The manager / owner is very accommodating as well as their staffs. We really enjoyed our stay.
The place is very nice. Love the rustic vibe. The staff were very nice and accommodating as well. The room was big. The WiFi is Fast. I wish they had bigger and thicker blankets, but overall we had a great experience staying here.
We stayed here for three days. Room was a little bit small but clean. Perfect location, 10 to 15 minute walk to town proper. They have a kitchen that you can use downstairs if you are really on a budget and want to make your own snacks/meals. Staff were friendly and helpful. Commended.
Our stay was great. The staffs are very accommodating and friendly. They always ensure that the guests are comfortable and happy. We surely recommend this place. Very affordable yet the quality does not suffer at all. A great value for money.

Amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Book this place
Wallahi some of the friendliest and most attentive staff. They help u with local transport, breakfast is good! Place is clean! The managers/owners (husband and wife) are such beautiful people and really try to make an effort on a personal level. You can book tours with them like the underground waterfall or a city tour etc. Great place near by to buy pearls. The breakfast area is great for socialising but its equally as easy to keep your self to your self if u dont want to be bothered. I would definitely stay here again if i was in the area! Just book it u will be happy :) the owners picked me up from the airport and had ice tea waiting for my arrival (beautiful touch) The staff would rush to bring you an umbrella if u were coming back in or simply going for breakfast. Such happy people i can not praise them enough

So Serene
Had stayed here for 2 nights and it was awesome. Sandra, the owner, is very accommodating. We arrive late night from el nido and staff stayed all night waiting for us. The place is so relaxing, so homey and peaceful. Surrounded by nature. The staff were also very accommodating and always had smile on their faces. Food is also delicious. I loved their cornedbeef breakfast. Room was clean amd ac was strong. Slept like a baby. Sandra also helped booked our tours which me and my friends enjoyed. We’ll be staying here again soon.

Your home in Puerto Princesa, Palawan
This place is close to commercial establishments and the city center but will still give you a quiet, homey vibes. It is definitely your "home away from home"! The staff were so accommodating and nice and the Manager Ms. Sandra made sure that all of our needs were taken cared of! I was traveling with my husband and 3 year old son so it's a big plus for me that someone is also looking after us. Their property has only several rooms so you are assured of the peaceful and relaxing vacation. The rooms are so clean and the room's interior is comparable to that of hotels. They have a policy of properly segregating your waste/garbage which brought a good impression on me that this establishment doesn't just do business for its sake, but are also concerned with their business' impact on the environment. Kudos to everyone in here, we will definitely go back!

Favorite Place in Puerto Princesa
The staff is extremely nice and accommodating. Rates are affordable and the food is bomb. It's super homey. The staff makes you feel like they'll really take care of you, and help you with whatever you need.

A home in the heart of Puerto Princesa
If you're looking for a place that feels like home in Palawan, then By the Bay Jacana's the perfect spot for you. The place offers serenity and comfortability, and it houses friendly staff, who would always be ready to attend to your needs. Besides being conveniently situated near the airport and Puerto Princesa's establishments, they also offer tour packages and services that can take you around the world's best island. ❤️ Many thanks again, Mia, Ate Sandra and Kuya BG for having us in this beautiful haven. It was truly an unforgettable week for us best friends. ☺️
