    Situated to the north of the town. Ideal to get to the bus terminal in the morning really only 10 mins by van supplied by the hotel. Nice hotel, only downside being the size of the rooms (bit small) and as always in Philippines the bathroom a bit aged. Good for a stay over. The staff very good.

    It was our first time in Puerto Princesa and we were very satisfied with their service specially the staff which were very accommodating and nice. I had several requests because I was preparing a surprise and they helped me with it.I recommend this place if anyone wants to visit Puerto Princesa. It's quite far from the city proper but not to worry because they have a service that will pick you up from the airport and they can help you call a driver to bring u around the city.

    I loved my stay! Hotel is not located in the main street so it's quiet. Ambiance allows you to relax. Although the hotel is not on the main street, they provide a van back and forth to the main street which gives customers ease in going around. They also suggest and book you in the popular restaurants of the Puerto Princesa. Moreover, the staff are very friendly and accommodating of our requests. Customer service is great!

    Relax ”

    We loved our stay at Palo Alto. Don’t be worried as you get driven into the backstreets that seem far away from town, this place is it’s own little sanctuary and you will never want to leave. The pool area is lovely and clean. The room we were in was very spacious and clean. We didn’t have the breakfast as we are vegan but everyone morning we had our own cereal and soy milk and the girls would bring us out a massive plate of delicious fresh fruit. When we wanted to head into the town they would call a tricycle for us and they also have a free van that drops you into town at 6pm and picks you up at 9pm at a certain time. Tricycle cost no more then P120-150 each way and all the guys were lovely and would wait for you to have dinner and take you home or make extra stops on the journey for you to look at markets etc. Palo Alto will also help you organize tours, we did the firefly tour and the underground river tour, love both! Couldn’t recommend this place more, we were sad to leave!

    Close to Nature”

    Renovations are ongoing but I didn't notice it since they only work from 8am-5pm because I'm usually out on a day tour. PROS: Location- it's away from traffic and you'll hear birds chirping and trees rustling in the wind; Staff- accommodating and courteous; Food- they have the best brewed coffee and their beef tapa is delicious; Transfers- they provide shuttle service to Rizal Ave at 6pm and going back at 9pm; Decor- I love how they used the wood around the property from floors to the railings. CONS: Location- it's 15 minutes from Rizal Ave. where the restaurants are and tricycle can charge from P100-P150 going back to the property; Salakot Restaurant is not open for dinner unless requested so you have to go out to eat; Bed bugs- I got bitten by bed bugs.. I would come back if they fix the bed bug problem.

    Pocket of paradise in the jungle”

    GF and I had a really nice stay here for a night. The AC was good. The beds here are softer than most Filipino hotels, and the room was much larger than expected. 3 queen size beds and a pull-out couch for 2 people! We were able to spread out to say the least. The bathroom was smaller with poor lighting, but great hot water, with a nice shower area. Their breakfast was complimentary and was pretty tasty. The rest of the menu was more questionable, with some items being more tasty than others, but nothing made us ill. The staff was friendly and helpful during our stay, as is typical in service-oriented Philippines, and also picked us up from the airport for free They were building a new facility on-site, so there was some noise during the day, but it didn't affect our stay as our building was in another area of the compound. We were in Puerta Princessa for the underground river tour and ziplining primarily, so this hotel served our needs as a place to sleep and store our belongings.

    Great Stay!”

    We had an amazing stay here. The staff were very accommodating and helpful. The place was beautiful. Just a few things: 1.) Power outages meant using power generators. That also meant no cable TV. 2.) Mosquitoes are around early morning and evening. 3.) The pool was not clean but it was not too dirty. There was a net supposedly to keep the leaves from falling into the water. But they still managed through. Other than that, we definitely enjoyed our stay. The free shuttle was awesome. All our needs were attended to.

    Hotel architecture and ambience

    The place is hidden in Puerto Princesca suburbia and it can be hard to get a tricycle. I would of rated this place higher but out room was tiny. Not enough room for a table or get your luggage out of the way. The beds had foam mattresses and the pillows had no firmness. The outside area is attractive but is let down by the poor rooms.

    Great b&b”

    Hotel finishings were fantastic, all recycled wood. Very relaxed, soothing ambiance. Staff were very courteous & helpful.

    We stayed at the Palo Alto b&b for one night this week. I read about it in a friend's blog, she mentioned that the whole place is made from wood & that it is a sight to see in itself. My friend was right. I loved the architecture of the b&b, you feel like you are in a giant tree house. I can imagine kids having fun in this place, running around & exploring the hallways & staircases. We got welcome drinks, malunggay juice, upon check in & was given little notes as to the different WiFi codes, map + address, & hotel info. The room we had was very basic, but for a 2-star place, it was well suitable. The bathroom was not too cramped & even the ceiling in the hotel room was made of indigenous materials. We did not leave the hotel until check out the next day, & had all our meals at their resident restaurant "Salakot" (it means ladle in Tagalog, I think); the food wasn't fantastic but it wasn't bad either. I ordered spaghetti bolognese for dinner & though very meaty, lacked the taste of the tomato sauce. A bit of tweaking with the recipe will do the trick, I reckon,. Also, they have a shuttle van that picks you up from the airport to the b&b area, it's quite a drive but when you get there it's worth it -- the architecture is wonderful, really. They do need to invest on some mosquito repellants.

    Comfortable rooms, great service, quite

    Palo Alto is a great location to start or to end your travels on Palawan. The place is in a quite sub-urban area of PP, but still very centrally located. The service is excellent and rooms (we had the family room with loft) comfortable. The staff does everything to make you feel at home and the free shuttle service makes travelling even more easy. We loved it!

    We loved our stay at Palo Alto. Don’t be worried as you get driven into the backstreets that seem far away from town, this place is it’s own little sanctuary and you will never want to leave. The pool area is lovely and clean. The room we were in was very spacious and clean. We didn’t have the breakfast as we are vegan but everyone morning we had our own cereal and soy milk and the girls would bring us out a massive plate of delicious fresh fruit. When we wanted to head into the town they would call a tricycle for us and they also have a free van that drops you into town at 6pm and picks you up at 9pm at a certain time. Tricycle cost no more then P120-150 each way and all the guys were lovely and would wait for you to have dinner and take you home or make extra stops on the journey for you to look at markets etc. Palo Alto will also help you organize tours, we did the firefly tour and the underground river tour, love both! Couldn’t recommend this place more, we were sad to leave!

    Perfect Staycation”

    My friends and I stayed here after our trip to El Nido and it was the perfect place to unwind after a tiring 2 days full of island hopping. The pool area was relaxing, rooms were very cozy, the food was affordable and the staff were very accommodating. I highly recommend this place.

    Close to Nature”

    Renovations are ongoing but I didn't notice it since they only work from 8am-5pm because I'm usually out on a day tour. PROS: Location- it's away from traffic and you'll hear birds chirping and trees rustling in the wind; Staff- accommodating and courteous; Food- they have the best brewed coffee and their beef tapa is delicious; Transfers- they provide shuttle service to Rizal Ave at 6pm and going back at 9pm; Decor- I love how they used the wood around the property from floors to the railings. CONS: Location- it's 15 minutes from Rizal Ave. where the restaurants are and tricycle can charge from P100-P150 going back to the property; Salakot Restaurant is not open for dinner unless requested so you have to go out to eat; Bed bugs- I got bitten by bed bugs.. I would come back if they fix the bed bug problem.

    Pocket of paradise in the jungle”

    GF and I had a really nice stay here for a night. The AC was good. The beds here are softer than most Filipino hotels, and the room was much larger than expected. 3 queen size beds and a pull-out couch for 2 people! We were able to spread out to say the least. The bathroom was smaller with poor lighting, but great hot water, with a nice shower area. Their breakfast was complimentary and was pretty tasty. The rest of the menu was more questionable, with some items being more tasty than others, but nothing made us ill. The staff was friendly and helpful during our stay, as is typical in service-oriented Philippines, and also picked us up from the airport for free They were building a new facility on-site, so there was some noise during the day, but it didn't affect our stay as our building was in another area of the compound. We were in Puerta Princessa for the underground river tour and ziplining primarily, so this hotel served our needs as a place to sleep and store our belongings.

    Great Stay!”

    We had an amazing stay here. The staff were very accommodating and helpful. The place was beautiful. Just a few things: 1.) Power outages meant using power generators. That also meant no cable TV. 2.) Mosquitoes are around early morning and evening. 3.) The pool was not clean but it was not too dirty. There was a net supposedly to keep the leaves from falling into the water. But they still managed through. Other than that, we definitely enjoyed our stay. The free shuttle was awesome. All our needs were attended to.

    Quiet in puerto princesa”

    Location, staff

    We wanted a quiet place away from puerto traffic and Palo Alto delivered it. The hotel is in a lush garden and very green. They offer a transport to the city at dinner time and help with restaurant reservation. The staff is excelent and helps with everything.

    Fair”

    Hotel architecture and ambience

    The place is hidden in Puerto Princesca suburbia and it can be hard to get a tricycle. I would of rated this place higher but out room was tiny. Not enough room for a table or get your luggage out of the way. The beds had foam mattresses and the pillows had no firmness. The outside area is attractive but is let down by the poor rooms.

    Great b&b”

    Hotel finishings were fantastic, all recycled wood. Very relaxed, soothing ambiance. Staff were very courteous & helpful.

    We stayed at the Palo Alto b&b for one night this week. I read about it in a friend's blog, she mentioned that the whole place is made from wood & that it is a sight to see in itself. My friend was right. I loved the architecture of the b&b, you feel like you are in a giant tree house. I can imagine kids having fun in this place, running around & exploring the hallways & staircases. We got welcome drinks, malunggay juice, upon check in & was given little notes as to the different WiFi codes, map + address, & hotel info. The room we had was very basic, but for a 2-star place, it was well suitable. The bathroom was not too cramped & even the ceiling in the hotel room was made of indigenous materials. We did not leave the hotel until check out the next day, & had all our meals at their resident restaurant "Salakot" (it means ladle in Tagalog, I think); the food wasn't fantastic but it wasn't bad either. I ordered spaghetti bolognese for dinner & though very meaty, lacked the taste of the tomato sauce. A bit of tweaking with the recipe will do the trick, I reckon,. Also, they have a shuttle van that picks you up from the airport to the b&b area, it's quite a drive but when you get there it's worth it -- the architecture is wonderful, really. They do need to invest on some mosquito repellants.

    Lovely quite place to start your travels at Palawa”

    Comfortable rooms, great service, quite

    Palo Alto is a great location to start or to end your travels on Palawan. The place is in a quite sub-urban area of PP, but still very centrally located. The service is excellent and rooms (we had the family room with loft) comfortable. The staff does everything to make you feel at home and the free shuttle service makes travelling even more easy. We loved it!
