After thirty hours of traveling, we finally arrived at our destination. This was my first time (my wife's 4th) in the Philippines and it was a memorable one. Palawan should be on everyone's bucket list, it's that beautiful! And definitely staying here at Chindonan was exactly what we needed. It's not your typical resort. There isn't the hustle and bustle...

We stayed here 5 nights after a week and a half of stressful travel in Manila and Legazpi. It was so refreshing and wonderful. I love that there is nothing but the resort, which is small. The snorkeling was the best we have had and we've been to Moorea, Bora Bora, Fiji, the Galapgos, and Hawaii. Thank you to Nick...

We stayed for 3 nights during Chinese New Year, and I can honestly say it's one of my top 3 favourite places to stay in Asia. The location on Chindonan Island is perfect - amazing sunsets in the evening and just a beautiful setting. The views are stunning, and there are so many different places to enjoy them from -...

My husband and I planned this trip months in advance. I did lots of research to make sure we would get the best experience we wanted for the best value. It's not the cheapest place to stay and not the most expensive. We told them in advance what flight we would be taking and we were met at the airport...

The silence at the resort is nearly deafening! A relatively new resort, clean and well kept. Its a perfect location for diving some of Coron's WWII wrecks (several are a 10min boat ride away), wonderful snorkelling opportunities (one of which is right in front of the resort) and island hopping to name just 3 (all of which can be arranged...

Our family of four spent four days at Chindonan and had a really wonderful time. It is a great base to explore this beautiful and mostly untouched part of Palawan. Victorianlad's review accurately and thoroughly captured many of the details of Chindonan, and we too have many marvelous memories of our visit. We took several trips on the resort bancas...

Per & Per were fantastically hospitable - did a little snorkelling and had 2 days of just chilling - as I'm not a diver I thought I may get a little bored but it was great to be somewhere where all you hear is the sound of the waves, birds in the trees and nothing else - there are some...

The only drawback for us was the lack of air conditioning. My then pregnant wife and two young girls had the place to ourselves after the first evening on the island. The food was outstanding (literally swimming in the morning before served for dinner). The staff both behind the scenes and on excursions were exceptional. Per, Per and Lona were...

At Coron Pier after our Air Phil Express flight to Busuanga, we boarded one of the two fairly spacious bancas Chindonan owns, only to be partly drenched by a downpour enroute to the island, a sea transfer that took a little over an hour. Upon arrival at the impressively constructed, sturdy Chindonan Pier, part owner Per (who had accompanied us...

Best vacation ever! :) We really loved it from start to finish. I thought cloudy skies and occasional rain showers will ruin the fun and a but it didn't. It actually helped make the experience more gratifying. The owners and staff were extremely hospitable and friendly and just wonderful people. They really go the extra mile to help you, provide...
