We enjoyed our stay at Paboreal to the absolute maximum. This is the best place I've stayed in throughout Philippines and possibly the whole of Asia. Everything, from the staff to the decor, comfort, cleanliness and the personalised treatment we were given was 5 star. I have never felt so at home while travelling before. The hotel, the owner and all the staff are beyond fantastic!
I fully recommend staying at Paboreal for all I have mentioned above and the value for money.

I cant quite put into words how happy I was staying at Paboreal. The whole place is beautifully designed, full of tasteful, exciting details and kept incredibly clean. The room is very comfortable and clean and the pool is lovely.
The best thing about this place however is the owner Enrico and his wonderful, attentive and friendly staff. They made us feel completely at home and are some of the nicest people I have ever met. They seemed to care about us as though we were family. Despite the tropical cyclones they made our time in Puerto Princesa a real pleasure!
I recommend Paboreal as one of the top places I have ever stayed in and I hope to return someday soon.

There are millions if hostels / B&Bs in PPS . Why did i choose this ? I think it's becoz of their Piano Pool pic & many good comments both on Tripadvisor & Agoda! Yes! Besides those, also becoz it is close to the airport!
We stayed two nights in Paboreal for the ending of our 8days PPS trip. We just wanted to hv more relaxed moments last two days bf we come back MACAO. In fact , what we experienced here really made us feel amazing!
The ambiance , the pool, the room ...all are awesome! Very clean , spacious, from all decorations, every little corners of the place , u really can feel how the owner & staff put their biggest efforts to make here be the most comfortable one to all guests!
But the most UNFORGETTABLE part is the hospitality & kindness of the owner & staff. The owner waited for our arrival & gave us welcoming! & then also keep giving us suggestion where to eat and where to go , it just made u feel u are just at home! More than that is, all the staff are really courteous , always receive smile and greetings!
Seems i reveal too many right? U must come & experience by ur ownself! Yes ! But forgive me i really want to tell one more . It's another out of our expectations. When we left , the owners even came with us to the aiport to send us GOODBYE💞💞💞
We're really appreciate to u all from Paboreal 😊

Superb room, good food, nice pool, great service and reliable wifi. Icing on the cake was when our flight got cancelled so we returned to the hotel during our waiting time and the staff and owner were extremely accommodating and we were very well looked after. We would definitely choose Paboreal again and highly recommend!

We (2 adults, 2 children, 12 and 10) spent our last night in the Philippines at Paboreal Boutique Hotel and enjoyed it very much. Very friendly and efficient service and staff, very nice place (nice architecture, overall atmosphere, rooms, location). Don't be afraid to be "far" from downtown. A tricycle ride takes you there in 10 minutes and there are good place close by to eat and spend the evening too.

A new hotel well laid out with a small swimming pool with loungers to chillout & get some sun, Very friendly staff who will go out of their way to help you, Free airport transfer both ways, they have a number of tricycle drivers that they will call for you for trips into Peurto Princesa and beyond, breakfast is included but the menu is not extensive i would advise going out for lunch & dinner there are many good resturants & the staff are only too pleased to advise on good eating places, The Ka Lui resturant is super but ask reception to call for reservation as very popular seafood resto, rooms are kept very clean with silent aircon, showers and wc very good, overall we had a very pleasent 5 night stay here very quiet so if you like a noisy place with people buzzing round this is not for you. word of warning it is a NON SMOKING HOTEL although there is a smoking area outside of the front door which you can sit in & take a coffee etc but once you go through the front door it is no smoking I am a smoker but found it to be no hardship to go outside. Enjoy you stay, we did.

We found at this boutique hotel our moment of peace and quiet.
The staff is very kind and friendly.
Pick up and drop off at the airport was perfectly coordinated.
They also helped us to book our tours and restaurants in the area.
A private tricycle service is available always at the hotel door.

If your not an economic leader and in or around Manila or even heading for Manila in week 47 you were in big trouble. Almost all domestic and many international flight have been canceled at last notice. Particularly peculiar since an apex meeting is not planned over night. So when we actually did arrive at Puerto Princessa we felt were welcomed by the French host and probably owner of Paboreal boutique hotel. The host and his staff have been waiting forever since our flight was delayed several times. Aston we we were on our way and welcomed with a nice refreshment and lots of information. Within 20 arranged our next couple of days. A tour to the underground river. A transfer to the next hotel and restaurant recommendations included. The room is spacious and well maintained. The pool is nice and the milkshakes are great. How ever the real reason to visit is the staff.
