A lovely island with a great atmosphere. Easy snorkeling from the beach. Two different spots. On the left beautiful coralls and fishs on the other side of the small boat landing space fish swarms and giant clams. Just amazing. Cottage in front row (left from the reception) just fine, during the day a bit sunny, but the hammock is great.... More

That was by far the best island experience I've ever had. A fantastic getaway with very nice staff. The cottages are very basic but super clean with only salty cold water. When you step outside you have the nicest beach right in front of you. They only offer full board which has different options you can choose from. Good choices... More

The resort is simply fantastic. Located in a tiny wonderful island (Modessa), the resort has simple bungalows just in front of the beach, nothing luxurious but quite basic, which is perfect as everything here is just nature surrounded by an amazing sea. The only negative comment is about the food (which is included in the price as the resort is... More

This is a great spot if you are a couple looking to get away from the main tourist routes. While getting here isn't the most convenient, the resort is helpful and always available by phone if you have trouble finding the dock. White sand beaches stretch out from the front of your bungalow, blue waters wait just ahead for you... More

We decided to stay a week on or honeymoon and we fell in love with Modessa. Communication with the staff prior to our arrival was great and they arranged a ride from the airport to take us to the boat in Roxas. When we arrived we were greeted with a fresh coconut drink and friendly smiles. Our cottage was basic... More

Modessa Island is stunning, white sand beach, hammocks to spend the day and great little beach huts. We spent four nights on Modessa which we mostly enjoyed but felt that if management was improved it could be paradise. There is a large number of staff on the island but most seemed to do nothing but hang around palying pool, table... More

From Roxas we were picked up by the Modessa taxi boat which brings you in 45/60 minutes to the island. Our expectations were high but from the moment we arrived we enjoyed our stay.

Modessa Island Resort are a simple and laid back resort, with very simple and affordable bungalows right on the beach, and if you enjoy snorkling or diving you will be happy here, cause there are a lot of fish to see even in shallow water, and if you go diving you can see big schools of fish around the Island...
