“great service!”
Reviewed March 26, 2012

We stayed here 4n, and everything went really well. Service was excellent, staff very friendly and helpful. All our trips were organized excellently. Our room was quite basic, but very clean. The breakfast was good also. Location is a double edged sword. It´s really nice, because the beach is very close and the area is really quiet. On the other hand it takes 20-30 minutes time to walk to the city, where all restaurants are.

I think kookaburra really deserves to be commended for their great service and facilities. Staff super friendly and accommodating, never fails to ask if we have any request, really shows importance to all their guests. Breakfast served were always good, overall makes the guest really feel special. Even the travel agency they arranged for us were also great, tour guides entertaining, experienced no prob and hassle at all. So spread the word! Keep it up kookaburra! Thanks for that experience!

I stayed at Kookaburra Travel Lodge with my boyfriend and our 8 friends, for 2 nights. Upon arriving at the hotel, we were greeted with friendly smiles from the front desk and hotel staff. We stayed in one of the new rooms upstairs called Montezon. Our room consisted of 1 queen bed, 4 single beds, and table and chairs. Our room was very clean, fitted with a flat screen tv and aircon. This room is ideal for a large group like ours. The view from our room was magical, overlooking with trees and the sea behind the hotel. With this room comes a balcony which you can step outside and experience the tranquil sounds and smells of nature.

In the morning, King from the front desk, rang our room to ask what we would like for our breakfast. Within a few minutes, our breakfast was ready! The breakfast is great value considering it's free! Delicious, filling and free; what more can you ask for?! A big breakfast is what you need for a day packed full of adventure around the beautiful places of Palawan.

All of our tours were organised with no hassle. Our El Nido tour which consisted of 3 days and 2 nights, was organised by the hotel staff. Our tour to the Underground River, one of the Seven Wonders of Nature, was also organised by the hotel staff. It is one of the must-sees when going to Palawan! Before travelling to the Underground River, we were toured around Puerto Princesa City. We were filled with facts about the beautiful city.

Overall, our stay in Kookaburra Travel Lodge was AMAZING! We couldn't ask for a better hotel to stay in. I give 2 thumbs up to all of the staff of this amazing hotel! Keep up the wonderful work you do each and every day! Thank you so much for everything! I will definitely come back to Kookaburra Travel Lodge and stay again, maybe longer next time! :)

We stayed in kookaburra for 4d//3n including tour. I found this thru tripadvisor also and i have no regret at all, it's so cheap and very clean,comfortable to stay here. After a very tiring tour you arrived in your relaxing, comfortable room. The location is quite far from the city center but there's a tricycle waiting at the parking whenever you want to go to city center and you can ask king the very kind and accomodating staff there and he's willing to help..To king thank you so much for the kindness and the rest ao the staff.. Job well done!!

Stayed there for 3d/2n. They arranged all our tour packages for from beginning to end. Breakfast was to our satisfaction esp. the tocino. Wifi signal was strong. King assisted us with our dinner options, we had Shakeys deliver to the lodge since we were a bit tired to go out that night. We got hungry at around midnight the next night, Queenie called a trike for us then went to Jollibee since its 24/7. They also gave us tips on the places we were going and they were honest in setting our expectations. The lodge is surrounded by forest while the beach is 5 mins away. Peacful and relaxing.

I pushed through with our travel agency to stay here instead of a backpacker's hotel and I think that it was a great decision because of the very accommodating people there. They promptly answered any queries I had before the trip and I was able to arrange an Underground River Tour with them with no hassle at all! I was quite worried that we won't be able to make the trip because it was at 9am and our flight arrived at 8:40am and sure enough our flight was delayed for a few minutes. When we arrived at the airport, they even had a separate van for us and the Underground River tour van was also there waiting for us. Talk about being able to deliver! Breakfasts were delicious and the rooms were clean (we did find a millipede! but we're in the Philippines so it's quite normal). The shower head in our room had a few holes that weren't working but overall the room was really nice. Wifi signal was strong in our room (first floor on the left side). It was quiet during night time and very peaceful :) Too bad we weren't able to go to the nearby beach. The staff also arranges reservations in the restaurants and trikes also so it's very convenient! Trike rates are higher though so you might want to take a different trike when you get home. Location's a bit far from the main road around 10 minutes but the trike rides are not uncomfortable. I even sat at the back of the motorcycle haha! It is really very near the airport though, less than 5 minutes away!

Overall my Palawan trip was made even more fun because of Kookaburra's awesome service! I'd stay here again :)
