We had a blast at princesa bulakna. It was truly a relaxation time for us. The review from the people who had been there was I should say a mistake, 2008 and today is extremely different from what they have mentioned. It was far than what we have experienced, it was a paradise, a serene moment and not to mention a superb service. No one told us what princesa bulakna was all about it was merely a click on the net and that’s just it! The price was reasonable. A reasonable price for such first class service, it was not a regret at all.
Princesa Bulakna= full of surprises
1. The pick up at Siqujior was entertaining, Kenneth was a magnificent guide. We had a 20 minute history of Siquijor and it was free since it was part of their promo- this was a surprise for us.
2. The pool was enticing! We never thought it was an infinity pool in the middle of the island! The water was clean and what’s best is that its like you are with nature, birds chirping and fresh air.
3. The food delightful, it was sooooo good that you’ll keep asking for more!
4. The room was cozy, it’s like you own pad in the middle of the forest. Very relaxing and best of all very clean.
5. The superb service of the staff, when we arrive at the hotel it was like royalty having reservation from them. They have admirable initiative in which you don’t have to tell them what you needed. They will just surprise you on what you needed.
Two thumbs up for the hospitable KENNETH, polite MERCY, handy NORMAN AND THE ever accommodating MANAGER PHIL. Our birthday wouldn’t be such splendorous if it wasn’t you who accommodate us. Your service was exceptional. This will definitely be a part of our best birthdays.

Stayed here with a friend over a weekend in December 2008. The complimentary van was not at the ferry when we arrived as agreed (approx 10pm) Had to be bombared by tricycle drivers/touts while we waited. It turned up 20-25 minutes late. Then a 45-minute drive over terrible roads to its location in the middle of nowhere.

The cabins are quite old-looking although they are clean. There are lots of wildflowers in the resort which are pretty. The beach is pebbly although it looks like there are efforts for it to be terraformed into a sand beach. The restaurant is SLOW with its service and and the kalamansi juice was the worst I had tasted in the Philippines.

Nice swimming pool with lovely view, and a walk down the beach is relaxing.

Asked if there was any way to hire a scooter to explore the island. None available. Went on their guided tour (which is really the only thing you can do because it's in the middle of nowhere), which consists of a drive around the island stopping at about 4-5 places total. Wanted to see the healers etc. that is supposedly the main attraction of the island but was told that was inland and could not go.

Supper at the restaurant was okay for me, although my dining companion had blue marlin tinola which was delicious.

Overall, problems with the resort:

1. Location (middle of nowhere)
2. You imagine white sand beach but end up with pebbly beach
3. Old cabins
4. Poor service and some very average food at restaurant

Good points:

1. Great for romantic getaway (eg. if you plan on staying in the cabin most of the time!)
2. Really good pool
3. Peaceful and relaxing

Would I recommend it? Not at this stage. It needs some work before I'd go again, and some way for guests to explore the island without going on the boring, overpriced tour.
