We went to Puerto Princesa Palawan December 24 2012 for 5 days 2 nights and stayed here. The staff was accommodating and I love the breakfast that they serve every morning! The rooms are spacious and very well maintained. Definitely a total relaxing experience! :)

We stayed just for 1 Night but have been positive surprised. Modern Hotel middle in the City with a stunning view from top of the Hotel. A nice Little Pool also on top. Rooms are Big and Nicely simply Designed. A welcome Board at reception with the Name of arrivals as a nice Tool...all in all good value for Money.

This was the second hotel i stayed in Puerto Princesa. This hotel was nice inside even though the outside neighbourhood looked iffy to me when we pulled up. In the end the area was safe enough as i walked from downtown to the hotel on several nights and never had any issues. It is in a good location 8 peso... More

The Grande Vista is a newer hotel, and the rooms show it as they are quite clean, and the top floor deck does have a great view. However, clean rooms are just part of the hotel experience. The 4th floor breakfast staff were OK, but the service on the evening shift was terrible. We had internet the first day, but... More

Very good customer service.They had interns at that time of our stay (12/7-12/10/13) but they work like professionals. The staffs are very respectful and attended to our needs quickly. Cant think of any negative to complain. Me and my family of 6 had a good experience in this hotel and will definitely come back and recommend to out balikbayan friends.

I'm not sure what some of the complaints here are about. I'm a stickler for quality service and this hotel does a very good job. The good: 1. Free airport pickup AND drop-off with no waiting 2. Fast check-in process 3. Nice top floor deck with a beautiful daytime view 4. Free breakfast that's well above average for a hotel... More

We decided to stay there b/c of the location - the hotel is away from Rizal – the nosiest street in PPS. Room was big but the beds were covered with plastic (stitched with scotch) which made is a bit disgusting to sleep on them. A/C was noisy and it was leaking which was a dangerous considering that there was... More

It's an economy hotel as rated by the Dept of Tourism but the staff is equivalent to a 5-star hotel!!! Very accommodating, approachable, kind and proactive! The hotel itself has very good amenities with reasonable price, clean rooms, and a convenient store having reasonable prices of its goods! A must stay hotel when vacationing in Palawan!

Looks like a 5 star hotel, and the staff service is really great (bookings, information, advices, ...) More expensive than many hotel, but really affordable (around 1800 PHP / night + 10% tax). And there is a pool, very small but at least one :-), and on the roof and you can see the view around, this is great !... More

The hotel is located on a busy Malvar street of Puerto Princesa and is believed to be at the center of the city's buzzling activities. When we first walked in, we were awed by the intricacies of native ornamentation. The basic amenities of a standard hotel are available here at a very competitive price...flat screen (21-inch), a ref, and an... More
