Hillside Resort Palawan, Puerto Princesa

Are you planning to visit Palawan soon? If yes, this is an ideal place for you especially if you consider staying longer in Puerto Princesa than in El Nido. Hillside Resort Palawan was first established in 1995. Once you go there you will soon realize why the resort’s name is Hillside. It’s actually because it is on the side of a hill. It makes sense, doesn’t it?

The Room

For our next stop, the room. The room is well-kept which has two beds, a television, a refrigerator, a cabinet, and a dresser. It looks wide and inviting at the same time. We loved staying in our room for most of our stay.

The bed has a soft quilt and enough cleaned pillows which will definitely make you feel relaxed. The dresser is very useful, the mirror is big enough. Also, it’s nice to check the cupboards with lots of hanger clothes. There are also towels and soaps provided for you! They could give everything that you need during your stay at the resort.

The Restroom

With the restroom, it is spotless and odorless which seems to be great! You won’t have any problem with using it anymore. The amenities of the room are all impressive. They all look fascinating. But, the air conditioner during our stay seemed not to be working well. That’s why we requested a fan from them.

The Veranda

Once you go out of your room, there is a balcony which also serves as the hallway for every room of the resort. You can enjoy staying at the veranda in the morning while having a sip of coffee. By the way, there are only eight rooms along the hallway and three other rooms on the lower part of the resort.

The Surroundings

As you look around the resort, you may notice the three other rooms facing the veranda. These three rooms’ exterior is quite different from others. It is in a nipa hut style. Its interior is the same as the other eight rooms. In addition, the owner told me that they only provide these three rooms for the students.

They also have a restaurant facing the swimming pool that has one slide. The swimming pool is vast and clear. By the way, you can go swimming and eat at their restaurant from 6 pm until 9 pm. Besides that, the restaurant is open to grand events or special celebrations.

They provide wifi connection but the connection isn’t that good enough to consume. With that, you can’t do anything but to immerse yourself in this place. You will be able to focus on your friends or loved ones while staying here!
