Dos Palmas Resort Review Jan 17, 2016

Waking up mornings with your husband by your side, making breakfast before he goes off into the world, waiting for him to come home so you can eat together…. One year… Yup it has been 365 days since we got married! 
So here we celebrate our 1st anniv in DOS PALMAS in Puerto Princesa Palawan.

All in all expense around php25k for 2pax 4d/3n tours to underground river, firefly watching, city tour via vacationislandmanila.com

Plane cebupacificair

travel time: 1hr plane ride +20min can ride + 10min waiting time + 1hr30min boat ride to and fro the resort 

   
    
   
Resort condition: 4/5 you know that it has seen better years. There are areas renovated but the walkways are made if cracked cement and the landscape almost felt unkept (bouganvillas grew without direction and dried leaves are everywhere) but there are areas that look kept like the spa area (great massage!!!)

   
    
 
Restaurant: its so dark, they should add more light and maybe make the area white so it would not feel so constricting, they should notice that the guests are preferring to stay on tables at the sides because it is really dark inside

   
 The buffet line: good selection. Love the pancakes, but i noticed that they have few selections for asian and foreign guests (by the way bulk of their clientele are foreigners) – so i think they need to tweak the menu a bit

Customer service: excellent 5/5 – from the time we arrived and time we had to leave hands down very accomodating and sincere. They come with a smile and quick to respond. 

  
Cleanliness: 3/5 the cabanas are not immediately cleaned after some guests use it. We had to clear it ourselves 

   
 
Activities : swimming , snorkeling, kayaking, bumming , etc 

   
    
 Rooms: 4/5 we got 2nd floor unit A6 (yey!) maybe coz we booked early. Plus it is nearer the facilities so that was a major plus! It was dark, no tv and the aircon was a bit noisy. It was only then that i realized birds were residing in the aircon so yeah… We are the intruders not them hahaha

   
    
   
Private dinner: addtl ph1500 setup and php1.5k for the foor we ordered 🙂 

  
Over all rating 4.5/5

Will recommend but it is not as upscale as others with its price range
