              Most wonderful experience in my life”

              The crystal clear blue water, shinning sun, white sandy beach and endless blue sky took my heart away. It felt wonderful on this island. Everything was so private and the hut I chose, I could hear the ocean waves, I stepped out of the hut I could be right in the ocean. I travelled to many different islands in my life but nothing felt as special as this place. The Resort gives you full information on what could be provided or what not - so you are fully aware of these before departing. I had a really small baby travelling with me this time and it was a bit difficult here and there with the facilities on the island but the owner and the staffs were really support and helpful. I wish I could stay longer or it's already in my plan to come back :) Love the experience and you would love it too.

              We stayed there a couple of days at the end of our Palawan trip and we enjoyed the island a lot. The cottage and facilies are very simple but you don't need more. To have this amazing white beach, very clean sea and coral reef in front of your cottages is just amazing!!

              Though the hotel is a little far to access to, but it is totally worthy. Quiet place for relaxing. Staff are very friendly and service is well. The beach view is good, and I go snorling, enjoy that very much. I will recommend to my friend .

              island

              it is hotel in the island. you can walk around it by 15 min. this thing is the biggest and best advantage there. it is very nice to see fauna and flora in this island but if you are not snorkeling or diving you are not like to be there more then 2 or 3 nigths... the food is not the best in the hotel restaurant. it is good but i think not very fresh... the houses is too old and not so nice like was early when the hotel was open.

              This place is so basic, like living in a hut, but we absolutely loved it. It is so beautiful and so relaxing. But keep in mind showering in salt water and lights out at night and no electricity during the day. If you are happy with that, and your feet in the sand at meals, then this is the place for you.

              Too expensive for what it is. Shower water was salty, electricity only from 6pm til 8am, very simple bungalows. It just should have been cheaper than it was. On the plus side, the island location is unbeatable. Just make sure you don't pay as much as we did.

              great!”

              nice people, private island, nice food. good value

              do the night dive if you are a diver - great guide and great sea life. try to get the a cabin with less crabs under it - they make a lot of noise at night

              A wonderful place to relax”

              I’m now 3 times on this Island, but it pain my heart to see how this beautiful place goes down. POSITIVE: It’s a paradise to relax and enjoy. Super friendly personal, fantastic food and white sand with palm trees. Like in a movie! NEGATIVE: Only 2 cottages of 12 are good. In the other 10 cottages the owner have to invest money. Beach Full of sand flies! Very dirty behind the beach front. In main house is raining in. Owner please do something

              Una isla Increíble ”

              La isla es espectacular, pero es para relajarse y hacer deportes acuáticos, no es lujo pero tienes lo básico. El personal es lo mejor sobre todo Ryan y Rick son súper atentos, te ayudan en lo que pueden y con respecto a la isla es espectacular, muchas actividades marinas lo recomiendo y volvería mas veces.

              El personal y la propia isla son lo mejor

              una isla de menos de un kilometro de circumferencia, con todas las casitas en primera linea de mar. con pension completa (en cada comida, te preguntan que querras comer en la siguiente comida) y un staff amplio y muy agradable, pendiente de todo. el resort se ocupa de llevarte a la isla (gratis desde el puerto) y luego te devuelven al puerto y te llevan a la estacion de autobus si lo necesitas (tambien gratis)...el agua, los cafes y el te, tambien son gratuitos y lo tienes a tu disposicion 24 horas. la tranquilidad y la playa (toda la isla es playa) son increibles...hay posibilidad de island hopping, hay billar, juegos, ping-pong...y a las casitas no les falta de nada. con aseo propio, mosquitera...una maravilla!!...
