“Trying to be upscale but really isn't ”
Reviewed April 17, 2017 via mobile

This is a wannabe upscale resort that isn't up to par with international standards. Sure it is nicely located with an artificial beach (still remains to incomplete), pool area and restaurant. However it is rather isolated and seems unfinished and it isn't pretty in the way you would expect of a modern high end resort.

Stayed April 2017, traveled with friends

Dear ChristianFrantz,

Thank you for your review. As of the moment, our beach is undergoing a nourishment program in order for our guests to have a more pleasurable swimming experience in the future.

We will be sure to announce in our social media channels once our beach nourishment is complete. It is our aim to provide a relaxing stay to our guests, and we are sincerely grateful for your patience while we are fulfilling our resort developments.

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.
