In my point of view, the tourism industry of Puerto Princesa is more or less standardized. Hence, no tourist should feel ripped off or shortchanged during a visit to this charming city. Just like the city, A&A did not disappoint my family.
I chose to stay here because A&A front desk personnel were one of the quickest to respond to my email inquiries. When we arrived at the airport, the hotel van was there to whisk us off to the hotel. Check-in was a hassle-free; our rooms were ready and in order. Best of all, we were allowed to check-in at 10 am (June is the start of the low season anyway).
The rooms are spacious enough for a standard provincial hotel. Bathroom is clean and all fixtures are modern and functioning. The elevator is out of order, but the hotel is only 4-stories high anyway. Breakfast is good, plentiful and typically Filipino.
Booking for tours (e.g. Subterranean River, Honda Bay) is very easy and efficient through the front desk. And they remind you of pick up time every time they'd see you.
Although the manager/ owner is a man of few words (i.e. quiet and goes about doing his own business), he is very hands-on and his being regularly present assured me of good and efficient service from the staff.
A&A Plaza Hotel met all of my expectations and I would definitely recommend it to my friends.More
