    staff were not accomodating”
    nice facilities as its right by the beach but staff were not too accomodating or welcoming. I booked this hotel because of the ogtong cave that they have. But nothing special about it. The cave was closed exactly at 4pm. And we got there just around 3:45 and werent able to use it. Too strict staff

    Relaxing atmosphere! ”
    Pros: If you need a relaxing place, this place is a good one! Private pool is clean and good and the food is good! Cons: it is beach front but you will not enjoy the beach. White sand shore is just a small area and you need to walk to go for a better swimming spot.

    Nice hotel”
    We had good experience with Ogtong mainly bec of its proximity to beach front, has its own cave inside the premise and private pools exclusively for in house guests. However it's rather far from the market and port, and fare for tricycle can be a bit expensive. Must walk through grass from room to lobby where only in the latter has wifi - could be quiet scary at night esp if raining. Also at night time there's nonstop music played aloud nearby it's a bit disturbing. Food is also pricey and just so so. Staff are not so friendly too. But hotel facilities are okay and clean environment. Overall I'm happy with our stay.

    Pro: on the beach, grounds are kept clean, nice landscaping, nice pool, nice cave, friendly staff, air conditioning is cold, hot and cold water, not in the city, peaceful and quiet. Con: no wifi, only 3 channels on the 1980's style TV, no free breakfast (like all other hotels in Philippines), most rooms do NOT have view of the beach, overall the rooms seem outdated and overpriced, Watch it for the tricycles if you stay here, they intentionally charge double rates if you stay here (was told by other tricycle drivers what I should have paid vs what I was charged. A shuttle would be nice for guests due to distance.

    Ogtong Cave Resort is not very near Sta. Fe port. it is quiet in the area. not a lot of stores nearby, but tricycle fare is cheap.. normally 25 to 30 pesos to go to the restaurant or grocery. the view is really nice, lots of garden.. they only have pocket beach fronts, but still nice view..

    Exploring Northern Cebu With The Family”
    We booked a Family Room for 2 nights for a family of 2 adults and 3 kids. The resort offered free shuttle service to and from the seaport. The Family Room given to us was roomy with 3 single beds and 1 queen bed. It has a powerful split-type aircon and a personal ref. What was amazing about this room is that it has 2 bathrooms with hot and cold shower. The TV though was analog, although with plenty of cable channels. The free toiletries given were very basic (soap, shampoo and toothpaste). The towels were a bit worn out but clean. It had 2 wardrobe cabinets but no dresser. Our room was located a few feet from the private swimming pool. The resort has 2 swimming pools - one exclusively for the resort's guests' use, and the other for public use. The swimming pools were clean with life guards, and resort grounds were very nice and well kept. The beach is too shallow and murky for swimming. The resort also has a private cave hence its name - Ogtong Cave Resort, with crystal clear water for swimming, which is however limited to adults 14 years and older. I would have given this resort a five star if not for the restaurant. The food is very pricey. the food quality is poor, and with very few choices. And it is only available on certain hours of the day (I was told the cook goes home after cooking) - so no merienda. And there are no nearby restaurants to go to. The resort is a bit far from Sta. Fe town although there are tricycles waiting outside the resort. There is no night life.

    It was a really nice experience to stay at Ogtong. The staff were really accomodating. When we asked for a hair dryer, they did not charge us for an additional fee - awesome! If I'd be going back to Bantayan Island, I'd definitely have no second thoughts on where to stay again - of course, still at Ogtong Cave. Keep it up guys! :)

    A great honeymoon getaway gift for my friend!”
    I booked accommodations at Ogtong as a gift for my friend's wedding. I requested a several surprises to make the ambiance inside the room fit for honeymoon and the staff accommodated my requests even if it was an additional job for them to set the room up. They were really fantastic and they didn't even accept a tip from me because they said it was part of their services! When my friend and his wife checked-in, they were all praises of the resort and the staff too! I'll definitely send more friends over! 😊

    One of decent stays in Bantayan”
    This is the third time I checked in this resort and I can say that they have maintained it well. Their facilities haven’t changed a bit. Servers were polite. I’d still say it’s one of the most decents stays in Sta. Fe, Bantayan. The only cons are: 1.) There’s no internet in the rooms, only in the lobby. 2.) Swimming is only from 8 am - 6 pm. Night swimming are cut-off early since their lifeguards will not be available after 6pm.

    There were so many things wrong with room, from broken wardrobe handles to electrical sockets hanging out of the wall. Blind in bathroom had snapped its string. Curtains couldn’t close so no privacy until I fixed. No outside light as bulb had broken. Phone didn’t work so couldn’t contact reception.

    NICE PLACE WITH EXCELLENT SERVICE CREW”
    You will never regret in booking at this Resort.. From the time you will arrive at bantayan sta fe they will fetch you with a van for free. The room is nice depending on what room you have reserved. There is 2 pools: one is for public use and the other one is exclusively for check-in guest which is very nice pool. With land tour you will be free of entrance at Sta fe beach club near port, free entrance at paradise resort. Here at Ogtong Cave Resort where you can see and swim at ogtong cave and it is also free but for those guest who didnt check-in at the resort will pay for 200pesos(if not mistaken) for you to see and swim at the cave. Therefore, you can save money. The crew were very nice and approachable. We celebrated our first wed anniversary here and i tried to reached out for all the crew at the canteen and they helped me out to make a surprise dinner date with my wife. And to be honest i myself was happy with their preparation for the said dinner which cost only 300pesos

    The good.... the toom was nice size. The grounds are nice. The cave was great. A few problems with the room but taken care of quickly. Also they picked us up at the ferry and brought us to the ferry. The bad.... the food was expensive and only ok. Flies were around. The bikes are expensive getting out of the resort. The beach was only ok. Went island hopping with I think his name was Lito. I recommend him.

    We enjoyed our stay. We stayed at the Garden Villa room no. 6. The room is clean and very organized. It is overlooking the sea. The swimming pool with jacuzzi which can be used by the in-house guest is nice. There is a separate pool for walk-in and in-house guests. Aside from that you can also dip in the cool waters og the cave. I will go back to this place someday.

    Okay stay :)”
    If you want more than just the beach and the sunset, Ogtong Cave Resort has got to be one of the places to stay in in Bantayan Island. The pool and the cave pool will give you other options of cooling yourself down. However, its a bit far from the areas where you can dine (MJ Square). Overall, the stay was okay :) the room is roomy and clean, and the whole area is not crowded :)

    poorly maintained hotel. Bad service.”
    Food is tolerable
    It was a really bad experience. We got the most expensive room -- the suite with jacuzzi. - room smells bad! Like old rotten wood. - mattress smells bad like it has not been used for ages - resto has huge mosquitoes, you'd fear for ur life - we rented a kayak. With holes!!! We almost drowned bec one area in the beach has strong current. We told the hotel staff that thay they should not be renting out those defective kayaks, but they just told us that we should not let it capsize! - no warnig on the area of the beach with current - no lifeguard - we paid for 3 nights but we only ended up sleeping there for 1 night. We went to another cheaper hotel but better maintained with no fouls smell - we are a frequent travller, and this hotel by far is the worst! And this is not the cheapest though! - i am submitting this review as concern to other travellers. Choose other resort instead. Will never ever be going back to ogtong cave hotel!
