        Very good!”

        We only had the pleasure of staying for one night, but we still want to write a review. Arriving with a bus at midnight, they stayed up waiting for us. Communication was fast and clear on both phone and on Agoda, we had hassle free check in, very very clean accommodation, A/C, hot shower, comfortable beds, quiet sleep, included breakfast, and free shuttle to the airport. Perfect for us connecting by bus from El Nido and flying to Cebu (worst case you can walk in daylight to/from the bus station) Most of all we want to underline their politeness and service attitude. A lot of value for money, thank you for everything, we will definitely stay here again when in Puerto princesa!

        This B&B was within walking distance from San Jose bus terminal, which is handy if going to or from El Nido. Room was very nice, big and clean. Bed very comfortable, though small for a double. Shower was hot, breakfast was decent and WiFi works. Our hosts were lovely, very friendly, good English and we were given a lift to the airport. Highly recommend!

        what a great find. this family run B&B is perfect. Photos as per pics. the family couldn't be nicer. They make breakfast fresh every morning when you wake up, pick up and drop off at the airport, arranged trips at a great price and we so friendly. helpful and knowledgeable I stayed again later in my trip. This place really felt like going home to your parents and being taken care of. Then rooms are comfy with everything you need, clean, ac, wifi , hot water etc. location is nice, set in a little garden area away from the city noise but easily accessed with local transport. shopping mall not to far has everything you might need. I cannot recommend this place enough you will love it.

        Good location, 10 peso ride by tricycle to puerto princes's main road. We we're given the room we booked for. And the staff we're very accommodating and very helpful everytime.

        This is a good place to stay in puerto princesa. We got free rt transfers and we we're able to request what breakfast we wanted. The staff we're extremely nice and accommodating. The place seems new so you won't have a problem with the a/c, beds are comfortable and there was free wifi. It's 10mins away from the airport but the location is very peaceful and safe. Would definitely come back here. Thumbs up to this b&b!

        Salut Margaux et amis Merci beaucoup pour votre critique injuste. Après vous avoir offert un service complet à vous et à vos amis, qui venaient vous chercher à l’aéroport, répondaient à toutes vos questions insensées, remplir votre bouteille d’eau gratuitement et cuisiner des nouilles pour vous n’était pas un bon service? Vous êtes le seul à donner cette note, nous ne sommes pas des voleurs, comme vous l'avez dit dans votre commentaire. Merci beaucoup pour cela, mais donnez-vous un petit conseil, n'allez pas aux Philippines si vous n'avez pas assez d'argent pour continuer à négocier les tarifs des tournées.
