If you are looking for a western-style property resort, this is not for you. I chose this because I was traveling with Filipinos and it looked like a place they would enjoy. I was at first skeptical because it was quite a way from Puerto Princesa and it's on an unpaved road. But once I settled in it was peaceful,... More

It was not new to us as we have traveled almost everywhere. It was my sister who booked the hotel and arranged everything. My sister has been considering... More

Very good budget place with nice pool and huge garden, where children can safely play. Rooms are very average, could be better. The restaurant is ok, included breakfast is good. Staff is very friendly and helpful!

Niko's is a delightful oasis in the noisy city. It is not a good choice for a long stay as it is too far from restaurants and shops. The rooms are small and a little drab (1970s brown predominates) however the pool and gardens are very restful. Breakfasts are good, with pleny of fresh fruit but the evening meal was... More

Just wanna tell the world how beautiful is Niko's Cabanas. Their place is so quiet plus a very friendly and a very accommodating staff. My vacation indeed in Palawan was so great simply because we chose the right place to stay with a right service and with the right people. Thank you so much.

We arrived at the Hotel late evening aftre recieving our email Confirmation from a well-known on-line Agency, (not Tripadvisor). When we arrived the hotel was unaware of us and had no rooms available. HOWEVER, the Receptionist not only gave us a welcoming drink and found us another hotel with availability in Puerto Princesa but she arranged for the Nikos mini-bus... More

First of all, I want to say that Niko's Cabanas is great provincial hotel. The grounds are well kept up. The staff is friendly. We enjoyed the pool and the rooms are spacious and very clean. The bathrooms are modern, and the showers have hot water heaters. It is a wonderful oasis to unwind and relax. It is, however, a... More

The best part of our stay was Buds! He was an amazing host, very friendly, and spoke good English. He followed up with our itinerary, scheduled our tours and vans, and was very accommodating and kind. He was the best part! The room was clean and nice; however, like others have mentioned: over the weekend the pool is taken over... More
