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

We were suggested this hotel by a local in the boat ride on the way to Santa Fe pier. I wouldn't want to go to any other hotel when I go back to Bantayan Island. 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

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....
