“The beach and ocean in front of Budyong is really fantastic!”
Reviewed 10 February 2011

This time I stayed in a second line large cottage, which is only available when I arrive without booking. The ocean still can be seen from the terrace, but I think beach front cottages (which I stayed in one year ago) are far better with a few hundred peso price difference.

The room was not very clean, yet not well kept, but at least towels and linens were okay.

Maybe it's not due to the resort, but the music being broadcast
all night via loud speakers nearby was really annoying. And music from nearby floating bar is sometimes very loud.

The beach and ocean in front of Budyong is really fantastic, especially sunrise time is must see. But the beach is not private, so we can use it if we don't stay at here. Then my conclusion is this resort is well worth staying at, only if you can get a beach front cottage, otherwise maybe I'd like to stay at somewhere else.

its a nice place to stay because its near to public market wherein you can find cheap and affordable foods unlike the beach restaurant..you can buy fresh caught fish from the fisherman in a nearby resort (5 minutes walk from budyong) for a very affordable price and cooked it outside for a minimal charge to near eatery near the resort..no wifi inside,use a pale to flush the cr.really nice beach with a white sand and blue green water..

If you're accustomed the standards of most accommodations in the Philippines (using a bucket to flush the toilet for #2, cold showers, stained but clean linens, no phone) this place is acceptable. If you're a westerner you might find it a little troublesome and uncomfortable. Unfortunately, our bathroom had a broken shower head holder and broken toilet paper holder, and there was a noisy late night gathering outside at the room next to ours. The AC worked fine and the room seemed clean. The customer service was a little disorganized but solved all of our problems and were gracious enough to let us cancel 2 nights of our reservation when our child got sick. The whole resort was a very short distance from the beach. At one end of the beach there was a wall. I'm not sure why it was there, but otherwise the beach looked nice.

This place is great. its not in the middle of the town but its close enough to all the attractions by foot (2-3min walk). The staff is very friendly and willing to help you with anything. The resorts beach front is one of the best that I have seen. There are no people haggling you for trips or to buy things. the coral reef is about 100m out. Very nice. The only down side is that they do not have internet but just down the street you can find it. well worth the stay.

Reviewed 17 October 2010

I spent a weekend here from a business trip in Cebu City. I got a cottage with a twin bed and a fan for about $10. The cottage was out back, which turned out to be a good thing because there was no breeze at nights and the beachfront cottages turned out to be very hot. There were also daily scheduled brownouts for the whole island so AC use was limited. However, the room itself was weather-worn and what you'd expect for that price. The resort was very quiet and the shore was impressive and kept clean by staff. The resort has a restaurant but a lot of the items on the menu were unavailable. The mercado is only a 5-minute walk, but the prices aren't cheap. Tip: Negotiate the rates especially if it's low season. Bring your creature comforts; there aren't a lot of stores in the area and there's no nightlife.

I enjoyed my stay at Budyong Resort in Bantayan because the staff are all friendly and the rooms are clean. We stayed in an aircon room and it was reasonably priced. The food are good and Budyong is the only resort I know of with a 'sandbar'... We had a quiet dinner at the sandbar. I'll definitely go back and stay at Budyong Resort.
