Awesome stay at PRR. Friendly, attentive staff. Great location. The room was exceptional. My only disappointment was that the kayaks can only be used in the small area behind the resort.

Great hotel for our diving trip in Palau with Sam's Tours. Clean amenities. Nice breakfast buffet. Pool and Ocean facilities are great for families with young children.

not a nice hotel
Not such a nice experience to be honest. Room was totally humid-wet and not so clean. Waiters extremely lazy and you have to beg and walk to them if you want to drink something. Very ugly hotel complex.
Nina, sg1 night romance trip
Good 6.0
Nice hotel
This hotel was pretty nice. Staff overall was pretty good. They aren’t too attentive when you’re dining in the restaurant. Some of the bad things are the costs. Nothing is included, no shuttle services at all. My wife and I had the breakfast buffet one day. We each had a coffee, bottle of water and buffet. The cost was $53!!!! It easy that good either. The beach is pretty nice. Overall nice, but pricey.

Nice hotel, it has the only beach in Koror.
I was there on a business trip, but my wife joined me and we staid a few extra nights. The hotel is one of the nicest in the area. It has a small man made beach. This is from what I could find, the only beach anywhere near Koror BTW. The beautiful beaches of Palau are only accessible by boat. Be prepared to spend $100-$150 a day to get to any snorkeling, or beaches. There is nothing accessible for free. If you go in knowing this, you will see some very beautiful places. The food at the hotel is mediocre, but there are a couple of places within easy walking distance that are good.

Nice hotel. Beach and pool areas are nice, and unique on the island where most properties don't have them.
