Carp Island Resort is a private island with a view of the outter rock islands and the state of Peleliu in the distance. With marked paths for nature hikes, kayak rentals, and a beach volleyball court (to name a few), there's never a dull moment. Area is very quiet and peaceful, grouds kept impeccably clean, and if the warm island...

For those who want all the comforts of home....stay home. Part of the adventure of travel is to experience new things. I have read several cruel revues from fellow americans about carp island resort, cruel because they were so wanting a posh experience. I have been to Carp several times, I lived in Palau for 13 months and my visits...

10 minutes to Blue Corner!(pic) depending on the tides. Are you kidding me? Anything that close to The Spot (a little overtouched) is a winner right out of the gates. Carp Island is an eco lodge that provides its guests with what they can grow or raise, chicken, pork, limited vegetables, papayas and of course daily fresh fish. (There aren't...

We had planned to stay 3 nights but left after 1 night. The rooms on the beach were spartan - bathroom outside of door on the porch and showers awful; 2 wooden double beds with bedspreads for sheet and covers, light bulbs hanging from ceiling, no reading lights, no carpets, and only a ceiling fan. Total Cost per night is...

Hello, It's true the rooms of Carp Island resort were, in the past, quite old. But now we are renovating them all, so this critic is already from the past! We are new staff (assistant managers), European (French and Spanish) and we've been employed to adapt this resort to European and American taste (food, comfort, activities, diving center..) This island...

Positives: Great friendly, front desk staff. Close to many dive sites (German Channel, Blue Corner, Blue Hole, Big drop off, New drop off, etc.). Not too expensive ($143 inc. tax for a seaside cottage + extra $41 for meals = $20 dinner, $12 lunch, $9 breakfast). Nice, homecooked, All-you-can-eat meals. Great ice tea! Nice windy breeze if you sit in...

I can't begin to explain my stay at the Carp Island Resort. It was extraordinary. It's prestine beach and nearby divesites are what makes this such a unique place. The staff was very friendly and the time I got to spend there was quite memorable and I am planning to come again next summer.

My girlfriend and I stayed at Carp Island for 3 days/2 nights. Our dive guide was great, but the dive operation is not as good as Sams on Palau. Carp Island is closer to the majority of the dive sites which means less travel time, but I didn't mind the stunning daily 45 minute boatrides through the rock islands from...

Returned from a 2-week vacation in Palau where we had a wonderful time diving, snorkeling, fishing, hiking and kayaking on Carp Island. We were able to balance all that activity with some rest and relaxation on this peaceful island. We really appreciated the Eco-friendly mentality of the Carp Island Resort owners which is much needed in this part of the...
