Where to stay in Palau

Since there are so many factors that can influence whether a stay on a vacation is pleasurable, a good value, the condition of the accommodations, the staff, the ambiance, the guests and one’s own expectations, I provide an assortment of places to help narrow your choice before checking reviews on Palau’s lodging choices.  I broke Palau’s hotels and motels down into different categories based on their offerings and price.
