Cheap hotel. Rooms not properly illuminated. Aircon unable to cool the room since by the looks of it, its already very old and broken. Very unfriendly staff, they act like you're invisible. Basically the whole hotel is not anywhere near the stuff you see in their website. Also the food for breakfast was very unsatisfactorily made. Bottom line, we regretted... More

In our opinion this review is written with bad intention and did not come from one of our guests. The review contributor has no enough information in his profile and has no other reviews made. More

The staff were so accommodating. I just had complaint because I can see some mosquitoes in the room. I also love their breakfast :). They are going to ask you your prefer time to take your breakfast. They offer free roundtrip airport transfer even if you are solo traveler. This inn is accessible to Puerto Princesa City downtown.

Our 3 nights stay in Tropical Sun Inn had been pleasant. They offer free airport transfers which is only a 5 minute ride per way. Besides the airport, the hotel is also near some restaurants & sari-sari stores. We were greeted warmly by friendly receptionists who also served refreshing welcome drinks. Our hotel room was simple and decent. What I... More
