“Bantayan Paradise at a bargain”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

We decided on Marlins for our last minute vacation before school starts. This was a pleasant surprise. The room was very spacious and comfortable. Their food was very good and reasonably priced. Everyone of their
Staff is friendly. Resto service was a little slow as everything is cooked to order. Would definitely return.

We just celebrated our first anniversary with my beau and we chose this place. We simply loved the foods, the sunbeds, the quaint atmosphere, and the kind staffs. We even asked some of their staffs to take photos of us together with my beau because we have no one to ask. They were so kind to do that! When in Bantayan Island, stay at Marlin's Beach. It is accessible, near the town market and clean. You'll never regret and it's worth the price!

I didn't stay here but I used the sunbeds and ate the fish curry.

It was beautiful food. Cheap and a generous portion!

I used the sun loungers and I wasn't harassed to buy something.
The staff are so friendly and it's Infront of the beautiful crystal clear waters!

You know that ahh-this-is-the-life moment you feel when everything has conspired to make it at that point? That's how it is in Marlin's. Hassle-free booking, free pick up and drop off from and to the port, very friendly and accommodating staff, nice room, quiet place. Their staff is always ready with their smiling faces to be at your service. The place is far from the crowd (crowd is at Sugar beach where most resorts are). It's right smack in the beach front, a few steps away from your room and to the inviting waters of Bantayan. Under their beach umbrellas is the perfect spot to chill, relax, and slack off. The resort is also conveniently located near restaurants (try HR and Cou Cou Bar) though their food is good enough too. They've also managed an island hopping tour for us (look for their lifeguard) and arranged for the food we brought to Virgin island. Overall, we didn't want to leave the place. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Beach front rooms are located on the 2nd floor..yes, still facing the beach.

It is wonderful to experience the Beauty of nature. But nature itself is Not enough to cater humans needs. Marlins resort help me to fullfill satisfaction of my holidays in this beautiful Island with its Perfect Location, the good food they offer, the hospitality of the staff and excellent service, the comfortness of the whole area with the mix of European Standard and the Perfect Wide White beach. It was Great! Try marlins resort...

"Love at first sight" a feeling that we never forget when we saw the beach vicinity. The location was very convenient for all those who are new to the island, close by the port. And what made feel excite the most was the "entrance rate", unbelievable cheap/affordable and you could use the facilities offered, take note... It's truly a paradise. Beach with amazing white sand, I love the colorful beach umbrellas, very nice and polite employees, a cool lifeguard and love the restaurant ambiance.. All was perfect, indeed. We will be back on our next vacation in Philippines.

We love this place! the location is perfect, the waters are turquoise, the sand is white, no need to photoshop any picture:) The staff is very friendly, our toddlers were so well taken care off, and there is even a life guard on duty. Rooms are very clean, the food is awesome, what else?
