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

Traveled with five other friends. Four of us stayed in an airconditioned cottage. Inside are twin beds, which can sleep two each if you have no problems with that, and one mattress on the floor. The ensuite was quite clean, though not spotless. The cottage has a veranda which has a living set. Your view? The best shoreline in all... More

We were looking forward to a weekend at Bantayan. The kids counted the days like they were counting stars. Everything was planned, from the swim wear to the food joints to the mojitos and margaritas. We prepared so much for this long overdue vacation. But little did we know that only Kota Beach would rob us of the joy and... More

We chose Kota Beach because the owner is a friend of my cousin yet our stay is unimaginable. We got an unfriendly & non service oriented customer service. The receptionist is rude. They even wont extend extra mileage by even allowing us to store our marketed products. They charged BIG time. The rooms we got was like a ward room... More

I stayed at Kota Beach almost a year ago with 3 of my friends when we were in Bantayan Island. What we loved about this resort is the beachfront. There are other resorts around the area, and we also tried to explore them (their surroundings at least) during our stay. Most of them, if not all, probably offer even better... More

Nice beachfront resort. Beach beds are provided. Shore is actually clean and quiet. Sand is not as fine as I expected but good enough. Bar: Just by the beach, nice and clean with billiards table provided and free wifi. Relaxing and good too. Restaurant. Average. Food is okay, but a few to choose from. There are many restaurants outside just... More
