Sheridan Beach Resort and Spa is a 4-star luxury resort nestled between the West Philippine Sea and Palawan mountain range. Located inside one of the most protected areas in the country, this top rated accommodation is perfect for nature lovers and families. As the first green resort in the Philippines, Sheridan is one of a few resorts in Palawan that can combine personal VIP service and environmental sustainability. The clear focus on the environment while delivering quality service to the guests is what makes this resort special.
Sabang is the jump-off point for tourists going to the famous Puerto Princesa Underground River. It stands in contrast to the busy city center, so we recommend Sabang for people who want peace and quiet, as well as the comfort of being close to the popular tourist spots. There are only a few properties in Sabang and Sheridan Beach Resort is one of the best, along with the Daluyon Beach resort. Both properties have 4-star quality rating and both are strategically located in Sabang with their own private beachfront.
The resort staff are all well-trained and they all exhibit that natural Filipino hospitality. Service may be a bit slow in some areas and may require a follow-up sometimes, but the willingness and readiness of the staff to deliver personal service is always there.
The resort is immaculately clean. Daily housekeeping is observed and toiletries are replenished. The resort grounds, pool area and the beach area are all meticulously maintained regularly.
The well-appointed rooms are spacious, comfortable, and complete with deluxe amenities. The room designs are modern contrary to Daluyon’s more native and natural island vibe. Each room has its own spacious balcony where guests can enjoy different astounding views of the mountains and the sea
The resort’s private beach is adorned with soft and fine golden sands and many of our guests find it more beautiful than the more common white sands found in EL Nido. The swimming pool is the largest and the best rated in all of the properties found in Puerto Princesa.
The resort is 1.5-2 hours away from the airport in Puerto Princesa but there is an airport shuttle offered. This might be disappointing for some people but the location is very good if your priority is to visit the famous natural wonder – Puerto Princesa Underground River.
Sheridan Beach Resort and Spa is reasonably priced. It is more or less comparable with Daluyon Beach Resort but Sheridan’s amenities surpass the other properties in terms of comfort and quality.
The resort’s organic farm is also noteworthy because it supplies 80% of the food requirements of the resort and this significantly ensures that you can enjoy the freshest and highest quality produce. Here, you and other visitors can also experience the farm firsthand by going on a tour where you can sample organic products and taste the freshly harvested fruits and vegetables of the day.
The swimming pool along with its wet and dry pool bar is probably the main highlight of the resort, as it is bigger and better designed than all of the properties in Sabang. Compared to Daluyon’s swimming pool, here in Sheridan, you can just plunge at the pool which by the way is also perfect for children as it is not too deep. You don’t have to leave the pool area to get a drink. All you need to do is swim to the bar and order your favorite cocktail. When you get tired of swimming, pamper yourself with their signature spa.
There are 2 other restaurants in the compound and one other bar. The South sea restaurant is where most of the dining takes place. Breakfast is also served here. For a quick snack, the lobby lounge is probably the best place for coffee and pastries. If you don’t like to get wet and just enjoy a nice wine or beer, then we recommend the resort’s blue bar.
Tripadvisor awarded Sheridan with a Certificate of Excellence both in 2015 and 2016. Public reviews are mostly positive and our wonderful experience strengthens this conviction. In terms of score ratings, Sheridan scores a bit lower than Daluyon Beach Resort. Guests love the more exclusive ambiance that Daluyon provides than the bigger Sheridan. With fewer rooms than Sheridan, Daluyon have fewer guests and so they are able to provide a better service on a much more personal level. On the other hand, guests find Sheridan’s amenities more stylish and contemporary than Daluyon’s.
Agoda has the most number of reviews across all travel platforms. Currently 1116 reviewers gave Sheridan a total average score of 8.3 which is excellent. Cleanliness and service were given the highest score, while food and dining scored the lowest. This is because most guests find the menu and the breakfast buffet a little bit on the limited side and a la carte menus are expensive so guests prefer to go outside and dine in other restaurants in the area for a cheaper price and more variety.
Booking.com customers on the other hand, rated Sheridan 8.5. 293 reviewers were very happy with the staff giving them an almost perfect score while breakfast scored the lowest, again this is because the breakfast buffet lacks vegan options and western choices are also underwhelming.
What do guests love about Sheridan Beach Resort and Spa?
Negative aspects of the Sheridan Beach Resort are:
Sheridan is perfect for families and groups. Their facilities are better and more updated than those at Daluyon, and are very child-friendly. If you have small kids, we recommend that you stay at the Sheridan because they offer babysitting services and their swimming pool is perfect for the kids. The surface area is also bigger with more places for kids to run around and play.
On the contrary, Daluyon is best for couples who are looking for a more intimate and refined accommodation. Daluyon guarantees privacy and with fewer guests, they can deliver service quality on a more personal level. Overall, Sheridan Beach Resort and Spa embodies luxury in its amenities while Daluyon offers exclusivity, luxury and much more relaxing ambiance.
