Just returned from Catanduanes. I was there with family the end of October. The resort: I thought the place is well maintained. We booked the Regina suite (2 BR with one shared bath, kitchenette and living room). My main purpose was to check out the diving in Catanduanes. The rest of the family were there for some fun. Dining: we mostly dined at the resort restaurant as it was rainy. I thought the food was good -breakfast, lunch and dinner. We mail ate ;the loccal food. My only pet peeve is the coffee. I prefer brewed coffee but, I noticed that, in the provinces, they mainly use those pre-packaged coffee mix (which, to me, hardly tasted like coffee at all). Front desk and staffs: No complaints there. They are all very helpful and accommodating. Internet: As in all the province I'd been to, connections can be sporadic specially when it is rainy. There is WIF at the registration area and in the rooms or grounds. Again, it can be sporadic. We found that signal is better on the balcony of our room. However, there are times when signal is good even in the bedrooms. It may all depend on how many users and the weather conditions there. The diving: I did 4 dives with Dave of Catan Divers. They were reef dives; none or very mild current if at all. We did not dive the reefs at Twin Rocks due to poor visibility at the time. We took the banca and went out to 4 different dive sites. All dives were done early in the morning timing the tide. Dave picked me up at the resort at 0600 and we are on the boat by 0700. The dive boat can carry 2 divers without problem, but will be too crowded with more divers. Dave said he uses two dive boats if there are 4 or more divers. Donning BCD is in water. One puts on the weight belt, slide into the water and Dave and his crew assisted with the BCD/tank. Reef and marine life: There were some schooling fish, occasional spade fish, emperor angelfish, moorish idols, etc, Not in abundance but they were present in all the dives... I noticed coral spawning during the day dives (we did not do night dives). This was cool and something new to me. One particular dive site is so extensive and pristine, reminding me of Melissa's Garden at Raja Ampat. Tucked in among the reef is a huge anemone housing hundreds of clownfish. Dave christened this dive site "Nemo City" appropriately. Ask Dave to take you there, if you ever dive in Catanduanes. Overall, I would say the diving is good if you just want to do a weekend of diving. Dave continues to explore the area for more dive sites. He thinks there are mantas and is on a quest to find them. He'd seen dolphins, sharks, and seahorses on his dives. The dive op: Dave is reliable, knowledgeable and well organized. One dives with air (he has an air compressor); No nitrox. He'll prepare breakfast and lunch and take them on the boat. Lunch consisted of pasta, or rice, with an entree and dessert. Dave prepared these himself. He also provided the drinking water as well as soda beverages. Just let him know your preferences. Water temp: I was there end of October. Water was nice and warm. I wore a 3mm wetsuit and rash guard inside. PM me if there are questions about diving at Catanduanes. Dave's contact info is info@catandivers.com I hope to be able to go back and dive some more with Dave.

Rooms have the best years behind them, loud, kids' noise - the internet is very weak and most importantly the reception is poorly oriented in everything, you can not rent a motorbike, nobody knows about sailing boats, it is very hard there and nothing but sitting in a hotel he has something to do - the island tour does not know what it is waiter service not very nice, not very interested in guests, rooms from the outside look better than in the middle - to international standards a lot is missing - maybe it is good for local guests- I do not recommend it

I was here when it was under construction. I was already amazed with that twin rock in the middle of the beach. Reminds me so much of Thailand beach. Our family held a reunion here few years ago and now i am back here again! They have other activities to enjoy like zip line. They also serve food.

A few kilometres away from downtown Virac, Twin Rocks will let you enjoy nature with modern activities to do. The calming effects of the waves as it crashes on the shore makes you reflect of days gone by. Should you feel like eating, their restaurant will provide you with delicious variety of food to eat. A great place to just chill.

Pros: - Free complimentary filipino breakfast for 2 persons. You can upgrade to american breakfast with an additional 50 php only per person - Amazing view of the famous Twin Rock (not really seen from our room despite that being the most expensive room) - Guard do not check what you bring inside (no corkage if you bring in your liquor or outside food) - This place is for BACKPACKERS and ON BUDGET. If you are looking for private and quiet place like me-- this is not for you! Cons: - No complimentary wifi available in rooms. Wifi is only available in the front desk area. If you need internet, sorry but the signal is terrible therefore you need to hang out by the gate or front desk area. - Other that wifi, the mobile signal is also terrible. - There is no phone in the room. You have to call their mobile number to reach the front desk, housekeeping needs, and room service. If you are hungry in the middle of the night, you have to go to the restaurant to place your order if you have an international phone like me. - Locks in the window are not secured. - This place allows day excursions to use pool with small fee (admission fee and pool use fee per person) - Families are bringing pop tents and are putting them in front of other people's guest rooms. Our next door guests have pop tents (to accommodate the number of people they have). - People putting up tables in front of our guest room without asking us if that's okay. These people were drinking and talking so loud at night and even took our room's balcony furniture for their use (NO PRIVACY!!!) - Pop tents are everywhere in this resort. People sleep there instead of paying for rooms. The common area to walk around in the resort were filled with pop tents for these people. - Some guests are grilling and cooking food in their balcony. - Resort shuttle worth 950 php did not pick us up from the San Andres Port. They told us to take tricycle to Virac so they can pick us up( what's the point of getting a shuttle if they can't pick us up) Tricycle from port to resort only costs 350 php. - Rooms are dirty and infested with bugs. Bathroom has bugs crawling in the ceiling. Room service do not come in to your room unless someone is inside the room (Housekeepers do not carry keys therefore they have to wait for you to open the room for them). - Refrigerator can be of use. Just make sure you plug them first. - Lots of staff on training (they were all wearing white shirts and real staff wore yellow shirts) so if you have questions they do not know the answer because they're just on their on-the-job training. - Pool is dirty. It was cloudy and makes you itchy. The pool was a hit to kids not staying overnight in this place. At night, you can see the oily surface of the pool. - Poop were seen on the beach from stray dogs roving around the resort. - The place is not maintained well. There are trash everywhere. I recommend trash cans in every corner of this place. Guests throws their litter everywhere. - If you are using the zipline or zip bike, you have to find staff to assist you. They are not found in their post. You have to wait and ask around to be assisted in this activity. - Kayak is only available in the morning due to tide.
