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

The hotel is not easily accessible. Means of access is through tricycle and the road going there is rocky. Since its not easily accessible and far from the highway, we had to walk from the resort to the highway in the rocky road. The hotel staff did not assist us to call a tricycle so we had to walk and... More

I spent 2 nights on Olango Island at Talima Beach Resort. I was with my wife and my baby and we enjoy the tranquility of the island, the village nearby the resort and especially the resort staff. They were very helpful with us, giving us a lot of information about the Cebu area. The rooms were very nice and clean,... More

The place is situated right in the Marine Sanctuary so snorkeling is just stairs away! The place is clean and we'll-maintained. The staff is quite attentive and will take the extra mile to please their guests. Compared to hotels in Mactan, Talima Beach offers the greatest view at night as it is right across from Mactan. You can drink your... More

We stayed last December 2013 for few nights in this resort , all I can say is this is perfect place for the honeymooners you will have privacy. The food was delicious and affordable. The highlight of this resort is the staff, it is very hospitable and accommodating. We would definitely stay in this resort again.

Whoever thought a place could look like this.... the warm water and great snorkeling were amazing. I hope we can go back one day soon. If you don't have a certification to dive definitely get one. This is a good place to do it.
