                Do not stay here”
                Please, for your own sake, stay at a different hotel. The management is terrible, the staff is poorly trained, and the facilities, while beautiful, do not function properly. The hotel was damaged in a storm and has not been properly repaired. This is simply not a good hotel at half the price. When taking into consideration the prices it borders on the ridiculous.

                Huma island is a rip off... short of a scam”
                Pros: 1. Going there is convenient with Air Juan seaplane, avoiding the hustle of airports and land travel. 2. Staff are friendly, no doubt. 3. Water Villas are ok. Cons: 1. There’s nothing else to do but swim on the beach. 2. Only 1 restaurant is open with a very limited menu, and very expensive. 1k for a cheeseburger, 300 for a bottle of beer, 150 for a coke in can, 750 for a shawarma. And here’s nothin special on it. Taste is so so. McDonald’s cheeseburger is way way better. 3. Spa service is way off the grid! 4,500 pesos per hour of traditional massage. I mean, it’s only 300 per hour home service anywhere in the Manila or nearby provinces. Make it 4 times in a resort might be acceptable, but not 4,500 per hour. 4. There’s practically no guests at the peak of summer on a weekend. We were just 3 couples booked in the whole island. 5. The place is not children or elderly friendly. No railings on walkways. Want a nice vacation? STAY AWAY FROM HUMA ISLAND!

                I took my wife on a date to this place, but we got food poisoning - it was so bad, we could not sleep all night, throwing up and losing our energy for days. The cost of this place is over the top as well. Every thing is old even though everything looks new on the pictures.

                Ridiculously overpriced for a very poor service”
                The first impression is great. A friendly welcome with guitar, and fresh coconut. We paid the Peak season surcharge. We are taken to our rooms which are very spacious and nice. The hotel seems empty and we are told that there are only 33 pax! The hotel has over 300 rooms so why the Surcharge? The rest was a disaster. - The jacuzzi was leaking and temperature rose only from 27 to 31°C in 4 hours. - The jet-ski was out of order, - We borrowed 2 kayaks and after 15 mn, one of them sank. - The arrows of the archery centre were bent - We order pizzas and wait 30 mn to be told there are none. It took them 1 hour to serve us 2 lousy cheese burgers - We were never served in less than 45 mn and only half the dishes on the very limited menu were available. - The food quality is substandard - tastes like cheap frozen food. The staff is friendly but incompetent. The hotel manager didn't bother to respond when we complained. Other customers were as frustrated as us. Resort to be avoided.

                Pirate Island - Stay Away!”
                If you have booked this hotel, please cancel now. If you are considering to book it, don't. There is not enough space to describe all the bad things about this hotel, so I will just outline the main ones: 1. Food quality is bad. It is never warm, does not look appealing and the quality is under big question (we and some other guests during our stay experienced food poisoning - not fun at all) 2. The hotel is run out, furniture and jacuzzi are falling apart. 3. Service is very poor - there is no one really to take care of even simple requests. The stuff is small and not professional. For example, when we checked in neither TV nor Wi Fi were set up in our room. 4. Entertainment on the island is quite ridiculous. In particular, evening music that is performed by such poor musicians that we had to escape our dinner as soon as possible (you just cannot listen to it - the girl simply does not know how to sing and does not know English which she is trying to sing in). Overall, stay away.

                We stayed there for a week. First the good things about it. + The island and also the sea are beautiful and good for snorkeling or diving + The villas are mostly clean and really big +The employes are very friendly The negative - The prices for the meals which are served are much to high, the size and the quality of the sam meals changed every day - The hole resort should be renovated things work but everything looks damaged - Service has no idea about serving and forgot always something - Meals and beverages were not available for many days - Not sure what management is doing there they are more or less just sitting around and smoke - Jaccuzi has not work for 3 days after a few calls it was fixed + we got a massage from the manager because of that - Transport was not organised for back to the airport happily we got someone which drove us there for payment that we get our flight in time. I can not recommend it, save your money!

                We had our honeymoon at Huma last January 2017 and overall it was "okay", the room was amazing because of the view and your own Jacuzzi right outside your balcony. The Food was alright, nothing great and you don't really have a choice as it's a private island means getting out of the island would be a hassle. The island hopping options are minimal too, the don't focus on the main popular tourist attractions.Our stay was nice but I would not come back again..

                At the time of our stay July 24, 2017 there is only one restaurant in the island that serve their free breakfast. I waited 45 minutes for my food to arrive - very long wait although there are only us & other group [6 people] in the restaurant at that time. It's everyday and not just this incident and as what other had reported in the past review. Food also is limited of choice some on the menu is not available. For this price [$400/day] of resort its unacceptable! Why not change your breakfast to BUFFET!

                One great experience !”
                Dreaming of going to Maldives got us to Huma instead. Considering the cost for us Filipinos, I can truly say that it is not practical to spend 20K plus for a night but we understand why they have to charge that much. Here are the reasons based on our experience: 1) They will have to pay for the van for the RT Airport transfer . 2) They will have to pay for the RT Boat transfer 3) considering its an island resort, all of the supplies there will have to be transported by a boat 4) The maintenance of all the rooms and resort facilities must be very costly . As per interview with Sir Jay, before Huma could start its operation last 2013, they were hit by the strongest typhoon Yolanda that damaged almost 80% of the resort. So the owner have to rebuild it again ( imagine how much was the cost of the construction?) And now they will be closing the resort to the public by August to end of September to have a renovation again and will be opened to the public by October 2017. CONS: buffet is expensive which is P2500 per pax but it is practical than ordering there by menu. Beach sand is not that fine. PROS: Upon arrival, they will hand you a cold towel and will be greeted by a song and drinks. They transferred us to our room by a buggy in which you will see the beautiful scenery of the place. Our room was very comfy and very colorful!! It was my first time to dip in Jacuzzi and it was awesome and the view!! We are not just lucky to experience the beautiful sunset as it was raining in the afternoon. The bathroom is also big and there is an indoor bathtub with the toiletries L'Occitane which is very nice not to bring home :) Overall, definitely I will recommend it to all future guests and will be looking forward to come back again . More promos please :)

                The hotel place is pretty but is notable the management dont care about the costumers because reviews tell all the things hotel need and they dont change. Food is poor quality and presentation.

                When we arrived in Busuanga, a staff assisted us right away to the van waiting for us. They gave us cold towel and bottled water. The land travel was one hour and boat ride was less than 30mins. And the moment we arrived in the island, they welcomed us with a song and a welcome drink. They then drove us to our water villa and we are pretty amazed with the view while riding the buggy. It was one of the most breathtaking view we have ever seen. It was that good! The room is so colorful and so comfy. The jacuzzi is already filled with water when we arrived which we enjoyed right away. The view while using the jacuzzi is again, so breathtaking. It was one of the most memorable vacations we had. We will surely comeback

                Me and my girlfriend stayed in Huma from 24-27 of April. First of all, it costed almost 500 USD per night so we expected quality services and experience but I didn't get any of it. Landed on the island but nobody's there to pick us up, already sent two email to confirm the transportation so we waited for 40 mins, reported to the manager there but said nothing just like oh I will check on that and never hear nothing from them, not even a sorry. Extremely expensive food,tasted normal....no hot water for shower room and Jacuzzi for two days (we only book 3 nights) complained but took 6 hours just to wait for management to confirm they r truly broken , ask something always take more than 30 mins to get it sometimes they don't even get back to you....the way they handle things were very disappointed.....overall great facilities but very bad menagement and service ....will never go back again. NOT MONEY WORTH ...THE DISCOUNT ON THE SITE IS A TRAP

                The location is great. Waters of Busuanga is serene, crystla clear, a natural beauty. But the resort management is the worst I,ve experienced. Our first day on the island we were informwd that only a few items on the menu were available as their supplies ran out. There were plenty of bugs in the room so we requested for room to be cleaned and jacussi filled with water. no one came and the reason given was they were short of people as most of the staff took a day off. We scheduled an island tour, no one called to confirm our tour and that everything is all set.

                Most invalue hotel experience ”
                I and my friends booking 4 units of water villa room stay for two night on April 12-14, 2017, on that time suppose be peak season which in coming of eastern holiday, but total out of 60 rooms only maybe 30 rooms were booked. (Price) Hotel mention their are 5 star hotel, but except for location , I can't feel any services and experience compare with others 5 star hotel, price arrange from hotel or agoda which Php 70,000 (USD 1,400) per night but usually discount up to PHP 25,000 ( USD 500) per night. this it's a "TRAP" that let you may think how high end of this hotel from price arrange USD 1400 into USD 500 almost 65% discounted. majority of people were same like me were want experience this "High End" hotel. (In Hotel Experience) we booked water villa room, which include one big Jacuzzi on each room, after getting tired with Island hoping we plan to use Jacuzzi for some relaxation. but Hotel inform us because their water supply problem hotel won't allow guest to use Jacuzzi, It's peak season and hotel mention due to water supply will not allow guest to use Jacuzzi, that time only 50% of room were occupied. how come hotel wont allow guest to use Jacuzzi which guest paid huge amount for booking their room?? There have 4-5 restaurants inside the hotel, but you need expect pay for USD 100/head for the food expense, it expensive ok.. but at least the taste should equal the price you spend, but sadly to said that food on hotel just very normal taste. Room service call , anytime time you call a room services expect waiting 30-45 mins to reply, if when the peak season , too much guest need to provide a services I can understand. but one of staff told me that times only very few guest were that time and they lack of staffs that time. Even I complain many times there not enough one manage level staff were explain to us, what they do ? just ignore it (Conclusion) this is most expensive hotel I were booked in Philippines and worst experience taken, PHP 25,000 (USD 500
