“Two Thumbs Up!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013

We stayed here for around 5days this december.. The staff are really very friendly and kind. The rooms are spacious and clean. And they have a restaurant that is over looking at the bay. It is a really nice scene and a great ambiance. The place is lovely. They even have a jacuzzi which you can rent for 2hours at a price of only 500php good for 4persons. I enjoyed my stay here. It's very comfortable and relaxing. Good Job!

Nice, small hotel walking distance to the market and Baywalk. Friendly and efficient staff. Great service and amenities, though WiFi seems to have bandwidth problems during peak hours. Clean and airy 4th floor restaurant with great views of the bay.

Room Tip: Pick a room on the 4-floor wing. They have slightly bigger rooms compared to the rooms at the wing w...

From the minute I arrived at this place I was impressed, my bags were taken, a fresh cold fruit juice was provided at reception and I was quickly shown to my room. The staff were super friendly, big welcoming smiles and helpful with any questions. The rooms are small but compact and made of local materials. No bugs at all and the traditional materials meant it was quite different but cool ! My room had satellite TV, minibar, telephone, WIFI and the A/C and fan ensured my stay was very comfortable. Breakfast was provided on the roof top restaurant and was basic but sufficient. I went on a tour on my last day and was able to leave my bags in the store room and then was facilitated to have a shower upon my return before the free shuttle bus took me to the airport. Puerto Pension punched way above its weight and I felt it offered exceptionally good value for money. I would definitely stay here again !

Located at walking distance from "downtown" Puerto Princesa in a quiet neighborhood near the bay, Puerto Pension is basically a hotel with very small rooms rather than a traditional bed and breakfast. It remains a bargain because the rooms are well-equipped with cable TV and very effective air conditioning and fan (I found the fan made the room comfortable). The mattress was firm and gave a wonderful night's sleep. Staff speaks excellent English and is extremely helpful. Also helpful was the policy of smoking only on the outside verandas, which has the added benefit of helping you to meet the other guests. I was there while a typhoon was ravaging the central provinces of the Philippines--very little impact on Palawan--and met 20-somethings from Switzerland and Canada, and a Filipino expert on tuna fisheries: a very fun and outgoing clientele. One caution for older or mobility-restricted travelers: the breakfast room/restaurant is a room with a great view of the bay on the fourth floor, but there is no elevator. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner and has a good selection of Filipino dishes at a reasonable price. Definitely worth a return visit during the dry season (spring).

We stayed at Puerto Pension for 3 nights. It was a great experience. Nice and clean room. Very friendly staff and so helpful. Free airport service! Breakfast is good and you can choose from continental to filippino breakfast (try Langonisa!). We will come back again!

The hotel is small and has a welcoming family atmosphere with friendly,helpful English speaking staff. The rooms are clustered round a central garden and there is a roof top restaurant/bar with a view over the bay. All areas of the hotel were clean and well maintained. The breakfast included with the room was good and could be upgraded for a nominal amount to include a big selection of western and philippino foods, all cooked to order. There is a free shuttle from/to the airport and AC & cable TV in the rooms. It is situated close to the Bay Walk esplanade with many food & drink stalls at night. My single room was a bit small but comfortable and adequate. I would stay here again if I return to Puerto Princesa.
