A place where everybody can actually rest. Marlin's Beach Resort has a nice view of the sand bar from the resort , tasty foods that even kids will enjoy, rooms have enough space for your kids to run and play and it is perfectly clean. Most of all, staffs here are very accommodating. Thank you Marlin's Beach Resort for our... More

We booked a beach front room, when we arrived we were put on the 1st floor away from the beach as the guests had extended in the room we were booked in for. Not a good service. Room was big and recently refurbished, but to a very low standard and it not worth the money per night. Caution when walking... More

I am working in food and beverage for almost 10 years so i know what a good food is. Kudos to the chef. The only cons is that, it will take your... More

The rooms are functional and good, could be a little cheaper though. Restaurant is nothing fancy, but since there are many others in wlaking distance, its is ok. The breakfast buffet is ok. Beach access nice and clean. Quiet rooms

We didn't have a reservation and Marlin was the only one that had really spacious rooms and clean bathrooms. The A/C was blasting, wifi was fast. We stayed in Marlin coz we went to Virgin Island. From what I saw there was not a lot of beach front. The property was clean and pretty. We wanted to stay at Anika... More

We booked a room at this resort just as the ferry was leaving Hagnaya Port and this gave the resort staff 1 hours notice of our arrival, but this did not faze them at all. They welcomed us with the normal broad Filipino smile and showed us our room. The room itself was not the most modern but was clean... More

The location (beach front) is impressive. BUT The 350 BUFFET breakfast rate is too expensive for an unimpressive set up and foods you have. Plus the flies that have lost our appetite. You must also have a 24/7 front desk operation just like other resorts so that the guests' needs and concerns will be attended to immediately.

A few years we'd experience and witnessed during this season, there are so many flies came out.But not only on this resort even in other restos near by.We might be have a 24/7 front desk operation but infrequent. More

We were pleased to be picked up by the hotels free shuttle from the wharf. A nice touch. Staff were very attentive, with great service. Marlins is a nice quiet resort, right on the beach. Special thanks to the security guard, who was the first to welcome us. Meals are served in an open-air section right on the sand. We... More
