            Value for money, indeed! Great, comfortable, relaxing place! Very good breakfast! Comfortable, cozy and clean room! Limited rooms mean limited people thus making the guests enjoy quiet and peace. The free use of jacuzzi and sauna makes the stay even more worthwhile! Lastly, kudos to all the staff! You are all wonderful people! Looking forward to staying with Balai Princesa again!
