Great Breakfast
pros: Our room was spacious. There was plenty of room for all four luggage bags we brought. I especially liked the small little touches like having a tall mirror attached to a clothes closet. The wifi was fast and the property was spacious. I enjoyed walking around the garden and seeing all the flowers. The place is especially nice at night with all the Christmas-like lights lighting up the trees. They had a nice kids playground too. I also loved the huge pool. My favorite thing though has to be the pancake breakfast. I couldn't persuade any of the filipinos with me to order it. They stuck with the filipino breakfast every time. I hear it was delicious too. It was nice to listen to the water fall sculpture while we eat. The pension house is also located 2 minutes from two really great restaurants. "Ka Inato" and "DJ Balcony and Restro" were both great choice for dinner. Also it was only 10 minutes to Robinson's mall. Lastly it was a great place to sleep because it was quite at night. cons: The hot water shower was too hot on the first night. No matter what setting I changed it to, I couldn't get it the right temperature. It was a little better the next night after they fixed it. I would have liked the bathroom to be a little bigger. Like most of the pension houses in Puerto you leave the paved road and go down a dirt road for a minute or less. Those dirt roads quickly become a muddy road. Also most of the dirt roads could use better lighting. Hopefully the city improves both the roads and lighting.

Stayed for 3days and 2nights Location: A bit far from the main city Room: It was ideal for family and big groups, very spacious. Wifi and television was not working every morning. We had to approach a staff to fix it. Hot shower was also not working. Signal of the television was bad. Airport transportation & Breakfast: 3 thumbs up!! :) We just ask if there's available fried fish for breakfast and they made it possible. Thank you very much for that! They also serve fruits. Thanks to the owner who drove the van to the airport. She was very accommodating. Guest service: They allow us to have a late check out without any charges. Swimming pool: It was bad. There were a lot of flies and dirt swimming around. My dad initiate to clean it,so we can swim. The staff saw my dad, but they never stopped him neither helped him.

Well taken-cared of, but certainly not a 5!
It was a spur-of-the-moment trip so we decided on Michelle Pension House based on the consistency of TripAdvisor reviews. This is a small budget hotel, trying their best to provide every guest the “home-away-from-home” feeling. All my emails/text messages were promptly replied to by Noemi. Free airport transfer is provided. We did not experience any hassle from the time Aris picked us up at the airport. Upon arrival, he was nice enough to pass by Badjao Restaurant (near airport) so we can reserve for lunch before our first tour. Tita, the owner, is an amusing lady. She entertains guests while doing chores at night and early morning. She personally prepared our breakfast, her assistant Noemi asked what we wanted a day before. She added breakfast surprises, like dried fish (tuyo) and fried bananas. One afternoon, steamed sweet potatoes were waiting for us after a tour. Tita operates her own tour company, so a hotel + tours package was convenient especially for an unplanned, first trip to Puerto Princesa. We had the pleasure of exploring the sites everyday with Rose, our very energetic and experienced tour guide. Tita/Noemi also did the reservations for our dinner at Kalui (another review). However, there are some cons and much to improve on. First, location is a bit far from the city center (where the good restaurants are) so trike fares are additional costs, really expensive especially at night when trikes charge a premium; not to mention the inconveniences of cramp space, bumpy ride and safety concern of a long trike ride through the highway. Expect heavy traffic going in and out of the city on weekdays especially during rush hour. I observed there are many budget accommodations near the airport/city center. We had tours everyday, visitors do not need expensive accommodation. Towels/soaps were not ready for the confirmed number of persons; no problem our requests were immediately given. Towels smelled clean, fresh from the laundry shop; the texture was a little coarse though. Toiletries include only a small soap and tissue rolls (not an issue, it's always good to bring own brand). The pillow is too thin, almost no texture. The aircon plus ceiling fan cannot make our room cold enough, but relatives in another room said theirs is OK. Hot water temperature is not adjustable and pressure is low. My actual rating would have been a 3.5. Would I recommend it to friends, yes of course!

Michelle Pension Review
Greetings from Canada! Our stay at Michelle Pension was one that we will never forget. The staff was absolutely amazing and accommodated all of our needs. The owner/manager, nicknamed "Tita" makes you feel right at home, even picking us up at the airport herself. Noemi (front desk associate) and Arish (our travel guide) went above and beyond and made our trip worthwhile, so please look for them when you book! The only minor issue was that the wifi was sometimes slow and disconnected but over all, we enjoyed our stay and would love to come back! Thank you Michelle Pension & staff!

Value for money!
Great service. Highly recommended!!! My in-laws will be there this July. It's like staying with a very hospitable relative. Food is great. Had a very intimate vacation with my wife. We'll try to visit Tita again soon.
