“Fantasic Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2012

While vacationing with a friend in Boracay, we decided to take a snorkling tour. Our tour ended up being through "By The Sea Resort", which is a lovely secluded small resort on Tablas Island. The Italian couple who built and run the resort were wonderful, very friendly and extremely hospitable. We were taken by boat out to the snorkling area, for a peaceful and pleasant snorkling experience, complete with drinks and snacks. Following the snorkling we had dinner at the "By the Sea Resort". The food was fabulous, all handmade by the owner, a true multiple course Italian meal (which was a very unexpected find in the Philippines!). We were able to spend the afternoon wondering about the property and found it to be a well appointed, clean and beautiful almost private resort. The bungalows were private and everything is surrounded by beautiful vegitation and ocean views. Anyone looking for a lovely relaxing vacation should come and spend the week. The hospitality, food and accomidations can not be beat!

I was on vacation with my family in the Philippines, Boracay, in January 2012 and celebrated my birthday there with a special tour to a paradise island. This island named "Tablas Island" was a real paradise island, beautiful, silent,"un-touched" but with one surprise and speciality, a italian couple who had built up a small but luxury resort, "By the Sea Resort". We hired a boat at Boracay for a snorkeling trip folowed by dinner at the "By The Sea Resort". The food was wonderful, real italian food, and their hospitality, I have no words.
After the dinner they showed us around and I have to say, that everything was so beautiful, fresh and clean at this small resort. However, this is the place you have to visist for a week of relaxsation and I wormley recommend it for everyone who wants to see something else than a typical tourist place like Boracay.
