We spent 3 nights here in a room for 4 and it was just perfect.
All staff was very kind to us, always smiling and asking if we need help.

The room was big enough for 4 people and the bathroom huge !!

We went to South Cay, did the Sunset Cruise a Romantic dinner, Coron island Tour, and a massage and everything was so perfect.
The cruise was just amazing, we couldn't imagine better, we had unlimited champagne and canape and 2 musicians were there with their guitar.

The day on South Cay(their own private island) was wonderful, there are many sun-beds and a beach volley net, the buffet was very good and well served.

About the couple massage for all of us it was the best we have ever received and the kindness of the 2 therapists was great. They had put rose flowers everywhere.

Coron Island tour was so cool, the guide was so kind and helpful and went swimming with us every time, showing us the best spots to snorkel.

Regarding the breakfast, if was very good and was a lot of food.

We ate at night at the restaurant and the food was correct, could have been better.

The only thing we could argue on, was the price of the food and the tax and service fee we needed to add on top of all the prices which are already high. It would have been better if the prices already included everything.

Luckily all the rest was so great that we didn't think too much about it.

If you need a peacful place with a perfect infinity pool and an amazing landscape...there is only one place.. Busuanga bay lodge.

Thanks again for everything, and again thanks to the musicians for the song at the diner (yesterday - the beatles) and their joy of life on the sunset cruise.

I stayed here for 4 nights in November last year with a friend. The views are absolutely stunning. The rooms are slightly run down but the lobby, pool area and other facilities were kept in good condition.

The massages there were great as well.

As there is no where else to go apart from the resort everything from food to tours can get quite pricey but all in all I had a great time.

We had an AMAZING stay at BBL with a group of about 20 family members.

It's about a 45 min drive from Coron Town and the airport. Upon entering you are greeted to music, drinks and they put a banana leaf necklace around your neck.

The service is very good with smiles from most and the food and drinks were excellent from the restaurant.

The main pool and restaurant is absolutely breathtaking!! The views are just world class!!

Only gripe is there's no beach. The resort has its own gorgeous private beach island but it costs 3000php per person to spend the day there which includes all inclusive food and drinks.

Tours are also much more expensive from the resort. Grab all the tour flyers from the airport so you can book with them from the hotel. The only additional cost is the bus ride from the hotel but it's still way cheaper than the hotels tours. We went with Calamian Tours and they were fantastic!

There's free kayaking at the resort which is fun. There's some interesting points of interest to kayak to. Theres a stranded airplane directly in front of the resort and a mangrove forest to the left of the resort.

Overall we absolutely loved this place!

For most people planning a trip to Palawan, access to world class, white sand beaches should be a given. This was the#1 issue we had with this resort. It was NOT clearly stated on their website that there was no beach AND that guests aren't able to go in the water, surrounding the resort, due to jelly fish. They can take you by boat to a small island where you can spend the day at the beach, but for a price (approx $60/pp, including all you can eat lunch and drinks). I wish we were fully aware when we booked this resort. It would've been disastrous had it not been for the awesome staff who really took good care of us the entire week. We knew them by name. They are the reason for the 4-star rating in spite of the disappointment about not having access to the beach. The resort is well maintained, rooms are all clean and spacious and fronting the water. Very warm welcome and send off by the staff were added touches. Breakfasts were included with our room rate and they had a bar we would visit everyday for happy hour. Our favorite meals were off menu items, mostly catch of the day seafood dishes, delivered to our room. We spent the week booking sea and land tours, getting massages at the spa or lounging at the pool. Those are basically the only activities available to guests right now. Hopefully, in the future, they include access to South Cay beach as part of the package, especially when guests are staying a week or more. The only other feedback they need to work on is poor Wi-Fi (mine only worked when I sat right in front of the check in counter, no Wi-Fi anywhere else in the resort) and the resort did not have an emergency protocol for boats in distress. Our guide only had a very old, unreliable cellphone to call in emergencies. Luckily, another guest was able to contact the resort on her cellphone to request for emergency assistance. BBL should install radios in their boats and provide guides with proper training on what to do in an emergency. Overall, as long as guests are aware of the above-mentioned drawbacks, we would recommend this resort to others.

Dear JeppneyGirl,

Please allow us to thank you for writing this sincere review. We are bothered that some information about our had misled you. We are a bay side property with stunning views of greenery and oceans. We have an exclusive beach club with white sand beach which is 45 minutes away by outrigger boat for extra cost. We are still under negotiations with a network to improve our cellular signal and wifi connectivity. We also apologized that our guide's did not have proper communication tool during your tour but prompt measures had been taken already.

Thank you for commending our staffs. They are so glad to have read this review. Hopefully you will still consider our resort for your future trips.

Warm Regards,

Bususanga Bay Lodge Team

We stayed at the Sea Front Rooms during the peak season (New Year's Eve).
Rooms were spacious with complete amenities.
Pool had a beautiful elevated view of the bay and nearby islands.
Good complimentary facilities/amenities - kayak, paddle board, snorkeling gear, fishing rod, table tennis.
Convenient 10 minute boat ride to the dive shop. (great for divers!)
Warm & friendly service. Staff and management are flexible and try to accommodate requests.
Food was a bit pricey but quality and quantity was very good.
Tours / island hopping seemed quite expensive.
As it was peak season, service at the restaurants was quite slow so we would pre-order ahead of time and have it served at a specified time.
Overall-- beautiful, quiet, premium resort.

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
