The island is the true definition of a paradise off the beaten path. Our experience was beyond amazing! We stayed for 5 days and wish we stayed longer. My husband and I travel a lot and have been to many beautiful resorts in many countries but our experience in Flower Island… just WOW. As soon as we arrived via speed boat, the staff greeted us with a warm welcome, along with the resort dog RJ. The newly built infinity pool was also an added surprise to us. Every single person who works in the island seem genuinely happy, it was obvious how much they love their jobs because it truly showed in their service. It was the absolute Filipino hospitality. They were a big part why our stay was so special. I got to know some of the girls who work there, and felt like family in such a short time. Special thank you to Mhicka, Kim, Rosalyn, Che, Manager Ela, Sheila, and Jeralyn (she even packed us some of her delicious homemade macaroons to take with us) and all the other staff. The boat drivers caught us fresh sea urchins when I mentioned that I love uni. Truly a special surprise. They were all wonderful. Everyone went above and beyond to make sure our stay would be memorable. I read some complaint reviews about the food (which worried us at first) but it was the complete opposite experience for us. Food was absolutely delicious! We had a lot of fresh seafood (shrimp, crabs, lobster), also some meat dishes, fresh fruits, soups, and homemade delicious desserts. My only suggestion is to have more vegetables dishes/ salad options along with the main dishes. The island itself was breath taking! The beach was so clean and water was so clear. All the villas are facing the ocean and has a hammock for relaxation. You’ll hear relaxing nature sounds all day. A MUST- visit the Pearl Farm, you’ll have a great appreciation for South Sea Asian pearls. We found it educational and fascinating. The visit also came with an island picnic, prepared by the staff which was so special and delicious. They also took us snorkeling in the coral garden which was absolutely beyond beautiful!!!! My husband and I are beyond grateful that we found this island and we will definitely be back with our family and friends

Can't be any happier for choosing Flower Island for our first beach trip since the pandemic! We were fully relaxed, the staff took care of everything, and the place was absolutely amazing. BOOKING: We got the 4D/3N package which included the two-way flight, land and sea transfer, full board meals, and water activities back in April but had to rebook multiple times due to travel restrictions. Dealing with the reservations officer was hassle free and she was very helpful & responsive to all our inquiries. LOCATION: Only about 1.5 hrs. away from the new El Nido airport! It was close enough to the mainland but secluded enough for privacy. We also felt very secure despite the remoteness. TRANSFERS: Since everything was arranged by the resort, we were off to the island in no time. Van and boat experience were both smooth and convenient. Bottled water, life vest, and towels were provided in the speedboat. Each took about 40 mins., both through scenic routes. ACCOMMODATION: Pristine, comfortable, and spacious! The shower area was our favorite; it was extremely spacious and had two sinks. There were a lot of outlets in our villa so charging our gadgets wasn't a problem. Loved that our villa faced the sea and had great spots for lounging. Pillows were comfortable but the mattress was a bit too firm for our liking. Nevertheless, we appreciated the daily turndown service. Also, if I may add, water pressure was great and there were no brownouts/electric interruption which is quite common when vacationing in Palawan. FOOD: Everything was divine! Contrary to older reviews here, every dish was thoughtfully prepared and made use of fresh ingredients. We loved the balance of vegetables, seafood, and chicken plus great carbs in the form of pasta, bread, and the occasional rice (we opted for this only for our breakfast set). Servings were hefty and I can't remember a dish we didn't like. They also brew their own coffee and it was great each time. STAFF and SERVICE: One of the best things about our stay in the island were the helpful and caring staff! We were the only guests in the island and they took care of us so well w/o being overbearing. They were so thoughtful and made sure we were comfortable and that we're able to maximize our stay. They put out sunbeds at the beach for us and offered to take us to a great snorkeling site just when we thought we can't do any water activities due to the weather. There was an LPA the night before and morning was quite gloomy but we're glad we trusted them when they said the weather would take a 180-degree turn by the time we finished breakfast. They were right and we're glad to have taken a short boat ride to the snorkeling site to see corals, fish, clams, and a turtle! My companion's not a good swimmer but they kept her company and made sure she enjoyed paddling around the area. They even picked up sea urchins for us to enjoy at the boat...fresh uni with beer on a sunny weekend, how perfect! The staff was great and made our stay truly special. We can't wait to go back with friends and show what the island has to offer.

A pristine, serene, and activity-packed resort. Getting there is an adventure itself that you will definitely enjoy. When you take off from Manila, you will be treated to a scenic trip if you book either a helicopter or a seaplane. One can also fly commercial via El Nido or Puerto Princesa; it is a fun-filled trip either way. Upon arriving at the resort, you will be welcomed by the warmth of the team working on the island. While at the resort, you will not see yourself asking for anything. They will provide everything you need. The service on this island is top-notch. Their gestures would "wow" you, including the fantastic food served at the restaurant. The beachfront Villa that I got is well-appointed, clean, and very comfortable. I planned to kayak, dive, or paddleboard on my first day but somehow forgot about it when we did their island hopping tour and some hiking. Every island is a paradise, a sight to behold! On the second day, I swam with the reef sharks at the beach in front of my Villa. The biodiversity around the island is amazing! The employees made it hard for me to leave the island. Their service, warmth, and hospitality are genuine. Che, with the rest of the team, made my stay an unforgettable one.

There’s a place that’s truly spectacular and magical hidden away in the islands close to el nido. The home of the golden pearl. More importantly the story of the pearl is truly a special one. It’s definitely a must try.

I have stayed there for 4 nights with my family and we all had an amazing experience. From the moment we arrived on the Island everything was perfect. Very welcoming and always helpful staff. The place is a truly Gem and it is prefect for relaxing. You can either snorkel and/or do all the water activities and please do not miss the visit of the Pear Farm. It is really worth it. I will definitively go back there !!!

Flower Island was exactly the retreat we wanted and needed. There was a taifun going through the Philippines but luckily the only effect on us was that it was cloudy. The island itself has plenty to offer for some laid back days in luxury (light house, massage temple, walking paths, pearl farm excursion, water sports, relaxed cocktail bar etc.) The food can also be vegetarian and vegan on demand and was delicious every day. On the Pearl Farm tour don't forget to go snorkelling at the coral garden! The communication in advance could improve concerning that it takes a long time for answers via e-mail and then some information was contradictory. Eventually everything worked out except for one transfer from a bus station to the Taytay pier. There we took a taxi after waiting for too long and discovered afterwards that nobody would have picked us up anyways. Prepare for some huge flora and fauna on the island! It was amazing to see so many exotic plants and animals. Accordingly one has to be cautious with food and scents (e.g. massage oil) inside the rooms as it may attract ants and similar right inside your suitcase. The staff was incredibly nice and friendly and once we were there also extremely helpful.

This was our last stop on our Philippines vacation and no doubt it was the best place. Truly an amazing stay far away from everything sorrounded by beautiful scenery and friendly staff. Wifi is available at the bar for does in need of an online fix. Our cottage was right at the beach (no 11) and was spacious and looked newly renovated with a great "outdoor" bathroom. From the balcony we could relax in our hammock and rocking chair overlooking the beautiful blue sea. Note there is no AC but a fan can be provided and that was sufficient during the night. The beach and sea is amazing and heavinly blue - right for a postcard. Snorkeling is really good here and we saw stingrays, baby black tip reef shark, dragon fish, needle fish and many other colorful fish. On a picnic to another island we also snorkled at coral garden no1 which had a lot of the same things to see but the corals were more colourful and amazing and the reef was much bigger to explore. We also spotted turtles. Food is offered as a buffet which was simple but enjoyable. Quality instead of quantity. For dinner it would be nice if they offered a seafood and fresh fish bbq which would be our only real recommended improvement. A small but nice snack menu is offered during the day. This place comes with our highest recommendation.

Will write as top 10 positives and then top 10 negatives. 1. Remoteness 2. Tranquility 3. Friendliness of staff 4. Beautiful private island with crystal clear waters that host turtles, stingrays, plenary of fish and coral reef. 5. Great massages at a good price 6. Spectacular tower with 360 views of sea and islands, all the latter appearing unoccupied, which in itself makes you feel more remote and removed from everyday life. 7. Was literally barefoot for 5 days. 8. One amazing freshly cooked lunch and fantastic snorkelling after a visit to the pearl farm. 9. The overall island is kept in pristine condition 10. 10. No children on the island! 10 negatives 1. Bathroom in serious need of an update.. A mouldy shower that lacked hot water and with a shower head that reached to my navel. The overall bathroom was like a grotty hostel. For £250 per night I’d expect something more up to standard (not something for £25 per night!) 2. Canned vegetables, meat stews and hot soups at mealtimes?! (In 33 degree heat!) the food is so basic. You’re screwed if you’re a vegetarian or vegan! (It was a buffet style service, but VERY ltd in choice. 3. No water or any beverage of any description in the rooms, or even a fridge for that matter! 4. For an eco friendly island I was saddened to see barrel after barrel of oil leave the island on the last day whilst sunbathing on the beach. The stench of it was disgusting. 5. I have to write about the food again!.. we enjoyed an incredible fresh meal on the pearl farm trip (owned by flower island and picnic supplied by the latter)... why on earth cannot the amazing fresh mango salad and fresh tuna be also served on Flower island. It’s simple and easy. Instead of deep fried frozen prawns and pork chops! (Obviously the latter was frozen as we never saw a pig!) 6. Breakfast.. wow. How awful. Porridge or soggy cornflakes with warm whole milk from a carton, or a full fry up as an alternative!.. oh and concentrated fruit juice. Is it so hard to have freshly squeezed mango or orange juice??.. and a fresh yogurt?.. and maybe an option of alternative egg, rather than fried?! (Geez, I sound like I’m whinging, but it’s just so easy to provide simple healthy food!) To be fair, I can’t get to 10 on the negatives and there is no point in being petty for the sake of it. Overall we enjoyed the ease of and relaxed nature of our stay, but still only give it 3 out of 5 stars as food and accommodation are the bedrock of any decent resort and these were major drawbacks... such a shame..

We had 4 nights here. it is a lovely island and you can snorkel off the beach - with turtles, fish, coral and stingrays. There is also a day trip to a pearl farm and an even better coral reef that is worth doing. the location is remote - it is a 4000 peso speed boat ride each way from Taytay so getting there is quite expensive. The island has a hill that is worth climbing for the view - especially at sunset The main disappointment were the meals- you cant eat anywhere else and each meal is 800 peso per person + drinks (about 16 USD) We were even charged for a cup of tea after dinner. The food was limited and often cold, which given there were no more than 10 of us on the island was quite surprising. Our other frustration was that there was no water in the rooms (and so no making your own cup of tea or coffee) - they had a ban on plastic bottles but didn't leave jugs of water and glasses in the room - you had to ask EVERY day for this. The staff were lovely but not proactive in any way. They wold benefit from a good on site manager That aside - it is peaceful, no children are allowed, the water quality is good, and the huts perfectly adequate and located right on the beach. if you are a diver, they are all set up for you. I read on trip advisor it is a 3 star hotel - this seems right, though it charges more like a 4 star, especially once you add meals and transfers
