Vai problema. Nice and super friendly staff. Beautiful beach. No rip off place. Just sooo nice. Diving is also possible. We extended our stay. Sometimes we brought food from the marked, and they cooked it for us. Cheap and A LOT FOR YOUR MONEY

I was looking for a place to relax after the holidays and found it in Cove Sands Beach Resort. The place is located in Siaton. Less than an hour's drive from Dumaguete City. We got there late in the afternoon and the staff helped us settle down. The owner and the staff are all friendly and accommodating. Rooms are reasonably... More

As others have pointed out already, this is in a quiet place and on a quiet beach. After landing to Cebu and quite an interesting bus ride we made our way to the hotel (with the transport provided) and it was simply amazing to arrive. Staff was extremely friendly, meals were amazing (try the pancakes with mango) and tours were... More

No mobile phone connection, hardly good internet connection... Monarch Sands reminded me and my sisters how being unplugged really feels. And, it really felt bloody fantastic. The good and the bad: 1. We opted to take the city tour offered. This one, I will NOT recommend anyone to take. Dumaguete City has nothing in it, frankly, and the tour's fee... More

We really have an enjoyable stay at Monarch sands beach resort. There was a mouth-watering foods with reasonable prices, the staff are very friendly and attentive. Great ambiance and a peaceful place.... They offered tours that you will not feel bored during your stay. They provide dive packages at a very reasonable price. We guarantee customer satisfaction!!!!!!!

we arrived at the resort right after the summer season here in the Philippines... the very first impression that i had upon arriving at Monarch sands was; it did not match the photos shown in the web..but having a second thought though and realizing that it was the start of the rainy season (we actually did not know that there...

I will never recomend this place. Over-priced. Overrated. Website was deceiving, there was no white sands, paradise etc.. Monarch Sands is simply TERRIBLE. Beware of the transportation costs to and from the resort. Based on their website, the resort lies south of Dumaguete City. They didn't mentioned that it was located close to hell - very far from the city... More

Short and to the point: Jen (my wife) and I wanted some "couple" time, away from work, the city and our 3 great kids. Looking for a private beach resort (with diving as an option) no more than a 60 minute flight from Manila, we found Monarch Sands online. With 4.5 out of 5 ranking on TripAdvisor at rates below...

To the price you wont find it better. Nice sandy beach in a small bay next to a fishing village, beautifull view, Fine cottages, friendly and smiling staff and wonderfull food. Try their crepes with mango and banana :-)
