This resort is promising but I wish they maintained it well. The beach is not sandy. The food was good enough. But the rooms need to be fixed. They were old and very basic. Toilet bowl flush was spoiled, and I had no confidence in the cleanliness of their bathroom that I could not get myself to shower there. Balcony...

We recently stayed at Duka Bay Resort for my father in law's weekend birthday getaway. We travelled with small children, but it wasn't really a problem for us since they had spacious rooms. The resort has one restaurant where you can dine, plus also offers several activities (glass boat, and snorkelling to name a few). If you're looking for a...

I and my officemates spend our first summer outing in this resort. The beach is not as nice as that of camiguin or boracay. But the accommodation was simply worth the price we paid. Perhaps, the best thing there is the security and privacy. Also, parking space are enough.

Droppin' by for a lunch and to rest a while... The scenery, waves, foods, seem made my time from a very hot, super hot temperature. Made it more special time with my family around. The crabs with coconut milk on it, completes the day.

If your thinking of high end resorts then dont go here... Medina is a small town and this place is on the rate of average. But if you just happen to be here then spend some quality time with your family on a nice quiet beach with a great view. They also have a glass boat so you could look...

Medina is a sleepy town and when in the area the best place to stay would be Duka Bay Resort. Good points: The best thing about the place would be it's amazing sunrise & sunset views as well as it's crystal clear waters. The fact there is also a spring nearby makes the water even better. Food is good and...

The best thing I like about Duka Bay is the clear, clean beach water which is a blend into spring water and the saline of the sea. It's kind to the skin and sunburn is less likely when compared to other beaches. The spring generously pours out into the beach and some oozes out from the beneath the shoreline which...

We spent our day off here recently. There is not much actual beach. Food Service is good. The diving service was fantastic. There is one PADI instructor. The resort could use a few chaise lounges. They had just a few chairs.
