Where to stay in Puerto Princesa

The main urban area on the east coast provides the bulk of accommodations for visitors to Puerto Princesa. Choose from a rich variety of large resorts, relaxing spa retreats, and eco-lodges, with many nudged up as close as they can get to the beaches and offering sea views. More basic accommodations include side-street guesthouses and dormitory-style hostels, while wilder options can be found sitting in privileged places along the coast to the north and south.
