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 ...

The night dive was being done on Buoy #6 which is the site of a smallish shipwreck. The wreck is home to a pair of very large and a not quite as large Maori Wrasses – both of which were asleep in the actual wreck before we came along and shined our torches at them. On the dive a very large lobster was found, as well as a spotted crab and a turtle (first one since our visit to the markets).
I managed to get a sting from ...
... having a current that can rip your fins and mask off you. Thankfully we did not encounter a fin ripping off current. That said the current we encountered can strong enough to make everyone’s bubbles go horizontal instead of vertical and it was strong enough to give our ability to hook on to the reef a good test! The dive itself was every cool, there were heaps for large reef sharks patrolling the drop off and quite ...

... that tethered us to the reef while the current pushed against us- much the same as floating in a wind tunnel I suppose. And while we were hoping that the hooks would hold, we had sharks, groupers, turtles, and numerous other colourful and large underwater critters put on a real show for us. Even DH forgot that she was a nervous diver and had one of her best dives ever. With the diving finished we headed for our primary reason for coming to Palau- Jellyfish Lake. After ...
