“Fab Final Frontiers ng Filipinas (of the Philippines)”
Reviewed November 20, 2006

Mabuheey!

I was very surprised coming from someone whose only mantra was "the only place I would ever step foot on in Palawan are those starting with the letters A (Amanpulo) and E (EL Nido-Miniloc) which i have twice and three times respectively thank you! "

Pretty jaded to an extent... but i was wrong... dead wrong...

A small fishing town which is quite impressively spotless thanks to Mayor Hagedorn (a greening advocate and example for all) which is easy to move around with "oversized tricycles"

The friendly and centrally located Legend Hotel was over home for over 5 days for conference and some side trips. Rooms were generally clean and adequately equiped (though their rattan chairs are pretty oversized for the room and could easily be tripped on). Friendly staff everywhere who didnt differentiate the caucasian, korean and Filipino guests. Tours were quite professional (Thanks to Pam, Ariel and Roman) and enjoyable. Food and Beverage was tasty and adequate. Overall a good stay and would recommend the place should you be on corporate account.

Dont miss the Palawan Underground River (2.5 hours on rough roads and 30 mins by boat from Sabang) and Honda bay (great snorkelling and fish feeding... and much cheaper than going to El Nido and Northern Palawans posh resorts)

Be prepared for bare-foot seafood feasting at Kalui's while getting your fear factor game with the oyster tasting woodworms at nearby kinabuchi.

Puerto Princesa is just waiting in the wings to be the next it destination when youre tired of the littered and hoi-polloi of Bora but dont want to spend too much for the tony resorts up north.

p.s. they have good souvenir t-shirts of all sizes at NCCC costing around 80-115 pesos (approx 5 USD) cheaper than buying at the underground river, sabang or any other place

Very very nice. Courteous staff from the front door to guest services and the restaurant staff. Very spacious layout with an atrium lobby. I would recommend this to any traveler who wants good service and a good intro to Puerto Princesa.

Stayed November 2005

The hotel has nice clean rooms, great staff, and buffet breakfast , lunch and dinner. Buffet price is about $6.00 U.S. The buffet is not elegant but adequate, mostly sea food. It is not close to the beaches, but has a large pool. The hotel also has airport pickup and return, which is a good feature as there are no taxi's in Puerto Princessa, only tricycles and jeepneys for transportation. Hotel also offers a large variety of tours including to the Underground River. It is close to downtown if you need to go shopping, tricycle ride about 10 cents per person to the only shopping mall.
