Beautiful, ocean front hotel with Asian landscaped ponds and gardens. Very nice Waves restaurant and bar. Inside and outside dining. Two outdoor bars near the large swimming pool. We had a spacious, clean, corner suite that was recently remodeled in a classy, contemporary style. It featured a large living room with a porch and loungers, dining bar, large bedroom with 2 queen beds and huge closet, another balcony off the bedroom, a beautiful bathroom with free standing tub, separate shower, enclosed toilet and a second 1/2 bath. This was more like a private apartment. Great, friendly services at the hotel and in the dining room where we had a wide selection of choices for breakfast.

First, there are not that many hotels in Palau, and there are not that many resort-like hotels in Palau, and there are even fewer hotels with their own private beach as well as a large pond with dozens of tropical fishes and a sea turtle. Fortunately Palau Royal Resort had all these and while expensive, it was not something that is over the top (unlike the other 5* hotel) Palau Royal Resort is not a 5* hotel but I think my stay there was 5*. The room was newly renovated during the COVID times. We had the ocean view which had the view of the beach as well as the sea (although it was not much of an ocean because there was an island not far from the beach so you won't get to see the horizon much) The room was spacious, the toilet, the shower, the bathtub and the wash basin were all in separate areas so there was no need to fight for these :) and they provided durable rubber flip flops (those you could wear on a beach) instead of those white flimsy slippers that the moment you left the hotel they would fall apart. The location of the hotel was quite near to the downtown of Koror though you would not really be expected to walk there. Transportation could be a problem in Palau but there was really no need to go to the downtown when you are at sea every day (unless you needed to grab a simcard, and yes that's a major problem in Palau as not many shops would sell these unless you go to the downtown) But there is a kiosk just across the road so you could get what you need. As mentioned before it had its own beach (which there was a bit of coral to see if you snorkel there but again, you wouldn't want to stay in the hotel in Palau to spend your day) The hotel also came with its own private pier so your tour boat could drop you off there instead of more travelling after a long tiring day. There was only one restaurant in the hotel and the breakfast was generally good (buffet style) every morning. At other times they were all a la carte and the price was not too outrageously expensive. Twice a week there was a dinner buffet and the food choice was surprisingly good for the price you paid (they had Singaporean Chili crab and Salmon Sashimi) but then it seems the food was not refilled. (To be frank there wasn't that many ppl there when we were there) The hotel had free drinking water dispenser on each floor so you would never be thirsty. If you are bored of the same menu everyday you could go to the neighbouring restaurants and hotels for similar foods (most serve American cuisine) The service was in general good except the staff who checked me in knew nothing about my Expedia GOLD membership and would not give out the perks that Expedia mentioned. It wasn't much (20% off spa) which we were not interested anyway, but that was the only negative experience we had.

The hotel is well located in Koror city. The staff are extremely helpful and courteous. The food is quite ok but they had no variety of icecream beyond strawberry and chocolate. Rooms are clean but very late in cleaning. Sometimes past 5 in the evening. Otherwise a very good hotel with excellent staff. Worth a stay

Service: Polite and efficient. Plenty of staffing despite being there over Christmas. Room: Clean and modern. Nice tub for a bath and to rinse your dive gear. Good AC. Amenities: Lovely little beach with adjacent pool. Lots of room to lay back and relax or take a dip. Breakfast was varied and fresh. Room service was prompt and delicious.

I have decided to celebrate my countdown to 2024 in Palau Royal Resort because of a few reccommendations and of course because of my crew. I was hoping that it will turnout good but all i can say is, nahhhh i could have celebrated it somewhere else, the NYE reccommendation that i thought, would be the same as the countdown to 2023 when it was Ms. Diana and Chef Neil's (man, it was a blast). I mean where are those individuals now? I am also disappointed by your complicated WIFI system, i mean c'mon it is year 2024! get your hotel a better service for internet.

Facilities are great. Had a harbour/garden view room which was very comfortable. Breakfast buffet food was excellent but found that the dinners were average for what they cost (both buffet and menu items) so we tended to go to a local restaurant instead. Would happily return and stay here again.

The ambiance, view, and services were first class. There was so much to do and to explore. Five days were not enough, even though we stayed busy from sunrise to breathtaking sunset each day. Aside from a very mediocre dinner menu, the breakfast and lunch menus were very tasty and they had a nice selection to choose from the buffet. Rooms were spacious and very clean, and the management was courteous and attentive. I would definitely recommend the Palau Royal Resort, based solely on the staff and their services, but the combination of everything else makes this a must stay. My family is already thinking about a return trip in the next year or two. Until then, my heartfelt thanks to the wonderful people of Palau for a vacation of a lifetime!

The Palau Royal Resort provided the rooming block for the Pacific Judicial Council's 2022 American College of Trial Lawyers (ACTL) training in Koror from November 9 - 11, 2022. The Pacific Judicial Council (PJC) comprises the Chief Judges of American Samoa, Guam, Micronesia, the Northern Marianas Islands, and Palau. It assists in developing and delivering continuing judicial education and court professional training for its member courts. The participants in the 2022 ACTL training included Chief Justices, Justice, Judges, and attorneys. Ms. Diana Bhuyian was our POC and provided excellent customer service from the start of negotiations until the last guest left departed. She understood the group's needs due to her experience providing top-notch hospitality services to high-level clients. Ms. Bhuyian and her staff went over and above what was expected to ensure the needs of our group were met. The friendly front desk staff responded quickly to requests. The Food and Banquet staff executed a wonderful dinner at the Breeze Bar. The level of hospitality experienced was exceptional. PJC hopes to hold future events in Palau and have the opportunity to work the Ms. Bhuyian and the staff of the Palau Royal Resort again.
