We stayed at Tres Pension for 1 night in one of their double rooms for 1.200 peso. Later we discovered that the standard room we got for this price is actually only 1.000 peso. So it's not reccomendable booking through Agoda!
The room we had was fine. Good bed, working AC, a small couch and enough space to put down our luggage. No mosquito net though, so we hung our own since in this area it can't really be prevented getting mosquitos in the room, even when you shut the door quickly. The bathroom was small and had only a cold shower. Outside our door we had a table with chairs.
Since our flight to Puerto Princesa got cancelled last minute, we could not stay for the night we booked and had already payed for through Agoda. When we called Tres Pension to inform them about this, they were not really helpful at working out a solution and their attitude was not very hospitable. They were certainly not considering a refund and they did not offer any possibilities for us to stay with them another night. In the end they finally offered that we could stay with them the next night, which meant we had to make other arrangements with the guesthouse we had already booked for this night. This made it quite a hassle for us.
The location is a bit far-off. This makes it a quiet place though. The breakfast that was included was ok. Just some slices of bread with jam and butter, a banana and a "juice" (syrup actually).
What caught our attention was the sheet with house rules that was placed quite prominently on the wall in our room. Of course every guesthouse should have house rules for everyone's benefit, but they way they put it here did not make us feel like we were in a holiday place, rather a strictly disciplined youth camp. There was an endless list of things you were obliged or not allowed to do, which acts were printed underlined, bold, in caps-lock and some even in red. This made it appear to us that they wanted to state very clearly from the beginning that are not willing to go that extra mile to make sure their guests have a good stay.
Overall we had a good night's sleep here, but we enjoyed our stay at Subli Guest Cabins later that week so much more. We feel that Tres Pension has potential, but needs to reconsider their hospitality management.
