There is a reason why this hotel is number one on the island. Right from when they pick you up at the airport, given a fresh cold towel and cold water you know you are in for a great stay. Everyone at the hotel is friendly and all know you name! I had a treatment at the spa sand whilst...

My husband and I stayed here for just one night on honeymoon, as we were stopping over from Malapascua before heading to Palawan the next day. Our only regret was that we had to leave so soon. Everything was perfect. It's perfect for a romantic night away or stay for honeymoon. We spent the 24 hours just in the resort...

This is a boutique resort with only 9 rooms, so expect an intimate and relaxing getaway. The cabanas are perfect for lounging by the infinity pool, which by the way was the perfect temperature! We were in "Sayop 6", the penthouse room with an ocean view and it was absolutely lovely! Service is EXCEPTIONAL!

After visiting many countries in the world and staying at many 5 star resorts, Abaca is really one of a kind. The integrity and total privacy is amazing. With first class customer service, they pampered me an my family in a way we never had expected. The staff of the Abaca are very very friendly, alert, warm and generous in...

I have a very high pressure job and my wife and I were in need of some real relaxation. Abaca provided this perfectly. We saw it first on TripAdvisor and the recommendations were glowing so decided to book a room for a week. Fortunately for us the suites were fully booked and Abaca generously upgraded us to the best villa...

We had a near-perfect holiday at Abaca. I was a little apprehensive when we were not immediately greeted at the airport and waited outside for 10 minutes. The airport porter eventually found the hotel van and the staff was very apologetic for not meeting us indoors. Once we were whisked away from the airport, the Abaca experience was second to...

The hotel. The staff. The resort. Just lovely. Food was amazing. Worth every penny. Even though it is a small hotel compared to the other 5 star hotels beside it, it truly stands out.

The Abaca has very friendly and helpful staff and great food. I was pleasantly surprised. The staff were always available when we needed help and flexible with our requests. The pool and cabanas were a quiet haven to rest and relax in.

We stayed at Abaca Boutique Resort 4 nights in January, and I don't think we'd had better service at a hotel before. On arrival we got to meet our designated butler, who would make sure our stay would be comfortable and nice (and he did). We stayed at the Oceanfront spa villa, and it was big and nice, and with...
