We stayed here for two nights after staying at Daluyon. The difference is "night and day". This resort is busier. The pool was great, but the beach wasn't "swimmer friendly" during low tides as you have to walk a ways out.. Especially after seeing bug repellant in the guestrooms with a warning about insects on their beaches.

The view of the beach is great but I didn't want to try it out and took my chances with the pool.

The shuttle service a great service to have.

Room Tip: ask for a room behind the hotel that faces out to the beach. You can open your balcony door and have...

Thank you for your candid review. It was unfortunate that you didn't get to see the beach during high tide -- aside from swimming, you can even do kayaking! And even during low tides, there are still plenty of things to see and do at the beach.
The insect repellent we provide free for our guests also serves as a reminder to take the necessary precautions whenever you plan to explore the great outdoors. Other things to remember -- bring sunblock, shades, googles, snorkels, hats or caps, a camera would be nice, but most especially, swimsuits! It's more fun in the sun at Microtel Puerto Princesa!

I highly recommend microtel, because it provides all your needs and give you a very relaxing and memorable stay. the staffs were very good - they were all polite, knowledgeable, and courteous. Also the rooms were very cheap indeed some of the guest stay for a long time. even though the hotel is located far from the city, still they provide free shuttle. :)

Thank you for you positive review, Ms. Tirisa! We are happy to know that all our staff, especially Mitch, were able to meet your needs. While opening branches in other Southeast Asian countries is still a long way off, we are pleased to let you know that you can enjoy the same great Microtel experience in all our other properties all over the Philippines -- from Baguio, Cabanatuan, and Tarlac up north, to Cavite, Batangas and Pasay (Mall of Asia) further south, to the white-sand beaches of Boracay and all the way down south in Davao. And opening soon are other Microtels in General Santos and in Libis, Quezon City!

staying at Microtel was a good decision for our big family. in between tours to the underground river, the city, and honda bay, when some wanted to stay in to rest, the kids had the pool to enjoy and the teens had the beach to stroll along (not really dip in as it's very shallow). breakfast was very relaxing. beautiful view of the sea with hammocks by the bay.

Thank you for your great review. We are glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay. We hope to welcome you again here in Microtel when you decide to visit Puerto Princesa once more. There are still plenty of things to do and see here -- you can paddle your way through a winding river between centuries-old mangrove trees, watch dolphins and whalesharks in the crystal clear waters off Puerto Princesa Bay, fly through the jungle on one of the longest ziplines in Asia in Irawan Eco-Park, or see hundreds of fireflies as you meander through Iwahig or Sicsican rivers. There's something for everyone here in Puerto Princesa City!

Stayed at this hotel for one night while on my way to Sabang Beach. The hotel is very average and maybe a 2 or 3 star. It is a long way out of town but the hotel does offer a scheduled shuttle service into town but the last trip back is at 10:30 PM. They do have a small pool. It is on the beach but not the greatest beach as it is in the mangroves.

Room Tip: Second floor on the beach side

Thank you for your review. Microtel's "no-frills" concept means you get less of the 5-star amenities but more of the 5-star service, at a budget-friendly price.
We're glad you availed of our free scheduled shuttle service to and from the City. This is just another way we offer more value for our guests who, despite the 20-minute drive to the airport or town proper, appreciate being in the middle of nature in the only Class A resort in Puerto Princesa City.
Again, we'd like to thank you for your candid comments and we do hope we get the opportunity to serve you again here in Microtel Puerto Princesa.

My boyfriend (from the US) and I were very thankful that we booked Microtel. We initially wanted to stay in Sabang, but were glad we didn't when we finally went there for the Underground River tour and realized it was a busy area for our taste.

Microtel is a small, simple/no-frills hotel that goes out of its way to provide excellent customer service. The free drinking water and wi-fi are definitely a big plus for us. Sure, the location is a bit far, but if you are the type who likes peace and quiet and some exclusivity, then this is the place for you. they also have scheduled free service to the city proper so it wasn't really a big issue for us. it has a beautiful view of the sea and the mangrove area, with these cute twin mangrove trees in the center. the pool might be small, but enough for just lounging around and the temperature is perfect. We also had our tours arranged by the hotel, and everything went well, without a hitch.

My boyfriend couldn't help but rave about this gem and his overall experience in Palawan. This is his first trip outside Manila and I am glad we made the right choice with Microtel. Next year, we will be visiting Coron. How I wish there was a Microtel there, too!

Good view from the veranda. Although the beach is not that nice since during the morning, you have to walk far to get to the waters. But at night, and during high tide, the water will be near the breakwater.

Food is ok, usual Filipino breakfast and dinner.
