We arrived to Puerto Princesa and met Andre (the owner) at the airport and bought the transfer to Sabang from him. We hadn't booked any accommodation at Sabang and as our flight was delayed too and we got there very late, we luckily had a room at Bambua for 2 nights. We were staying at Bambua family cottage in the...

We loved our stay here. Andre and his family run this simple little collection of cabins. Incredibly well priced, clean and simple. Sabang has more to offer than the underground river alone. If you like nature and want to stay away from the crowds spend a little extra time here. Booking the river tour and accommodation package is recommended as...

Bambua was a nice experience. Simple and natural, even though i was scared to use the bathroom at night because it was dark and there is no electricity. The service was not good. Nobody to assist you in anyway, we only met the owner on our way out after staying there for two nights. Make sure you bring a torch...

We stayed here three nights. Andre, the owner, was very friendly and helpful planning daytrips. The food there was delicious and fulfilled all our wishes. The cottages are clean and spacious. They are located on a very clean and well taken care of area close to wildlife. We could see monkeys from our doorstep. I would stay here again and...

We chose this place to stay as it was cheap and away from the tourist hustle of Sabang. It was lovely and peaceful during the day with a stunning garden. Unfortunately it was really noisy during the night with nocturnal jungle noises. The bathroom was pretty basic and if you do stay here wear heaps of insect repellent. We went...

This was only accommodation we could get in Sabang as we arrived there without having booked any. all was booked along beach so local people help and took us to Bambua. What a beautiful place! Paradise for nature lovers. It is not at the beach directly but 15min walk behind village on the small hill. There is couple of cottages,...

This is the second time we booked at Bambua. But this time, instead of 5, we were 12 adults with 2 kids. It takes a certain kind of traveller to appreciate the rustic ambiance of this place. Birds. Friendly cat. Friendly dog. Quiet. Not a luxurious place. If there are guests with kids, get Andre to agree to keep the...

This is a rural retreat away from the beach (15 minute walk) and the noisy resort. Very friendly and helpful staff who assisted us with sights to see in Sabang and our onward trip.
