Superb resort with extremely caring staff and a very homey feel! The owners (Norwegian and Filipina) are so kind. The water in the beach is crystal clear (see first picture) and generally warm and inviting. I don’t eat rice and was really worried where to find camote, sweet potatoes and bananas but their in-house driver procured them for us and the staff kindly cooked them for me and my guest during every meal. They also boiled my herbal leaves during my stay and when I offered to pay extra after my stay, they said it’s for free. The price points are VERY good and I honestly pay a lot more when I stay in comparable or similar accomodation . Honestly it’s a steal!!! Don’t forget to check out the nearby Balogo mangrove sanctuary, just 30mins away from the resort by tricycle. “Balogo is on the northern coast between the towns of San Andres and Calatrava. Balogo Fish Sanctuary rests at the foot of a section of the Burburanan Forest, some of the last primary forest on Tablas Island.”- Romblon website. The barangay captain of Balogo very kindly toured us for two days in the sanctuary and on the second day we even rented a small boat (yea we loved it so much that my client and I came back the next day). The number of the Brgy captain of anyone wants to visit is +63 920 488 1632…
There’s something very special about Footprints Beach Resort…like you’ve discovered a little piece of paradise! From the minute we arrived, we felt so relaxed. There’s a really chill vibe to the place and we instantly felt like we were staying with friends. Owen and Angie were so nice to us and really made our stay something truly unforgettable. Definitely the best resort we stayed at during our 30 day trip in the Philippines. The food was excellent and the bar is the perfect spot to chill and while away the hours. Our only warning is you might get depressed for a few days after you leave as your body gets dragged back into reality after the bliss of Footprints!
What a great place!! Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 3 nights and could not have been happier with everything. 10/10 for the accommodation, restaurant, bar, beach and last but not least the staff! Owen and Angie were so nice and helpful with everything, the Air condition bungalow was perfect for us. Clean and spacious and great water power in the shower 😁 Food at the restaurant was so nice, the Chicken Adobo and Chicken Sisig were one of the best Philippine dishes we had during our one month stay in Philippines. Highly recommend for any traveller that wants to kick back, enjoy the beach relax and have the option to go explore beautiful Tablas island. Looking forward to coming back again to this great place and then for longer stay! Best, Eythor and Kolfinna
Relaxing, laid back, comfortable. We’ve stayed at Footprints several times & always find it enjoyable. We travel constantly from island to island & really like Tablas & Footprints. Reminds us of Boracay before it was commercialized. Food is delicious and reasonably priced. Tablas Island is off the beaten path so getting some ingredients is challenging but they are usually well stocked. We highly recommend this place.
Be for all the owners and the staff very helpful and welcoming, the place clean and quite suitable for solo or couple beach just few steps sunset was amazing room clean I enjoyed my stay I will back again
I arrived after 9pm when everything is closed down but one of the staff produced a key and showed me to my garden view bungalow. The bungalow is of bamboo construction with a concrete bathroom and is tiled throughout including the porch which had two chairs. My bed with mosquito net had clean linen and was very comfortable. There were side tables with two power points next to one for recharging. There was a shelf unit and a pedestal fan which was as quiet as you could expect. Lighting was reasonable. A small table and chair would be a practical addition. Having a clock on the wall was a unique touch. The bathroom was clean and had a modern feel to it. The separate shower area was cold water with good pressure. I did not miss having aircon as the room never got warm. Probably because the screened louvered windows allowed the sea breeze in all the time. As much as I like a warm shower having cold water only didn't bother me. Traveling solo I can also go without a TV for a few days. However, if I was traveling with my partner I would definitely pay the extra for one of the four beachfront bungalows. The restaurant has a reasonable menu and the food was okay. If you just want to chill out there are sunloungers on the beach and hammocks at your disposal. At night after 8pm when everything is closed down you only hear the waves lapping the beach and crickets. No roosters here. A big shout out to Owen for his local knowledge and assistance. I hope all went well with the birth. Everyone including the staff are friendly, cheerful and helpful. Even the dogs accompanied me on my beach walks. They all make your stay here very relaxing. One of the best beach resorts I have stayed at throughout the Philippines. I hope to bring my girlfriend back here one day.…
Footprints Beach Resort is well known on the island of Tablas, situated around 45 minute drive from the port of Odiongan and around 1 hour from San Augustin making it pretty easy to get to from either ports. It is at the end of a idyllic sand track and is west facing meaning the sunsets are just breathtaking. We chose to visit footprints after watching Lost LeBlanc’s YouTube channel where he has nothing but positive things to say about the resort. We originally booked a small fan room with a shared bathroom which was absolutely what we expected it to be however once we saw the large air con rooms facing the beach we couldn’t resist to upgrade. The rooms were immaculately clean and extremely comfortable with all amenities necessary (even a hairdryer)! The cleaning ladies also kindly washed our clothes for 100 pesos per kilo. The resort itself is beautiful with the most gorgeous beach setting with a restaurant on the beach also. The sunsets around 5pm were the best we have ever seen. They offer paddle boards and a kayak for free to use throughout your days on the beach. We had a few days lounging on the beach sitting in the hammocks and also hired a scooter one day for 500 pesos and drove down to Looc to go snorkelling which was good! What really made this resort stand out to us was the generosity and kindness of the owners Owen and Angie. They assisted us onto our next travels by calling their contacts to get us onto ferry manifestos and also booked us a few tricycles that we needed. On one occasion my girlfriend was in extreme pain and needed to go to the hospital, the owners drove us in their family car down to the hospital and showed us everything we needed. They had genuine concern and compassion for us which was extremity comforting in a country very far from home. Their two dogs are also extremely affectionate and adorable! If we had to make any suggestions then we would have said to add maybe some salad / more healthier based options to the menu - but that’s just us being picky! Footprints was a pleasure and a lovely safe environment for all guests, whether that be couples, families or solo travellers. Completely faultless, thank you for making our time in Tablas unforgettable.…
super nice, pure nature, wonderful to relax, wonderful food, fanstastic host! to get to know the island, rent a car or scooter, roads are good. There's a lot to discover ! not much traffic is fun! Arriving by plane or ferry from batangas, caticlan or Mindoro Thank you so much fot the host Angi and Owen Stef
Very nice resort, friendly staff, good local and international food, and beautiful beach with indescribable sunsets in the sea. Scooters can also be rented, which is a great way to explore the island.
We were greeted by two big very friendly dogs, Nulla and Zion. There were a lot of foreigners and the food was kinda expensive but the place was really relaxing and the sound of the waves were really calming. I liked their sisig and their banana milk shake. My family had a great time.
