Not worthy for 100aud per night staying

Very quite, relax, nice view
I wouldnt recommend people to stay there. Even though i only paid 100AUD for 1 night stay, but they find their own way to get more money from you. First of all, u need to catch their own pump boat to get there(i emailed them few weeks earlier to check the price of return boat trip, they said it's 2000 philippine pesos, but when i have to pay our bill at check out, they charge 2500 instead. I questioned it, they said they use faster boat for us which is not true. I know exactly that boat we took is the normal ordinary one as i had done so many research before i go to that island) Second, there is no where u can catch a taxi from their own wharf to city or airport, they said they can organise for us(well, this is our only option) , the taxi costs 950pesos. The wifi is very bad there, even no signal inside the room, but this point i dont complain, as i know we go there to relax, so doesnt matter without internet. Well, basically we paid the room for 100AUD, but boat return trip and both way taxi fee costs us like 150AUD. So if u think it's worthy to spend 250AUD to stay at this 2 star resort, then u should pay for a visit. But i have to say this is not their employees fault, i know all of them are just earning small income by working for this resort owner. I tipped everyone there who serve us, both taxi drivers, boat drivers...but as a resort owner, they shouldnt charge so expensive for boat trip and taxi

Snorkel is amazing but....

Quiet, snorkel, quiet
I have lived in ph for 5 years so I know many islands, quality of food, hotels, etc based on international and local standards. On a local note. Restaurant staff quite friendly. Good service, but like most Filipino restaurants. You must ask for everything always. Food is fair. Nothing special. And being the only place to eat is fine. Prices are fair on the food. 250 to 350php most dishes. Even drinks overall considering everything is brought in by boat is fair. Soda a tad high 100 php. I purchased a bottle of barcardi rum and we drank it over 4 days they charged 800 php so that was quite fair. The general manager. He was quite informative. I guess I was "lucky" to meet him at the dive shop. Without telling me his position was friendly and inquired as to my stay. Etc. when I replied the snorkel was "bad" based on where he had the day earlier instructed me to go. He told me that is where all guests are told where to go but other areas are much better if you are one who appreciates good snorkel and will respect the coral. Etc. we chatted and he told me of those areas. If we had not had this chat. I would rate the place very low. As there is not much to do there except snorkel swim and scuba. And if no good. Why bother. It was actually very good. Overall room is just average. Great morning sunrise from the balcony daily.

Great stay

Definetely the location and the snorkeling/diving possibilities
My friend and I stayed only a night at the resort. We had some difficulties to approach and leave the island, as we booked the boat with the hotel but they couldn't come to pick us up because of the low tide (morning). I would suggest the tourists not worrying about the booking of the boat, just go to Tonggo Marigondon with a taxi and then ask someone there for the transfer. There are always ppl there who would take u to the resort. The island itsel is amazing the staff incredible happy and always smiling. There was a guy called Ronald, he and his collegues were helpful and waiting for us with cocktails and necklaces. I read before about the high dining prices but actually anywhere near the beaches and resorts in Cebu or Bohol the prices were quite the same. Oh good dinner

Marine Life Up Close

peaceful, friendly staff, clean waters, nature oriented
Generally it was great. The place is perfect for honeymooners who want an island escape. Good for those who love snorkeling. Food a bit pricey and poor wifi signal.

Great. Amazing. Fantastic.

Perfect for the nature lover if you like to snorkel. Quiet location in the marine sanctuary. Beautiful view of the sunrise in the morning. A perfect get away from the city.
The staff was amazing. I was greeted with a welcome drink as soon as I got off the boat. Shown to my room by a very professional woman named Nhazel. All the staff were very courteous and made me feel welcome. I was surprised to learn that Nhazel was not the manager and I never saw who it was. At 6pm I got a call (from Nhazel) if I was going to be dining at the restaurant that evening. I arrived and found my table ready for me. Good food and reasonable priced. I actually made a couple of suggestion to Nhazel that I think she will consider mentioning to the owner. I am fascinated by the tides and being on a sandbar made me think how it would be great to know the high and low tides. There is a site I mentioned to Nhazel that would be good for the guests and the resort. Activities can be planned on low tides such as volleyball as well as high tides for scuba diving or snorkeling. Also traveling to and from the Island would be easier at high tides than low. Saving time for guests and money for the resort. Assuming if the resort saves money it will be in fact cheaper for the guests. The only set back that is minor to the travel is that everything is cash with no VISA or Master Card accepted. Nhazel arranged my taxi for pick-up at Tongga Wharf to the airport which cost only 400peso. Cheap considering he waited for me to get to the mainland when it took longer than expected due to low tides! 2k for the boat ride to and from the island is a little pricey but understandable when they have to go back and forth to pick you up. I would go back for another stay if Nhazel was promoted to Manager. She knows customer service and is the person to see if you need anything to satisfy your needs. Also looking forward to seeing my suggestion about the board with the Sunrise/Sunset and the High/Low tides.
