Don't be daunted by the price. This place is actually really great value. We got the deluxe bungalow and paid extra to have 5 people in it (came out about 450 per person). It had a lovely outside area where we could hang out and our own private slice of the beach. The view from our place was spectacular and... More

Decided to stay for one full week to really enjoy a break without moving from place to place - and we did not regret at all! A bit tough to get to, but it is worth it. If you want a truly laid back, peaceful pure beach atmosphere on a budget, this is the place. Even if you are not... More

We were on a boat trip around Mindoro and Busuanga and Pandan Island was just one of many islands we were to visit for this trip. We were blown away by the beauty of the marine sanctuary here which had turtles and a hundred fish species apart from the beautiful coral formations. We decided to stay one more night and... More

Our schedule didn't allow us to spend the night on the island but based on what we saw that afternoon, I think it would have been pleasant. There was a 150 peso admission fee (paid only by day-trippers, which we were). The food was priced reasonably. Service was good and friendly. The resort was sufficiently clean. Water pressure was adequate.... More

We didn't stay in Pandan Island due to bookings being fully booked, so we stayed in a nearby island hotel though we stayed most of the time in Pandan Island due to diving. Pandan Island is a very clean, peaceful and lovely island and we're really gutted every time we have to leave the island in the evening. The staffs... More

I had the opportunity to experience all Pandan Island Beach Resort when I joined my cousin and some of her friends in a beach getaway. I researched the net about the island as soon as I heard it from my cousin. And the blogs I read can be summarized into two words, relaxingly beautiful. White sands, coconut trees, hammocks everywhere,... More

It truly is like paradise. The cabins are right in front of the sea and the hammocks are waiting for you. The food is ok but it's worth it to stay here for at least a couple of days. They have diving and snorkeling material and a "house turtle" that always swims around the island. They provide trips to apo... More

We booked three nights at Pandan Island in early March 2014 and our only regret is that we did not book more nights and days there. We arrived quite late on the Monday night as the 10am dimple star bus from Manilia does not arrive in Sablayan until around 7.30pm - but we informed the resort and they told us... More

We really enjoyed our stay. The staff was very friendly and the island is beautiful. From the beach, you simply walk out to snorkel amongst some really great coral heads or towards the sea grass side to view sea turtles. Dinner buffet was just ok one night (mostly Western-ish food) but the next night, it was great since there was... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Pandan Island is a private island with a small resort on the West coast of Occidental Mindoro, Central Philippines.Since the island was 'discovered' and the resort established in 1986 by a French adventurer, this tropical island retreat has been voted time and again as one of the top resorts in the Philippines, not in terms of luxury (we do not have air-conditioned rooms, room service or cable television networks on the island) but for it's life close to nature and it's personalized atmosphere. Pandan Island is for people who like to spend time in tropical surroundings where you are woken up by the singing of colorful birds, where there is only a palm tree between you and the sea, where you still know your neighbors.All bungalows are built in native materials, like coconut lumber, bamboo, sawali, cogon grass to let them blend easily into their tropical surroundings. Care has been taken to provide a simple yet comfortable atmosphere with a maximum of privacy for all who need to get away from hectic life. Since all the electricity on the island is provide by a solar system our bungalows do not have air-con or fans.T he bungalows are built directly by the sea separated from the beach only by palm trees and / or bougainvillea bushes with the breeze from the sea providing for ventilation.Each house has its private gecko (lat. gecko gecko) that is believed to bring good luck to the house it inhabits.Besides spending your day in a hammock or exploring the few secluded beaches, we offer a wide range of activities to choose from. Scuba Diving in the coral gardens around Pandan or around the nearby Apo Reef is the most popular and exciting activity to engage in but we also offer you the possibility to explore the jungle rivers of nearby Mindoro by kayak or visit the small coastal town of Sablayan and meet its friendly inhabitants.However you choose to spend your vacation, our staff will do their utmost to make your stay on Pandan Island a relaxing or adventurous experience. ... more   less
