We originally contacted them about the pickup service in Bacalod as we were already there. They responded that it cost $125US!!!!!!!! Any taxi in Bacolod will beg to drive you for $35US........ We...

We really enjoyed the place! It has a bar in the pool with nice music. The food in the restaurant was great too! Nice staff and you can ask for a discount on the room. It's not expensive anyway.......

We went to Sipalay because we heard the diving was supposed to be really good. If you are not a diver and you are not in the area - there is probably not really any reason to go to Sipalay. It is far from most things and does not really have any great attractions - other than a beautiful beach... More

Or if snorkelling or scuba diving is your activity this is the place to stay. This is a tranquil resort to spend the weekend, the location is picturesque and... More
