the place is different and worth a try. went after yolanda and found it in good repair. outside borongan city and therefore difficult to get to and back from. while different, it was odd to find a place like this... seemed like a fantasy land. most of the amenities and services at the hotel were down or run down during...

Its a great place to chill out for a few days... or weeks. Kids have plenty to do in Pete's fanciful pools and the reef always has something new to... More

I have been there 11 times and usually go November thru February months since you can surf a private wave in front of the resort. It is situated in a good location where you can walk to the small town of Borongan or take an inexpensive trycycle. There is some night life located at the Blvd. The outside kitchens are... More

I am an American (from Arizona) living in the Philippines. I first visited Pirate's Cove in 2003 and it continues to amaze me every visit. Like anywhere else, the Philippines can sometimes be a stressful place. However, once you enter the gates of Pirate's Cove, all worries disappear. Pete (the owner) has spent decades perfecting the "Pirate" experience. You will... More

It was just lovely and so much fun. The owners, Pete, Rhodora and their lovely daughter Kelly were so hospitable... More

I've stayed at Pirate's Cove three times now and found it to be relaxing and enjoyable. The owner even given me a few free meals when I was staying there after I got to know him. The area and town of Borongan are cruisey and nice to hangout in. So if you want a relaxing place to hang out In... More
