Palo Alto is a true oasis in Puerto Princesa! The staff is very accommodating and friendly, Palo Alto also offers a free nightly shuttle to downtown Puerto for dinner. The pool at Palo Alto is awesome and the grounds are clean and peaceful.

My boyfriend and I had an incredible couple of days here. It is an incredible oasis in the middle of Puerto Princesa, with gorgeous wooden exteriors, the most charming pool covered in expansive trees, and the most amazing service. It offers a myriad of little extras, a free shuttle into town or the airport, arrival drinks, poolside services, packed breakfast... More

Arrived after 10 hours of travel, and Palo Alto was the perfect place to unwind and relax. Driver picked us up from the airport on time and were welcomed with a delicious drink. We then toured the grounds which was full of scenic details. We then cooled off in the shaded pool and lay back in their treehouse lounge area.... More

Stayed here with our family for several nights. We booked our room including tours to Underground river and Honda bay- it was fine, and we can recommend the tours. The hotel is placed a bit far from Puerto and not in walking distance to any 'stores' at all.. You need a tricycle to go anywhere- but that way is ok,... More

I’m not too sure where to begin with my review of Palo Alto, as this good B&B could so easily be GREAT! The first thing I’ll say though is check your expectations. Palo Alto does not profess to be a hotel – it is first and foremost a B&B, and I suspect that their excellent website, alongside their great TA... More

Wow, this place is seriously incredible! It's not only beautifully constructed, but it is was built with the environment in mind. I love how much natural wood was incorporated and how the structure was built around the existing trees. The family who owns and runs this hotel is amazing. They have put so much thought into this property and truly... More

Love this choice that I made going for Palo Alto Bed & Breakfast when we visited Palawan! The place is exquisite and definitely my kind of "island nature" style. I love all the wood that they used and how they incorporated real live trees into the structure (or maybe worked around them). The lobby is superb and cozy, the courtyard... More

Palo Alto is a Bed and Breakfast type of accommodation. The architecture is indigenous and very local which adds to its rustic appeal. Much of the structures are made of concrete with bamboo claddings. The lobby while small is very appealing. The bed I must admit is a tad small. The cushion is an ordinary foam and not a mattress...

Never have I stayed in a place more lovingly built, maintained and run by its owners. The uniquely intricate golden wood structure creates a relaxing Eden in the jungle, a calm which you would struggle to ever leave if you had nowhere else to go. As a work of passion, you know you have arrived at a place built by... More
