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

2 words to describe this resort = the best! The rooms are made of container vans which is quite unique. Food is delicious and cheap! CR's are clean as well. Travel in bantayan is via motorcycle or tricycle. It is suggested that you rent a motorcycle outside of the resort as these come cheaper at around P300/day as compared to... More

But guess what... When we got there, they didnt have the room I reserved and confirmed several times in advance. You think they tried to... More

We stayed 3 nights and it was hassle-free, comfortable and their rooms are superbly clean and cozy. Their restaurant serves a good food; delicious and reasonably priced. Their halohalo is to die for. Everyone should try it! We stayed only 3 nights but would definitely stay longer in Anika the next time we visit Bantayan Island. Two thumbs up!

We stayed for a night here. Coming from spending 2 nights at Budyong Resort, Anika's rooms was pretty good to me. It was clean, with Cable LCD TV, comfortable bed & pillows, well designed room and CR with hot & cold shower, so many shelves to place your stuff. A great place for kids since they have a play area... More

Positives: great location, beautiful beach, very good service Negatives: cable TV wasn't functional, WIFI barely functional, food is restaurant not so good, beach security guard a bit overbearing and telling people they can't sit together in a single lounge chair on beach. Charged me 35p for some ice. Okay/Average: rooms, prices. Overall, very nice, but there's a better choice.

Anika is a very small resort, right on the beach, on Bantayan Island. There are maybe 30 units, all made up of modified, corrugated shipping containers. Mine was perhaps 10 feet by 20 feet. Aircon, TV, shower with hot water. Double bed. Small porch with table out front. It was clean and cost roughly $40 a day. Perhaps 5 km... More

Stunning beachfront, fine white sand, unique rooms, and great friends made this vacation awesome! The hotel van can pick your group up from the pier to the hotel. The reception area/restaurant had cool decors (starfish!). The staff were friendly although the service can definitely need more improvement.You would have to practice patience to get your chow so I suggest you... More

Was able to know about the resort from Tripadvisor and was curious with how the reviews described the resort. Booking in advance wasn't a hassle since the staff replied to my email queries. Oh! Make sure you ask what rooms are available on your target days so you can make a good decision. I got myself a sunset room for... More
