an amazing escape from the hustle and bustle

the hospitality, the environment, the location

It is a lovely resort if you are looking for a quiet place, beautiful sea view, and laid back natural atmosphere. I stayed here for one night with my family in the villa. The villa was very comfortable, but we like the balcony and the yard more. There are not many fancy facilities, but we were never bored, Besides swimming and wandering in the yard, we looked for some sea life at the shore, lay back on the hammock, and also rent a bike for an enjoyable ride to the town and the bird conservation. At night, we saw a starry night above us and fireflies in the yard. The staff there were amazingly helpful and friendly. We arrived at Mactan on a terrible typhoon night. The next morning we headed for the Hilton pier for a private boat pick-up service. When we arrived there, the owner had been there waiting for us. He asked me if I got his mail. I, of course not, was on the plane all day. Then, he explained there was a terrible typhoon and he recommended staying in Mactan instead of his resort for safety. However, he didn't get my reply, so he came personally to meet us at the pier, which was very thoughtful and responsible. And fortunately, the day we departed for the resort was a beautiful sunny day. So, he arranged a big boat for us immediately. Moreover, the next morning we rent bikes from the resort. One of the bikes was too high for my kids. The staff tried every means to lower the rusty bike's seat with patience. When we returned from our ride, the lady in charge generously offered the same villa for us to rest till 3:00 even after we had checked out in the morning. If there is anything not that satisfying, that would be the food. The hot dishes there are OK. But for the breakfast at that high price, we would expect a freshly-made coffee, and fresh fruit juice, but we were served with a hot bottle of water, several bags of instant coffee and tea powder, and a jar of orange-flavored chemical liquid. However, except the breakfast, I recommend the resort.

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.

Is what it is...

Very helpful staff.

There is not TV, phone or internet at this hotel. The rooms are nice but not fab. The AC works and the pool is nice. The grounds are beautiful and the view is amazing. There is no beach. But if you are looking to snorkel or to dive it will work for you. I don't dive but one man who came back from a dive was hard pressed to describe the beauty he encountered while diving. There is nothing amazing about this island it is quiet and very provincial. If you are looking for a party this is not the place for you. But I loved it. I loved driving on the tricycle and instead of having the children beg from us- they all called out, "Hello". My 6 year old son would say, "Mom we're coming up to the Hello place". My son loved the pool and enjoyed the grounds. The staff were beyond accommodating. It was rustic but nice break from the crazy world for a time.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Make it out the floating restaurants. They were a pretty cool experience.

Quaint island but disappointing resort

Location was good and close enough from Mactan island if you wanted to get away from a bustling city or crowded beach.

I knew it was a small resort and I expected no more than warm hospitality as if I were visiting someone's home for the weekend. It took forever to get food orders ready and all 15 or so guests were famished by the time the buffet was set-up past 7PM. I don;t mind spending P350 for a buffet but I do expect that the dishes would be replenished. Maybe they should avoid calling it a buffet and just call it a set dinner. Rooms were tiny and the A/C sounded like it was going to explode each time the power fluxed. Guests couldn't even swin in the evening because there wasn't enough power to light the pool area. The staff were as polite and accommodating as they could be and I was grateful for that.
Hotel Feature Tip: Bring your own linens - a couple of yards of gina cloth (same fabric as the curtains) do not make for a good blanket. The rooms were clean and staff were attentive. You can't bring in your own food so if you are picky about what you eat, don't stay the night.

한적하지만 다시 가고 싶진 않은곳

조용하다

세부에 살아서 좀 가까운곳으로 가려고 이곳을 선택했는데 한국에서 여행오는 사람이면 정말 비추네요. 전압이 일정하지 않아 불이 계속 왔다 갔다하고 방두개에 거실 있는 방 섰는데 불이 넘 깜깜해서 거실에서 있을수가 없을 정도 ㅜㅜ. 방값에 비해 너무 시설이 떨어짐.. 밤새 물도 안나오고 아침 아홉시쯤 얘기하니 모터 틀어 주네요. 음식가격은 비싼 편이고 퀄리티는 많이 떨어지는편이예요. 일상에서 탈출로 간곳이지 두번 다신 가고 싶진 않은곳. 한국에서 특히 여행오는 사람이면 그냥 세부에 있는 리조트 찾는게 나을듯.
Hotel Feature Tip: 일단 들어가면 나가기가 힘드니 애들 있으면 먹을것을 준비 해가야함.

缩小版的精致度假村

有私家海滩,客人少,环境如图片
7.7
千万不要住最便宜的经济房,空调制冷差,非常热,要带上手电筒酒店会经常停电,虽然每次只是几分钟。酒店只有几个房间,有的房间还不错,可以在酒店吃饭,价钱并不会贵的离谱,员工非常热情。缺点交通不方便去哪都得叫摩托车,晚上只能呆在酒店。我住的2晚,就只有我一个客人。
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: 到看鸟的公园,坐摩托车为150peso,从鸟公园到码头为120peso,酒店只收现金
