Perhaps one of the finest locations for a resort in the Philippines! This island is surrounded by beautiful coral reefs, white sand beaches, fabulous views of mountainous Mindoro Occidental, gorgeous sunsets and only a 2 hour boat ride to magnificent Apo reef, one of the best dive spots in the Philippines. The resort however is primitive. Its solar power only... More

The best resort we stayed at in our 1 month at The Philippines. So peacefully and romantic in a primitive way. Even the resort can have many guests (when you see them at the restaurant) you can be by your self at the beach. Nice staff good prices and VERY good snorkeling beach. Totally laid back place where you can... More

What an amazing island. We were lucky enough to stay on the island for five nights. We stayed in a large bungalow that had two downstairs bedrooms and one bedroom in the roof. It also had a nice seating area to chill out on. The rooms were kept clean, the beds had mozzy nets and the most gorgeous smelling bed... More

The island itself is very beautiful and location excellent. Bungalows were decent and atmospheric and food was very good. However the behavior of the French owner was completely unacceptable and ruined our stay in the island. We stayed in the island for 3 days and the owner was pretty much drunk the hole time letting the Filipino staff take care... More

I came here because of intrigue. So, when I had the chance to go on that side of the island I made it part of my itinerary. It's worth the trip. The island is so attractive. It relaxes the mind and body. You can either bask yourself under the sun or dip yourself in the water. The place is all... More

Pandan island is a small beautiful island but I don't recommend staying at Pandan Island Resort over night. After a first night at their bar, experiencing a very unprofessionell attitude of the french owner in a drunk state of mind we also noticed that the mattresses in our bungalows are very old, partly destroyed and very very filthy! The mosquito... More

We had an amazing 6 days diving on Pandan island. The diving instructor was so good and taught us to dive. The bungalow was nice and just on the beach. The food is alright (for the Philippines). The manager isn't very friendly. He charged us a worse euro exchange rate for our online bank transaction which meant it cost us... More

Pandan_Island, Owner at Pandan Island Resort, responded to this review

Concerning the exchange rate on Pandan Island, of course we don’t have the same as the rate given online, because this rate is for interbank. Foreign currencies when change in the Philippines, in money changer or bank or even at the airport you always get a low rate. On the island we prefer that our guest would pay in pesos,... More

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
