We got a great deal for this hotel and were impressed from the moment we arrived, airport service was quite slow but once at the hotel, it was all we wanted and more. Large spacious room & bathroom, oversized comfortable bed and relaxing private atmosphere, we had no outside view but just by visiting the restaurant you got a pretty... More

Rooms are spacious and well equipped. The hotel staff is very friendly and responsive. A doorman will always help you with transportation or showing direction. Airport transfer is free of charge. Sunlight Hotel has a very convenient location, just 5 min from the city bay walk. A mall is in the same building, so you may do your shopping in... More

Fooled by the pictures on vaious travel sites i had expected quite a luxurious hotel. Joined onto and above a shopping mall the hotel still smelt badly of smoke from the fire in the shopping mall 4 months earlier. The hallways were quite dark as was our room as the only window (although floor to ceiling) was onto a shared... More

This hotel is near the airport, near shopping, had a good view and an attentive staff, but the downsides out weighted the good for us. From the pictures and the ratings in Agoda, we expected an above average experience, but we were disappointed.The promised "WiFi in the public areas" was on the fritz the evening we arrived. So the only... More

This hotel is located in the middle of the city, next to the fresh market and close to the bay walk.You have a good view over the bay from the restaurant and roof-garden. My room was very spacious, clean and well maintained. The only negative was that my room had no view. I will certainly go back, but then I... More

My partner and I stayed at the Sunlight Hotel for four nights in January 2014. After travelling for 30+ hours, we were so happy to see the shuttle driver holding the Sunlight Hotel placard at the Puerto Princesa airport. The prompt and friendly airport shuttle service was representative of the attention we received during our entire stay. We checked into... More

It was really unplanned because we're expecting to incur some expenses for Ira's 1st birthday party. But nonetheless, hubby made the effort to treat the whole family into a dinner buffet at Saluhan Restaurant in Skylight Guest Hotel. For Php399.00/pax you get to enjoy unlimited buffet meals prepared. But when you have kids with you, don't worry for they're only... More

We received some of the best and friendliest service in any hotel from this place, and considering its price range, it's really hard to beat. We were generally impressed by the people of Palawan, and looking back now, seems good service comes naturally. Also stayed in an El Nido Resort after here, and while service there equaled the staff here,... More

The other reviews do a good job of describing this place, I got exactly what I expected. - Location isn’t near restaurants or much of anything interesting, but having grocery store and small mall attached is convenient for drinks, cheep clothes or spa treatments. - Room and bathroom are very nice but had a view of a wall (you can...

I was my second time here at the hotel. I choosed it again because of the comfortable, quite rooms. After two years they renovated the rooms they looked different. The bed seems so much harder than at my last visit. The view from the balcony at the harbour and the Baywalk is still nice. In the evening there is just... More
