“DABDAB”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Situated 5 minutes left once you hit the sea, the layout was well thought out and the cabins are simple yet all you need.
Out front is a rocky bay but the beach is a 5 minute walk back past the pier.
Our basic double was P400 with shared bathroom and no fan.
Note. As of time of writing (May 2012) a permit is needed for the underground river which is only available in Puerto Princesa. We arrived in Sabang without it and therefore could not go.
An online system is in the works but is not yet available.

Stayed here for four nights in march. Not a bad word to say about dabdab.
-lovely helpful staff
- clean, big comfortable rooms. No hot water but this is normal in SAbang.
- great location. Set back a little from the beach a 5 minute walk to SAbang centre. We fell in love with SAbang, a very laid back beautiful place!

Dont miss doing the zip line, underground river and mangrove tour as they are all ace.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2011

The Dab Dab cottages are beautiful. The are located 15 minutes from the main pier where all the tourist boats leave to visit the underground river. The rooms are very nice and special. You have a mosquito net and most of them have a porch, all of the a hammock. The food is great at the place! Eat here! Electricity is available from 6 p.m. till 11 p.m., sometimes longer. No Internet or WIFI. A perfect place to read and do nothing.
