This is one of the first times I have traveled without very careful research, much like you my readers are doing now. Ceasing the moment in the last 2 days of a business trip in Manila, we just flew into Puerto Princessa and had to take it from there. When (*eventually arriving.. I will review the journey at the end... More

Its actually my second stay in Dos Palmas. My wife and 2 kids stayed from July 19-22 to celebrate my birthday. It was very relaxing. The rooms, pools, amenities, surroundings were very clean. Staff was very friendly, attentive and very approachable. They even gave me a birthday cake on my birthday. And the trip was actually much cheaper now because... More

We stayed at Dos Palmas for three nights. It was an amazing experience. The free tour to the reef was nice, the reefs looked healthy and are very close to the resort. The free kayaking was really fun, we kayaked around the whole island. The island isn't that big and the water was very calm, so even though we have... More

My fiancée and I stayed here for 4 nights and enjoyed every moment, even though the weather was not on our side. Our flight from Manila was delayed by 2 hours but we were very pleased to see the Dos Palmas driver still waiting there to collect us. From the airport it's a 30 minute drive to Honda Bay where...

Was actually looking forward to clear blue water around the island and beach villas along the beach, but the surroundings are more of a mangrove area with minimal area for actual swimming. The beach villas were nice and rooms were superb. The resort has a very relaxing and serene feel to it and the staff were great all the way!... More

The staff were exceptional from room service to the restaurant. Everybody were so attentive and kind.However, in... More

The transfer (boat trip only) takes around 1hr 15mins, and the ferry port is around 20 to 30 mins from the airport. Staff made something of a mess of our collection and delivery to the ferry port (from a hotel in the city) but we got there eventually (after a few phone calls to remind them we were waiting). Generally... More

Great location with picturesque beaches. I often felt like I was the only one in the resort when walking the beach as there was no one else around. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Saw a very large monitor lizard walking around, a tiny garden snake and there is a colorful parrot flying around the grounds. The scuba diving is... More
