Review: Dangkalan Beach Resort in Palawan

After researching all of the hotels and resorts in Puerto Princesa City I chose this one based on previous reviews and for the uniqueness of their Tree House suite. I emailed them off their web site and Sheryl was quick with a reply. We booked 2 nights in the Tree House and one night in a standard room.

When we arrived their van and driver was there waiting to pick us up, it is a very short drive to the resort from the airport so we were able to unpack and relax right away. We decided to have lunch there at the resort and ordered the seafood sinigang, they set a table for us out on their deck which was great. We ate lunch surrounded by the ocean and the beach.

The tree House is a lot of fun, the view from up there is amazing and the breeze it gets is really nice too. It has its own deck with a table and chairs where we relaxed quite a bit at. We had planned on checking out a lot of restaurants in the area but didn’t get to half of them because the food was so good there at the resort. We did go to Ka Lui and Sheryl took care of the reservations for us. She also booked our city tour and our Honda Bay tour. Both of the tours were great, she really picked good guides for us.

Our last night stay we had to move to a standard room because the Tree House was booked and the standard room was spacious and though it could use some updating it was very clean and well kept. Given the price we paid to stay there I honestly considered it a real bargain. The grounds are very well kept as well, the pool was large and deep, also very clean. There is free WiFi in the office and we were able to catch the signal sitting out in front of our standard room.

The real highlight of this place though is the service it was by far the best experience I have had at any resort/hotel here in the PH. From the Driver who took us into town when ever we wanted to go (free of charge!) to the house keepers (they even moved our bags from the tree house to the standard room while we were out snorkeling!) to the chef who made the delicious food and the room service attendants who met every request with attention and a big smile. Sheryl does an outstanding job and my Wife and I will most certainly return in the near future!

This is an honest review I know it may sound to good to be true but it really is that good, check my other reviews for reference. I use TripAdvisor when planning all of our trips and take the time to add my reviews positive or negative. I recently stayed at the Bohol Beach Club and the service and food at Dangkalan put the BBC to shame!

My Rating: EXCELLENT
(great location, beautiful views and amazing staff)
