Palanca Guest House

Reviewed July 31, 2012

the rooms and the bathroom were very small. it was very cramped. we reserved the twin sharing room but when we saw it, we knew it was only good for 1 person. we ended up using the triple sharing room instead.

This is your basic guest house in a provincial town in the Palawan province in the Philippines. The rooms are small, basic and clean. The AC works well and there is only a cold water shower. But in this hot and humid environment, I did not miss the hot water. The proprietor, Dianne, is a great host. She took care of all my package island tours and transfers to the airport. All services were delivered on time and with precision. The location of the guest house is very convenient to the town dock where all the boat tours start. It is also a block away from the town market, so for the adventurous, incredible fresh seafood can be had at a great price.

Just note on local eateries, there are very few restaurants that I would rate as tourist class. La Sirenetta is a good choice. Stay away from the eatery next to the entrance to Palanca's.

Coron offers incredible experiences, go in with an open heart and Coron will provide a once in a lifetime journey.

Nice courtyard, the rooms facing the courtyard are very quiet and therefore much appreciated. Cold shower only but it is not really needed. All rooms are colourful and very clean (the guest house was open only a few months ago), with fan and A/C, TV (not needed either but it seems they like TV in Philippines ;)) Friendly staff and traditional Filipino breakfast available.

Room Tip: Ask to be in a room facing the courtyard, not on the street
