              The place run by the owner, clean and safe. They are friendly and helpful. The local restaurants and fresh market are within walking distance. By tricycle takes about 5-10 minutes to Robinson mall (immigration) and 15 minutes to SM mall where you can get some international food if you get homesick. We recommend Prima Residence if you want to be out of the main Puerto Princesa city. We will definitely be back to stay here when we are in PPS. Y&G

              Clean air conditioned rooms and friendly staff.

              prima residences is a bit far from the city proper, but if you are on a tight budget then prima is a good choice for you. for only , you'll get a clean, air-conditioned room with a private cr and a led tv. the room also comes with a free breakfast for two! going to town only costs p10/pax. however, you may need to hire a tricycle going back if you're planning on staying late. you can hire a tricycle for only 50 pesos in the morning and 80-100 pesos at night. some tricycle drivers will ask for (which is way too expensive so don't fall for it). what i liked about the place is the way they took care of their clients. while high-end resorts/hotels will also go out of their way to care for their clients, they sometime lack the personal attention that is ever present in small lodgings like prima. promptness is something they need to work on, though. sometimes, they take too long to respond to emails or text messages. we also encountered problems (when we checked-in at the airport) coz our baggage came a bit late in spite of the fact that they promised to send it in ample time to the airport. but i guess, that can be forgiven as the place is run by lovely people. try booking your tours with them coz they have affordable rates (as opposed to the ones offered at other lodgings). the ug and honda bay tour they offered us only cost pax and it comes with a welcome dinner that is made up of steamed lapu-lapu, coke, rice, vegetable salad, seaweed salad, and clams.

              it's a few steps from the highway where you can take your ride to the coliseo where you can apply for the permit to the underground river, close to the van terminal (8 pesos in tricycle) where you can take the ride to the underground river. The new market is close to this terminal. If you wish to prepare your food and eat inside your unit, everything you need is provided for. There are cooking utensils, plates, etc. They also provide complementary distilled drinking water in a big container.

              prima residences provided everything we needed: there are utensils for preparing and eating our food, there is a dining table and four chairs so you can eat comfortably. the staff were helpful in providing information on attractions in the area: how to go there, the prices of transportation to them. there was no heater but you can use the stove and kettle if you need hot water.

              we chose the hotel via internet and it was the happiest choice, price was great, service was incredible, breakfast sufficient, refill of drinking water available, it was our first stay in palawan and we were very happy as we had all the support needed from the reception and the owner. we can recommend it !!! supermarket is 20 min away, the san hose 10 min walk, there is the new market as well. without being in the noisy city proper we manged to see all we wanted, it was easy to get a jeepney to the port or to honda bay. the most important very profesional service!!!

              Good and peaceful budget place for those who do not need to be near central Puerto Princesa but value easy access out of town and fresh food (bus station nearby and the biggest public market). ALso for independent people with own transport like motorbike or car convenient as you may take both main roads out of town easier and thus save time in exploring environment. Owner and staff friendly and readily accommodate special wishes.

              I stayed in this place since I was attending a conference in the Palawan State University. The accommodation is a very modest place so do not expect too much. There are some pitfalls like the erratic condition of the television, the faucet that you have to manually work around and the toilet bowl that does not flash easily. However, these are tolerable if you have been travelling in remote areas in different countries. The best asset of the place are their staff who will assist you willingly. Kat and Karen are very accommodating. The down side though is the location, a bit far from the city proper but you can ride a tricycle or multicab to access the city center.
