I stayed at Villa Marmarine for the last week of a five week Philippines vacation. All things considered, this was my favorite spot for a few reasons: 1. The owner (Dagman), his family, and his staff were very friendly, fun, and kind. They saw I was travelling alone and invited me to play tennis with them (they play daily at... More

We went there and asked for the small cottage by the beach. They told us it was rented that evening and it would be free tomorrow. We stayed in a small room with a small bed and a mosquito net that night. The next day I asked when we could move into the cottage. I was asked for how long?... More

We did not plan an overnight stay in Siquijor for we only wanted to tour around the whole island within the day that we got there. However, we've been captivated by the sea of crystal blue hues and serenity. So, we decided to look for a place to stay in order for us to be able to take a dip... More

Nice cottages. Beautiful and quiet beach with fine, white sand. Good service. Good food. Only complaint is that the restaurant closes at 7:30pm. There's nothing to do after dinner since there is no bar in the resort and even nearby.

I was staying near Larena at Flora's Dive Resort and was out on a motorbike trip one day and came here to eat. The staff were welcoming and efficient. The location was quiet, off the road, and is on a long clean white sand beach that was deserted. The place was well-looked after with an efficient reception. The Japanese lady... More

A lot of Japanese guests, friendly guests. Staff speaks Japanese and are very helpful. Reservations are reliable. Food is great. You have the beach on your own. Terrace is a wonderful sight. Watch out for fireflies at night. Rooms are value for money and are built like bahay kubo. Prepare for power outages. I guess this is normal in the... More

From the terrace of villa marmarine you look onto a lovely white sandy beach. Local students work here and in return the Japanese owner supports them by funding their education. They also do a lot of other projects for the siquijor community. Both the owner and the staff make great effort to make your stay pleasant. We played a great... More

It was November during our visit to Siquijor. My sister and I were not quite sure about how the weather is gonna be in that part of the country but we proceeded with the journey. Before getting into the plane, we booked a cottage in Villa Marmarine resort and planned to stay for a night in Siquijor. I came across... More
