Almost everyone go to Palau for diving and watersports. This hotel provides a different hobby opportunity:ham radio. Stayed on 2 occasions for this purpose. Room is clean and a/c works perfect. The staff very friendly. Restaurant is quite nice with local fish and beer.

This is a dated hotel that feels like a 1960's mom and pop hotel. Yes, they have air conditioned rooms. However, the rooms look like college dormitory rooms and the television reception is virtually non-existent. Internet access is available for a fee. The bed linens were clean, as was the shower. 'Consider staying here, if you need an affordable place... More

Clean and served its purpose for a place to sleep for a few hours before the next departure. Not expensive and okay bed, clean linens and bathroom. Really old with doors opening to outside area. But had a cafe which was nice. If visit again would stay if needed a place to sleep for 4 hours.

Nice little hotel right on the water with great views of the sunrise and sunset. Its close enough to town that you can walk. There is a restaurant with the local red rooster beer on tap and huge pizzas. If you are going to palau you cant go wrong with the west plaza

1 - Only one key per room even if dual occupancy. WTH? Why? Such an inconvenience, and such a cheap move. 2 - Staff was very nice, even the rest/bar staff. 3 - Bar was understaffed for our tour and so there was a huge wait for food or drinks the first couple mornings. 4 - Roaches everywhere.

Location is good, with an easy walk into town. Restaurant is available at the hotel, though we didn't use it. Room facing the water was nice. Noise in the hallway was a little loud and there wasn't any ventilation in the room. Yes, the window to the hallway could be opened, but it really wasn't enough. The bathroom had no... More
