“Much better value for your money than in Boracay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

Stayed there from December 30th 2012 until January 4th 2013. Travelled a long time. Sometimes I had no fast internet access. This is the reason why my report about the Phaidon is a little bit delayed.
The resort is an amazing place, friendly staff and good value for your money!
It was my first stay at the Phaidon Beach Resort and I enjoyed it very much. Friendly staff, excellent food, free WiFi,an amazing beach ( 8 km long) which is very good for swimming and for beach walks. I stayed for 5 nights in the Standard Bunghalow.

Boracay is in a day trip distance.I have heard a lot about it. So I went there for a day trip. Maybe it is good for young people who want to party. Boracay is extremly crowded and you' ll get less value for your money as e.g. at the Phaidon Beach Resort.

We came here from a busy and crowded week at Puerto Galera and this is what we had been looking for: A true isolated paradise. You are greeted by the owners and taken for a drink by the beach, beautiful. We stayed in the honeymoon sweet and loved it, it was large and clean with plenty of hot water and a nice private outside seating area. The resort has its own private part of the beach and it is beautiful, the water so clear and the beach very clean. We went diving pretty much everyday and it was fantastic! There were no other groups diving and it is very much laid back and you dive when you want to dive. Our dive instructor Zaka was brilliant, very easy to get on with and very knowledgeable about the underwater life. Both my partner and I loved the diving here, especially the night dives! The staff at Phaidon are fantastic, so helpful and happy, you sometimes feel like you are staying within a family. rather than at a resort. The food is great and plenty of it. However you are asked to order your food a couple of hours before you want it, which we found a bit odd to begin with but you soon get used to it. We were also unaware there was a bar on the roof until our last day, its certainly worth checking out! Just a warning that there are no other bars, eateries, shops or resorts nearby to visit so it really is just the resort, bring all you need. But if thats what you want, which we did, then its perfect. We loved it and hope to return.

At the begining we booked 1 night but finally we stayed 1 week! We were looking for a safe place to relax and we found it. We really enjoyed our stay in Phaidon Beach Resort. We were in Pula bungalow equipped with air cond, air fan, hot water, clean and you can catch wifi also. Staff was very friendly, helpfull, nice,...The food prepared by Amor was delicious... The sunny weather was not with us but it was our best place to relax in philippines.

Phaidon Beach Resort is a beautiful place to visit. If you want to relax, and enjoy a quiet moment with your love ones, the place is the one. I had stayed in the resort with my friend in March 2011. The only problem was that, they let their dalmatian dog to roamed around. In fact, my nephew was bitten by their dog. Yes, they gave some first aid treatment to my nephew but we were disappointed that they did not make any update about their dog after we left the resort which we requested them to do. My nephew undergo a series of rabies vaccine after that incident. I hope the management now cage their dogs... not allowed to roamed around when they have guest coz me and my friend wish to return to Phaidon in the future.

My husband and 3 kids went here for a weekend getaway. We were charged more than a five-star hotel would charge in a room full of insect poop, cobwebs, termite-eaten walls and a broken airconditioner. My kids were excited to go swimming in the pool (though it's just a bit bigger than a tub) because the beach had big waves at the time and the shore is full of rubbish. To our dismay, there was no water in the pool and they said they wouldn't fill it up because we were the only guests there. I said that I asked if there is a pool when I called for booking, but they said, "Ma'am, but you didn't ask if there is water in the pool." Can u believe that?!?

We started our Philippine trip in Iloilo city and took a car to Phaidon beach on our way to Boracay. On the awy we were thinking what have we done as the drive was through very provincial areas with no sign of tourism at all. What a surprise when we turned into to the gate at Phaidon beach!!! Beautiful manicured estate and we were given a great little bungalow to ourselves. We had a totally relaxing time, swimming, eating, snorkelling, relaxing, reading, with not a care in the world and staff who were happy to make each day your best. Beautiful beach for swimming, shaded by palm trees when the sun was too hot plus home cooked meals every time.
We celebrated our wedding anniversary here and had the most magnificent dinner on the beach with a lovely decorated table and seafood aplenty. Bernie lit his coconut bonfire to make
the night even more special and the girls were there right behind us in case we needed anything.
I can't thank Bernie and the rest of the staff enough for a fabulous relaxing time.

Room Tip: Be prepared to shut out the rest of the world to experience a piece of heaven.

If the vision of high-rise hotels crowding the beach at Boracay scares you and you want a beachfront to relax then this is it. Right back of a nice clean beach with young shading coconut palms, this is an ideal location. The best villa has a veranda overlooking the beach and the rest are back a bit The best villa was nice and had a main room far bigger than you could ever use unless you arrive with 30 in your party, but is nice to have the veranda on which to sit. I also had the "deluxe room" (into which I moved because the best villa had been pre-rented for my remaining days), which had no view but had a small walled garden outside with an all glass bathroom wall. When I moved into this room it was decidedly musty, but this cleared out by leaving the window open all afternoon, and the shower drain was excessively slow, but these are my only negatives. Any of the other rooms with AC would probably be OK, but residents of fan-rooms without A/C said that they were oppressively hot, so get a room with A/C. The staff were outstandingly helpful and any clothes left out when the room was cleaned were beautifully folded. Laundry cost little and was returned carefully folded. The restaurant fronted the beach and palms, and outside was a delightful location for meals, which included a lot of local fish, and were very reasonably priced. The included breakfast was fairly minimal, but you could get added items for a $ or two more. The beach is great for swimming. They have a boat for trips, thought sadly the nearby coral is dead, so if you want to take a snorkeling trip take one to a nearby island where they go for diving. There is not much nearby so I and the other guests just whiled away the time with lazy pursuits, conversation and beer (at $1 per bottle). Free wi-fi was available sitting in the shade outside the reception. Overall a delightful place to get away from it all (at about $100 for the best villa and $60 for the least fancy villas with A/C).

Room Tip: The most expensive villa fronts the beach. Avoid the fan rooms unless you don't mind the heat.
