Great place, amazing staff
Amazing place, we stayed there as a couple and the staff really went out of their way to accommodate us and make sure we were well taken care of. The Jacuzzi was great relaxation after a long day. They had a free foot massage upon arrival which was also a nice treat. They graciously provided a free van to our next location as well, which was a nice surprise. We will definitely be returning before we leave the Phillipines. They met and exceeded all our expectations.

Wow! Beautiful boutique hotel in a quite part of Puerta Princessa. Only a 3-5 min tuk tuk ride to the heart of town. The staff is amazing. I mean amazing. You must get a Balai Massage. Wow!!!! Rooms and bed are very nice and newly furnished. I’d recommend this place to anyone and everyone. You surely will not be disappointed. Thanks staff! You made our stay in PP truly unforgettable!
