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! Cheers

New hotel 5 stars service worthy

This hotel is so new that even locals are unaware of its location. Their service is also 5stars worthy making you feel like you are at home being taken care of by family. Their food is also excellent. Breakfast was free and whatever I couldn't finish I was able to take to go for a extra 20peso. You are in good care here my stay was great and the value is worth every penny. When I checked in I was offered more free services that I didnt expect, this place is worth more exposure because it is probably one of the best hotels around in the heart of the city.
