If you want a hotel in the centre of the nightlife of Puerto Princesa this isn't the place for you. If you want a quite sanctuary to unwind you'll find it here.
The Nitivos is a small family run place situated on a beautifully empty beach about an hour out of Puerto Princessa. We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of our trip to Palawan and felt refreshed at the end. Elena and her family made us feel very welcome and kept giving us local bananas and star apples which are great to eat in one of their hammocks. They gave us a lot of advice about the area and took us on a great hike up to a nearby waterfall. They were also able to get us permits to visit the underground river at pretty short notice (you should book several days in advance if possible as daily numbers are very limited)
It's worth taking insect repellant as it is close to the jungle and there are quite a few mosquitos at night. It's also easier to have them pick you up as its not an easy place to reach.
There aren't many food options near the resort, but there is plenty of philippino home cooking at the resort.
Very friendly and very affordable.
