After riding the boat from the Poblacion of San Vicente, Palawan we arrived in Port Barton and was looking for a place to stay for 2 nights. We had a budget of less than 400 Pesos per night but the lodgings there only offered us exactly 400 Pesos per night lodgings. But if we do not find a lodging with our budget then we’ll just have to camp out somewhere. Luckily, there’s a lodging that offered us 300 Pesos per night and that’s how we ended in El Dorado.
Anyways, below are the details of most accommodations in Port Barton.
I’m recommending this accommodation because of the sole purpose that they have a nice spot away from the center of town. Usually the beach in front of town is full of boats, so it’s a bit of a hassle to sit on the beach there.
El Dorado Sunset Garden Resort
I’m recommending El Dorado because I stayed there on their Backpacker’s Room which was only 300 Pesos/night because I went there during the low peak season. They also have a friendly staff and they have one of the best chicken curry I have ever tasted.

There are still other lodgings in Port Barton such as Itaytay Inn, Princesa Michaella’s Beach Resort, Cabungan Beach Resort and others but either I did not find them or the staff was busy doing something else.
