In most of the beach visits i had, i don't usually take a dip. But paradize isalnd was so inviting because of the clear clean waters. The food was superb and reasonably priced. We stayed overnight but the had a nice room and helpful staff. We were entertained by a fire dance and a family band. A mini zoo is... More

My wife and I (with and without extended family) come here whenever we visit Davao. We like the quick boat access, the clean sand and water, the views, the food and the gardens. This time, we stayed in a hut with it's own compound at a pricey PHP3,900 per night and enjoyed the hut's facilities. The food was as good... More

The island itself (Samal Island) is worth a visit. We went for the day and the boat happens to stop at this place. We didn't stay overnight but paid the entry fee, walked around the grounds, lay on the beach and had lunch (which was average quality but above average prices). The beach wasn't too impressive, although it got better... More

My family and I went to this resort and we arrived past 12noon. My husband was left behind because he brought the car with him with our food and supplies and took the ferry. We were there for just a day trip and opt to sleep on another resort with more practical rates for families. Unfortunately, my husband got stuck... More

I have no question with the place, amenities and the food. But my only concern is the receptionist named Kim. She must be friendly and warm in accommodating inquiries and reservation with a tone of respect not rude and dry in talking to a telephone conversation. She seemed threatening me in giving instruction about the policy of the resort when... More

We have stayed here for two weeks in each of the past two years. The beach is wonderful! We also did jet skiing, snorkeling, pedal boats, pool, ping-pong, visited the bird sanctuary there, ate some meals, enjoyed the shows, took the ferry back and forth to Davao, took the barge and had massages and everything was great. Compared to the... More

First time I came here 11 years ago, had lovely day trip and even came back shortly after for camping. Now in 2015 it is an absolute disgrace to the Philippines. When we arrived we had some extremely arrogant and gleeful security guards open our bags without permission and remove drinks and snacks. Im fine with not consuming outside food... More
