We stayed at the end of the month of November. We were welcomed by the best and most hospitable staff ever. It was such a pleasant experience to be in a peaceful and most beautiful environment in a time of a pandemic. I felt like everything was back to normal though they were really on top in terms of safety precautions that they do. They require RT PCR for all guests and they do intensive cleaning before and after. The food was superb! The choices were enough and were really handpicked so they could only offer you ones that would seriously satisfy your palate. Imagine to be in an exquisite place with buffet for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!!! The staff in the restaurant also were so accommodating. Well, all their staff in the resort actually were very polite and hospitable. They would greet you every time they pass by and would offer help before you even ask. For the activities, you don't have to stress about it anymore as they are all laid out for you. They would bring you to beautiful lagoons and island, you would enjoy kayaking! And at the end of the day, do not forget to book their massage! Best massage ever. You would be in a hut in front of the beach so the sound of the waves were also so calming. Lastly, rooms are very clean! My number one priority in choosing a hotel/resort. I enjoy relaxing and sleeping after doing the activities during the day. (Though I opt to relax in the beach front just because I was at home the entire pandemic so... lol). Ok enough. Definitely worth your money! And I am ready to go back!!!

We visited here in the end of November. This is the best food buffet I've ever tasted in a resort! Every meal is full of choices and it blew my mind everytime. The staff was so warm and helpful. They assisted us all in every island hopping. The food is super worth it! I think I wouldn't be satisfied with any food anymore when I get back to Manila. That's how good it was!! The amenities were super worth it. We played pingpong, swam in the beach and the pool, and we went kayaking all afternoon. It was all super fun! For two days we did island hopping. It was kind of gloomy when we came but the weather cleared up at the second day. I would definitely go back. In fact I just wanted to stay lol. As someone who is extra careful and doesn't go outside during this pandemic, this travel bubble is perfect. All staff and guests were tested negative. This put our minds at ease. I even saw all staff disinfecting the rooms immediately when we left. Safety precautions were implied and we were super safe moving around the bubble only. I would definitely go back! Worth the money and safety of the people. Oh and another highlight is our lunch at Entalula (white beach) the staff brought us two bento boxes of food, appetizer, and desserts! It was heaven on earth.

Amazing experience! Hassle free travel and accomodation. We booked a so called "travel bubble" which simply meant that there were a limited number of people in the resort with you at the time and that all necessary measures to ensure the safety of guests from Covid were taken. The activities, as well as the staff were all great and very hospitable. Will defintely come back and would recommend this place to friends. Great first experience in Palawan.

It was a wonderful and beautiful experience. True enough the staff really go out of their way to make your stay pleasant and memorable. They were always happy to attend to our needs. One time my husband left his slippers in one of the islands we went to and the staff went back to retrieve them! Amazing. They were also open to our other food and drink requests. Thank you so much, we woud love to come back. Thank you so much to Kuya Andy our boat guide, Kuya Jonell and Kuya Henry at the bar, Sir James the chef, Kuya Roy who is always smiling when he sees us and Kuya Jess.
