A catastophe of epic proportions. We didnt get picked up from the port as promised, we got a dirty smelly room with worse than third world furniture & fittings. No hot water. No aircon. No beach - more like a sewer covered in litter and rubbish. The nearby villagers/neigbours burn rubbish all the time and the smell is awful. I... More

I have been in many resorts in bantayan and so far, this place is what I have always wanted, I guess that was way back 2010. We had our team building here and it was really a great experience to every one of us. Staffs were great

This place (like much of Bantayan island) unfortunately never got over the typhoon damage, it seems. The positive reviews below are definitely fake. We booked for 3 nights, were forced to stay for 1, and hope that our photos will be sufficient to get a refund: dirty, broken bungalows, no water, broken pick-up van, desolated pool and kitchen etc. The...

We should have stayed here for a week but we only stayed one night. The Beach was really dirty and we didn't want to swim at all. Our bungalow was kind of ok but there were a lot of ants and a Big hole in the moskitonet at the window. There was a new bungalow there as Well and it... More

Here we found what were always looking for: Our private beach bungalow! Directly on a tropical beach near to a small village. A peaceful place surrounded by coconut trees on a private compound. Its not like a hotel, its like your own place in paradise. You are living here like a local with caretaker and a small but very friendly... More

Near a little village there is an absolute natural bay called Marikaban Beach. In the middle of a palm plantage on the beach are the White Beach Bungalows. We booked already in December, but the resort was closed due to the damamges of the tayphoon. The owner (who was meanwhile in Germany for medical check up, offered us to refund... More

This hotel/resort was damaged after Typhoon Yolanda and is not in business. No rooms, no water, no electricity. The German owner has left the country. Do not book this hotel or you will be looking for accommodations elsewhere on Bantayan. I will say Expedia provided me with a refund and were very helpful.
