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... More

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... More

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!

Well this resort left us with mixed emotions... we loved it! The food the staff the room the location everything was great. Other than the lack of pride in the resort - I assume it is not because Angel and her partner are not interested but the owner perhaps??? Angel and Her Partner are absolutely fantastic hosts although it looks... More

My sons and I spent a few days at Blue Cove in July and loved every minute of our time there. We were very sad to leave and would happily have stayed for much longer.

After 2 nights, I regrettably left this place this morning (moving on to El Nido) but could've happily stayed there another week.
