Very good place to relax, comfortable stay”
The management and staff has been most helpful in arranging our tours and transport. It made our trip convenient. Our room is always clean and the resort is clean and well-maintained. The food is always delicious and the relaxing and tranquil atmosphere made our stay more enjoyable. The resort is also good for divers.
Good hotel for a few days to rest and relax”
We had a nice stay at the Cooper's Beach Resort. The hotel has a good location, no too far from Puerto Princesa City and airport, but in a very quiet and relax area. The hotel staff and managers are extremely nice and always ready to help and provide options for tours or activities. Cooper's Beach Resort is perfect if you want to rest and relax. However you can also do fun activities such as diving or island hopping. Overall, the resort is a good option for relaxing holiday.
nice home away home in remote and quiet location”
The second time for me stay at this resort. The staff still remembered me and I could feel I was warmly-welcomed. The staff are as good as the last time, all of them quite accommodating, helpful, and friendly. All the parts of the resort are well-maintained, clean and very good for relaxing. Thanks to all the cooper's resort staff for making my stay in Palawan great. I really hope I can see you all again some time soon
Great service and clean rooms”
I will always remember the resort for its hospitable staff. We had to transfer rooms though because the water pressure in our first room was not enough even just to flush the toilet. We were the only guests at that time. I could imagine that the water supply will be a bigger problem with more guests checked in.
Warm and sincere hospitality and service”
I stayed at Coopers beach resort for 5 days. I am really satisfied with everything at this resort. All the staffs were very friendly and helpful, but never being overfamiliar. They are always polite for the guests. Also, when I requested something, I could always get the swift response. The room is very clean and big enough. As for the breakfast and dinner, they are providing the buffet for the guests. The number of the choice of the dishes are enough, I could also try and enjoy some kinds of local Filipino food. This resort is far from the city as mentioned on their website (1hr drive from the center of the city), but instead of bustling night life on any other resorts, here could enjoy the relaxing time being surrounded by the beautiful greenery and great sea view. Of course they are providing the transportation service to the center of the city, if you want you can go to the city for shopping or etc anytime you want, also they can arrange some attraction tours, such as underground river tour and island hopping for the guests. I am sure if I can have chance to Palawan again, I would like to stay at this coopers beach resort again.
Amazing spot away ”
The owner really makes you feel welcome. We usually went to bed a couple of hours then the rest of the guests, but they always kept the bar open for us and we felt so welcome. Great facilities and we went diving and island hopping with them. Both was great experiences.
Loved coopers. Great chill out spot. ”
Stayed for six days. Loved it. Staff were great and the owners frank and Lydia were very welcoming and friendly. Kevin their son was very knowledgeable with the dive sites and we enjoyed the dives. The room was clean and comfortable and any problems were fixed quickly. The grounds are meticulously maintained. Dinners are changed every night at the buffet restaurant. Although we found the breakfast a little light on the plate with only very small servings of bacon if you chose not to go with the buffet. Food and drinks are quite pricey in comparison to other hotels and while you can arrange tours easily or hire the scooters there are limits on where you can go. About fifty km from the city which is great for a few days but unless all you want to do is dive or chill it does become a little boring after four days. All In all I would fully recommend it though for a three or four day stay. Would definitely go back
We really liked our stay here. In the beginning we thought that it was a little too far away from the city, but being away from the city is good because it is peaceful and there is not traffic. You just lay out in the sun and relax. The resort also provides excursions like scuba diving and island hopping, which I highly recommend. The little islands in Honda Bay is beautiful. The staff is really friendly too! The food is traditional filipino food but they serve all the meals because the resort is far away from other restaurants and the city.
We had a wonderful stay at this resort. Everyone is very nice and accommodating. The place is like an hour away from the city but if you're looking for a quiet and relaxing place to stay, then Cooper's Beach resort is highly recommended.
Lovely 4 days”
We had a really nice 4 days at Coopers Beach, everyone so helpful and friendly. Rooms were good size with comfy bed. Only downside for us was the beach as swimming in the sea was impossible with the Jellyfish and the location is a little isolated but otherwise very nice hotel.
Peaceful, relaxed place to stay”
We enjoyed our stay at Cooper's beach resort. It is a bit out of the way but this makes it a peaceful & relaxing place to stay. The island hopping tour they have is awesome with excellent snorkelling, a great day! They also organised & drove us to meet a tour to the underground river which was really good. The wi-fi was a bit hit & miss. The food was good, buffet style with a pretty good selection. The staff were friendly. I'd recommend staying here if you like to chill out and relax.
Small and friendly place”
This place is good for a short break or en route to El Nido. The rooms are large and clean with nice bathrooms. We did island hopping trip which was great day out. Food is buffet but still good value.
Great place, comfortable and well catered.”
Brilliant, I'd stay again and will recommend it. They couldn't do enough for us and organised transfers and tours. The good was really good. It's well managed, spotlessly clean and well situated away from the city.
Sweet secret paradise ”
Our stay at the Cooper's is one to remember. The staff were very personal and welcoming. Very good value for money. Clean, comfortable and just a tranquil paradise. We highly recommend and certainly to enjoy again in our next visit.
Wonderful Stay at Cooper's Beach”
We had an overnight stay at Cooper's beach with my Husband for a deluxe room but they upgraded it into a Honeymoon Suite room without extra charged since we told them it's our honeymoon vacation. Dianne the receptionist was very accomodating & friendly, their dinner was great as well as the free buffet breakfast. They tried to give us all our extra request.. Over all, we are satisfied with our stay. :)
My purpose was for diving”
Although only for one night, I really enjoyed my stay at Coopers. It was a nice hour long ride along the coast from Puerto Princesa, but they offer a van service if required. The food that I had was ample and delicious. I look forward to having another one of those pork steaks. The rooms are clean and spacious. Very nice to come back to after diving. The diving was better than I'd expected. We had about 30m visibility on one of the dives. Great for macro photography as there is plenty of small marine-life as well as the larger. The staff of course were fantastic, and with so many other dive sites to explore, I will definitely make my next stay a longer one.
Very lovely relaxing stay with very pleasant staff”
I stayed in Coopers report with two girlfriends of mine for 3 nights, was suppose to be 2 but stayed an extra night. From before I visited I was in good contact with Denise the hotel receptionist, she was amazing in helping me plan my first few days. Emailed back very promptly, Denise also was very helping and attentive during our stay there always smiling. all the staff actually were very pleasant, greated by the owners everyday. Made to feel very comfortable. The resort was not busy, which we enjoyed it was quite and relaxing which was just what we needed to start off our trip around Palawan. We felt as though we had are own private beach. Did not go in the sea, but did use the pool. Rooms very clean, spacious and well decorated. Food very nice. Internet signal not great but we were on our holidays so was a good excuse not to be stuck to our phones. Hotel arranged our trip to the underground river. Over all a very nice place, lovely for couples to relax for the week. It's out of the centre so not very handy to any we're to eat out or drink, but I am sure if you wanted to venture out the staff would help that happen
Relaxing, back to nature style.”
As we arrived at night it was difficult to see our surroundings so it wasn't until the morning that we realised the hotel backed onto a wonderful view of the sea (beach is ok when the tide is out) and that the resort is a little of the beaten track...in a good way! :) The staff were amazing and so attentive they were able to accommodate all our needs to make it such a wonderful week long break for my Filipina girlfriend and I. The resort is a dive resort and are totally geared up for diving trips however we didn't dive and found many other excursions such as Riverboat tour, caving, zip lining, island hopping, jungle trekking and waterfall swimming amazing! ...and all the excursions were very reasonably priced. The WIFI is good but only works in the restaurant and not in the rooms (but my Globe 3G worked perfect everywhere). The food was (masarap!) wonderfully delicious but get there on time as you could be left dissappointed. Some of the rooms have TV's (Satalite) and some don't, we asked to be moved to room with a TV and again the staff acted immediately and we moved the same day. The rooms have a lovely Filipino log cabin feel to them with an enormous bed and plenty of floor space. The plug sockets are normal 2 pin filipino sockets. Ensure you take plenty of supplies (or buy them before heading to the resort) as the resort is approximately 1hour 20mins drive from PP city. Also ensure you take plenty of cash as paying your bill at the end of your stay can prove difficult as the card machine rarely works. If you are a diver or just want a relaxing quite (out of the city) retreat but ideally located to most excursions then this resort is the place for you, bring cash, toiletries and sun tan cream and I'm sure you will leave the resort feeling refreshed and rejuvinated. Thanks to all the team for making our trip such a wonderful one.
Great place, but business model needs work”
This was a great stay at a wonderful location with friendly owners. The only real issue is that with very limited options in the area (none really) there needs to be a great deal more communication as to what is available to do, and what the costs will be. One particular example was the island hopping trip which has a fixed price. What we weren't told, was that the awful sandwich, water and snorkeling equipment we were offered, ALL were additional costs. Nor were we really told what to expect on the the islands (which had a number of great options for activities, lunch, etc). The facilities are also great, but seem little used, such as a fantastic beach bar that is well kept but not often staffed or promoted. Otherwise, the meals were fantastic, and the dinner buffet was always something to look forward to. We even enjoyed a special Christmas dinner (with a surprise price) but it was a great experience nonetheless! The rooms are clean and well kept, and the staff are wonderfully accommodating and friendly. All in all, if you know what to expect, this is a great place...just make sure to ask for more information!
great safe and affordable diving”
Very impressed the staff yet comfortable instruction and safety where diving is concerned. The dive boat is fantastic and jumping into the water and getting back on the boat was a breeze. The ride to Isla Pandan is also fantastic as the snorkeling is safe and child safe. We also enjoyed the staff cooking andwarm hospitality.
