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

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

What I noticed about the room is that it was very small but efficient. The television hangs near the ceiling. We didn't watch much television but it's probably hard to look upwards for a long time. They provide you with a small refrigerator and an electric stove. Also cooking and dining utensils. It was a little funny that there was... More
