Me and my Partner stayed here in February for 6 nights and again at the beginning of March for 5 nights. The price to stay is around £30 a night including 3 meals a day, which is really good. This was by far the highlight of our holiday. It really is an amazing place to relax, we did a bit...

Stayed here as a solo traveller for 4 nights. Excellent place to meet people during lunch and dinner buffets where the food is tremendous and plentiful. Tents are spacious and nice outdoor area in the shade to read or watch the ocean. Beach is lovely where you can take a nice walk along.Kayaking and paddle boarding are available and a...

This place is located in paradise: Crystal clear water in the most breathtaking shades of blue, a long, sandy beach with palm trees (just like on a postcard), beautiful flowers, great sunset view,... The thing is, there were too many flaws for it to be as great as other reviews led me to believe: - The staff was friendly but...

They were very kind to accommodate our last minute overnight booking; as in same date booking! We haven't stepped out of the boat yet and I can already say that I love this place. Staff welcomed us upon arrival, gave us helpful info and served us a good meal for our late lunch. We also met Toby and had a...

This is my 2nd visit to Palawan camping and so this review is long overdue. I am always overwhelemed when arriving at Thelma and Tobys camping at how beautiful the beaches are here! Camping or should I say Glamping right on the beach, surrounded by beautiful gardens full of butterflies. The staff are welcoming and hospitable. Thelma is the hostess...

Spend a whole week here and wish i could stay another. What an amazing place, so peaceful and relaxed. If you love snorkling, diving, stunning beaches and nature, having a natural spring as a shower and don't mind going a little bit back to basic this place is awesome. Food was great as well and the staff couldn't be more...

A group of us that live in El Nido decided we would visit Toby and Thelma’s having heard so many great things about the place. It is a beautiful retreat away from the tourism of El Nido. The beach is perfect for swimming and snorkelling with a stunning view of the sunset to end the day. Food is tasty and...

This review is long overdue. My wife and I stayed at Thelma and Toby's Island Camping Adventure in April (2 night stay). We both agree that this was the highlight of our 3 week trip to the Philippines. Booking ahead of time is a must as you cannot just show up and expect them to have an open tent. We...

This is a great stop while traveling Palawan. The clam clear waters in the bay at Port Barton and Toby & Thelma's make a recipe for relaxation. This is the perfect location to relax and get off of the grid a few days. We met some wonderful people there, bot locals and travelers. They feed you 3 times per day...

We stayed for 4 days and it was the best experience we had in the Phillipines. We enjoyed the peace and quietness, the very nice waters and beach and the very good food (specifically in the evening). The staff was very friendly and helpful and the tents were spacious. We made good use of snorkels and the kayaks which were...
