Not sure what kind of bed is there, but it is the most comfortable I have ever slept in. We did the short hike around the property to see all the Japanese remnants from the war which is very interesting. At night, we loved listening to the symphony of birds, insects, and possibly wildlife as during walks to/from the shuttle that would take us into town. I highly recommend staying here to have an authentic experience!

Such a fantastic experience! My husband and I were there for four nights - then gone for a few days and back for 4 more nights. We were so excited to return for our second stint. The staff is friendly, helpful, accommodating and knowledgeable. We looked forward to talking with Krin, Abby and Nelson each time we saw them. The bungalows are so comfortable and give you nice privacy. The balcony is amazing - rainbows are seen regularly. Breakfast is delicioius! There are no restaurants on site, but staff will give you a ride to anyplace you'd like (a page with prices for rides is found in the office). Staff will also make suggestions of places to go with things going on (ie, Saturday night market). Laundry is available. Overall, Caroline's was a fantastic experience and we WILL be back again!

Great staff, great location, friendly staff. The rooms are very clean with incredibly comfortable beds. The breakfast is delicious. It’s the best find we’ve made in a long time. I am so disappointed to only have stayed one night. I will be back.

I thoroughly enjoyed my third stay at Carolines for a business trip that included a little scuba diving, too, with Palau Dive Adventures. The staff at Carolines is really delightful and help with any little detail: arranging to have a rental car delivered, coordinating with the dive operators, making restaurant reservations, advising on covid testing requirements, etc. I look forward to my fourth visit!

Love the quiet, lovely bungalows with the most comfortable bed ever! The food and staff were great, helpful in every way...but the views were the best thing of all! The location is close enough to get to work in Koror, but the location makes you really feel like you are in Palau, with views of the Rock islands.

My wife and I stayed at Palau Carolines both times we visited Palau and look forward to staying there again on future visits for work and vacations. We love the view of the Rock Islands from the charming bungalows as well as the cheerful, attentive service from the whole staff. The row of bungalows reaches up to the top of the highest point of Ngerkebesang Island, where they have a deck for picnics and happy hours along with WWII Japanese guns and artifacts. The breakfasts are brought to the rooms, and the balconies make for a perfect setting for starting the day. The staff in the Palauan Bai-design main house are very helpful in arranging reservations at restaurants or other services. Highly recommended!

We stayed at Palau Carolines on either end of a 10-day paddling trip in the Rock Islands. It was the perfect place for us to stay, and if we ever come back to Palau, we will stay at Palau Carolines without question. The bungalows are beautiful and the views are wonderful. The place is laid back and the service is outstanding. The office team are always joyful, ready to help, and make anything you need happen. We especially want to shout out Nelson who helped us get around Palau and was so kind and is an excellent and safe driver! The morning breakfast delivery to our porch was a wonderful way to start each day. For various reasons, we checked out a couple of the other places to stay in Koror, from the fanciest to others right in town. For us, who are adventurous travelers that like staying in unique places that are unpretentious and full of natural beauty, peace and quiet there is nothing else like Palau Carolines! They have plans to grow in the future, and we hope they don't get too big to the point they lose their peaceful and laid back charm, but I think it'll be a while until it gets there.

Every day is another day in paradise at Carolines. The view and soft sounds of the rainforest were great ambience. The bungalow was in great condition and found the breakfast delivery convenient before diving. We felt the only thing missing was an infinity pool, but the learned one was under construction along with eight more bungalows further up the mountain. We don’t have enough great things to say about the staff. Note: Management’s late check policy ends a bit early - it’s a half day rate and the only flight leaves after midnight - this was a small disappointment.

Palau Carolines Resort is true island magic. It has the best location, just outside downtown and stunning views of sea, distant islands, sky, sunset and green hills. Koror can be busy and overwhelming at times while Carolines is a quiet and relaxed retreat. The rooms are charming, comfortable, authentic and surrounded by tropical gardens and historic sites. However, the real magic is in the staff. Guest requests are met with hospitality, cheerfulness and most importantly, solutions. Robert, Abby, Nelson, Kasheem, Lina and Limpa made my trip one that I'll fondly remember. From reservation changes to late night airport pick-ups and drop-offs to my personal laundry to help changing a tire they were always happy to assist. I almost forgot to mention fantastic breakfasts in bed and stunning Palau! What more could anyone ask for?
