“MOST ROMANTIC PLACE TO STAY WITH GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2011

I just came from our trip to Palawan and I can't help to go online and make this review for such a very awesome experience that my husband and I had way back there in DANGKALAN RESORT. It was such a great experience, not just the tours, the wonderful scenery we have seen, the resort itself, but most of all the people who took care of our needs during the time we were there. Dangkalan...you're the best resort ever!!!

For couples out there, check their romantic dinner by the sea shore...super cheap, super romantic!!! one of our best experience!!!

Facilities are adequate and clean - you can request for extra towels and blanket. Beach has condition during our stay but provides good waterfront view. They have a refreshing swimming pool and hammock for nap. The place is very private and quiet.
The management is accommodating and very helpful in assisting us with our tours and transport.
Good value.

Peaceful place. Good for the family. Excellent staff can't say anything against them. They even allowed us to bring fresh seafood from the market and their restaurant actually cooked it for us for a very minimal fee. Highly advisable place to stay. With such good things in this place the owner should be the next Mayor of Puerto Princessa.

We're here last April 2010. We arrived here on our second day in Puerto Princesa because we didn't like our first hotel. The general manager of this resort, Sheryl, is really nice. When we arrived, we immediately headed to the beach front and the only thing we said is "WOWW."

The place is peaceful and very relaxing. The place is quiet and really perfect for relaxation. We had our videoke night and it was fun. There is free transpo service from their resort to any of the restaurant you want to have lunch or dinner. They will make the reservation for you because most of the restaurant here in Puerto Princesa have lots of people eating because their food is really good!!

I cannot say anything more but I really can't forget this resort being the most peaceful and relaxing place I've ever been to.

Was looking through tripadvisor for lodging in Puerto Princesa that would be close to the beach. Found the perfect place in Dangkalan..well, almost. Availed of their package promo, which would include r/t airport transfers, daily shuttle to the heart of the city, a city tour, Underground River tour and Honda Bay tour with a fantastic lunch spread for the river and bay tour, breakfast and a huge room, all for P12,500 (around $280) for 2 pax for 3 nights! Upon reaching the place, we found the treehouse to be more enticing, as this was perched on a tree right smack infront of the beachside. So we requested to be transferred there the next day. Sheryll was very helpful in accomodating all our requests. The treehouse was kinda cool, as there was this quaint balcony with chairs and tables where you can just sit all day staring out to the sea, with heavy seawind blowing in your face as they bring you cocktails and drinks up the tree. The room was so-so, but then again, it is a treehouse, so dont expect anything fancy. It had a nice bed, a large shelf to place all your stuff, really cold airconditioning, cable TV and a tiny bath area. There is a bar beside the pool and billiards area where you can hang out. There is also free WiFi around that area.

It is quite secluded and far from the city, therefore, very peaceful and quiet. There are no crowds on the beachfront. Just you, some other guests, and several locals. This brings me to the downside.

Since it is far from anything, unless you choose to avail of their shuttle to the city, you will be forced to eat there. Food leaves so much to be desired. Plus the fact that their kitchen and bar staff seem to bored and unattentive, compared to Sheryll, the roomboys, the guards and the tour staff. They were all friendly and always on their toes. We only ate there once (aside from the daily breakfast), and just went out to the city to eat.

All in all, this is highly recommended if you want beachfront accomodations in Puerto Princesa. It is very peaceful, quiet, away from the madness of the city and the crowds, and of course, the price cant be beat!

This place offers great customer service. I’ll start will the manager who was very approachable and make sure that you enjoy everything Palawan could offer. The staff was so amazing with their smiling faces every time they see you. If you have plans to go to Puerto Princesa, have Dangkalan manage your tourist trips and I’m sure that you’ll not regret it. The only downside of staying in this resort would be the beachfront and I do hope that they will spend some money to restore the beauty of it just like Palawan’s snake island.  We’ll see you again this summer Sheryl as I will have you manage our daily trips! God Bless to your resort.
