Astoria Palawan
Ranked #9 of 50 Hotels in Puerto Princesa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 11, 2017

Best part is the hotel room given us; located at the 2nd floor at the building behind the reception area. This is a Club Astoria entitlement of 1 bed room suite but we're given 2 adjoining studio suites so we have 3 beds in total. It was more than enough space for our group of 4. Rooms are very clean when we arrived. The only complain we have are the tissue rolls & facial napkins in the bathroom were already used & not new (nit picking here). I thought this property has a nice lay out, best of the other properties we've been (Ortigas, Current Boracay, & Bohol). The only downside is its location, it is about 60 kms away from the city & the shuttle service offered (@PhP2,700/way) is quite pricey. We opted to rent a car in Puerto Princesa for 3 days & it worked well for us. This property is about 1+ hour away from Sabang (jump off point for PPUR tour & the wharf for the Honda Bay tour). Food prices is reasonable but will be happier if they have more options in their buffet. Staff is great.

Room Tip: rent a car to get here.. better than the hotel shuttle service

Great Resort for families. "Very Very" friendly staff, wonderful amenities-enjoyed nightly ping pong and billiards, loved the waterpark, infiniti pool, and very classy restaurant with good ala carte selections and tasty and beautiful buffet. Theres so much more to do but we had very little time so hoping to be able to come back next year, "God willing".
Cant say enough about this resort but wanted to give a big shoutout to "Raffy Legaspi" for the EXCELLENT SERVICE. My family made lasting memories of Astoria and Palawan. Thank you so much!!!

Loved the buffet selection and the quality of food. Glad there's this option in Palawan. Going up north, it's nice to stop over at the newly opened restaurant (Waterpark), though a bit pricey per person, but the food selection is good. :-)

We were a group of 10 from Minnesota. We spent 3 wonderful days at the Astoria. The rooms are beautiful and clean. The staff is over the top friendly. We HIGHLY recommend this resort to anyone. The beach was under construction so we did not spend much time there but did enjoy the infinity pool.

Reservations: Fast via website booking

Location: An hour from city proper.

Room (Two-bedroom suite/villa): modern design; very spacious rooms and bathrooms (bedroom 1 has 2 cubicles for toilet and shower and a separate bathtub; bedroom 2 has bathtub with shower and toilet plus own mini kitchen with microwave,sink, etc); has a mini sala with daybed; has dining table; and had mini kitchen with induction cooker, refrigerator, sink, pot and pan, set of utensils, chopping board. In short, the villa is your own beach house.

Amenities: Pool is awesome. Has mini golf and playgrounds in front of the beach and beside the mini golf, free use of kayak and bicycles. The resort has standby volleyball net in placed. The waterpark is approximately 5 minutes from resort (check if resort rates are inclusive of entrance to waterpark).

Staff: Attentive to needs but somewhat understaffed in room service area (had to ask for additional towels 4 times before having it sent in villa). Pool attendants are friendly and prompt.

Food: Buffet breakfast was a let down- don't have the usual breakfast staple like longanisa, tocino, dried fish, instead served fried chicken, mixed vegetables, pork adobo; but have good choice of breads and spreads. Room service food was right on time and delivered hot.

Beach: Resort is next to the sea but there is no "real shore" like in other beaches. My kids got disappointed 'cause they cannot make "sandcastles". The "sand" looks like mud and some area has a foul smell.

Overall: This is a great resort that offers above average accommodation. The resort amenities make up for the lack of a real "beach." The resort is also undergoing expansion and construction in some areas.

TIP: If you're going to avail of a two-bedroom villa, it's also good to bring some baon with you to save money as you can cook in your villa. There are also stores located just across the entrance of the resort to buy your needs, which we did.
