Accessible to public transportation. 4. Near McDonalds and other food joints 5. Hotel has generator. The city frequents on power failure. 6. Very cheap Cons:... More

This place offers the best and most accessible in all you need. It is located with the main road-Rizal avenue; approximately 15 minutes away from the airport. It is so nearby to other sorts of establishments like: restaurants, convenient stores, banks and even the mall/s. This is one of the pioneers- with regards to hotel/hospitality/tourism services with the city. Offers... More

Was surprised to learned that they offer bbq with unlimited rice and iced tea. But when i tasted it, was even mor surprised learning that the bbq waa so delicious. Just here for a short lunch with my daughter. They also offer complimentary fruit bowl or dessert that time. I also love their shakes and fresh fruit juices.

Smacked right at the heart of Puerto Princesa City, Skylight Hotel Palawan is a gem for business and leisure travelers alike. At first glance, I thought that the hotel's facade is simple and unimposing. But my eyes widened with positive anticipation as I entered the hotel lobby. Painted an all-white, the hotel interior was a simple white, quiet most of... More

We ate here twice whilst in PP and have to say that the service and value was excellent. We both had bbq chicken and mango shakes each for 370 pesos! They even give complimentary ice teas during your meal and a small fruit platter at the end! Great value, really accommodating staff and good food, what more could backpackers want!

Just stayed one night before leaving the island. It's kind of a quirky place but easily worth the money considering the free breakfast. Wish we would have eaten there the night before as it was a packed house & the menu looked affordable. They did try to deliver us room service, which we did not order. Other than that, it... More

It was indeed a pleasant stay with the courteous and friendly staff attending to your needs right there and then. I also enjoyed their food choices specially the various selection of seafood. I even had a conversation with some of the staff who have the willingness to provide me information about things to do in the city. I recommend this... More

The hotel has basic amenities and complimentary breakfast. If you will be out for adventure the whole day, this is okay because it is along Rizal Ave and very accessible. The hotel is old so don't expect too much from this. Try their barbecue :-)

You can considering staying at the hotel if you just need a decent place to stay in. They just have basic room amenities and hotel facilities. Bathroom needs a little renovation. Breakfast was quite good for the rate. Staff was accommodating.
