Last week, I was in Puerto Princesa City with fellow travel bloggers to checkout Robinsons Place Palawan and explore the natural wonders the City is known for. As a group, we had good expectations about this Mall since each one of us loves Robinsons Malls in Manila although we have our own favorite. Before I share to you our Adventures and Food Trips in Puerto Princesa, let me share to you first my review about Robinsons Place Palawan.
Robinsons Place Palawan
Forgot to bring flip flops? Toiletries or Sunblock? Worry no more, you can now shop and find anything in just one roof! Robinsons Place Palawan is a one stop Mall where you can find everything you need just like your favorite Robinsons Place Mall in Manila.
Electronic Shops in Robinsons Place Palawan
Robinsons Place was quite easy to locate as it was just a 15-minute drive away from the airport, bus station and sea port of Puerto Princesa. The Mall also offers a free shuttle service from and to the Mall which is available only from Monday to Thursday from 10:00am to 8:00pm. This 15 hectare mall is a perfect hangout place for people after a busy tour day. Our group had a chance to tour around the mall and maximize our time by seeing almost all the popular outlets inside Robinsons Place in Palawan.
Before starting our half day tour in Robinsons place, I had searched for some reviews about this place to find out what are the key factors which attracted the majority of the tourists and locals in Palawan. The stunning interiors and ambiance offered by this place is quite impressive.
Robinsons Appliance Center
Located 10 kilometers north of Puerto Princesa city proper along the old national highway, the mall is accessible to all types of transportation such as tricycle, multicab, bus, jeepney and cars.
Robinsons Supermarket Palawan
This is the 31st in the Robinsons mall chain and the first and largest full service mall in the province of Palawan. Just like Robinsons Malls in Metro Manila, this Mall in Palawan is also spacious and easy to navigate. For this reason, people loves to hang out with their friends and family in Robinsons Place in Palawan even when they do not have any shopping plans.
CDR King Palawan
I was quite shocked by seeing the crowd in Robinsons place and in the first instance, I had doubts about the availability of a proper and safe parking space. But to my surprise, this place has huge parking spots involving separate entrance and exit driveways.
Robinsons Movieworld Palawan
The air conditioned and stunning mall interiors make this place a perfect gathering space for many locals as well as tourists. I was very much excited by the sight of a 4-plex theater (including 3D theaters) for watching Hollywood and Filipino movies towards the 4th floor in this mall. In fact, we even had plans to watch a movie but we just decided to have a rest after our whole day of touring the Puerto Princesa Underground River. Aside from the Robinsons Movie World, I also cited a spa and salon center in the 4th floor of the Mall.
Robinsons Place in Palawan also has Robinsons Department Store, Robinsons Department Store, Robinsons Supermarket, Robinsons Appliances, Robinsons Movie World, Toys R Us and The Handyman Hardware Store. I was quite thrilled by the whole ambiance of Robinsons Place at Palawan which hosts fashion boutiques, banks, specialty shops, gadgets shops, 300 seat food court, amusement center, al fresco dining outlets and a lot more attractions.
Divine Sweets in Robinsons Place Puerto Princesa
Would you believe this mall has one of the biggest CDR King outlet Ive ever seen? I had found many specialty restaurants or dining spaces inside the mall offering ethnic Japanese, American, Italian, Persian and even ranging to special Mexican cuisines to customers.
There are a number of other fast food chains and coffee shops in this mall where we tried some cakes and Pastas that is famous in Palawan. Next time you visit Puerto Princesa, go to Robinsons Place Palawan and try Divine Sweets. This coffee shop serves the best cheesecake, coffee, tea and they also serve Pasta and Rice Meals.
Towards the other side of the Mall, I got a stunning view of the City in a Forest through glass windows. With its proximity to GoHotels Puerto Princesa, and soon to open Yellow Cab Pizza, Robinsons Place Palawan is now my favorite hangout place in Puerto Princesa. Till my next visit:)
