We stayed here for 2 nights in april. It was about a 45min boat ride from cebu to resort and 1hr back(rougher water going back). Once we arrived we were greeted with shell necklaces by the staff. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Staff carried our bags to our room and informed us where restraunt and rental items were located.... More

This was the smallest island we've ever stayed in. It's only about 1 hectare so having the cottages on stilts allowed for several cottages without compromising space. We absolutely loved our stay there! It was about 1 hour from Mactan Island by banka. The staff was very accommodating and the manager was great. We went scuba diving in the marine... More

The Website is dry and lack of new pictures and the place is far from main land mactan where the the airport is located but the island is so beautiful and the staff are very nice. The Resort Manager is so smart and very knowledgeable. He even help his staff during the busy day. The resort is crowded during lunch... More

We went there just for one night and went to another island before so that we were only there when there was no day guest. So close to mactan and far from everything, we were almost the only one to sleep there. Great snorkeling, very photogenic jetty and cool balcony. Having said that the accommodation is totally basic and the... More

Firstly, if you are looking for exciting nightlife, then this resort is NOT for you. The island it is on is tiny - about the size of a football pitch - but if you like relaxing and just lazing around, this place is great for a few days. And with no wifi or mobile phone coverage, you are guaranteed peace... More

my family and i stayed there for 1 night. you'd be impressed at first glance. fish and marine life scattered on the sea floor, amazing! but after a while, we got bored, especially the kids. they don't have electricity which is understandable becoz nalusuan is a small island, 30-45 minutes away from the mainland. however, they do have a generator...

This tiny and just gorgeous island can be walked across in less than 2 minutes. The food is great, the employees are so friendly and professional. Our rooms were # 14 and 15. They are located right above the water wih an incredible view! At night we could hear and see the fish swimming and feeding below our balcony. The... More

couldn't help but be underwhelmed when the boat pulled up to the jetty (the outrageously expensive boat, at that)... rooms were rustic, but nice,overpriced and had a bad ant problem. the balcony had a great view but just wasnt that comfortable and pretty crammed. indifferent staff and awful overpriced food, combined with hundreds of day trippers flooding the island every...

Thanks for a great week to Raymond and Michael Mendoza for helping us set up a nice few days away from Manila. Make sure you dive the area and ask for the sea food. Great place to relax and get back to nature.

We just recently spent our vacation there; it was our last stop in our itinerary of 11 day vacation in Cebu/Bohol. Booking: It was through their website. But there was an issue when they informed me that there was no room available for the dates I selected though I got an email that stated i successfully reserved the room. They... More
