    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.

    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!

    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.

    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

    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.

    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!!

    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.
