Economy room, clean, double bed and mosquito net, A/C old and must climb on chair to turn on/off. Also pedestal fan. Bathroom adequate. Food O.K but largely Philippine menu + pasta. Pool nice, but the best thing are the day beds in the shade with mattress, cushions and a cool breeze with views over the water to Mactan. Very very... More

Sorry, I have say it. It's sad. It's located at the end of a bumpy path, the trike has a hard time to get there. The staff is slow. After I ordered, I even had to get water and a cup from a others guest's table after he left. Sorry, what kind of service is that? Honestly... There was no... More

My partner and I stayed here last November specifically to have a cheap and cheerful dive weekend away from Singapore. Over time, we've discovered we get a little disappointed with the cost vs experience delivered when it comes to 4-5 star hotels, so we now choose more basic and simple accommodation. As a result, we rarely come away feeling irritated... More

Stayed here last March with my partner and a friend. We just came from Boracay and decided to visit cebu for the weekend to do some snorkeling before hitting back to Manila. Since we've been in Cebu a couple of times already, we decided to try the waters of Olango. Just a 15-minute passenger boat then another 15-min tricycle ride... More

Getting there is easy (30minutes/800pesos) taxi from Mactan Airport > Hilton pier (20minutes/ 15pesos) ferry to Santa Rosa > Talima resort ( 20minutes / 150pesos ) motorized tricycle ride. The resort is tucked beautifully in quiet secluded corner of the island. I booked the family chalet... Spacious, clean, hot water... perfect!. Excellent for those who seek peaceful and relaxing place... More

This resort is situated on Olango Island, about 30 minutes boat ride from Mactan Island, follow by 15 minutes tricycle ride. The resort is peaceful and quiet, with friendly staffs. There is food served at the resort which is at a reasonable price with a good selection of cuisine. Try and avoid to go at weekends as the resort benefits... More

I chose Talima because of the nice reviews in trip advisor. But dont be deceived! The previous reviews are correct. The professional photos looks nicer on their website. And also like the previous comments... Talima beach is misleading because there is no beach! No sand strip...We did not swim on the "beach" because there are many corals and stones. The... More

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of March. The place was ver quiet, with few, or no other guests for the duration of our stay. The staff were all very helpful, the rooms were simple, clean and comfortable. We booked the beach villa which accommodated our family of 5 easily. We asked for a few extra bits,... More

We've stayed twice at Talima with our family. The staff are very friendly and helpful and honest. The local dive master, named Moki, can be recommended for all levels of divers. It's a simple place, but very relaxing. It's not hard to get there from the Cebu/Mactan Airport; just a short ferry ride.

My sister and I stayed at Talima Beach Villas and Dive Resort on a weekend that caught the fringes of a typhoon in Central Visayas. We arrive at Mactan Airport early morning to catch the public ferry amidst tall waves and a tricycle ride on bumpy roads (+/- 1 hour trip in all). Because the waves were quite strong due... More
