We spent 4 days in Remari Pension.
The room are confortable and clean at a very cheap price.
The hotel arranged everything for us: excursions to the underground river, permit, zip line, city tour...
They also gave us good advices on shopping area and restaurants.
The staff is very friendly and the owner, Rene, is very nice.
In addition, the location is perfect: close to the shops and nightlife.

Best location, best staff, cheap price. I will definitely recommend it!

We stayed there for 2 nights only from November 17 to 18, 2012. The staff were very accomodating, clean rooms, working hot and cold shower with cable tv and wifi. The rooms facing the garden were actually refreshing. It is also within the city and very near the airport and most recreational establishments. A walk away from major kinabuch and jollibee. It has also a convenience store downstairs.

I stayed in one of their economy rooms - this was recommended by the receptionist when I called so I took it - and it was nearly terrible. Yes, that was an economy room and the rate was less than a thousand pesos per night but regardless of the amount, there should still be a value on every purchase.

The economy rooms are on a separate wing from the other, better, rooms. The structure was made of wood and I always had the impression that it may collapse any time! The room faced head-on with the might sun in the morning. The shower was broken, the water bucket was very dirty that I had to scrub it first before using to make it tolerable for use, water supply was weak, and believe me, the entire rest room vibrates everytime I have a heavy step! The aircon's knobs/control panel was intentionally tampered - I assume to control its power usage.

Their semi-open air restaurant/bar downstairs was dirty. Dust in the table, flies, and 2 monkeys tied to a cage on one end. There's also a big bird - a specie of an eagle or falcon I guess. That is a sanitation crime. The food was also below average. Prices of goods are overly priced. Take note that just outside there is a small grocery store.

What I only appreciated in here was their good internet service. Though you have to stay at the lobby to connect. Another thing was the friendliness of their staff. I can't say that they are professionals because that would be an overstatement but they are friendly and accommodating nevertheless. And they have a free airport service. Lastly, the pension house is located in the center of the city proper.

Room Tip: If you have no choice or deliberately choose to stay here, please don't take the economy rooms...

The Remari ruined our stay on Palawan. We booked a economy room which is of terrible quality. On booking.com you see the outside of the expensive rooms, but the economy rooms are a separate wing made of wood: Real budget. When someone walks along late at night or early in the morning, the whole construction starts to shake, including your bed. Since the mattress is only 5 cm thick and the karaoke clangs at 8 o’clock in the morning through the backyard its impossible to sleep. With our tours already booked we were forced to upgrade to an overpriced twin room, which had a broken shower and a mosquito net in the window was too much to ask for this price.

The service is bad. The receptionist’s English is beginner’s level. The receptionist would book us a tour/permit to the underground river within 4 days. The day in advance we figured out she didn’t arrange anything at all, so we missed the underground river tour on our last day. The worst part was that in the end the receptionist didn’t even apologize but rather made it seem our fault. Personally this hostel was one of my worst experiences concerning service and room quality during a two month travel on the Philippines.

Room Tip: Don't take the economy rooms. All the others don't offer value for money. Front: Traffic may...

I love the place because its in the heart of the city just a walk away from the establishments and just a minute away from the provincial capitol. Wherever you wanna go, market.. tiangge or the mall and restaurants you just have to hop in a tricy and pay 8 pesos so cheap or if you want just a few minutes walk and you'll fin yourself in the different restaurants and fastfoods. I highly recommend the staff, they're so accommodating :) they even accompanied us to the tiki restobar which is just a few steps away from the hotel.

This place is located at the center of Puerto Princesa, Walking distance from Jolibee, and Chow King. Theres a convience store on the first floor, a salon, and an outdoor restaurant. Great food. As soon as you wake up in the morning food is already served. its worth the price. I would definitely stay there again, and again, and again. I love it.

Room Tip: Choose the front side balcony Beautiful view.
