The place is perfect for a weekend of rest and relaxation. We had fun and appreciated the fact that it wasn't too crowded. The staff were mostly accommodating and professional. To be honest, the only downside was the food. We expected the food quality to be at par with the Tugawe Cove restaurant cooking (especially as the dishes were pricey) but alas, no. The food was bland, unappetizing and uni nspired. They serve food cold except for the soup. That's breakfast, lunch and dinner. The menu was super limited and lacks flair, considering the price. And even if you were already asked to pre-order your meals prior to your trip, they still don't have it ready on time. My family and I aren't big eaters and weren't really there only for the food so we can give it a pass. But if Tugawe management wants to continue to improve, I'd suggest sending your chef to some training to improve their skills. :)

But overall, it was still a great experience for us. :)

We had such an amazing 4-day stay at this resort ! I couldn’t fault the service and how accommodating and polite everyone was. From the Resort Manager Mr. Rio, to Milton and everybody at the resort! More than how beautiful and secluded this little paradise is, it’s the people/staff that really make it. Thank you, Tugawe Cove Resot!

The weather was perfect, it's like the day was made for us guests on that day. Very nice staff from land to boat transfers until arriving at the hotel. Your eyes would fest on turquoise blue waters as you get closer to the place.

Room tip: The hillside cabana would be perfect if you want to just relax and feel the serenity of the place.

The trip was ok.
First, the waiting time at the port, they made us wait for an hour for another passenger. It was unfair for all of us who went there early.
The resort was not as beautiful as I expected. The aircon in our room was not working properly and we cant move to another room coz its fullybooked. The rooms were not properly maintained.
The menu is very limited most of them are not available.

The whole trip and stay at Tugawe was near perfect!

We availed of the roundtrip land and boat transfers. We had the van all to ourselves from Robinsons Naga to Talisay Port. We shared the boat ride from Talisay Port to Tugawe with a wonderful family of 10. The sea was rough and it was raining but we were graced with a wonderful and sunny weather during the rest of our stay.

We got the Hilltop Casita/Cabana Room. The room was very spacious, not in its pristine state but still acceptable and classy. It has a mini fridge (we just discovered it during our second day) and coffee and tea making facilities. The advantage of getting that room is that it's near the resort resto and you can still get 'intermittent' wifi signal from the resto itself. Although, we had a hard time locking the room during our first day. If you're a couple, the Hilltop Cabana Room is great choice since it has a rooftop with reclining chairs where you can stargaze while talking about the mysteries of love and life.

Cecilia's, the resort restaurant, sits on top of a hill. It gives you a very calming vibe that your dining in one with nature. They serve tasty and delicious but quite expensive dishes. Price ranges from 350-700 php, good for 2 persons. Nevertheless, just like everything in Tugawe, you always get what you paid for. Tip: have your breakfast in the veranda overlooking the sea.

The beach is picturesque especially when its sunny and in the afternoon. You can kayak and paddleboard for free. I heard that you could do snorkeling too.

The resort boasts two infinity pool, both of them picturesque and well maintained but I think what they lack were catchy pool lights at night.

A trek to the Lighthouse before the sunset completed our trip. It boasts a scenery that could be compared to Batanes.

After our 3D2N stay, all I can think about is the day that I could go back at Tugawe to rest and relax.

Thank you!

P.S. Kudos to the staff for always being ready to offer free anti seasickness meds!
