We spent 2 night at the resort at the end of our Philippines trip. The Resort staff could not have been more helpful or accommodating. They organised a pick up from our previous resort in Donsol and arranged transport through to the airport in Legaspi. The accommodation was really clean and the food all cooked to order. Fresh baked bread,...

The pricing would inply this is a top notch resort. It in not. Their staff is most welcomming and accomodating, and the houseweeping is excellent. However the standard of the facilities does not live up to the standard you would expect given the pricetag. All over the resort you will encounter toilets without functioning flushing, dripping water faucets. it is...

Ticao Island Resort is your home away from home. The place is utterly serene, it's a paradise! Resort staff are very warm, friendly and accommodating. The rooms are simple yet relaxing and well-kept. Not to mention the huge serving of meal that can feed 2 or more people. I originally planned to take Advance Open Water Course here, however, due...

I can't say enough great things about this resort. We went end of November and had a wonderful stay, and it was like our own private island! Vicky, the GM, did a great job of introducing herself as we arrived and immediately started taking great care of us. Ms. Ling at the restaurant provided us with wonderful service the whole...

This place you can really call authentic: it feels like it's the only resort on the island, the cottages are made of bamboo and wood and located on the beach, horses roam free and the beach is cleaned every day using a cart pulled by a Carabo. The staff are very friendly, we also enjoyed the plentiful meals which were...

Had a wonderful experience recently staying and diving in Ticao with my two young adult children. We had an overnight stay in the resort after taking a boat transfer arranged by the resort from the town of Donsol.
