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

We stayed in the huge family bungalow for 5 nights. When we first arrived, I thought we had really paid too much for what it was. At over £40 GBP / night I was expecting a bit of a treat, and although the bungalow is gigantic, with a double bed downstairs and 3 single beds upstairs, it is still very... More

I can imagine that at its prime, Villa Marmarine was a wonderful place to stay, with lots of character - in fact it was recommended to me twice, two years apart by different friends. But now the rooms are very dilapidated - I stayed in 3 over the course of my 6 days there (mostly because I was too lazy... More

Spent 3 nights over there. As I didn't confirm the booking with them prior to the check-in, the Yoshi room was not available on the day itself. Instead Tomo was offered instead at Yoshi rate which was much appreciated, followed by Yoshi room the remaining two nights. Try to book at least 3 nights if possible as they provide various... More

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
