“I love Raq!”
Reviewed September 13, 2011

If you have heard a Bossanova Sound at their lounge or resto area you might ask who gave it? lol.. I gave them my new bossanova cd because I found their resto needs a calming sound that suits their cabin lodges. But, when we were at the Garden they asked us to transfer to 2nd floor with the biggest room :) It was great! it was September or Ocober 2009 when we last visited Raq Pensionne. It is indeed cheapest Inn and a lovely to stay. You might want to eat in fine dine resto, they are just besides Legend Hotel.

The guard is so friendly and even take care of us when we go out late. Definitely would love to visit and rent a room again.

Room Tip: choose the room in the building not in the garden.

We went to PPS last Sept 06-08 with my fiance' and were glad that we choose RAQ Pensionne for our accommodation and tours. There services was absolutely great with regards to accommodation, tour services and for the staff they always had a smile in their face.
Thank you Ms. Mae and Ms, Shayne for the warm accommodating and to our tour guide and van driver Kuya Jairuis, Kuya Rey and Kuya Lito and to the tricycle driver Kuya Rodel and to other tricycle driver that we forgot to asked his name thank you.
See you next time we're back there to try the main attraction the UR and Ugong Rock

my recent trip in palawan with friend, ann, would not be as wonderful as it was without raq pensionne...everything was great, from the accommodation, food, service, staff and especially the assistance offered by the owner, Mae... she was very helpful that we really enjoyed the tours and the gastronomic adventures --- she organized it all for us... KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK and THANK YOU VERY MUCH esp to mae for making our stay worth remembering for a lifetime

We've been there last july 13 t 17. I've been noticed that all staff are very accomodating,clean rooms, souvenier items every trip, nice breakfast and the ambiance outside of our room (garden) wow "love it" ...And also people at puerto princesa are nice ... Walking on the street at midnight is safe... This is the best vacation for us as a couple ... Sulit talaga... My husband and i planning to go back next year... Hope to see you again.. More Power!

stayed there for 4 days, & i had a great time! they got courteous and friendly staff who always had a smile on their faces, always available and ready to help. they are always on time, from airport pick up to daily activities and other transportation services. i like the welcome drinks! really made me feel welcome! breakfast is great! they serve it according to your preferred schedule. snacks for every trip are included. they make appointments at restaurants for you and they bring you there. they give you souvenirs for every tour, and they assist you with everything you need!
the rooms are clean, as well as the restroom. although, the supplies were not regularly refilled (like the toilet paper) - but its no big deal, you can always call the front desk and ask for it and they will bring it to you room. good air conditioning system and water heater for the shower, although the restroom wasn't cleaned on a daily basis.
the location is perfect, easy transportation like the tricycle, when you want to go the market or tiannge, etc.
can't say much about the wifi, i was there on vacation! not to check on my facebook anyway :D
had so much fun! relaxing ambiance! perfect for the family! a highly recommended place! :)
