Reviewed 21 August 2014

We stayed at Dolce Vita last August 15-17,2014. The hotel is clean, quiet and relaxing. They have a very beautiful garden and our room is big. The hotel staff are friendly with free shuttle to and from the airport. It is located near restaurants and souvenir shops. Our family really enjoyed our stay at this hotel and we'll surely stay again in this hotel when we visit Palawan in the future.

Clean, tidy, quiet and very relaxing place to stay in Puerto Princesa City. There is no smell at all inside or outside of the rooms. Rooms have a very good king size solid bed. Good friendly staff. Free shuttle bus to and from airport. Food is very good. Restaurant is in the middle of a beautiful garden. The complimentary breakfast is very enjoyable, brewed coffee and drinking water is also available any time without charge. You will be comfortable here.
There is a very nice Thai and Indian restaurant nearby they can cater for children and vegetarian "Lale' restaurant "

We stayed at Dolce Vita last May 2014. Overall, the hotel is very good. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Location was very strategic as it is near the airport, restaurants and souvenir shops - just a trike ride away. Rooms are always clean and the place was quiet. We've also arranged our tours (City Tour, Underground River & Honda Bay) during our hotel reservation, and everything was ready and organized when we arrived. We just have to wait for our call once our tourist guide/van fetches us. They've also provided tips on the best Palawan can offer - from restaurants, souvenirs and other tourist attractions. Though it was not really perfect (water was a problem during peak hours - 5 to 7AM and free wifi was not working well in our room), our stay was generally very good. Well worth the price. I highly recommend this hotel.

The hotel is beautiful, with rooms with antique, beautiful furnitures. There is a quite big and nice pool, located in a small but beautiful garden, where it's ok to spend a day. The service is uneven, both good and bad, depending on who is working. One can ask for having the breakfast served at the table outside your room (without extra cost), which is a nice start of the day.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the upper floor.

I had the privilege to stay at The Dolce Vita from August 2013- February 2014 after being assigned to Palawan for my work. Location was key. Tucked away by itself. Very friendly hotel staff. Always a clean room. Robert, the owner, and his wife were more than willing to assist with any needs that had arisen. "The Fun Pub" is a great area for small conventions or holiday parties. If you happen to stay there during a holiday, Robert and the hotel staff put on a great holiday parties and all guests are welcome for a show and food and drinks. We ended up spending a few nights in El Nido for a weekend getaway, and the associate in charge of tours actually booked us a Pension house in El Nido for a great price and arranged transportation for us. Overall a great experience. I know if I do go back to Palawan, I will be staying with Robert and his friendly staff at the Dolce Vita.

Stayed: August 2013

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. It's very near from the airport around 5 to 10 minutes drive and around 5 minutes from hotel to downtown. On our first day, we are very tired but when we arrived in this hotel the tranquility of the surroundings help us to be relax and the staff gave us a complimentary iced tea and they welcome us with a smile. We really felt that we are one family there because the staff are very accommodating and helpful to attend our needs. When we saw our room, its located on the lower ground, Rose room is the name,its near in the swimming pool and the restaurant, it looks great, smells good and very clean. If you are a couple or first timer in Palawan and you dont have yet any plans to go on the next days the front desk officer in this hotel name Erick offered us the tour package. We tried the honda bay and underground river tour. Its very affordable and for sure you will love it. On our second day, We used the hotel's swimming pool, the water is well maintained, its clean and not that too cold. It safe also to swim if your height is 5 feet or more because the depth of their pool is only 5 feet. Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. The staffs are very friendly and helpful as well as cleanliness are well maintained even in our room, take note FREE OF CHARGE in daily cleaning and they will replace the used towels with FREE 2 BOTTLED WATER. Breakfast and dinner meals are very delicious.
