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.

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

Hotel was nice and clean. On the side of the island where its a nice breeze all the time. It doesn't get so hot there. I got food poisoning of something on the last night. The staff got worried about me, was very helpfull and drove me around to get the best treatment.

Many days passed when I visited this resort in Bantayan Island. The location is accessible to the Sta. Fe Seaport. They also have a parking space for guest bringing their own vehicles. The rooms are good. Guest will have choices to have one king-sized bed or two single beds on room. If there is a third person, they can provide... More

I was in desperate need of a vacation and a work friend of mine suggested I come to the Philippines. The 5-hour flight from Osaka, Japan to Cebu didn't seem on par with me because of the problems I have had with motion sickness but after some coaxing from my friends, I agreed and we scheduled the next flight to...
