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...

It was quite a long and tiring trip coming all the way from Lipa city, Batangas to Sta Fe, Bantayan Island. We took the Air Asia flight for Cebu and upon landing at Mactan International Airport, we rode in a private van that I hired going to Hagnaya Port. It took us more than 3 hours to reach the port...

The resort was nice, the room is very clean and spacious, comfortable beds, nice hanging racks inside and outside. The beach front was nice for just hanging out but not for swimming. During low tide there are alot of stray dogs running around. Best if your swim on the far side across the sand bar. Nice table arrangement on the... More

Near to a nice beach in a 2 storey cement building in a closed area. Service was average, but the restaurants of Santa Fe were in walk distance...Also the nice Kota Beach was around the corner. Its ok

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!
