We got 3 rooms, 2 sunset and 1 sunrise villas.. Room was nice, medyo mahina un water but it's fine, I love the pillow! Food was good but you can try other restaurants. Best to rent a bike, para mas mabilis makapag libot. I'll probably booked anika again.

A year after Yolanda, we headed straight to the island that was greatly affected by the typhoon. We saw some damaged houses and establishments. There were no street lights at night and the place was quiet. But nonetheless, it's still a nice spot to visit especially when you're with your family. This is a beachfront hotel with stunning views and... More

It took me a while to post this review but after everything that I experienced. Its just hard not to share it. Visited last March 2015. Went over a lot of options and asked a few people on where to stay while in Bantayan. Booked the standard room since Im usually a solo traveler. And its really nice. Very comfy... More

Striking points for me to remind of Anika are : beautiful sunrise and sunset, cabanas for relaxing accommodations at the beachfronts and great foods at the resto. We stayed at the Sunset villa located along the side at the entrance of the resort. The room was not comfortable to stay during daytime because the capacity of the aircon cannot sustain... More

We stayed at the Ocean View Room, and it really was in front of the ocean. You have to book early as Anika is often fully booked. Despite this, you can hardly see the crowd in the hotel vicinity (except perhaps during meal times). It's very quiet, although the walls are thin (on the ocean view villas). We could hear... More

Spent 3 days with family in this resort and was not disappointed. The resort is eco friendly made of containers modernized and converted into units that can withstand a typhoon even a cyclone. The friendly owners and staff aim to please and accomodated some requests that made our stay so comfortable and enjoyable. The sumptous food selection ever so fresh... More

I lived in Bantayan Island when I was younger and have been to my fair share of resorts. Anika so far has gone beyond my expectations. Rooms: We were traveling as a group of six so we got two sunset villa rooms (2,500 each, second cheapest room max 3 pax) with extra beds (these cost 500.00 at the resort, if... More

The hotel is located within walking distance from the Santa Fe Ferry and provides a free shuttle to the hotel. The hotel is consisting of modified ship containers that are basic. The walls are (as you would expect) consisting of metal and even with Aircon the heat is intense. The bed itself only comes with one bed sheet and if... More
