This is my happy place <3 I've been coming back to Kandugyap frequently since August 2021 and I must say that this place is like no other. If you're looking to unplug from the rat race and enjoy the simpler things in life, you've found your place. It's my home away from home. They've upgraded their amenities significantly since I've first come here - there's fast and stable Fiber Internet (PLDT & Globe), free breakfast (you can choose from a few options), comfortable beds & pillows, soft & fluffy towels, and friendly & accommodating staff. The location is a bit further out from the main tourist area, but motorbikes/scooters can be rented or you can hitch a ride from their rover (for a fee) or hire a tricycle with a driver. Kayaks and paddleboards can be rented from this resort and it's always nice to go out and explore the nearby coves and beaches. My favorite thing about this place is the view! Sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking. If you want to get away from it all, this is the place.

DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY HERE. Here’s why: 1. RECEPTIONIST is RUDE. NOT ACCOMODATING (named DORIS) never show up in our 2days stay here 2. NO STAFF to take care when u need something 3. BEDSHEET IS THE WORST ONE. DIRTY. Picture is attached 4. TOWEL is gross and old 5.SHOWER- Water is too slow 6. POOL- DIRTY & NEVER CLEAN 7. BFAST food is so LITTLE. 2slice of tocino meat. unacceptable 8. VERY FAR from Good places to eat or Bayan NEVER AGAIN to this place. Definitely the worst last 2days we stay in Cebu that we spend 8days here. Better go to JELLYS RESORT. You’ll get what u paid for. SERVICE & FOOD. AVOID THIS PLACE!

The only negative was having to leave. Honestly, the location was beautiful. Great views. The infinity pool was great to swim and relax in. The staff was the best! They were very approachable and friendly. The professionalism from the staff was also nice. Their breakfasts while looking out at the ocean couldn’t have been better. We will definitely want to stay here again!

Since I am the type that really values privacy and tranquillity, I really enjoyed my stay here. There were hardly any people around - there were, after all, only 3 rooms in this resort. It's perfect for travellers seeking a quiet respite from their daily grind. Room amenities were adequate (hot shower, toiletries, cable TV, free bottled water, fridge); pool was nice - not too cold nor too hot; and I didn't have anything to complain about the service. We asked for breakfast to be served at 8am the next day, and they did. They also offered free transfer from the resort. No resto but you can have food delivered. I would definitely stay here again. :)

This place is a hidden gem!!!! Absolutely gorgeous and I would highly recommend. Very quiet. The views are outstanding! Even though there isn’t a restaurant, they ordered us a takeaway. The staff are very friendly. Everything was kept very clean. The pool was just perfect.

The place is ooohhh sooooo breath taking. But, customer service is something that weighs the guess' experiences dominantly. We were there last December 2017, and have experienced horrible service yet we ignored it cos the place was really one of a kind. We went back this August, and have tried pay for day tour since we haven't been able to book a villa reservation because there was room available and it was a long weekend after all. The receptionist or caretaker said that there is no day tour anymore. To our dismay, one of my friends tried to take some photos of the lamp or chandelier just to at least have some memento to the place that is supposedly sooooo worth coming back for. But the receptionist stopped her. She could have been nicer. She could have been welcoming. She could have at least smiled. Ganda ganda ng lugar pero bat ganon? Tsk

The staff are nice but undertrained, this place is not as fantastic as it is shown in photos, it needs renovation. We stayed for 2 nights in the Villa, room was huge but no wifi access, staff told us the wifi was not working due to strong wind :) shower was malfunctioning, water pressure was so slow. There was a power black out during our first night no generator and we had to wake kuya up sleeping in the receiving area to help us finding some candles :) and one thing there was a Mama Mary figurine at the attic and her one eye was staring at the dining area that i could see when i look up, was scary that I had to turn the figurine to the opposite side. There was a construction going on in front of our room, so we could not stay by the pool for sunbathing from 8 am onwards, we could not swim either as the current was so strong, photos show fantastic beach side but not during our stay. To be fair this place is so serene if you need isolation, just needs developed.

One thing we've learned from our trip in Bantayan is that 2 days and 1 night is not enough in this beautiful island especially if you are booked in Kandugyap House by the Sea. They only have 3 rooms in this resort. 1 is a villa which is good for 6 pax or more then the other 2 rooms are good for 2 pax. We booked the Dolores Villa and it felt like we owned the whole resort coz the guests in the other rooms were always out exploring the island. Such a peaceful place perfect for rest and relaxation. The staff were very accommodating too. They served yummy breakfast, lunch and dinner. They don't have a restaurant but you can ask them to cook and even go to the market for you for a minimal fee. We also love their pool. Although, this place is far from Sta. Fe proper but no worries coz they have a shuttle service for you. Such a mesmerizing place that you don't wan't to leave.

i'm italian, I been in this resort two times, first with my wife, and the second time, last January 2018, with my family. The place is magic, as paradise. In the morning you can wake up and stay in the swimming pool or just sit on a chair to watch the wonderful panorama, the men that they fish early morning.. Then the service is excellent, kindly and nice, they prepare typical breakfast for you every morning. We had rent scooters for go around the small city. The Island is wonderful, but not so easy to reach from Cebu city, you need almost 4 hours by bus from Cebu city bus station and 1 hour of ferry too. But it's worth the travel. I advice to stay at least 1 week. I hope i'll come back soon there, in the same resort of course!

location situated in a cliff overlooking the sea so the view is excellent and very relaxing. We love to just sit on the lounge watching the boats passed with the sound of the birds and splashing of the waves on the background.-- though situated in the cliff it is just a few steps on the beach so it is very accessible even for senior folks. The sunrise is very beautiful, I didn't miss any sunrise on my entire stay, each day i experienced different colours and beauty...it is beautiful. The resort is not in the main sta. fe beach but i have everything i need in the resort, as a matter of fact...We have been only once to kota beach and we didnt like it much because the beach looks dirty on low tide though it is very enticing on the picture and drone shots that we took. Other attractions is just walking distance from the resort like the cliff diving, ogtong cave and the paradise beach. The resort is quite small with only three rooms available and infinity pool...so we enjoy our privacy and tranquility...which gives us a very relaxing holiday away from the noise of the big crowd. Room is basic and not big enough but the bed and pillows are comfortable, it is clean including the bathroom and interior match with the concept of the resort. Food, the resort doesn't have in house restaurant but you can ask the staff to buy and prepare food for you at minimal price. Breakfast comes with the room and it is good and satisfying. Staff - they are the best. They are very nice and very accommodating...they try their very best to do all our request. We can feel the sincerity of their service and make us feel at home. Overall, We highly recommend Kandugyap house by the sea , It gives us a feeling of vacationing in our own rest house and there are many instagram-worthy spots with in the resort.
