I stayed at Summer Homes for a week back in 2011 and again in October 2011. I find the service excellent and friendly and the food very good. The location is quiet and the beach sand is very nice to walk. They have a nice location in the center of the beach. There is two room styles to choose from front cabins with balconies and the rooms set back with the main building. They are very clean and comfortable, but I never stayed in the front row cabins. They have a nice yard with places to sit in the front lawn/garden and a couple of nice hammocks on the beach. It is near San Vicente and long beach, but I really enjoyed the island hoping here. On the islands the water is clear, lots of coral and fish for snorkelling. There are few tourists here, so if you want a quiet place and reasonable prices Port Barton is great. I took my initial dive discovery day here and loved it. There are many little islands with beautiful sandy beaches and coral to enjoy. Reasonably priced and good service. I took a boat from Sabang to get here and also use the boat to travel up to El Nido. The Jeepney and minivans are cheaper, but arriving in El Nido by boat was very beautiful, besides the fact that the coast is very nice to see. The trip from memory was 4 hours from Sabang and maybe 5 or 6 hours to El Nido. I swam on the beach of Port Barton Daily, but the water is not clear along the shore, whereas the island hoping provided excellent water clarity.
