Stay for 8 nights, satisfied overall. Clean rooms, friendly staff. Need to improve water pressure and internet speed and quality. Would be nice to build a small kids playground. So not bad choice for the money.

Best hotel in Bantayan island! I forgot my wallet in my room and emailed Marlin a couple of days later. They responded right away and send it to my hotel that I stayed in at the time in cebu city. They did not want anything for it, their only concern was that I got back my wallet back safely. That...

I had little expectation of this place, but I ended up liking it a lot. We had a room on the second floor with a balcony and an ocean view. They are lucky to have built their property on a very nice part of the beach - powdery white sand, quiet, colorful beach, and when you are on the beachfront,...

We arrived with a van waiting us for the pick-up. The resort is clean, staff are very accommodating; from the receptionist to the security guard. They always greet you with a smile. Though they need to improve their food tasting more; still the place is a relaxing and nice to stay. Great for family outing and team building.

Thanks for appreciating the place.However,we didn't expect that this could be happen since the food was serve hot.Precisely we check everything before we serve the food.And with regards to the accommodation,only the beachfront room has ref but all the rooms have no tv as you will see from our website.

Just finishing a week here. Nice rooms with balconies overlooking the beach. The beach, the reason for a vacation here, is perfect. Breakfast is ok. Service generally quite friendly. I particularly liked the location. Step out of the hotel, two hundred yards to the right and you're on the restaurant street. Some good restaurants, Cou Cou, and a cute place,...
