                    Beautiful views and relaxing stay”

                    Staff service, views of the water, and the scuba diving experience!

                    We went to Dos Palmas on a recommendation by my cousin, a pediatrician living in Manila. It was the second trip on a 3-resort island hopping adventure my husband and I took in August 2015. Dos Palmas is a beautiful resort with an extremely accommodating staff and a beautiful pool, beach view, and sports center. One of my favorite parts of our trip was the boat ride to the island from the wharf in Puerto Princesa, which was well planned by their staff. They emailed us a few days before our flight there to confirm the time of arrival because their boats do not travel past 4pm for security reasons. We were coming in too late so had to move our flights to an earlier time. From that time on, we enjoyed ourselves. We went scuba diving for the first time ever with PADI instructor Manny, which we really enjoyed. The underwater sea life is truly amazing there and was worth the money we spent for it, even if it ended with me getting a mild jellyfish sting! The resort is beautiful but the rooms are slightly outdated as mentioned in other reviews. It had everything we needed (toiletries, air conditioning) and we could request/borrow games at the front desk to keep us entertained at night since there were no TVs and extremely limited wifi (only accessible in the cabana). I can't imagine it is easy to constantly renovate and remodel island resorts as far as this so I am still very impressed with its beauty. Lastly, I would say the staff was highly trained to accommodate any request by the guests. While dealing with flies trying to pirate in on our meals, a waitress moved strong fans near us. While at the pool and no towels, the towel receptacle person kindly ran to the towel giver place and brought them to us. While scrambling at breakfast to get to an island tour, a waitress helped us pack some food. They truly are trained to help their guests, and we really appreciated it.

                    Great hotel for a quiet/peaceful experience”

                    The island/resort is beautiful

                    The island is beautiful. It's a tropical paradise. very quiet and peaceful. The rooms are sufficient but nothing outstanding. Decent size with a nice outdoor balcony area. Eventhing went smoothly from our pickup at the hotel office in Puerto Princesa, to the boatride to the island (about an hour), to our stay at the island and then our return boatride/transfer. I cant stress enough how beautiful the resort is. The swimming pool is very nice. There are various other activities to do on and around the island. Here is the catch... go to Dos Palmas if youre looking for a quiet, peaceful or romantic getaway. If youre looking for more of a social experience or party, this is not the place. It's very quiet and when we went there were not very many other guests. Here are my two cons: WiFi only available at the restaraunt and even then the connection is not very good. And the food selection could be better. If youre staying for multiple days youre likely to get bored with the menu. They do offer a lunch buffet but the price does not justify it. Overall I recommend Dos Palmas as long as youre not expecting a lively atmosphere.

                    Lovely island, excellent service”

                    Food is great, staff are extremely hospitable, island ambiance is cheerful, especially liked the white sand island picnic lunch

                    The travel from the port in Puerto Princesa to Dos Palmas resort by the hotel boat took us 45 minutes. Safety vests which the boat staff asked us to wear at all times made us feel secure about the trip. When the island became visible, its white beach glistened in the sun, making us all excited, ready with our cameras.As the boat docked, a band using native materials as instruments played welcome songs. Check-in was very smooth as several staffs were assigned to 1-2 guests. They were ready with a welcome necklace, proposed program, room key, and list of available services. We were ushered to our rooms ( which happened to be available) at 9:00 AM even though check-in time was 2:00 PM. This flexibility was to be repeated many times during our stay. They also took care of our luggages from the time they picked us uo in Puerto Princesa up to the door of our cottage, we did not have to left a finger to carry them. The 90-min Filipino massage, which comes free with 2 nights' stay was heavenly. Also free were diving lessons ( which we did not take due to our age ), snorkeling and kayaking, and a buffet lunch in the Isla Putting Buhangin ( White sand Isle ) the next day. That island lunch and swimming was a taste of paradise, and our best experience so far. That night, we had dinner by the beach serenaded by a local band. Food was always great! Up to the time our boat left the island port, the hotel staffs have been very helpful and friendly. My husband and I have been to many places, but we can say that these hotel staff are the friendliest and most helpful of all.

                    Big rooms with the best service in the whole PH!!!”

                    Huge swimming pool, free island cab service, bicycle around the island, & slave status servers!

                    we were picked up at the airport and waited for a few hours in their puerto princesa office. it was ok because we got to go to the nearest ncc mall and look around for stuffs. the driver was very really helpful and he carried all our heavy luguages without even asked! the office staff were also super friendly and approachable, you can ask them anything and they would give you an honest answer to their knowledge. in the boat to the island, friendly boat staff made the cutest figures out of leaves! he gave me two - one is 2 birds in a heart and then a grasshopper for my husband ;) what a talent! upon our arrival in dos palmas, we were greeted with drinks and a beaded necklace :) and then we were off for the island orientation. on our way to the room, we saw a lizard just walking around :d they are more scared of us as it ran the moment we got closer! we got to our villa but it was located on the ground floor and i wanted a 2 nd floor. they were able to accommodate and change the rooms for us. :) we looove the big huge rooms! and the big balcony that overlooks the ocean. another highlight, was their resident bird - a parrot named pekoi. he is a bit moody though but definitely kind enough that the swedish kids had him on their arms or head! he loves to eat cherries and oranges. what's lovely about this is that pekoi is free to fly anywhere in the island as he please. they don't keep him on a cage or anything like that. also the bestthing about dos palmas is their service. all their staff and servers will attend to your every need! they will offer to pour your soup in your bowls! and also personally bring your to go left overs to your villa. as i said, the staff were acting like slaves. we felt like we were royals!!! you will feel like tipping every staff, from the driver that picks you up to the servers and front desk, because of this high quality caliber of service! it was raining most the time but the staff turned our experience into a sunny one! visit them today!

                    Love love love!! Best resort in the Philippines ”

                    I love love love loved this resort!!!!! The pictures do no justice to this paradise. It’s a 45 min boat ride from Puerto Princesa which the hotel organizes from start to finish at no extra cost. If there was 10 stars to give to the staff I would, starting from the transfer driver, to the guy on boat who makes a beautiful creative piece of art with a leaf on the boat, the lifeguard, to the front desk, to the waitresses, bartender and more! They are the nicest, sweetest, most accommodating hotel staff I’ve ever encountered. I traveled in 5 different spots in the Philippines prior to arriving here (Moalboal, Siquijor, Boracay , coron, el nido ) so I have much to compare. I highly recommend spending at least 3 nights at Dos Palmas.. there is a free island hopping tour, snorkeling, the island itself has beautiful white sand, Turquoise waters, mangroves, huge harmless lizards(!!), baby black fin sharks (harmless).
