We choose this hotel with some reviews we read on tripadvisor, and it was helpful.
When we arrived at the airport a van was there to pick us up, arrived there the lobby gave us an impression of space. Your name is written on the welcome guest board, and this is a nice attention. As our rooms were ready early, we passed by the beautiful pool area to discover them.
Our room was clean and functional. Don't forget to ask for a double bed, otherwise the joined twin bed are not so comfortable. The bathroom was big enough, and there was an amazing pressure of water... while in some hotels you need hours to shower because of the lack of pressure. A long desk was there to put your stuff. Free Wifi is available everywhere and the speed was also good and surprising! Little inconvenience, there are no windows, and no view!
The breakfast was good, even though I can't eat these meatloaf, fried fish and other pork & beans, but I was able to enjoy pandesals, pancakes, fruits and other omelets. Unfortunately no expresso machine to get a good & strong coffee.
In the evening we enjoyed to eat "a la carte" (instead of the buffet) in front of the pool with a nice bottle (be aware that the corckage fee is 50% of the value of the product you bring in). The attention given in this area was lower than expected, and we had to go several times in the restaurant to order or ask for something. On the last evening we had an trainee waiter, and he kept on making rounds as he was lacking experience, but he kept on smiling, and was quite friendly. Totally in opposite with one of the front office girl who has never been able to confirm our flight with Cebu Pacific.
Overall we had a good stay, the rooms were functional, the restaurant (Filipino food only) was good and some dishes really delicious and the serving great. The location was also good, it's not the center of Puerto Princesa but you are at a quick tricy ride from it!
