San Vicente in the island province of Palawan is an emerging tourist destination, which boasts almost 15 kilometers of white-sand beaches plus several coves on its south side. One of those hidden gems is Port Barton, a sleepy town that's now a crowd-drawing beach destination famous for its long, white sandbar. If you're looking for a place to stay in this tropical paradise, Holiday Suites Port Barton—which opened in March 2021—has 30 spacious rooms to accommodate beach-combing travelers.
Room options include Superior (P7,000), which features a king-sized bed and a 20-square-meter floor area; Deluxe (P7,500), which comes with a balcony overlooking the sea; and Family (P8,500), which is 15 square meters bigger than the Superior room. Rooms have air-conditioning, flat-screen TV, and a private toilet and bath with hot and cold water. All guests also get complimentary breakfast and free access to the swimming pool and non-motorized water activities.
Holiday Suites Port Barton also has a poolside restaurant and bar, smart-card access to rooms for contactless check-in, and room service until 9 p.m. If you're interested in making the most out of your vacation, hotel staff can also arrange for island-hopping activities. Available tours include a visit to Maxima Island, Starfish Sand Bar, Turtle Bay, White Beach, and Tugdunan Mangrove. You can also go swimming and snorkeling in the crystal-clear waters in front of the resort.
"Port Barton has always been close to our hearts. One of the earliest projects our construction company had was in Port Barton, so I remember going there during weekends with our family. We were looking into opening another property in El Nido when this opportunity came up," Ana Lustre-Malijan, co-proprietor of Holiday Suites Port Barton, said in a statement.
Holiday Suites Port Barton is along Rizal Street, Purok Pagkakaisa, Port Barton, San Vicente, Palawan. Rates start at P7,000. For more information, visit Holiday Suites Port Barton's website.
