Gay friendly hotel that is not centrally located

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed May 26, 2019
My friend and I stayed 2 nights in this Hotel. I somehow missed it was gay oriented hotel but even as a heterosexual I encountered no issues whatsoever, just missing female guests being around. It is a small resort with pool, check in/out hassle free. They organized for us trip to Sabang and also private transport to el Nido. Smoking just outside of hotel, breakfast small and basic, room huge, bed comfy, didn´t have a chance to take a dip in their pool. Location is somewhat awkward, there´s not too much around the resort and you should take a tricycle - very cheap though.

Lovely little hotel a bit outside the City-center of Puerto Princesa

Stayed here 6 nights early April 2019 in a superior room at the 1. Floor. The room was clean and nice.

It’s a 30 min walk or 70php tricycle-ride from PP city center

The staff were very service-minded

There is a small swimming pool with some sun beds. We didn’t have problems getting place when needed.

Breakfast is menu-set-style. Fine but not special.

Good WiFi all over the hotel

Value for money

After staying here we went on a live aboard-trip. When returning from this we needed transport from PP to El Nido. We book transport via the hotel before leaving, and when not knowing when we would return they offered that we could come back, use the pool and have a shower before the transport. No service charged.

Great place, great service

Room tip: If possible 1st floor

Upon arriving to the hotel after driving down a bumpy deserted road, thinking to myself... this place is going to suck. I saw such a nice resort on a road mixed within fallen down shacks and empty lots. The resort was clean and fresh with a pleasant hotel staff. The photos of the room online don't really give a good description of this resort. I think its actually better than the photos which is a first. For the price I would recommend this hotel but in general I would not recommend staying in Puerto Princesa as there really isn't much to do.

Our first time to visit Puerto Princesa and we are not expecting so much but amazingly this hotel exceeded our expectations.

We checked-in late, but we are deeply touched by the warm welcome of the staff (Andrea and Jeff). They also accommodate our last minute requests. The massage room service was undeniably great and worth the price. The room is spacious and very clean. I love the idea that the wash area, toilet and shower are separated. So cozy and absolutely clean. The AC and fan is very cold (I love it!) plus the wifi is working well since we got the chance to send messages via email/whatsapp/messenger.

They also manage to book us for the Firely viewing and City tour. Breakfast is so nice, we enjoyed the quiet moments while having breakfast before going the city your.

For sure, we will come back to this awesome place. Highly recommended! Thanks Andrea, you are such a darling! ❤️ Thank you for your great service. Keep it up! 🤩

The staff are all extremely welcoming and go out of their way to help you if you have any questions, will quickly order you a tricycle, or offer to call restaurant in the area to check if they are open.
Breakfast is simple, eggs, fruit, toast but is filling enough. Through out the day staff will bring round filtered jugs of water while you sunbathe.
The rooms are large and clean with good air conditioning and a fan. A very nice touch is they have an extra battery powered fan which is useful for the power cuts on Palawan.
Unfortunately the evening before we were due to get an early bus up to El Nido, I got food poisoning from another restaurant. The staff at the hotel could not be more helpful, allowing my party to stay in our room (without charging any extra) and organised a private bus for us which left later in the afternoon.
The owner even gave us his card and told us to call him if we had any problems! Amazing little hotel.

On the back of some excellent reviews we booked a three night stay. The decision was the right one. Although off the beaten track it oozes charm and character and is small enough to allow the staff to give you a personalised stay. And the staff tick every box. Led by an affable gentleman by the name of Enriqo all will give their all to make your stay memorable. Book excursions with them in the confidence knowing they will be punctual and cost effective.
All in all a first class package.
