We spent a lovely and relaxing few days here just before Christmas. Chiara and Flavio were wonderful hosts - nothing was too much bother for them. Chiara's cooking was wonderful - in fact we enjoyed it too much! The bungalows have been built to a very high specification and the views from them are stunning. The highest bungalow has the... More

Stayed in the resort for 8 days over the new year period, felt like was in paradise, with beautiful location and views from everywhere, even from the cottages and the serene neighbourhood.. Cannot get such a secluded experience in Phillippines as in this resort. It has the perfect setting, only resort on this island and with green forests behind the... More

We stayed in Boracay three months between January to early April 2014 with our two sons 4 and 6 years old. As this is our second long stay in Boracay with our kids we know our way around both Boracay and the islands close by. However, this year was our first visit to Tablas Island and even if there´s not... More

I enjoyed the relatively isolated location of the resort, the authentic italian food, and most of all, the unlimited wine! I was the only one in the resort when i stayed so i had the whole place all to myself for 2 nights which was awesome..the hosts were very polite and attentive..great service! My stay was very relaxing...a perfect getaway..

Amazing nature, food, and people; what else can you ask for? All of the positive reviews here are spot on. The value you get for your money is astronomical, and the owners will treat you like family. Boracay was uninspiring by comparison. If I'm ever again in Philippines, I will visit Flavio and Chiara for sure!

For anyone going to Baracay, taking in a couple of days at "By the Sear Resort" is a great call. This is what I did and it was a highlight to my Philippines trip. Flavio & Kiara are gracious hosts who catered to all of my needs. The food - great!, the rooms - beautiful and scenic. The motorcycle tour... More

This resort is highly recommended for its food, location, atmosphere, and relaxation activities. I believe that food is the number one factor that makes one resort and another great. By The Sea Resort in Tablas is a great resort! The home cooked Italian meals are unparalleled in Tablas Island, let alone the whole of Visayas. You just can't beat freshly... More
