Sagastrand Beach Resort is located on Olango Island, a small island just outside Cebu. From the resort there is a 10 min walk to the famous Olango Island Wildlife Sanctuary. There is also a fish sanctuary just outside the beach. The resort has 40 m white beach line and consists for the time being of 2 houses and a restaurant. The houses have high standard and a very nice garden with possibilities for several different activities like swimming in the swimming pool, mini golf, billiard, volleyball and relaxation beside the swimming pool or in one of the beach houses to mention a few. The houses have very nice terraces with sea view. The daily life on Olango Island has not changed significantly the last few generations, so tourists will have an exotic backpacker experience visiting the island.

We had guests here before for an island hopping and we picked them around the shore nearby this resort. They said they love the place since everything is affordable and we went there also one time. The place looks good. Anyway, if you wanna have an island hopping in Olango island and other neighboring islands, contact me through whatsapp: +639260851914.

Clothes we hung to dry was STOLEN! We paid for 8 days but were only able to stand this place for 3 days - Air BNB won't refund money-just tiny fraction.They don't back you up for the FALSE ADVERTISING of this garbage DUMP! During the day, the bring MASSIVE groups for island hopping - gross- blowing their nose in the pool. Female Staff - GREAT. The watched over me as a male staffer was trying a scam. Male Staff- not trustworthy. Always trying to make an extra buck from tourists. Gave us a price for the boat at 4000 pesos, but at the last minute demanded 7500. Settled on 6500 just to be taken to another island with a little better beach but also with garbage floating in the water. Techno music playing loud from neighbouring property from 6am til late night.

We booked this "Bech resort" with lots of excitement and high hopes for our Family Christmas. We got there and surprise, surprise-- THERE IS NO BEACH. Not surprised though to see enormous amounts of garbage on the beach and floating in the water. The "beach" is a huge muddy and smelly dump with man y local kids playing with the garbage (pieces of tires, garbage bags, rotten sticks).

Sagastrand had security guards on duty which sat in between the only two houses on the resort. I was given a key and locked the front door before going to the fiesta that we were invited to. I did not expect to have to check every single window in the house to see if they were locked or not when checking in to the resort. Every window was closed, but none of the windows were locked. I don't understand why the windows would be purposely closed, but not locked?... Plus there were security guards the whole time supposedly monitoring the premises. That night we did attempt to contact the manager (the one living across the street) and we determined that they were probably sleeping since it was 1am. I was able to talk to her the next morning. At the fiesta, some locals offered food and drinks and I said I did not have my wallet on me and they assured me that paying the following day wasn't an issue. They tried to hustle me out of more cash and were unable to follow the math to calculate three items, but that's another story and seems to be the norm there. An employee at Sagastrand was able to help charge extra to my credit card to give cash to return to the manager to later give to her cousin so that specific debt was settled in the end. Owners of the resort were unwilling to compensate for what happened, which is perfectly reasonable since they themselves were not personally responsible. Had I not have had to leave the country hours after this event occurred, I’d have pursued further action. I have no choice but to leave an honest review of a negative experience I had at Sagastrand, only to have the owner of the resort accuse my friends of the ones responsible for the theft of our own items. This resort is on a beautiful island, but I could not recommend staying here due to the lack of safety. If two security guards are sitting 25 feet away from the front door in a resort that is completely fenced off, thefts should not be happening.

A fabulous stay and experience at Sagastrand Resort, that has a beachfront with a beautiful view of the city skyline. This resort is one of the most modern & best valued beach front resort with a European fusion flare in Olango island. I stayed in one of the rooms in the econo cabin, which is a newly built house with 2 individual ac rooms with a very comfortable plush bed and private bathroom. This was my 3rd trip back and I am constantly surprised with the new developments such as a 2nd pool to accommodate the day time guests while the overnight guests have there our own with ample lounge chairs. Besides snorkeling and bird watching in the nearby Olango sanctuaries, I enjoyed unwinding on the outdoor massage bed with a fresh mango shake overlooking the beach in the evening and also, walking along the long dock while watching the local fishermen, who live in the neighboring community, bringing in their daily catch. I actually had an amazing opportunity to have dinner at a fisher family's home as I befriended Nanay Baksi, who worked at the marine sanctuary and who happened to live in the fishing village close to the resort. I was truly graced by her and her family and relatives genuine kindness and hospitality. As we bonded further, she shared about the impact of the pollution, overfishing, and natural disasters that devastated the livelihood of her community. I deeply appreciate all the efforts and hardwork that many invested to help these communities including us tourists as our tourism dollars support those, who patrol the marine sanctuary from illegal fishing for the protection and repopulation of fish in the surrounding areas while also providing funds for livelihood projects, which give the locals another source of income. The marine sanctuary is ran by the Barangay/neighborhood captain, who initiated a coop program to share the profits from entrance fees, sale of their handmade products, and restaurant with the locals managing and maintaining it. I also discovered to further help with the communities, the director/manager of Sagastrand, those working at the resort are all locals. Over 5 years, she now employs 30 locals and growing. As well, she provides internships for the local students. Being even a small part of this, by simply enjoying my holidays with genuine beautiful hearted people at the resort and the communities, truly has been an unexpected blessing and a more meaningful and purposeful experience in Olango island.
