This was my 2nd visit to Busuanga Island Paradise (BIP).
My first visit was in October last year, and you can read my review dated 5th November 2012.
There is really not much more to my first review that i can add in terms of the glowing report i gave it, but therein lies the best advertisment for the place.
The fact that i went back a 2nd time, only 4 months between visits !
The ambience, serenity, location etc all make it the MOST ideal place to visit if you are looking for a peaceful, quiet, and beautiful spot to relax and enjoy life for a while.
Particularly so for couples !
The ABSOLUTE most memorable part of my 2 stays here have been the staff.
They are ALL quiet, gentle, humble people, who genuinely care for ALL their guests, and they have treated me on both occasions like a king !!
There is nothing they won't do for you, and nothing is too much trouble for them.
If there is a question you have, or something you need, all you need do is speak to any one of them, and they will look after you.
The staff at BIP are always smiling and happy, and will always greet you with a wave and a smile.
(a genuine smile, not the fake kind of smile you get at most other resorts/hotels)
At BIP, you are treated like a very important family member, not a number like at other places.
This kind of vibe is evident the minute you step foot into the place.
I intend going back to BIP as often as i can.
The one thing different that i did do this time around was that i hired a motor bike for the week that i was there.
To see the whole island, a motor bike is the only way to go, and they are really cheap.
I hadn't ridden a motor bike in 30 years, but on day 2 of having the bike, i set out on a massive trip around the whole entire island, which took me 8 hours.
This included stopping at several of the stores in the "Barangay's" (villages) for a cold drink and a smoke.
There is simply no other/better way to see as much of the island than by bike.
I hired my bike from Boyet in Coron Town, and his rates were really good.
Less than $100 for the entire week !
The van driver from BIP will drop you off there.
Boyet has been in operation for 17 years in Coron, and has the best reputation on the island for renting out bikes.
I cannot recommend Busuanga Island Paradise highly enough, and i am quite sure you will be glad you chose it as your place to stay while in Coron.
To all the staff at BIP, "Maraming Salamat". (thank you very much)
Can't wait to get back there !!!!
