    Great place to relax and unwind ”

    We loved how the resort did not scrimp on food even if breakfast, lunch and dinner (buffet) were included in the room package. Use of kayak and horseback riding are free of charge too! Resort staff are really friendly and accommodating. Would recommend firefly watching especially when the sky is clear - it’s magical! My only suggestion would be on the land transport from the port to the resort and vice versa — i hope they’ll consider purchasing a newer vehicle to make the overall experience more pleasant.

    The place is so beautiful...perfect for relaxation. We did not come for diving but we had the whole beach for ourselves...the water is so clean for swimming. My daughter enjoyed her horseback ride. Food is excellent. The place is so safe and secured...you won’t worry walking around the resort at any time. The staffs are very pleasant.

    Ticao Island on my mind”

    Pros.. great place and great people plus very tasty food. It was most relaxing break for us. Spent a lot of time in the balcony of cabanas 10&11. We were lounging and having a great time with dogs and horses roaming around. We went island hopping, my hubby went to manta bowl ( two mantas were sighted), 3 of us did DSD, firefly watching and rode the horses like kids.. again. Cons... hmmm nothing really except maybe it is not that easy to get there but then it makes the whole experience better. Well.. the communities on both side should be taught more about segregation of waste and not throw trash indiscriminately. The resort cleans its front every morning but they keep coming back.

    Peaceful ”

    Place is peaceful! if you would like to get away from the noise of the city this is perfect place to go. This is a perfect place to relax. If you will lower down your expectation you will truly be amazed of the place. We enjoyed the sunrise it will remind you how wonderful life is and it will remind you that there is always hope. At noon the ocean is blue and calm and will give you inner peace. Staff? Cool However the only issue we've experience are the following : a. Information posted on their official website htps://www.ticao-island-resort.com. They should have checked the following as this will be our guide: 1. Fare is not updated 2. Schedule of ferry is not updated 3. Going back from bulan to Legazpi 4. package tour that they offered We truly believe the if they will improve the above mentioned feedback this will be a truly great experience for travelers

    It was a good experience. Ticao Island itself has so much to offer.”

    Upon arrival to Monreal port is a bit of a hassle, no helpdesk officer whom you can ask should you have questions. “Habal-habal” guy was nice. The staff of the resort were all nice and courteous. The kuya guide for island hopping was nice and very informative. The villagers are very nice too. I hope the resort will consider adding sea food in the menu. That’s the only thing I didn’t get to experience in that island.

    Manta, fireflies, glowing algae!”

    We only experienced kindness from the owner to the staff, dive master, dive guides, everyone! We are aware that this resort is off the beaten path but we still took public transportation to get to the island and it wasn't so bad. From Legazpi, take the van to Pilar Port (1-1.5hrs), then take the boat to Monreal (2hrs), then ride the motorcycle/habal-habal (40mins) to the resort. We were lucky to see manta in one of our dives and the moonless night allowed us to enjoy firefly watching, stargazing and watching the ocean glow from bioluminescent planktons! The resort is inside the cove so the waves are mostly calm and quiet. The food could use some seasoning but they have the best local beef I ever had in the Philippines!

    Nice place”

    I stayed here 2 nights, in beach front cottage. It is a nice place to relax but i would say a bit overpriced for what you get. Since there are just a few hotels on this island there is not much choice. It is good for reading and relaxing, the beach has many stones like in most places in the philippines but the cottage was comfortable. thanks

    Beautiful”

    A breathtaking location off the beaten track with beachfront Cabannas, very friendly, attentive staff, and a great dive-team. Perfect location, if you are a diver, for the Manta Bowl (3 sightings in 6 dives) or if you want a flop-and-drop few days away. Limited in what you can do unless you are happy being taken outside the complex by motor bike, but that is a very small negative amongst so many positives.

    Value for money is 10/10 however mode of transportation is limited to motorcycle. Staff is friendly and very accomodating. They serve also good food. Their home made ice cream is a must try. Wifi and data connection is almost none, that the only downside apart from that, everything is A okay

    Fantastic Relaxing small resort & great staff ”

    Food, staff and diving

    The resort is only small with 9 individual cabanas (beach hut) rooms, each with en suite and AC. They also have 4 budget rooms in a set back block with shared facilities. Located in it's own bay and as part of a large farming ranch this is a truly relaxing spot. No TV, phone service is intermittent and internet is slow when it works - all makes this a great get away. Well established dive centre, plenty of kit, compressor with Nitrox. The dive staff are friendly and some good dive spots from micro stuff at San Miguel Island or Manta Rays in Manta Bowl within a short boat rode. We enjoyed so much thinking of going back again this year!!

The staff are always helpful, the food is good and the place is relaxing. They prepared one of the vacant cabanas for a surprise meal for my wife and I with flowers, wine and white drapes.
