First of all I 'd like to thank the staff of Dos Palmas for a very good accommodation. They were all very patient and are very friendly. I was hesitant to go there for some "security" issues at Palawan. But I never once felt any form of threat as I saw how tightly they monitor who goes into the island...

My partner and I had an excellent time at Dos Palmas. The island itself is beautiful plus the staff were brilliant. This review might sound crazy as there would be negatives, but believe me.. once you set foot on the island, everything will be as positive as it can get. (Unless you're a sourpuss and/or a highly demanding person) We...

Dos palmas has been a great name for decades and I was excited that finally I get to see this place. First off... to get here from Manila is a 1hr - 1.5hr plane ride. Once you get there, you have to take a 30 minute land trip to the Honda Bay Wharf and take a 1 hr 15 minute...

Just returned from Dos Palmas. The staff are wonderful! Couldn't do enough for we two old people. The island is picture perfect! The breakfasts were wonderful! The rest of the food needs to be chosen with care! Avoid the pizzas and the curries at all costs. The lovely big rooms need serious refurbishment. The curtains were hanging off the rods,...

My best friend and I stayed at Dos Palmas for 2 nights, and we had an excellent time! The staff was very helpful and went above and beyond for our needs. Buffet breakfast was the best! So many options and a great way to start the day. Dinner buffet was great too especially with the live entertainment. The island itself...

Spent two nights on this island resort with mon amore. It's a perfectly secluded island roughly two hours away from the mainland. We had a bumpy boat ride as the waves were really strong that day. But it was all worth it once we set foot on the fine sands of the beach. Everything was so perfect! It's like being...

The island is beautiful, the sea is clear, the staff are brilliant, (especially Jimbo and Manni in the scuba centre), there's evening entertainment and table tennis and pool.. But...don't expect a high standard in the rooms- they are clean but not well maintained-request a room in A01-8 or X01-8, they have the best views and the floors have been tiled.

Island is beautiful - white sand, beautiful sea and good pool facilities. Great place to relax. Staff are very attentive and always available. Food is fine - not great, not bad. One menu over lunch and dinner so not much variety if you are there for a long stay. Not overly priced for an island resort. Breakfast buffet is good...

I stayed at Dos Palmas with my husband as part of our 6 week travels around the Philippines for our honeymoon. The island itself is beautiful and you can't help but come away relaxed. The resort has real potential but unfortunately falls short for us in a few ways but let's start with... GOOD Affordability - it's a private resort...
