Written this same review in facebook.

Spent 3 days and 2 nights in this place with a group of friends and I've got to say that it is amazing. The location is remote, perfect for those seeking privacy and the serenity of nature without the hassle and noise of city life. This is the true definition of a get-away trip.

The staff is great, very accommodating and friendly. They remember you by name and by face and does not fail to deliver a smile. It seems like everything is personalized because they certainly met all of our expectations and more.
For the activities, you get to visit the hauntingly beautiful sunken Japanese battle ship and at the same time gaze at the splendor of well preserved coral reefs. The hotel offers for you to go to this in style with their speed boat. A great plus is the private beach as well with access to free access to kayaking.

Finally, something to definitely remember are the rooms. Spacious, modern and well equipped with everything you need in a hotel room.

Will definitely go back.

Room Tip: We got the rooms near the villa. Spacious enough and generally peaceful.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
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. ... more   less
