We have been here the first time and absolutely loved this place for two things; the lovely Italian food and the great escape from the city. Getting there is easy either via the Batangas port for Php280 one way to Muelle port where it is a short 5 minutes drive away from the resort but would highly advise that you... More

Staff was very nice. Food was good with a good value. Property was clean and well maintained. Beach was very quiet. As was hotel. This place is wonderful. The resort layout is very clever and there is always a peaceful feeling about the place whether in the room or outside. The view seems spectacular from every angle. A real pleasure... More

I just spent a week at Fishermen's Cove and I am looking forward to going back again for a longer period. The resort is perfect; not too big, quite and immersed among the mangroves. Of course, the sun rising around 6AM means that you will hear birds singin quite early in the morning; I don't know how you feel about... More

I stayed with a group of friends and family in September and enjoyed the break so much I thought I would write a review. This is a very relaxed place with a hands on boss - Guiseppe - who tries to make sure everyone is enjoying themselves. Especially the food. We all had a great time diving - it was... More

We were a group of 20 friends, with childrens and teenagers. Our objective for this week-end of 3 days was: to relax and dive. Giuseppe, the omnipresent owner of this great resort, perfectly understood our wishes and offered to us the best services with a remarkable efficiency. Exceptional diving conditions: material, boats, guides and instructors. Delicious Italian food. We'll come... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Fishermen's Cove in August. Being a foodie, I really liked the food and service, especially as all meals are included in the price. Great quality and lots of it. And the staff did everything we asked. The location of the resort was not so good, but they took us to a nice nearby beach... More

It was very lovely and welcoming. The food was spectacular and there was an amazing choice of activities for example scuba diving and snorkeling. The view is lovely and having a pier makes traveling very convenient. While there I learnt how to scuba diving and achieved my open water diving license.

We picked Fishermens Cove because it was No 1 on Trip Advisor. It was very hard to make a booking ln the Philippines but we found out later this is because most customers come from Italy. All the other guests were regulars from Italy. And we wanted to stay 2 nights, but you can only book "full boarding" where you... More

The restaurant offers such an authentic and homemade... More
