Ticao Island Resort is your home away from home. The place is utterly serene, it's a paradise! Resort staff are very warm, friendly and accommodating. The rooms are simple yet relaxing and well-kept. Not to mention the huge serving of meal that can feed 2 or more people. I originally planned to take Advance Open Water Course here, however, due...

Vicky, the GM, did a great job of introducing herself as we arrived and immediately started taking great care of us. Ms. Ling at the restaurant provided us with wonderful service the whole...

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...

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...

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...

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....
