I like the natural setting with all the plants. Food was great. Grounds were meticulously cared for. Staff was friendly & helpful. Even the cleaning crew would say "good morning sir" as they passed you by. The animal statues among the plants were more for kids though. It's off the beaten path, so you have to arrange for transportation if... More

(If you preorder you pay only 200 PHP and can select up to about 270.) Pool nice with bar and quite reasonable. Green hotelarea where you can relax..... More

Biggest hotel room I've stayed at so far (excluding family rooms), though I haven't stayed at too many places... The place is really nice and near the airport. It has a Jacuzzi, a pool and a pool bar - they have a regular bar too! The place really comes alive at night when all the wonderful lights shine all through... More

Visited Puerto Princesa, Palawan from Jan. 7 to 10, 2013. We stayed for 3 nights and we loved the place. Staff are all helpful and welcoming. The room is spacious and relaxing. The only negative thing I can think of about this hotel is the breakfast, very limited choices. If ever I will visit Puerto Princesa again, I will have... More

My fiancee and i stayed here for a few evenings and we loved it. The hotel is full of artifacts that really give this place it's character. The staff were great and any transfers were all done hassle free. The pool was great and room was spacious. We enjoyed it so much. A tricycle ride to get to the main... More

The hotel staff were very polite and courteous and the room was big and clean. The only negative about our trip was dealing with the touring activities...specifically the Zipline in Irawan Park. There was a choice of zipline or 1 hour river massage...we took the river massage option, but it was very disappointing. There was no river, only a small,... More

This resort is not amidst the commercial strip of Rizal St and popular restos like Ka Lui, Kinabuch, so you have to take a tricycle all the time. It is quiter and suggested for families with kids or honey mooners. The forest theme will be enjoyed by kids. Rooms are spacious enough. Bathroom at room 29 is really wide. Front... More

stayed there for 4d3n. Very accommodating to our requests such as adding one more person to a max 6 suite. The room was big enough for one more mattress so it was no problem. breakfast was quite good but with very few choices.... lunch.... can't say the same as we didnt enjoy the food combo package during our 1st day....

I like this hotel as it is far from downtown but just a few minutes away if you want to go there. For it's size, It is secluded, quiet and clean. The rooms are spacious, the service at the front desk, restaurant and cleaners are excellent. The pool is not that bad although the jacuzzi is not hot. The food... More

The set up of the hotel is very quirky which is the big plus, cool pool and pool bar area... The staff are pretty useless, even though there are a million of them... They mean well but haven't been trained... The hotel is miles away from the action and the tricycle is not a free service as they promote.. The... More
