We stopped by at Marlin's for lunch since it seemed like a nice restaurant on the beach. Ended up getting one lousy pancake with baked-in bits of mango, and grilled snapper with lime. The lime part of the dish was a tiny local lime that you squeezed yourself on the fish. Snapper is also a very bony fish, so the... More

The hotel has very good restaurant and beach lounge area facing the sandy beach. Good restaurant at reasonable prices and excellent staff manners at the kitchen and the bar/restaurant. The rooms were good size with below average quality furniture and no TV. Laundry service is daytime robbery. Avoid it at any cost. The next hotel next to it, Amihan, will... More

We we given a beach front room which was very nice. The staff are friendly enough. The location is great being on a nice beach... More

The rooms are huge and the food in the restaurant is so good. I just hoped the water supply in the bathrooms was better. I like how they cook the food, very fresh and very filipino. The passion fruit juice is my favourite! Overall, i love the place.

GENERAL OBSERVATION Bantayan island is a great beach location, beautiful with its white sand and shallow waters; and definitely laid back, low key and relaxing. That is the vibe I was seeking. Nightlife should not be the draw to inspire visit but there are cafes and restaurants that will satisfy one's need for things different. I will unhesitatingly return. By... More

The place is pretty. I like the arrangement of the chairs and tables and sunbeds. Now here are the things that made me unsatisfied. 1.) The bathroom stinks! The moment we entered our room, there's this unpleasant smell coming out from the toilet. We flushed the toilet bowl and the bad odor's gone. But the smell comes back from time... More

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.
