From start to finish we had a lovely time at By the Sea. We were picked up right on time by Chiara and Flavio from the pier at Looc and taken by private boat to their beautiful location, as it says right by the sea! on a quiet remote beach. The beach is on W Coast and faces the sunset.... More

From the moment we got on the boat the took us to this resort everything was fun and relaxing. Chiara had a lunch waiting for us complete with red wine and Flavio offered to accompany us on a trip to the waterfalls the next day. Whatever we wanted they helped us do. They made their boats available and looked after... More

We approached by boat and were made to feel so at home and intstantly relaxed by Flavio and Chiara. The cooking was impressive, authentic and delicious - so much of it we had to take a mid-meal break and cool off in the sea water pool! Home late evening, sailing back by the light of the full moon. Magic!

Visited romblon in May, and stayed in this wonderful resort. From reservations to transfers, Ciara was very accommodating, and she replied to all my queries promptly. Everything went smoothly :) The rooms are very spacious and clean. My favorite part is the food!! I didn't expect to have amazing home cooked Italian dishes in this island. They also provided a...

Spent 6 glorious days at this remote resort on Tablas Island in June. From the first email I sent with initial enquiries regarding accommodation and transfers, I was impressed with Chiara's quick response and helpful advice. We chose to make the trip to Tablas Island from Caticlan on board the '2GO' ship (check the 2GO website for sailing times), which... More

I stayed for 5 nights at the By The Sea Resort with a friend after staying in Boracay for 4 nights. I did like Boracay for its beautiful beaches but it looks more like a spring break destination now. However, going to this hotel and discovering Tablas island, following Flavio's (the host) pieces of advice, you get to meet not... More

We came to By the Sea Resort for a day trip from Boracay. And we didn't want to leave! After a longish boat ride from Boracay, we met with Chiara who then came onto the boat to take us to a bamboo snorkelling platform near a local village. The waters were crystal blue, and there were an array of fish... More
