    Value for money and good amenities”

    Nice mini swimming pool, loaded bar, very accessible from the airport

    had a great experience with the helpful staff and good amenities of the hotel. there's a mini pool at the center of the cottage-like rooms, and the baths even had water heaters. my only disappointments were that the place was quite old and they had very small tvs. other than that, the hotel is an excellent place to stay when you're touring puerto princesa. it is very near the airport and the city center, and also near some places you can visit - the special battalion world war ii museum is only a motorcycle ride away and the tiangge where you can buy pasalubong is also quite near. the staff can also help arrange your tours at no extra charges.

    Perfect if you want to dive.”

    The Dive school.

    I was greeted well, the staff were friendly, and the rooms were clean, but not luxurious, depends what you are after, it suited me fine. Wifi didn't reach the rooms but no problem at the bar, better to Facebook at the bar than in your room. I only had breakfast so can't comment on the food, I did eat next door at a bar/resto called Pergola and the food there is superb and very cheap. Nothing is that far in Puerto Princesa, just jump in a tricycle, and you are there in no time, find out the local rates first, they will help you in Moana reception.

Walking distance to shopping and restaurants. You could actually walk to the airport (5 minutes) if you had little luggage.

    Great Place , Only place I will go ”

    It's small, quite, great staff,nice pool, friendly new people all the time.

    I took my girl friend there for her birthday , we decided that we will use this place for her birthday every year. I had the smallest room and it was fine for us , we didn't spend much time there during the day. Very friendly people everywhere we went , never worried about walking around at night . The pollution will get to you from the 3 wheel cabs , but they are the best way to get around and really cheap . If you decide to island hop I suggest Pandan Is. in Honda Bay, easy to get a boat , nice beach good food good drink , shade trees and tiki huts to sit in , we went to Pandan Is. 2 times , very nice place .

    Small hotel close the airport ”

    Closeness to airport

    We stay there for two nights. Staff very supportive to organize day trip to Honda bay even at short notice. We booked deluxe room with aircon. However aircon can hardly be used during the night as it is much too noisy. Due to closeness to the airport it is also rather noisy in the morning. Room was rather low standard ( bed sheets not very clean) and bathroom rather small and hot water was not always available. Menu for breakfast rather limited. Good hotel to stay one night before taking flight the next day or travel to other places in Palawan.

    hi, the stay was quite enjoying.. all employees just have that wonderful smiles and greetings everytime we are inside the hotel vicinity. my wife and i simply love the big portions of the food served at their restaurant. i was just upset and surprised when i found out that they have no toothbrush provided in the rooms. as a tourist, they didn't realize that visitors have no time to go out and look for toothbrushes for themselves. it's quite dissapointing for that part!!!

    Good location, rooms rather dated.”

    Near airport, has swimming pool.

    The hotel is in a great location for people going to/from the airport as it's about a 5 minute walk. There are many stores, souvenir shops, bars and restaurant nearby. The hotel has a small pool and but real area to relax by it. The rooms were dated and in need of refurbishment, particularly the bathrooms. The aircon was ancient and didn't work too well. The 'hot' shower was infact cold. I didn't find the staff at all friendly. The hotel also has lots of petty rules which I found unnecessary. It's ok for the price and location.
