I can agree with some reviews that the place "needs work". It's location is utterly fantastic for the "experience" of Caramoan....with wooded hills extending down to the beaches with outstanding views. Thus.... it is not easy to get materials there for maintaining or upgrading the place (let alone finding skilled labor). That said....I splurged and bought my son (from the U.S) 3 days here and we had the time of our lives. Escape and adventure and relaxation. We would do it again....and again. We just hope that management sees the need to keep the place upgraded.

Room tip: We looked at the best rooms (tour). The Hillside is the best. Rooms 201, 202, 204, 208

Our family of 11 people ages 5 - 50 something stayed at Tugawe in early July 2019. Here is our take:

1. Caramoan is breathtakingly beautiful. If you can visit the area, do it. Tugawe itself is reachable only by boat, whether from Virac (Codon Port) or Naga area (Paniman and Talisay ports).
2. The friendliness of staff at Tugawe is outstanding. If you had any problems or requests, they are very attentive and try their best to remedy any issues. They are also very accommodating in helping you work out your best options in terms of food plans. We initially thought we would be able to eat elsewhere but the location of Tugawe is remote, so the hotel is the only place you can really eat.
3. We liked the food. It's local, delicious and plentiful.
4. The layout of the rooms is great -- each room is basically it's own little cabana. We stayed in the Hillside cabanas. If you have anyone with mobility issues, this is not the place for you. As other reviews mention, there is a lot of walking up and down the hillside to get to cabanas, restaurant, pool and beach.
5. The beach is very pretty and there were plenty of lounge chairs available; however, I am not sure what it is like during the high season. The water was clear and warm with plenty of beautiful fish and coral to explore, which we did on a daily basis. We even spotted sea turtles!
6. The rooms themselves were adequate. The a/c worked well. The biggest negative is that they all are in need of repair and updating -- i.e., some showers did not work well, doors were broken, sinks and showers had slow drains, the doors going into and out of rooms were tricky, if not outright broken. In short, the accommodations were ok lang. Not what we were expecting of a resort that far outprices itself from any other hotel/resort in the area.
7. Rough seas outside the cove prevented us from going on the offered snorkeling excursion, so we were particularly happy that the cove itself had plenty of sea life around for us to enjoy.
8. We enjoyed the evening boat ride to view the bioluminescence. We saw stars below and shooting stars in the evening sky. When we returned to shore, we were met by trees lit by sparkling lightening bugs. Magical.

We enjoyed our stay at the resort. It does need some updating and repair, which is why I gave it an average rating. In terms of value, it was ok. Sometimes the staff at the beach weren't so very helpful, but our butler was outstanding. People were so very friendly and the area itself is beautiful and worth the time and effort to visit.

Tugawe Cove Resort is definitely beautiful and relaxing place to visit. The beaches were so beautiful with their fine white sand and clear blue waters. The employees at the resort were super helpful and nice. Special thanks to our personal attendant/butler, Kuya Hency, for being so accomodating with all our needs. He made our experience stress free. Surely we will be coming back to this awesome place

For those that are traveling to Bicol! Definitely visit this place! Super relaxing and great for big families even with little kids. Island hopping is the highlight of this trip because they have amazing islands with white fine sands. For activities, definitely try snorkeling and plankton watching. The food is also amazing, I recommend ordering their fish sinagang. The one that definitely made this trip amazing is the fact that we had an awesome personal attendant/butler Kuya Hency. He will greet you with his bright smile and he also has great knowledge about the different islands. His great attention to detail with all our needs and schedules made our vacation stress free! Surely, we will be visiting again.

Despite the strong winds, rain, and over cast weather that would have made our trip gloomy, our personal butler JJ made our stay unforgettable. He is the type of person who paid attention to every detail so that you wouldn't need to ask because it's already been done.

The beach area has most of the stuff one would need to have fun like SUPs, kayaks, beach volleyball nets, limbo racks, lounge chairs, etc.

The food was alright. I especially loved the Laing and the Bicol Express dishes as they were locally made with love and topped with boneless dilis for extra crunch.

We stayed at one of the rooms by the lake and it was quite spacious and comfortable. The shower needs some work though because the hot water was inconsistent.

Overall, our stay was excellent and would love to return one day for the warm Tugawe Cove experience.
