Last April 2014, my partner & I went to this resort for a day use. It was a bit far from Sta. Fe proper & we had difficulties finding it due to poor road directions. When we got there, there were not much people so we had a quiet morning all by ourselves. We swam at the pool with 1... More

I've booked this bungalow in advance for 7 nights 100$ each. I've left this place the next day and I didn't care about no refund from Agoda. When I came back and looked at hotel pictures I could hardly believe my eyesl. AS OF DECEMBER 30th 2014 this place looks like it's 10 years older with no renovation done at... More

We went here for a one-day trip. We left 30 minutes after we arrived. The pool was really dirty and even the kids didn't want to swim i it. Only one sunbed and a member of the staff was using it. The restaurant wasn't cosy at all. The trip from Santa Fe was really bumpy and quite long but our... More

Tour guides will add this to your itinerary. The catch expensive and not worth it. Food though cooked ok - small serving and way too over priced. Nowhere else to eat because the location is way far from the beach. The pool is not well maintained, visible lifeguard but not enough facilities for the guest. Restrooms way too outdated. Not...

My boyfriend and I spent a day here, so although we did not sleep here, we saw the rooms and were not too impressed. First off, the nature park and resort is very far from the town, so once you're here, you're stuck here. If you want to explore the main city or go to restaurants outside of the resort,... More

We met the lady owner here soon after arrival. The resort is very clean and people here are helpful and very friendly. We rented the bungalow as it certainly seemed value for money. The resort has a restaurant and a good overall atmosphere. There are many places to sit and relax with a book, with the mini-zoo and also the... More

Went here for a day tour. It was quite far from Kota Beach where we stayed but it was worth the trip. We paid only PhP 200 each for everything but the food. And, for that amount, here's what we got: Access to the swimming pool Access to Sto. Niño Cave Free fish spa Free 1 hr massage Free use... More

Although our trip to Bantayan was officially for business reasons, I should say that our stay at Bantayan Island Nature Park and Resort seemed like a vacation. What sets this resort apart from all the other resorts in the area is the excellent customer service. My colleagues and I were lucky to have met and known the owner, Sir Allen,... More

Nice place to stay in Bantayan. What makes this place unique is that you can take a swim in the sea, plus there's an infinity pool, and another added attraction which is the cave pool, right within the premises. They have courteous staff, too. Although location is not very close to the wharf (unlike the other resorts), but they have... More
