Relaxing getaway with great service!
It's a relaxing feel, like you own the place. The food and service was excellent. I loved the clean swimming pool just outside the room.
Once you get there, you will be relieved and relaxed. The owners and employees make you feel at home. The snorkeling is a quality location just outside the resort, easy to swim to. The food was great, available there with little lead time to order. If the road to the resort was better quality after you reach by ferry boat on Olango Island, I would return to Talima for sure!

A pleasant break away in a peaceful environment
Quiet, peaceful, friendly staff
I was looking for a low stress week in the sun. I found it but they don't take credit cards here.

The hotel was quiet and peaceful.
I liked that it is the only hotel on the island, so it was quiet. The view was nice, and a big pool. Secluded, pool, and good food.
I loved my stay at the hotel, the staff was so friendly. Them meals were fresh and so good, and served promptly. The swimming pool was big and nice, and there was so much nature around the hotel You can bike the island, or walk around.

Nice but very secluded
Nice room, close to the ocean, hot water to shower
The Resort is secluded, so no bar or other restaurant is close by. The resort itself is beautiful and nice and the stuff very friendly. My room was clean and the bed comfortable. The mosquito net had some hols, but with some rope they were easily fixed. Unfortunately during my three nights stay we had a tropical storm, so I could only stay in my room and read. Since the restaurant had no walls it was rather uncomfortalbe to eat there, because of the strong wind and the rain.

very nice location
still, location, local
there is no road to olango island. if you want to go there you have to go by boat and you have to be a little patient because they don't sail every 15 minutes. olango island is a quiet place. not much traffic and for sure real heavy traffic. to reach talima beach resort you have to hire a habal habal (motorcycle with driver). the ride will take some 10 minutes and is sometimes bumpy. the resort itself is not big but is clean and looks nice. not a sandy beach, but the swimming pool is good enough. we did some snorkeling (captured a few nemo's) and we all enjoyed our stay. nice place if you want to relax.

Peaceful resort great for diving and snorkelling.
gardens, staff and water sports.
I stayed at Talima Beach villas & Dive Resort with my wife for 3 nights. This resort is in a very secluded area of Olongo Island. We found our to be very peaceful and relaxing. Due to the resorts secluded location the restaurant within the resort is the only real option for dining, and, is a little pricey for what they offer. This is a great hotel for snorkelling and diving with a good dive centre and fish sanctuary on the door step of the resort. Staff are very courteous and helpful. We will stay there again!

very relaxing stay
relaxing environment, sunset viewing, good food
The room was a bit pricey for the room standard but the resort was perfect for relaxation with massage areas, hammocks and a pool. They serve good food but also pricey, between P200-P350 a dish. We rented bikes for P20 an hour. It took around 3 hours to circumnavigate the island. It was easy biking as there are no jeepneys or cars.

Memorable stay at cozy small resort hotel
Ocean front, friendly satffs, accessibility to diving spots
We chose this hotel as a base for diving and were satisfied well with this small resort hotel. Although their own diving shop was closed but nearby local diving shop provided us with a flexible one day diving tour at a reasonable price. Restaurant offers a limited variety of foods but we felt alright in a peaceful ocean view setting and their friendly services. overall our stay at talima was really great.
