A terrible experience”
We definitely would NOT recommend this so called 'Resort' to anybody. The reception, staff (owners), cleanliness and facilities were a disgrace and totally unacceptable. We decided not to stay at this accommodation and had to find another hotel around 9 pm that evening.

Disappointed ”
It's quiet and right on the beach.
I had booked 3 nights there and had to give my flight details as the website said they would provide transfers, they didn't even know I was coming or for how long, let alone provide a transfer. No TV in the room, unreliable (free) WiFi available, but only in the dining area. No one was in the main building, I had to walk around to the back to find someone, and it seemed like there were no other guests at all (This was low season). In the end I chose not to stay. If you want a quiet stay then this might be better suited to you, or maybe this resort fares better in peak season.

Isolated and quiet place beside the beach”
Spend time watching the sunrise beside the beach is wonderful, far away from the crowds, good place for photoshoots, and a very helpful staff
The place is very isolated and very quiet. Not much to see, only that they have a very beautiful beach which we had some time to spend in the morning to watch the sunrises and a photoshoot session.Our time there was not long due to time constraints, but the experience in staying such hotel was worth it. We had stayed in the Ranch Style room. The staff also helpful and had helped us to flag down a van to take us to our next stop. Don't freak out if you saw the 'property for sale' sign next to the entrance, we checked with the staff and they said they still receiving guests. The room was also clean. Got no phone line, wifi, and tv. Only you and nature. Sleep through the night with the sound of the beach and mooing cows in the morning to wake you up.

TERRIBLE LOCATION”
The owner was very helpful in arranging transport. The property was well kept, and it is good value for the money paid.
Overall the stay was decent. The location is terrible and in the middle of nowhere. You have to pay 1500-2000 pesos to arrange a car to go anywhere. The food at the restaurant you will inevitably be stuck eating at is not very fresh and incredibly overpriced. Also, be prepared to wait 40-70 minutes for food.

It was ok”
Beach front, quiet surrounding, friendly staffs.
We stayed 3D/2N and our overall stay is okay. The resort is atleast an hour away from the airport but the hotel staff could book a van to pick you up (cost Php2000 one way). It's beach front and most of the time you can have the beach for yourself as not alot of guests swim (or might be swimming at different time of the day). Beach sand is fine although not white, more like beige/grey, and the sea shore is shallow so you can walk quite a distance in to the sea. They can arrange for you to go on island hopping for 1 full day which costs Php2000/person, lunch included and a "tour guide". The "tour guide" apparently is just there to assist you cook lunch, get you a cottage, rent goggles for you, etc., and not so much telling you interesting things about the place, which i thought what a tour guide is. Going island hopping was fun as the islands we went to got white sand, and clear water so you can snorkel. But this made me realise i should have just booked the resort in that island instead of booking Villa Leonora. They can also arrange for a van to take you to Palawan Underground River which is a great and fun trip, thanks to the oarsman rowing our boat on the river. The underground river trip also cost Php2000/person. Perhaps what i disliked the most in this resort is the waiting time for food to be served. There was one night it took over an hour for our dinner to be served so had to pass the time playing billiards. We already finished drinking our coke which we ordered with our dinner, and a couple of bottles of beer and dinner was still not served! I had to go to the counter several times to follow up, and when it was finally served the food wasn't even worth the wait.

The middle of nowhere.”
The staff were great, it's right on the beach and its in a very quiet location.
I really enjoyed my stay here but it is not the kind of place you'd go if you're after a holiday for bars/clubs and nightlife. If you're after a holiday to get away from it all, this is the place.

The hotel is located in the middle of NOWHERE!”
If you like total seclusion away from civilization, this is the place for you.
Since Villa Leonora was a neighbouring hotel, we found it senseless to even ponder of checking in. We left the area the same day we arrived in it and preceded to Puerto Prinsesa Town proper where all kinds of hotels particularly nice, cost efficient accommodation was always available. In addition, Puerto Prinsesa Town Proper is easily accessible to Honda Bay and Underground River .

Beach location
All rooms are only a few yards from a major road, so very noisy. As this hotel is so remote you are totally dependent on the hotel. Unfortunately this hotel didn't deliver. The service was extremely poor and as there was nowhere else to eat or drink prices were very high. As a guide a single Bacardi and coke was £9.00. We had payed for 3 nights but left after only 2.

Great option in Palawan”
Arranged everything you would want, beautiful location, and beautiful grounds
We just finished up our four night stay at the Villa Leonora - and we had a blast. As I looked at different places in Palawan, I was struck by how divided the reviews, seemed to be on this property. Now that I've stayed there, I think I understand what's driving that to some degree, and as much as to report our stay, I'd like to address some of the complaints that have been lodged by some other reviewers. DO: Stay at the Villa Leonora if you want an out-of-the-way place to stay while you're in Palawan. Stay in the air conditioned rooms, not the fan rooms. Expect that the property is a good ways (an hour plus) out of Puerto Princesa - so if it's nightlife you are looking for, do find somewhere else. Tell the staff what you want. Room cleaned? Breakfast at a certain time? Day trips to make? Just let the folks know, and they will be all over it. Understand that the road is not far away, and there's no way to avoid hearing it. At this point on the island you have the road and you have the ocean, and there's not much that separates the two. We were so exhausted after every day, you could have run a semi truck by our beds and we wouldn't have heard it. But it's there. The resort in general is so quiet - but the road prevents it from being silent - so just be prepared. Know that there aren't TVs in the rooms and there isn't WIFI either. But there is WIFI in the restaurant area. Appreciate that staff is an authentic character. A happy-go-lucky guy who is fun to hang out with, but a human being like all of the rest of us. That means there will be times he might rub a person the wrong way. But his is a good guy - and the world needs good guys.

Can't be better than what we got. perfect place. ”
nice people, good care for the client.
lovely place, lovely people, I was shock when i met him as i was worried about the comment i read before i go specially the weird stories about the owner which is not true, the owner is very helpful, very nice, we reach late, but he still wake up just to come and great us, we had no plans or tours, but he still manage to get us that and made us busy with seeing the nice nature over there, very relaxing place, very nice staff, it is out standing the way we were treated, honestly I'm very difficult to satisfy but they have delighted us, prices of his tours was the cheapest compare of what we got by other agencies even we did not have any booking, I have been in many places in Asia, and i loved this place, i highly highly highly recommend this nice resort away from the city, pollution and the noise. i wish i had time to stay longer, prices are acceptable,it is even more expensive in other hotels and resorts as i have been in other hotels within Philippines in my last holiday. and for sure I'm going back there.

So close to the beach !
Pretty place easy to find and right on the Highway so easy to be dropped in or leaving. Room confrtable and spacious. Arthur (landlord) gave us a warm welcome even at midnight ! Only bad point was the breakfast little expensive and not fresh and the highway a bit noisy. Didn't try any tour around unfortunately but beach is slowly gradually going deeper so it might be perfect with children.

This is the worst place I've ever stayed”
The sea is next to it
this is not a resort, it is a sub-1 star hotel, 45 mins away from honda bay and in the middle of nowhere. there is nothing to do in the evening apart from drink the expensive alcohol and wait hours on end for your over-priced meal to arrive in the restaurant, all whilst being bitten to shreds by the insects from the beach and rainforest. the owner over charges for everything, including tours and the worst part - he claims his prices are the cheapest when a quick look at the internet proves they are way beyond what anyone else on the whole island is charging. the owner seems to use the line "i am english etc" to try to win over confidence when questioning him on prices/other bad practices. the owner drank regularly and generally made a nuisance of himself, coming over while we were trying to relax and speaking loudly and irritating us. rooms were basic, they even had holes in the floor and walls so insects could get in. got bitten each night about 2-3 times, despite wearing full pyjamas and a bed sheet. also, there is no hot water and you are not allowed to put toilet paper in the toilet - it goes in an uncovered bin. so much more to say on this hotel but bottom line do not stay here if you want to enjoy your time in palawan!!
