Small intimate and away from mass tourism. Chiara and Flavio will welcome you in their Italian family. Less than 2 hours by boat from Boracay the island is the perfect escape from the crowd. It is nothing short than amazing. Only for romantic tourists who are looking for a genuine experience and see the real luxury in the exclusivity of... More

Sometimes when traveling the less beaten path you crave some comfort and familiar food... This little gem had everything needed: really really good food, homemade breads, pizzas and pastas with some hard to find (in the Philippines) ingredients thrown in to provided lots of flavour. Wine and usually 3 courses kept the family very happy. All meals are fantastic and... More

We stayed over Christmas on Tablas Island and was very glad we found By The Sea Resort. We were picked up from Boracay which we arranged over the phone and taken over to Tablas by boat to be met by Chiara & Flavio. What an amazing place to stay and a perfect place away from the hectic Boracay for a... More

It was mainly because of the reviews in Tripadvisor raving about its food and hospitality that a couple of months ago my wife and I decided to book with By The Sea resort for a stay from 18 to 25 December. During the booking exchanges I informed the resort (which is managed by an Italian couple) that we would bring... More

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...

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
