We booked a Premier Sea View room and got surprised when the front desk upgraded us to Panorama Suite for free! How cool is that. This 1 bedroom suite is huge, fancy and modern. It has a separate living room, an executive desk, a dining table, a walk-in closet, a bathroom with separate tub and shower, and a big balcony.
The view could have been lovelier… [Read more...]
Due to good weather, tonight’s dinner was set-up by the pool area. The feeling of exclusivity sets in as only 20 guests remained. As usual, the dinner spread is excellent. To top wrap up our second night, fire dancers performed to all the guests’ delight.

Our package includes a beach lunch buffet at Isla Puting Buhangin, a private island owned by Dos Palmas 30 minutes boat ride from the main resort. This small island is very beautiful with a long sandbar. Unfortunately, the tides were high at the time we went and the sandbar is only partly visible. Nevertheless, the island remains to be charming.
I salute… [Read more...]
After breakfast, we were immediately whisked away to Helen’s Garden snorkelling spot via a speed boat. I looked at the crystal blue waters in awe! There were lots of colourful fish in shallow waters as if they’re excited to greet visitors. The marine life and corals are in very healthy shape. Our snorkelling guide was so kind enough to take pictures… [Read more...]

What I liked about Dos Palmas is its exclusivity and very personalized service. You can be whisked away via a speedboat to nearby snorkelling sites “when you want it” together with your very own snorkelling guide. Weather permitting of course. All snorkel equipments are free. In other big international resorts, yes you get fancy rooms and facilities,… [Read more...]
We got assigned to 2nd floor of a beach villa as per our request from Dos Palmas staff. The room is spacious with 1 king bed, 1 single bed (almost double) and a sofa. Air-conditioning system is good. There is no TV and no wifi available inside the room. The view from the room could have been better if not blocked by the mangroves. I have to rate the room and… [Read more...]

The service is very personalized. Upon your arrival, you have a pre-assigned table reserved under your name for lunch buffet. The lunch buffet spread is… [Read more...]
I’m a super fan of snorkelling! When an online group buying site launched the Dos Palmas Palawan deal early in 2011, I immediately grabbed the deal without a second thought. I have been to Dos Palmas for a day trip before and was truly amazed with Palawan’s natural beauty. Now, I’m back for more – a full 3D/2N full board stay. The excitement led me… [Read more...]
