Let's start with the positives. 1. Very friendly staff 2. Great beach 3. Beautiful surroundings The negatives: 1. Outdated rooms with a leaking sink, a running toilet and the bedroom light that doesn't properly works. Definitely not worth 3000 pesos. 2. The wifi is very very slow. 3. No cellular connection what makes it very difficult to plan the rest...

Visiting some friends and wife's family under the old management but was a good time. I was looking into the work that's been done but can't tell. One thing I'd say is the price is twice the price when I was there 3 years a go. Not sure if it's TripAdvisor price but wow. The view is nice beach is...

The new owners Sophie and Tobias are very hands on. Place and food is great. Its a homey place to relax away from stressful city life without getting hungry. Staff are very friendly. It has a long stretch of fine sand for my son to run around. Price is very reasonable. It is around an hour travel from Dumaguete City....

We were recommeded this resort so decided to check it out. We took to a motorbike and travelled a fair distance on some difficult roads made worse by mud following heavy rain the night before. On arrival it looked great. The beach in a small west (sunset) facing cove looked inviting. We were approached by a member of staff asking...

The place needs further development since it only houses about 7 rooms & most of these rooms were located above or somewhat on a tree top. Disadvantageous to those who have knee problems. 😂😂😂 The location too was a bit of a hideaway. It was enclosed in a somewhat discreet area. The beach theme resembled that of a tiki hut....

Stayed at the resort for almost 3 weeks, did my Padi Open water course from the resort, saw fire dancers on the beach when they had a party, went to the markets and more. Awesome stay - only complaint was someone's the food would take a while but it was the worth the wait!!

Some drive from the airport but when you leave the main road and arrive at Cove Sands Beach Resort you suddenly are standing on one of the nicest beach you can imagine. We stayed unfortunately only one night as we started from this beach the next morning our dive tour.

Scott and his team were friendly, professional and extremely helpful. I stayed at the resort with a group of dive buddies and it is the best macro diving i have ever done. In my opinion, heaps better and with more variety than the much prized Analo. The rooms are very clean and comfortable with good amounts of power points and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Under new ownership now since November 2016 Cove Paradise Beach & Dive Resort (formerly Cove Sands Beach) has undergone many changes and improvements is the perfect vacation haven for the entire family. Located just 40 km drive from the local airport, north of the sleepy town of Siaton, Negros Oriental. Nestled on a secluded cove lies the peaceful and beautiful Cove Sands Beach Resort. We have various native style cottages made of Nipa, Bamboo and local materials, and cottages of conventional build all with aircon which all face the blue waters of the Bohol sea. Each cottage has a large porch to watch the local fishermen sail their small Bangka boats out for the nightly catch. The string of a hundred lights fill the horizon as they cast their nets. Snorkel our scenic cove, or have a dive in our newly renovated pool or just simply unwind and enjoy one of the most beautiful sunsets in Negros. Cove Paradise Beach and Dive Resort is a cozy place to spend a quiet time by the beach. ... more   less
