An old place for a new feel”

This pension is already been around for years, but still, you can feel the great ambience it offers to its guests. You will enjoy the kubo (nipa hut) living through out all its rooms. Try it when you go to Palawan. Very near to everything, even SM mall.

Staff need to learn how to handle difficult situations better”

Don't get me wrong. I love the place. It is clean and homey. The room was nice and cozy. Everyone was friendly. There is only one thing that got me so disappointed. I ordered a canned pineapple juice after a long walk outside. I didn't bother to check the contents of the can since I was so thirsty at that time (although I checked the expiry label which is kind of a habit for me). When I took my first sip, I realized something was wrong. The juice was so bitter with a hint of metal. I vomited and when I looked at the content of the can, I saw black liquid inside the can. All I got from a member of the staff is a hesitant "sorry". That's it. No explanation, no whatsoever. Aside from that, everything was perfect.

We enjoyed our stay at puerto pension. Native design is a great feeling. Breakfast was good and plenty. Staff were nice. Compound felt safe with gate and security. Aircon worked well. Jacuzzi was broken down and had storage stuff all around it, not sure when it will be fixed. All in all a decent value. Near Baywalk and local market. Free airport transfer was really appreciated.

Disappointing - Not recommend”

Disappointing stay, not recommended even if the place looks nice and cozy and the staff are somewhat friendly. The only good was that they are offering free transportation to the airport. Changed two rooms because they had a very strong smell of MOLD and finally this smell is all over the place and you can't breathe. Complained to the staff and they were pretending that they don't smell anything and just offered to spay the room. Everything in the room was moistened so the next day our clothes were wet and it wasn't a rainy day. Found also a cockroach in the bathroom and there was no hot water! In top of all that the free breakfast was poor and they require an extra charge to upgrade your breakfast. Asked for an upgrade the previous night but at the morning they informed as that they didn't have what we ordered.

So good, I decided to extend my stay”

Very friendly and professional staff. Well maintained facilities. Zero Carbon Emissions.

I planned to stay one night at Puerto Pension, and then move to another hotel for the next night. It started off with the fellow who picked me up from the airport, who was fun to be with. So were his co-workers at the hotel. So I stayed on with Puerto Pension for another night. The hotel itself was nice and clean in every respect. Totally up to my expectations. But what sets Puerto Pension apart from many hotels is the warmth and hospitality extended to by the people that work there. I also appreciate the Zero Carbon Emissions drive that the hotel management tries to attain. The solar heated showers with four controls (hot, cold, shower/faucet, solar heater/electric heater)in the guest bathrooms says a lot about the investment that the Puerto Pension management has made to make this an environmentally responsible hotel. Puerto Pension is run by professional staff. The hotel facilities are well maintained. And the company exercises social responsibility by following Zero Carbon Emissions protocols.

Charming small hotel with local flavor”

Decorated with local/native style crafts, materials, art, and people. 5 stars in the local sense, not the Hilton sense. Small rooms, cozy, and everything worked, Air Conditioner, WIFI, phone, lights, etc. Hardwood floor in the room, quite unique as it slightly creaks as you walk :-). The bed was exceptional mattress, pillows and covers, great sleeping, queen size in our room. (Not the usual foam mattress and pillows usually found in PH) Location: Quiet, and a one block walk to the Baywalk where fresh seafood and local dishes await, a treat for Filipinos and visitors alike. Stroll and enjoy a nice evening. Breakfast was included and adequate, freshly cooked, brewed coffee a plus. Getting around: Trikes cost 10 Pesos per person in town, 60 Pesos to the airport, the Hotel has free transfers for the airport however. A motorbike rental is located at the hotel if you wish to explore. Staff: Very pleasant and helpful with tours and shopping suggestions. 5 Stars. Tours, we did the Underground River and Honda Bay, both OK, heavily organized, book at the front desk. Hint, use plenty of sunblock., and a hat. Further: Puerto Princesa is but a small part of Palawan, some world class beaches and resorts remain hidden and unspoiled.
