If you plan to visit Puerto Princesa, this is the place to stay. Clean, comfortable and quiet. The staff will make you feel like at home. Decent size pool and nice garden, ideal to doze off during the hot days.

It was always a pleasure to have a great and comfy place to stay after our 3 days adventure in puerto princesa. The hotel is great with friendly and accommodating staff and we had a leisure time enjoying their gym facilities and had some pool time every end of our tour.

I absolutely loved this place right down to the 4 post bed. Its a blend of old world design and modern service. Meals from the restaurant were good however this hotel is not within walking distance to any others. That delima is solved with a short tricycle ride. Would I stay here again - most definately. 😁

The rooms were ok- the food was horrible! The service at the restaurant was poor. Ex: no bananas because they have not been to the market; several times the food served was not what we ordered- then had to wait for the correct one to be cooked. The quality of food was not up to par. Very disappointing stay!

Everything at Dolce Vita was top-notch; helpful, friendly staff, good food, a really nice pool area, a well-equipped gym, and a comfortable, spacious room and bathroom. The location is fine; it's on a quiet dead-end side street, but just a 5 or 10 minute ride in a tricycle to anywhere in town. We did also walk from the hotel to...

My husband and I have visited several places but Dolce Vita Staff made us feel right at home. We were greeted with welcome drinks as soon as we arrived. The staff has always been pleasant and accommodating. I actually had the best night sleep ever. We will definitely be going back but this time, with friends and family.

I stayed here with my family for 4 days and 3 nights. The place was great and the staff were really amazing and very friendly. The restaurant offers an affordable menu and the food was delicious. They are also flexible on what you need and accomodates requests if they can!

Guests have different opinions and likes but I think on other criteria management still needs some improvements especially in the shower room and whoever is I charge should pay attention to comments. I can't stress enough about the facility as a saying what do you expect for this price. Being a tourist spot owners should really pay attentions to everything...
