Prior to our livaboard diving trip, my group of 12 overnighted at this hotel for two days. The grounds look exactly like the pictures. The staff was VERY helpful and friendly. No complaints regarding the personnel. We had the deluxe rooms: a living are and a large king sized bed. The air conditioners worked nicely for us. However, there were... More

There were 8 of us adults and 2 babies who shared 2 suites with 3 beds. The hotel calls these suites villas. We initially checked in with one of the villas that have only 2 beds and a corrugated roof view facing a mango tree. Management heeded our discontent and moved us instantly to a 3 bed villa overlooking their... More

When going to Palawan, the hotel is not really that important because you'll be spending most of your time outside. This is the usual perception that people have when going to Puerto Princesa so it's nice to see a hotel that actually made us want to stay within the hotel premises. The staff are very courteous. They are very accommodating... More

One night stay only before going to EN. Big pool , quiet place and above all great food. The wife loves the crab and reasonable price. A little bit far from the center of the city, but we like the seclusion. The staff are friendly and attentive to our needs.

Good place to stay. We rented a Villa for us coz we're 5. So comfortable. The Bed, linen designed to make us feel in a Royal place or room. Pool is well equipped and they clean the whole place from hour room to pool to the whole garden resort. So relaxing, (feels True Royal person). Food is deliciously prepared and... More

Stayed at the Royal Oberoi for three nights. Hotel is in need of a good renovation but is relatively clean and tidy. THe staff are excellent and very helpful. Great pool area. While the hotel 'boasts' internet included/available it is like the days of dial up speed, extremely slow, there is no way that you could live stream. It appears... More

I chose to stay at this hotel because I had not read any bad reviews of it on the agoda website. I should have looked a little harder. Honestly, the room that I stayed in was fine. The TV reception did cut off for a few hours one day after a short blackout, and the wifi was weak, but overall... More
