“Pleasant stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

Very nice setting, rooms clean with plasma tv. Good location, just 5-10 minutes from airport area.
Staff was friendly and quite helpful. I booked my room for 3 nights stay through Agoda, but also if you direct to hotel, the price is reasonable. Thanks guys and i hope to see you again!

We call the Casa Fuerte before departing from Manila, since we have not plan the trip, they are really accomodating. There is only one available room for 2 nights and they transfer us to their other inn w/c is Villa Fuerte to spent our last night with the same rate. The place provides tour to Underground river, island hopping, El Nido, city tour and etc.

We stayed initially at their sister hotel Villa Fuerte but before we get to settle in during our 1st day of stay, we were told that we had to transfer to Casa Fuerte since there no water service in Villa Fuerte. As we transferred, the room was very well kept & it smelled really nice! We were booked for 3d/2n stay. I must say that all the essentials are there. Fresh towels, basic toiletries, small closet, tv w/ cable. The aircon though was quite noisy but the whole setup was ok.
Breakfast was the usual continental-eggs-toast-bacon + brewed coffee. What was really convenient about our stay was that the travel agency was tied up with the hotel so the daily transition from the tours we had, & the transit back to the hotel was great. We'll definitely book this place again when we visit Puerto Princesa in the future.

We travelled as a party of 5. We availed of the tour and accommodation package from Casa Fuerte B&B. I was apprehensive of the hotel since I have looked it up before and saw a lot of negative reviews. I was pleasantly surprised by the contradictory experience we had. We came at an off-peak season, so I guess that would affect how customer relations were handled. We had very few fellow guests then. During peak seasons, I would expect the staff to be quite harried. We got our room cleaned every day too. No fuss.True, the location was away from the hustle and bustle, but we preferred it. Peace and quiet was ideal after a day of travel and tours.

Day 1 – We had a late afternoon flight so we got in the hotel around 7-8pm. The driver was very nice, had a bit of a laugh with him. The staff was very kind. There was a mistake in our reservation details. We asked for a room with two double beds and an extra bed because we were a party of 5 and we didn’t want to separate. It was immediately attended to; they fixed the room as we drank our welcome drinks. We had a free in-room Thai massage with our package and we availed of it that night.

Day 2 – We ordered Filipino breakfast meals. The beef meal was delicious. And we went on our Puerto Princesa Underground River tour. Our tour guide, Jay, was very funny and very informed about Puerto Princesa. It was quite an experience, especially for those who, like me, love history. The trip to Sabang Beach was pleasant. The sea was very calm. Our underground river tour was amazing! The guide we got was very funny too. We walked around the beach by the area fed by the river’s water for a while after. We ate lunch at a buffet by the Sabang port. It was alright. We got back to the hotel at around 3pm.

Day 3 – We availed of their free continental breakfast this time. It was alright. 4 toast points, a bit of jam and butter, fried egg, piece of ham and a slice of watermelon. Then, you get a choice between hot chocolate and coffee. It seemed measly but, for some reason, it got me full, and I am not a light eater. We went on our Honda Bay tour then. We had the same tour guide as before. Full of facts and history! I loved it. We rented some snorkelling gear and bread to feed fish on the tour. We got on a boat ride to Pandan Island. So beautiful! The water and weather was incredibly pleasant, considering that it was monsoon season then. We fed the fish a ton of bread, and when we ran out, we got the rice leftover from lunch. Lunch was made by our tour guide. They sold fresh catch there too. When you buy it, they would cook it for you. I was really sad to go, but we had to go on to Cowrie Island. There was not much fish to feed in Cowrie Island. The sand was not so fine that it hurt your feet sometimes and the water was so salty. There were a lot of starfish around though. The views were breathtaking. I would love to visit again! We got to the hotel in the late afternoon, almost evening. We ordered dinner at the restaurant.

Day 4 – Our last day. We had the free continental breakfast again and went on our city tour. We had more company during the tour, guests of the hotel and its sister hotel, the Villa Fuerte. We got to see the Villa Fuerte B&B, I found it pleasant and modern, and in contradiction to some reviews I have read. We went to souvenir shops, memorials and famous landmarks and parks. We had a sizzling dish of crocodile meat on the Crocodile Farm. Very unique and exotic. It is a must-try. We were dropped off at the airport an hour before our flight. All in all, our Puerto Princesa trip was AMAZING. I would love to go back again!

Room Tip: I've seen bad reviews of rooms near the kitchens. Our room was right next to it, but we didn'...

We stayed here for two nights and fell in love with the hotel. It is different, very quaint with everything trying to blend in with nature. Our bathroom for instance was a mixture of stones and tree parts (see the picture) - very different but hard to walk on. The staff are amazing and nothing was too much trouble. They always had a welcome smile that made your day. The breakfast was excellent and set us up for the day. We had to leave early one morning (6am) and breakfast didn't start until 6am. So the staff got up early and cooked us our breakfast at 5.30am - now that is what I call service!

The rooms have a lot of Mosquitoes so make sure to bring off lotion and baygon if your planning to stay in this place. Also, the serving of their breakfast was really small. They don't allow early check-in unless you're gonna pay extra.
