Blue Cove Island resort is a 45 minute boat ride from Port Barton. It is a rustic, charming, friendly little oasis. Please note- this is where you go to get away, and I mean away, from it all. There is limited electricity, the accommodations are similar to camping but you have a villa instead of a tent, the wifi does...

First we wanted to stay for only 3 nights, finally we stayed there for 5 nights. Small accommodation on cute island with familiar atmosphere because there are only 5 cottages. Staff is very friendly. Rooms and food are simple, but the beach and nature are very very beautiful and quiet. The view from all the cottages is fantastic. We really...

For me, Blue Cove Resort was one of the biggest disappointments when it came to accommodation. Sure, it's situated on a secluded white beach with beautiful palm trees, it has this cute wooden cottages and even baby turtles hatch here. But when you pay like €20 per night, you may expect things to be clean and working, at the very...

So many things to do and see all around (small path till the top with beautiful view deck, kayak till the pearl production and discussion with the local, snorkeling and above all private small beatch discovery). I recommend yourself to bring your fruits for breakfast (they...

Upon reading the Blue Cove reviews on Tripadvisor, you could be forgiven for being a little concerned about the remoteness, the lack of electricity (apart from a couple of hours in the morning and four hours in the evening), and the general 'basicness' of what's on offer. Well it is remote (about 3.5 hour drive from Puerto Princesa to Port...

We spent in Blue Cove resort 3nights. Our sum up : + nice peaceful location (great break from reality :-) ) + very good food (for reasonable price -dinner/lunch) + beautiful island hoping for 700php per person - water was very dirty, no chance to swimm there (a lot of sea grass and stones in the water) - staff was...

Blue Cove is great if you're looking for certain things: - Extreme privacy / isolation - Unplug from life/internet (I mean really unplug) - A real live on the beach experience (not many amenities) However, all of that comes with drawbacks-- and to be clear, Blue Cove is NOT in Port Barton. It's actually 1 hour away by boat from...

If it weren't for Angel, not sure how this resort would run. She is a darling and we thoroughly enjoyed spending time talking with her. Angel spent time with our daughter teaching her new crafts and was an absolute joy! All of this said, clearly they need to put a little more care (and money) into this place. If you...

Quite place with fantastic surroundings, well managed by super kind Angel and David. Accomodations are very basic and "quite" clean but with stunning view. Good food and possibility of island hopping as well as paddling to nearby beaches. Enjoy your holidays ;) Recommended!
