We stayed 2 nights here in the middle of a 2 week boat trip around the area. Rooms were fairly priced and comfortable with good AC. They have a restaurant by the beach which serves breakfast, otherwise the resort is a short walk to some good restaurants in town

It was an awesome experience. Thanks for all the friendly staff at Marlin's Beach Resort. We loved the manangs selling scallops... hella cheap price for a bag of scallops. Enjoyed the the crystal clear water and white sand and company of friends. I would go back here in Bantayan Island in a heartbeat.

Stay for 8 nights, satisfied overall. Clean rooms, friendly staff. Need to improve water pressure and internet speed and quality. Would be nice to build a small kids playground. So not bad choice for the money.

I had little expectation of this place, but I ended up liking it a lot. We had a room on the second floor with a balcony and an ocean view. They are lucky to have built their property on a very nice part of the beach - powdery white sand, quiet, colorful beach, and when you are on the beachfront,...

We arrived with a van waiting us for the pick-up. The resort is clean, staff are very accommodating; from the receptionist to the security guard. They always greet you with a smile. Though they need to improve their food tasting more; still the place is a relaxing and nice to stay. Great for family outing and team building.
