An island resort about 1 hours boat ride from Puerto Princessa, Palawan. What a magnificent spot. White fine sand beaches, scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking & so much more. I even got to swim with & feed Nemo, or at least his bros & sisters & cousins. This place is a real treasure & the food at lunch was magnificent. One... More

From the little special things they did like making love birds out of coconut leaves, to setting up a special place by the pool each day, the staff at Dos Palmas made our stay very enjoyable and refreshing! Their friendliness, patience in answering questions, and service was wonderful. We were fortunate to be there in March before school break so... More

The beach villas are well equipped and spacious. they had construction at this time but it was not really disturbing and i think... More

My partner and I stayed at Dos Palmas for one night. We were staying in Puerto Princesa for 7 days with family and decided to have a romantic break away a night. It was very relaxing and was nice for 1,2 or 3 nights but couldn't stay any longer than that as there isn't much else to do on the... More

If you want a stress free getaway vacation then this is the place! Great place, fascinating view (sunrise & sunset) and nice friendly staff. Didn't like the beach for swimming thou but the pool was awesome. Very limited activities offered, i suggest a movie night perhaps since there is no tv in the rooms and some activities for kids.. Food... More

We booked for a 2d/1n stay and it was like we are in paradise. The place, staff, food(especially the breakfast buffet) and activities were beyond what we expected.. we'll definitely stay again here.. hopefully they will be done with the renovation by then..

The boat ride to the island is quite long and we encountered choppy waters- sea legs are required! On arrival we were slightly disappointed by our room and the state of the resort. They have definitely done a good job at marketing it- the photos are quite different to the reality and it looks like the resort had its heyday... More

Bit aging (looks like they're starting renovations), but staff were nice and helpful, scenery was pretty and food was good. Best bit was the snorkeling to the reef off the pontoon near the island, very beautiful. Did have some issues the first night (neighbours with loud music at 4am, bugs in the bedroom), however staff were very understanding & accommodating... More
