I stayed at Kota Beach almost a year ago with 3 of my friends when we were in Bantayan Island. What we loved about this resort is the beachfront. There are other resorts around the area, and we also tried to explore them (their surroundings at least) during our stay. Most of them, if not all, probably offer even better accommodation options than Kota Beach, but Kota has the better beachfront in that area. I loved the view during sunrise and sunset! It's really peaceful and serene. We woke up a little earlier in the morning and stayed a little bit more outside before twilight because it was what we originally wanted to see before we booked a room here.
Although it's more expensive, we stayed at one of the cottages fronting the beach so that we could take advantage of the view. Aside from that, there was nothing special about it. It was average to say the least. The cottage is actually a mid-sized room with a bathroom plus a small porch outside where you can chill and spend lazy afternoons reading a book or drinking coffee if it's your kind of thing. Aside from the beachfront, the free round-trip port transfers pretty much sealed the deal. The port is not too far however, so you may take a tricycle or "potpot" for example. Most of the beach resorts here offer free airport transfers by the way, so you have a lot of options. In Kota, there are also other accommodation types aside from the cottages, so you can choose the type that would fit your needs and budget.
At that time, I'm not sure if they already offered free Wi-Fi, but they did offer the basic amenities like towels and toiletries. The hotel also has a restaurant near the lobby. The prices are reasonable and the food palatable, but there are a few restaurants and bars outside the resort (within walking distance) where you can dine. They offer more options, and you'll be able to see a lot of tourists in that area also. The resort has bikes for rent for those who would like to explore the place more. It was in my bucket list, but we weren't able to do that because we chose to go island hopping and snorkeling for the most part. Nevertheless, there's a lot to see. Although small, the island is beautiful. I would like to go back some time in the future. :)
