“Luxurious playground -- says it all! Truly an amazing vacation!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2011

We had an amazing time here in Misibis. From the moment we were picked-up from the airport till they brought us to the airport, we were really taken good cared of. The staff, our guides and butlers were all very accommodating and friendly. They do their best to accommodate all our requests.
The resort is wonderful, our room was also luxurious (they upgraded our room! ), bed was really comfortable, the bathroom toiletries were also high-end.
As for the food, their ala carte food items including beverages are all priced towards the high-end market. Really very expensive. We did order some ala carte items, and were disappointed with the serving size (small, for the price you pay). So we ended up getting their buffet for lunch & dinner which makes more sense and offer more value for money. I enjoyed their sashimi, seafood grill and steak buffet. Delish!
Overall, they've exceeded my expectations and really made sure to make our stay truly memorable. I highly recommend Misibis Bay resort!

Rooms are big ,beds are great and a/cs work well. Staff are very friendly and there are enough activities to keep the teenage kids busy. You can sit by the pool, the beach or just in your veranda and just veg out and relax. One note though, it is quite expensive.

It's pampering to the max! and i'm not even thinking about the 800-thread sheets, the glorious lagoon right outside your villa, the welcome foot wash as you check in, and the personalized greetings and itinerary listing your very own butler delivers. Really, its the very friendly smiles of the staff and everyone's sincere desire to give you eden -- if only for a few days. Admittedly, its a bit pricey -- but WELL WORTH IT! Definitely, we will do a repeat visit! Thank you Misibis!

We got the package from on line deal, they mentioned that the rooms are "deluxe room". But if you check the website of Misibis, they only have the pictures of the Villas. The deluxe room that they are referring was the new buildings all the way back of the resort, that look like "dorms" or "apartment". So be warned, those who purchased from "DG" vouchers, please DO NOT EXPECT that you are staying at the Villas.

So this (room) review is not for the Villas but for the deluxe rooms at the new buildings. The rooms are small, good for 2 adults and 1 small kid. It's all the way back of the resort but they placed a kiddie play group that young kids can enjoy. If all the rooms are occupied in the building, expect noise!

The ala carte food in the restaurant was a bit overpriced. You don't have any choice but to dine at the one and only restaurant inside the resort. But if you take the regular buffet for approximately P1200/head ++, your kids 7 years and below can eat for free. So we took the lunch and dinner buffet. The ala carte Kiddie meal is already in the rage of P300-400 a serving. Although the Bicol express dish was one of the best that I've tried.

Upon checking in we were given a schedule of activities (water sports, zipline, ATV, snokeling) and booked us ahead, I think this is such a good service.

The customer service was excellent. They kept giving us complimentary bottled water. When I went snorkeling, one staff at the beach look after my 4 year old daughter who refuse to leave her sandcastle.

Must do the Hobie Cat, Snorkeling, Water bike, kayaking, Wind Sailing. All non-motorized activities are FREE! I also like that they are very concerned about children's safety, they make sure that all kids wear lifejackets (they provide) even they just play at their sand. Love it. Unlike most resorts, every single move you make costs something.

We went on a long weekend so there are plenty of guests. Just be sure you are confident to ride and book the ATV and Segway because a girl who rode the ATV had an accident and fell, i saw some bruises in her arms, legs and face! Another guest did the Segway around the resort and got out of balance and fell on her face! Poor girl.

Room Tip: Get their usual package that make u stay at the Villas. Not the Deluxe Room! Then everything else wi...

We've been staying in Misibis Bay last week just for 3 days. The good thing is that we went not during weekend that's why we were almost the only customers on resort.

The service was all about us, they prepared the activities program for us in advance which we enjoyed very much. We tried everything: kayaking, zip lining, ATV to the hill top(WE LOVED IT!), KTV, hobbie cut, aqua bike, snorkeling. We think that three days are enough for this kind of resort since u can try everything and not get bored.

We had the poolside room, that means that we just needed to take one step from balcony and we could already swim. It was very convenient. We always felt like it was out private resort coz we didn't really see a lot of guests around us.

The room was nice and big, but we didn't like that they gave us two single queen size beds and just connected it coz we really expected one king size bed, it wasn't that comfortable for us to sleep in the middle of the edge. Also a lot of things were broken in the room (door lock, hairdrier, ipad dock), so we had to call maintenance and we always had to wait some time for engineer.

We were very disappointed with food, because it wasn't good at all. but the price was expensive. There is only one restaurant on the resort and no any other alternatives.
The breakfast buffet was nice, but lunch/dinner just wasn't good. The buffet for dinner/lunch was not available every time because of not enough guests staying.

The interesting part is that we've seen MARK NELSON and his co-host from SPORT
UNLIMITED! They've been filming new episode of the tv program on the resort and we felt special staying in the same time with them.

I think this resort is good for couples and families with kids, who want to get away for couple of days and not really worry about anything, just enjoy time.

Room Tip: Poolside junior suit was really nice - one step from the swimming pool.

We arrive at Legaspi Airport and were welcomed by the Misibis bay crew right away. Upon boarding the van for an hours trip to the resort, we were handed towels, water and home made cookies-(yummy). Upon arrival at the resort, we were greeted with a local dance number and smiling staff. Check in was a breeze with juice and some cocktail food. The villa was so spacious. The bathroom was extremely large and cound not ask for more. It was better than what i expected. We were given our daily activity schedule and we were so lucky because we got a free 40minute ride with the segway. Love the segway! Thanks to the recreational manager. All their staff were well mannered and well informed. So impress with resort. My daughter enjoyed so much with their kiddie pool and their play area. I would love and definetly go back again.!

Room Tip: Get a room with a day bed!

We stayed here from July 22-24 and were upgraded from a regular room to a junior suite by the lagoon pool. The room was nice and spacious, clean, the bed was VERY comfy and the window seat is actually a twin sized bed. The food was ok, breakfast that was included had a great selection.
The best part about this resort is the staff!! They were all very friendly and accommodating to requests, and if it wasn't possible they'll still try. Everyone was very attentive, always smiling.
The dive sites around the resort wasn't anything special though because the surrounding area is an active fishing ground so even if some of the sites had nice corals, you won't see a lot of fish. The spelunking trip was the highlight of our stay there :)

I will return for another relaxing weekend!!
