Casa Linda Inn

January 21, 2011

One of the first inns operating out of Puerto Princesa, Casa Linda Inn is aptly named and translates to “Beautiful House” in Spanish – The Inn started off as a Four-room inn way back in 1962. Its rooms were rented out to guests who were mostly oil co. pilots, US Peace Corps Volunteers. To this date, it still stands.

The central feature of the inn is the garden with the thatched roof gazebo flanked by the rooms on either side. The materials are mostly indigenous and are made up of sawali walls, sakot columns and the spotless ipil –hardwood floors.

The garden of local flora including two dwarf coconut trees, enhances the Filipino feel of the place. If you are really early and quiet, squirrels and different birds flit around the property from the surrounding acacia trees.

The Inn’s restaurant has 6 tables and a bar area. You may also take your meals in the Gazebo. A number of guests have raved about the restaurants’ pancakes and omelettes.

The restaurants breakfast menu is complete including Continental, American and Filipino Breakfasts, at very reasonable prices. The Kitchen opens at 6a.m. and closes at 9p.m. The Staff also accommodates special meal requests and they also allow guests to cook in the kitchen for a minimum charge.

Other amenities include laundry, safety deposit, tour information and assistance, transportation hiring assistance, fax services and long distance calls.

A small book stand is also located at the foyer, here guests can borrow or exchange books. There is also a small souvenir shop with Filipino handicrafts and t-shirts available for sale.
