Dos Palmas is your ultimate idyllic beach resort. Or, I should rather say "island" resort as there is nothing else on this island but the hotel (and the staff accommodation). The travel from Puerto Princesa is easy by an AC-d van to the port (25-30 min) and then a 1-our long boat ride to the island. Your are welcomed by... More

I was here 12 years ago, during the infamous Abu Sayyah bruhaha and right after the Rico Yan incident. During that time, the resort was in a much better situation. I stayed at their bay cottage (native house on stilts) and the experience was plainly peaceful. 12 years after, I came back and was excited to be back as my... More

First of all, if you want to go shopping, see things in the neighborhood, this is not for you. This is a " remote" island where you stay in order to relax. And if that is what you need, then this is the place for you (and your family). As it is an island, you must take care that any... More

My husband and 2kids stayed at Dos Palmas for 4days and 3nights. We really enjoyed our stay in the island. You can do a lot of activities in the resort and you wouldnt want to leave. The staff are really nice and very accommodating. We celebrated our daughter's 10th bday here. I was about to buy a bday cake for... More

I stayed here for 1 night and I felt very comfortable. Sunrise and sunset on island is so beautify that you will feel hard to forget. Snorkeling is also great. I did it twice and I wished I could have more time to do it again. However, since this resort is on an isolated island, you will not have much... More

When we arrived we are warmly received by traditional combo and gave us welcome drinks. The water is crystal clear you can sea the seabed, corals and fishes at the bottom. the... More

We spent two days at Dos Palmas in late August 2014, and we had a wonderful experience! From the shuttle to the wharf to the staff on the island to the boat captains and everyone in between, we could not have asked for better service. We arrived in PPC on a Thursday and spent the day sightseeing, so the Dos... More

My husband and I went to dos palmas to have some r&r. And that is exactly what we got. The swimming pool and jacuzzi is relaxing, the beach breath taking. Although is important to mention that you should expect mangroves in SOME areas of the beach. And there are specific areas in the beach where you can swim in. I... More
