We went here last 2013 and because of the good place, we went back here to let our parents experience Bantayan Island. There are improvements in terms of structure and still clean. I still like their place since its near MJ Square where food lovers usually went. What I dont like is that the trees were lesser probably to the... More

We stayed last March 2016. Our room is a little bit far from the beach but it's okay. The beachfront is stunning with sandbar! Accommodating staff! Delicious and affordable food! We'll definitely comeback to bantayan island and stayed again on this resort. :)

Service is poor both in lobby/receiving and in dining area. Breakfast should be open by 6am. We wanted to get some hot water but one staff told us kitchen is still closed. Service is very slow. The resort shouldn't be under staff. Dining area was full every morning we were there but only 2 staff serving the guests. I asked... More

Rooms were so so. It felt dirty-- the floor, the towels and the linens. The resort is not well maintained (broken shower near the beach, pathway dirty, etc. ) Staff is not service oriented. For the rate, you get what you pay for. The only thing good about this resort is their location. Don't expect too much so you won't... More

Lots of rave reviews about this place. We were on a budget so we stayed in a fan room. Very average and simple. Not the cleanest sheets or room. Found it a bit pricey with places that rent down the street for far less with air con. Stayed 3 nights. Beach is by far the best on the island. Easy... More

The food there is really expensive... The room sucks, the light was busted the sheet has some tears and it stink. Good part of our stay there was the idea that the movie camp sawi was shot there. All in all good..

Nice beach, good food, friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms and affordable rates. Although, it could be seasonal because there was so many flies at the restaurant. Haven't been here on other months.

Completely underrated. The rooms and cottages are old, yes, and they're made of bamboo and may not be the most updated or trendy of resorts, but I personally think it adds to the charm. This resort is local. It is Cebuano. It does not have the stereotypical plastic-woven outdoor furniture you see in international beach resorts. It's one of a... More

It was a really lovely stay. Relaxing Place to be at if you want to have some time to think about life or whatnot. Food was okay, the water on the sink was not that salty like the one I read on here. Get the suite RM 2 or get the superior RM 3 on the first row. For me... More
