I have visited the place when it was name Coco Loco Resort in 2001. The travel from Puerto Princesa is a little bit long. We were greeted by a private driver and we hired him to bring us to Roxas town which is about 4 hours away from Puerto Princesa. Then a boat will bring you to this small island (about 7 hectares) where you could walk around in just few minutes. There are 3 type Bungalow to sleep with, my favorite are the one close to the beach with nipa roof. The other bungalows are located inside the island and their architecture blended with the surrounding nature. The beach is very nice and you can see beautiful corals next to your bungalow, and lots of fishes around the corals. The place is very quite and perfect for a person who wants to get away from it all. The service may not be great since it is so remove, they did not hire professional people to do what 5 star hotel does. I have been to Palawan 3 times and this is the island that I have visited the first time, and I can make comparison to other places I have visited, such as El Nido and Coron. El Nido and Coron have so much varieties than this small island. I recommend to stay here for just 3 days, then visit El Nido and Coron. At that time in 2001, I thought the place is so inexpensive to stay with if you compare with Dos Palmas resort in Honda Bay area. Again it is worth trying even just for a few days. It's a beautiful island.
