We went in March, 2015. This place was very nicely maintained. The room, the garden and the dining room were all clean. Better than basic. Considering that the island was hit by Typhoon Haiyan/Undoy, the damage to the resort must have been very bad but it seemed like they have recovered nicely. Regarding the sand in Bantayan Island. It's light... More

Hotel is located on the nicer side of Bantayan Island, where the water is calmer and shore is longer. Rooms are made of container vans and have comfy beds. Just a few things the hotel should take note of: - Best to have a phone in each room since it's so taxing to go to the lobby area if you... More

I love the place, their restaurant and everything! The rooms are cool because instead of using concrete walls, they are using the (idk what it's really called) truck walls? Anyway, the food that they serve from their restaurant is scrumptuous and it's not expensive at all. Lastly, the beach is PARADISE. It's clean and the sand's really white and it's... More

A very relaxing place to visit. Great views, specially the sunrise! Delicious foods! Locals are very hospitable and helpful, specially their all of their staffs. Gifts are not expensive. We will visit the place again. Clean beach front. White sand.

Anika was lovely. Rooms are in mint condition and have a unique style. The restaurant served good food at reasonable prices. Their beachfront is well-maintained, evident when you look at surrounding resorts. They have a guard looking out for guests' belongings by the beachfront so you feel safe when wading in the cool water. Our stay was perfect - except... More

Bantayan Island has few places right on the white sandy beach and this is one. We stayed in the 'back block' of converted shipping containers! An experience in its own right. Clean, tidy, airconditioned (it worked!), Staff very helpful but you have to ask for daily room service. TV did NOT work most of the 5 days I was there... More

Always a good time when I come to Bantayan. We rented bikes and just bike around the town then we alway grab our meals from Anika since we stay here plus they have the best meals in the island. I really loved our court room. Very affordable and proximal to the beach stretch. Cant wait to go back

We found their Courtyard room have lack of space, its decked balcony almost the same the size of its room (proportioning not good) . Although it's cheaper than the other rooms, good for backpackers only. Nice beach. Food a bit expensive & not so good.

We went to Bantayan Island without any reservation. We hired a tricycle service to look for one. We went to Sta. Fe Beach Club first to check it out, then we moved to Anika to see what they have. After seeing the container vans beautifully converted into beach cottages, we immediately decided to stay here. We got a beachfront cottage.... More

Bantayan's beaches boast fine white sand like Boracay minus the crowds. Plus, the water is way much cleaner. Anika Island Resort is a private getaway where one can relax and simply enjoy the sun and sand. It is a relatively new and clean resort. It has the best restaurant among the resorts in the area and a lot of sumptuous... More
