Our company had our annual team building here at Palms beach. It was our first time here. Although we initially had some apprehension regarding the place as we encountered some problems when booking our reservations, our stay turned out to be one very memorable event. Our rooms and cabanas were close to each other and very near the beach area. The dining staff were very attentive and accommodating. Shout out to Gary, Jiesan, Arlene and the rest of the waiters and waitresses and kitchen staff for taking care of everyone. They worked very hard to make our stay a great one and the food was also very good and filling. The front desk staff were also very nice and the rest of the staff very hard working.

The pools were very clean and nice. Although the beach is not so pristine, the waters were crystal clear and beach area well maintained and kept clean. The rooms and amenities are also nice. The basketball court was very well lit and accessible. We had fun using that area for our team building activities.

Of course it’s not a first class place but I would highly recommend this place if you’re looking for a nice venue for company team building with a limited budget.

My husband and I had a relaxing getaway at Palm Beach Resort, the room we stayed in was clean it has basic amenities, the staff at Palm Beach were accommodating and attentive to all our needs. The resort offers buffet snack, dinner, breakfast and lunch to their guest ( di ka magugutom ) and the food were delectable. The resort has 2 infinity pools and the beach was a bit rocky but manageable so bring your aqua shoes for safety.
We will definitely recommend Palm Beach to our family and friends. Every penny we spent is worth it :)

Been here 2x already. The 1st time I remember having an issue on the 1st day, but the staff quickly handled it and the customer service and hospitality is extra, that I forgot what my issue was and completely enjoyed my time there. We went without the kids, but we're looking forward to to bringing them, as the resort is perfect for families too. I love the fact that full board meals are included in the rate, and that seriously takes away the stress of trying to choose what to order for lunch/dinner. The food is mostly great, and we love the all day Kapeng Barako. So what's left is to just literally relax and enjoy the beach.

Oh and their WIFI improved too, from sppeds of 20 to 60 MBPS depending on the area. So working from the beach will not be an issue. Just make sure you have authenticator on your phone if you are using office 365. There is Globe signal, you have to step on a rock at the beach to get one, it will be a challenge when it's high tide 😅

Casa Sofia has a great view. Casa Alba has no view of the ocean but palm trees and other trees surround the area, and the breeze and chirping birds will give you a calming feeling.

The new normal has changed our priorities and Palm Beach resort kept that in mind by practicing proper health protocol in their operation without sacrificing comfort and enjoyment. The saliva antigen test is provided for a fee when you enter the premises and a few minutes wait you can get the result. the staff are very courteous and attentive. It has an exclusive enclave and the shoreline is lined with cabanas that is exclusive per room (providing an assurance of safety). The food has good variety and sumptuous. They offer several water activities and have facilities for kids. The usage of the pool is limited to a certain number of people - scheduled in the front desk. It actually added to the enjoyment of swimming in the pool and a sense of exclusivity. I highly recommend this place to those seeking for a safe haven and a tranquil refuge from city life. (3 hours away from ncr). My family will surely be back!

Our overall experience was amazing! The staff were really nice and very accommodating. The rooms were very spacious and clean. A highlight about the bathroom was the toilet, shower room, and sink are separated. Making it accessible to everyone to use at the same time. The ocean view was fantastic especially when staying in the cabanas. They have strong free WiFi as well. The food was a buffet setup and it's very delicious. They also have a huge basketball court that could also be used as a bandminton court. They have 2 infinity pools as well. Will definitely go back!

We have stayed numerous times at Palm Beach and always enjoyed our stay. We expected the rooms to be clean and food to be good. They did not disappoint.

Actually, the rooms have a feeling of being new and refreshing but i can’t imagine it being really renovated because in general, it still looks the same. The feel is different maybe because there are painting or photos on the walls, the sheets and towels always look and feel new and in general, the room is very clean and neat.

Service is still great. Staff from receiving, brining your bags, at the dining area are smiling and helpful.

We love Palm Beach and while it does not have a long stretch of white san beach, the overall experience is always relaxing and feels like a real vacation.

Kudos to Palm Beach owners and staff ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Main reason why we chose this in spite of high price is because they told us that they require antigen test for all guests. Unfortunately, they removed the testing already.

Beach is very rocky. Aqua shoes’ needed. Beach is clean overall. The depth is good for dipping of body. Resort’s not facing neither west nor east- no sunrise nor sunset view.

Food is average and overpriced. Not enough for the guests! Only redeeming factor is that desserts taste good - also their soups.

Service is above average.

Room is also above average- spacious and clean. Choose beach front for a pretty view. Cabana is also good and shaded with palm trees.

If they only require antigen tests (like stated in the website), I would have rated this 4. But since it has no test, I think other resorts would have been better (ex. not rocky beach). Though the good thing is it’s pretty far from other resorts; hence, not crowded in the beach proper.

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for your recent stay at Palm Beach resort, and thanks for giving us 3 stars. You mentioned about the Antigen Test. Just to clarify, in our website you will see that we clearly stated that we will conduct Antigen test upon arrival at our resort - for guests who are unvaccinated or partially-vaccinated. For vaccinated guests, you just need to show your vaccination card. Perhaps there was confusion. We hope that you will treat this as an isolated incident, and not mar your perception of our resort. We do hope that you will still go back to our resort in the future. thanks, Ferdie

This was a terrific experience for our family! This was our second visit to the Palm Beach Resort, the last being in November of 2020. We had the Premier Room and it was clean, comfortable and spacious. The resort is very nice with several places for children to play, a basketball court and two beautiful pools. It was more open then our last trip here. What really stands out at this resort are the owner and her staff. They are super friendly and so very accommodating. The package we had included breakfast, lunch, a snack and dinner all on set menu. As my wife and I are both vegetarian most of the items on the menu were foods we don't eat. However, for every meal they came to us and said we are making you a special vegetarian dish - every meal! It was amazing how much effort they put into making our stay enjoyable - and they succeeded! We will definitely be going back - it is only a 3 hour drive from BGC and is an amazing break from metro Manila. We really enjoy this resort and the terrific people who work there. Thank you Palm Beach Resort!

Its as described in the other reviews. Great service, rooms are good, food is also good (buffet style), and the pools are good too. Do bring aqua shoes, my kids didnt enjoy the beach as it had lots of rocks. The pool with the slide was good but it broke down the next day (kids should bring their floaters so they can slide well. the water isnt too strong). Wifi wasnt too good on the phones but it worked with my laptop.

There is a saliva test for Covid before entering. I would suggest to have yourself tested as well before going because if one gets a positive result there...its a long ride back.

For Catholics there is a Mass at 4:30 PM on saturday. And for Pokemon players there is a gym and pokestop there.
