Additional properties have been purchased close to the Port Barton resort either by walking to a couple of waterfalls or by taking a 35 minutes boat ride to a beach property with turtles laying eggs , sea otters and dolphins close by. This will enable Greenviews to offer better eco tours in the future. We are also hoping to link these eco tours with our other properties near El Nido but this will take time so no definite date can yet be given.
Port Barton is an ideal holiday destination for guests seeking a genuine friendly, clean and relaxing environment located in a area of outstanding natural beauty. A beauty enhanced by the sympathetic construction of native style cottages and restaurants blending into the surrounding wilderness.
The already wonderful atmosphere has been further reinforced by extensive planting of trees, shrubs and orchids which makes walks through the gardens a joy for plant lovers, wildlife enthusiasts and anybody who appreciates the natural world.
Port Barton is conveniently located for boat trips to the surrounding islands and beaches, which Palawan is justifiably world famous for and the resort offers a different kind of island experience.
The islands around Port Barton are the more typical desert island ideal with superb white beaches and snorkelling opportunities.

Greenviews Port Barton has high standards of cleanliness maintained by the friendly and helpful staff and management, which helps guests enjoy the fascinating natural and unique beauty of Palawan – an island which Jacque Cousteau described as the most beautiful place he had ever visited.
The owners Tina & Dave Gooding have a love of nature and the environment and that is evidenced by the way the resort is run with much planting to encourage wildlife into the resorts.
A wonderful introduction to this magnificent scenery can be enjoyed just by sitting, eating or drinking in Greenviews restaurant which is situated on the second storey overlooking the beach. This view is the 'icing on the cake' on top of the delightful food served in the restaurant by staff specially trained by Tina, who has benefitted from over 20 years working in the UK for millionaires and a billionaire, all requiring exceptional standards of work.
This combination of stunning location, wonderful wooden furniture and excellent food would be hard to match anywhere in the world. The restaurant is also open to non-guests, early or late arrival may be required as the restaurant is often full at peak times but there are pleasant places to wait if time is of little consequence
Booking Terms & Conditions.
A deposit of two nights accommodation fee will be required, payable within one week of confirmation of booking or the booking will be automatically cancelled.
If guests do not arrive on the first day covered by the deposit, the deposit will be lost for that first day. It will also be lost for the second day of non–arrival and the booking cancelled unless notified by telephone or email by 12 noon that you will be late.
If a deposit has been paid and we manage to re–let, then we will refund the deposit less 10% administration fee.
Cash in Palawan with particular reference to Port Barton
Please note there are no ATMs in Port Barton. The only working ATMs are in Puerto Princesa so if you need Philippine Pesos you are advised to take out cash in Manila or Puerto Princesa. Some places will cash dollars & Euros & pounds but outside Puerto Princesa the rate will be rather poor because resorts & restaurants etc have to cover their own exchange risks as they will not be reimbursed in Pesos until they make a trip to PPC to exchange them and that could be days or weeks. Travel cheques are of little or no use in Palawan.
A few resorts, restaurants etc including Greenviews will accept credit card but will charge 5 or 6% usually but this may in fact be cheaper than the exchange loss suffered on converting foreign currencies. However, be aware that frequent signal problems in networks provided by Globe and Smart can result in credit card machines not working for a few hours and occasionally days. This is beyond the control of Greenviews or any other establishment and can cause considerable stress.
Information and photos of both resorts and the new Jungle & Waterfall Wildlife Sanctuary are set out on subsequent pages.

At Port Barton the resort goes back 197m and the last 3rd is still semi-wild. Frequent guests to this back 'garden' are the endemic Palawan Hornbill and a small 'alarm bird' a name I use as its incredibly like a fire alarm at about 6am and it has certainly fooled me on at least one occasion! Another bird worth seeing is a Kingfisher feeding on fish in a small brook running through that patch of land, the same brook which many terrapins use and which come to be fed most evenings.
As well as the Kingfisher at the back we have one which perches on the electricity line at the front of the beach which catches fish in a small lagoon protruding into our beach near the front of restaurant and has also been seen to eat crabs from the beach.
