“Almost nice..”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

What I enjoy about this hotel is their swimming pool and their restaurant but the only problem is there are so many mosquitoes that could bother your good night sleep and their air conditioning unit is not working in the middle of the night (in my case, I don't know the other rooms).

If they can improve these maybe I would come back...

The hotel is clean with friendly staff, rooms were modern but relatively basic. It had a courtyard pool which would not be so great to use as it in the middle of everything/all rooms looking down on the pool...breakfast was average/uninteresing. Drinkable coffee, i.e capuccino, was available for extra cost. There was no gym.
Am not sure there were any other better hotes on offer in PP as it is a tragic case of a small town suddenly grown up with too many tourists, thus lots of efforts to quickly capitalize with little thought of charm, space, character ...mainly off busy road.

Room Tip: They all seemed the same

When you drive up to the hotel, especially in the evening, it looks quite magnificent. So are the staff, who are extremley friendly and helpful. The pool is great too. The room, however, left much to be desired. There were no towels in the bathroom which, I hasten to add, were brought promptly when we asked for them. We'd booked this hotel because it offered WIFI in the room, which we needed for work. The WIFI, however, wasn't working and whilst we were told they were working on this, it never worked in all the ten days that we stayed at the hotel. The only window (at the back of the room) offered a view on a wall, which was less than a metre away. If truth be told, the room was so dark that all the time we spent there felt a bit as if we'd been locked up in a prison (we were in a room on the first floor in the left wing - I recommend that you get a room on the other side of the hotel because guests that were staying on that side told us that they had a view and that their room was quite light). In other words, we were disappointend with the Asturias, and will not return. One tip, there's a good tricycle rider that's always waiting outside the Asturias, who does all the "usual" Puerto Princesa tours (Iwahig, city tour, fire fly watching, Honda Bay etc.). He's very reliable and offers tours at very reasonable prices. So if you want to venture out (the hotel is quie a distance from the city proper), his name is Toto, cell phone 09094041491.

On arrival we were shown to our room which had a small double bed, a window high up in the wall which made the room very dark and a dirty bathroom and we needed a twin room with good light and a clean bathroom. They then put a camping bed into the room and were quite surprised when we said that it wouldn't do. However after a lot of negotiations we eventually got a rtoom on the first floor which had a good window and 2 twin beds. The restaurant was fine, not a lot of choice but more than adequate and the small cafe at the front was good. Don't have an ice cream though unless you are prepared to pay a huge amount for it. The hotel is quite attractive with a nice albeit small garden in the middle. The pool looked inviting but we didn't have time to try it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the first floor, the windows are much bigger

You are greeted with warm smiles at the front desk (well it seems that they feel a bit sorry for the van that picked us up was late). Food is good and served hot though a few servings are made. Rested well in their comfy rooms but in-room wifi needs to be requested and paid. In the conference hall the free wifi was consistently not connecting so don't bother. A bit off site from the center or night life (if there is any you will find hahaha) but everything is accessible by tricycle.

the rooms in this hotel is far from what we expected. we got 8 rooms for our family. it only have a small window overlooking a wall, its like living in a cave. the aircons are not working properly, the tv is so old and small, the bathroom needs renovation,the bed is not comfortable to sleep in , the linens are very worn-out and we were given only one pillow per person. it is also poorly lighted, breakfast is average and needs variety. my sister was charged P500 for staining the comforter wtuh baby poop but it was not replaced. the rooms would have been ok if they have a window in front or better if they have a glass sliding window so the guest can see the pool view. the only consolation was the pool which the kids enjoyed the most.
