          Stayed 2 nights in July 2018

          Stayed in a Beach Villa with Pool, 2 nights, very disappointed.”

          Booked 2 nights in a Beach Villa with private pool. This was what we thought the best accommodation for us while in Narra, as we went there to buy a property. The photos in the Agoda website look lovely, but very deceiving, the place was built in the 80,s and the photos were accurate possibly at the time of opening. The long story short is it is extremely expensive for what you will get in reality. The property has been sadly neglected, poor to nil maintenance, dirty mouldy villa with paint pealing due to neglect. Hot water to hand basin but not to shower in ensuite, pathetic, honestly check out for yourself before booking, dont make the same mistake as us and book according to the nice photos, they are very misleading. Complimentary breakfast was a joke, only ate there for breakfast as it was included in the package. Disappointing all round i honestly cannot recommend staying at this property to anyone, just book in good accomodation in the city, Puerto Princessa and drive to Narra.

          Quiet Retreat”

          This place is a good place to consider when you want a quite retreat from the usual tourist areas and tours. They have villas with you own small pool overlooking the beach. It is a but far from the main road but you are there to enjoy the quiet anyway. They have a spa and very good therapists too. But do tell them to put down the curtains because of the mosquitoes while having a massage.

          For The Family”

          The resort is truly for families on vacation. They have enough pools and beach front to accommodate a lot of people. Food was good and safe. The staff are friendly and helpful. Our rooms are clean though rather sparse compared to what we are usually used to. Our aircon needed to be serviced because it was very noisy. But over-all it is a well-maintained resort. We did research on the flora of Palawan, and their location, Narra was a good jump-off point.

          Over priced”

          Tatty and well worn. The place in general is very shabby and worn. The price for a pool villa is out of all context with the property. The villa is 3/10 but I must say the pool was 8/10.but with a price tag of 10,000 php, £145, $200 us, it is crazy. The breakfast was very small and for a hotel saying 2 eggs any style and then not knowing what poached eggs are says it all. The saving grace was that as with all Philippine hotels the staff were great.

          Poor Value”

          Beautiful Gardens

          Stayed in a standard room, as a treat after backpacking down from El Nido. As seasoned travellers, we're happy to stay in cheap rooms when backpacking but also are familiar with luxury hotels. Crystal Paradise was a serious disappointment -very glad we only went for a standard room. Expect nothing more than 2* service and facilities. Its only saving grace is the hotel's beautiful grounds with numerous palm trees and tropical flowers, and hammocks strung between them - all with a view of the ocean. The beach is non-existent - a narrow strip of brown sand. The reception and dining area is open air, in serious need of renovation. Breathtaking for all the wrong reasons. The restaurant's centrepiece fishtank was filthy, with flies interrupting our breakfast in the mornings. We avoided the restaurant for lunch/dinner. The level of english amongst most staff was poor. The spa was unable to offer some of its treatments, despite spa staff admitting they'd run out of supplies a while ago- they simply hadn't bothered to restock. What was most galling was the feeling that we were being ripped off at every turn, just because we were tourists. A boat trip out to the Turtle Sanctuary on Isla Arena . We did the same trip ourselves (on a better boat than our fellow hotel guests) . Tricyles to town , we did one way trips ourselves . We understand that luxury hotels charge large amounts for services they provide, it is to be expected. But at a resort where no added value is to be had at all, we found this unacceptable. If you stay here, know that it is a rundown resort, and pay accordingly. We would not recommend this place.
