great value for money, exceeds expectation”

cleanliness, good service, location

deep forest garden inn caught our attention in the list of hotels in puerto princesa because of the good reviews from its previous guests. also, we've compared the price with other hotels of the same category, and we found out that they are almost of the same range. however, what they have that many don't have is swimming pool (and it's well-maintained!). that's a major consideration for us because we have an active daughter who loves to swim. eventhough we may go island hopping and swim in the beaches, yet we know our daughter would still love to swim in the hotel swimming pool. and we all did enjoy the pool. deep forest didn't disappoint us. they even exceeded our expectation. minor details such as welcome drink cheerfully delivered in our room put smile on our faces. apart from that, because we booked with agoda, we enjoyed a free drink per guest at their wine cellar. food is also good in their restaurant. we didn't go out for dinner anymore because we travelled with 3 senior citizens. the moment we're back from our tours (city tour, underground river, and honda bay), the oldies are already tired. so we didn't get to eat out. no regrets though because we enjoyed the food there, and it is reasonably priced. the rooms are clean and they change beddings and towels everyday. some may find the facade as not so attractive, but we don't have a problem with that because indeed it is true to its name, deep forest, because after a narrow entrance, a neatly cultivated/landscaped "forest" awaits you.

Beautiful resort, brand new, great staff”

Luxury private houses, swimming pool, great staff

This hotel resort was only opened in August 2010. I visited Palawan to see some friends and I bumped into this hotel on Agoda.com and decided to book it. The staff is great and does everything to make a nice stay possible. It was low season so only 5 or 6 of the total of around 25 queen rooms (a kind of private little house) were rented out. As rain came down for the first three or four days, I was able to test the swimming pool only at the last day. Restaurant is good. The only disadvantage is that Deep Forest Garden Inn is situated in the middle of nowhere. For a night out, shopping in the city of Puerto Princesa, you have to call the trike taxi and it takes some 15 minutes before you are there. I hope Deep Forest Garden Inn keeps its pureness for many years yet to come. It's such a quiet and relaxing place. I don't like mass tourism. If you are looking for some peace of mind, Deep Forest Garden Inn is the place to be.

Affordable Accommodation, Great and Helpful Staff, Great Experience”

I really do love to travel, that almost every year, I make sure that I have an out of town trip. Last October 2016, I had the chance to visit Puerto Princesa, Palawan. It wasn't my first time in the city, but my first time in Deep Forest Garden Inn. It was my partner's birthday that month, and I usually come up with a surprise. I already had a plan in mind, and I wouldn't be able to pull it up without the help of the great and helpful staff of Deep Forest. Even a few months earlier, I keep on texting and asking them if they can help me put up a certain set up in our room and even buy a cake for us. I had a constant communication with the staff via sms. When the day came, I was happy to see that our room is very spacious, even the bathroom is. The set up was made during our second night, and it was good. They did a good set up and I would love to comment the very moist chocolate they had for us! And also the cake was so cheap. All in all, our stay in Deep Forest was great. Especially that I had gotten a very reasonable price to stay there because I booked it through Agoda. Just to say this, even if I do not have a scheduled trip, I always visit Agoda to check out cheap accommodations and when I see that when there is a cheap one in a good place, that would be the time I will plan on my trip. Thanks to Agoda! I hope to book with you again. :)

Best experience I've ever had”

Customer Service/Staff, Cleanliness, Decor, Food

i am so very pleased with our stay at the deep forest garden inn! a special thanks to the wonderful staff! they were so friendly and accommodating! we booked our tours with an outside agency. and when we had problems with the bookings, the deep forest staff went beyond the call of duty to help us! next time, we will book our tours through the hotel's travel agency. the rooms were clean and comfortable. the decor was beautiful, especially the plants and numerous wood carvings. the food was great and the selection was very good. even the music was great! they played many of my favorite tunes on the restaurant stereo system, including songs by bob marley and steely dan. they even played "corazon espinado" by maná! american radio stations don't even play that one! because of so much sight-seeing, we didn't even get to use the pool. but it was beautiful and very inviting. it's a must for next time! when booking, i saw a negative review concerning the location of this hotel. it's puzzling, because the hotel is only a short tricycle ride from town, and there was always a tricycle waiting at the intersection just down the street. all it took was a simple wave of the hand to summon them. also, the staff would cheerfully summon transportation for you, and it would arrive within a few short minutes. the location was perfect. it was just far enough out of town to escape the noise of business and traffic. the only negative i can think of was the shower head. it was a hand-held shower head and it wouldn't stay in the holder very well. of course, this is very minor. i didn't even think to mention it to the staff while i was there. if i had mentioned it, i guarantee you they would have jumped to make it right. this was undoubtedly the best experience i've ever had with a hotel, regardless of price range. and it was primarily because of the wonderful people staffed at the deep forest. god bless each of you!

Nice and relaxing hotel ”

friendly and helpful staff, nice pool

we stayed at deep forest garden inn for four days and three night to go for our underground river tour and the honda bay island hopping tour. we arrived in the later afternoon and left in the early morning to el nido. it takes around 10min by tricycle from the hotel to the city center of puerto princesa. our room was very clean with good working air-con. the pool and the jacuzzi was very very nice. however, we found the decoration in the rooms and the lobby a little bit "strange". the staff was very friendly and helped us to arrange our tours. overall, we can definitely recommend this hotel in puerto princesa.

I was surprise to find a van waiting for me at the Puerto Princesa airport that took me to the Deep Forest Garden Inn. The hotel is less than 10 minutes away from the airport. I arrived at the hotel at 9am and was allowed to check in at that time. The front desk was very helpful and they arranged for my City tour, Underground river tour a made reservations for me at Ka Lui restaurant. The deluxe rooms were big and included free wifi, a/c and a small flat screen tv. There were hand carved statues in the rooms, throughout the hotel, in the restaurant and In the courtyard. The food in the restaurant was excellent although I thought the menu was limited. I would definitely stay here again.

Amazing, charming place”

Superb restaurant, great ambience, great price

Deep Forest Garden Inn is one of the top hotels I ever stayed in in terms of price-value ratio. For a price of 2-3 star place, you get a 5 star comfort! Huge rooms, huge bathrooms, beautiful swimming pool with bar. It's right out of Puerto Princesa town, takes just 5-10 minutes to get into town. Even closer to the airport. Hotel provided free pick-up and drop-off. Do not miss their restaurant and wine cellar - delicious food and very, very reasonable prices for good wines. Will definitely stay here again on my next visit!

In enjoyed my stay in this place very much! This is one quaint hotel that gives you all the required comforts/amenities that one would look in their travel. Big, clean rooms complete with ref and mini-bar that has mini bottles of red wine, to go with it!!! - with reasonable prices, at that! Also, the comfort rooms are clean and complete with supplies and clean towels. I also enjoyed lazing around in the swimming pool and the jacuzzi that has the perfect warm temperature! I take pleasure in having our family photo-ops in their garden, complete with concrete animals and people as our background. I would also wish to commend their able staff giving great service to us and my children. Food is great. one order is actually good for 2! This is a quiet place that is not really far from the city. If you want peace and quiet, stay here! I would say that i will definitely book again in Deep Forest when i return in Puerto Pricesa!There is actually nothing to complain about in this hotel.

nice room andv services”

the room location, the canteen

at first, i was shocked the location of the hotel as it was located just about 2 kilometers from the airport. the only problem is that, the road going to that hotel is not paved well, but on the other hand you can insure that there is a lot of tricycles to be hired going into that hotel with a cheap price. the reception is quite small but you will meet gorgeous and very friendly staff. they will accompany you to your rooms, explain everything you need to know about the hotel.... how can i expalin the location? the restaurant main portion of it is just a simple as an ordinary restaurant but you will be amazed that on the left side of it, there is a garden type of dining area, sorrounded by beautiful flowers and trees and you feel like you are just having a dinner date with your gf and you willnever forget the very delicious food offered. frankly i missed their specialty #1, with very tasty lamayo..there is a pool in the center of the hotel sorrounded by different types of beautiful flowers and trees with a small bar near of it. the room is great i was very satisfied except the prices of wines and beers inside the fridge, will its quite expensive but anyway you have the right to buy your own drinks if you want too.. as per the travel tours is concern, they will explain to you how beautiful it is to stay in deep forest as well as how beautiful it is to explore the whole palawan.. you will really enjoy staying.

Great hotel with friendly staff and owner”

Everything was self-contained. The restaurant food was delicious - local seafare was so tasty! The bar was great and JeanPierre's attention to technology was 2nd to none!!!

individual hot water for each room. our 3 night stay never had a time without hot water. we arrived here as a mistake - took a flight from manila to the wrong airport on puerto princesa. i remembered deep forest from earlier reviews and decided to make the best of our mistake. the tours could be booked right from the hotel and transportation to/from town was exceptional. the "chess pool" was something i had never seen....basically it was a chessboard with actual movable pieces in a small pool. fun to cool off and play in the pool over a game of chess!!! very unique. the owner was kind and gracious and a pleasure to meet. we will return.

Clean, spacious rooms and excellent service!”

Get more than what you paid for! Friendly staff!

We stayed in the hotel for 4days and 3 night. The hotel is literally 3 minutes away from the airport. As we drew nearer to the vicinity, I was quite worried as I did not expect the slight crudeness of the entrance view, but I was immensely surprised when we entered the lobby area, the accents, sculptures and fixtures perfectly fit the theme of the hotel, it very well stood up to its name. I was more impressed when we were directed to our room, it was very spacious for a 2 pax capacity, another 2 beds can still fit inside. The garden, the pool, the Jacuzzi and the pond served as perfect backdrops for our kodak moments. The price of the food was reasonable, at first though we thought it was too pricey, one of their combo cost more than which is good for 2 persons, but when the food arrived, the 4 of us cannot even finish the whole meal and it taste good too! Was craving for lato (form of seaweed) and was looking everywhere for it, we've visited several restaurants in the city only to find out that the hotel actually serves the dish. And before I forget, the staff were beyond friendly, given a chance to go back to PP, I'd definitely stay in Deep Forest Garden Inn again.

A nice little spot away from Rizal Avenue”

food, room, service

Deep Forest Garden Inn is located way from the noise and activity of the main road but still relatively close to everything thanks to all the tricycles in Puerto Princesa. The rooms are alright: clean, big, with fan and aircon, minibar, TV and so on. We did not request the airport pickup when we booked but where surprised to see that a driver was waiting for us when we got off the plane and it was complimentary. The facilities are well maintained and the restaurant serves a large choice of international food. We had food 3 times there and we've never been disappointed. Only downside: with all the statues of people and animals and the pink and green swimming pool lights, the garden tend to look like a theme park at night.

Enjoyed our stay here!”

Well maintained, beautiful landscape, secluded and great staff!

After reviewing several places for our stay in Palawan I chose the Deep Forest Garden Inn. I did not want a place located in the heart of the hustle bustle that you normally find in Philippine towns and cities with their tri-cycles and Jeepneys. This place was located close to the airport and about a 15-30 ride to town. It was quiet and secluded which I found very enjoyable. The room was large, well maintained and more than adequate. The grounds were maintained beautifully with many tropical plants and flowers. They do use a lot of funky wood carved pieces and animals which some may find a little strange but I thought they were quite interesting and whimsical. The pool with float up bar was very nice as well. We ate at the hotel restaurant on many occasions and it was very enjoyable and relaxing. Since I do not eat seafood I thought the selection was a little limited but what I had was good and the servings very large, almost too much at times. The staff and front counter were all very warm and wonderful which is customary in the Philippines. You can also schedule all of your sigh seeing trips from right here at the hotel which was very convenient. We really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to others without hesitation!

The Best Hotel In Palawan”

their service was amazing

We were pickd up in the airport and we already felt the service that Deep Forest Garden Inn has to offer. When we arrived we were welcomed with a welcome a drink. And our room was ready. We got two deluxe rooms cause we thought that one room would not accomodat us but I was wrong. The deluxe room was sooooooo big. The ambience is so foresty. We Always have our breakfast intheir restaurant because the food is great. and its cheap. and its great. Their resto has so many dishes to offer. especially their chicken cordon bleu (must try). Wverything about the hotel is good except the location. The airport may be near but the city aint. So when you ride a tricycle its gonna be a little pricey. But for me deep forest garden inn is the best hotel in palawan

Fun & leisure with nature in Palawan!”

The hotel is a best place to relax with its nature inspired setting, wonderful wood carvings & decorations, & very spacious rooms.

I enjoyed my stay at the Deep Forest Garden Inn most especially my 2 year old kid. The place is nice because of its nature-inspired setting where you get to enjoy the bounty of nature & you can even spot different species of birds playing around the garden. The wood carvings are truly a work of art & all those wonderful statues surrounding the garden. The hotel is really a great place to relax & unwind after a long day of tour activities. With its friendly & accommodating staff where they get to you rght away when you need assistance & their pools, jacuzzi & pool bar! I will probably book there again given the. Hance to go back to palawan, I'd still choose this hotel. I've even recommended it to my colleagues who are planning to visit palawan.

hotel with a personal touch”

swimming pool

With three (3) days and three (3) nights stay with the hotel, our puerto princessa, palawan experience was the best. Upon arrival at the hotel, we were welcomed by friendly staff. Me and my partner was not expecting a good hotel since the road to hotel from the airport is not that good. But to our surprise, a hotel in the middle of nowhere exist. The rooms are large, just okay for two individuals. I like the room but the aircondition is not that strong. So we need to switch on the electric fan which is also provided in the room. The place is very private. It is not crowded unlike in other hotels. Lastly, i love the winery. It gives a cozy and private feeling.The food is also good. In all, our stay was perfect. Thanks to deep forest.

very nice place, rooms are big and clean..”

pool side are clean, place were so relaxing.. nice to stay..

We really had so much fun and enjoyed the place. Deep forest is just 5mins away from the airport and probably 10 to 15mins driving at city proper. If we have a chance again to visit Puerto Princesa, we will choose Deep Forest Garden Inn again. Staff were so accommodating, hospitable and always bears a smile. Keep your good service, keep place clean and green always... Thanks again..

A quiet Place”

quiet - food- service

Very good stay at the deep forest - quirky fun layout- For white guy staying there its not boracay in general to the palawan hoilday - good if your doing excursions hotel very good service in everything after 10pm, its shut down pool bar etc.room service it all goes quiet - so depends on your itinary all the tours of palawan are catered for hotel very well organised went out in town be mindfull everything is a journey ? even robinsons mall is 8km from hotel. If your a romantic couple great place - could do with a later venue for those not ready for bed at 10pm food good value and best compared to some restaurants there in puerta princesa..staff very good and helpful ! loved the theme if they add a small gym and massage center spa then great for improvment - internet for me was good quality - there were lots of quirky carvings and an interesting set up....pool bar as i said closed at 10pm, Not much to do after that hotel very clean and efficient with help and bookings and arrangments of all your needs my only negative was the puerta princesa as a place not very good if youve been to boracay you will be disapointed the honda bay tour and of course the caves are a must so its worth it to see would recomend the hotel to all my freinds but personally theres not much to do in princesa ! other than the early morning tours that start at 6:30am so your day is early and full ! so be aware if you want to see these places there is lots of travel. Loved the Deep forrest !
