5 Reasons I Love Microtel Inn & Suites in Puerto Princesa, Palawan

Today on the blog, I am concluding a series of posts about my last trip to Palawan. And what better way to cap the series than share with you all about my delightful stay at the MICROTEL INN & SUITES in Puerto Princesa. Yes, it's true. You need not venture very far from the capital city to enjoy a restful day at the beach. In fact, Microtel is just 3.2 kilometers from the airport or a mere 15 minute car ride. Indeed, it's a good choice when you're in town for business but want to grab some much-needed rest and relaxation in between meetings.

Here's five reasons I'd choose Microtel!

1. It's one of the few hotels in Puerto Princesa that has it's on beachfront!

While Puerto Princesa is a popular tourist destination known for it's stunning beaches, not a lot of hotels in the island have their own beachfront. While Microtel does have a wide picturesque beachfront, you do have to catch it during the high tide which is usually in the morning. Come the afternoon, the water will be a few meters away from the hotel during low tide.

2. Their vibrant interiors and the overall artsy vibe of the hotel provide for cool backdrops for your Instagram photos!

My blogger friends and I could not stop taking photos around the hotel! In fact, we would all wake up extra early everyday during our 4-day stay just to take tons of photos! Check out some of my favorites below:

3. Their staff are friendly and very accommodating

The staff was very swift in accommodating my little requests and they also shared some tips and advice in exploring Puerto Princesa!

4. Their rates are very affordable

Considering that MICROTEL offers air conditioned and fully-equipt rooms and suites, a full-sized pool, their own beachfront, and free shuttle service, their rates are really affordable!

5. They're near a lot of favorite tourists spots in Puerto Princesa

Since we were only in Puerto Princesa for 4 full days, we wanted to explore as many popular tourist spots on the island so it was perfect that MICROTEL PALAWAN is located near a lot of these places such as Emerald Playa Pavillion, Honda Bay, and the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park-a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Next time, you're in Puerto Princesa, check out Microtel Inn and Suites. It's perfect for those who want the best of two worlds - a secluded beach atmosphere and quick jaunts to downtown malls and restaurants.
