I am sure by now you have trawled through many reviews about Kookabura travel lodge and wondered whether it’s too good to be true. We spent 5 nights in Kookaburra Travel lodge and I can honestly tell you that the customer service is amazing. I specifically chose this hotel as I wanted my family to stay in family owned hotel...

The family room (for 6 pax) we booked was very comfortable, clean and huge. This is very near the airport around 5 mins travel (free from noises, and the busy street since it is not on the main Rizal road and with free airport transfers. The staff was very accommodating and very friendly. We were able to met the owner... More

Their service was really great from the time of our reservation to the day we left. To start off, we booked months before our trip and so we were able to avail the discount. When we arrived at the airport, their driver (Von - who was also very nice) was already there waiting for us. It was a short trip... More

The room we stayed was clean and the bed was comfortable. Location is good and the staff were friendly and helpful. The only thing we didn't like is the water pump just outside our room - I'm not a light sleeper but it really disturbed us during the night. They gave us a room on the first floor - near... More

Overall, a nice place. I think a bit on the expensive side for the Philippines, but the room was decent size and clean with beyond-basic furniture. Location is near the airport (with free pickup), so in that way, it is convenient (it was super nice to have their driver waiting for me on my arrival). And not too far from... More

Stayed here for only one night after travelling from El Nido. Chose it because of its proximity to the airport and their complimentary airport transfers. Didn't get to visit the beach nearby but we did go to a restaurant at their recommendation - Badjao. Very thankful for their information as the meal was spectacular and the sunset view a highlight.... More

OC that I am, I browsed as much online reviews of possible lodging options as possible. Gut feel made us book with Kookaburra. Since I wanted this to be a real vacation for us, I wanted everything in order even before we arrive. The manager, Butch, was very kind in helping us achieve this. He was quick in responding to...

This place is a little out of the way but I think it's well worth your money. The rooms are clean and the showers worked fine. It's also very quiet. Breakfast was okay. What I liked best about this place was the atmosphere. Unlike other places in Puerto Princesa, this place is all about nature. Lots of lush greenery. For... More

We read reviews first about hotels in Puerto Princesa and this hotel have a lot of good reviews. So we booked by calling them and sending emails for any questions. They answer all our questions and we informed them how long we will stay and the places we want to go. (1 month prior our flight). They just get our... More
