Having booked our accommodation elsewhere and found it not to our liking we spent a lot of time at Marlins. The menu is extensive and the food excellent. The staff are friendly and efficient. We ate either lunch or dinner here each day and used their sunbeds in the afternoon. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Bantayan Island.

I fell inlove with this resort the moment I saw it. The beach and entire ground was clean and well-maintained. The staff were warm and friendly and food was good. The guard was really helpful that time because he gave us directions and other helpful tips that we could use while staying in the island. Oh and I love the... More

We are very regular clients of this resort, that we used to consider as our second home in the Philippines. Our kids love the waitresses/waiters, so very friendly with them. But things have changed recently, the ambience is not as good especially since 3 of the best waitresses have been fired and told on a Wed to leave 2 days... More

The rooms itself were affordable, HUGE, and spacious. The location is a few minutes walk to all the other bars and restaurants which is very... More

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
