            Awesome staff”

            If you’re looking for a place to stay in Taytay, Palawan, Pems should be your first option. I booked this place for my father’s surprise birthday and booked a 3 night stay in their lovely single detached rooms. The event was very successful. The owner and staffs were preparing the venue a day before the event. That was awesome and very reassuring.

            Lovely place!”

            Taytay is a small, quiet place, and the hotel was just lovely! The staff were so nice and helpful, and the rooms are big and comfortable. That said, the infrastructure in taytay is very old and unstable. the water pressure was poor and bed small came out from the shower, so don't expect any Western standards in here

            nicer than you'd expect”

            Restaurant is good, nothing special. Its very close to the port. across the street from a bank and taytay divers. Good overall, easy to get around.

            Simple and Good”

            It was very convenient to stay here as we were going to Apulit Island the next morning. The room was spacious but lighting somewhat ruined the mood as our toddler was very uncomfortable with it. Food was excellent and staff were friendly and attentive. Plus points as we changed to another room easily and had an quick transfer to the port. The location albeit not a top tourist spot in Palawan was very relaxed. Basic necessities were available in the town and going around was easy. It is though far from Puerto Princesa but just an hour an a half from El Nido.

            A nice place to stay”

            Pros: The bungalows are situated in very nice and clean garden surroundings. In the center close to Fort Santa Isabel but still in quiet surroundings. Cons: The wifi was not within range of our bungalow and the showerhead did not provide enough (only cold) water to wash out shampoo of the hair due to heavy lime scale.

            Outstanding stay”

            The location is fantastic, the rooms are clean and well-kept and the staff are absolutely fantastic!

            On Google maps Pems is located next to the bus terminal (be careful as is actually in Centre of Taytay, 7 mins by tricycle). Value for money is outstanding and the staff went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. The manager Chan Lee is such a great guy- he took us on a day of island hopping with lunch included. word of warning: there are no places to get money out in Taytay (closest is El Nido) so make sure you factor that in! Hotel was kind enough to let us leave and pay later for the island hopping when we got back to Puerto Princesa through the Pawn Shop Highly recommend Pems!

            The Room with a Terrace”

            The location was perfect as it is near a tourist spot and in that same place, just adjacent to the accommodation, there were series of small resto/cafe. The food there was acceptable although we were disappointed in some resto; but the halohalo at the far end resto was really good and it was cheap (50 pesos); just tell them not to put too much ice. Pems resto offered good food as well. Staff are very friendly and because of the spacious place with trees, you can easily buy bottle of wine and have a sip in the terrace.
