We stayed 8 nights on that island, to be closer (only 15 minutes boat ride) to the some of the best diving spot in the world. I wish we could have stayed many more weeks. I particularly appreciated: - the kindness of the staff - the professionnalisme of the diving guides, their awareness and respect for their environment - the...

An amazing location--a bit rustic, but absolutely beautiful and lots of off-island trips to take. I haven't been here since 2004, so it may have changed, but it was very relaxing when I was there. Good for divers.

This place is ideal for divers who look for peace and tranquillity and are happy with down-to-earth, simple accommodation. That being exactly my kind, I absolutely loved it. Starting with the diving, the underwater life is stunning: the coral is in great shape compared to most other places (certainly the Indian Ocean), there is plenty of fish big and small;...

Incredible piece of heaven on Earth. Must go if you are around and make sure you spend here more than one night. Gorgeous beach, pristine water. Accomodation was ok. There is no AC, only fun, but it was not problem to handle it as we were travelling on December, so it was "winter time" and weather was excellent, not too...

We went to Carp Island as part of our honeymoon. The island was lovely, completely remote and natural - as it should be! We had requested a nice, quiet bungalow and were told they would choose a nice once, instead we were put next to the bungalows which were being renovated and next to the 'public' loo... For an additional...

Where should I start?? Most of the reviews are accurate when it comes to the conditions, but i think alot of reviews were way too kind!........Over priced, Run Down, Unkempt, Uncomfortable, Not much to do, bad management, staff left much to be desired but who can blame them. Palau is a beautiful place and this "so called resort?" could be...

Not sure what to say... The island is beautiful with very shallow waters all around. We were here for 6 days. We went around the island in kayaks, staff brought them to us. Problem: Kayaks were leaking (holes in them!) and took in so much water (in the body of the kayak) that we would have sunken had we not...

Carp Island is best location in Palau Island. I went to carp island for many times and i wish i can do it every year because very relaxing place, peaceful and good for diving. Carp island is close to Pelilui island were the longest battle of Japanese and American.

Each person's experience is unique, but there are common traits of a location. I stayed for only 2 days, but I think that was enough for me. As many have noted, there is no air-conditioning in the bungalows. If you choose the Sunrise Villas, you will get the benefit of a nice breeze. I did not choose them and as...

Getting here takes about an hour by boat from Koror - which the resort will charge you for (but not young children). The island is set up for divers really but we just came just to chill out for a few days on a friend's recommendation and we're very glad we did. From here we took one tour out to...
