We stayed here last Dec 18-20, 2014. A family of 4 in one room. I must say, we were impressed with the initial look and feel of the place, it looked like a cross between a hotel and a garden place-which was what we were looking for!! 😁 The room we stayed in opens up to the pool side and... More

The room we picked (condo 28) has a wall partition separating the room from the dining area. You have ample space to prepare and cook your own food(they have induction cooker and microwave, just ask for a... More

Literally patterned after the famous show of "Pinoy Big Brother"; you can't smoke in the veranda. You can't go upstairs when wet (how is that possible? We go to Puerto Princesa for beach hopping); plus their water source is so scarce!!!! I hope they do something about it. Price is ok!

We stayed in Big Brother on three different occassions on our trip. Each time, we had a different room, but the place was always spotlessly clean, the staff were always very helpful and friendly, and it was always relaxing to be there. The pool is only waist deep but still refreshing after a hot day, and the food and drinks... More

This place is OK if you only need a room to sleep. The room is full of ammenities, even a microwave. But the arrange all in odd way. For example, they put the A/C above your bed, made it not possible to turn it on or off because it is window A/C without remote controller. And also they have a... More
