We loved the place then, and still we love then now.... We were hesitant to come back at first because of the not so impressive reviews we read here on tripadvisor..

This was my 2nd time here but I enjoyed more our latest visit. It was a company outing of my husband and families were also invited. More than anything I love the beach. It was perhaps of the timing of a very good weather and not so crowded that time. The sea water is warm not so salty. You can... More

I brought a team of 24 ministers from Manila to conduct a Worship seminar for three days in Gingoog City. The schedule was very tight but the results were overwhelming. So, our church there brought us to Duka Bay Resort to relax and unwind. We certainly were not disappointed. We just rented one of the bigger cottages (with nets to... More
