We stayed at Carolines about a week ago for 10 days. I must say that the view outside our balcony was absolutely stunning. The kind of place where you can hideaway and reconnect back with nature. Really cozy with breathtaking jungle and ocean views. When I say "jungle" I mean jungle I woke up every morning not to my buzzing iphone but to the sounds of the roosters and birds as the sunrises. Sitting outside the patio in itself was a treat for me, fresh air while watching the sunrise/sunset and the exotic birds fly by (photographer's treat) -when it gets dark you'll see a billion stars...
The bungalows itself is basic with a rustic island feel which was a nice change for us (something different from the usual commercialized hotels). The bungalows a well maintained and is kept very clean. Maid service was available daily (fresh towels, coffee, fresh sheets etc.) Breakfast was delivered to our cottage every morning and
served with seasonal fruit. My favourite was the french toast ( I had it I think 4 days in a row =o)! The older lady who prepared the breakfast was a good cook / yummy home cooking ).
As guests at the Carolines we also had access to Palau Pacific Resort's facilities (pool, tennis courts etc.) which was a nice option on days we didn't dive and just wanted to relax. The only
thing that Caroline Resort can improve on is the road up to the bungalows it needed work but it didn't affect the overall experience of our stay.
Above all, we were very impressed with the service that was provided to us. It was definitely one of best we have ever had. All the hotel staff greeted us every morning as we walk on by and was very attentive to our needs. I would highly recommend Carolines to all my family and friends. We can't wait till we get back - absolutely loved it!

... shops. Dennis was on a tour. We got a taxi to take us to the Aquarium which was small but very interesting. We saw the famous "stingless" jelly fish that inhabit the inland lake who through evolution have lost their ability to sting because they have no natural predators in this lake. We then had the driver take us to the Etpison Museum. This is a private museum that is really very good. They had many native canoes there ...
... to some exploring. Inside the tunnel there were some large claims and the usual fish. When we had finished in the cavern we exited and floated along the reef wall with the current. As I was leaving the tunnel I saw a huge sea slug, I swear it was the size of my hand.
We had lunch on Ulong Island. Ulong was the site for the filming of Survivor Palau, so with this in mind and after we finished eating our bento boxes, we all set about creating ...

I don’t have much to add to this entry, Sacha has done a fabulous job of describing our trip to Palau and Jellyfish lake was really incredible.
Along with seeing amazing new wonders we also met some very interesting people and made a few new friends, Michael you are a great dive buddy, thank you for the good talks and laughs. We also buddied up with four ...
... to explore the nearby Rock Islands- DH refused the offer of a double kayak, aka divorce boat, and paid a big price because of a relatively strong wind. My cannons, although somewhat rusty, had me almost hydroplaning along the water but DH (who never graduated from the kitten-weight section of the Tottenham Gym) developed the shakes and we had to turn around before the tide carried her all the way back to Manila. Very scenic adventure nonetheless.
Dive day! ...
