We stayed here over the new year for 3 nights. Had the room on the 3rd floor with a 180 degree sea view. Room was small but clean and nicely decorated, bathroom clean and fairly modern as well. The terace in front of the room was very nice to spent time in the evenings. Wifi was working quite well for... More

We spent one night here on our way out of Palawan. The room was a bit small, but adequate for one or two nights. The hotel grounds are very nicely kept and offer a nice view from the rooms and outdoor hallways. Good AC, TV, and hot water in shower, wifi was only working in lobby but there seemed to... More

The hotel is average, the rooms were pleasant enough. It was loud in the evenings when trying to get to sleep and there are no mosquito nets. The staff were quite helpful. The food in the restaurant on the top floor must have served the worst food we had in the Phippines, and the worst sandwiches I've ever had.

Good location with great views from the roof-top restaurant, where breakfast is served. Free pick-up service from the airport went very well. Rooms are small for Fillipino standards in this price category, but clean and neat. Overall: Overpriced but good value for the first night on Palawan.

We booked with Agoda a month out. We had a 8pm checked in, so just wanted to get in and find food for dinner after an international flight. In hindsight I should have asked if there was a better room before unpacking, aka, never accept the first room given to you. Our room was small and smelt like mould. The... More

I can't vouch for the actual accommodation as I only visited Puerto Pension on the way to the port for my boat to Coron. What we did find though was a beautiful courtyard with value for money beers and tasty if basic food. The menu ranges across the continents, we ate chilli garlic prawns and sweet and sour fish, though... More

It was an affordable 3day stay for a family of 7 adults. We did not have any problem from the day we checked in. Room and all beddings were clean though room was not very spacious. Served complimentary breakfast but were at small portion. Location is accessible and was near the baywalk. Overall, we had a pleasant stay without spending... More

Clean rooms, working electricity, decent wifi and the most friendly and helpful of staff. Cannot recommend enough! Location isn't bad for Puerto, just a short trike ride away from anything. Staff always on hand for anything you might need or to give travel advice.

My wife and I decided to stay at the Puerto pension after reading reviews and viewing their website. We liked the promo package they were offering of 4day/3night including free breakfast, 1 hour free Jacuzzi, Underground river tour, city tour, Honda bay tour, Baycruise firefly tour, and airport pick-up/drop-off. The hotel is around 10 minutes for the airport, so very... More

Last week(12/6-9/2014) we went here, we are lucky to witness how they celebrate their fiesta there. As far as the service, food, and accessibility to market, baywalk and cathedral are concern, we are very satisfied. Since the place is near the baywalk and at the same time Fiesta there every night we went there to watch some events, Perto pension... More
