We booked a double bedroom. It was big with a very comfortable bed. Table with a couple of chairs in the bedroom. Hot water and good WiFi connection, something that is very hard to find in Palawan. Breakfast included. Very nice common areas with big and comfy sofas; hammocks outside. Very close to the center and in a walking distance...

Average guesthouse. Nice lounge, room was clean. But there is one big and very common problem in Philippines: old Aircon, probably not very clean inside. Dear staff, you should open window time to time and ventilate the room because there's really bad smell. Basic breakfast, typical for this country but it's served in 20-30 minutes from time of order (previously...

The room was ok for the price. Try to check the rooms available first especially the bathrooms. If your tour was canceled, they will immediately inform you and rebook you if you want. The breakfast longganisa was great.

Very helpful and accommodating staff. Big and clean rooms, perfect for groups and families. Close to a number of tourist attractions. Yummy breakfast with a lot of food choices to choose from. The only downside here is that the gates close at 8pm and the buzzer is not functioning well. We had to call the staff verbally to get their...

Spent a couple of nights at this place for the convenience. Reception was friendly, room clean and spacious. Bathroom door needed urgent repair.The staff was or tired or new on the job. Breakfast was really poor. No fruit, pancake or eggs and 2 toasts. One morning there even were no eggs although there are enough schops in the neighbourhood

The toilet wasn't clean and the sink in the bathroom was coming off the wall. The glasses and cutlery at the breakfast were not clean. They offered us transport to el nido voor 700php. We had already arranged transport at 500php (which is the normal price) so luckily we could not be fooled.

We stayed there for 2 nights, the room is big and clean, staff are nice and accommodating. One even woke up at 4 am at our request to prepare breakfast for us because we wanted to catch the first bus to El Nido. I was also able to book underground river tour with them at a better rate than most...

I have spent only one night in this hotel. The shower had no pressure at all and I quite struggled to take a proper shower. I went out in the evening and when I came back, after using the toilet, I realised that there was no water provided. Maybe it is a typical thing there but it was not advertised...

They let us check in at 3am without extra charge. I booked thru airbnb and will be coming from El Nido that's why the early check in. They were very welcoming. The breakfast was great! I love everything about this place. It's so homey. We stayed on the biggest room. There were 11 of us and we fit in perfectly....

The place was ok. I stayed in a double room. The wifi in the room was crap, I had to keep going outside to use the wifi. I was charged P2000 for just one night so I was very disappointed. The breakfast was ok, they have a range of cooked breakfast to choose from.
