“Paul and Malve”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012

We only stayed for 3 nights but would highly recommend this quiet, 'green' and very affordable accommodation. The owners were extremely sociable and very helpful. The staff were equally nice and friendly. When we return to Palawan we certainly hope to start off by staying here again! Keep up the good work!

Stayed June 2012, traveled as a couple

A pleasant place to spend your time. Rooms were light, spacious and clean. A little out of the city (which is a good thing if you are after some peace and quiet) but the staff were happy to ferry guests into town or to the airport.

away from the city. (although its 10 mins away only) :D
breakfast under a tree.
away from noise.
birds chirping in the morning.
a hammock.
fresh air.
trees and plants everywhere.
ripe mangoes.
etc. --- this is how we define "vacation".
and this is what subli guest cabins is about.

apart from the tourist spots we've visited, the place gave more meaning to our "vacation" as its relaxing, refreshing and peaceful ambiance was exactly what we were looking for.

The staff and the owner, Ms. Nancy, were so accommodating and friendly. They welcomed us with orange juice and a simple gift.

Don't expect world-class and state-of-the-art facilities. (they have good wifi connection though)
BUT expect a place that would take you back in time when everything was just plain and simple.

The place hasn't been fully developed yet as they just opened a few months back. But i still loved every part of the place. Very unique and different from hotels and pension houses. (which are very common in PPC)

Minor downside-- 1) not that accessible. so if you want to go out at night, make sure you ask the friendly staff to get you a ride/tricycle. On the other hand it was good coz it's not noisy and it's pollution-free.
2)FOOD - not bad but needs improvement ^^
3)No complimentary shampoo,soap, (even ice was not for free) So better pack some toiletries!
3) The only thing that disappointed us the most was the Travel Agency (Frelens Travel Agency) they are affiliated with. They were always late. And the package agreed on wasn't really adhered to. The tourist guides were kinda amateur, they were funny though.

Overall, I would say I would recommend this place to people who wants a laid-back and rural-like place to stay.

I definitely would go back! :)
