I went here with my boyfriend last year ( May 2013). From Manila, it's an hour plane ride to Mactan airport then you have to take a cab to the Bus station and you'll be on the road for a little more than 3 hours and then you'll ride a ferry for another hour. Yes, it was very tiring but... More

It took us for our worth of land and sea travel from Cebu to reach Bantayan. When we got there the place was nice and clean! The ocean view rooms are amazing. The food was good and relatively cheap. Overall it was a good place to stay and just relax under the sun.

The long travel is definitely worth it! Anika Island Resort is really a paradise. It boasts of long stretch of white sand, pristine blue green waters, delicious food, uber-friendly staff and cozy container-type rooms. We got the beach front room and it is certainly worth its value.

Good thing i remembered a friend telling me about anika and i called them right away. Their driver picked us up in a van, and told us to inspect the place... More

A very late review. Just barely a month after typhoon Haiyan had just ravaged much of northern Cebu, I wasn't expecting much from this resort or any resort in Bantayan for that matter. To our surprise, they were open and still honored our reservation from weeks before. Port transfer to room check-in was a breeze. The staff were very courteous... More

We arrived around 1245 noon after a weary 5-6 hours trip from Cebu city. Unfortunately we had to wait for the room until was ready, my partner ask how long it will take and the receptionist said that the room will be ready in a short while. After 30 minutes waiting, we check again with the receptionist and she assured... More

We never had a problem booking a room in Anika. They are very prompt in replying to emails. Prior to arrival, we really appreciate that we received an sms asking us about the time that we're set to leave Hagnaya port for them to make sure that we will be picked up from Sta. Fe port. Our pick up service... More

The lady at the reception desk was more interested in talking with a colleague instead of serving us..we did not feel welcome. The rooms are very small and made of containers and not cosy and comfortable at all. The position is very isolated and not in walking distance from the marketplace, shops, restaurants etc. in Santa Fe. You can not... More

We stayed here last May 1 where most people are in La Boracay. So when we arrived here we get to enjoy and relaxed at the front beach with few other guests. The staffs are very accommodating. And the security is very good that someone from the gate made sure that we are safe when we go out to eat... More

I was there on May 7-8, 2014 and I all I can say is that It's a kind of resort that you take more than what you paid for . I had their courtyard room and it's really good even their toilet rug is whiter and cleaner than the towel used by some hotels. I would definitely recommend this resort... More
