As a single person, this was without a doubt the biggest rip off of time and money I have ever experienced. Perhaps shame-on-me for not doing more research before committing to a 3 day stay. But when I pay such a large amount and the name says "resort" there has to be at least a minimum level of expectations which... More

You don't feel like an outcast in that expensive resort because they treat you equally just like how they treat the foreigners. Customer service is very good. They were able to grant us our request which is the nearest room possible to the restaurant and in the upper room. We arrived in the resort around 2PM and the weather was... More

We went to Dos Palmas on a recommendation by my cousin, a pediatrician living in Manila. It was the second trip on a 3-resort island hopping adventure my husband and I took in August 2015. Dos Palmas is a beautiful resort with an extremely accommodating staff and a beautiful pool, beach view, and sports center. One of my favorite parts... More

Our room was ok but could be improved. Personally, I find it very basic. Probably because I was comparing it to Misibis Bay Resort. The staff was good, really helpful. We forgot our shopping bag on the boat and they made sure we got it back. For less than 200 usd a night, we got the following: roundtrip land and... More

My son and I came from El Nido through ground transportation to Puerto Princesa. A shuttle van from Dos Palmas picked us up from Robinson's mall and took us to the wharf where there is a pre-check in. My son and I were the only ones in the boat and it was big. The trip was approximately 1 hr to... More

This resort would have been a hit in the early 2000. And it still is but they just haven't gone with times. A big renovation is needed. The room we stayed in had a "patched" aircon. The tiles are old and some broken. The bed is not comfy at all. The amenities around the island also need some serious uplift,... More

Overnight stay at this resort is not enough. The place is so peaceful, calm and serene. Buffet was sumptuous, spa was great, swimming at the pool and Jacuzzi is fun. You can also borrow their bicycles to roam around the island and there is also a kayak. The best part is the site for snorkeling, which comes with the package... More
