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

We spent three nights here and enjoyed every minute of this island and hotel. While the apartments are a bit jaded because I guess Dos Palmas is 1hour and 15 out from Palawan and it must get extremes of weather as seasons change so its probably quite an achievement to keep it so well. Rooms are large with everything you... More

My one complaint is that I am now back at home, and not reclined on the sun lounger, cocktail in hand, drinking in the scenery and watching the amazing sunset from the island. An incredibly relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings. Perfect for my family, but am not sure young people would find enough to do in the evenings. We loved... More

Me and my fiancé decided to try this part of Palawan after a 4 days visit in El Nido. The two geographical locations in Palawan differ significantly form each other - where Honda Bay has more long white sand beaches and a "flatter" appearance and El Nido has big mountains and rocks just lying in the water. We chose this... More

This hotel was the highlight of our trip. Rooms are spacious but matras is kinda hard. Bathroom has a pretty size with a great walk in shower. No TV in the room. Also no coffee maker. It all just looks a bit out dated. It definitively needs an update... At this moment there is only wifi around bar, restaurant and... More
