Reviewed October 21, 2012

Our stay in Deep Forest Garden Resort was a very pleasant experience. If you like seeing a lot of greens & structures, you are going to love this place.

Rooms are spacious enough and the A/C works pretty well. The bathroom is nice and the swimming pool is perfect. They have free WiFi though (I think) they need to upgrade their routers so that the wireless signal would reach all the rooms. Breakfast in the resort is amazing as well. They have a lot of choices and I recommend you to try their sausages.

It's a quiet place and very good for relaxing. It's about 10 minutes away from the airport which is always a good thing for me. The staff are pleasant and very accommodating too.

What I didn't like about the place are 2 things:
1. I think they charge too much for a van. We had to pay 500Php for every ride going to and from a local restaurant for dinner.
2. You have some flying insects because of the trees & plants surrounding the resort. It's tolerable but if you're having breakfast in the garden area, make sure to wear pants.

Overall, it was still a good experience!

Although this is not a beachfront accommodation, the place is very beautiful as well as the rooms. There are lots of flowers everywhere. The bathroom was also beautiful. The pool and jacuzzi are well maintained. Everything here is tidy and clean. The place was not crowded. The staff was courteous and accommodating. Their service is good and their rates are very reasonable and affordable. You would feel very close to nature because of the plants that surrounded the place and the unusual birds and some squirrels that we saw there. It's so peaceful and serene. This is a place that I would definitely love to go back over and over. Kudos to the owner and may they continue keep the place beautiful and their services good always ;)

I loved my stay in this cozy inn. The room was large and has interesting fixtures. The bathroom is huge and has pebbled flooring which is safe for kids. The airconditioning worked well and the TV has a lot of channels to choose from to keep the kids interested. I specially loved that they have a pool (which was the main reason i choose this inn) although they could have paid attention to the pebbles used which were sharp and could hurt little kids, my 4 yr old daughter actually scratched her knees on the pebbles. The room had a few mosquitoes, good thing i brought with me off lotion. The food in the restaurant was a bit pricey, we should have eaten in ka lui instead if we just had a reservation that night. The hotel staff were all very polite and attentive, kudos to them! They all have ready smiles and focuses on the needs of their guests. All in all, even if i have a few concerns i could still confidently say that when i return to puerto princesa i will definitely stay in this hotel again.

After reviewing several places for our stay in Palawan I chose the Deep Forest Garden Inn. I did not want a place located in the heart of the hustle bustle that you normally find in Philippine towns and cities with their tri-cycles and Jeepneys.
This place was located close to the airport and about a 15-30 minute ride to town. You can jump in a tri-cycle and be in town for only 60 pesos! It was quiet and secluded which I found very enjoyable. The room was large, well maintained and more than adequate. The grounds were maintained beautifully with many tropical plants and flowers. They do use a lot of funky wood carved pieces and animals which some may find a little strange but I thought they were quite interesting and whimsical. The pool with float up bar was very nice as well. We ate at the hotel restaurant on many occasions and it was very enjoyable and relaxing. Since I do not eat seafood I thought the selection was a little limited but what I had was good and the servings very large, almost too much at times. The staff and front counter were all very warm and wonderful which is customary in the Philippines. You can also schedule all of your sight seeing trips with an agent from right here at the hotel which was very convenient. We really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to others without hesitation!

The hotel is around 15 minutes from the ariport and they provide a free shuttle for pick up and drop off. Colourful wood carvings are almost in every nook of the place. Very colourful and eye-catching. The rooms are spacious and very clean plus wifi also comes for free. Staff are also willing to assist and are very friendly. The place is not so big with only around 25 rooms and a big pool. Very quite and relaxing hotel to stay.

Price is cheaper, and service is great! Room rates are affordable, rooms were clean and you'd feel like you're at home. Their cellar bar is a must place to go! It was cozy, and the best place to unwind after the energy exhausting tours in Puerto Princesa. They got swimming pool, and so many things to see and appreciate in that place! Though its location is not near the business establishments in the city, a place to really relax.

Room Tip: rooms on the groundfloor can connect to the internet.
