About Royal Oberoi Resort Hotel

Not ever coming back
The place was quite far from the city of Puerto Princesa and the though the rooms looked great and the double bed was competitive, what led me down was the additional bed. We were a family of five and the additional bed was awful. Even I would not let our dog sleep in such a cheap folding bed. Though the place was clean, the water supply was scarce in the later part of the day. The staff was nice, it was just that we felt that we did not get our money's worth with the facilities and amenities. I would not recommend this to families who exert effort in saving up for a slightly luxurious vacation just to avoid any disappointments.

Lovely Pool
The pool is large and has a great swim up bar. It is quite far from anywhere, so you do need to get a trike if you are going out. The grounds are nice, with lots of greenery, and the breakfast restaurant is really lovely. The staff were helpful with making phone calls and welcomed us kindly. The rooms are basic, but comfortable. I would have liked a larger bathroom. The price is about reasonable, although their tours are a bit more expensive than if you book your own. They should put free water in the room, rather than making you pay for it. The food in the restaurant is lovely, but can take a long time to arrive, so make sure you plan that into your timing. We enjoyed our time here and would come back.

out of the way but great place with great people
It is the high season in Palawan and not many places are still available. So I was very worry when the Oberoi looked empty. What a nice surprise when arriving the place... It is somewhat far and not in the center, it is somewhat old and been renovated maybe not to the most high expectation but it is great place. First the friendly people - starting from airport pick-up, reception, handle of tour booking and private van, great swim-pool that make you wish to stay all day in there. Breakfast is small as they have very few rooms so can not have buffet. Wifi is need great improvement!!!! It is not strong enough in the rooms.

Very enjoyable stay
I stayed at the Royal Oberoi hotel at both the beginning and the end of my trip to Palawan. The hotel is out of the main town of Puerto Princessa and is just off the main road. It is very secluded and peaceful yet only a 15 minute drive from the airport. It has a lovely huge pool with poolside bar and a restaurant serving good food. Complimentary breakfast was included.. The room was spacious with one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept on in any hotel I have been to. Special mention must go to Lanni on reception who was super helpful and simply could not do enough to make my stay as stress free as possible. Thank you Lanni for all your help. I would definitely stay at the Royal Oberoi Hotel again and would not hesitate in recommending it.
