Quiet, clean, and comfortable rest place with a view of White Island. There's good food, nice & accommodating staff.
Bring insect repellent, mosquitoes sometimes abound.
Massage services are offered.
Advance order for dinner may be made to cut down waiting time.

The place were honestly nothing special besides the amenities of a restaurant, swimming pool, 2-billiards and a pingpong table. I would say, it's pride would be it's location because White Island is right in front of the resort.

The resort was actually very strict in making a rank deposit to confirm room reservations, so I did. We checked in, slipped my mind that I have partially paid for the room and was asked to pay again in full amount. It was just then that we realized that we made partial payment when the Paras Beach Resort called under the assistance of Sandy. We were greatly dismayed when he said the 2,000.00 deposit cannot be credited back to us or until we use it for our next visit (who knows when we will have a chance to come back). Shouldn't the receptionist find a booking confirmation in their system at least?

But don't get me wrong Camiguin in it's very nature is a very serene nice place. Good for mountain biking, hiking Mt. Hibok-Hibok highly recommended by locals http://tourism-philippines.com/camiguin/ (although we haven't had enough time to trek, a reason to come back!), waterfall and plenty of springs. Sightseeing and recreational activities is the main thing to do in Camiguin. It reminds me of Batanes.

Luna Ristorante

Room Tip: Getting a garden room must be the best option but not at 4,000php/night. Family room can't meet...

I love Camiguin and would love to come back...but NOT at Paras Beach Resort! Service is verrry slow..from setting up an extra bed (which they knew beforehand) to room service to breakfast!! Wouldnt even give extra towels! Considering that they are not cheap, they should be more accommodating! Overcharging for printing requests, you would think they are the only ones with a printer...or the only resort in the whole island! They dont know what word of mouth and goodwill is all about! Wake up before you lose more business!

Based on what the other accommodations in Camiguin Island look like from the outside, it seems the Paras Beach Resort might be the best around. The rooms are quite decent, and the resort provides easy access to a menu of activities and tours through their activities desk.

Unfortunately, the "Beach" in "Paras Beach Resort" is a misnomer as it is not a beachfront property, the nearest beach being a boatride (White Island) or van ride away. The resort does provide, however, a very clean and impressive pool complete with water features.

Their restaurant is good enough but certainly isn't gourmet quality. You'll get bored fast with their menu, so you ought to try walking to a pizza place a hundred meters away by the highway or even taking a motorella to town and trying your luck with the dining options there.

Well, the place is very simple and I would say there is nothing special or that might make the experience special

If you are planning to visit camiguin, please don't ever plan to stay at this hotel. Everything is pricey from rooms to food. And yes i agree to the one who made a comment that this should be named Paras Resort as they don't have beach or shoreline. The only advantage of this hotel is that they are only 10mins away from the White beach. They have good and clean Linens but the rooms are creepy and small.
