Beautiful eco-tourism Paradise”

Crystal clear water, 4 different beaches, turtles

Me and my husband booked at Secret Paradise Resort for a night but we had to extend our stay as first step at the resort we fell inlove with this place already and felt like like we dont wanna leave this place without seeing every bits of it. The four different white sandy beaches is so beautiful, staying in turtle beach gives you more privacy and peaceful. kayaking to sanctuary and hide away beach was amazing mostly when you see turtles underwater. the water was so clear and colorful, corals were beautiful and had to snorkel morning and afternoon as many beautiful underwater creatures to see from fishes to turtles. The cottages was lovelyn and clean with balcony and front view of sunset, just watching the fishes jumping ups and downs from the crystal clear water was fun. Restaurant food was great got different choices every night crab, shrimp, fish, squid as part of 3 course meal for only 595 great value. Eventhough they are a remote area the fisherman delivers different fresh sea foods everyday. All you wanted was in this resort with only 6 cottages from the cofy cottages with aircon, hot water shower after swimming and wifi. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE FOR ITS ECO-TOURISM AND ITS BEAUTY AND RELAXING ATMOSPHERE.

Turtle Sanctuary in Paradise ”

Fantastic. Truly paradise. Excellent

This is our second visit at secret paradise resort As this place was a great place for our vacation in palawan philippines. This place made our holiday fantastic. The very first day, travelling to the resort via port barton road was fun using a 4x4 provided by the resort if you book your transfer with them as before we go through sabang by boat, the boat ride through the port barton islands was amazing. Step on a white soft sandy beach of the resort, the staff welcomes you with a refreshing drinks and gives you information of the resort amenities and activities. Our cottage was lovely and clean native style cottage but with comportable bed with aircon toilet was clean and modern with hot shower 24hrs oh the power runs 5.30pm till 7:00 in the morning so you enjoy the aircon or breeze of ceiling fan. Sitting down in your balcony beachfront and watch the sunset go down or just watched the the shining stars at night. Food in the restaurant was tasty and good and you have a lot of choice in their menu or in the special set meal they have everyday fresh seafood brought by the fisherman. I love snorkelling here as i have seen lots of fish and turtles and beautiful color corals which grown more from last year i have been here mostly the turtles they have a lot now. Island hopping organized to the resort was great whole day in the islands they prepared your food and drinks so you just have to sit and relax or go snorkelling! I highly recommend this place as there are too many things to do activities, kayaking, snorkelling, island hopping or hiking to the viewpoint which overlook the turtlebay and other islands of port barton. We will be back again to this place Thanks for making our stay at your resort like a 5 star!

Excellent vacation to a paradise”

Beach, snorkeling, turtles

Travelling going to the resort was fun as the resort van driver treat us like VIP’s and very friendly and funny. Our boat ride was great seeing all the other islands on the way to the resort. We got to a large beautiful cove, the boats man said, this is all secret paradise resort, all 4 private beaches for you and 9 other guest. We upgraded to a superior cottage, as it was much bigger with air-con and Tv. Lying on the balcony hammock after we had a big lunch with the view of the beach and the bay in-front of us was great. Latter we went snorkeling with free equipment and saw, not one, but 2 turtles. I posted one picture here. The coral was also beautiful color. The fresh sea food was perfect. We extended 3 nights as we could not leave this place. Try the sauna, hiking, island hopping and free kayaks to beach 4. Note: we saw turtles on our first 2 days, but not our last 2. the manager said, we operates and protects turtle bay, but all turtles and fish are free to go where they want so some days even she doesn’t see. Well done for protecting turtle bay and the forests around. We will be back soon and hope this review helps.

Eco-friendly Paradise with no Crowd”

Beaches, cottage, everything

firstly i want to say well done for the protection program,the resort does for their own marine sanctuary. there are not many places left inthe world that care about the environment. we thought about booking the resort private transfer as its stated on this website it was cheaper, but after reading some of their guest reviews .saying it is expensive, we decided to do it all ourselfs, which is a big mistake. arriving in puerto princesa airport we saw the sign official toursm rates is 5,500 pesos to port barton we got the price down to 5,200 but had to wait long time at the airport for driver to take us. arriving in port barton the tourism informed us there is no boat available as we arrive late in the afternoon all boats are busy. price 1,800 for the boat ride we did not want to wait another few more hours so have decided to call the secret paradise and we was lucky as there boat was available which cost 1,600 only but had to wait for them 45minutes to come and pick us up and drive us to the resort, getting to the resort was fantastic as staff welcomed you with a big smile and make you feel at home. the food was lovely and tasty and every night was a different specialty. the owners greet us and such a nice couples. i will be back with my family as this is a great vacation ever in Port barton palawan.

PARADISE WITH TURTLES - NOWHERE BEATS THIS !”

unique peaceful beautiful unspoilt paradise nature reserve, baby turtles released into sea, snorkelling with fantastic fish, turtles & corals

Paradise with all the extras, aircon, hot water, mini bar and tv/dvd also - but I didn’t use. Staff very friendly and helpful – nothing too much trouble. Food very tasty and varied – you could choose from the large menu or I especially enjoyed the different 3 course meal special of the day at a very reasonable price compared to other island resorts I visited. Fresh different sea food delivered most days from the local fisherman, delicious. Once you’ve paid for the cottage, most other things are free, snorkel gear, kayaks, tea/ coffee, WIFI and coconut oil (although there were no flies but still smelt great on my skin). Private transport from the airport was an adventure and I thought expensive, but after talking to the owner, he explained that the resort transport is at least 10-20 % cheaper than the tourism official rates. I checked up on this online at the resort with travel agents and it was true. Plenty to do in this beautiful calm bay – walk to the fantastic viewpoint and also the local fishing village, kayak to 2 other private Robinson Crusoe beaches for utter seclusion, (the resort has 4 private beaches here in their own 2 coves) sauna, massage, billiards and island hopping to the most fantastic fish, corals, waterfall with lunch cooked on a beach. The 2 highlights of my holiday in Philippines was snorkelling every morning in turtle bay and also seeing baby turtles in the resorts turtle sanctuary, then releasing them at sunset into the sea. I recommend book early, as I had to book though 2 different online travel agents just to get 2 nights stay here, but extended 6 more nights due to a cancellation. I love this unique place and congratulate them on all the awards this year they have for eco-tourism, can’t wait to go back! Best so far in the Philippines. Have good holiday!!!
