    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

    Thank You Ticao Island Resort Staff”
    I stayed here for my honeymoon. It was my second visit in 2018 having stayed there in March and I returned in November after marying my Filipina wife. 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. Recomended.

    Where to stay in Ticao”
    Stayed here in June and there's not much people which made it a truly relaxing vacation. Ate Vicky and the whole staff were nice and accommodating. They took care of me and made me feel at home. The only downside is the road going to the resort if you're choosing to take habal habal, otherwise you can rent a boat from San Jacinto port which is a better alternative. Food was great, big servings and they can accommodate anything you like. The beach Hut rooms were simple and comfortable. Really has an islander feel. Kudos to the free kayaks and horseback riding because you'll never feel bored. The best thing is having a dive shop on site for those who wants to take their padi and dive on real diving spots such as the manta bowl. My guide kuya Oscar was super nice as well! I'll be sure to come back and I highly recommend this place.

    Great service, food and the staff are all friendly and accommodating. Its just hard to reach the place coming from Masbate City. You need to take the ferry from the port from Masbate, then a VAN and boat again before reaching the Resort.

    Im sure we will be going back here, it’s better than El Nido, it’s very relaxing and not crowded. Diving is breathtaking , one of the most beautiful dive I ever had. The staff in Ticao Island are all friendly.

    Nice location, relatively quiet”
    I stayed here for a week with my girlfriend. The location is good, right on a yellow sand beach that is kept clean. The staff were always pleasant and helpful. The menu was better than most, thanks to Ezra's home baked bread. Thankfully, videoke is not allowed, but there is music blasting from the village at the far end of the beach at various times - something that is inevitable in the Philippines . Could have done without the sound of the wood planer whining away behind the the room where I was staying...and the dog barking at night on the zip line too! However, it was a nice stay. The access road is 25 minutes down a muddy track, so it's not easy to get to and from the resort without hiring a motorcycle rider with a good sense of balance to get you away from there. We used the free kayak to paddle around the mangroves. There's not much inland to see but we took the motorcycle tour to a waterfall and San Jacinto...it was ok. One of the better places I've stayed.

    Very nice staff. But thats it. Not worth going there. Stony, dirty beach. Nearly 2 hours trike ride to get there through mud and dirty roads. The route via boat is much better. Was charged 2500 p for 40 minutes van abd 800 peso for 30 minutes with mini boat. Food mediocre!

    Silent Sanctuary”
    I had a great time during my stay. Though, the typhoon was forecasted to hit Samar and other nearby provinces except Masbate, but I guess since its facing Samar so it has been affected too. Its hard to get to the resort, the road heading to the resort was damaged. I had to get off the habal-habal numerous times. Good thing, I was able to arrive safe and sound. And, I got a spacious room all for myself but not the restroom. It turns out to be shared with other guy guests leaving some stains which in fact, they have their own designated male restroom. On the other hand, I wasn't able to swim; the water is yellowish like in the river. Some garbage flashed all over the shore. So, I decided to just do kayaking. I was able to feel how quaint life is in this resort. Its all worth-it after all. Their staff are courteous. You really feel like you're home away. I'll definitely go back not during typhoon season and will try diving next time.
