The first time I visited Sumilon Island, I was taken away! It is a different way to experience the beach because you have the island for yourself as they control the number of people who go there for the day. It doesnt get over-crowded where you have to fight for a spot on the benches and could not even enjoy your swim because of the people.
I have not stayed overnight in the resort because it is too pricey! But day use which is Php 1,500 ($38) on weekdays and Php 2,000 ($50) on weekends is not bad at all. The package is inclusive of use of the facilities -- kayaks, boats, lagoon, infinity pool, jacuzzi, beach and cottages, snorkelling gears and nature walk in the island. They also have pool tables, different board games, beach volleyball and table tennis. It also includes a buffet lunch which is really filling plus they have seafoods - a lot of it! They also serve delicious pastas and sandwiches for lunch (pay separately).
The staff are also friendly and helpful. One of my visits here is for a company team-building and the coordinator who is based in Cebu City was able to arrange all my needs to the island staff as if I talked to them directly.
However though, the beach area of the island is a bit rocky so you can either swim at the other side where the moving sandbar is. But definitely it is still a great way to enjoy your Saturday!
