Very good experience! Communication with Cynthias was excellent and thr cottage is ideal! A bit hot during the day but very peaceful! In a 10min trycicle ride there is a big mall with a big supermarket! The kitchen has everything you need! I would definitely recommend it! Thank you again Cynthia
First of all, Cynthia was the most hospitable host I ever had. Her guest house is delightful. A few friends and I came to Puerto Princessa to experience this tropical paradise. We were so glad to find a place like San Manuel guest house.
Cynthia and fellow caretakers took great care of us. This house is absolutely beautiful, all the amenities you would need. Cynthia was also kind enough to give us a ride to and from the airport, and book all our Palawan adventures. I will definitely come back to this house again.
We had an amazing 10-day stay at Villa San Manuel! The house looks even better in reality than on the pictures. Cynthia was all the time very helpful to us – from the pickup service at the airport, driving us to the car rental shop, and to answering our questions regarding Puerto Princesa tours. She even personally made sure we were all fine when we had a minor accident with a motorcycle! Also, Mark, the caretaker of the house, who lives next door, was there for us whenever we needed him. For example, ordering and delivering containers of drinking water, accompanying us to the market, checking on the air condition, etc.
The house is perfectly fitted to our needs. There are 2 separate bedrooms, so, we brought our parents along. They enjoyed the place the most, particularly, the gazebo and the garden. There’s always fresh breeze from the seaside, that it is almost unnecessary to use the air condition during daytime. We used aircon mostly in the evening, but our bill for the electricity was still reasonable. The idea of having a separate bill for electricity is good, this way visitors become aware on what they will be actually consuming.
We were looking for a quite place not to far from the main town and for us, this is just right place. Only 5-minute drive to the main highway, far enough from the noise of the traffic, but still convenient enough to reach the main town. Our parents enjoyed the relaxation, while we enjoyed the dive spots near Puerto Princesa. Moana Dive Center (located along the airport road) showed us the best dive spots in Puerto Princesa– a perfect warm up for our Tubbataha liveaboard trip which started right after our 10-day stay at Villa San Manuel.
We would love to come back to Villa San Manuel. It is an ideal location for us to stay in Puerto Princesa, Palawan.
Cynthia is someone you rarely come across in life. She went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable during our stay, she truly spoiled us. Out of the 10 hotels & Airbnb apartments I've stayed at in the Philippines, Cynthia's was hands down the absolute best. The house is everything you can dream of; beautifully decorated and has everything you could possibly need (strong internet, washer, indoor/outdoor entertainment areas, gardens, every kitchen gadget, fresh breeze, everything!!!!)
Cynthia took us on an excursion to the mountains, she prepared a BBQ for us, and she allowed us to use her motorbike beyond our stay at her property. I have never had such an amazing hostess.
If you have the opportunity to rent this house and meet Cynthia, DO IT!!! It may just be the best part of your whole trip. Thank you for everything! Can't wait to come back!!
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!
