My girlfriend and I had a wonderful stay. First of all, the island is absolutely beautiful, as are the rooms and the open-aired dining/club house area. We were relaxed the entire time and really did not want to leave. The food was fantastic. I really liked that there was no menu.. and that you could just show up and look... More

Definitly a place to go if you are in the area and that have a sense of refinement and appreciate to be in exclusive places!! The host, Helena and Richard welcome you as if you were old friends without interfering on your privacy. You abviously are free to participate or not. Concerning the rates and taxes that some former guests... More

Our stay started out nicely. Richard the owner was quite friendly and went out of his way to make our stay comfortable. But our stay soon soured. Guests have their meals together on one dining table, so you're pressured to socialize with complete strangers, make conversation and be nice. My wife, being a very private person, wasn't happy about this... More

I've never come back from a place more rested, refreshed, and relaxed than I have from Mangenguey. The only thing missing from the place is a white-suited Ricardo Mantalban speaking his line from the TV show. I found the island to be: Beautiful Quiet Relaxing Still (not the same as quiet) Clean Inviting I say these things knowing full well... More

Great stay at a very small boutique resort that is well throughout and in good taste with influences of fashion detail. We stayed there from October 31 until Nov 5. TRANSPORT The resort will help arrange this. They will pick you up from Coron with their own boat. Depending on the weather, it takes around 1.5 hours to reach Mangenguey.... More

My boyfriend and I went in search of a unique experience on our second trip together to the Philippines. After back packing through many destinations last year we wanted two things 1) to return to the beautiful islands of Palawan 2) to stay somewhere we could experience a bit of luxury as well as experience a place with a truly...

What can I say about Mangenguey - this is the most beautiful island I have ever seen. We were met at the airport by a friendly driver who took us to the port in Coron where we were directed to a small bar to wait for our banka. As with everything in the Philippines don't be surprised if you have... More

My wife and I spent amazing 6 days on Mangenguey Island. It is a beautiful 'hidden gem' and it feels like you are pretty much at the end of the world. Your stay starts with a 1.5 to 2 hr boat trip from Busuanga which itself is a sightseeing tour through beautiful Palawan waters. The first thing you notice when... More

Ok so I decided to write this review mostly to make people aware of the arrangements at this resort. Firstly, we found this place to be quite overpriced for what you get. You could probably get much more for this amount of money in other resorts in the Philippines (not to mention Asia). So here are a few things to... More
