Busuanga Bay Lodge, Palawan Resort is part of the integrated resort enclave in Busuanga, Coron, Palawan called Puerto del Sol. We are located in the southwestern part of Busuanga Island, in northern Palawan. You can easily escape from the pressures of city living by a 45-minute flight from key hubs like Manila, Cebu, and Davao - or by an even shorter flight from the provincial capital of Puerto Princesa. Busuanga is rich in biodiversity, and so the resort was envisioned to promote and support such a beautiful natural community. The Bermuda-inspired architecture and the name of our boutique getaway are from the developer's desire to initially create a fishing retreat. However, this activity is only one of many that Busuanga has to offer. Renewable energy and sustainable design are among the key thrusts in the development. Indeed, we have created an oasis in this semi-remote part of Busuanga Island in Palawan by ensuring that guests can enjoy all the modern conveniences onsite as well as have the easiest access to luxury adventures in the area's on-land and underwater attractions. Inside the resort, guests will be pampered with luxurious Spa Services and offered an extensive wine selection from the in-house Wine Cellar.

After a full week of all-day boat rides, tricycle rides to dinner in Coron town, and van rides throughout the lush countryside, we were ready to cap our stay with a few days of tranquility to soak in the beauty of Busuanga. Hands down, BBL stuns with a view like no other. Every corner of the dining pavilion which spilled into the pool area promised a unique view of the bay from sunrise to sunset. Upon nightfall, when the view disappeared into a black stillness, the pavilion turned intimate, with tables filled with flowers from the grounds, candlelight, and music from a handsome trio. In addition to its views, BBL’s sheer spaciousness contributed to this feeling of luxury and relaxation. Rooms are clean and minimalist, with a wall of glass opening to the bay and all the floor space one needed to spread out. The bathrooms are equally bright and large, with a shower area that felt more like a separate room, and long uninterrupted countertops on both sides of the sink. The biggest luxury of all came from the staff, who spoiled us with their attention, their warmth, and their willingness to grant a special request: live music was reserved for specific occasions, but on our last night, my parents got their wish of being serenaded just one more time. THANK YOU BBL—all of you--from the bottom of our hearts!

BBL really made our vacation significantly memorable. We enjoyed every minute of stay from sincere WELCOME Greetings, to their spectacular pool. All the staff that we met made us feel at home, they were all courteous and friendly. Mr. Joaquin was extremely accomodating. BBL is a perfect choice especially during the last few days of stay after CORON experience. The entire place was clean, rooms were luxurious with a perfect beach view, really a comfortable place to stay. Serenity at its best!

Had a great stay. Beautiful resort, friendly staff surrounded by some of the best places to snorkel and sightsee. Food was good, and they were happy to adjust to our taste. Bungalow we stayed in was comfortable clean and had nice amenities. Big thank you to Rollie and Solomon for great tours!

I spent a couple of nights here. It's a beautiful property, with amazing views, conveniently right in the town of Busuanga. The room was comfortable. Breakfast was included and was fine, as were several other meals I had there. Service was very good. The staff are the friendliest and possibly the best hosts I have been cared for. I would definitely come back and highly recommend staying at Busuanga Bay Lodge.

I suspect this was once a stellar resort. Amazing views and super gracious and friendly staff. But nearly everything else was cut-rate. Rooms are fitted out with 3 star furnishing (vinyl sofa?), we did not have refrigerator in room (there was an ugly open hole in wall where it used to be), old dated sliding glass doors on villas, there was only one 3 seat buggy to transport guest up and down the very steep road to rooms (the other one was in for repair?… would think a “5-star” resort like this would have at least a backup unit), and no Wi-Fi in rooms… we had to purchase such and even then it was very lame. Even the lobby bathrooms were in rough shape, badly installed plumbing and rusting fixtures. Not a good sign. Lastly, and most importantly, you are isolated (which under the right circumstances would be awesome) and the menu is very limited and at best average quality. I’d swear the pizza was from frozen pre-made. We were booked for four night and left after one as we could not imagine relaxing with this menu the entire stay. To be fair, we heard they were short a chef. Seems owners need to step up and update to 5-star accommodations and sort food issue… maybe tough after several years of pandemic, but critical. Thus, I suggest doing pre-reservation homework ahead of time and seeing if these issues are resolved. Hope for the staff’s sake that owners reboot this wonderful location.

The hotel does not live up to the high ratings in the reviews. If you don't rent a car (there are very few rental units in Coron), you are isolated, the center of Coron is 1 hour away. , regardless of the number of guests traveling in the van. There is no internet in the rooms, they offer a modem for about 125.00 pesos a day, which does not work and the internet in the reception and restaurant stops working all the time. Breakfast is a joke. What was included is 1 bread, with 2 eggs and 1 banana, if you want to order something, they charge the part. The restaurant is horrible, everything we ordered was bad, pizza (horrible), sandwiches (dry) and Filipino food (the worst in 3 weeks of travel we tried). We ordered 2 bottles of wine from the menu that they didn't have in stock, the third bottle I saw that it was open and when I tried it, it was vinegary. The hotel tours cost almost 10x the value of the tours sold in the center and they still charge fees to enter the tours separately (and the worst, very overpriced). The physical structure looks like a luxury hotel, but the towels are old, thin and stained, as well as the bed linen. On the penultimate day, when we returned from the center of Coron, the dirt road that leads to the hotel (already inside the hotel property) was flooded and we had to cross it on foot, after 30 minutes the hotel sent a motorbike to pick up 1 person per turn. This hotel was the only bad experience we had out of the 6 hotels we stayed at in the Philippines. Don't believe the reviews!!

We had a two-bedroom villa at the hotel overlooking the bay. The rooms, the lounge/kitchen area and bathrooms were exactly as advertised. The clean, well-maintained private pool, just outside the lounge area, could also be accessed from each bedroom. There was every possible amenity and, being down the hill from the reception/restaurant, there was a golf buggy transfer available at any time of day or night. Once we requested transport it arrived within two minutes every time. We only stayed for 2 nights and were sorry to leave. Breakfasts were very good, as were other meals, however, if we had stayed longer we might have liked a more extensive menu. The staff were, without exception, friendly, helpful and cheerful and went out of their way to provide excellent service. The location of the hotel is perfect; it is secluded, tranquil and offers spectacular views over the bay. We arrived at the hotel following an active week on a yacht and this was the perfect way to relax.

The staff at BBL are all friendly, professional and provide outstanding service to the guests. Our first contact for the booking was Nicha who was very approachable and committed to answering any questions and making sure that our stay was planned exactly to meet our needs. All staff from the reception desk, restaurant and bar, the gardeners, cleaners and drivers have a smile, make you feel welcome and that they are there for you and will go above and beyond to make your stay the best it can be. In the evenings the entertainment provided was high quality and enjoyable. The location and outlook over the bay are breathtaking and you are ideally placed to take advantage of the infinity pool, kayaks and paddleboards provided. The on-site, highly regarded PADI dive shop provides a very convenient opportunity for divers (new and experienced) to explore the many wrecks in the area. Although not a diver myself, all the guests who went diving with Pirate Divers spoke very highly of their experience. I would highly recommend BBL to anyone visiting the area as the premier place to stay.

After a three-day journey from Coron Town Proper, my husband and I arrived at BBL . It was wonderful since the setting and scenery were very peaceful and the members of staff were really approachable. I can't overstate how much more relaxing our stay was since we used their whole body spa! We assumed we were the only guests there that night because it was so calm, but to my surprise, 14 rooms are occupied! We made the mistake of staying for only one night, which wasn't long enough. We had a flight the next day back to Manila, so we could not stay any longer. Without a doubt, we'll return here soon!
