We only stayed here for a night, and sadly we were not able to maximize our stay because the schedule of trips from Cebu to Bantayan Island was not very reliable. But we enjoyed the place and for its price, I must say it is worth it. We got the cheapest room which is the courtyard room, and although it... More

It was quite a long and tiring trip coming all the way from Manila to Sta Fe, Bantayan Island. Me and my husband were looking for a perfect, quite and peaceful place to relax, then we find Anika. It amazes us that their services were great! From port pick-up to check-in has no hassle, unlike the other resort that i've... More

We were having a team building in this resort. Their rooms are clean but too small, definitely not worth the price we paid for. Their restaurant serves food for almost an hour and prices are too high. I'd rather stay near Bantayan market where restaurants are more accessible.

Clean, much newer resort and maintained well at a reasonable price. The service is also great. Food at their resto is just average. Just 2 cons: that there are only 3 TV channels working, 2 of which are unclear. Another is that the tour guide who seems to be affiliated with their resort ripped us off for the city tour... More

So, we went there on Nov. 7-9, 2014. There were 4 of us and I booked 2 rooms. These rooms were paid in half for reservation. When we arrived at the resort, lo and behold they only booked us ONE room. Take note, we booked for TWO and made an advance payment for half of the cost and had an... More

I booked 3 rooms here as a continuing family vacation and I have mixed feelings about the entire stay. The rooms are as described by others set up in steel boxes. The beds are way too hard for me but the shower was clean, the water was hot and the beach area was very nice to relax on. The services... More

This place is a small resort made out of sea container. The rooms we had are small but clean The restaurant is ok. Food is ok, but not amazing. Service is slow service Location is a bit outside Santa Fe, around 20 mins walking into the city. In my opinion, in Santa Fe are better resort for smaller money.

Before I get started with my review, note that we were looking for a resort where we wanted to relax (without any water sports) and be with nature. Anika Island resort, in itself, is far by the best in Bantayan. From the staff who are all very accommodating and friendly especially the security guard who gave us great tips which... More
