nice and quiet location with very attentive staff
attentive staff, quiet elocation, pure nature
The staff are very helpfull in all kind of questions / needs. It is a bit outside of the city but with 30 minutes advance staff organized an tricycle and for 150 pesos and we were in around 20 minutes in the city. The water at the beach is very low. The hut is small and pure but usefull for a short stay. They whole area is very quiet.

shocking and we were not expecting this
only the good service of the staff
We book 3 nights & 4 days but we stayed only 1 night, we had found a Hotel in the City which fits to us, especially the comfort. Bahay Kubo was very far & the only Transportation was the tricycle.

Beautiful scenery and extremely friendly staff
The beach, the friendly and helpful staff and the secluded location.
The cabins we stayed in were clean and comfortable. The staff were extremely friendly and very helpful in booking tours/activities. The hotel is located 20 mins from the city centre so the location is very secluded and peaceful but it is only a short and cheap tricycle ride to Puerto Princesa. I would highly recommend this hotel, both me and my girlfriend had a wonderful week here over the Christmas period.

Dissapointing Booking Experience
Kind hotel manager
This is my worst experience booking with Agoda. Firstly the hotel is not well represented with the photos displayed. The surrounding is not that good, and the room is too small to be comfortable (no wonder they don't put any photo of the room). Another thing is the location is more remote than what I imagined. And the most dissapointing fact is that I could have rented the room on a much cheaper rate compared to what I paid through Agoda (it was around 50% more expensive). One thing that redeemed this inn is the manager who is very kind.

Awesome Experience!
Staff, food and unique setting/location
First of all, i would love to give the hotel/office manager highest commendation for her gracious nature and attention to the guests' needs.. Secondly, the unique huts were a definite adjustment, but grew on me every day. The location is a great opportunity to experience filipino food and culture.. I WILL RETURN AGAIN!

Wonderful place to lay on the sun
Friendly stuff and good beach far from the crowds
Wonderful place far from the crowds - you have absolutely no business there, except of lying on the beach. And that is the thing, why I love this place. Also there are extremely friendly stuff there - I thanks them for breakfasts on the beach in time I've asked for, I thanks them for arranging taxis for me and for meeting me in airport when my flight was delayed. Very good beach with practically no people on it. When I was there, they were building the bridge in the garden and the lawn in the yard near cabanas. That is why I marked "Hotel Condition/Cleanliness" as 4 stars, not 5. I believe, that in 2-3 months they finish the works and all the garden and yard will be excellent. In any way: This hotel is an excellent value for your money. If I return to Palawan I will stay in this hotel again.
