The local is so far from the rest and I like it. I got a standard Polynesian hillside cottage with a pretty huge space inside, a hot and cold shower, a veranda, a queen size bed, a perfectly working A/C, and a working desk. The room also includes a continental breakfast and free access to the infinity pool, the orchidarium,... More

The resort is a bit far from the siquijor town proper but once you'll get here you will surely love the place. The food in their restaurant was fair enough although it took time for them to serve the food (30mins or more)... Their rooms were clean. and the pool was very nice also.. A safe place to visit! They... More

To start with the bad news: the rooms are not that well maintained BUT, the Bulakna offers definitely one of the best views on the island and it comes at very affordable rates. The cottages are simple but have all you need (simple bed, AC, water heater and toilet/shower). We have been looking at several resorts on the island, and... More

We stayed here for 3days and 2nights a week after holy days. Since we are in a long distance relationship, my boyfriend and I are used to travel every time we see each other . We really have to make it extra special. So this summer 2014 we chose a bit of Dumaguete and more of Siquijor. As per choosing... More

We stayed in this resort last April 2014 during Holy week. We had difficulty getting there as the people in the port (Siquijor Port) are asking so much for them to send us to the resort. They continuously telling us that it was far, and their gasoline is expensive and all so I suggest that you contact the resort for... More

If you're looking for a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city life, come and visit the Archipelago's island of fire and stay in Princesa Bulakna Resort located at Maria, Siquijor. It is definitely the perfect place to be if you want peace and comfort. The proud staffs were very warm and accommodating. They were very helpful... More

We had the pleasant experience of staying at the Princesa Bulakna Resort for two nights and three days. Our group numbered 9 people including 4 children ages 12 years down to 5 years of age. After a horrible experience at another resort we stumbled onto the Princesa and were overjoyed that we did. The resort is going through an upgrade... More

We wanted to stay in this resort and decided to stop by and have a meal. It was completely deserted, overprised meals, rooms, almost nothing available from the menu. Green water in the swimmingpool... It looked like a place, that was nice and full of life 15yrs ago... There are much nicer places in Siquijor then this one. And after... More

if you are looking for a resort with amazing amenities, do not stay here. again, this resort is not your dream destination if you are looking for a posh resort. What the place lacks in beauty, the resort staff compensates for being very attentive. For me, I got my money's worth because I was treated like a princess. The resort... More

We intended to stay for 2 nights but couldn't wait to leave after our first night. The rooms are very basic and very dated. Noisy air con, tv didn't work, cockroaches in our room. The meal we ordered took 3 hours and when it arrived it was cold. Swimming pool looked nice but on close inspection was very cloudy and... More
