A little late but still I want to write about the place. Been here last May 2014 and the place is pretty good. The staff are hospitable and very helpful. The rooms are clean and big. There are areas to relax outside such as a small library and some hammocks.

I am one of those filipina who married a white guy, an English man to be specific. my husband and 11 year old son are so skeptical, conservative and very picky in just about everything. I myself is very hard to please specifically on cleanliness. Having said all of those the SUBLI GUESS CABIN exceeded on all of those and... More

We stayed at Subli which was recommended by my sister and her friend who grew up in Palawan. The picture of the cabin was enough to convince me to stay there. I wanted a "native" feel and got more than that. The setting is perfect, with a huge mango tree in the middle and several hammocks under it. I only... More

Thanks a lot for the great review! As much as we would like to take credit for the "perfect setting", we have to admit that we have nothing to do with it, and it is all the work of our Father in heaven. It is a real blessing for us to have this natural ambience. Special thanks to you for... More
