Holiday Rental House /
3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
Gilligans private resort is a holiday home with a relaxed beach house feel, situated in a pristine beachfront location with 2 acres of grounds, 185 metres of semi private beach and no neighbours for 200 metres.
The view from Gilligans is outstanding. You'll probably spend hours of your time on the front veranda or our beachfront bar table or our new Cabana looking out to the stunning views of the beach and the warm blue waters of the marine park area, or you can enjoy a few beers or cold drinks as you relax.
Its very quiet here! Very few neighbours.
Your vacation at Gilligans can be as relaxing or as busy as you like. We called it Gilligans coz originally, just like the television theme song, there were No Phones No Lights and No Motor Cars, not a single luxury, as primitive as can be..., however things have progre...

Gilligans at Port Barton is a true paradise! Everything about it my wife and I loved. From the crystal clear ocean and the wild life, island hoping, paddle boarding to the house and cabana to Estrella and Roger who went out of their way to make sure we had the greatest time possible. Their cooking is fantastic! Chicken adobo, fresh... more

My husband and I just got back from a trip to Palawan and we loved our stay at Gilligans! You're basically given a spacious, homey, wooden beachfront house in a secluded part of San Vicente with and AMAZING VIEW and lots of lounging options. They have hammocks, rocking chairs, swings, even a mini zipline (Lol). The place also has kayaks...

Thanks for your nice review. I really try to portray our homes as accurately as possible. I just returned home to Australia from Palawan last week and I saw from our guest comments that Jellyfish have been a problem for the first time, so we have installed a 90 metre jelly fish net on the beach for the protection of... more

If there was ever a place to get away from it all Gilligan's is the place to be. Covering all manners of transportation to get there ( 1 hr. via air from Cebu, 2 hrs. via land and 30 min. via water) just adds to that feeling like an Indiana Jones adventures minus impending doom and bad guys. The pictures,and...

Thanks for the great review, and for the travel tip. Yes please use our recommended driver as we have negotiated a good price. Don't use your own, or one of the airport drivers, who may tell you the road to Port Barton is closed and try to take you to another resort that pays them a commission as happened to... more

We recently installed a small solar powered hot water system, but we can't promise hot showers for large groups, and if it's rainy.....boil the kettle...

How to get there
Most of our guests choose to rent a van from Puerto Princesa air port to our homes. Many choose to take a side trip to visit the very popular Underground River either coming from or going to Port Barton. Port Barton is located between the Underground River and the popular El Nido which is to the north. It's also possible to travel from the Underground River to Port Barton and then on to El Nido. The scenery along the coastline is very beautiful.
