Banatayan Island is no doubt a quaint paradise. My recent visit is not too crowded because of the COVID scare. I was lucky enough to have been able to book a room at Marlins because the day we arrived the resort is packed with Police officers on team building. The best thing about the resort are the employees - the guards, the room attendants, the reception, the waitresses are all super nice and attended to our every need. I can’t complain too much about the room because it was adequate for the price we paid. The water heater was not working but we did not ask for it to be fixed because we don’t really need a heater in the middle of summer. The resort is just a 2 minute walk from the town square so you can definitely find a place to eat and everything you ever needed. The beach and ocean front property is stunning. Bantayan Island and Marlins will always have a special place in my heart.

Food was disgusting. I ordered chicken wings. When it was received it was in such bad spoiled and uncooked condition. It was then taken away and recooked. I had diarrhea for days. I ignored it and paid for the order and ate somewhere else. Never again will I eat here. But I will still stay at this resort.

Hello DENNIS SYTWIK thank you for your comment. As per investigation our Chef Cook is willing to replace the said uncooked food!???,you said you ignore the food but,during dish out 3 of our waitresses witness that only bones left on your plate so????? Is your comment the answer of your Filipino girlfriend/wife has a problem with Marlin's staff about her dried Danggit deposit in the kitchen??? Best regards, Marlin's team

My friend and I had a wonderful stay at this resort! The property is beautiful -- the photos don't do it justice! We had a gorgeous view and the beach is the most well kept on the strip in my opinion. We sprung for the ocean-front room and it was definitely worth it :) The location is also SO convenient as we were on the main strip of beach but also around the corner from the restaurant/bar scene. I highly recommend asking the hotel staff to arrange "island hopping," as bopping over to Virgin Island was one of my favourite days of our trip! The staff was very accommodating -- we did not book in advance but they were able to secure rooms for us and made us feel very welcomed! Although I would recommend advanced booking if you are secure with your plans :) The breakfast was also great! The only thing I would say wasn't perfect about this resort was the wifi as it would go in and out, but hey, a super small price to pay for a beautiful resort! And it was nice to be unplugged for the most part. Overall, I would recommend this resort and we had a wonderful time! Thank you, Marlins!

Really recommendable! We stayed there for 6 days. The service was awesome and very lovely. The food was amazing and they made every wish come true... Also the area where the hotel is located was perfect. It’s directly close to the center of the town and just 1 minute by walk where you can find lots of bars and restaurants. That means it’s near by “everything”, but on the other hand not too much in the middle of Santa Fe, because otherwise it would get too noisy with all the karaoke bars around ;) Thanks to everyone for this beautiful stay in the resort! We were very happy and come back again for sure when we are on Bantayan Island. Take care and see you next time ☺️ All the best and happy new year!! Jasmin & Linus
