I'm the husband of the previous review and I'll try to detail a little bit more on what she mentioned. On arrival to the resort, we were greeted by a very friendly staff. The owner (Edo) also greeted us and seemed very friendly. They gave us a sheet of the prices for excursions and cost of other things like rentals... More

Me and my husband decided to book our honeymoon at dolarog for 7 nights. Initially we loved the place, great location, nice looking rooms but then one thing led to another. I read a review earlier that said their food is "off high quality". That's a LIE. For breakfast the toast is always burnt (we had breakfast there for 4... More

Hi Ma’am, In 25 years of Dolarog we never heard any complained about our breakfast. For the bread we baked our own (homemade) Of course is white inside and brown outside. We don’t use tasty bread. FISH- I’m sorry to hear that but you ordered Filipino breakfast with dried fish (understood it’s salty). You should have known that because you... More

Dolarog was my home for 3 days. The resort is far from the noise and crowds of the town, very quiet and serene. The "huts" were comfortable and artfully selected. Slatted wooden walls and big windows let natural light and sea breeze in. Each hut has a huge veranda in front, complete with hammock and seating area. The beds were... More

After 6yrs. I am finally back in El Nido but this time with my soon to be husband. We chanced upon this beautiful retreat haven in some brochures and decided to try it for a night, but we ended up staying for more nights! The ambiance is surreal - it brought us real privacy and bliss! The food were superb... More

We have spent amazing 4 days in Dolarog! After travelling around Philippines and visiting few places on Palawan we decided to take a rest in this little paradise away from any town or village. The hotel is situated near Dolarog Beach at the shore where you may get only by boat. A charming scenery of the resort and its surroundings... More

I am thankful for the nice reception of the resort. Edo and his staff are all welcoming, nice and helpful. I was happy with the overall cleanliness of the resort thought some guest who might be so critical might not agree. Electricity is limited because the supply is only due to generator set own by the resort. This is the... More

Having read the various reviews here on trip advisor we booked to stay at Dolarog with a little trepidation. We needn't have worried....From the moment we arrived our stay was punctuated with smiling willingness and competency. One should remember that nothing happens too promptly in The Philippines and isn't that the joy of stepping out of the rat race for... More

When reading the many bad reviews, and since we could not find any better available option, I thought: "how bad can u go with a $250 (!!!!!) a night..?". The location is absolutely amazing. Can't think of a better way to describe it. Rooms decent at most. Staff are very nice warm and greeting, although I have to add (unfortunately)... More

The Garden room was dark and humidit. Very big but very spacious. No water between 10-4 am.( couldn't have a shower after the beach) A similar room another hotel would be around 700 pesos. Even though it was so big, the resorts answer to my request for an extra bed for my daughter in the room was refused. Wonderful garden... More

I am surprised that people can criticise when staying in such a beautiful spot! Seriously people! The beauty of the place is the rustic feel - the porch areas of the bungalows complete with hammocks are lovely. The included boat tours (complete with all snorkelling gear) each day really make it - so much better than using the operators in... More
