The company chose to stay here for our outing and it's really outdated. Good thing that is near the beach area. The staff are very friendly, the selection of food is not so many and the ambience is just okay. The rooms is spacious enough to accomodate 4-5 guests with a thin-stuffed bed which is not so comfy to sleep... More

Pool, reasonable beach, friendly stuff, good rooms. all you'd expect in a resort of this price range. But... even though the italian pizza was pretty good (8/10 - lacking some central crunch on the base) the spicy seafood noodles were a joke. Pot noodles with few prawns and other stuff... Very disappointing.

It was more or less a last minute plan to have a break from work, so I decided that visiting Bohol to see the Chocolate Hills and the Tarsier Sanctuary and get in a bit of easy diving would be nice. Polaris Beach and Dive Resort suited my requirements perfectly. Getting there from Singapore was easy - a short 3... More

We spent a week in November at Polaris. I dove everyday with Jun Jun as my dive guide. He was excellent at finding all the amazing little critters that live in Cabiloa reefs. Dives were long, relaxed and full of amazing reef creatures. Not too many fish though. I also snorkeled right off the beach at Polaris...really great snorkeling. The... More

This resort is a brilliant place for a quiet getaway with friends or family. Cabins are clean and comfortable. There is nice pool with a shallow section for kids (and a lot of play equipment). The gardens are pleasant with a boat-shaped bar on the edge of the beach where the most spectacular sunsets can be absorbed while sipping on... More

Our group of 11 snorkelers spent 4 nights at the Polaris Beach and Dive Resort, using the resort's several banca boats to visit the very close off-shore reefs. Usually no more than a 15 minute ride from the resort itself. Our rooms were very nice, food was excellent, staff very attentive, and in the evenings you can sit out by... More

Polaris Resort is an ideal place to enjoy a relaxing holiday, and offers access to a number of snorkeling and scuba diving sites around the island. It is one of 3 resorts (as far as i can ascertain) operating on Cabilao Island, a small island on the west coast of Bohol. (There appears to be another resort nearby which appears... More

Cabilao island is a fantastic remote getaway, surrounded by pristine seas. My girlfriend and I spent 3 days here and all of them were incredibly relaxing, lounging by the incredible pool, walking along the coast or exploring the tiny island with its very friendly villagers. The owners are exceptionally friendly and pay every attention to detail to ensure their guests... More

The resort is nicely built, well maintained and very reasonably priced considering the location and the amenities : swimming pool, free billiard table, darts, small library ( 90% german) and wifi in restaurant and other public areas. The restaurant caters for many tastes, italian, german, french, filipino and "international". I've tried all but the filipino dishes, I strongly recommend the... More

Excellent resort in Cabilao. 1/2 of the reefs were damaged by the earthquake, but the wall near the resort was in great shape. Dive guides were excellent. Reckon this is the best choice of resort on the island. Easiest to travel to resort directly from Cebu through the hotel.
