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

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.

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.

4 of us stayed at Marmarine over Christmas and had just such a lovely time. Daman and his team are the most friendly and lovely people and they welcomed us so warmly. We played tennis most days, and Daman organised a brilliant game of 'Gate ball' one evening (a kind of cross between croquet and golf). All felt so convivial and friendly! the resort is just beautiful - gorgeous green grounds, right next to a white sandy beach. We stayed in the Hero/Hifumi house which is beautifully designed and right by the sea. The food was super - we loved our Christmas dinner of sushi and coconut milkshakes! Went on a magical hunt for fireflies one evening and had a wonderful day out snorkelling too - just the 4 of us on our own boat with the crew who barbequed chicken out the back of the boat for lunch and led us to the best spots for tremendous snorkelling. Out of our 2 and a half week island hopping holiday, this is the place that will stay with me and that I would want to return to one day.

The resort is old. We stayed in Hiko villa which was nice but it’s actually a bit creepy. The main building where the restaurant is obviously old. The resort doesn’t have generator. We experience power interruption between 11:30PM-2AM then 10AM-5PM. They pnly have one chef. When we ordered food for lunch staffs told us chef is out so everything in the menu is not available. The pathwalk from main road to the resort doesnt have lights so it’s dark when you go out in the night for a stroll.

On the other hand, the staffs are friendly and accomodating. The view is nice.

Most part of the beach has seagrass but the sand is fine and white and secluded.

Love this place. Visited twice, first time nearly 10 years ago. Japanese family owners make it special and have instilled an attention to detail and friendly courtesy to all the staff as well as professionalism. Shout out to their son Taki and Manager Lyka who are charming, professional and make this a very lovely experience. The rooms are charming, the menu very good, ferry boat pick up, motorbike rentals on site, and the beach is right there to enhance magical sounds of the ocean, birds, the breezes and quiet calm ambience.

Let's start with the positive part. The staff..... they are very kind and helpful. Renting a scooter in no time arranging a tricycle taxi all done in a sec.
The food in the restaurant was also tasty, we ate to nights there.
But to be be honest we were quite disappointed with the resort. While booking we saw all the beautiful pictures but in reality the resort is worn out and needs a makeover. The beach in front is not cleaned the coconut trees are dry in the garden and full of coconuts just waiting to fall down so you can't chill there as well anyway you wouldn't find any sun beds.
The room was very clean but as well worn out and the wood needs to be oild and party changed.
I don't think you get yhe value for money in this resort.

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.

Last hotel stop before going back to Dumaguete, after staying on the island for 10 days. I cannot commend enough how excellent the service is, the lovely staff and the hands on owners who made sure we have everything we need. The serene beachside view, lovely dogs and of course the Japanese food. THANK YOU SO MUCH,MR HANADA for the warmest welcome! Highly recomemended hotel!
