This hotel appears to have been intended as a luxury hotel. Maybe they ran out of money or something. Anyway, most is acceptable. Clean rooms, good service, decent location. But the BEDS! God, what a horror show! Did they buy them from Guantanamo? Torture. Imagine a thin bit of foam rubber over a rock hard platform. Two nights with very... More

The hotel would be considered as mid- range by American standard. Staff is very helpful, going out of their ways to find the information you need. Good amenities. The only hick is that there are night crawlers, which would scurry along as soon as you turn the lights on.

We stayed here 2 nights and appreciated the cleanliness of the rooms, the included breakfast buffet with omelete/pancake station and airport shuttle, all for $58/night. The hotel also had a good recommendation for a restaurant within walking distance, Diver's Dream. Just turn right at the main street and hang another right at the first street and it is right on...

We stayed there for 2 nights. We got the room without the window but that was not a problem for us as we only slept in it, during the day we were outside. We were aware of such possibility before we arrived. If you are not ok with such a room you can choose the one overlooking the bay and... More

We stayed here for 3 nights when we visited Palawan as it was the only option available which could accommodate all 7 of us. We initially thought we had booked a penthouse suite for all 3 nights until we were told on arrival that they had made an error and had to move us to separate rooms on the final... More

This is a lovely hotel, I stayed here for 4 nights with my Girlfriend in November 2014. I found the room was lovely, the staff were extremely helpful and friendly & the wifi was really good (free also). The breakfast buffet was divine! They have an egg counter where you can get your eggs done any way you want, fresh... More

Has fast Wifi access and the AC works really well. It is conveniently located next to a mall so you can get any necessities from within the building itself. The view from the room is nothing spectacular but in regards of having a clean room to stay while in Palawan, I would come back again. Got bitten by a couple... More

The worst hotel I have stayed having visited over 40 countries... Saw several cockroaches on the first night, then a few ants... Towel looks off white, so had to buy some cheap towel nearby to cope with the 2 nights I stayed. Staff could not understand British English. When asking for a bottle of purified water, was told have to... More

We booked the superior room....but after we saw the room we were really disappointed. It faced a depressing alley of sorts and was dark...no natural light. I asked if we could have a room with a view of the bay....and, fortunately we got one at a price. The new room was absolutely superb...great view, balcony, large and bright, good internet,... More
