it's an old hotel, with a small pool that gets sunlight till about 3pm. the rooms are old but clean, the staff is helpful, efficient, and friendly. it's a two-minute walk from the airport, and it's diagonally across from good restaurants (i.e. la terrasse). but most of all, moana hotel serves the best anchovy pizzas in the philippines . there...

Nice hotel with a cozy feel. This was my second time staying at this hotel. It's right next to the airport and within walking distance to down town. There's some great restaurants close by - try La terasse across the street! The hotel staff was very nice and helped us arrange a nice island hopping tour. Good value for money!

They have total... More

The one thing Moana has going for it is the close proximity to the airport in Puerto Princessa. It is only about 200m away. The basic rooms are slightly overpriced but they were clean and came with a hot shower and a TV. There is even a nice pool surrounding the rooms. Overall, a good choice for one night.

I stayed at the Moana for one night before taking off from Palawan. I took the small aircon room. It's not worth paying for the aircon, it's so noisy that you won't be able to use it at night. And even if you don't use the aircon, don't forget the earplugs: the place is very noisy. There is a videoK... More

I found this hotel while marooned in Puerto Princesa in April 2011 when the boat is was working on partially sank. I moved in after the owner, Paulo, told me he could get me a better deal than what I was paying at another hotel, and I ended staying for 6 weeks. I could have stayed forever! OK, if you... More

Our family stayed at this hotel for 13 nights in August 2011. THis was our home base while we attended a family wedding and traveled around the island. We were very comfortable here and it's location was ideal since we like to be central to things. The staff was so friendly and accomodating. The rooms were clean and basic and... More

This hotel is very convenient to those who like to travel Palawan. Normally, what travelers don't want to do is to rush back to the airport. Moana is just 5 minutes walk to the airport without the noise of the airplanes. They have a swimming pool inside the hotel, cabana, diving shops and souvenir shops. They can also arrange your...

Affordable! for just 1,150 per night you will be able to avail of a spacious air conditioned room with cable tv, hot and cold shower and a roundtrip airport transfers. One good thing is that it has its own swimming pool because in Puerto Princesa you can rarely find a budget hotel with a swimming pool. Another is its location.... More
