My friend and I decided to book Tugawe Cove Resort for a year end vacation based on reviews from TripAdvisor. We booked the lakeside casitas. After a week we were informed that we were transferred to a hillside casita because there were double bookings, but they assured us that it is near the restaurant. We were really excited since we...

Despite the messed up reservations (we had booked 2 double deluxe rooms, but were given a "family cabana" -- a room with 3 beds and a sofa-bed, in a two story concrete block of about 6 rooms), we had all the intentions to really love this place. The setting is amazing, truly awe-inspiring. The pictures are all true. BUT, there... More

Good: - Pool - View from the restaurant and pool - Rooms - Speed boat - Staff (accommodating) - ISLAND HOPPING! :) Something to improve on: - Bugs flying in the restaurant (quite understandable since the resort is in an island)

I went here with my boyfriend for the early celebration of my birthday. I'd just recently visited Mactan's Mövenpick Hotel and although the place is beautiful, I told myself "Nothing beats Tugawe" We took a bus, boats to get here which took us almost 24 hours, it was so exhausting. But when we got to this paradise, it was all... More

We had a problem regarding our boat transfer. a day before our trip Jana ( the booking manager) told us that instead of charging us 800 (roundtrip) for our boat transfer she said that there was sudden changes in their rates and will charge us a thousand per head instead. So, she suggested that we just rent a boat directly... More

The hardest thing about our stay was traveling to the resort itself. But on the last leg of the journey, they actually send a speedboat to pick you up -- still 3 hours, but at least you're comfortably seated. Once you arrive at the resort, though, the place is simply stunning. The cove had lovely blue waters and white sand,... More

We made our booking through agoda.com and booking was confirmed days before our actual trip. Upon reaching Camarines Sur, i phoned the hotel to confirm my reservation, only to find out that the hotel was unable to close their system with Agoda and that the resort was overbooked. My booking was for 2 rooms which the hotel was asking us... More

Photos can't do the setting and region justice. It really is stunning. This isn't a 5 star resort and not everything at Tagawe worked perfectly, but we had a magical 4 nights, three generations of family all loved it, the staff really tried hard, and we will strongly recommend it to friends and family. Tips: - We flew in/out of... More

First of all, I'd like to say that you'll be disappointed by the beachfront. The sand in the hotel resort is a little rocky and not at all fine or white. Hence, if you want to get the authentic Caramoan experience, you absolutely have to pay for their island tour packages. It is in the islands where you'll appreciate the... More
