We have been to places like this before. If you are expecting a plush four star resort like I was, it’s important to tone your expectations down to a 3* level and then adjust again for amenities. Here are the highlights, lowlights and random thoughts, in no particular order. Its an hour by boat from the west end of Palowan.... More

I was pleasantly surprised that Dos Palmas made significant improvements since my last visit a few years ago. They have improved beach huts, day beds, a picnic/buffet area, etc. We were lucky to have scheduled a day tour when only 3 other couples did, so we pretty much had all the amenities to ourselves - snorkeling, kayaking, beach, etc. We...

Landed in PPS airport in the night and stayed overnight in PPS in a different hotel and headed here in the morning from the wharf, they have fixed timing for the boat transfer so make sure your arrive here on time, else you need to wait for another 2 hrs.

I stayed at Dos Palmas for a night. It's a huge place and at first I was disappointed that my room was quite far from the lobby or front office. Then I realized bikes were available everywhere for you to use. Nobody told me on the orientation which they give when you first arrive on the island. What I liked... More

We stayed here during the long weekend in June. We arrived at Puerta Princessa airport at 6.20 am so it was an early start. The hotel van was waiting for us at the airport and took us to the pier. Be prepared for a bit of a wait at the office there while they check everyone in but all went... More

I availed of Dos Palmas' Day Tour for the price of 1800/pax but I must say that I got more than what I paid for. First, the travel from the wharf to the Island itself was smooth sailing and really kept up to its promise of being a 2-hr ride (I'm quite meticulous with "time promises") Then seeing the island's...

The island signage/tarp displays reflect their compliance with government safety standards and on hindsight show their care for island hoppers. Food served delights all. The ambiance relaxes the mind and even one's soul.
