We stayed here for 2 days, the room was nice and clean; towels were provided. Breakfast is good. The location is great, 5 minutes or so going to airport. The staffs are friendly and accommodating. They arranged for free airport transfer. Will definitely recommend this to friends and family.. :)

One of the staff also offered to clean my tumbler because we don't have a dish washing liquid in the room. Those small things count a... More

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

We cannot however bring the aircon and the water heater any lower in position because its present height location in relation to the shower and or the room (for aircon) is... 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!
