Grace Island
Ranked #4 of 7 things to do in San Jose
Attraction details
Reviewed 13 June 2013

Grace Island Resort is an exclusive ancestral cove resort developed in an island about an hour of boat-ride off the coasts of San Jose Occidental Mindoro. A day tour package for group of 10-15 pax is worth 6k pesos which includes 2-way boat transfer, use of open cottage, and free use of non-motorized water rides. Various packages for overnight accommodation are also available. Included in our package were 2-way boat transfer, use of floating cottages, free use of non-motorized water rides and bikes plus 3 full meals. The food was superbly prepared and delightful to taste which includes an appetizer, 2 main courses, side dish, fresh fruits and drinks. Other amenities in the resort include beach volleyball, basketball court, strolling area, mini zoo, zip line, grill and videoke bar plus of course water sports activities like speed boating, para sailing, jet ski, banana boat, snorkeling, and diving, There was also a big function room for special occasions.
Due to remoteness of the area, electricity was provided by generating system from 6pm-6am only. Fresh water was being delivered by boat from nearby islands or from mainland San Jose. Cellular phone signal was poor and there was no wifi connection. Satellite TV was available though. Resort personnel and staff were 'stay-in' living in quarters designated for them. There was in-house pastor who performs morning and evening service for employees.
The place was well secured and peaceful; so quite at night. It is ideal for honeymooners and those who wanted to escape the busy life of the city. One will have unlimited privacy as long as desired.This being a cove, the sea water was very calm clear and clean. Fresh catch by fishermen can be bought and enjoyed fried or grilled.
Those who prefer day tour package, make sure to bring food and drinking water. Fresh fish and/or meat can be brought since free use of grill is available at the resort.
