Didn't stay at the hotel but went diving with them. First of all it's very expensive, go to Port Barton where you will have a better experience for less. The dive master didn't offer much guidance, just took us to the dive site and pretty much left us to it. The boat is very small and doesn't cope well with... More

We made a last minute booking as we needed a place just to stay/sleep for a morning flight. We phoned to make a room reservation with no problems, as simply just asked for the cheapest room at Php1,250. It's fairly easy to locate even arriving past midnight, and the security guard gave us our room keys. Pros: - a few... More

Nice hotel with a cozy feel. This was my second time staying at this hotel. It's right next to the airport and within walking distance to down town. There's some great restaurants close by - try La terasse across the street! The hotel staff was very nice and helped us arrange a nice island hopping tour. Good value for money!

Just few minutes walk to the airport, mild noisy at day time, not as worse as disco music started around 10pm everynight until 1 or 2am, I wasn't sure during I was fighting to fall asleep. noisy air-con indeed, but you have right to turn that off.

The one thing Moana has going for it is the close proximity to the airport in Puerto Princessa. It is only about 200m away. The basic rooms are slightly overpriced but they were clean and came with a hot shower and a TV. There is even a nice pool surrounding the rooms. Overall, a good choice for one night.

I stayed at the Moana for one night before taking off from Palawan. I took the small aircon room. It's not worth paying for the aircon, it's so noisy that you won't be able to use it at night. And even if you don't use the aircon, don't forget the earplugs: the place is very noisy. There is a videoK... More

I found this hotel while marooned in Puerto Princesa in April 2011 when the boat is was working on partially sank. I moved in after the owner, Paulo, told me he could get me a better deal than what I was paying at another hotel, and I ended staying for 6 weeks. I could have stayed forever! OK, if you... More

This hotel is very convenient to those who like to travel Palawan. Normally, what travelers don't want to do is to rush back to the airport. Moana is just 5 minutes walk to the airport without the noise of the airplanes. They have a swimming pool inside the hotel, cabana, diving shops and souvenir shops. They can also arrange your...
