West Plaza Downtown: Tired decor
I booked West Plaza by the Sea through booking.com but they were overbooked and wanted to move me to West a Plaza Malakal. This, for me, was too far out from where I wanted to be and so the compromise was West Plaza Downtown. The exterior of the hotel is quite grim to look at. The entrance is up a flight of stairs for which they have a baggage elevator but guests have to walk.
I had a room on the inside which means the window faces into the corridor. The room is very dimly lit as there is no natural light. There is a TV which has only one Japanese TV station, there is also a fridge and a safe. If you wish to use the safe you a required to pay a $50USD deposit for a key. The bathroom was tiny and the bottom of the bath was patched with fibre glass. I really thought hard about finding somewhere else to stay but in the end chose not to as I had already pre-paid and decided that I would rather spend my cash on diving. This hotel is very tired and in desperate need of renovation.
The positives are the location which is central to a number of restaurants, banks, shops etc and the staff as the hotel is run by a really wonderful lady who was so pleasant and helpful.
Would I stay here again? Only if I could not find an alternative. Would I recommend this hotel to fellow travellers? In one word - no.
The staff who are incredibly friendly and helpful.

Bayside Bed & Breakfast: A haven of tranquility
Situated in the village of Ngermid, at the eastern end of Koror, Bayside offers something very different in terms of accommodation. The property runs down to the shore and is a protected area in terms of development as it looks out on part of the Rock Islands which is a UNESCO a World a Heritage Site.
The accommodation is a private unit adjacent to the owner Cliff Terry's own home. It is really well furnished and offers a lovely furnished private deck on which you can sit and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the place. The accommodation has a TV and DVD player (there is also a huge library of films at your disposal); it has a fridge as well as tea and coffee making facilities ( tea and coffee are provided for guests); there is a telephone which you can use to make free local calls and free access to the internet. I found the internet here to have a good signal strength and to also be far quicker than a lot places on Palau. There is a good breakfast menu and this is brought to the deck area each morning at a time of your own choosing.
If you choose to spend time around this area (and I would strongly recommend doing so) then there is a private dock at the waters edge where you can take deck chairs down to sit and enjoy the scenery. If you are more active, there are kayaks provided free of charge for you to explore Nikko Bay or you can go out snorkelling.
As a place to stay in Palau whilst on vacation, this is a real gem and one that I cannot recommend highly enough.
The location is stunning and if you are looking for somewhere to really get away from it all then this has to be it.

Palau Pacific Resort: Private Beach Resort -Welcome to Paradise
I stayed at this beautiful private beach resort one night. Palau Pacific Resort is the one really luxury hotel it is very nice, the staff very friendly and kind but frankly not sure it is worth the value at over $350 a night. One alternative to use the beautiful beach and the facilities is get a $50 day pass with a 30 voucher to spent at the hotel. But this place has everything great dive center was the attraction for me. They also seems to be very family friendly watching how some of the families engaged and were treated.
Welcome to Paradise Beautiful to die for beach and the view amazing. Since I came to Palau with the intent of finding the 20 of Palau's Uighur and deliver a gifts from China i move on after one day this place is isolated and you need a taxi to go anywhere.

Palau Pacific Resort: the best place to stay in Palau
as my boss says, the palau pacific resort is the only hotel/resort to consider when staying in palau. this is true especially if money is no object. although on the expensive side, a stay at this resort is worth every penny from the amazingly cool bathroom (complete with electronic thingamajigs for the water closet!) to the great views of the pacific ocean from your balcony or patio to the uber friendly staff to the best beach in the area there's really nothing bad to stay about this place except the price. hehe.
i love the little mint chocolate bar they leave on your pillow every night when they do turn down services.

Palau Pacific Resort: Palau
You have to keep in mind this was a scuba diving vacation. Palau is predominantly a diver's destination but there is plenty explore for non-divers. I have to say this resort is one of the nicest and prettiest on the island, but that beauty also come with a price... Not ultra pricey but not cheap by any means. if you can afford it, you won't be disappointed. The rooms are spacious with great views of the ocean. Plenty of closet space, especially nice if you have dive gear. The entire grounds are manicured to perfection, a tropical paradise. The resort offers all the amenities including a beautiful pool, delicious restaurant & bar, hair salon, spa, gift shops, etc. Once you arrive you are welcomed by the staff with a fresh fruit cocktail and checking in is a breeze. They also have a small room off their beautiful lobby with computers. So if you feel the need to get online you can.
The pool area is gorgeous, the perfect place to enjoy a cocktail while enjoying the sunset. The restaurant off the pool is open air, so you can enjoy the sunsets from inside as well while enjoying a meal. The seafood is fresh and fantastic! They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, all are great. The tuna carpaccio i had one night was to die for. This is a 5 star resort with 5 star service, can't be beat!

Landmark Marina Hotel: Koror's "on the water" hotel
We arrived late at night (around 9:30 PM) and the entire hotel staff + hotel manager were waiting for us. They handed each of us a tropical drink and a cool, damp washcloth. Check in was very easy, quick, and done with the best customer service in mind. Our hotel rooms had a small but comfortable second bed set up for our 13 year old son. Our bed was queen sized. The comforter and pillow were VERY comfortable. The room came equipped with a large flat screen TV with about 10 cable channels as well as a channel specifically centered on the history of Palau and things to do during your visit. The room had hard wood floors which was very convenient because the hotel it's own marina/dock and we weren't afraid to drip in the room. The bathroom had a nice travel kit set up and the stand up shower (BEAUTIFUL) had shampoo, conditioner, and shower gel that smelled fantastic - so you don't need to pack very many toiletries. Our room came with a breakfast every morning - which in some places we've stayed is minimal to say the least. However, the LMH had a huge breakfast buffet available that included the regular fare (eggs, toast, breakfast meats, cereal) but also touched on some local foods as well (fresh fruits from the island, sweet cakes made from the local coconuts, etc) plus much more that changes daily. We had dinner twice at the hotel's restaurant. The selection of the menu was great and they have wonderful chef's there. The bar is stocked with anything you can imagine. We got to know our bartender, Dez, who greeted us by name each night. The views from anywhere in the hotel are great (I will admit our balcony had a view of a dive company but it wasn't horrible). You can take your meals in the air conditioned restaurant, outside on the veranda, or even on the dock - where the tables have umbrellas to block any sun. I would recommend this hotel above any of the other resorts because of the price, customer service, atmosphere, and in large part the hotel manager, William. Definitely 4 stars!!
The LMH has it's own marina, and therefor it's own dock. This is very convenient for visitors who'd like to take boating tours, kayak, snorkel, or just even take a quick swim before dinner. The rooms have a nice island decor (think tropical blues and blonde wood), large wide screen TVs, queen size beds (some in our group had rooms with two twin beds), extra beds that can be set up are also comfortable. The hotel's restaurant has a wide variety of dishes (from hamburgers to lobster) and an excellent breakfast buffet (though you can order off the breakfast menu). And most of all, the entire staff of LMH center around the best customer service we've ever had. Having said all that, I would like to mention that one of the main highlights of our stay in Palau was the manager of the Landmark Marina Hotel, William Tsung. If there was anything - anything - we needed, we just went to William and he would make it happen. For example; we were traveling with a group of 39 people and we ended up having an extra day in Palau. A couple of us had talked about wanting to arrange an all day snorkeling tour. We didn't even know where to begin. William overheard this and within the hour had an entire tour set up for us the next day. He even procured an underwater digital camera/videocam for my husband and I AND he put it on CD/DVD for us by the evening we returned from the tour. I mean...THAT'S GREAT SERVICE!! William went out of his way to make it a memorable stay for each of the 39 people we were traveling with.

Lehns Apartment: Clean and unfussed budget apartment
To get to Lehns Apartment, you have to walk to a winding path. On the way to the apartment, there is a Koror Elementary school you will pass by and a Chinese eatery serving Shanghainese noodles. Plenty of greens around the apartment area.
Each apartment unit comes with either double rooms or single room, furnished with a kitchenette, refrigerator, a living room with TV and a bathroom. Basic equipment provided at the apartment include towels, tap water, basic utensils such as pot, plates and a few cups.

West Plaza Desekel: In Town
It was convenient and clean. Close to the Palau College, banks, post office, & everything since it was in town. Below the hotel was a supermarket. But there is no pool.
Clean. Good airconditioning in room. Free coffee brewed in small lobby.

Palau Pacific Resort: Palau Pacific Resort
This is a first class hotel with beautiful grounds, lovely rooms, and excellent service. I have provided many photos of the hotel in the rest of this site.
The fish pond on the grounds is only 3' deep and contains blue star fish and a couple of manta rays, one of which would come to the side of the pond when you slapped the water and would allow us to pet it!

Try These 3
I personally did not stay at any hotels as I had relatives to stay with but their were three hotels that I saw that looked good.
1. Palasia Hotel Palau – The most modern looking Hotel. It features 165 rooms and is a tall building so it would have good views. Tel: (680) 488-8888
2. The Carolines Resort – In the hills just outside of Koror these bungalow style resort would give you great views. Tel: (680) 488-3754/3755
3. Palau Pacific Resort – On the beach facing the Rock Islands. The most expensive of the possibilities but its beachside location and luxury may justify the price. Tel: (680) 488-2600
I know My picture Doesn't relate to the Hotels but I couldn't make a tip without a picture.

VIP Hotel: Convenient location and spacious room
There is nothing fancy about the hotel, though the location is very convenient and its room has a big space. It has also very reasonable price system.
For a diver, you may need a space to put your gear. The hotel can offer you an enough space for that. Clean and reasonable. Staff are very kind and homey atmosphere.

Palau Pacific Resort
If you got the bucks, this is the place to stay in Palau, as it is the only beach front hotel in the Koror area.
Located about 15 minutes away from Koror on Arakabesang Island, this resort has a nice calm sandy beach, good snorkeling just off the coast, and its own dive shop and boat dock.
But, the best part of staying here is the end of the day, sipping on a beer watching the sun slowly set over the Pacific Ocean....
Is there more to life ?? I dunno, but that is enough for me, anyways....
