Palm Bay resort is definitly worth the drive to the location. Don`t be misled when they tell you that there is still a certain amount to be paid or the drive needs to be paid, keep smiling and show them your voucher which should contain all information, but don`t budge. Before you leave for the drive to the hotel ,... More

Palm Bay Resort has fantastic potential but it is ill managed. We stayed for 8 nights and we called it the Philippine Fawlty Towers and we have had several laughs. The staff is very nice and the management totally absent, as are the most of the food. There is no other option to eat in the middle of the jungle.... More

I stayed here for roughly a week on holiday and the staff were absolutely amazing. They were able to help us book tours, drive us into town, run errands, and pick us up at the airport. The resort is situated along a nice deserted beach, nestled among gorgeous mountains with a waterfall not far away, and the comfortable rooms from... More

it is the perfect beach getaway - surrounded by stunning nature. very attentive warm-hearted service. food was very good, fresh fish right from the sea was available all the time. loud lawn cutting shud be done, when no guests are in house.... - other than that my most favourite beach resort ever !!

We stayed there over new year with friends and kids. First the good thing: The location is great, nice and deserted beach. However: Tranfer was forgotten by the guys who ran the place that time - we had to organize a 4x4 transport on our own, otherwise we would not have reached the place (to phone reception over there) Then...

After arriving to the resort, which is about two hours drive from puerto princesa, we met a very friendly staff, nice bed in small cottages on the beach, and a very relaxing atmosphere. There is not much to do there, beside relaxing on the private beach, hence this is what you should come here for! It is far from the... More

I had a great time at this resort! The staff was very friendly and always helpful. What it lacks in amenities it makes up for in beautiful and peacefulness. If you are looking for a quiet relaxing getaway then I highly recommend Palm bay.
