The prices are dear comparison to Philippines standard but the quality of service is amazing here. It is a resort you go to really forget you are in Philippines away from smoke, smog, traffic noise, the stress of having to bargain EVERYTHING, and just be pampered. I think 4 nights here is adequate to unwind any longer though you'll get... More

My wife and I spent six nights, over New Year, at Badian Island Resort. Looking at their very professional website, and considering the high cost, we thought it was going to be very special. Sadly, this was not the case. The only thing that was 5* was the price. Badian is no more than a modest 3*. This is a... More

We stayed 3 nights at Badian Island this week. It is quite far from Cebu airport, the 2 1/2 hours that are advertised are at least 3 1/2 in reality. The resort is very spacious, with beautiful beaches and excellent amenities. Dinner was served on another location every night: in the restaurant, at the pool side and on the beach.... More

We stayed in this charming remote resort last week, with clean water, great and nice staff, delicious food, charming German Boss, and were disappointed by the lack of TV and slow internet connection.

+ Beautifully situated on its own island, very friendly staff. Spacious rooms. - Extremely overpriced. Food, excursions, everything is 50-200% more expensive than in comparable hotels and resorts, even with better standard. As a small comparison, I take a small bottle of San Miguel costing maximum 125php elsewhere. It costs 220php at Badian. If you want to stay at a... More

We stayed at the resort for 5 days, as a scuba diving vacation in the Moalboal area of Cebu island. When I looked around for nice resorts with diving accommodations and big beds, the room prices for the Badian compared evenly with some of the better-rated resorts in the area. I was looking at the "family suite" as opposed to... More
