With a lot of stress and work baggage on, we headed for Anika Beach Resort straight from Mactan Cebu International Airport for round about 4 hours aircon bus trip plus 1 and half hour of ferry ride to the island. We booked for a - 4day/3n stay and was so ready for an awesome vacation. Though the room was not that big but sure enough convenience for couples or a group of three. I envy the comfort of their beds/mattresses, pillows and the minimalist interior design of the room equipped with a 32" flat screen. We were situated in one of the small villa that uniformly comes with spacious porch and couches where we enjoyed our chitchats and drinking sessions too.
This is not a five star resort yet but we were truly satisfied with the services they gave us during our stay, from the welcoming staff in the concierge who eventually became our friends. And oh! how we love staying and lying down in the bleachers near the shores - A great view of the Bantayan Island port and the scenic moonlight during those tranquil nights. The place is so peaceful and no traces of crowd.
Housekeepers are on site to assist us every time we request for room clean up and staff to answer our queries in touring the island.
Foodies!! - Great line up and one fave of ours is the veggie rice with extra plunge of spices and peppers ( as requested by the boss! :) )
Virgin island experience too is love! A little stretch in the pocket tho as it costs P500 per head for the Island entrance and an honest comment from my buddy when we stepped on the island i'd recall " what so special with this island, why does it cost that much? ".. Lol. And the best answer for that is for you guys to find out and explore. If you don't have your own snorkeling gears, rent it @ P75 rent each. Bring your own food too when you visit Virgin Island.
To wrap it up, it was an awesome experience! Definitely a place worth visiting again! :)
