Mina is not only an incredibly friendly host, but also a great cook. We had an amazing time and could relax deeply. Each time, when we returned from a an excursion (Mina organises them if you want) it felt like coming back home.

Mina was our host for four days while we toured Palawan - she's an amazing hostess. She provides all your meals, and her helper Elmer will do just about everything else for you - drive you around, arrange your tours, take you to the port, get you a boat for island hopping, etc. Mina met us at the airport in Puerto Princesa when we landed, picked us up, and gave us a tour of town. She had arranged transport back to the resort for us - we didn't have to arrange a thing for the whole four days we were at Tarabanan. When we were ready to depart she accompanied us all the way back to the airport and dropped us off. The location is unbelievable, the cottages all face the beach. Every morning brings another amazing sunrise. I can't wait to return. Absolutely the best place we stayed while in the Philippines.

Charming bamboo cottages, located in a beautiful garden with lots of different trees and plants. It's a peaceful place with direct access to a sandy beach and lovely sea. It's very private. Host Mina cooks delicious, fresh food, we really enjoyed breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Tarabanan is a little paradise, run by the most wonderful lady called Mina! We were a group of 6 people, and came across it by chance, and ended up staying 5 days. Mina couldn't have been more lovely, she looked after us so well. The food that Mina makes is fresh, local and just delicious. I hope one day we'll be able to visit Mina and Tarabanan again!

We were greeted by Mina, who is the owner and just the loveliest, most generous of people. She was so warm and friendly. All the staff and her family who also help are amazing too. The cottages are simple and rustic but done with charm and perfect for the setting. Its relaxed and low key. we were a group of 6 and most of the time had it to ourselves. There are hammocks outside the rooms, its heaven! The beach is pebbled, but some sand, and gorgeous for long walks. The food is the best we had in our trip- really fresh, tasty, inventive and plenty of selection. Really good. We are well at both breakfast and dinner. Mina organised some trips for us- all went really well. She also organised a private little exclusion for me to take photos- very off the beaten track. She showed us her Fruit/veg farm, and taught the guys how to make Crispy Pata. Every day had another fantastic experience. We had a really special time there, and would highly recommend a few nights at least to unwind and really experience the best of Filipino hospitality. It was my birthday on the day we left, and they made us a really special birthday breakfast which was a real treat, and made us really sad to leave!!!
