The only saving grace of this hotel are the people. They are warm and very eager to please. Sadly, their rooms are dilapidated. The housekeeping staff tries so hard to keep it clean and it is clean but the bedsheets are tattered and not of pristine white color anymore and the rooms have a musty smell. The mattress is hard...

This is a very late review as I'm new at TA. I felt the need to post this review to let future guests know of how this hotel let us down. We stayed at this hotel on a tour package, which we booked at the hotel website. We were asked to send full payment upon booking for the Underground River... More

If you can book this at a local rate, it's a decent option... otherwise I probably wouldn't bother. The room was very basic and dated, though mostly clean. A/C worked well, bed was a bit hard, and water pressure was lacking. Breakfast was average, though coffee was great. Staff is warm and friendly. Wi-Fi was extremely frustrating. If you are... More

What can I say about this Hotel..? I can see this Hotel once a proud hotel. I don't have any other hotels to compare it with since it was my first time to visit Palawan but I'm always fair when I give my review. I always give a hotel it's due praise and my honest constructive criticism to improve service.... More

Well located about 15 minutes from the airport. They provide transfers from and to the airport. Rooms are basic but clean although if you need a quality mattress then perhaps you should search further. Hotel is geared to hold multiple meetings. Wifi is not particularly fast and struggles if the hotel is full. Staff are very nice and helpful though.... More

Had a welcome drink. Very clean rooms. Free coffee. Good tv channels. Cold water in pool but clean. Our names displayed on TV... More

The hotel is good, just need more lighting and bit renovations especially the bathroom and hall way.. The pool is small and needs improvements in style. Breakfast is delicious serving their local delicacies. Over-all hotel is worth checking-in, pleasant place to stay... we cherished the experienced.

Accommodating and friendly staff! Tanglaw serves simple but great tasting breakfast. Rooms are clean and beds are a little on the hard side, which is good for the back. Pool area needs a little improvement on the aesthetics side. Overall, this hotel is definitely worth checking-in for a comfortable hotel experience in Puerto Princesa.

The hotel is not extraordinary and facilities need a bit of updating. The lighting seems dim and the bathroom needs renovation and better ventilation. The room aircon was also noisy and outdated. We could hear the water dripping from the aircon exhaust valve. It's the staff that makes the hotel a pleasant place to stay. Teresa L at the front... More
