Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Been here twice, but this time with my family and we stayed overnight, the front beach are still beautiful but when you stroll around you will see scattered garbage at the back which for me was disappointing 😔

Service- still the same smiling and approachable staff..

Food- too pricy for its quantity and quality

Cleanliness - see photos at the back of the island.

Overall: Still a great experience, relaxing place to choose from..

Note:
They are also strict with their rooms when you check out, they charged us 500 pesos because of the stain left in the blanket, which for me I believe its part of their laundry service already.

Arrived with my family last Dec. 29 lunch time for a overnight stay, paid everything on the reception booked a special trip for the next day we were 14people with 2small kids 1pregnant and senior. Asked for receipt for the special trip but receptionist said its ok we can just go straight the next day. Staff was nice and approachable but since we were a bit early we decided to eat lunch, they have few options for viand, there was a steamed crab when I asked if they still have the server said wala na but when i was paying for the meal another couple asked for it and he bring out new ones, very disappointing. Rooms was great but no towels we need to ask for it, no place to hang the towels, no rugs in the toilet, since we got a package for dinner it they actually prepared it very nice and we got our own space for it. Next day Dec. 30 we had free breakfast included for package, unfortunately they only have 4 people staff to prepare for the food (1cook,1cashier,2server), even hot water was not prepared, we waited almost 30mins for the hot water and almost 1hr for the food. We decided to go home early since it was low tide and nothing to do on the island. Went to reception to give the keys and the deposit money, went to the boat thinking it was just us since i informed them upon arrival that we will be getting a special trip, but to my suprise few people also board the boat so we said to the guide that we paid for a special trip. But it was taking them so long my father decided to just ask the reception on the mainland but unfortunately there was also no answer from them, they just informed us that they will contact us but until now didn't hear from them.
Overall: place and some staff was nice
Service: poor almost terrible

We were suppose to have our booking last March 21 2020 but due to Covid we have to cancel and request for a refund.
i have been sending them mail and texts and calls but to no avail. Ms Mika once or twice connected with me and already asked my account number, but still after a month, no refund was given.

This place is over rated. We checked in for day trip, paid for Junior Suite room. We weee asked to wait for them to check the room. But when we entered the room the bed was slept in, the towels in the bathroom were hanging and used. We had to ask them to have it cleaned and disinfected. The reception did not mention to the housekeeping that they had the room used for massage.
It is too hot and inconvenient. The walk from the port is too long. Worst was that while swimming there were women’s napkin floating in the water.

We were the only checked in guests the day we were there. Service was bad. You couldn't even enjoy your meals properly. There were workers (staffs) sitting around in the dining area with their feet up on the table. Cats running around. So turn off. Not worth the money. They even charged us extra for the boat ride aside from the 750 each person. The extra is because the boat was not scheduled to run yet. Very disappointing trip!

Disappointed on this place. We need to pay 750 for the entrance fee even we booked an overnight stay. If boat do not exceed min of 20pax, you’ll need to add 1500 on top of 750. Very limited options for foods, no snacks. Tawhai floating bar is under maintenance. The place is like 30% under construction. My husband got injured going down a rusty stairs. Worst are the staffs! They saw the incident and no one even approached or helped (No sign or warning made after it pa) No customer service at all. They are lazy, most are just sitting, busy with their phones or playing volleyball while cottage tables are dirty. Seriously, staffs need to be trained. Rooms are pricey but good enough. Beach is good too.

Too pricey yet unmaintained. Booked junior suite and the place is not even done. Not worth it. There are a lot of other places in the Philippines that are better. Dirty, poor customer service, overlapping payment, the boat was over crowded. Disappointing and dangerous.

Lakawon island is amazing - clear blue water, powdery white sand, lush greens and instagram-worthy scenery. But, that is just it. Nothing more. Service is very poor and disappointing. We booked at the premier suite and arrived early for check-in. When we asked what we can do while waiting, the staff non-chalantly told us to just go around. I asked about spa, and they told us that there is no available masseuse; asked about snorkeling and said that the one who was releasing the gears was not around; asked about beach vb and was told that it is not working. We were just told that we can just swim for 3 days since there are no water activities. The disappointing part is that all of these were mentioned in their website and we were not informed that all amenities are not available when we are booking our accommodation. Talk about marketing deception. The place is also filled with unfinished structures which have rusting steel bars showing that the development has stopped for a long while. It is just a waste of our time and money. The island has all the makings of a maldives but was just wasted by the management.

My girlfriend and I were so excited to come to Lakawon. The main reason we wanted to come here was for the Floating Bar, but when we checked in, they told us the Floating Bar was closed for renovations. I felt the resort should have notified us and gave us an option to refund our money and return another time. To make matters worse, they said our room was ready, but if we wanted to check in, it would be 500 Php. They called it an "early check-in fee." I paid it, because we were hot and needed to use the restroom. There was no wifi, so you will need to use data. The rest of the staff were friendly, the food choices were limited, but the food was pretty good. Beautiful location, but this experience left a bad taste in my mouth and sadly we will not be returning. I really wanted to like this resort.

The island has been so commercialized. I remember being here when it was still nothing. You cant pay cash here ; you have to purchase an e-card and you can be reimbursed if you didn’t spend it all. The food selection is scarce. The water isn’t that great anymore. Most of the fishes are in the deep end of the ocean. And the water in the shallow part is murky and filled with weeds.

If you come from Bacolod its about a 2 hr drive and another 15-20 minute catamaran ride to the island depending on the tides/current.

The floating restaurant used to be included in the entrance fee ; now you have to pay it separate.
