We stayed in the main bungalow, just on the beach. The accomodation is very basic and certanly need an upgrade, but was good enough, especially for the price which was ridiculously cheap. If the room need to be cleaned up, you need to ask for it. It is a little bit isolated and remote, but on motorbykes, everything is 10...

Just outside the village and away from the sound and bustle of Bounty Beach, Mangrove Oriental Resort is an oasis of tranquility. The resort stretches from a hilltop, where the main building (with reception, lounge and restaurant) and most of the rooms are, down its own private beaches with cottages. The rooms are tastefully furnished and super comfortable. Was shown...

We ended up changing hotel after one night even though we already had paid for 6nights. The aircon did not work; it made A LOT of noise in the middle of the night (like chopping wood) , and was too small for the room so it was really hot all night. I tried telling the staff the next morning, they...

We arrived and noticed immediately that the room we had booked was completely different from the one on the website. This room was horrible in a pale greenish color and glasswindows of red that looked like blood. The bathroom was heavily infested with mold and smelled like something died in there. The air condition was so loud that we could...

We stayed at a beach cottage that was beautifully decorated. Old wooden furniture and colored umbrellas on the roof part made it beautiful. There is no WIFI connection in the room, but at the lobby/restaurant it is ok and there's a breeze as well. No outdoor fans at the rooms so it can be quite hot to sit outside in...

Great place to stay. Their rooms are modest but clean. Cool quiet air conditioning. The breakfast is regular Filipino fare. Its advisable to order the night before so you have breakfast on time if you're going on an early morning dive. Dinner is cozy. Even if the dining area is not air conditioned, its cool and windy because the resto...

Mangrove resort is located in a wonderful position, between 2 beaches that are really nicest. The main building is still showing the disaster caused by the Typhoon that struck the island 2 years ago. People managing the place are kind, and I could see they are making their best effort to keep the place clean, even if the 2 beaches...

I booked via travelbook and fully paid the room rate. However, when I reached the resort around 5pm, no one there, neither the staff nor the guests. I waited there over 1 hour and tried everything to figure out how can I got in touch with the resort manager, but failed. Finally, I have to leave in the dark and...

“Banyan and Kasbah can be negotiated down to just a little more than the standard room price, and will make your stay exceptionally more comfortable, romantic and memorable. We spent half of our time in each one.”
