We are very glad that you enjoyed your stay with us, although it was a bit short. It takes a special kind of person to appreciate the coziness of our cabins and the genuine friendliness of our staff, and you are one of those special people. Thanks so very much!

This place is one of the best, if not the BEST place to stay in Puerto Princesa.

I made the booking through a third party website and made sure that everything is ok and taken care of by emailing them directly. I received a very courteous reply from Nancy, the owner. She confirmed that everything is ok and that we only need to show up at the airport and someone will pick us up.

The flight was delayed for about 30 minutes and I was not able to inform of the delay. However, upon exiting the terminal, I was able to see the pickup service waiting patiently for us. If I am not mistaken, our van driver's name is Rudy. He is very very friendly and he gave us some facts about Puerto Princesa while driving on our way to the hotel.

Upon arriving at the facility, we were greeted cheerfully by this lady in the reception area, asked me to fill up a form, agree to the terms and conditions, then handed us our key. They even offered to carry our bags but since they are not that heavy we carried it ourselves.

Breakfast is awesome. They will ask you the night before what you would like to have. That is good because the moment we sat at the dining area, our breakfast is out in 5 minutes time. You have a choice if you want Longganisa, Tocino, Dangguit, Bacon, or Sausage. It comes with egg, bread or rice and coffee/Juice.

During our free time, we were able to chat with the staff and they are GENUINELY FRIENDLY. I love the way they tell you stories about Palawan, gives you advice on the best places to eat, as well as the approximate amount of fare.

They will even offer to drive you to places where you want to go within the city, which we accepted multiple times (thanks rudy)

The rooms is one of the highlights of the place. Each of you will have your own personal cabin
complete with basic amenities such as TV, air conditioning, private restroom, and comfy beds and towels.

There are plants everywhere and there is a big tree in the middle of the property. You will wake up to the sound of birds chirping... that is how good the place is, a pocket paradise.

We were also able to have a brief chat with Miss Nancy, She is a very down to earth person and she greeted and waved at us when we arrived from our city tour. How welcoming!

Overall, The place is perfect, the staff is amazing, the food is good, Make this place your HOME in Puerto Princesa... you will NEVER regret it.

Indeed, we would like every guest to make Subli his/her home in Puerto Princesa. Thanks so much for your recommendation and the vote of confidence! We won't be able to continue offering our unique brand of service without guests like you who vouch for our sincerity and genuineness. And as we always say, it goes both ways - sincere and down-to-earth people deserve the same sincere and down-to-earth treatment from all of us at Subli! Thanks a lot and hope to see you again!

I've had great time staying here in Subli. This is, so far, the best customer service experience I've had when it comes to hotel and accommodation. It may not be a five star or 1st class resort or hotel BUT the staff here are really really great and nice! From the airport transfer to the reception area, everyone of them are exceptional!

Unfortunately TA wont let me upload pictures. We arranged an airport pick up but our flight was delayed but we didn't have their number to inform them but when we arrived they were waiting, we were surprised.
Their were 6 in our party, big spacious cabin, air con, 2 shower, toilets and sinks which very useful for a group party. Outside their a hammocks, wifi, quiet cabin, dining area etc
the cabin is away from the main bit, but if the owners are available they drove us to their recommended restaurant. We got a tricycle back to cabin.
an amazinb staff the staff are extremely helpful and accommodating, cannot praise them enough.
Thoroughly recommend staying here, and you can book activities at the front desk (we did this last minute everytime, to book tours).

Staying in subli was one of our most memorable moments in puerto princesa.. my girlfriend fell in love with the cabin the first time she saw it.. the room is very basic but it has everything you need to be comfortable.. very clean room, working ac, comfortable bed, cable tv, clean restroom, hot water and strong wifi, peaceful and away from the noise of the town, waking up in the morning with birds chirping is not a common scene from where I've come from. what else can you ask for?.. the staff always greets us and welcome us with a smile which is so heartwarming.. they arranged our tour so we don't need to worry about anything anymore, they will even remind us what will be our pick up time and what will our breakfast be for the next morning.. breakfast is also great, so great that I had to ask extra rice.. the hammock is also one of our favorite place to stay while listening to "spartan" the talking bird hehe.. one thing that's great about them too is that they're always willing to bring us to any restaurant that we want go to, that's something that most hotels doesn't do. the willingness to go extra miles just for customer service is something to give credit for.. we will always treasure our memories in subli and if ever we'll be in puerto princesa again we will definitely stay at subli again for sure.. thanks Mam Nancy and all subli staff for making our puerto princesa trip memorable..

Thanks a lot for appreciating everything at Subli, including the chirping birds at your window and the hammocks under our mango tree. Hope you can come back and relax with us again some time soon.

This review is overdue.. This was may first introduction to Palawan, and it was one of my favorite places we stayed on my entire trip of a month here! We were greeted and picked up at the airport, just like having your friends pick you up! Our cabin was so cute, and the guesthouse is small, so you really feel like you are a guest! And they treat you like your more like family with lots of love and attention! The breakfast was amazing and loved the local sausage.. Yum! They recommended and drove us to a great restaurant for dinner and helped us get our permits to the underground river in the morning as well! The only thing is i wish we could of gone back or stayed longer! We were only arriving and passing through on our journey through Palawan! Loved this place! Thanks much for our great introduction to Palawan!

It's a nice but simple place to stay and relax after a tiring tour at Palawan. We only stayed here for a night but I wanted to stay longer because I find the place very serene. It is not near the city but it is not too far. You can take a tricycle for only P60 maximum of 4 passengers. Breakfast is pre-ordered the night before, set meal already. The rooms and bathrooms are very very simple. What I like most is their 'duyan' or hammock because you can just lay down and relax anytime of the day. They have a lot of trees and plants around which makes the air smells so clean and fresh. The owner, Nancy was the one who arranged for our underground river tour. They even picked us up from the airport.

With the place and service, you get more than what you pay for.

Thank you so much for staying with us, even if it was just for 1 night. We wish you could have stayed longer to enjoy the hammocks and hang out in our reading hut. But there's always a next time. Hope you can return, Thanks a lot!
