We had eaten lunch at the previous resort so we asked how much would they charge us to just let our daughter swim. They were very nice and accommodating, after first making sure we would watch her and that she could swim, since there was no lifeguard and they didn't charge us anything.
We didn't spend the night since we live an hour or so away but I thought I'd post for those who want an off the beaten track adventure. It is quite out of the way, so Coopers Beach resort is more for those seeking a peaceful place. It's about an hour out of Puerto Princesa city and off a dirt road..so it's not easy to get around if you want to go elsewhere.
I must say though, they certainly had a very good set of diving get and supplies for rent. The room I saw was clean. Apparently though, if you like hot showers, there are issues which you can read in Trip Advisor. But it shouldn't really stop you if you like a quiet place.
I have read mixed reviews on Trip Advisor from the guests who have stayed here and they run to most excellent to horrible. It all really depends on what you want or expect on a holiday.
If you want to stay there, I suggest reading the mix reviews and then contacting the owner or manager to get things right for you. The gardens are pretty and they have a bar set in a coconut grove on sand. There is no beach to speak of but there are beaches close by.
They were very nice to us though.
