Palanca Guest House
Ranked #20 of 70 Coron B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 3, 2013

Palanca guest house is well located in the small and dusty Coron. It offers a fair price per night. Breakfast is available for 100 peso per dish and involves one egg (scrambled or fried), plain or fried rice, and some protein (beef tapa, fish, etc.).

The room was pretty average. On the positive side it had air-con. The bed was comfortable. The negatives included roaches out in the open when returning on 2/3 nights. The shower is cold and super weak. If you are making out to Coron though, these things are more or less expected.

We stayed 4days 3nights in Palanca Guest House and I shall say it was rather comfortable and we felt at home. Ms. Dianne Palanca is so accomodating, every request, granted. Every questions, answered, she did not hide any details like the power interruptions every evening in Coron town so we are prepared. She arranged our itinerary which was very wonderful, she made sure that our 3 days are not so strenous and is fun-filled from day1 to day3, she also suggested some places we can visit on our 4th day. She even accompanies her guest on Island tours if needed. Minor details: The room needs to have a place where we can hang our towels. But overall, it was excellent.

We stayed in the standard room. It was really small. We enter directly to the bed, and there is a bathroom on the side.
Pros:
1) Near coron town, jetty, market etc etc.
2) Owner is really nice and sweet.
3) You have an open terrace for drying the clothes, which is really good to have in a beach destination.

Cons:
1) Standard room is really small and crampy.
2) There might be power cuts, and you will have to adjust with the table fan then (no A.C). When we stayed, for 1 night the power was not there. We had to open the windows and there were lot of mosquitoes as well.

Room Tip: The other rooms which we happen to see are bigger than this. But, unfortunately we had booked the st...

Very clean, well located guest house. Staff very friendly and helpful. Our room was quiet if a little small and we struggled to find space to hang clothing and towels. Concrete construction means it can be rather warm in the afternoons and evenings. Improvements could be made by providing better quality, larger towels. My partner would have liked hot water but I felt the cold shower was fine in this climate. Overall this is a nice little guest house but a little over priced.

It's like a home away from home~! The toilets and rooms were clean and the staff were friendly and accommodating! The owner Ms Dianne was soooo nice (and pretty)! Only selected rooms have hot showers so better request that when you want it. We stayed in the room without one but the water that comes out of the faucet is already warm so you don't actually need the hot shower ^^. Cable TV, air conditioned rooms, all-you-can-drink coffee for free. I think the money we paid was worth it.

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.
