We didn't feel like dukes and duchesses when we walked in Duchess Pension. Nobody greeted us "Your Grace." Nobody carried our bags for us. And we all crammed into a 5–person room. But that is not Duchess Pension's fault. We chose to stay in a pension house after all, not a 5–star hotel. And we are not complaining.

Please excuse our mess

Duchess Pension met our simple needs: a clean room with a clean toilet. Our five–person room had a working air conditioner and a TV. The rate of Php 1750 also included breakfast. A very good deal.

The pension house at the time of our visit was quiet. It was either low season or everyone was out enjoying the sights and sounds of the island, such as the Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center, Palawan Museum, Honda Bay, and Underground River (to name a few), which the pension house can also arrange for its guests.
