The Microtel by Wyndham is a well known international chain of affordable hotels and resorts. Their Puerto Princesa property follows the same line, offering a budget option for people who want to focus on tours and attractions rather than stay at the resort all day long. Still, this 3 stars hotel not only offers great value for money, but also high standards of service and quality considering the price.

That said, there are also quite a few distinct downsides to staying at the Microtel. The rooms are quite small and could use a renovation, and the hotel is quite far from the city, where most bars and restaurants are located. Still, it’s one of the better places to stay at during your time in Palawan, as you literally only have to open your room’s door and you’ll be at a stunning private beach. Read this detailed review carefully, and you’ll be able to figure out whether Microtel is the right accommodation choice for you Palawan trip or not.

[expert_review] There are 13 different Microtel hotels in the Philippines, anywhere from Manila to Davao and Boracay. The chain also has more than 300 hotels worldwide, mostly in the US, Canada and Mexico. Microtel is a part of the Wyndham group of hotels – the largest hotel company in the world, with more than 8100 hotels in 71 different countries. All this means that you are in good hands, and can trust you’ll get a reliable and professional service throughout your vacation, since this hotel really cares about its reputation.

Since there are only 50 rooms at the Microtel, it’s no surprise guests have been praising the level of service so much. This is a place where you will enjoy a lot of personal attention, so in that regard its certainly better than the large resorts closer to town. The rooms are quite small though, so that’s something you should take into account. They each come with air conditioning, flat screen TV, mini fridge and a safety deposit box. Free WiFi is also included, but as mentioned the signal inside the rooms is very weak – you are better off going to the lobby or restaurant instead.

[pros_cons] Sadly, there are no added facilities at the Microtel apart from the swimming pool and the restaurant. This isn’t the best place for an all inclusive stay, which is unfortunate because you are quite far from all the bars and restaurants of Puerto Princesa. Instead, what you’ll do here is spend most of your time just relaxing at the beach. This is by no means a bad thing, especially since the beach area is amazing, but you have to prepared for the fact there isn’t too much else to do over there.

Breakfast is included in the price of the room, and is served in a buffet style. We didn’t get a chance to try it out ourselves, but everyone tells us it’s quite good. Other meals can be taken at the restaurant as well, as there’s a set menu for both lunch and dinner. Additionally, Microtel also arranges tours for its guest, such as island hopping and snorkeling at the nearby Honda Bay.

To sum everything up, the Microtel by Wyndham is one of the overall better choices of accommodation in Puerto Princesa, especially for those who want to stick to a budget. In that regard, it’s probably one of the best hotels in Palawan. For a relatively low amount, you get excellent service and adequate rooms. Most importantly, you’ll enjoy access to one of the better private beaches in the area. While the Microtel isn’t the best option for families, we certainly recommend any single traveler or couples to consider it while planning their vacation in Puerto Princesa.
