We used a voucher that allowed us to say for 4 nights on the island. It is very beautiful and peaceful there. If you would really love to have an honest to goodness relaxing vacation, this is the perfect place for you. Service was very warm and even if it was an upscale resort, they treat everyone with the same sincerity whether you are a fellow pinoy or a foreigner. Their lechon kawali is to die for, ordered this for most of our stay there and enjoyed all the dishes that was served to us. Our room was spacious and comfortable and had a very nice view of the sea and mountains. My only complaint was that the toilet and bath didn't have a bidet which is unheard of especially in a resort of this caliber, on the other hand I requested for a dipper and it was made readily available upon request, pinoys would totally get me on this. Activities were quite limited but luckily I didn't just go there for that reason alone. They only have a small man-made beach which will disappoint beach lovers but their two gorgeous pools hopefully makes up for it. There was a typhoon that hit Marinduque while we were there but the management really took good care of us. I would definitely go back to this resort in a heartbeat. Will take the plane ride next time around instead of the bus and RORO which took about 12 hours in all.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Bellarocca Island Resort and Spa in Marinduque is distinct from the other upscale, luxury resorts of its category anywhere in the country. All 20 hectares of Bellarocca Island Resort and Spa is mountainous terrain, with its highest point at 114 meters above sea-level. To many seasoned travellers, the images of the picturesque island of Santorini in Greece come to mind upon approaching the resort. Common to both are its rolling terrain and immaculate white buildings perched atop its cliffs: white structures that reflect the sun and contrast with the azure blue sea below. Bellarocca Island Resort and Spa is located on a small mountain island of the southern coast of Marinduque and offers 69 luxurious deluxe suites, casas, terrazas and private villas (with individual Jacuzzis and infinity pools). Guests relax in utmost privacy while enjoying the resort's complete aqua sports facilities, a full spa and wellness facility, a 9-hole golf course and other land-based recreational activities. Guests arrive on the island direct via commercial flights (SEAIR or Zest Air), private helicopters, chartered flights from Manila to Marinduque or onboard an exclusive luxury yacht. ... more less
