“A perfect place to unwind”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

Ogtong Cave Resort is about 15 minutes away from the town proper of Sta. Fe in Bantayan Island. The resort is surrounded with lush garden which make it more charming. The place is quiet and clean. It has swimming pools, an underground cabe which you can also swim and a beachfront. We had an awesome stay at Ogtong.

Stayed August 2014

The place is absolutely gorgeous! If you love nature, this hotel does a great way of incorporating nature's beauty into a relaxing stay on the island. The family room we stayed in was nice, spacious and clean.
The hotel has two pools, one in front of the honeymoon suites (4-5 ft.) and one in front of the restaurant ranges from 1 to 9 ft. I found the second pool confusing since the pool floor is not designed as a straight slope but gets deeper in the center. It's strictly for swimmers only and trust me, if you're a nons-swimmer, opt for the other pool.
The cave is stunning, although I recommend wading in when the sun is shining. They haven't installed much lighting inside so as to keep it as natural as possible. Don't wade in barefoot, it's all rocks under there. Their cove/beach area is rocky and you have to walk quite far during low tide in order to get the water up to your waist.
The food was alright, however we were swarmed by bugs while we ate. Wifi is only available in the lobby which gives you more time to appreciate the nature and scenery of the place.

Room Tip: if you're in a family trip, their family rooms are the most convenient (although pricey). a doub...

We stayed at this resort when it was still going through the repair stages following a major typhoon/ hurricane and many of the facilities were unusable. However the 'cottage' accommodation we were allocated (one of the few that had just been brought back into use) was extremely good, in a beautiful location with a wonderful view across the bay a pleasant but small swimming pool, with access directly on to the beach with very clear water although rather on the shallow side for swimming.
Lovely place and would love to go back, if only to see how everything has recovered from the major upset.

Room Tip: As far as we could see, most of the detached cottages had good views, but those nearer the sea, woul...

We spent our new year in Bantayan Island. We look online for some nice places to go in Bantayan and found this place Ogtong cave. So we went there and had lunch, the food is very good. The staffs were very attentive and friendly. Then went swimming in their swimming pool and also in the beach. We also went around the resort and the views are beautiful. The scene of the beach is also nice with very clear water. We spent the whole day at the resort and we really had fun. We plan on going back again but then the typhoon came so we didnt had a chance.

We stayed there for 2 nights. Beautiful place...what you see in the pictures is what you get. Beautiful island unbelievable beach. We stayed in cottage 4. Room was clean but basic. They have 2 swimming pools, a few bars, a few birds and a cave. Excellent brewed coffee but service leaves room for way more. The menu is basic and they are understaffed I believe as our food twice took over 40 minutes to arrive and it wasn't worth the wait. If you eat out then I definitely recommend the place. The rooms have a CD player and no cable so get a few CDs in case you are tired and come back to the resort. Awesome property minus the food. In room massage service wasn't tried as we were on a tight schedule but was very well priced. We payed 6300 for 2 nights as we paid cash thus got a 10% discount.

We would go back for the view for sure!!!

We didn't expect much but this place exceeded our expectations! We stayed at the family room w/ adjoining which has 2 separate rooms (6k overnight which was fair) the only thing i didn't like about their room was the ref, it smelled like jackfruit was stored in there for a month. The place is really clean and the view is really nice. It's just too bad that the shoreline isn't that wide especially if it's high tide, if it's low tide you wouldn't want to swim either because it's full of seaweed. Staff is really friendly, except for the receptionists. I highly recommend this place if you want to just relax and unwind, view is breath taking and the food, it's cheap and tastes good unlike the food at marlin's. we appreciated this place even more when we transferred to marlin's. If we were to come back to bantayan island we'd consider coming back to ogtong cave resort. We did not regret staying here and i'm sure you won't too :)

We booked Octong from the website, the Cab was on time to pick us up from the port. Resort is a beautiful landscape right on the beach. it is wide spread. the biggest USP of the resort is its cave right in the resort. You can swim in the cave & it gives u a great feel. We stayed in the sea view room, rooms are just OK, overly priced. thats the only glitch. Other than that, in Bantayan, this is the best place to stay
