This place has a two edged sword.”
Food was expensive an often very little choice. Chicken fried rice cup full 295 pesos, small plate french fries 200. Most other meals 360 / 340. Surrounded by seas full of fish but only got fish 5 days out of 14. Even though asked every day. No electricity except between 6pm an 11pm, so impossible to sleep in the heat. Fridges don’t work without electricity so chicken an pork not an option as I was I’ll with it. Having said all that it was a gem in other ways. Quiet, peaceful, unspoilt , lots wildlife, good staff , 3/4 hour from main land. No roads to go fisherman’s village a hike up to top of the island through the jungle an climb over rocks an through other bays. Come back on a fishing boat. Enjoyable for few days but not up to long stays as nowhere else to drink or eat. It’s the only place to stay on the island so they have the monopoly.

The resort is tranquil quiet relaxing an very quiet. Not so easy to swim as very rocky .”
Only place to swim properly is were the boat is moored. Only place to eat an drink is at this resort an it’s very limited an pricey. Stays of couple of nights no problem but we stayed 14 nights an the menu was very limited an very often your choice was not available. Electricity was only on between 6/11 pm so impossible to sleep properly as so hot. Silly as fans were useless. WiFi was awful as no electricity an only limited use at reception area as mostly it wasn’t connected up. Small beer 80/85 chicken fried rice 290 an at 66 pesos to the £ was expensive. Would still say fantastic holiday but needs wake up call or think it willclose down like all the others on this island. We were the only guests for 10/14 nights. Great for us but not for business. Think more choice in food / fish / electricity on all night from 6 an prices more reasonable an could do well. At present won’t attract the young backpackers as to expensive for them an most people want fan on at night

Absolute paradise ”
Beautiful if basic beach huts on a beautiful beach with great Philippino food (cooked as spicy as you like which was great). We could have stayed for ever swimming with turtles eagle rays on the housd reef. We swam around the island for hours and saw so many fish. It really was amazing place we actually found paradise. Staff were wonderful it was like being at home thanks again xx.

Perfect for relaxing! ”
We (3 Person) stayed in the blue cove for 5 nights, because the Place is beautiful and the people who are working there are really lovely! If you want to go there you've to take a boat from Port Barton (max.1200p.B 30min). When you arrived they'll give you a coconut as a welcome drink. :) The manager ist well organised and helps you to make your stay unforgettable-just ask! You can rent a Kajak or snorkelling equipment for free! The island offers a lot of activities. For example: Snorkelling, fishing, hiking, volleyball, billiard and if you want to go somewhere else they can bring you to different islands. The bungalows are clean, beds are comfortable and with mosquito net. The food was good and if you want something special they are going to buy it from the town for you! Highly recommended!

It's great to be on an island”
Amazing island hopping, 3 huge turtles!! Place is really nice! Food is good, 1liter bottle of water is 90 pesos though! Expensive water! A nice meal is between 250 and 350 pesos, the same for breakfast. The staff helped with everything but not so communicative, try to push them a little, they actually want to practice. :) Juna the manager is really attentive and nice. Boat ride from and to port Barton should be 1200 pesos per boat.

Beautiful Spot - Could have more sources of entertainment.”
We stayed at Blue Cove for 3 nights. We had a great time and the location is beautiful! We found, however, by the last day that we had sort of exhausted all of the things to do. The food is a little pricier because everything has to be boated in and the boat ride to and from the island does add some cost. David and Angel, the managers, were great and very attentive, however the rooms were not cleaned or restocked during our stay. Food was delicious.

Ideally situated, nice staff, good food
We had a great stay, the beach is quiet and beautiful, the staff very nice and helpful, they took us on a hike through the island and organised boat and fishing trips, and even a goodbye bonfire the night before we left! Angel cooked us very appetizing meals with vegan options. The archipelago is paradise: desert islands, clear green waters, silence... Ideal place to rest and live a wonderful experience in close contact with nature. Plenty of time for books and snorkeling.

Basic but Beautiful”
Quiet Location, Beautiful Scenery
The location of this resort is beautiful. The cabins are very basic with old deocor and hard, less than comfortable bed and pillows. Though we paid for an a/c hut the electricity only stays on for a few hours at night, so it's not really worth it. For a quiet few days away this is a very nice resort, take a few books as there's not much to do here. The staff were very helpful and took us on a little hike of the island.

Blue Cove Resort, don't even consider”
Location, gardens and waterway
Upon arrival, we were shown to our 'cottage'. Whilst quaint and tidy from the outside, these 'traditional' nippa style huts, are not lined on the inside. Indeed, they are quiet small and do not have enough windows for ventilation. We asked to be upgraded and were told we could have lunch while waiting for our upgraded cottage/hut. Lunch took over an hour to be served. The 'super' burger I got, was nothing more than 2 deep fried meat patties, some chips, 2 eggs served over rice. After transferring to our upgraded cottage, it took us no longer than 5 minutes to get on our pc to look elsewhere for accommodation. The cottage again, was not lined, the smell from the bed sheets or mosquito net reminded me of a hospital, not enough windows for ventilation as it was very hot inside, a basic foam mattress on a bamboo bed and the toilet seat was completely broken away from the pan. I could barely recommend this 'resort' to a backpacker, as there is better accommodation in Port Barton for similar money. It is a shame, the location is ideal, but the rooms/cottages are in need of updating inside.

Terrible experience. The rats kept us and other guests awake. The service by the staff was terrible and so was the food! Especially warning for all sandflies that destroyed it all. Choose another beach, there is several with better places to stay and less sandflies,

Cheep rooms.
Boring, nothing to do. The beach was nice but you couldn't really swim there because of the seabed. The staff did not pay attention to the guests they cared more about being online. The wifi was extremely slow despite that the staff did use it. They should know that the more users online the slowler the wifi gets. But they did'nt care about it.

Your own tropical island”
Location, friendly staff, restaurant
We spend three nights at Blue Cove Tropical Island and had a nice time. The rooms are very basic (could maybe use some extra storage space), the temperature of the shower is one temperature fits all which is ok during warm days but can be a bit chilly on colder days. The food they offer is good, it's a great place for snorkelling and we can recommend the island hopping tour. Beware of the currents when you want to go paddling with the small kayak.

It was good, but a bit boring. There was plenty of free time and not so many tourists attractions. Next time would prefer to stay at Port Barton and just take boat trip for all day ;)
