This hotel I think is fine if you just need a night to stay in between travels, or to catch an early morning flight. The rooms are ok, nothing flash, but comfortable. The suite villas are big and can sleep up to 6 people since they have three queen sized beds. The location of the hotel isn't great. It is... More

The photos they posted on trip advisor and their website are just deceiving! This is just the worst hotel we've ever been. The rooms are disgusting, old and smelly! The beds were uncomfortable and the toilet was horrible! The staff were all clueless! They even charge you for the airport transpo to and fro, where in other hotels are offering... More

I booked their deluxe room over two months ago via Agoda. Then I get an email yesterday (a litle bit more than a week before our trip) from Agoda saying that my reservation has been canceled...with no explanation as to why. To make things worst, the Royal Oberai thinks they are making a good professional move by putting me in... More

This review has been a long time coming. Sorry for the late review. We spent 2 nights in this resort hotel April 2013 and we've been gushing to our friends about this place ever since. The owner and her husband made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. So friendly and easy to talk with that we never... More

This hotel is well suited for those who wish to relax and do absolutely nothing. My wife and I spent two days there before heading to El Nido. The staff are good and the food although not wonderful is good to eat. What makes this place is the pool, it is well maintained and clean and sitting in the water... More

We arrived at the airport of Puerto Princesa, and the hotel was a bit far from it, and a bit far from downtown. But once we arrived, we saw the pool and the garden, which were literally amazing! Only for that, I would recommend the hotel. We arrived around 9 pm, and there was no problem to eat at their... More

My partner and I (Australian) spent 2 weeks at this resort. We found the staff to be friendly and accommodating. The rooms/grounds where much larger then the resorts in the city and well worth the 100 Pesos (15mins) to travel there. The restaurant food was delicious and plentiful and no request was too much for the staff. I would highly... More

Really enjoyed the stay and the place is very romantic and relaxing, staff are really friendly and approachable with a smiley face every time. Enjoyed the Longganisa with garlic rice and mango slice breakfast. Food is nice with affordable prices. Overall Had good time in the Resort, thanks to Dan (attendant), Lanie (Attendant) and all others for their great hospitality.... More

Having just returned from a quick two-night stay I wanted to quickly recap on a very impressive little operation. First of all a lot of credit has to go out to the ever-present, and wonderfully helpful Pong. No request was too big or small and he has such an impressive attitude towards guest relations and customer service. Having booked last... More
