Felice Cafe is a vacation home located just on the outskirts of Puerto Princesa - far enough from town to have your peace and quiet, near enough to be in touch with the basics. It is a cozy cottage surrounded by coffee trees with friendly dogs on the property. Enjoy your morning in the balcony where you can enjoy the green with the sound of birds, take a midday dip in the pool, drink coffee by the coffee trees and an open kitchen where everyone is welcome to cook and dine.
“Steve's place was amazing! We booked into felice cafe for New year's eve, and it was just gorgeous. The house itself is beautiful, with a beautiful view across the balcony, and an amazing little pool which you share with Steve and his girlfriend. Whilst we were there he was away with friends so we had the place to ourself. It was lovely and romantic and Rhona, his housekeeper, was attentive, thoughtful, and friendly. We felt really welcome. The whole place was perfectly maintained, and extremely clean. It's set back from the main road which means it's lovely and private, and super quiet (apart from new years eve videoke, but hey, we're in the Philippines what can we expect?) The location was great. A tricycle to the airport was only 80 pesos, and there's a reasonable bike rental shop just across the road. We decided to ride to el nido, and so Steve and rhona allowed us to leave our bags there to collect at a later date. Their hospitality was outstanding. It was truly faultless and fantastic value for money. If we are ever in puerto again this is definitely where we'll stay!”

“Ma’am Cynthia is actually the best guest house that I’ve never had Her villa in Puerto princesa was wonderful and perfectly clean but the best thing about Villa San Manuel is to meet Cynthia She’s kind, gentil, respectful and she’s always replying to any question or doubt, she even proposes you activity’s. For me that was perfect because for someone like me who travels alone it’s always beautiful to know people that take care of you like Ma’am Cynthia toked care of me. She communicates a lot and she even speaks French ! Lol Ma’am Cynthia, thanks again for what you did for me, it was a wonderful experience The house is perfectly equipped, perfectly clean and accesible to comercial center, to the wonderful beach and to the center of Palawan, it’s really a good place to be if you flight to Puerto princesa before traveling a El Nido Sara”

“As far as ecolodges go, this one was great! - . PROS: Open air living a few dozen yards from the beach. We didn’t put our shoes on for at least a week. Meals are good home cooked Filipino dishes with requests honored easily by the staff. Ask about lugaw for breakfast or fresh coconuts to drink and eat. We totally recommend the pancakes and eggs in the morning as they are delicious. The pups surrounding the house are friendly and we made friends with Lucky, a little German Shepard pup who was happy to play with our kids. The surf board and boogie boards were a great addition as was the snorkeling trip we took out to see the coral reef. - . TIPS - TIPS - TIPS 1. Water isn’t heated and electrical during the day is solar so electronic devices cannot be charged until the evening when the generator turns on (6pm to 9pm) so be prepared for that. We recommend bringing a solar charger; that helped us for charging phones so we could take pictures. - . 2. For those who have preferences for certain types of coffee we would recommend bringing your own powdered coffee or tea bags. - . 3. We were there in December and would still have benefited from a battery powered fan, especially at night. We highly recommend you bring one. - . 4. Be aware that with it being open air living there are a lot of noises at night - geckos, bats, waves, bugs chirping. It’s part of the charm but something you should be aware of especially if you’re used to city dwelling. - . 5. Bring your own snorkel gear - it’s helpful even though they have a set of fins there. Snorkel guide is about 500pp for a morning. - . 6. Certain parts of the drive to and from Puerto Princesa can be rough going so those sensitive to being car sick should bring something to mitigate this. I’m not particularly prone but still stuck my head out the window for some air at certain points. - . 7. Last but not least the sea sometimes is flat but when we were there, we had good sized waves, which our kids loved but you may want to consider floaties for little ones. - . 8. We were able to get some internet (not WiFi) when we were there and absolutely needed it (for example contacting our driver) though the staff are able to do this for you also. - . Thank you for your hospitality Palawan Ecolodge! We had an absolutely lovely stay.”
