    Beautiful place!It’s such a beautiful destination with staff that are friendly and ready to help. (Shout out to the bar staff!) It’s just a shame that a certain type of traveller was arriving by the bus load...loud, disrespectful to travellers, staff and sea life and poorly behaved in general. The grounds were perfectly maintained and the restaurant served up wonderful food. We’ll be back!

    ExcellentThe staff superb, awesome service. Buffet Breakfast choices excellent. Food choices for lunch and dinner limited and pricey, taste too ‘fusiony’ for lack of a better term. It wasn’t bad but I wanted authentic ‘Kare-Kare”. One stone crab was Php 1500.00. One pompano Php 895 prepared to order. Massage not too good. The worst part of the entire resort were the other Asian non-Filipino guests. For an American couple used to Southeast Asian/Filipino warmth these Koreans???Japanese??! Chinese??? with stony stares and no response when nodded/smiled/greeted e.g. ‘good morning’ or ‘hello,’ made our whole stay really weird. Couldn’t tell because no one wanted to talk to us. We usually interact with other travelers and being with people like these make me want to stay elsewhere next time. There were only two other Caucasian couples in the entire place.

We love the eco-friendly set up, water is not in a plastic bottle and refillable! Food is great! We’ll definitely come back! Suggestion: If you will have a beach wedding, please make sure to provide a big fan, in the area.

    Great for a chill, relaxing weekend. Great service! Highly recommended!”

    Very good service from the warm & thoughtful staff, with small touches of hospitality here & there. At dinner, our server immediately noticed that my friend had a hoarse voice & offered that warm ginger tea was available. Food is good, & the acoustic solo that accompanied dinner was top-notch. Even though they were fully booked, the place didn’t feel packed, except maybe unless everyone was at dinner. Daybeds & hammocks dot in between the numerous palm trees around the rooms, perfect for relaxing! Lots of lounging options at the beachfront as well, for those looking to perfect their tan. Beds are comfortable, & there are even options for different kinds of pillows available. Highly recommended!!!

    Thank you, South Palms!”

    Everyone was truly nice, esp. the restaurant staff. Thank you for treating our toddler well. :) Food was a bit on the expensive side, but was delish. Breakfast buffet had lots of food options to choose from. Our room (deluxe beach front) was made up 2x a day by housekeeping. Once in the morning, and then late afternoon including a turn down treat (love the peanut kisses!). The resort itself was clean and super relaxing. If we had the budget, we'd've stayed more than 4 days. Hehe!

    All is very well (better be for the high prices they charge). I have only these complaints: - the bed is way to o soft - breakfast buffet plundered half an hour before closing and not filled up anymore - restaurant food is expensive and does not taste great: you are better off in the neighbouring resort - they charge 500 PHP for a 10 minute ride in their van ...

    nothing can beat the views, the location, the ambiance - it is heaven!! food quality and variety can be improved, available accessibility for guests in and out of the resort should be thoroughly thought of and highly considered but management. i think an investment of golf carts to ferry in and out of guests from hotel lobby to main road can elevate this resort services and facilities to next level - with the customer needs in mind..

    Best vacation resort. ”

    Before we came to South Palms we were staying at the Hennan, I have to say, if you are looking for a more quiet and relax place to go, South Palms is your CHOICE!!! The free snorkeling tour is fantastic, although watch out the sea urchins, even though I have worn the shoes, still step on the sea urchins, but the staff is professional and helped to clean the wound!!! And the food here is amazing too, the price they charge is like heavenly cheap compared to Taiwan hotels. I will be back!!! 總之就是推推推!!建議可以Henann跟這間都住唷!!各住一半不同的大享受~

    Amazing beach - good room - amazing staff”

    About the hotel itself first : the room is clean (although there was just a shower, no bath) , the facilities are great and the beach is abolutely amazing. A lot of spaces to rest (sofas, hamac, etc), instangram worthy ;) The pool is a bit small, not super inviting (but again, why going into the pool when the sea is that nice) But the best part here was the staff : really super nice people, always trying to make you feel happy and confortable. One example : Our daughter was sick in the evening and the nurse (they have a 24h nurse) woke up, took care of her, joined us at the hospital : and the transportation Hotel -> hospital -> hotel was totally free of charge, at 2am in the morning. it is extremely rare and we loved it.
