A relaxing and enjoyable vacation is what I want to escape from a stressful city. And Purple Fountain made it happen. A place that exceeded my expectations. A perfect place to stay in Puerto Prinsesa. Accessible to all places a tourist is looking for. I really had a blast in this place. From their parking area to even corners of the place is so enchanting. Their interior designs are really cool. From their wall paints and furnishings that are so pleasing to the eyes. With their food, its a two thumbs up rating. Delightfully good food that we chose to dine in and not to visit the some resto in the place.

This place has a QUALITY CUSTOMER SERVICE. All the staffs are so accommodating and made you feel like you're on your own house.

If you're looking for a nice place to stay in PPS. Better book for this place. All worth it! Two thumbs up Purple Fountain! We will be back here for sure.

If you want to do away with the hassle of preparing an itinerary and looking for the perfect place to stay in Puerto Princesa, choose this inn. I just paid for the rate per person and they took care of everything! Airport pick-up and transfers, city tour, Underground River tour with buffet lunch, breakfasts and the food you can order from their cafe is not bad. I never got the chance to go to Badjao Seafood Restaurant of Calui's because Purple Fountain's food was good enough for us. Ample servings and reasonably priced.

The staff service is impeccable. They take the trouble of getting your breakfast orders the night before, and serve it outside your room so you can enjoy fresh air while eating. The rooms are tastefully decorated and smell new, no musty old hotel smell. Wifi speed is conveniently fast in the room given to us. On our last day, we were given mini-rainmakers as souvenirs, nice gesture we experienced for the first time:)

If there would be any improvements I could suggest, it would be to add more menu choices for lunch and dinner, which may be upcoming since their cafe is opening soon. I would definitely stay here again next time we go back.

Room Tip: There are towels and soap in the rooms but no shampoo and toothpaste so be sure to bring your own.

It was a first time for Me and my BFF to have an out of town trip. And our destination was Puerto Princesa, Palawan. And we have stayed here for 4days and 3nights at Room 2. As a first time traveller with a friend, we wer expecting to have a worthy place to stay with the money that we pay. And Purple Fountain Courtyard Inn didnt fail us. It was a very peaceful place, very clean, well decorated, good food and affordable plus of course very good and nice staff. It it so near from the airport and very accessible to anywhere in the city. Its just a tricycle away from every establishments like restaurants, banks, food chains, bars and some other must see places within the city.

I am actually planning to stay here again with my Family since it is good also for the kids coz they also have an area for playing. And their rooms are kids friendly too.

All in all, it was an excellent escape coz we have the great place that we stayed for our trip.

Well located and is close to the airport. The family room is very spacious with comfortable beds. It's very clean and tastefully decorated. The breakfast was very good. The grounds are well maintained with many plants and trees. It even has a little play area for kids. Very good value. Had a wonderful stay.

I really love this inn. It was so cute. We stayed here for one night before and after our visit to el nido. The rooms were very clean especially the toilet. The staff were very helpful and friendly. They picked us up and send us to the airport. They served our breakfast on our last day there in the patio. It was really romantic.
