Very poor service, they can not cooked! Check out at 7am time the music from 5 am was very loud to wake up guests! The location is great but they ruined the nature by using the blue containers to float their cottages. Shower and toilet area are disgusting! Over priced!

Took a bunch of my family for a special treat in Grace Island, and God to our surprise! Never did I imagine that there could be a hidden paradise that could offer a very private, secluded and awesome environment. Really perfect for a family outing, thus an experience of a lifetime.

I was on a round Mindoro motor cycle trip when I came across the advert for Grace Island outside the booking office. I met Emmily and she convinced me that i should go for a day night trip and I'm glad I did. The trip out to the island on a small banca was a pleasant ocean trip. a bit... More

My trip to grace island is one of the most relaxing escapades I've had in years. The place offers a breathtaking 360-degree view. The resort itself is situated in a private island cove. The rooms that we slept in were actually huts that floated in the water. It's possible to go straight into the water and go swimming from your... More

Whenever we come home to my wife's province of San Jose in Occidental Mindoro, we make it a point to spend the day at Grace Island Resort, and everytime we visit, they always have something new to offer. Notably this year, every aspect of the island is now organized and marketed into different packages to suit your group size and... More

I feel in love with Grace Island the moment I saw it. They welcomed us by a singing band but it would have been better with drinks (just a suggestion). Staying a day is very cheap. Their big boat is good for 30 people and it cost only 6k. When we were there, they were still reconstructing some parts for... More

During my last trip to San Jose, we took a fairly large group of about 25 persons to Grace Island for the day. The trip was fairly inexpensive just a couple of hundred USD for the boat trip, admission, floating day cottage and an hour or two of kayak usage. Its an ideal place to bring foods and drinks for...

We arrived at Grace Island around 11am. We were supposed to be fetch around 7am at Sikatuna Hotel but ended up getting fetched around 9:30am. Since the waves were kinda strong at sikatuna, we were forced to ride the boat at Camanauit Port which is around 4km from sikatuna beach. Estimated tricycle ride time is around 10 mins. And we...
