Value
Apo Island, located in the Philippines, is rated one of the top 10 dive sites in the world. Surrounded by hundreds of species of fish and marine life, the island is a jewel of the underworld. Spectacular diving is usually accessible at deep sea level, but a beautiful reef is found right beyond the shores of Apo Island Beach Resort. Apo Island Beach Resort is nested in a private cove within unique rock formations on a beautiful white beach.

We stopped for a beer and a quick bite after swimming with turtles in this restaurant / bar. Service was fair and honestly they do well with the menu considering it is a small island and the logistics of supplying kitchens, but I would not rush back to eat there.

Stayed here for just a few hours as part of our Apo Island Marine Reserve activity. We didn't have access to the rooms as we were not officially their guests. But because of mobility limitations of my parents, we were accommodated. We did have our lunch there which included a variety of fish selections. I'd say the portions were generous and the food was good. It is a cove that has it's own beach which gives exclusivity to their guests. The resort looks appealing and would consider staying here if the price is right.

The location of this resort is fantastic, a nice little private cove (until they host a tour lunch when 30 additional people come traipsing through) with snorkeling on your doorstep. However the rooms are in poor condition and the staff are unhelpful and inattentive. We were the only guests there and were outnumbered by staff and others lounging around in the common areas. Food was ok but overpriced. We asked for help in organising transport off the island at the end of our stay, and were told we could book a private boat or make our own way. We were booked for 2 nights, but left after 1 and booked a better room at another hotel on the main beach for about 1/3 the price. No problem there in organising affordable transport back to the mainland.

My family stayed in this resort for a night and we didn't enjoy it. We stayed in Surf 2, the room was dusty and it smells like a house which was not occupied for such a long time, therefore it wasn't clean. There was no running water and the supply was very limited.Electrity is from 6pm to 11pm, we went to bed just before the lights turned off, but we were awaken in the middle of the night feeling hot and sweaty. We then opened our windows to let the cool breeze in, but since it was dark and almost midnight, there was a scary thought that an invader might just pop in . By the way, the staff left the resort around 9 or 10pm . There was a couple of men , like a security guard who stayed in the resort.The cool breeze couldn't get in, so we had to open our door. That didn't work too. So my husband decided to sleep outside. He did have a good sleep but the rest of us didn't sleep well inside the cottage. The next morning we were all exhausted and my husband end up with insect bites . Athough the resort looked picture perfect, it was'nt a relaxing place to be. The food ranges from 200 to 350 pesos and you really don't have any other choice except to eat the food that are available, that time they only had chicken and fish .To add to our misery and this is I think is the most important for travellers especially with kids, going to and fro Apo Island is quite rough to very rough, safety wise, think more than twice and check the weather before riding on the boat. Yes, there is a coastguard who monitors the water situation but for the safety of the family and peace of mind ,please think ! The bigger boat the better. But the bigger the boat the more expensive it is.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in July. We stayed in the Lower Triton cottage. The resort is on a secluded beach on Apo Island, and has a little restaurant/bar and a little dive shop that didn't appear to be operational during our stay but we were visiting in the rainy season. The resort wouldn't suit the faint of heart- we struggled a bit with aspects of it and we are pretty avid travellers. There is no electricity except between 6pm-10pm, and there is no running water. Both of these aspects of our stay wouldn't have bothered us, however- Our cottage was very dusty and the bathroom was far from nice. You wouldn't want to hang out there for long! The restaurant tries hard given the obviously very limited resources and access to fresh produce on the tiny island, but the food could definitely be improved even with these considerations. It should be noted that trying to walk along the beach/through the rocks from the resort to the main "town" of Apo Island is pretty impossible at high tide and trying to cross should be avoided if possible particularly if you have children. There really aren't many other restaurant options in the main town anyway, we ended up eating at the resort restaurant. The positives: the location and scenery is stunning and it is a special experience to stay on a remote island and tiny secluded beach without all the creature comforts one might be used to. We did get to swim with turtles (note- you have to pay for a guide which we only found out upon arriving but it's not expensive). At this point I should say that we were extremely saddened to see the amount of litter on the beach of the main town- where the turtles swim/gather. It did tarnish our experience and made us very concerned for the island in future.... it was good to see efforts to clean up the rubbish at the resort beach itself. There were also turtles swimming right in front of the resort which was pretty special. The staff do try hard and seemed well intentioned, however overall we would not return to the island overnight and would simply day trip to Apo Island from one of the nicer resorts on Dauin.

We were booked at the Lower Triton. The resort is tucked in on the left side of the island, which gives you enough privacy and less people. Although it can get crowded during lunch as they cater to day tourists coming from Siquijor island. Like all the other resorts/homestays in the island, the resort doesn't have direct access to water, which means you are only given 1 drum of fresh water for shower and another drum of seawater to flush the toilet. In the morning, we were told that we can just ask the staff for more water if we needed more. But during the night, when we asked for fresh water from their nightshift staff, they hesitated and told us that they only give 1 drum of water once a day as 1 drum is enough, in the end they still gave us another water. Electricity is only available from 6pm until 12midnight, which gives you ample time to charge your powerbanks and other gadgets. The resort also offers boat rides which costs PHP1,000/person going to Siquijor (PHP500.00 if you stay at their Siquijor resort counterpart - Coco Grove). The resort's restaurant also serves food on a schedule as they don't use a lot of electricity. Overall the resort is nice, with friendly "MORNING" staff. Has a lovely view of the sunset.

Of course it is nice to be staying in a hotel with its own private cove, beach and reef, not to mention having breakfast and dinner on the beach. Despite these advantages, however, I felt the resort was not very good value. The staff are not particularly helpful or friendly, the food is poor and it seems odd that the water and electricity are cut all day when this isn't the case at the resort's cheaper rival a couple of hundred metres away. The food was also tastier and cheaper elsewhere on the island Their reef is convenient but far from spectacular and in any case you need to go the main shore to be sure of seeing turtles. Swimming and snorkeling with the giant turtles in shallow water quite close to the shore is unforgettable, wherever you choose to stay, and there is still some beautiful coral a little further out despite the damage done by a typhoon a few years ago.

Beautiful view. Extremely nice beach. Very good for snorkling. We stayed for 3 nights and were very satisfied. The food isn’t anything special at all and it is quite primitive, but it’s just such a wonderful Island that everything’s totally worth it. The resort’s diving instruktor is a very nice guy as Well.

The resort is small and secluded. It’s true paradise. Lovely staff, great service. Just a small walk (10 min) you walk into the sea and swim among the turtles. Great snorkeling and diving opportunities. The resort has it’s own private beach, when the boats with all the turtle tours leave, it’s nice and quiet again. The village is great, authentic full of nice people. Hopefully the Island and its inhabitants can make sure they take care of the turtles and coral in a eco-friendly way. I think there is room for improvement there. The resort is fantastic, staff is very accomadating. A few more vegetarian options on the menu would be a plus.

We came here as part of a boat tour to swim with turtles. We were welcomed just as any other paying guest. The beach is private and the accommodation looked amazing!! We just wish we had the opportunity to stay the night! The staff put on a buffet style lunch which was sooo good! If you're thinking of staying on Apo island, i would suggest checking this place out - I wish we had!
