We went there last Sunday, March 22. In our way their, i was so entertained by the birds dancing at the top of the floating styro balls which was put in the barrier of the island property. Upon arriving, really wanna jump right away coz i thought its shallow for the water is really clear, then friendly people approached us... More

I have been trying to book this accomodation for some time now but could never get any responses. Fortunately I finally found a reliable email for bookings: annmenca.mktg@gmail.com Whilst staying at this accomodation I was fortunate enough to meet the lovely Mendoza Family who are the resort owners and provided this feedback to them. Bookings can also be made via... More

While this small less than 29 room resort had an annoying policy of requiring a bank deposit of 50 per cent of one' stay instead of the far more convenient option of giving a credit card number, i made up for this peeving shortfall by having excellent snorkelling off the pier. The resort is reached by prearranged bangka transfer from... More

Nalusuan is an island in from of Cebu city. Amazing place with a fish sanctuary, you can do scuba diving, snorkling, and enjoy the food, beach, and cottages. I was there for three times during my holidays with my family.

I am from the Philippines but never thought we have this kind of paradise in Cebu! if not because of our travel organizer Cebu Exclusive Holiday, we would not be able to visit this beautiful sanctuary just a boat a way from our province. We were able to see different kind of fishes, it was awesome! Nalusuan is the best... More

This little island is just adorable and romantic :-) 14 cabins located just by the sea, friendly staff, and good service. Good for snorkling and swimming! Rent a boat from Cebu, stop snorkling on the way out,go to the neighbour island and buy fish and seafood for lunsj, can be barbecued on the boat or at the island. Just fantastic:-).... More

This resort doesn't give a hoot about their customers. We tried calling for 2 days to get directions and boat transfer informations but nobody answers their phone. When I contacted the island itself, I was told to call their sales rep, I did that and for good measure tried calling all the numbers listed in their website, for two days.... More

We've visited the island now 3 times and I can't get enough of it. One of the reviews says 3 nights stay was a mistake, true 3 might be too long as the island is only small. We stayed one night on our first visit and it was not enough, then two days the next and it was fun. The... More

I stayed for 3 nights with family, big mistake. This is a nice spot and the staff are friendly but there are a lot of them and they don't really tidy or clean the place that well. Nalusuan island is used by very many day trippers, but there are incredibly few litter bins, so the place can get messy quite... More

On our 2nd time to visit Cebu, we were specifically looking for a good resort, with a wonderful beach, near Mactan, which is within our budget. There were lots of wonderful beaches to go to, but they are about 3-4 hours away from Mactan Int'l. Airport and we don't have that luxury of time for just a weekend escapade. It... More
