Best of the best location to stay”
We are very relaxed to stay here, location is isolated island where you can snorkeling at the best spot. A lot of tourist during the day, but after 4.00 pm is very peaceful and the sunset view here is speechless. As it is an island, cost of living here is included extra charge, the food is very good taste though. Staff also very nice.
Amazing location and staff”
Loved the location would 100% recommend going here for a night or two. Food was good and fair value so were drinks however water should be cheaper. View from room balcony was amazing Bed was comfy but fan in room #15 was very noisy and on top of that would intermittently squeal so had to leave on lowest setting. The aircon sounded like a tractor was idling in the room, so left that off.
Didn't really go there...”
If you are planning to stay in the resort, just keep in mind that the boats to the island only run before 5pm. You won't find the reminder in the information page, and since the booking is basically unrefundable, it tends to be too late when you notice that in the confirmation page. My flight landed in 4:20pm, so I could't get to the property. I wrote to the staff to find out a solution but their response are quite ineffecient and reluctant. It was lucky enought that I then learnt that my friends were also planning to visit Cebu, so I transfer the booking to their name. According to my friends, the resort is really tiny, but the view is good. Food is awful and there is no hot shower.
As usual Nalasuan Island is the Best of the Best in the Phillipines! A little pricey but the best! All staff are Absolutely wonderful friendly and helpful, great location, fabulous rooms, took my parents in law and they loved it too. Excellent snorkelling, great food. The Best in the Phillipines! Can't wait to come back! 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍
If your looking for someplace you can visit just a few minutes from Mactan Island, then this is the place to be! Quite place and honestly so many fishes you can see. The place you can snorkel is safe and has a cordoned area. The rooms are over looking the ocean and has such a great view ( no tv though ). It is very quite in the early morning and late afternoon ( they have a lot of Island Hopping tourists around 10 pm to 3: 00 pm so it gets a little noisy ). Another thing, they charge you Php 2500 when they bring you to and fro to the island. We were only 2 people in a big banca, this seemed very inefficient and expensive, maybe they could offer a time as to when guests can be brought to the island as a group? That way they could save on money (the guest) as well fuel used just for that trip.
Stunning, tranquil location within an hour of Mactan Cebu airport. The staff, food & snorkeling were all great & even when the daytrippers are visiting it's simply idyllic.House guests have access to exclusive areas both in & out of the water so just ask!
Perfect island with fish, and pool like beach”
Staffs arranging the pick up boat is nice, and was there waiting us with no complains. The hotel itself is abit old and needs a renovation for the rooms maybe, but takes nothing away from the staffs and surroundings. One side is perfect for snorkel with variety of fish. Another side is as calm as a swimming pool (or a huge sand bank during low tide). Restaurant is very locally priced with great food. Island is very quiet, with just 2 rooms occupied during our stay. The staffs has some pet dogs and cat are big plus as well. Definitely would come back if i come Cebu again!
The marine reserve was very tiny area to snorkel and most of it was dead from the huge amount of tourists in the water. The accommodation was bad. No hot water. Food was only average and the grounds had no beaches or lounge chairs. It’s ok to visit for an hour or two but I would not recommend staying there.
Untrustworthy establishment! This hotel does not accept guests after 16:00, since it is inaccessible after that hour. However, they do not inform customers about this fact until the booking is made. And then, it is too late, since their bookings are normally non-refundable. When I complained, they simply stopped responding to my calls and emails (even blocked my email address). This looks like a SCAM to me.
Honeymoon and diving”
Best place for snorkeling and diving ,so romantic place ,love here
One of the best in cebu”
We’ve been here twice and it never fails to amuse us. What we love the most about the place is the school of colorful fishes along the dock. Snorkelling is a must when u visit the place... the food needs to be improved though.
Great place to bad we had a tropical storm to watch ”
So great things were : -Amazing staff and brilliant food (TRY mango float ! ) .. Snorkelling area well maintained with corals and fishes and lovely dogs running around Not so great : Wifi and restricted electricity and low water pressure . Over would have had a blast time if it wasn't the storm but the resort tried it's best especially the staff!
Our stay at Nalusuan was magic. The photos don't do it justice at all. We had read many reviews and most were great, some said out was too busy, however we had the island completely to ourselves for our stay. The staff were great, even giving us a tour on the way out on the boat and explaining ascot the area. There were quite a few day trippers but we were put first always. When checking out, they allowed us to stay in our room until we wanted to go which was 4pm. The fish you can see when snorkeling are awesome. Overall, highly recommended and a beautiful place to spend a few days.
Relaxing Island Stay”
The place was nice. Quiet and not plenty of people when we were there. Electricity available from 6pm to 6am. You can hear the birds chirping in your balcony facing the sea. Food was very good. Access by boat to the Island for P2,000. And the staff were nice and polite.
Which is an awsome experience! It is a little far away, you have to go to the wharf then transfer the boat to this island, but is totally worth it once you get there! Warm welcome, nice food, most important , it is very pretty! Snorkeling side, beach , and I watch sunset there, everything is amazing!
The resort is too noisy for relaxation”
I am a snorkelling lover , the snorkelling spot at this resort is excellent . But the resort will be crowed with noisy day trip tourist in the afternoon, and there is no place for me to relaxing at the beach . The room of the resort has no electricity from 8.00am to 6.00pm , it's so hot that I cannot relaxing in my room too .
If you like to look at fish tanks you will love this place.”
Philippines sea has so much to offer and sight seeing adventure. You will be able to explore if if you do not scuba dive or snorkel. Crystal clean water view as low tide approaches from your balcony or walkin pier. Place was outstanding for this and this alone. Second best thing going was the squid adobe spicy hot breakfast. Third was the moon light or sunrise from the balcaony. Bottom three was no hot water no room service without requesting no electricity from 8am to 6pm. Also you have to fetch your own hot water to make coffee in room. I will be happy to return.
Best vacation ever. Stayed with my friend 5 nights and could stay longer. Beautiful. Friendly staff. Daytrippers come and go on day but then it's so quiet! Beautiful stars and sunrises. Water is so clear! Lot of fishes when snorkeling. Definitely going back someday. And guys play music at the bar at evenings. We felt like VIP guest when got privat show. Wonderful!
Very nice escape for a night or two”
Little paradise... Too bad it is now full of outsiders tourists (especially Korean and Japanaese) coming for a snorkeling tour around the island. The people from the hotel are very nice. Wonderful spot.
The best of all my vacation stays”
These two nights in nalusuan offered me the best vacation experiance. Gorgeous island, great staff, peacefull stay, so relaxing and enjoyable. I wish i stayed longer. Yes if you compare with other luxury resorts, nalusuan won't be your choice. Facilities are simple, but this is never a problem. Sleeping in the simple waterhouse, waking up watching sunrise above the shallow water sea outside the balcony, with a banca parking just nearby, we were lost in words. Resort manager Hendrich is very nice, talked much with us, arranged resort clinic for our moto wounds, showed us around, helped with transportation, we cannot thank him enough. We are glad we took some beautiful photos to share. It is amazing to walk along the shallow sand beach on the back after the fall of tide, starfishes(also fabulous blue ones), shell, crabs, urchins,,,everywhere...and you can walk into the sea for hundreds of meters with water depth not higher over your knees. The stunning long wooden bridge in the front is a great spot for pics. So many nice memories there. Daily tour arrives between 10am-3pm, other than that period, you own the peace and amazing sight, do snorkling near the bridge end and play with all the corlorful fishes. hendrich joked as "I'm so bored here with my music, the sea", yeah can only laugh over it with deep jealousy
