I booked via their website and prepaid my room 5 months in advance. I printed off a copy of their email confirming my booking. I showed up to check in and no record of my booking. Asked me for a voucher which was never sent to me. After 1/2 hour my booking was honoured.
My room was situated on the side of a hill with views out to the surrounding mountains. The bed had clean linen and was comfortable with side tables. There was a small table and a chair and a wardrobe. Lighting was good. The aircon, ceiling fan and TV all worked well. I had to use a power point in the bathroom to recharge my phone.
The large tiled bathroom had a separate recessed shower area. Nice hot water shower with average water pressure.
The balcony had a table and two chairs.
The restaurant menu was primarily local dishes. I usually order chicken curry which was good but only had four different vegetables. Service, in general was pretty good.
Reception were able to organise my trike trip to the nearby waterfall.
They have a caged monkey here which was pretty sad to see. Nice gardens everywhere.
Complimentary trike to the Port.
I only stayed here one night but it was an enjoyable stay.

The resort was beautiful as it was surrounded with plants and nice view of the mountain.

We loved how they lay out the grounds and the rooms. Our room is located behind the main restaurant and lobby. Room was neat, pillows, beds and sheets were clean/comfortable, space had enough leg room and the view is amazing.

The food served were delicious. Our favorite drink was their mango shake. It is a must try.

Good service and kudos to the staff.

Recommending this to all types of travelers.

After discovering Sibuyan a little bit, I am convinced that Sanctuary Garden Resort is probably the best place to stay on the island. The location is great, the room we stayed in was clean and spacious but a little bit outdated (it actually smelled moldy in the room - not sure, whether it was due to rainy season etc.), the aircon loud, at the same time I was missing a fan that would have been totally sufficient, the bathroom with marble tiles nice but after coming back from a morning run I had no water in the shower.

However, the buildings and the garden have been designed in an authentic way, and it is beautiful to be in nature. The food I would rate as surprisingly boring. I read many reviews here and maybe I just ordered the wrong things (we had at least 10 different items, though), but I could not tell it was special or even good.

All in all, still a good experience (I would rate it with 3.5), the rooms are fairly priced, and given the fact that Sibuyan is really remote, one should not expect that everything is perfect, especially food-wise. It is a good place to start your Sibuyan adventure around Mt. Guiting-Guiting.

First of all after I have been in a fake hotel or tourist trap called the boat house on sibuyan
I arrived in a real paradise
Because of ferry cancel we end up there
One of the best resto on all islands I visited
Beautiful room very fair prize
There is a bus that bring you to port
This hotel was not listed in agoda or booking
Therefor I promised the owner to help hing to get well known
Owner is very fine man he is even looking to find a solution in future that things can go with credit card instead the boat house where they ask to pay on black account to avoid taxes and that for even not worth the name of a hotel
So I told the good man first promote your place then do the details
As world traveler on sibuyan island there is only one place
Sanctuary garden hotel
