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 The house is withdrawn from the surroundings, but not isolated, so you can enjoy the pleasant hum of local residents, but still remain undisturbed.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.
Everything you read about Cynthia is true. She is supernice and helpful. The Place is great, but a little away from the city, so make sure you know how to get home if you og out for dinner.
The stay at Cynthias house was great. It is a lovely place and we will be returning in a week to stay here again. I think I speak for all of us when I say we really liked it here- Also airport pick up was very nice and super handy.
WOW! Our experiences with Cynthia were just brilliant! She picked us up from the airport and took us to the villa, which we would never have found on our own. The villa was just perfect for our family of 4. There was fresh fruit and flowers along with cold water. The villa's simple, beautiful style made us feel at home. The fans kept us just the right temperature and her entire staff was super helpful. Internet, WIFI and TV were all good.
The quaint neighborhood reminded us of previous places we've lived - Ghana and Panama. The neighbors were warm and friendly and we were able to run and walk to places with ease. Just 8-10 minutes down the road to the right was the Mictotel which (as Cynthia mentioned) has a pool (for 300pesos pp) and a beach (free!) along with kayaks for rent (200pesos per boat/per hour). One day, we kayaked along the shore and past the mangroves and it was excellent. Another day, we spent the day at the pool and played on the beach.
The best day at Villa San Manuel was a day trip we took with Cynthia and her friendly staff to a beach called Nactabon (don't know if I'm spelling it right). We were able to enjoy the villa in the morning, a 45 minute ride the the beach (ONE OF MY FAVORITES in the WORLD!), BBQ lunch and lots of time playing in the waves. (BTW - no waves on the beach at the Microtel, but lots of kite surfing if you like that!) We relaxed on the beach and enjoyed each other's company.
The OTHER great thing that Cynthia did for us was to help us with the next leg of our journey. We were heading to El Nido and hadn't found the perfect place for our family, but SHE HAS THE PERFECT place... and we're headed there today.
I would recommend Cynthia and her Villa San Manuel to all hearty travelers in search of a quiet place outside the city center and an authentic experience in amazing Palawan!
