We stayed a week at Padre Burgos Hotel & Resort.
David, Delia and their charming staff succeeded thoroughly in their task to help us feel right at home whilst enjoying our holiday in the sun. The welcoming hotel has a family feel between the owners and the staff and this made the whole stay feel even more comfortable although their style and approach to customer service was very professional. The hotel is kept very clean and tidy at all times.
Breakfast includes a continental breakfast consisting of toast with butter and jam, tea or coffee and fresh fruit or juice, which is often sufficient but if you would require more there is a breakfast menu to choose from too. As for lunch, if you need any, you can just order a sandwich or a burger from their a la carte menu. The evening menu with 3 (big) courses is reviewed and discussed on a daily basis with Delia, who ensured that we always ate very well.
Seafood cooked with Filipino flavors is probably what suited us best.
We did do the whale shark tour, snorkeling at the Limasawa Island around the coral reefs and watching the dolphins. We were also relaxing at the resort’s private pool and beach that was kept very clean to our convenience.
Another pleasant excursion we did was to the small Island Canigao which hosts coral reefs and small fish in shallow water near land. This is an incredibly small island and it only takes half an hour to walk around it. A tip is t not stop where you moor but to go to the opposite side as it´s not so crowded there. We found beautiful coral reefs and fauna hosting a range of small to medium tropical fish in the clear water on the left hand side about 50 meters out from the beach snorkeling. Do bring your own snorkeling gear.
All in all, we would thoroughly like to recommend this as a destination for a relaxing family holiday filled with snorkelling and other water activities!
