What struck me the most is how genuinely friendly the staff is. This is a place where everyone gets special treatment (without the fake "hello, ma'am/sir" niceties) and it is generally a good place to be relax (think hammocks and chirping birds).
It's a 15-minute drive from the airport, which is just far enough from the "busy" goings-on on the main streets. The resort has a van that will take you to the town any time of the day, free of charge. They serve hearty all-day breakfast meals and there's free refreshments in the dining area.
Overall an excellent stay and would definitely book another stay if I ever find myself in PP again.
If you're on a budget, this isn't a bad hotel. Although the hotel is somewhat run down, with old furniture and appliances in the rooms, it's nevertheless fairly clean, the staff are friendly and helpful, and it's in a good location (close enough for a quick trip into town, but far enough away from the main road for relative peace and quiet). The beds are reasonably comfortable, the air conditioning works (though it cools slowly), and there are actually some nice common areas, not to mention a half-decent restaurant on-site. Getting into town from here is easy, as there are always tricycles at the entrance waiting for fares (p40-p50, depending on how far you want to go). As long as you're not expecting a resort-like experience, this hotel isn't a bad choice if you're on a budget.
Hotel is slightly out of town but an excellent value. The only drawback is the availability of transportation out of the hotel location after dark. You can't walk to the main road because the rain frequently washes out the dirt road turning it to mud and impassable pools of water. The tricycles rarely have a reason to pass by the hotel and if they do they are full of passangers. The hotel was kind enough to provide free transportation on occasion but this was a little limiting. The have a beautiful pool, the gardens are well mainatined. The managment is solid and were able to arrange very good tours to the local sights. I would stay there again and would reccomend the location to travelers looking for a great value.
Great place to stay when we arrived in Palawan. Close to everything and very relaxed, hospitable hosts. Family owned and run, this is a warm and comfortable place with clean and new rooms. We will definitely be coming back here to visit our new friends and enjoy their beautifully built guesthouse. Internet was fast and we enjoyed the view from the veranda while checking in with family on skype. Informative and friendly staff helped us to plan the activities and restaurants to go to. I would recommend this guesthouse to all types of travelers. We extended our stay because we were being taken such good care off by everyone there.
