The Fan Rooms are basic but you get a beautiful beachfront location
I was GRANDPAcking in Bantayan Island for 8 nights. I booked my first night at the Kota Beach Resort in a fan room. The fan room cost me PHP950 / night and it was very basic ... cold water shower, no in-room wifi, no tv, simple furniture ... I rented a scooter and toured the island to see if I could find anything better. I concluded that I could not ... the Kota was the best value for money beachfront resort that I could find and afford. Compared to the rest of S.E.Asia, Philippines accommodation is poor value for money ... full stop; so it isn't just the Kota nor Bantayan Island ... in The Philippines, it is what it is. If you see past the poor value room, you get many positives ... The Kota is on the best beach on the island. Your room is automatically cleaned every 2 days: clean towels, clean linen, binds emptied, etc. It has a nice beachfront restaurant. It has a nice beachfront bar with pool table. It is an easy walk to the central Poblacion shops, restaurants, and bars. All-in-all, if you can see past the disappointment with your fan room, you will get one of the best 'experiences' on Bantayan if you stay at the Kota.

service in terms of restaurant and check-in were quite slow. facilities were just quite enough for those who seek basic needs and just there to enjoy the magnificent beach. food was delicious but it took us about almost 2 hours of waiting before it goes to the table. all of these are passable since you are there to enjoy the sand and the sea.

Great location, value for money
They have a beautiful sandbar in front, and a nice lounging area by the beach. Can spend whole afternoons there. Value for money rooms, and walking distance to the restaurants in Sta. Fe.

Can be improved
For a deluxe room, I expect a safe, a television and a waterkettle/refrigerator in side room. Staff at reception not very smiling and not punctual: she arrive 20 minutes late in morning (her colleagues inform me it is mostly like this), I almost misssed my boat. Overall I give a 'satisfactory note' to Kota Beach resort.

Needs improvement
The resort lacks the basic amenities or facilities that any other resort would have. The restaurant needs to really improve the taste of the food it serves. Service and delivery need to be improved. The staff should not be prevented from chatting or engaging in conversations with the customers because that's how excellent customer service is delivered. Rapport building is the key. The entire time I was there, management acted too strict as if it was running a household. That should not be the case. Management should not be seen dining at the same time as the customers. I saw HOW MUCH management ate more than the customers and showed how they RULED than managed the entire resort.

Location is excellent with a nice sandbar, staff were friendly. The resort just need to improve security because we lost some stuff during our stay as well as other guests.
