It was a team building activity. We have planned to visit Nalusuan Island because of such nice pictures on their website and some 1st hand experiences a few of our team mates had but alas we encountered such a horrible staff. They can't provide entry with food when their website clearly stated no food corkage. There was also no mention...

We spent 2 days and 2 nights on this island. Enjoyed the snorkeling and swimming in both sandy beach and pier. Saw lots of marine life: Giant-clam, different colors of star-fish, colorful fishes "I think I saw Nemo and Dory", Sea Urchins, etc. The rooms are over the water and very clean and comfortable. The food and beverages were also...

The whole family spent two nights in this Island. It's a coral Island, and they built a resort on top of it, so don't expect a beach area with a wide expanse of sand, or sandbar. You'll get to see sand at sundown when the water recedes and the you and the children can walk for miles looking for shells....

This is a quite hidden small island outside of Mactan. I would recommend to plan the boattrip out there in decent time before (we had some challenges getting the right prices when we were at the harbor in Mactan..) The welcoming and friendly staff is really unique and service-minded. The clear water, the beach and the tranquility is worth the...

So here we go. We paid for 4 nights. The place it does looks relaxing at first sight but once you settled on you will realise a few things. No wifi No electricity on daytime No TV Rooms are so basic Toilets are BASIC. If you can get past all that then this is the place for you. The rate...

What a beautiful island, small. Clean cristal clear waters. Staff so helpful and friendly, nothing was to much trouble. This was a special occasion for me, my family and friends and nalusuan island did not disappoint. It was everything I wished for and more. Food was fresh and cooked to order and drinks cold and on ice. The island was...

Went there for a snorkeling trip, when I got the island, the boatman organized the payment for entrance fee. But then I merely stayed on the island for 5mins. And our boat was asked to leave the port. We cant even find a good place to snorkel because the boats are everywhere, and we got nowhere to dock. Just went...
