The family that run this place make it! The rooms are fine- ac and fan, tv and hot and cold shower. Breakfast is 100 pesos - we only had it twice so I can't comment too much but the two we had were good. The hot shower isn't so strong, in fact it was so weak that we didn't bother... More

Close to everything. Markets restaurants all in walking distance. So glad we found this place. Great price especially because other hotels are pretty average in... More

Months before our trip Ms Dianne is already very accommodating with my inquiries and reservations for tour. Breakfast is good (Filipino Style) for P100/meal only its with coffee already. You can also book directly tours from Palanca Guest House which is hassle free. Will be back soon!

Visited this place and we were very fortunate that there was a room available, as it was the peak season. The room was clean, and we had clean towels every morning. The service was good, nothing special but the staff made ordinary things extra ordinary by always reaching out and smiling when ever they see us. We will return next... More

The guesthouse is in the center of the town so the jetty port, the market, stores, restaurants and souvenir shops are all just a stone throw away from the guesthouse entrance. They serve breakfast, staff are friendly and accomodating. There is free wi-fi. They also have generator set in case of power outage which is common in Coron town. The... More

The place was booked for us through a travel operator, so we didn't know what to expect. The room was very small with only one small window towards the breakfast room. Tiny bathroom with cockroaches and barely working shower. Stay away if you can.

My partner booked this hotel for 10 days last April 16 onward. The rate is quite good because we booked it online through agoda.
