Reviewed 2 January 2011

We enjoyed our 5 days on Chindonan Island. The owners were most helpful in making our stay most enjoyable. We will recommend this resort to our friends.

fantastic place-nice staff-frendly ovners-great cottage-good dinner- and maybe the greatest snorkling place on earth, 5m from the pier you can play with seahorses.

not the greatest place to be in bat weather- we were so unlucky to be there, when 2 supertyfon hit ph-and the rain just felt down on us for 5 out of 7 days.

all at all- fantastic place in palawan

Our inquiry was for 3 days, the reservation for one week and we finally stayed there for 1 month because we enjoyed it so much!

Small (max. 25 guests) but very professional resort, most helpful, English speaking hosts, friendly and polite staff, delicious food (different dishes every day, our favourite: ginger-chili soup, rocklobsters), own drinking water, spacious and clean rooms, impressive visit in the native village on the island, peaceful nature and a lot of animals (butterflies, parrots and other birds, lizards, geckos etc), amazing snorkeling and diving at the Chindonan house reef (seen seahorses, mandarin fish, turtle etc.) as well as wreck diving (cooperation with sangat dive center), excursions on request and so on and so on.

We enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere very much and would definitely recommend Chindonan Island Resort to everybody who is looking for the unique island experience with comfort, cleanliness, Asian cuisine, far away from nightclubbing and definitely to break out of the daily stressful routine!

Dear All,

I went with 2 friends in Chindonan Island resort. We went there because one of our friend went also in january 2010 and told us that it is an exceptional place.
If you are in love with Diving, it is the peferct place. because of the wrecks but also because of the resort. After diving, the boat takes you back to the resort, alone on the island, you can enjoy the silence et the particular sea view. then you just have to relax and do nothing else.
The dinner is so good , health and cooked with love. You can fell it. Lona and Per are so welcome people and they let you do your relaxing time and take care of you as parents do.
You will never forgot the quite atmosphere and the niciest people you will met.
The cottage deluxe are so clean and very spacious with a perfect sea view when you wake up. always smile every morning.
Very good souvenirs :)
If you look for night club or whatever with other people, do not go there. you are just alone and it is perfect when you are looking for that.

We spent an excellent three days in April 2010 at the Chindonan Island Resort and Dive Center, Palawan, Philippines. The resort is small, very friendly and the snorkeling is amazing. You just have to walk down the short jetty, go down a few steps, swim a few yards and there is the reef! We saw fantastic coral, clams, sea horses, clown fish, a turtle and so much more. I had never been snorkeling before and I can't wait to get back. If you like diving on wrecks, there are several Japanese wrecks from World War II in the area.
The resort has very comfortable accommodation in substantial cottages with mosquito screens and ensuite bathrooms. There is a comfortable restaurant area and a well - stocked bar. The price includes two excellent meals each day. We especially liked the fresh, locally caught fish and delicious mango shakes. The price also includes transfer from the airport at Busuanga - a minibus ride to Coron and then about 45 by boat to Chindonan.
The English speaking owners of the resort and their staff really go out of their way to make your stay both comfortable and enjoyable. We had a great time and would thoroughly recommend the resort as a holiday destination.
