It's astonishing to see ants, ants-like insects climbing and flying around the place. So disturbing to know i have to sleep on a bed like this. Good part is that i woke up early around 5:30 and saw beautiful sunrise on the beach, which is something I'm longing to do but didn't have chance to. Even if I'm staying at... More

I stayed here about 6 years ago, the place is nicely built. You get to stay in the hut. Convenient access to the beach, where you can't swim. But still you can hear the waves in the morning and evening and while you lounge in the hammocks by the garden. Flowers in the restaurant freshly picked from the gardens. You... More

We reserved a smaller cottage but got a bigger one (Tomo room) because the other was not available; I loved our bigger cottage even tho it was really too big for just two of us. It even has a bedroom loft for additional persons. There was no air-conditioning but no need for it because the ventilation and breeze coming in... More

Even though I stayed at Villa Marmarine for only a night, and most of my days are spent circumnavigating the island, I felt that the place deserved a great rating. I got the cheapest room which is worth 500php, and it's near the parking area. If you don't mind the location and just seeks a place to crash for the... More

Stayed at Villa Marmarine 22-28 of December 2013. The place is really well kept, especially compared to the general standard in the Philippines. We stayed in Sayuri, which was the biggest (?) cabin there. Being just two persons in an enormous family cabin was a bit funny, but also a nice luxury. The tennis court was in superb condition. We...

We arrived here and at first sight from the bar area it looked great so we decided to stay. We just had a standard for the first night which was ok. After that we had to move as the room was not available for longer. We ended up in one of the new rooms near the beach. First impressions were... More

I Stayed at Marmarine for 2 nights and would have stayed longer if the weather was a little better. Since I was traveling alone, I stayed in one of the cheaper rooms near the parking area and found it clean and very comfortable. It has a private bathroom, and I thought it was a terrific value for just 500 pesos.... More

Marmarine has a selection of room types from simple fan nipa huts to fancy aircon rooms. We stayed in Fuji with a truly outstanding sea view. The owner, Mr Harada is very warm and friendly and all of the staff were very warm, sincere and accommodating. We took our 4 year old and she was treated like a long lost... More

Only built in 2008 and it looks like its been here for 50 years without any up keeping all these years. The service is dramatically slow and the food quality awfully poor. Low class decoration. If you're looking for a good meal forget about it...
