BBL hosted our wedding accommodating over 100 guests, many of whom stayed at the hotel or the weekend. The view and setting were fantastic, working with Thomas and Roeland to set up the F&B (outside caterer), decorations, and sound systems was a breeze, and negotiating the contract with them was mostly painless. Our reception was brilliant and the memory of a lifetime. One drawback is communications through net and through cell phone is very difficult out at BBL, so factor that in to your planning schedule if hosting a big event there.

The most idyllic & peaceful place we`ve been to so far in Philippines. The journey from the airport is around 1 hr, but you can get the sea plane straight to the hotel marina. The greeting at reception was fantastic with most staff and resident acoustic band there to welcome us. The rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean and all have sea view. The infinity pool is perched high up at the pavilion and offers fantastic views across the bay. There are two places to eat, the Pavilion and the marina level bar, both offer a good selection of food and drink and everything we ordered was delicious. What really makes this place special is the staff, I have never encountered such friendly and knowledgeable staff across the board anywhere in the world. Their greetings were warm and friendly everywhere we went, well done whoever trains them. The hotel offers various outings and we chose a simple island hop to their exclusive beech club on South Cay. On the day we went, only myself and wife were their so we had the whole island to ourselves which was paradise. The staff who accompanied us cooked a fantastic lunch consisting of fresh seafood, chicken, rice and salad and were on hand to offer cocktails throughout our visit. The whole day was truly memorable. So sad when it was time to leave, but again the staff gave us a great send off. I have nothing negative to say about our stay and would whole heartily recommend this place for a romantic break. Thank you BBL for making us feel special and look forward to a return visit early in 2017 !

Room Tip: All rooms have sea view, the two bedroom ones have own splash pool

German GM Thomas Mayer and his team are doing an excellent job managing this wonderful place and taking very personalized care of their guests. Thomas greets each guest and upon leaving each guest is escorted by live music.
They training of the staff is exceptional, someone sees you they always greet you and ask you how they may help you. Always servicing you with a smile.
Food was great, slightly above our expectation.
From local adobo to imported delicacies like Spanish Manchego , they really try to please you.
Food and beverage prices for sure are above average as well, count another 50% of your room price on top.
We stayed at a private pool villa which is fantastic, with about 100 sqm and 2 very large bedrooms with walk on closets.

The only slight down side is the high pricing of the activities which is 2-4 times what you would pay in Coron. But any excursion to Coron island is too far away from the lodge ( 2 hrs by banka boat) hence stay 3 days in Coron and then relax 4 days at BBL. We did a local excursion to the private South Cay Island with lunch which was absolutely fantastic. Besides the pricing a must do!
Scuba diving is organized and competitively priced by D divers across the bay. They pick you up and bring you back to the resort by boat. We did 4 local wreck dives, all perfect.

Overall one of the best vacations we have had.

Stayed: November 2016

After the rigors of a plane ride, van transfer, boat ride, comes pure relaxation as you enter this getaway island. Right away you`d feel rejuvenated. A golf cart will bring you to your room overlooking the lagoon. This is Greece in palawan.
The staff are the frendliest i`ve met. This is a place that for couples, groups and kids.
