After reading mixed reviews we decided to chance staying here for 2 nights primarily based on the fantastic beach location. We opted for the bay view room with private balcony offering uninterrupted views of the bay and beach. For a rate of PhP 2,800 (breakfast not included) I don't expect luxury but would have expected a certain degree of comfort... More

I make bookings based on the reviews I read. Since Santiago Bay has good feedbacks, i decided to book a family room for one night. Response rate thru email and mobile is fast. They also arranged the multicab driver who will pick us up from the port and tour us around. (Driver Lito is courteous and nice. Highly recommended! ask... More

'Santiago' has a good beachfront location with 2 swimming pools and great view from the ocean-view rooms. Our room was clean and cosy and had a balcony facing beach (which is public, but pretty clean), we had no maintenance problems, so won't be able to rate resort's service in this terms. The only little disappointment was that most of their... More

We were fortunate to have arrived at night time. Just imagine our delighted surprise with the unforgettable view of the shallow, wide, white sanded beach which greeted us in the morning's light. It was spectacular! Unfortunately it is the resort's ONLY outstanding feature. God alone deserves the credit for it. Our initial favourable impression didn't last long. Reception of our... More

We ended up staying here on the 2nd since it was our only choice. ( See my review on Pito's Sutokil ) The price wasn't bad at all. I think it came down to like $36 per night. The hotel view was excellent! Breathtaking..... The hotel grounds was ok. Lots and lots of stairs. We walked from the beach to... More

The hotel facilities were basic: - AC - 2 beds (which were larger than I expected, good for 2-3) - bathroom - TV (don't think they had cable) - closet (which we didn't really use); and - a vanity table with a big mirror The view on the second floor is great and they have chairs and a table outside...

Camotes is similar to any other small islands of the Philippines but the view from the Santiago Bay is excellent especially at 5:30pm. Low tide, wide shore, moon on the left and the sun setting on the right, the scene is perfect! The shore is clean, too. Yup, no trash... Yet. The resort is above average, clean rooms. The only...

This is a medium sized resort with a small children friendly large beach on Camtoes island Cebu. First let me tell you of the pluses: inexpensive, nice towels in the room, small but nice outdoor pool, well maintained gardens and grounds, and a very nice shallow beach with nearby local but small restaurants on the beach. Now let me tell... More

The view in this resort is really good with two infinity pools overlooking the beach. The rooms are ok however breakfast is not included. We loved our stay here that I even included Camotes in my top ten summer recommendations at http://www.iamafrustratedblogger.com/2014/02/summer-destinations-in-philippines.html
