That was by far the best island experience I've ever had. A fantastic getaway with very nice staff. The cottages are very basic but super clean with only salty cold water. When you step outside you have the nicest beach right in front of you. They only offer full board which has different options you can choose from. Good choices... More

We are a couple that enjoyed the island in our own way, while she readed a book under the palms or the sun on the beach in front of our cottage, i dived with Aldrin the masterdive and two costumers more. We enjoyed together the snorkelling in the reef and when my girlfriend was tired i continued snorkelling for a... More

The resort is simply fantastic. Located in a tiny wonderful island (Modessa), the resort has simple bungalows just in front of the beach, nothing luxurious but quite basic, which is perfect as everything here is just nature surrounded by an amazing sea. The only negative comment is about the food (which is included in the price as the resort is... More

This is a great spot if you are a couple looking to get away from the main tourist routes. While getting here isn't the most convenient, the resort is helpful and always available by phone if you have trouble finding the dock. White sand beaches stretch out from the front of your bungalow, blue waters wait just ahead for you... More

We decided to stay a week on or honeymoon and we fell in love with Modessa. Communication with the staff prior to our arrival was great and they arranged a ride from the airport to take us to the boat in Roxas. When we arrived we were greeted with a fresh coconut drink and friendly smiles. Our cottage was basic... More

Modessa Island is stunning, white sand beach, hammocks to spend the day and great little beach huts. We spent four nights on Modessa which we mostly enjoyed but felt that if management was improved it could be paradise. There is a large number of staff on the island but most seemed to do nothing but hang around palying pool, table... More

From Roxas we were picked up by the Modessa taxi boat which brings you in 45/60 minutes to the island. Our expectations were high but from the moment we arrived we enjoyed our stay. I have been to a lot of places where they said there were white sand beaches which weren't but the beaches around Modessa are really white... More

Modessa Island Resort are a simple and laid back resort, with very simple and affordable bungalows right on the beach, and if you enjoy snorkling or diving you will be happy here, cause there are a lot of fish to see even in shallow water, and if you go diving you can see big schools of fish around the Island...

Exceptional service, friendly and happy staff, basic facilities which are ideal for the island escape, pool table, darts, volleyball, basketball, ping pong, a library, board games - never bored! Rentals for non motorised water sports, fabulous marine life! Only downside for me was the wifi not working very well in the evening when it is most likely needed. Good food,... More
