At appearance this is a great located hotel , right in front of the sea and offers good sunsets. Description is accurate - it does have air con, coffee making facilities , TV and close to the beach and even a Pool. The problem is that is hasn't been updated or well maintained for years and is not somewhere I'd... More

I would not recommend any other place to stay when visiting Camiguin other than Secret Cove! They serve the best dishes, from Asian to International cuisine. The place is so quiet and serene, it truly is the perfect place to unwind. It's located in the beachfront and just a 10-minute boat ride to the famous White Island sand bar. But... More

We booked the day before our arrival online. We arrived at the resort at 8 pm on the day of our booking and decided to cancel the booking due to no available additional room. However, the owner still charge us with the supposed to be two nights stay at the resort. How opportunistic and unethical! The owners are very bad.... More

We booked at Secret Cove via Asia Travel. When we arrived at Secret Cove at around 6PM, it turns out that our booking was given to someone else!!! We were very angry because our reservation was paid for already. We called up Asia Travel, and they called up the owner to demand why our hotel reservation was given to someone... More

We enjoyed our stay at Secret Cove. The owners, Tom and Beada, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Having read some of the reviews before we stayed, I was a little leery. However, we thought the accommodation at Secret Cove was a good value. The food was good, but a little oily,... More

I picked Secret Cove after reading the reviews on TA. As the flight from Cebu arrives early in the day, I wasn't expecting to be able to check in on arrival, so was pleased that our room was available for immediate use. The rooms are basic, but offer aircon, cable tv, mini bar (at reasonable prices) and own bathroom (with... More

This was my second time at Secret Cove, WOW most definitely incontravertibly the best food on the island. The rooms are so clean the staff so so attentive and fun, and owners Tom&Beda are always a blast. They have a full service bar in the restaurant, and a mini bar in your room, if you chose that option. I chose... More

We booked a room only a few days left before our trip to Camiguin. I kinda expected resort and room rates to be high as our trip fell on the week of the Lanzones festival. To my surprise, the room that we booked only cost us a little over 1k for a night and the room is already good for... More
