        Staff , amenities and location !

        The stay was great ! I transferred from the Libis Bayview hotel and was glad that It did ; not that the LBH was bad, it's that the Skylight is so much better ! In my opinion, after seeing other resorts and hotels there in Puerto , I'm convinced that the Skylight's the best place to stay and will do so again - definitely - the next time I'm in Puerto . I strongly suggest and recommend it above all other places that there is to choose from . If for no other reason , the restaurant is a seafood lovers paradise with live tanks and a great staff - enjoy !!

        This hotel has it all and changed my perspective on RedDoorZ hotels for the better. Although reserved under Skylight, i got a RedDoorZ room (labelled as such on the room’s door). I didn’t have a window to speak of, and the noise from the echo of the large ground floor can be disturbing at times (especially from that talkative cat 🐱) but other than that, i had a great time. 10-1 minutes walk to the S.M. Mall; restaurant on site with very affordable part-buffet, part-menu breakfasts;ATMs around.

        It is what it is...”

        Well located

        Having read a number of (somewhat critical) reviews before I stayed here I was a little anxious when I arrived. Overall I was pleasantly surprised and for the cost couldn't complain. The Hotel is right in the heart of the town and reflects the culture of the Island. If you go to Puerto Princesa then don't expect too many Western Style Hotels, food and service (what the critical reviewers apparently expected). The place is relatively under developed and the Filipino's tend to stay in the cheaper hotels anyway, so they cater for that demographic.

Not great for people with minor disability. Towels are dingy. Color is no longer white but gray. Room are small for a family with 2 kids. I had lots of regrets with this hotel choice. Front desk lack professional behavior in dealing with their guest. Will go back to Puerto Princesa but not in this hotel ever.

        We stayed here 1 night before our flight back to Manila. the hotel is right small in the center or the city, literally near banks, restaurants, SM, public market, etc. Very easy to get a ride. The buffet breakfast is good. Don't expected too much of a buffet, with the price of the room, it's worth it. The only downside was our towers were damp. It's as if it was taken off from the dryer way you early. Informed Housekeeping about it and it was replaced immediately.

        Even if i book online, i should still get the free breakfast meal as it is inherent in most of the hotels. Also, regardless if i booked online or directly at the front desk, i sjould be treated a regular guest that could avail the free airport transport. Btw, pla check on the hot shower of each room bec not all are functioning. Aside from these, everything is great.

        worth the price

        very much worth the price. The thing impressed me the most is that the hotel will give us a bottle of cool tea just after our arrival.

        Great Bed

        It's a shabby hotel but the staff are helpful and cheerful, and the beds excellent. Breakfast was grim shared with the flies and almost inedible. Location is very good, but then Puerto Princesa is not that big to worry too much, but stay in town itself.

        Excellent staff.”

        Nice compensation. Great location.

        We booked 2 double-bed rooms and 1 twin-bed room, but they gave us 3 twin-bed room. Our rooms are located in basement. That's not good. Wifi didn't work. We felt very angry. Staff said very sorry immediately and gave us nice compensation. They gave us breakfast and free private shuttle service from hotel to shopping mall and restaurant. The driver waited there as we finished our schedule. They also gave 2 free cake because of my friend's birthday. That was great! MoneyGram is on the opposite side and rate is good.

        Centrally located ”

        Convenient and centrally located and within walking distance to main areas. Quiet, Clean and tidy rooms, just hear dogs barking in the local area, but aircond blocks it out and the standard rooms don't have fridges in the rooms. A little bit of construction at the front with the pathway so when it's raining it's a little muddy Otherwise a nice place.

        Location at the center of the city

        The hotel does not have an elevator but the food is good for the price. From the Airport to the Church and to the mall everything is just a short tricycle ride.
