We are Canadian and have been staying in Philippines for two months.

It's native style with bamboo strip flooring and screen ceiling. The cottage could... More

The picture in the internet is perfect but in reality, it disappoints us. The place is too far. The beach is unclean. The pool is so dull. The place is totally disgusting. We already booked thru Agoda.com, but we ended up being transfered to other resorts. The resort staffs are unfriendly and rude.

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
