That was fantastic and the staff and owner was very service minded and lovely. We visit the island for wedding and it was a wonderful wedding. That was not high season so we have the resort for us self.

My family and I visited and we took a 15 min boat ride and a few minutes motorbike ride (habal-habal). The place was pleasant enough except for the workers using chainsaw and it was very loud to the extent that we couldn’t hear ourselves. The food was okay and they only accept cash. Overall the experience and stay was great. My family and I enjoyed!

Went there with the family (large group). Took the boat from San Carlos City to Sipaway island. I must say that the boat ride was pleasant! You can see corals and fishes swimming by from the boat. When we got to the resort you have to hop off the boat and have to walk a few meters in order to get to the walkway going to the resort. The walkway itself was slippery that you have to be careful not to slip. The resort itself is so so. I guess decent enough for a day trip. We had our lunch at their restaurant , nice clean but it needs more lighting. The food was just ok but the staff were wonderful. The surroundings have this nice "nature" vibe and good for photo shoots:-)

I and my friend visited Sipaway Island, from San Carlos City you have to take a boat going to this Island. The travel time is 15 mins only, upon reaching sipaway you have to ride a motorbike(habal-habal) they will bring you to your destination. We came early to this Whispering Palms Island Resort hahaha, because we so excited so we wait for the hotel to open. We are lucky that day only very few tourist came so we enjoyed a lot swimming in the swimming pool and exploring the beach front. The place is so relaxing and very peaceful. I wanna come back if i have the time next time.

We booked this place based on the Lonely Planet recommendation, and only checked TA reviews a few days before arriving. We were pretty nervous, especially about the crappy beach and "resort-wide sound system". Luckily, our fears were unfounded. Sure, it's not a five star resort, but we got the cheapest room and I'd say it was really good value for money. The sound system is only in the restaurant - we couldn't hear it from our room (except in the toilet), so no problem there. In the evening, the main sounds we could hear were from fellow holiday-makers in the bar. I get the feeling that's a regular occurrence but wasn't a major problem for us. The resort is wonderfully kitsch in general; we thoroughly enjoyed just mooching around and spotting the random statues and hidden gems. The beach is indeed not an idyllic white sands kind of place, but it's still pleasant to relax on the free loungers there and read a while. Note that the resort does have picturesque beach huts out to sea, accessed via a walkway, but oftentimes the dive centre's compressor is on and it's a noisy beast. Snorkelling is pretty decent, and Mia who runs the dive centre was great. Every room, even the cheapest, come with a two-person hammock. It was a fantastic amenity to have and really enhanced our stay. The rooms were clean, came with a free water tower, and a decent bathroom. We're not fans of caged animals so can't really comment on the minizoo. Being able to borrow bikes for free was great though, and highly recommended. Everyone we passed on the island gave us a big friendly smile. The German chap (Stephen?) on the counter is indeed somewhat brusque, but we found him helpful if not altogether warm. The rest of the staff were really lovely; they seem to work long hours and do a great job so we hope they're remunerated fairly. On wifi: you get a code so can only have internet access for one device per room per day. Speed seems to vary from 2.5kbs (prehistoric) to 250kbs (reasonable, but still on the slow side). We only spent two nights but wish it could have been more. It was a perfect end to our trip.
