Sunbloom resort (6 to 7-hour bus ride from Caloocan bus terminal), seems to be the nearest resort to Potipot Island. It also seems to have the most perfect view of the island. Beach front’s very clean and well-maintained compared to the other resorts. We had a relaxing stay at Sunbloom. It's quiet and relaxing and I guess we were the...

After our overnight in Potipot we headed directly to Sunbloom Resort (you can ask your bangkero to direct you there). When we reached the place we were early and unfortunately there are still guests in our reserved room so we cannot check in and had to wait till 1pm. Hehe. But we did not waste our time waiting because they...

This resort is more geared towards backpackers and does not even have a restaurant. It is only ideal of you need a place to stay to change clothes, take a shower and take a short nap. The location is great in terms of distance to Potipot Island but that's just about it

We encourage feedback on the experiences of our guests but they are generally from guests who have actually stayed with us. A check of our records indicates this reviewer appeared without a reservation during our busiest period and was, unfortunately not able to secure a room for the nights requested. We would encourage this reviewer to return to Sunbloom and...

You can leave your things in the reception area and kill...
