The picture in the internet is perfect but in reality, it disappoints us. The place is too far. The beach is unclean. The pool is so dull. The place is totally disgusting. We already booked thru Agoda.com, but we ended up being transfered to other resorts. The resort staffs are unfriendly and rude.

We got there late in the afternoon and the staff helped us settle down. The owner and the staff are all friendly and accommodating. Rooms are reasonably...

As others have pointed out already, this is in a quiet place and on a quiet beach. After landing to Cebu and quite an interesting bus ride we made our way to the hotel (with the transport provided) and it was simply amazing to arrive. Staff was extremely friendly, meals were amazing (try the pancakes with mango) and tours were...

No mobile phone connection, hardly good internet connection... Monarch Sands reminded me and my sisters how being unplugged really feels. And, it really felt bloody fantastic. The good and the bad: 1. We opted to take the city tour offered. This one, I will NOT recommend anyone to take. Dumaguete City has nothing in it, frankly, and the tour's fee...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Under new ownership now since November 2016 Cove Sands Beach and Dive Resort has undergone many changes and improvements is the perfect vacation haven for the entire family. Located just 40 km drive from the local airport, north of the sleepy town of Siaton, Negros Oriental. Nestled on a secluded cove lies the peaceful and beautiful Cove Sands Beach Resort. We have various native style cottages made of Nipa, Bamboo and local materials, and cottages of conventional build all with aircon which all face the blue waters of the Bohol sea. Each cottage has a large porch to watch the local fishermen sail their small Bangka boats out for the nightly catch. The string of a hundred lights fill the horizon as they cast their nets. Snorkel our scenic cove, or have a dive in our newly renovated pool or just simply unwind and enjoy one of the most beautiful sunsets in Negros. Cove Sands Beach and Dive Resort is a cozy place to spend a quiet time by the beach. ... more   less
