Dad's my bet”
I've been to so many hotels, pemsion houses and inns in various destinations in the Philippines but this is one of the best place I will consider anytime... The owners are very considerate especially at the time that our flight was moved to a latter hour. They allowed us to have extra hours of stay in our room, isn't that great and very considerate... The staff are likewise accommodating... The place is conducive to various parts of Puerto princesa... Two thumbs up for this place!!!

They provided excellent service to us! Thank you:)”
PROS: -free airport pickup -clean rooms -accessible from the airport (we even walked from the City Baywalk park to the hotel one night. It was in a safe neighbourhood.) -nice tv with cable channels -good room airconditioning -with balcony view -helpful owners -very accommodating staff -they have a bakery downstairs -reasonable van rental fee -reasonable underground tour fee (they offered a discount for our family of 6) -provided extra towels -complimentary breakfast -free water!! (There's a hot & cold water dispenser on each floor. No need for us to buy bottled water outside.) -nice viewing deck at the top floor where daily breakfast is being served Our stay was amazing! They went out of their way to provide excellent service..like that one time when Ka Lui Restaurant required reservation and we were running late, so they had to call the restaurant again and requested to wait for us. The restaurant agreed but until 8:30pm only, so the owner's son asked their van driver to send us to the place WITHOUT any charge. Thank you again for that!! And the owner, Mrs. Mendoza, has always been humble and helpful. She provided lots of recommendations to me and my parents. And even helped in our request to obtain some 'daing.' CON: slower wifi during nighttime (sometimes, it doesn't reach our room. I have to go down the lobby.) Despite the slower wifi at night though, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dad's Bayview to anyone who is planning to make a trip to Puerto Princesa. Very much worth it! Thank you so much to the Mendoza family! God bless u all!

Poor value. "Family run" and "like home" do not mean what you think.”
Summary: Don't expect fulfillment of the "free airport transfers by van" promise, but do expect to be greeted on arrival at Dad's Bayview Pension by a ya-ya and crying baby; neither of which seem aware this is supposed to be a business. In the case of this pension, the "Family run" and "like home" monikers, apparently relevant for other reviewers, do not mean what you might think! To be fair, when things were requested, they were usually provided. But everything is so very basic, utilitarian and Filipino. The "bay view" was over the neighbours drying area and hollow-block wall. All of this would be fine if the room rate through Agoda were not so over-priced. Friends stayed at a nice "resort" style hotel near the airport, with pool, for just 60% of what I paid for this quirky place with thin foam mattresses and a 4-floor walk-up for the Filipino breakfast. Likes: Tickling the baby's chin for a laugh. Building, furnishings and appliances are basic, but still fresh (2016). Young lady staff are sweet trying to their best, but without any prior training. Yikes: Battle-axe lady-in-charge, who could not ever muster grace or a smile. Placement of power points makes recharging difficult. Miniscule flat-screen TV with hopelessly limited channels. Dodgy WiFi. Tips: Shop around. There is tremendously better value for money than this unmanaged building. -- end --

Solid, just one issue with miscommunication.”
layout of the hotel, location, airport free transfer
Great looking spot. Rooms were nice and clean. We couldn't figure out the hot water but didn't really ask as the cold showers felt nice. The roof is a great spot for breakfast and hanging out in the evening. The only issue was that we got in and had the staff book us a tour for the fireflies that night. We were told to be ready by a certain time, and when we were there, we were told we got booked on the tour for the next day at a different time. It was a possible lost in translation but the explanation didn't make full sense. Thankfully, Angelica, a supremely sweet and helpful staff member, got us a ride down to the fireflies that evening. We were happy with that but not with the initial reaction of "oh sorry, just do it tomorrow instead." Otherwise very good and I'd stay here again.

Nice place”
friendly staff, location, cleanliness
Close to the main street, however far enough away so that you aren't bothered by noise. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately my daughter was sick so couldn't do much exploring, however you can book tours through the front desk and they are very willing to help with places to see and things to do. One night we walked down to Baywalk for dinner and one of the staff walked with us to show us the way. Breakfast on the rooftop was nice, lovely view of the water. Some people might complain about the nearby slums as ruining the view, however in a developing country that has to be expected, and personally they did not ruin the view at all. Great place to stay, very clean.

Best value for money”
Friendly staff and owners, great location, and great price.
The owners and staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. My boyfriend was sick for the whole duration of our stay and they helped us find treatment. They also arranged all of our tours and assisted with refunds when we couldn't continue due to my boyfriend's illness. I would recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat.

Dad's Bayview Pension”
Very good customer service! The price is affordable and the place is clean. Also accessible to the market, baywalk and airport. ☺😊
Our stay at the pension is worth the trip. We were treated as if we were visiting friends and not just opportunity to earn profit. We were advised on the best way to visit places and best routes within our budget. You can request to have your food prepared by the staff or you can go the market yourself and they will cook it for you. Even tried their best to accommodate last minute requests. Thank you sir Alex of Dad's Bayview Pension. We enjoyed our stay.☺
