Cynthia is an amazing host! She picked us up from the airport when our flight got in, helped us rent mopeds and took us to the supermarket to ensure we had all we needed before we arrived at the villa.
This house is simply amazing. It is tucked away off the main road with an outdoor eating area and lounge and has everything you need, fresh water, fans and AC, good amount of lighting, nice kitchen, internet, cable etc. It is located very near the beach and close to the port to go island hopping off of Honda Bay. So it is ideal in that it is secluded but close to everything fun in Puerto Princessa.
I cant wait to come back here and stay again with my girlfriend. this is a lovely spot for a couple to relax either on your way to and from El Nido or simply on its own. A TRUE JEM! Thanks Cynthia. A++++
Arriving at Villa San Manuel was like stepping into a romantic movie scene - absolutely magical! It's the perfect home for relaxing and unwinding, away from the noisy car engines and hooters and yet close enough to the main road to catch a tricycle if you need to get into the city. We thoroughly enjoyed being woken up by the sound of birds singing and roosters crowing. The house itself is tastefully decorated with pieces of African art (being a South African it made me feel even more at home) and the kitchen is fully equipped with all the utensils you need. The room upstairs has a stunning view of the ocean. Cynthia picked us up from the airport and recommended activities to do and places to visit during our stay. In some instances she even drove us to the places and would patiently wait until we were ready to leave. It was an absolute pleasure staying at Villa San Manuel - Cynthia and her staff treated us like royalty every step of the way! We'll definitely be back with more family & friends.
I stayed with two friends for a long weekend in April 2015. Cynthia could not have been a more gracious host! She picked us up at the airport, and then dropped each of the three of us off individually. The house itself is really special - comfortable indoor and outdoor spaces and a beautiful garden. Cynthia took us on our own private Honda Bay tour - highly recommended if you want to go island hopping without booking a tour with 30 strangers. You can follow your own schedule, and Cynthia's lunch grill - seafood - was out of this world. Very knowledgeable, well-travelled, and all-around spectacular host!
Cynthia was there to meet us at the airport and brought us back for our departure to Manila. Her place was so nice and good ambiance, so home like, peaceful, quiet and safe/secure.
She went out of her way to make our stay enjoyable. We have a family BBQ and she provided us with extra tables, chairs to make our relatives and guest comfortable.
Eric really enjoyed his stay more in Palawan and hopes to come back again to Cynthia's place. We were able to rent the motorcycle and drove down to Microtel which is about 2 min from Cynthia's house.
The night before we go back to Manila, we decided to checkout the resto/bars in town. Mark (the caretaker) waited for us until we got home. Thanks Mark!
We highly recommend her place to anyone.
Cynthia war ein großartiger Gastgeber. Wir haben uns in der Villa San Manuel sehr wohlgefühlt. Die Unterkunft ist wie beschrieben und hat alles was man braucht und mehr, um sich mehrere Tage mit der Familie in Puerto Princesa zu erhohlen. Das Haus ist sehr liebevoll eingerichtet. Der große und gepflegte Garten mit der großen Terrasse wurde von uns ebenso gern genutzt. Alles hat funktioniert, inklusive WLAN. Die Umgebung ist ruhig, man ist weg von dem Geknatter der Jeepneys und Tricycles, allerdings sollte man nicht unterschätzen wie laut der eine oder andere Hahn zum Sonnenaufgang rufen kann.
Cynthia hat uns mit der Abholung vom Flughafen bis zur Organisation von Tagestouren sehr gut unterstützt. Der Strand vom nahe gelegenen Microtel war perfekt für unseren Sohn (4 Jahre). Wer schwimmen will sollte die umliegenden Pools besuchen oder sich von Cynthia zu einem der anderen Strände fahren lassen (Tagestour).
Zum Einkaufen oder, um nach Puerto Princesa zu fahren, ließ sich sehr einfach ein Tricycle organisieren.
Wir können einen Aufenthalt in der Villa San Manuel empfehlen.
Villa San Manuel is a wonderful place to stay, when you arrive in Palawan. The house is a beautiful oasis located on the just outside the city, in the residential area. The house is withdrawn from the surroundings, but not isolated, so you can enjoy the pleasant hum of local residents, but still remain undisturbed. The house is beautifully furnished and has all the amenities one could wish for, including WIFI(for the teenagers ). It was great to sit on the terrace in the garden with all the beautiful tropical plants and flowers, and enjoy the sounds of animals and birds in the mangroves in the backyard. If you want more activity, the center of Porto Princesa and several restaurants is only 5-10 minutes away by tricycle. We would absolutely recommend all who visit Porto Princesa, to stay in Villa San Manuel.
The place is simply as advertised and more!
Cynthia and her place was simply amazing. She picked us up from the airport and took us to the airport when we were leaving. Every thing we needed she, or her staff, made sure to accommodate us at every chance. Cynthia even arranged for a private tricycle driver to help take us around the city.
The house and grounds had me wishing I was staying for longer. It's quiet and secluded and each morning we were greeted with a sunrise over the ocean and the mangrove forest from our balcony.
There is even an outside dining area and the first night we just sat outside and caught up on emails, we were there primarily for work, and enjoyed the peaceful starry evening. At the time it was very windy so we never needed the ac, we just opened the windows and the breezy nights kept us cool.
Her place is perfect for a long term stay, and even just a few nights. I wish we could have stayed longer.
