The resort is 59 km north of puerto princesa, we rented our own vehicle so it was not a problem, I think they offer airport pickup for 2500 php. The resort is charming, large rooms with mini fridges, beds are king sized, good ac. Room value is good, food is a bit pricey but good. Manager Elena is very helpful,... More

Filipinos in general are extremely friendly and the owner of this place is friendlier than most!! Really reasonably priced for what you get and there's a large private beach. Bring bug spray for the evenings and overnight. Some of the reviews say there's no wifi but that is no longer true. There's wifi in the restaurant area but not in... More

it's very nice place, but a liitle bit remote. there's no restaurants, shops or some entertainments nearby. they have thear own restaurante, but the choise is quite limited. the beach is nice, but it's not good for sweeming, cause it's shallow. the place itself is very quiet and romantic, good for family vacation

This little hotel seems like it is in the middle of nowhere - and it is! There is only one TV (in the restaurant/lobby area) and no WIFI. Like many small places, there is no brewed coffee. It does have a beautiful beach, hammocks to lay around in and a very friendly staff. With my eating preferences (strict vegetarian) my... More

Loved our stay here. Extremely friendly staff made us feel like we were staying with relatives (the relatives you actually enjoy visiting). Located about an hour outside the city proper. No TVs or WiFi and cell service (Globe) was hit or miss unless down on the beach. Very quaint feeling and a perfect place to disconnect from the hussle and... More

Our experience in Nitivos Beach Resort is a pleasant one, Elena was/is very helpful and warm, definitely not the best resort in Puerto Princesa, but to us, it was ideally located. It was close to all the sights we wanted to see, the staff was just right. They were present, attentive without being too intrusive. A quiet place, clean, overall... More

peaceful and quiet location with a friendly manager to make our stay feel more welcoming. rooms are basic but livable. food was great and the fruit smoothies were amazing. Elena our host even gave us a filipino hand made gift of a rain maker for both parties which was a nice final touch to our stay

We all had a terrible experience at Nitivos. Firstly, we were not well informed about its exact location and the manager was not very responsive when we were trying to contact her. The hotel is in fact on the east coast of Palawan an hour drive from Sabang and 90 minutes from PP. The place and rooms are decent, although... More

After Sabang, we stayed in Nitivos for 2 nights (wished it was longer) as we needed a relaxing time before heading back to Manila.This resort is perfect for those seeking peace and quiet away from the city/town. It is a small family run business, all the staff are friendly and very helpful. Elena, our host was very welcoming and made... More
