Stayed for a few nights in between island-hopping and touring the underground river, on the way back from El Nido. Everything's operational: working shower/toilet/water, working AC, working TV and wi-fi (although a little spotty). The room is fairly clean, and the breakfast service (served at the restaurant) was convenient and pretty good. The Haim Chicken Inato Restaurant is also very... More

Their Family Room is Php1,400/ night but the room is really really big! It's so big that we had a problem with the aircondition unit. It... More

This is a nice budget place to stay at Puerto Princesa. Also the good thing is that the popular Haim Chicken Inato is two steps from the hotel. The rooms are clean and the décor is simple. The service is good too.
