Great location, just by a sandy beach. The room was large, but it was quite hot and the ceiling fan did not work, instead we were provided with portable fans, but these are quite noisy. There is very good breakfast and the restaurant offers very good food, including Japanese. The staff was very helpful and have arranged for us a trip around the beautiful island and a transfer to the port. At the time of our visit wifi did not work at the rooms, only at the restaurant and its was very slow.

That's how they made me feel from the moment I arrived. Put me in an awful room that was nothing like the pictures on Booking.com. It was adjoining the staff quarters. When the staff got up before 6am, then I was up too. Worse there was no water for my bathroom. There was only 3/4 of a glass of red wine at dinner, they had run out. And the chicken they served was the cheapest cut possible. I have traveled SE Asia, stayed in homestays and been entertained in very poor people's houses and I can accept their way of life. But not this. Siquijor is a great island. West coast is good. East coast too. Pictures of staff quarters next to my room. Unimpressed.

Villa Marmarine offers comfortable rooms with wonderful ocean view and 7-star hospitality. The restaurant serves best Japanese cuisine in the Viscaya area, as well as local specialties and fresh local produce. The proprietor is Japanese with courteous Filipino staff, and so offers superior service and genuine gastronomic treats to a broad international clientele. The resort has its own dive shop and large boat that shares the pier with Coco Grove Beach Resort, so the set-up is excellent (Both provides transportation to the pier). The diving in Siquihol is superb and unspoiled. You can see Apo Island afar, so the rich underwater environment is no surprise. Schools of fish, some large turtles, barracuda and occasional dolphins. Motor bikes can be rented at the Villa too, providing convenient overland exploration. is also

We spent 4 nights at Villa Marmarine and it was a very relaxing time. The first two nights we had a really nice queen size bed and sea-view room, with the AC. For the last two nights, due to availability (we booked late), we moved into a cheaper 3-single-bed room. While it was definitely a lower standard (hostel feel), the price was fair and we even got a small discount on it. There are lovely homes / suites at the resort too so worth calling them to check the options. A great breakfast is included in the price of the room. Additionally, for stays over 2 nights there’s a free laundry service. There is a port drop off for the ferry rides (and they booked our tickets as well). The place offers a motorcycle rental at a good price (300 pesos, cheaper than in town). The restaurant serves very good, locally sourced food at affordable places. We had only one meal outside of the resort, because we really enjoyed it. The beach is right in the front. There are hammocks outside and a few beach chairs (although not directly on the beach). The water is nice, but there are rocks and plants so worth having water shoes. As everything on the island is close, there are better beaches for swimming. Usually we were the only people on this beach, which feels very peaceful. The highlight of our stay was the kind and accommodating staff. The resort runs a working student program where university age students learn how the resort runs and do all tasks, from check-in, serving food through house keeping. In general, this place is involved and supportive of the local community which we really appreciate. The owner is Japanese and very nice. The staff came to say goodbye to us at the end of our visit, which was really sweet.

The Villa Marmarine is one of those places where the whole is more than the sum of its parts. It’s a uniquely satisfying beach resort for folks who desire a low-key change of pace. The staff is eager to please, the restaurant never disappoints, and a fine beach is just steps from your cottage. You can sleep soundly, knowing that just by enjoying Villa Marmarine's hospitality you are helping to fund improvements at local schools and vocational training for local youth. Villa Marmarine is a happy blend of Japanese and Filipino ideas about relaxation. It realizes the vision of the Haradas, who after many years of teaching at schools abroad, set out to build a very special resort on the north shore of Siquijor Island. Neither too big or too small, low-key and friendly, distant from the buzz of motorbikes, the resort has grown cottage by comfortable cottage over the years. No two are alike; each is an exemplar of local craftsmanship. The guests during our five nights at Villa Marmarine were a diverse group. We mixed easily, encouraged, I think, by consistently positive vibes from the resort staff and random wi-fi outages. My wife and I particularly enjoyed our meals. The restaurant is on a deck with a fine view of the sea. Service is attentive, the food fresh, and the cooking (both Japanese and Filipino) excellent.
