The hotel is clean and tidy. We stayed on a beachfront room and it was a great spot to wake up :) The room should have a blackout to prevent sunlight early morning. The staff is really nice and the restaurant has really nice food, with great prices. They had an expresso machine on the reception that should be on... More

Dafür, dass diese Anlage erst 2004 gebaut wurde, ist es schon ganz schön heruntergekommen. Es befindet sich an einem traumhaft schönen Strandabschnitt und es ist sehr schade, dass man hier mehr Wert auf Kunststoff legt als natürliches Baumaterial. Auf diesem Areal könnte man mit etwas Phantasie und guten Willen ein wahres Paradies erschaffen. Die Zimmer (Deluxe) sind sehr gross aber... More

We arranged for pick up at the port. They were late and we had to call them to follow up, but the trip to the resort was more or less five minutes. Check in was pretty fast with complimentary iced teas provided. The staff are friendly, professional, and showed initiative. The room was pretty big with two beds, a dresser,... More

Me and my friend have eaten here two times now, and I have to say the food is not good. Tried breakfast, lunch and dinner dishes, and we where not pleased with what we got. The staff is friendly tho, and you will have a nice view of the ocean

I was looking for a private beach wherein I don't get to see nearby houses, dogs.. I justwanted to see only the sand, coconut trees and the sea. The room was okay. All in all, not my type of beach....

We decided to try to stay at Marlin's for the 1st time on our 4th trip to Bantayan Island. As we entered (as Filipinos), we were not greeted by any staff. One staff member told my kid, "sorry you can't swim here" (in bisaya), unknowing that we are paid guests just arriving. The staff (throughout our stay) was very attentive... More

Location is perfect for dining in its restaurant or sea view room. But no hot water, TV is broken, first floor sea view room will get your valuable things easily stolen. so pls use the safe. walk distance to other hotels

Another good resort situated on the beautiful stretch of Kota Beach in Bantayan Island. I just discovered this resort when we were looking for some good place to eat. We stayed that time in Kota Beach Resort (separate review here in TA). KBR is situated perhaps on the best spot of Kota.. but in terms of dining experience, we were... More
