My husband and I first stayed at the Dolce Vita maybe 10 years ago, after spending a night at a bigger and more famous hotel in the city. We'd booked to spend Christmas and New Year in the big hotel but realised our mistake as soon as we walked inside: large, impersonal, nothing at all special.
Fortunately we were able to transfer to the Dolce Vita and we've never wanted even to try any of the new hotels that are now springing up there . For us, the DV has the perfect combination - boutique hotel, very well maintained, happy ambience, lovely pool, a friendly restaurant and always service with a smile from staff and management.

Room Tip: We always try to book the room we stayed in on our first visit - an upper villa room with its own balcony and view of the pool and garden.

This hotel was recommended by a frequent flyer to Puerto Princesa. This was our first trip to Puerto Princesa after 28 years , since our honeymoon. It was a great stay because of the friendly staff and the peaceful place. Food was ok, not that great but everything else including the cottage-like rooms were surprisingly comfortable.

It was our first time to be in Puerto Princesa. Months before our wedding we are looking for a perfect hotel we would like to stay in for our 4days 3 nights Puerto Princesa trip. Dolce Vita caught our attention. We had a great experience there, foods are awesome. We stayed in their upper villa and the room is very nice. Hotel staffs were all accomodating. The elegant vintage look is perfect if you are looking for a solemn place to stay. One of the best hotels.

Room Tip: Upper villa is the best

The grass area just out of view of the pool area us a nice touch. Bar area next to pool where morning breakfast was ready before our long day of sight seeing and travel was just right. Location is just off main highway from airport

The Dolce Vita offers an oasis of calm in what is the pandemonium of developing Puerto Princesa. The hotel buildings are comfortable and tastefully decorated with the main area laid out in a horseshoe shape with the pool, restaurant and bar in the centre.
Rooms were clean and adequate and breakfast very good.
Service was very friendly and caring. Good value for money.

The only downside is the location which is down a quieter side street off the main road out of town and towards the main town. It's not too far to the new Robinson mall or the main town area (10 - 15min in a trycycle) but if you want to walk anywhere you are faced with substantial road works and some mud/some puddles on the side street. There are some basic eateries on the side street, but if you want anything more upmarket you have to make a journey.
