I stay at Summer Homes quite regularly and the location is second to none! Eating breakfast whilst sitting in the garden over looking the beach and clear blue sea is a stunning experience not to be missed. Couple that with good clean rooms, good food and extremely friendly and helpful staff and you have a 5 star resort

Hi there, my family stayed at this resort on April 26 as a stop over between Thelma & Toby's Island Camping Adventure at Tandan Beach (30 minutes north) and Puerto Princesa, and it would have been the cleanest and most cared for resort of any that we saw all along the beach front at Port Barton. The rooms were basic... More

Summer Homes was probably the nicest and best cared for place we stayed in this price range on all of Palawan. The rooms are spotless and bathrooms are super nice. Great grounds area, fun tiki like bar that was willing to make whatever cocktail we wanted, and great food. And finally, the staff was hardworking and friendly, which seemed a... More

We rented the cottages with ocean view. Beautiful! Extremely clean room and bathroom. You can hear the ocean all night long, or go into the garden or the front beach and relax there. The restaurant has excellent dishes and amazing variety for a small town. In fact, after trying a few places, we realized that this restaurant was the best... More

We stayed at Summer Homes for 3 nights in March 2013. We paid 700 Peso's for a small double room (not a bungalow) with bathroom. We didn't eat at the restaurant because the menu looked very overpriced. There was free wifi, but the connection was extremely slow.

Summer Homes is a great choice when in Port Barton. The rooms are clean, spacious, and comfortable. The restaurant attached has good food but is a little overpriced. Be prepared for an expensive ride either to/from Puerto Princerra as there is only one bus or jeepney that travels back and fourth. If you miss that, you will have to hire... More

The resort is a great deal. Very good rooms and the best bungalows in front. Brother had a room, we (family with small kid) had bungalow. Bungalow was really the best what you can get for 24€. Nice, clean, cosy room. With ok bathroom. Beautiful terrace with sea view and between the terrace (bungalow) and sea is only nice grass... More

Nice resort in a good location in Port Barton, directly to the beach. The rooms towards inside are of lower quality and I can only rate these. I would always recommend a cottage with sea view, they are of much higher quality. Very friendly and nice staff that is very attentive. All kind of tours and activities are offered there.... More

The hotel is located in the middle of the nice white beach in Port Barton. They offer different kind of rooms and cottages. Price between 700-1500 Peso. In the evening the nicest place for dinner. All in all I can recommend this place

Summer Homes offered the reasonable amenities for a great beach accommodation. SH at Port Barton as the nicest location among the others - accessible by land transport (the public bus San Isidro Express dropped us right off at the entrance), the fine white sand beach is maintained/cleaned daily and great for children playing in the gentle waves in low or...
