We had the greatest time of our lives during our stay at Dos Palmas. I went there with my husband and two sons and stayed in a beach villa. The villa was spacious but it doesn't have television. At first I thought it would spoil our vacation since my eldest son always wants a TV inside the room but I... More

Dos Palmas was a nice getaway. I think I was expecting more after reading the resort description when we were choosing a place to go in Puerto Princessa. I also thought we were getting a great deal on agoda.com for a highly rated resort. Unfortunately I believe we paid more for what we got, especially for the Philippines. It's an... More

We just returned from our stay at Dos Palmas. Our family stayed at the newly built Executive villa for 2nights, overlooking the sea - a real breathtaking view. The whole facility is well laid out with very friendly staff. Our son fell sick during our stay and the hotel nurse was very helpful and also came back the following morning... More

Very relaxing remote island with beautiful nature and sunset views. The entire resort is a bit worn down, the rooms are big with nice terrace but could use some rework. Restaurant and food: The first impression is not good, the menu card is a paper copy covered in plastic with old pictures which does absolutely not look delicious, some of... More

Unfortunately, we did not experience the privilege of staying overnight in this resort, only visited as part of a day-trip arranged by our hotel manager. After we arrived at the port, two very efficient and friendly staff members got our manifests in order and escorted our group onto the boat. The boat, by the way, has a capacity of up... More

This place may possibly be the worst hotel I’ve ever stayed at, especially if you take the price into consideration. For the Philippines, this is actually quite expensive. And believe me - it’s so not worth it! When I made the booking, the idea of a remote and solitary resort sounded romantic and exclusive. Getting there, I realized it meant... More

Had a horrible time in Manila..this island is the perfect place to be. My friend booked everything and the rest of us had absolutely no expectation nor seen any photos or details online prior to the trip. Took one hour from Honda Bay to the island on a ferry. It's a relaxing ride. Once we r on the island, we... More

I had a very relaxing the enjoyable stay at Dos Palmas. The room was Ok. It had all the basics. No TV or internet. The shower is a little rusty due to the salty water but that doesn't bother me. Everyone with a waterfront property knows about this problem with metal fixtures. The pool is great and clean and the... More

We stayed 2 nights in February 2014. After having seen the pictures we were really looking forward to our stay but left the island with mixed feelings. The transfer was well organized (and is included in the hotel price), the island is lovely, pools are very nice. The view from the beach over the sea with the mountains of Palawan... More
