The moment we arrived at Puerto Princesa, we were greeted with a warm welcome and a shuttle waiting for us. When we got to the Pensionne, they had welcome drinks for us, and turned on the AC in the room so it'd be nice and cool. They also had souvenirs for us to take home at the end of our... More

Topmost thing that I loved about RAQ Pensionne is the service. The staff were very courteous and helpful. Right after we checked in, the receptionist gave us our welcoming drinks and rain sticks as gifts. She also asked us about our dinner plans for the few days of our stay and gave suggestions on which restaurants to visit. She even... More

For a decent price, you get a comfortable and clean room with hot shower and cable TV, as well as a couple of souvenirs! Service was impressive. They inform you about fares so you don't ripped off if you're commuting in the city, they have ready info for you about banks/souvenir places/restos, and they get your flight details to advise...

We really enjoyed our stay. Free airport transfer. Free breakfast. All staff are courteous and friendly. We usually choose a hotel with swimming pool in our travels. But my kids love Raq even without the pool because of the excellent customer service we got from this B&B. They kept on telling me that they want to go back to Palawan... More
