I was surprised to find a very lovely resort in Bantayan that offers great customer service, and yummy food!It's pretty scarce to find that in the island. Their beachfront is lovely, way better than Boracay. Clean, and serene. I'll be back again.

We decided on Marlins for our last minute vacation before school starts. This was a pleasant surprise. The room was very spacious and comfortable. Their food was very good and reasonably priced. Everyone of their Staff is friendly. Resto service was a little slow as everything is cooked to order. Would definitely return.

We even asked some of their staffs to take photos of us together with my beau because we have no one to ask. They were so kind to do that! When in... More

I didn't stay here but I used the sunbeds and ate the fish curry. It was beautiful food. Cheap and a generous portion! I used the sun loungers and I wasn't harassed to buy something. The staff are so friendly and it's Infront of the beautiful crystal clear waters!

"Love at first sight" a feeling that we never forget when we saw the beach vicinity. The location was very convenient for all those who are new to the island, close by the port. And what made feel excite the most was the "entrance rate", unbelievable cheap/affordable and you could use the facilities offered, take note... It's truly a paradise.... More

We love this place! the location is perfect, the waters are turquoise, the sand is white, no need to photoshop any picture:) The staff is very friendly, our toddlers were so well taken care off, and there is even a life guard on duty. Rooms are very clean, the food is awesome, what else?

From the time I arrived I got brilliant service..at check-in, in the restaurant, from all the staff working there. In fact everybody working there contributed to the the excellent service I got. It was very clear that the resort was run by a family and that all the staff had been hand-picked. This indeed contributed to the very nice and... More
