My wife and I had a very enjoyable 3 night stay at Sunset Colors a few days ago, staying in superior double room above the restaurant/reception area. Its a very large room, with separate bathroom and shower and extra bedding for use as a family room as well. There is a balcony seating area upstairs and one other double room upstairs, with four cottages alongside the main building. The construction is light, so as a result sound can travel between the thin walls from the next room and the restaurant, and other cottages, although it's often quiet after 9pm when the generator is turned off. There are also various night sounds from nature that you should expect to hear... the sea, birds, dogs and other occassional night animals. There weren't any mosquito nets, but there is netting on the door and windows. Power runs by generator from around 8am to 11am and 7pm to 9pm at night, with solar charged lights for use otherwise.
The location is almost perfect and is away from the tourist trail, 15 minutes from Port Barton by boat. There is a lovely samdy beachfront, although it is rocky so notideal for swimming. It takes around 3 to 4 hours to get to Sunset Colors from Puerto Princessa by van. The last 22km off the main road is a mix of partly sealed and unsealed roads, so it can get bumpy. The hotel had arranged a 4pm van pick up from the airport for us but as they tend to fill up the van before they leave it wasn't until 530pm that we finally left their depot outside Puerto Princessa, so we arrived later than expected. The hotel boatmen were still waiting for us when we arrived at Port Barton and we were also able to get a meal and drink when we arrived after 9pm even though the restaurant should have closed up, which we greatly appreciated. The food for breakfast and dinner was very good. A nice mix of western, Filipino and seafood, with drinks available, all at reasonable prices. We received a large, complimentary fruit platter for staying 3 nights. We had a Globe data sim card, so didn't try WiFi, although we think that was only available intermittently.
There is a mix of activities you can do for free, such as kayaking, using the SUP's or bikes, relaxing on the beach on some super comfortable sun loungers, or taking an island hopping boat tour. We did the boat tour with one other couple for 800 pesos each for the day, including a BBQ fish or chicken lunch on a beach, with stops for snorkeling along the way.
The boatmen, staff and manager, Randy, were all very helpful and friendly and helped arranged our ongoing van from Port Barton to El Nido as well. A really nice stay in a super area, to be highly recommended.
