This place had been recommended by several friends of mine who were so enthousiastic about it that I couldn't pass the opportunity to check that out by myself (and my wife). 1st impression when you check-in is that you are family, the owners, a Swiss (speaking French and german) lady and her German Hubby. They make you feel home at... More

It's been more than a week since my stay at Takatuka and I can hardly stop reminiscing about one of my best ever holidays. I was looking for an unspoiled and affordable beach destination to escape to during my break from work in the bustling capital of Manila and I couldn't have been happier that a couple of fortuitous twists...

This place has obviously had a lot of love and care put into the designs of the rooms, which you can see on most of the reviews here. And they are fun, and they have all the basics - clean rooms, friendly staff etc. But there's a few things that just annoyed me. We stayed in one of the most... More

After 9 months of travel, we decided to treat ourselves with a little vacation and we could not have picked a better spot. We spent 8 nights in this place and loved every second of it! The owners have clearly put a lot of love, effort, thought and time into their guesthouse and it shows on every level. It is... More

Takatuka isn't easy to get to. From the Bacolod airport, you will have to take a 4 hour taxi (or bus, which would take longer) ride, then a quick banka ride. But you understand what the fuss is about when you get there, where you are welcomed by a stretch of unspoiled beach, and the calmest waters. We spent 5... More

The comfort needs of guests vary extremely from one to the other, which makes it difficult to suite everyone a priori. Nonetheless, we spare no efforts to move heaven and earth to meet our guests’ individual convenience. Our housekeeping will immediately prepare an additional mattress for guests who affect sleeping on a softer bed…provided that our guests address the issue… More

The Nautilus, our room, was right out of Jules Verne--periscope, portholes, dioramas with crabs, seastars, fish. Theme went a bit too far—spray-painted bucket instead of a bathroom sink ? Privacy and space on our terrace but no sea view. Best feature : beach front with its clumps of wild pandan. Pretty outdoor restaurant, toes in sand which is pale, fine,... More

Takatuka is a unique boutique resort, full of surprises and little details, admittedly somewhat crazy. The bucket-style sink in our Nautilus room is part of the theme but in no way a loss of quality. It does not deserve being rated negatively. All our “gimmicks” are designed to be functional to a maximum. As stated on our website, the Nautilus... More

Such a unique experience and one we won't forget. The owners have clearly put their heart and soul into making the resort like no other in every possible way! From the moment you are met from the boat you know you have arrived in a very special place. Everything was excellent: the room was massive (a suite in hotel terms),... More

This is a small, exceptionally friendly, delightfully wacky place. Kalli and Cathy are great hosts. MM and Louie run the bar and restaurant. Food is plentiful and varied. A place just to hang and enjoy the beautiful beach and sunsets. If you are so inclined, whether a veteran or rookie, Veronica and Ronny will take care of your diving pursuits.... More

I loved it and i'll definitely be back. The way that the resort was designed makes it easy to have fun, relax, or both. It's fun because I don't think you'll run out of entertainment. There's always something new to notice, watch, play with, read, or just enjoy. But it's also relaxing. The staff will pamper you with delicious food... More
