Greg and I stayed here last November 29-December 2, upon the recommendation of our friend Jason Lewis. Our stay was short but we really enjoyed it. The place was very nice,spacious, clean , quiet and very relaxing. We stayed on the second floor,I believe it was the Super Deluxe, and overlooking the pool and dining area. The pool was also...

We stayed for a week and found the room to be clean, tidy and comfortable, but a bit on the small side. We did find the lack of drawers a bit unusual. The place was well presented and it had a wonderful pool. The meals were very tasty, but lacked a bit in consistency. Overall, we enjoyed our stay, and... More

This was the nicest hotel we stayed in, while travelling the Philippines. Our room was clean and spacious. The hotel staff were beyond helpful, they were always happy to assist. Without doubt what made it stand out from the rest was the pool area. We spent Christmas day here and it consisted of swimming and sitting by the pool bar... More

Our stay at the Royal Oberoi was excellent. The room was nice and clean, and the staff was excellent. The food was good, and there was a pretty decent selection. The front desk staff helped us book our tours to the Underground River and El Nido, and they didn't mark it up a ton. Actually, I don't even know if... More

So we stayed here for two nights in August. At the time, Royal Oberoi was running two special promotions to help bring in guests. The first was a special 50% room promotion that only applied to residents of Palawan. So, when checking into the counter, you look to the left and see a giant sign saying "50% OFF ALL ROOMS... More

Pro: Great pool, great food and friendly staff and owner, good value. Con: Location (where are we?), old spooky room, outdated building. Overall, if you want to have just a quick hotel to sleep at night cause you spent most of your time travel around (or like us island hopping), then I would recommend this hotel. It was nothing fancy,... More

It's a place with a combination of outdated premises, excellent food, room buildings placed with their back to the swimming pool witch doesn't give good impression, beautiful around 30 m long swimming pool, very bad management never replying any emails and very bad ar organising tours. Don't believe the information on their website. At the same time very helpful staff.... More
