“A place to relax”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2011

we became friends, Andy and myself, and he's the most relaxed person I've met in Palawan.
he has a cool way of moving around as if he attained paradise and doesen't need to hurry anymore and look for it somewhere else.
I stayed at house of rose a month, and at night, we sat drinking some rhum-coke, cracking funny jokes as the night advanced, and at no time I've heard him say anything against gays or lesbians. indeed Raffi, his buttler, is gay, and Andy is the most conciliate person there is, always thanking him for his services.
he drove me to the airport and I was kind of sad to leave as I really felt he is a genuine friend, someone I could rely on in case of problems.
"just try to be good", he said, as we shook hands and said goodbye, and I thought that he was already doing good in life, and needed to take care a little more care of himself, as he was heading for Manila the very next day for a check-up.
Thanks for the ride, Andy.

Stayed for 5 nights. The place is clean, and the owner [Australian], friendly, and has advice on local attractions. The food is fresh and a good menu. Large TV in the bar area. Its a quiet place, with a pool, a good place to relax. Away from the city, but easily commutable.

The good things about this place? It's fairly chilled out, fairly quiet and fairly friendly. It's not the cleanest place I've stayed in however it doesn't cost much money to stay here. The food was pretty good and they have a bar and free internet that works. It's a bit off the beaten track, but that's why I went there.

However, the australian guy (married to a local woman) said to me one night "I [--] hate queers". The fool didn't realise he was speaking to a gay man.

If you are gay or lesbian, or have gay or lesbian friends, please avoid this place. That man does not deserve our hard earned cash.
