                exceptional service, value for money and good food”

                service of the staff; quality of food and comfortable rooms

                after our tiring yet memerable trip in El Nido, my husband and I searched in Agoda and found a reasonable rate accommodation but i never expected the warm welcome from the hotel staff. we were even delighted when we entered the room, it has balcony with overlooking the bay of Puerto Princesa. It was a "wow". the room was very clean, huge and comfy. we found it relaxing watching the sunset, no wonder why the hotel's named SUNLIGHT. overall, the interior design looks elegant, their Saluhan restaurant has nice ambiance, tidy and offers a buffet dinner which is very affordable for only P299 with a wide selection of viands and it has salad bar which my husband really loved. the food attendants are pleasing, they are very accommodating to our requests. our last day in Palawan started with a sumptuous complimentary buffet breakfast, since we needed to be at the airport early, the Front Office staff were quick in assisting our check out and their driver for the free airport transfers was very helpful making sure that we are comfortable. well, our stay in Sunlight completed our memorable stay in the island paradise. will surely recommend this destination and the hotel to our family and friends back home. see you again Palawan!

                Central location,large bedroom/bathroom, wide variety and delicious breakfast

                We were happy and very satisfied with our stay at the Sunlight Guest Hotel in Puerto Princesa. The airport shuttle was there as soon as we got off the plane and was a short drive to the hotel and our return to the airport by a new and aircon van was very prompt and quick. Our deluxe room was huge and the big bathroom has a separate bath tub (with spa. Breakfast has a wide variety and has a selection of local fares, as well as continental, complete with cakes and local desserts and fresh tropical fruits. Bathroom supplies are replenished every day (with free toothbrushes,razors, etc.)Local tours e.g. to Subterranian River at St. Paul National Park can be arranged at the hotel. Guests should not miss this natural wonder which is around 2 hrs by airconed coach plus boat rides. You can go around the city (which has a lot of restaurants e.g. Jollibee,Chowking,KFC,McDonalds,etc.)by tricycle or jeepneys. There are no taxis in Puerto. Big shopping mall is within the building and public market is nearby. I will definitely stay here again.

                Gorgeous view of the bay! Close to downtown Puerto Princesa and very spacious rooms

                Had a great stay at Sunlight Guest Hotel. The room was very clean and spacious. We had an inside room so we didn't have a view from our room, but we enjoyed the amazing view overlooking the water from the hotel restaurant every morning for breakfast. The staff was very friendly and helpful, especially when we needed to make a last minute reservation for van transport from Puerto princesa to El Nido. The only minor complaint I had was the bed was pretty hard and not that comfortable (from a westerner's perspective), however I think this may be fairly standard for the Philippines.

                The check in process was very fast and the bellboy friendly and happy to assist with luggage. A welcome message of our names was projected on a screen at reception; this was a nice personal touch. Breakfast was well varied, served by smiling and helpful staff who were happy to assist with any requests. Room service was very good. The cleanliness of the room initially, and standard maintained by housekeeping throughout the stay was excellent. Overall, I would highly recommend the sunlight guest hotel to anybody staying or travelling to Puerto Princesa.

                The location is great, just around the corner from the Puerto Princesa baywalk and down the road from the SM Mall. All of the staff are very nice and attentive and there wasn’t anything that was too much hassle for them. A great bonus was the complimentary airport transfer to and from the hotel.. the other thing that we loved about his hotel was the fact they provided a packed breakfast (sandwich) when we left at 5am in the morning- this was not asked for and they purely did this for our comfort! Thank you Sunlight Guest Hotel for a pleasurable stay!

                Location, Food, service and room

                Our stay in Puerto Princesa Palawan was perfect because we got a perfect hotel to go with it. From the pick up to the airport, to the greetings and warm welcome, and the room was awesome just like what you see from 5star hotels and same as in the picture. The only downside to it was they don't have wifi to the rooms and you can only connect from the lobby or in the restaurant. Also, they don't have a swimming pool but that's no problem with us because we enjoyed our stay there. What we really like was the buffet breakfast, it was always different everyday and there's a lot of food you can choose to eat. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to have a great stay in puerto princesa palawan.

                Service, service, service!!!

                With the influx of chain hotels and all sorts of imaginable forms of accommodations lurking about every street corner of Puerto Princessa, one would be hard pressed to find a real gem in the midst of mayhem. What sets the Sunlight Guest Hotel apart is its service. For example, there is this young lady front desk who tirelessly booked a last minute trip for us by calling & cajoling at least 6 tour groups in a span of a few minutes. To this day I have yet to meet someone who can multi task as fast as she can. She finally found a tour group that would take us and with a warm smile suggested we get prepared in 10 minutes for pick up. Suffice to say, we were ready in 2 minutes. Not an isolated situation. The staff consistently performed service above expectation. To say we will be back is redundant. In the hotel realm of what's new, what's bigger, which one has the most gimmicks, the Sunlight Guest Hotel offers what most forget is the best currency....service.

                We were about to take a taxi when we landed at Puerto Princesa airport. The two staffs from Sunlight Guest Hotel heard us talking to taxi driver,then immediately showed up and guided us to their free shuttle. That was really impressive. The room condition was fine for the price. The best thing about this hotel is the patient and keen staffs. The waiter at the front desk was so sweet, and by the way, he's hot! Lol

The room layout at Sunlight Guest Hotel seems specifically designed to mimic that fine 5 star hotel at about 1/4 the cost. I was very impressed. Request a bay side king room, you will not be disappointed!

                top class rooms, Port view rooms are a must.”

                Room and facilities

                A luxurious hotel, we had a delux room which offered a fabulous view of the Port and Bay walk areas. The staff were very helpful. We were very disappointed with the hotel restaurant, the breakfast was only ok (you're better off walking out and paying about P70 for a feast of a breakfast anyway) but didn't live up to the rest of the establishment, but the food at our one not pre-paid meal we had there was very poor, especially when you discover that in Puerto Princesa there are a number of outstanding restaurants (you cannot visit without going to Kalui and Badjao Seafront). Puerto Princesa is a fabulous location and the Sunlight is right in the thick of it, but set on the fourth floor of a shopping centre, diagonally across from the markets, so every walk out the door provides a riot of colourful activity. Anyway, back to the Hotel. Great room. Helpful staff. Would not pay any extra even for included breakfast next time (and there may well be a next time!) but definitely spend the extra for a room with a view of the Port because the comings and goings by water and by land will enchant you, the people will delight you and the culture and nightlife are just superb. Enjoy, we did!

                free shuttle to the hotel, staff knows your name and room number by heart, hospitable hotel with high service, great view on city bay

                Our stay at the Sunlight Guest Hotel was the highlight of our vacation, we got a 50% discount so we had an exceptional value for money ratio. The room is very luxuriously furnished, the room has a thermostat which keeps the climate in the room comfortable. There is a big balcony with great view on the bay (don't look at the rubbish directly below the balcony though). The bathroom is big and has a bath and a shower, the only minuses would be the absence of a bathroom lock and the glass walls. The roomservice is quick and when you call they already know your room number. The restaurant is very beautiful and it has a great choice of foods at the breakfast and beautiful bay view. The staff is very helpful and when you ask someone at the counter a question they already know your name and the room you stay in, that feels very welcoming. The hotel also assists in arranging tours (in advance of your stay). Book the underground river tour and island hopping tour. It's also possible to customise tours. A restaurant in the neighbourhood which is very recommendable is Badjao Seafront.

Right beside the hotel there is a huge supermarket. There are shuttle services provided by hotel to and fro from airport, so travellers don't need to worry about getting there.

                Clean room, nice bathroom, clean and warm sheets, superb view, breakfast buffet surprisingly offers several selection

                When we arrived at Puerto Princesa Airport, we did not expect to be fetched by the hotel van. It was pleasantly surprising to even see our name outside the airport. We took some time inside the airport not expecting the van, and funny that it was the driver who was apologetic he was not near the exit of the airport when we went out. Upon reaching the hotel, again there was a welcome sign at the lobby. The lobby tho modest looks attractive. We did not expect the room to be as beautiful. The bathroom which has a glass partition from the bedroom is nice. The bathtub even has a cute jacussi like faucet. . The food is good and not so expensive, their breakfast is good and has several choices. Having travelled much, in the Philippines, asian countries and even USA. . we are surprised that since breakfast is already part of the room rate, they have served several viands,has fruits, lots of coffee and bread. . The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful in our search for places to visit and dine.

                It's my first time to Puerto Princessa, Palawan, Philippines. My family was greeted by the hotel courtesy van to the hotel. Pros: The hotel was clean and the hotel staff was courteous. The hotel is a few minutes walk to the baywalk and all the stores and shopping in town. There was free wifi in the room. Cons: I took a shower and the hotel drain took a long time to drain down. The room was a little noisy to sleep during the day because the rooms were separated by glass doors to the adjacent shopping centers. I asked the hotel for a map of the city and attractions but none were available. Puerto Princessa is a small town so we cannot expect too much from a small town hotel. Overall, it's clean and safe to spend a few days in this hotel. I may stay again at this hotel if I come to Palawan again

                3nights in Sunlight”

                Friendly, beautiful, save

                The Sunlight Guesthouse is a very nice hotel in the center of puerto princesa. Next to the hotel is a supermarket where u can buy everything u need and opposite is a market with fresh fruits. The only bad thing have been the dirty towels but after complaining they changed them immediately

                Convenient location, great rooms, amazing restaurant, efficient staff

                This hotel seems to have been recently renovated, or maybe even just built. It is very clean, with large rooms, and a great bathroom, with amazing showers. I have stayed here several times and would advise asking for a bayview room with a balcony. The Baywalk is just steps away. Whenever I stayed here I booked with breakfast included. Good decision!! The breakfast buffet is sooo good, in a large room with an all glass wall facing the bay. The restaurant staff were wonderful. Excellent hotel, I will always choose this when I stay in Puerto Princesa. Would be great for honeymooners.
