It was worth the travel to getaway from the city.
Safe location, accomodating staff, awesome views
It was a very relaxing stay. It was as if time stood still (really, just slowed down) which was exactly what I was looking for.

Nice place very pretty, but I did have issues
The coral reef, the pools, the view
I liked pearl farm, but I had issues with the place. First off its under a lot of construction, so its a bit noisy and dusty in places. I had a lot of issues with the fact that the food choices are very limited. There needs to be more choices on where to eat. Your very secluded from everything so you are stuck at Pearl Farm. They need more restaurants, or food choices. It is not the cheapest place to stay too. I really liked the view the pools the snorkeling, and other activities. My biggest complaint was the prices of the food and the very limited selection there. I stayed there 3 days. I would recommend it for a day trip, or a one or two day trip at the most.

A nice little paradise treasure
Private, Beautiful Beach and People
It was such a pleasure staying there. It was Christmas but it still feels very private as the island is not overly-populated with tourists, but just enough to still enjoy all the facilities and most especially the beach. All the staff are great and helpful! The food is also great. Samal house is so nice to stay in as well. Will definitely consider going back!

Complete resort
Had fantastic snorkeling options right near the shore, and the fish were in abundance and were following us even to shallow waters.

Overrated hotel
Great massage, good view, quiet
I think this is an overrated hotel. For me, one time experience is enough. Overall, staff are friendly but service is slow. Buffet food is not much variety and not much tasty. Not worth it for the P1,100 paid for the buffet lunch. Ala carte food took 1 hour to be served. Maintenance is ongoing thus a lot of workers moving around. I felt that the hotel is not private in this regard. People looking at you while taking a swim. "Hot tub" as one of the facilities is not accurate. The jacuzzi there is working but not hot. Massage at P800 pesos is great. I think the best I ever got. Rooms are clean and nice as well. Our room is on the water thus we can feed the fishes and had great view of the ocean. They don't promote exercising as they asked us to ride a boat to the parola which we can reach faster walking than waiting for the boat. Good experience but not to be repeated for the high hotel rates. With the maintenance ongoing, they should have decreased the hotel rates.

Good and relaxing beach atmosphere.
beach location, good facilities, nice ambiance.
Generally good and relaxing. It was what we expected. Some facilities had ongoing construction though and was not available.

Quiet and secluded hotel for relaxation
Great view, good service, relaxing
Pearl Farm was a nice and relaxing treat. It was very easy getting to the resort via their private boat. The rooms are very nice and overlook the ocean and mountain. Since this is more of a relaxation retreat, there isn't much to do except relax, go to the spa, swim at the pool/beach, eat, or take a boat tour and snorkel. If you want more adventure you can book transportation and see more of the island. One of the restaurants/bars and pool was under renovation while I was there so I didn't get the full Pearl Farm experience, but it was still nice. The WiFi also didn't work too well anywhere so I just used my phone's 3G, which was fine because I didn't come here to sit online all day. The food at the restaurant is good, but definitely has resort pricing, so plan to spend more than you are used to elsewhere. I went with my friend and his wife, and we booked a snorkeling trip for just the 3 of us. Our private boat took us around a few hot spots and we even got to go to the Clam Farm where they have the famous giant clams. This was a lot of fun and I would recommend taking this trip. Since this is mostly a family and couples type of resort, there isn't much socializing. I wouldn't recommend coming here alone unless you wanted to get away from it all and keep to yourself.

wonderful place and friendly staff
seaview, peacefulness and relaxing
It is a great experience to stay in Pearl Farm Beach Resort. The view is great and the staff is friendly, especially Miguel(JR) in the acqua center! We had a great snorkeling tour with him. The only shortness is the food there, the buffet is lack of variety and costs a lot! Room services is much better. After all, Pearl Farm is a nice place and we would like to come back in the future.

Relaxing and exciting.
View, staff, service
its still in renovation so what we can do is very limited. Great serenading of the singer during dinner. Great choice of songs for the 80's but the kids can't relate.. Very nice shuttle driver.

Great place, great staff...
location, staff, peaceful..
it was fun. The place we have at hilltop is just fine. But I'm expecting much more with the kind of rate they have and yes a little bit expensive.. The shuttle cab driver makes our day.
