Reviewed March 24, 2011

I would like to thank Rushelle and staff for a great accomidating stay before and after my liveaboard dive trip. All my emails were politely answered in response and an AC van pickup was made available at the pier after my divetrip.Nikos is about 15 minutes outside Puerto Princess on the National highway and about 500m off that which makes for a quiet place to relax,enjoy a welcome drink and lounge by the waterfall pool.Tour excursions to the Underwater caverns, Honda Bay Island hopping which is close by and fun or massage therapy were handled courteously. The Cantina provided great food,drink and conversations. Rooms were niceley appointed and the all important AC and hot water shower was nice.Grounds are neat and well cared for with security present after dark for increased comfort level..Any transportation needs were met on time as requested.It was nice that immediate response from Rushelle made my decision to stay there easy when other places did not respond. It was nice to be known right away by name when I arrived. When the new Robinson Mall is completed more fine dining and shopping is a couple of kilometers away.Definately would stay again.Thanks for having me at Nikos

Stayed at Niko's for two nights in Feb2011. Excellent service from the airport pick-up to the time I was dropped off. Rooms are spacious, comfortable, and clean. Staff is friendly and more than willing to assist in organising excursions or recommending other restaurants in the area. There are only 10 cabanas making it a cosy experience for families and single travellers alike.

We agree with all the positive reviews about clean,spacey rooms, friendly staff and reasonably good food. However we did not sleep the entire night. First of the cabanas are located in a rural area full of farmers. Until about 1 am there was techno music all over the place (not sure if this has to do with their national holiday on 25 Feb?), then the entire night chicken and cocks screaming, dogs barking and locals yelling. Add to it all the loud insects and super loud A/C and there you go up all night. I had EARPLUGS but could hear each single sound as there are holes in the walls and around doors.
Will not stay again.

Hi,
I stayed at this place for 2 nights in Jan 2011. I have to say that I was impressed by this resort, as the quality/price ratio is very high.
Even though I was traveling alone, I was given a big room with 2 queen size beds and a spacious bathroom. Everything was very clean. Perfect aircon (powerful), a minibar, boiling kettle, 2 wardrobes + many cupboards etc. Free WiFi with excellent coverage. The pool was a nice touch, most of the time empty (i.e. of people, not water :-).
The food served at the hotel restaurant was quite good.
The personel was very helpful and friendly.
The resort is very quite at night, as it's quite isolated from the main road (200 yards), which brings us to the only drawback: yes. it's quite far from Puerto Princesa proper.
A tricycle ride to Rizal Avenue takes approx. 20 - 30 minutes, depending on the traffic.

Apart from that, a very nice hotel, that I would gladly recommend to anyone.

Nikos is situated a bit outside of Puerto Princessa, but a perfect place to stay as it is quite, very clean, super well managed and easy to get to by tricycle. Rushelle, the manager, is very helpful and organizes everything for you. A bit disapointing was the Island Hopping in Honda Bay. We recommend to rent bikes and leave the city of Puerto for a day or two.

Niko's was fantastic. We booked a package for a 2 night/2 day stay. They picked us up at the airport and delivered us to the hotel. Very impressed with the whole experience. Great service, cheap prices for bar & minibar. Staff was excellent and friendly. Free WiFi was great. Room was very comfortable and more than we expected. Food was decent but not fantastic (I found food in general in the Philippines to be disappointing). It is the only place I stayed in Puerto Princesa but its hard to see what could be made better. Location was good and had access to shops etc nearby. Tours were good and same as every other tour being sold in town....seemed highly regulated and controlled. Would easily recommend Niko's to anyone going to Puerto Princesa.

Took package tour for 5 days 4 nights for honeymoon. Treated us like royalty! Room was very clean as was the pool and grounds. Staff very attentive, food excellent! Actually better food there than in town! Only 2 years old resort, would definately go back just to see the staff as they became our friends.
