This place you can really call authentic: it feels like it's the only resort on the island, the cottages are made of bamboo and wood and located on the beach, horses roam free and the beach is cleaned every day using a cart pulled by a Carabo. The staff are very friendly, we also enjoyed the plentiful meals which were... More

Had a wonderful experience recently staying and diving in Ticao with my two young adult children. We had an overnight stay in the resort after taking a boat transfer arranged by the resort from the town of Donsol. En route to Ticao Resort, we stopped at San Miguel Island for two dives at two sites, both great for their healthy... More

There is not a lot going on here. You arrive by boat. There are 8 basic but comfortable beach cabanas, a bar / restaurant and a dive shop. There is no TV, no landline phone, intermittent mobile signal and unreliable wi-fi. But you're not coming here for the wifi! As a place to relax it's great: it's in a peaceful... More

We booked the beach cabana at the Ticao Island Resort from March 7 to 10, 2016. It was a smooth 75- minute drive from Legazpi City to Donsol, where we were dropped off at Miraya restaurant to wait for our boat to Ticao Island. Food and cold drinks are available at the restaurant. There are also toilet and shower facilities.... More

Ticao Island is a place that I had never heard of before contacting Donsol Eco Tour and hearing about the options for places to stay. The website promised horseback riding, firefly tours, and wonderful scuba diving and snorkeling, so I figured that it was going to be a good place. I was wrong-it was wonderful. By far the best resort... More

Had an amazing stay there for 4 nights, did wonderful diving. I won't mention all the positive points, just read other reviews. The points that can be improved: - communication: explain the guests that all activities shall be arranged by Joy aka Frontdesk, don't send them to the diveshop - don't join up divegroups with mutliple diveguides, let them dive...
