          Wifi only available at reception”

          It was disappointing that the advertised Wifi was only available at the reception area not actually in the rooms. The resort is in a nice location, with nice pools and cave. The onsite restaurant food was expensive compared to the food in town and could not be paid by credit card. The bathroom/toilet layout is quite small.

          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.

          Poor Management”

          Nice looking place but I could write an essay on the poor management. Deferred maintenance. Poor Breakfast yet over priced everything is powder: Juice, coffee, cream etc. etc. Any service you have to request. Like please make up my room. The only place for internet is the reception area and then it is weak. Flies, ants as I said I could go on and on and on. I was told but another visitor that it was owned by the Chinese and the just did not care. Hence. I would recommend staying at another place and avoid the over price of this poor managed hotel.

          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

          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.

          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! 😊

          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..

          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.

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.
