      Good”

      The location is not good even though it is by the sea, because the ambience is so terrible. It seems unsafe to stay there. The last straw is some part of the property is under construction. I thought we went to a wrong place.I didn’t even check in when I arrived there. I left and stayed for one more night at the former hotel.

      Best Resort for Intimacy and Privacy”

      Best resort in Bantayan. Very tranquil and private away from the hustle and bustle of the town proper. The price is very reasonable considering the amenities that comes with it. I love how the pool never gets overcrowded and if you're lucky enough you will end up the only guest/s of the resort. Just remember to ask your driver to drop you off in any of the mini marts in the town proper prior arriving at the resort to buy your necessities such as water, chips and all as there's no store nearby the resort.For the food, they have an affiliated resto which can deliver on a reasonable price. Overall,I would really recommend Kandugyap to everyone out there who prefers privacy, intimacy and relaxation.

      A place to consider”

      The location was far from everything but the service and the rooms were all commendable. We had an amazing stay despite not being able to swim in the sea ( in the area) because the staffs are accommodating and they've got a very instagrammable place with a small infinity pool. We had a peaceful sleep every night during our stay, the sheets are clean and the bed is comfortable. They also serve a really good breakfast. Overall, I would recommend this accommodation if you're planning to stay in Bantayan.

      T'was a good experience staying here. We even opted to extend our stay and unfortunately, there's no available room. Food was great, staff were very FRIENDLY!! They have this awesome pool with a private beach so you won't care no less seeing your beer belly while swimming on the beach lol. Less than 10 mins away from MJ Square via motorcycle. Will definitely book here again. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

      Really enjoyed our stay here. So many features ... the pool, the private beach, the outdoor area and seating. The location is a little distance from Santa Fe, but they provide transport to and from (one way for free). Breakfast was a nice touch, and delicious. And the staff are amazing.

      Loved this place. Room amenities were sufficient (cable TV, hot shower, toiletries, A/C, bottled water), front desk staff was accomodating, nice pool. No resto but you can have food delivered. Had the beach almost all to ourselves during our stay. Not as close to Sta. Fe pier as other more popular resorts, but that’s what makes it so quiet and relaxing. Definitely would stay here again!

      Privacy”

      Pros: Privacy at its best. You can be alone in the pool or the beach and when it is low tide you can walk to the other part of the beach with beautiful rock formations. Cons: location is far from city center but you can rent the trike for just 100.

      Very Beatiful Place”

      Place is quite far from the port and other must visit places, but the place itself is paradise. Only 3 rooms available so the place is not crowded. It has its own small secluded beach and a big pool. The resort is santorini inspired, very picturesque. Perfect for those who doesn't like crowded places.

      Perfect for travelers who just want to chill and relax.”

      The place is great and perfect for relaxation. It is very peaceful too. It seemed that we have it exclusive because we booked the villa and there were only 2 rooms good for two so there were very few people staying in the resort. The staff are very friendly, responsive and accommodating. They arranged a very nice breakfast by the sea. You can also see them cleaning the resort every now and then which made it very clean. While I was still in the resort, I already recommended it to my friends who have seen my instagram stories of the resort. Thank you, Kandugyap! 😊

      The place is small which I find it better as if it is your own rest house. The view from the infinity pool is amazing. The room is clean and everything inside is perfect. They only serve breakfast meals and it’s delicious and served with excellence. The resort doesn’t have a restaurant so you have to rent a tricycle if you want to eat different meals. I love the way their staffs attend to the needs of their guests and they are genuine. I will definitely choose this place again.

      Very good”

      -Stayed in Dolores Villa- Pros: -The view is great! Very relaxing. -Room is spacious. Can accommodate 6-8persons -With kitchenette. You can buy and cook your own food. -They have water dispenser inside the room. -Very private. The resort have only 3rooms. 2 small rooms and 1 villa. So Its like, you own the place. -Infinity Pool is nice with kiddie pool. Only Few resorts in sta fe have swimming pool. -Free pick-up/drop-off in pier & v.v. But you have to inform them on your arrival/departure time. Otherwise you will go there on your own for 30php each via trycikad. -Beach is impressive. Its like a hidden and virgin beach. You can walk in the sand during low tide where water is calm and you can find amazing creatures like shells/sea urchins/sea cucumber. You can also see some locals looking for shells in the area. Cons: -P1000 each for extra person (in excess of 2 guests) -Breakfast is basic filipino breakfast. -Room is not so impressive in the actual. -Room has no ceiling so during hot weather, the 2 aircons are not enough to cool the room. -TV has no cable. They use Cignal. -Place is secluded from the long beach. -Finding trycikad in the area is hard, so you should ask the front desk to find a trycikad for you. Most trycikad charged higher fee for tourists. You should know how to bargain. I suggest, you rent for a motorbike worth P300-350 for 24hrs, its much cheaper. Overall, I will still come back in this place. My stay in bantayan is memorable due to kandugyap. :-)

      Awesome Place”

      The place was nice and not crowded. Clean rooms. They have their own beach where some of the scenes in the movie camp sawi was shot. We just had a problem with one of the staff. She let us checked in early but a few hours after getting in the room, she advised us that there is a charge per hour for early check in which we were not informed. We talked to the owner and agreed that we will not pay any additional as we should have been informed before getting in the room. The staff even lied that she advised us about the charge beforehand. Upon check out, the staff didn't let us go without paying the extra charge as she said it will be charged to her. Can't take the hassle of calling the owner again and wasting more time as we are trying to catch the next ferry going back to Cebu. The staff didn't even say sorry or admit her fault and even lied just to take the blame away from her.

      Home Away From Home”

      If you want a perfect staycation, this is the place to be. I traveled to get away from the busy city life and this was just the answer to it. It's almost like a private resort just for you. The place is picture perfect where you can have a total escape from the noise of the metropolis. Though it's a bit away from the town proper (which you could actually rent a scooter good for 24 hours), the location is great for a cozy and silent getaway. It's a few meters away from this nice pizza resto and the ruins. The food for breakfast were sumptuous. The staff are very accommodating. We chat with them like we've known them forever. They see to it that we are very comfortable with our short stay. I would recommend this resort to you guys who want to have a great rest for a week. (They also have a free shuttle transfer when you're on your way back to the port)

      Amazing santorini like experience ”

      Although a bit secluded, but once youll get there youll be rewarded with the amazing views of the whole place. A taste of santorini indeed! The only problem for me is the accessibility especially when it comes to looking for a nearby restos or carinderia since the resort offers only the same food as their free breakfast. So better do some groceries first before heading. Just dont include drinking water on your list since they have unlimited supply of that, hot or cold.

      more beautiful than what you see in photos”

      My friends booked the dolores villa and we got excited upon seeing the photos but when we got to the place... it was amazingly beyond our expectations. It was like having your own rest house in a beautiful island. The exterior and interior designs were awesome, like every corner, as they would call it.. "instagram-worthy." The staff were really accommodating and ready, like almost any time of the day. The bed and AC made the stay comfortable. Having the option to dine inside and even outside the house was really cool. It was the best choice for our accommodation during our whole trip. I wish to go back to this place again one day and I hope they'd still have the awesome villa, services, and food.
