I have been to Bantayan Island many times and we always stayed at Sta. Fe, near the beaches. This time around, my friends and I wanted to try something new and experience the rest of Bantayan, and that's why we stayed here at Bantayan Island Nature Park and Resort.
Sure, they do not have a beachfront like the other accommodations on the island, but they do have direct access to the ocean, which means you can still go swimming and even snorkeling. And they offer a lot more to their guests!
First off, the rooms we stayed in were so spacious and comfortable. I loved their decor, the aircon worked perfectly, and the toilet was clean and did not clog. The resort also has an Olympic-sized pool for you to enjoy in case you're tired of swimming in the sea. For families, they have a kiddie pool for the kids. Want to do more swimming? Why not try their cave pool? Yes, guys, they have a cave pool! That was only the second time I swam in a cave pool and it was awesome for me! The cave pool wasn't so big but it's such a nice experience.
The best part is that this resort is a nature park, which means expect to be surrounded by nature while there. Beautiful sunrises, lush green trees, pleasant bird song each morning, cute cats, flowers, cool breeze - these are just some of the things I thoroughly enjoyed there. AND the resort is eco-friendly. The owner is really serious in his commitment to have a low impact on the surrounding environs. They have their own waste management system that's working great.
As for the food, no complaints there. I recommend you try the gourmet dangit pasta and the gumamela shake! Overall, we had a wonderful stay at Bantayan Island Nature Park and resort. Thanks so much to everyone who welcomed us there!
