“Real friendly place to be...”
Reviewed 28 August 2013 via mobile

stayed for 3 nights, there's a courtesy van, but its not offered so Dont forget to ask, meals are on you, newly built mall close by, so eating is no problem, beaches are different for each island hop, definitely a place to come again, I've never seen so many large starfishes in my life!!!

Trusted and friendly staff, clean rooms, and over-all highly recommended! We had a wonderful stay at Dangkalan Resort. They provided everything we needed (Tours, Information where to eat or where to buy pasalubong, Transportation Services, and other inquiries). Ronnie was easy to talk to and very accommodating. The drivers were very helpful and very friendly. Will definitely choose Dangkalan again when we go back to Puerto Princesa.

I booked a family room in this resort last feb 26-28 2013, yes the resort is far from the city center but they drop you off everyday in the city just ask their staff in advance, and i can say the room is not big enough for the four of us and somewhat old, the food is ok, the water from the pool is ok, the breakfast is ok.. But all of this average stuffs doesnt matter because of the hospitable and warm staffs weve encountered in this resort. the best Ive seen so far. Ive been to almost all the tourist destinations herein the philippines and checked in to triple a resorts as well but the warmth of the staffs in dangkalan is the best ive seen! I would like to commend their driver MANG RODEL for being so nice and warm. The best driver in palawan perhaps!! I hope to see them all in the future!

Also thanks to RON for being so patient regarding my booking! :)

We stayed at this hotel for 2 days and it truly wss a disaster. It is not wort your money. The fact that the hotel is far out of town is not the problem but the last 500 metres of the road up there are poor and dangerous. So is stsying at the hotel. Our room was pretty dirty eccept for the bedsheets, the shower was stuck and pointed straight at the wall, 2 times we were surprised by finding big bkack spiders in the bathroom and at night we eere held awake by the singing of the bullfrogs. There is no beach at the place, the breskfsst is por and while we were there no other food or drinjs were served. The whole place was dirty and very poorly maintained. The personel sat chatting ariund all day instead of cleaning up thr place and make it look representable. The furniture at the pool durely had not been clesned for ages and all buildings could use some fresh painting. Right now we are stsying at a good hotel with decent dtaff and facilitied for the same price we paid for the rubbish we got at the dangkalan without beach or restarant resort!!!!!

The first thing that strikes you about Dangkalan is the location. Its a little way from town, right on the water, and quiet. There isnt much of a beach to speak of, and at low tide the water vanishes to the horizon. There is a pool though to cool off in. The rooms are basic but clean, there is cable TV but the reception can be mixed especially if there is a storm in the area. The breakfast offering is very basic to say the least, and is one area that could be improved. The staff are by and large excellent, nothing seems too much bother, and all are friendly and warm.
The distance from town is alleviated by using the resort van, and we took advantage of this every night to go into town to eat. There is a cost for the service, but they will drop you off and come back to collect you, or wait for you if you're eating fast food, or you can always take a trike back. The resort can arrange tours to the local attractions.
The resort to me offers so much more potential, the basics are there, its just lacking in some areas, like breakfast, but could so easily be improved. However, all in all, a very lovely stay, in a nice quiet environment, just what we wanted.

Staff were accommodating, except for one misunderstanding with a restaurant booking. The beach did not look too good, so we settled for the swimming pool instead. Food in the restaurant is good but a bit overpriced (compared to other restaurants in town). All in all, our stay was hassle-free and not too bad.

Room Tip: we stayed in a spacious premiere room with a veranda. these are farther from the beach so there'...
