Marvelous place, all around a huge pool with direct access from the rooms to the water. Big rooms, well equipped. Inly problem was the bhere are two beds, not a big double one. Had a minor clogging problem, promptly solved. Good air conditioning.

Me and my family had a fantastic time at the resort. The staff provided consistent exceptional service. Arrangement of airport transfers was swift. They have a complimentary Pickup and drop off to the airport. They were very prompt ;) We originally booked 2 suite rooms but since the jacuzzi was not working, they graciously upgraded one room and gave us a complimentary massage . Almost all of our requests were accommodated and they even went out of their way - ex. Decorated the room to celebrate my Dad’s birthday, cooked French fries even when it's not in menu for my daughter and on our last day since our flight was early, they allowed us to pre-order our food for the next day . There were some construction happening but this didn't hinder us from enjoying the amenities. Kudos to all staff including Joy from Manila reservations, AJ and his team at the lobby, the cheerful OJTs, staff at Tomato and Basil and the pool maintenance guys. We’ll definitely be back!

Girlfriend and I stayed here for several nights. The front desk hostess kindly upgraded our room to a pool access room; unfortunately due to the typhoon that hit back in December 2021, they were in the midst of reopening and cleaning up their property in mid-May. The pool was in the process of being filled and was topped off when we were leaving. The grounds is beautiful and I love the art installations and cultural pieces in their lobby/lounge area. Staff always warmly greeted us with so much mabubay every time we walked through the lobby. :) Rooms were spacious and clean. There are several water dispensers near the rooms so accessing clean water was not a problem. You may have to ask them to replace the water jug as we did on one occasion. Don't forget to wear your mosquito repellent! Food was OK, I hope that they'll expand their selection of foods in the future. The property is about a 10-15 minute ride from the main road. It will cost around 150php one-way so expect to pay 300php round-trip. The resort offers a shuttle to the main road; however, it's pricey at 800php. Can't remember if that's one-way or round-trip. Definitely recommend it here if you want to get away from the city and to be in a more secluded environment. Regardless, you will love being here.

Had our wedding event here recently. The staff were professional and very accomodating! The hotel looks so beautiful felt like i was in bali. Great for pictorials. We also checked in at one of their rooms with jaccuzi. It was very spacious, clean and well maintained. Really worth the price. I felt so safe staying at princesa because they are very strict with health protocols. Will definetly stay here again!

There is no doubt this is one of the best if not the best hotel on Palawan. And this comes from my Filipino friends in Puerto Prinesa. I stayed here for around 2 months on business in the best room at the hotel. It is one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed at. I used the swimming pools, Jacuzzi and gym on a daily basis before going to work. The cuisine is tremendous. I had breakfast, lunch and dinner and the standard of the food is first class. All the staff were really friendly. Once you had finished breakfast you could walk outside and see the Carp and view the big dragonflies. I also wandered over to the water villas and used the kayak to go out to the sandbar. All of this is underpinned by all the experienced and friendly staff at the hotel. Thank you so much for making my stay so enjoyable.
