We rented 3 standard aircon rooms at 1200 pesos/night. I think that was pretty cheap although the rooms were cheap too. The knobs are rusty. Our comfort room was quite dirty. They have much better rooms at 3400 and 3800 a night though so if you have the extra cash, you can get those instead. Good thing, the beach was... More

Being on a budget, I booked a simple fan room for my family (4 adults and 2 small kids) in this resort last year. For P900/night which included transfers from the Sta. Fe port to the resort for the six of us (imagine, a mere P150/person), I think this was a pretty reasonable deal if you’re budget-conscious, AND if you’re... More

Considered as the best beach resort in Sta. Fe Bantayan Island Cebu during summer. It was during summer where a sand bar right in front of the resort is present. Acc. to the staff, this sand bar disappear during the 2nd half of the year and re-appear again during summer. Staff is very friendly and attends to your needs. They... More

My girlfriend and I went to Bantayan Island 3 weeks ago for our 3d/2n staycation. Kota Beach Resort wasn't our first choice but all other resorts were already fully booked so I looked it up and found this site, http://www.ilink.ph/kota-beach, where I booked our stay. To my surprise, the transaction went fast. To think that I booked it 2 days... More

They have the best shoreline in the island and a sandbar too. The room was dusty and not well maintained however the food is really good. I will go back and still stay in this place but I'll make sure I'll call few months ahead so I'll get the best room and not the cheapest one. I love Bantayan that... More

Having grown-up in the city, Bantayan is my idea of a perfect getaway. It's close enough to reach within a day but far enough to disconnect from urban life. Kota Beach Resort is not one of many amenities or special frills; but then one doesn't go to Bantayan to stay in a hotel (I think). My suggestion is to hang... More

This is my second visit to Bantayan Island. I looked at several accommodations in Santa Fe on the internet but decided to stay at Kota Beach Resort. The room given to me was just right for the price, it is just a few steps away from the beach, the resort's Ding Dong Cafe, the "trisikads" right outside the gate if... More

It was a hassle going to Bantayan with all the air, land and sea travel (i came from Manila), but once I saw the place, everything was worth it! It was peaceful with very few guests. It was like I am on my own private island. :)

We spent our month long vacation in Cebu hunting for all the white sand beaches we can set foot on. this location was highly anticipated. We stayed at Kota Beach because my sister in law had connections and managed to get us a reservation for a cheaper price. they picked us up from the port and took us back when... More
