. . . Claude would say . . about life on Palawan. After 5 of the most enjoyable days I've ever spent anywhere, I heartily agree. In fact, I'd like to become his neighbor someday. As for the Mangrove resort, look no further if you want a real vacation, a real experience, a different experience from the typical resort. You'll... More

I spent 4 nights there and i can say it's the best place I've never been! The staff is really really nice and the food is just amazing. Claude, the candadian-french owner, is full of informations and knowledge about anything. If you would like to be close to the nature, it's definitely the place to stay. You can see the... More

This is a true piece of paradise. Nested in the jungle along the Langogan river, this is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the real Palawan. Our room (family bungalow) was big and clean. We went on a day trip snorkelling, fishing with people from the village, eating our fish on the beach, and another day on a cruise... More

Two hours drive from loud and murky Puerto, this place is a paradise for nature and people- lovers . The rooms are nice, the location is grand- over looking a river and a piece of the jungle, but without a doubt the highlight is the local staff and the people of Langogan. friendly, polite and welcoming. Claude and marychu organize... More

All of the previous reviews making reference to the owners exceptional hospitality are 100% accurate ! That is the first and probably most important aspect of staying at this resort. Claude and Marichu are genuine, good people whose sole intention seems to be to just look after their guests. Claude is a complete nature enthusiast, and whilst keen to impart... More

My family and I went this Easter to Palawan and stayed one night at Mangrove Resort. We were heading to El Nido the day after, and decided to take a short stop in Langogan before travelling long hours by bus until our destination. Claude and his wife were the best hosts ever! We lost our luggages on the arrival at... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the Mangrove Resort. The staff is wonderful. The place is comfortable and absolutely not touristic. Exactly what I was looking for, authenticity. I traveled alone and it's the perfect place to relax while discovering the local fauna and flora through the mangrove's wildlife and the Langogan's village. I am now looking forward to come... More
