Really nice and cosy place surrounded by birds, as the owner is very interested in birdlife of all kinds. We were only gonna stay there for one night, but ended up staying there for five weeks. Nice clean rooms and very friendly staff, they helped us out with whatever we needed help with. St Bernard is located right in the... More

We would recommend staying at St Bernard as we had a great time there back in June 2012. The rooms are unique and all situated within a few meters from the beach. The staff are GREAT and so nice. We had a few cockroaches in our room (quite normal in a place like the Philippines) and the staff were great... More

We stayed here for one night only in January after two marvelous days spent in Malapascua. Compared to Malapascua's friendly small island community, Bantayan felt completely different, more catering to tourists (although little developed) and less genuinely friendly, which means many more people will approach you all the time trying to sell a service, and rip you off more frequently....

I decided to write this review because this place is really a hidden gem.. I totally disagree with the bird sick review.. stay somewhere else if you dont like birds, it is a free world, dont pollute the world with your negative attitude towards animals. The statements about you would get sick really tells me that the person dont know... More

Stayed here sometime in 2010. Bantayan is a lovely unexploited spot in the Visayas. I'm very happy on my stay with Eden and Fleming of St. Bernard. They were warm and friendly. That's correct you are surrounded by an aviary and I don't mind. It wasn't like what the poster below me described. This place was clean as they have... More

Those who go to this resort should be aware that this is a resort and AVIARY. Literally there are hundreds of birds on a very small property. The windows of the units open out directly onto bird cages which are larger than the rooms themselves. The room, which is only CLEANED EVERY 3 DAYS, had small mites crawling on the... More
