This place is just beautiful with its long white beach and clear waters. I had fun with unlimited snorkeling and they let use all you need for free. Basically,you can have the beach for yourself since the place can only accomodate few guests. The workers are polite and friendly especially Nancy and Rey. The owner Richard took us to some... More

If you want a one-of-a-kind experience on an island where you are treated with extra care and service, Mangenguey Island is the place to go. For a price, you can relax in an excellent room with top-quality designs and decors. This is a getaway paradise, so don't expect partying hard and noisy crowd.

My husband, daughter & I spent our summer vacation in Mangenguey island and when we arrived on the island, we did not feel welcome like in the other resorts we've been to like being greeted with welcome drinks and a smiling staff.When we arrived in our hut,the first thing they did was make us sign a waiver that the owners...

I recently booked a room after doing extensive research and got a great rate with this hotel. I was very excited and then I got an email stating that they made a "mistake" and couldn't honor the rate. They already took the deposit so it doesn't make sense. I've been in the hotel business for over 10 years. When my... More

Yes is true this lady made a booking on a night that our system had a glitch and our SUITE PRICES WERE LISTED AS PHP 500 pesos instead of USD 500 an OBIOUS MISSTAKE since is impossible to booked a 4 * hotel suite for PHP 500/USD 12 a night !!!!! Now, it maybe standard in the Industry to accept... More

Firstly, the place is truly paradise, the rooms (some real interesting décor) beach and reef are amazing and it was lovely. I know there a lot of poor reviews but the overall rating of this place speaks volumes. However I must agree with the general feeling that the focus on money is really distasteful and borderline petty... I spent over... More

All our prices are clearly stated during the booking and our bar menu was presented on the Welcome Package. Our prices are International Standard; I will... More

The most noteworthy thing about the resort is the food. The evening meals alone were worth the up charge: Paella with huge pieces of seafood, and seasonings that did not overpower; a steak that was probably Kobe, and was the best we had ever had (saying a lot for 60 year old Texans); wonderful desserts; fresh greens for salads. One... More

Basically remember this - when you are on this island you will have to stay till the end of your trip no matter how bad things get. trip back to main land is at least 2-3 hours and you'd have to use the boat of the resort if you were not smart enough to arrange your own transfer separately..

Magenguey is a work of art, lovingly put together by the owners and their crew. The island itself is stunning: white sand beach, turquoise clear water, coral reefs and lush forests. The cottages are beautifully decorated with handmade and personalised items. Every meal is a feast served on the beach or in the open lounge area. Magenguey has everything for... More

My wife and I made Mangenguey part of our May honeymoon in the Philippines, and as the final stop on a brilliant holiday, it was seven wonderful and very peaceful nights in paradise. We stayed in the pink suite of the main cabin - and it was brilliant. The outdoor bathroom/shower was great with a real feeling of being at... More

It was our fourth trip to the Philippines and this time we visited the most beautiful of the 7000 islands that make up the arcipelago. The sea was exquisite with its clean, sparkling water and we swam with the many fish that looked up at us, from the colourful corals. Our 'mimosa' house was located on a white beach and... More
