Storyboard Beach Resort
Reviewed 23 January 2012

Our experience at Storyboard Beach Resort and Peleliu Island is one of the best vacations we have ever taken. Felanie was extremely helpful and friendly from the start, she arranged every detail for us from the time we got off the plane until we boarded to leave - I have never experienced such a carefree vacation. Felanie and her husband, Benjie, run the resort and are incredibly nice, respectful and trustworthy. The cottages are simple but very comfortable and clean. The food was excellent and Benjie goes out of his way to please his guests palates - he surprised us with fresh coconut water one night and fresh bananas the next day, just from our mentioning an interest in them. Peleliu is a small, charming island - definitely rent bikes and explore, it is the best way to see the island. Everyone on the island was very friendly and relaxed. And if you plan on diving during your trip, it can't be beat - it is located so close to many of the best dive locations around Palau.

Arranging a stay at the Storyboard Beach Resort from Canada was relatively easy to do- Felanie, one of the hosts, was prompt in responding to e-mails, pleasant and helpful over the phone- this marked the start to a great experience at the Storyboard. Transportation to Peleliu, as well as a day tour while on Peleliu, were arranged for us by Felanie and her husband Benjie.

I stayed at the Storyboard for two nights with three other friends (2 per cabin). The cabins were nice, consisting of a queen and a single bed each (this was arranged over e-mail), a fridge, air-conditioning, a great back porch with chairs and a working, warm shower (in a simple but nice bathroom). Linens were changed each day.

Our hosts, Felanie and Benjie, were friendly and accommodating (even bringing me coffee the second morning after I asked for boiling water the previous day to make my own). Benjie also drove my friends and I to a store to pick up some provisions, packed us lunches for our day trip around the island, picked us up at the dock when we arrived on Peleliu and stayed with us at the dock while we waited for our transportation to arrive (it was late) and pick us up after our stay was done.

Breakfast (which we didn't have because we weren't really 'breakfast people'), lunch (~$10) and dinner (~$15) can be purchased from the Storyboard and are cooked by the hosts (there aren't really restaurants on Peleliu). Dinners were served buffet-style and consisted of a number of delicious dishes (2-3 + rice + dessert per meal): fresh fish (served whole), fried chicken, rice, vegetable and meat stir fries, coconut crabs, fresh bananas and watermelon... We were also served coconuts to drink out of on the second night. Dining was outdoors in a nice, roofed, sandy eating area, with mosquito coils put out to help keep away the few bugs that there were (though an indoor option was available).

The grounds of the Storyboard were quite nice- knee-level stone walls and plants line the pathways between the cottages and down to the beach. While not the greatest beach (Palau isn't known for its beaches; there was a lot of seaweed when we were there), the benches and hammocks, as well as the cottages' own porches, still allow one to enjoy a relaxing, restful 'beach resort experience'.

Overall, my friends and I had a great time on Peleliu at the Storyboard Beach Resort. Our hosts were wonderful people, great chefs and very accommodating to our ever-changing schedule (it was hard to set things in stone until we were actually in Palau). Our stay was affordable and enjoyable.

I would highly recommend to anyone planning on visiting Palau both to come out to Peleliu and to stay at the Storyboard!

We really enjoyed they Storyboard Hotel ALOT!!! Benjie and Felanie are awesome hosts. If you are looking to disconnect this is definately the place. It is very basic, but totally comfortable, with the units now having window A/C (which is really nice on hot nights). The food was amazing with some of the best cooked fish I have ever had. They can, and will, arrange tours, transport to/from Palau, and pretty much take care of anything you need.

If you want to disconnect from the world this is the place to do it. The staff is more than helpful and friendly. You have access to do or not do anything. Wonderful!!
