The resort and hotel is situated about an hours boat trip from the sea wharf. The rooms are very spacious and the beds are very comfortable. They have aircons and fans in the room to keep you cool from the heat. They have no electricity for 2 hours each day to refuel their generators. The room is neat and tidy...

Great place ! Beautiful island, great accommodations and very friendly staff. In particular the staff shows were great. Their rate includes a Hassle free airport pick up and boat transfer. On the island we were pleasantly surprised by the almost non commercial attitude; Food and drinks on the resort are reasonably priced, they offer a free island hopping tour, free...

We stayed 2 nights at the Dos Palmas Island Resort as the first place on our trip to the Philippines. We had the most amazing time. The Resort is beautiful and the staff could not have been more friendly and accommodating. We had a problem with 2 of our daughters flights being cancelled, but the staff dealt with all the...

If you're looking for a true island vacation, I would recommend Dos Palmas. You fly into Puerto Princesa airport, an hour boat ride from the wharf along Honda Bay you will find your island getaway. They welcome you with songs, native necklace and a cold drink. The grounds are well kept, clean although the rooms are a bit outdated they...

We opted for a day pass to Dos Palmas while staying in Puerto Princesa. For around 2,500 pesos ($50) per person, we received round trip transportation from a central spot in town to the pier in Honda Bay and the boat ride to/from the island. They are serious about what comes on to their island (I'm guessing) and our boat...

This is my review for all inclusive day trip to the resort only. We did not stay at the resort. We took a day trip from Puerto Princess a for 1800 peso per person or about $35 USD. The trip includes a boat ride from Puerto Princess a port to the island, lunch, and all island activities. The boat ride...

The facilities are a bit old and clearly being refurbished to varying degree of success. Overall a very nice place to relax, with really friendly staff everywhere. Nice free trips for swimming and snorkeling. The restaurant menu is very limiting but a cut above the restaurant standards in Manila. You get picked up at the airport, driven to the port...

I first got to know about Dos Palmas in a bad way. Via the Kidnapping of the Burnhams. So i was a bit hesitant to go there but during a travel fair they had a booth and prices were discounted. I booked the Executive Villa and here goes my review of Dos Palmas. Location: Located in Honda Bay. Dos Palmas...

Awesome, beautiful and peaceful place to be. Fresh Air, fantastic views, island hopping, snorkeling, kayaking,etc. All sports activities you could think off you can possibly play there😉. Biking around the resort, entertainment shows at night are the best. The staffs are very helpful and respectful. Fresh fruits, Veges and seafoods. Wifi that really fascinate me, impressive.
