                  Quite remote, but a lovely, quiet place”

                  Beautiful resort right on the beachfront, plenty of room to relax, rooms are nice, all staff are friendly and helpful.

                  We booked Cooper's knowing that it was a bit outside of Puerto Princesa, not realising just how far away from anything it is! So if you're looking for a busy resort with a choice of restaurants and bars, this isn't for you. We stayed for 4 nights, free transfer from the airport which is about one hours drive away. The staff and owners were all very pleasant and accommodating. Breakfast and dinner are buffet meals offerring a mixture of Filipino food and also some western dishes-there was always something nice to eat. The lunch menu also has filipino food plus sandwiches, burgers, pasta etc. All in all the food was great. They have a diving school which seems to be the main reason for people to stay here. We did an island hopping tour with snorkelling. Had a great day but unfortunately didn't receive any instruction on how to 'snorkel' as the instructor had left earlier to take another guest diving. A little disappointing as I had never done it before. The islands were beautiful and well worth a visit. They also offer other tours such as the underground river tour which the girls on reception tried to book us into but they were all full as we left it to last minute. I would book this early if you wish to go. So the rest of our time was spent relaxing in the pool, reading our books in the hammocks or at the beach where the water is so warm. In summary: negatives were that it's a little remote (many will find this is a positive) only one small shop within walking distance, no wifi and no mosquito nets in the rooms (Moderate risk of Malaria in this part of Palawan) and no fixings for us to hang our own net. Positives are that it's a beautiful place right on the beach front, plenty of room to relax and staff and owners couldn't be nicer. Perhaps recommend for couples looking for somewhere to relax but not really for familes or young adults looking for a nightlife.

                  Very nice and helpful staff, good food, good location

                  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.

                  The staff at this place are excellent! The view is beautiful and the Dinners are Outstanding

                  Coopers Beach Resort hosted our wedding and I can't say enough about the experience I had with this event. The staff was wonderful about everything when it came to this wedding and it was really a decent stay over all. There were some small quirks about staying there that I overcame. First of all, their beach was ruined by storms so there is no white sand beach as in the pictures. In fact, their beach has this grass covered in flies. The water was infested with jellyfish too. The resort is very far from Puerto Princesa so if you need a ride from the van it's an hour drive. Make sure the desk people communicate about charges with you before you agree to them. While their breakfast and dinner are the best, the lunches are not that great and are expensive. I still love this place!

                  the hotel is very nice and staff are really friendly. all the guests staying there are actually feel like a big family. although it is located at a very remote place which needs an hour from the city puerto princesa. however it is a really nice location if you would like to experience the natural palawan, for island hopping, scuba diving or even just a getaway trip from the city. we really enjoy our stay and especially for the little touch of message they give us after we have mentioned that we are actually on our honeymoon, which really surprise us. the room package include breakfast and dinner, although for a small hotel, they actually provide quite nice local style of food which we enjoy a lot as well. overall it was a great experience and we really looking forward to go again

                  Best for a nice and quiet stay, great staff and awsome food!

                  This resort is one of the best places we have stayed so far and exceeded all our expectations. Its quite far from the airport (about 1.5 hrs drive)….but the distance is worth it…..when we reached the destination after a long tiring day….we simply awwwed at what we found….the resort is spectacular……its like heaven deep inside the forest……beautifully crafted with wooden furniture….spacious cool rooms…..and everything spotless clean. I have to mention about their outdoor dining area…..it was a delight…relaxing…and the food I must say was awsomeeee……be prepared there are no restaurants beside the resort so your only option is the resort food ….and I can tell you… you are in good hands……the food is so tasty and every night the dinner is something different and special….to be honest we used to wait to see what’s for dinner every night as each dish was yummy beyond words! We enjoyed the underground river tour and island hopping tour …all managed by the resort…and was a fantastic experience! Most importantly, the owners of the resort..Frank, Lydia..and their kids (sorry forgot your names) went out of their way to make this escape a memorable one for us…….warm…affectionate and caring…..if people are good…..your stay becomes more special…and I would say ..if you are visiting Palawan…this is the place to be! Only one suggestion: for privacy I believe the curtains should be changed. Yes I agree you will get some mosquito bites while dining…but cumon…if you want an adventurous stay....deep inside the forest…it is expected and natural…..so we really enjoyed our stay and will recommend all our friends to visit Coopers beach resort…..when my son , Arian grows up a bit more..I will come back here. Good job done guys! A blissfully relaxing experience! Cheers: Debbie, Ray and lil Arian!

                  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.

                  Diving Centre

                  this resort would be a great choice for divers, due to its close proximity to the beach. the resort is highly recommended for people would do not intend to travel out (ie, plan to chill in the resort for the entire stay at puerto princesa) as it takes an hour drive out to the city central. the drive out is subjected to additional surcharge. we were rather unfortunate that our stay at the resort was after a typhoon, hence, the beach was littered with seaweed. however, to be fair to the resort, photos of the beach appeared to be really pretty should it not be littered by seaweed. as the resort seems to be the only one in the area, you are blessed with serenity here. a book and a beer in hand at the benches/hammock would be a great place to spend your time.

                  Excursions, staff, food

                  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.

                  Size, design & comfort of the rooms, attentive staff & telepathic shuttle service & the only dive centre in the area.

                  Firstly I was unexpectedly welcomed at the airport by the shuttle service which you definitely require as it's a little further than expected from the airport (around 1hour) but that's another reason why it's location in the middle of Honda bay is so fantastic. Idilic & secluded, the gardens are wonderful. And you are right on the beach! Everything is to such a high standard, from the attentiveness of all the staff who go out of their way to make your stay effortless to the design of the rooms, everything is carefully thought through and within a reasonable price range. The resort also offers excursions & dive trips which is also perfect. The resort owners were also kind enough to drive me to the airport. Overall my stay was perfect apart from one thing... I wish I could have stayed longer. I'll definitely be back and highly recommend coopers to anyone visiting Palawan.

                  Cooper's Beach Resort is quiet, things are arranged for you so you don't have to worry, and the German familly in charge is very friendly

                  Things we liked: -Our stay was wonderfully quiet and casual! Cooper's is a nice distance from the airport/city and is closed off from the surrounding properties, though you can still hear nearby chickens crowing. -The pool, rooms, and grounds are cleaned daily. -The staff was willing to help, and the owners are friendly Germans (meaning there are a lot of Germans who go there, which was great). -The pool -The hammocks -The darts -Diving -The community feel -The open-air restaurant -The mango juice -The mopeds/scooters -Our air conditioner Some disappointments: -We had to pay for water, and it was pricier than elsewhere. -We paid more for a nicer room with air conditioning, but the rooms all looked the same. -The return trip to the airport wasn't covered despite Cooper's location. -Guests were allowed to smoke in the dining area despite a "no smoking" sign. -Breakfast was always cold, not very good, and the pancakes were old and hard. -Lunch was always the same. -Drinks were not included in the meal prices. -Dinner was mostly just filling and not worth its price besides the convenience. -The bed had a pad, not a mattress, with a loose sheet and limp pillows. The headboard had a small ledge that made sitting against it and reading or watching a movie in bed an impossibility. Unfortunately, the wicker chairs in the room are also uncomfortable. -The wifi didn't work well. Tips: -Go to the main road to buy food and water--it's cheaper and more authentic. -Watch for bugs in your food. (Don't keep food in your room because the bugs are crazy in the Philippines.) -Know that sunscreen isn't enough; you need clothing, especially if you're going to rent one of the mopeds/scooters. -Try diving! Kevin is a great dive master. However, we discovered online that the licensing price at Cooper's is comparatively really high, so negotiate. -Email the resort ahead of time if you'd like to go to the Underground River, zipline, or on a firefly trip.

                  I stayed at Cooper's for two nights with my friend. Our room was big, clean and nicely decorated. The hotel offers island hopping to a few nearby islands, we got stranded on one for a few hours because the waves were too high, but everyone had a good time. The water at the beach was a little cloudy, and the waves were pretty big in the late afternoon so we didn't get to swim. But the area around the beach is very nice, with lots of shade and comfortable places to sit, also there's a bar with some snacks nearby the beach. The hotel restaurant had really good food, and the staff and owners were all very nice and helpful!

                  The resort is about an hour drive from the airport but you dont need to worry about that because they provide free airport transfers. Arriving at the resort you'll notice the beautiful garden and environment if the place. Rooms are big with wood ornaments which adds To that "beach" feel. Bathrooms are big also. No tub but who would need that anyways when there's a nice pool and jacuzzi at the center Of the resort. The couple who owns the resort are one of the nicest people that we've met in Palawan. They're really warm and will always talk and smile at you. They also take care of you When you go on tours. They make sure your safe and that you get what you pay for. Lastly you dont have to worry about getting food outside the resort because their food is awesomely good!

                  Very lovely relaxing stay with very pleasant staff”

                  Relaxing, private, polite 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

                  Big rooms, clean, quiet, very relaxing

                  If you want to relax, this is the place in Palawan. Electricity and water supply all the time. The beach is not one of the best but is empty and relaxing. Food is very good, specially the dinner buffet. The rooms are big, very clean with air con but not beach front view. The resort is far from town but you can arrange all the tours you want with the resort. We had the honor to be attended by the German owners that were great, very friendly and helpful. Also the staff was very nice even do they were like in training, because the resort is new they were fine.

                  My purpose was for diving”

                  Food Diving Staff

                  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.
