The whole family have wonderful experience, from toddler up to grandma… superb as the moment we arrived in the resort… All the staff are very accomodating… the food, the views, the rooms are all thumbs up… Plus our day 2 experience island hopping that everyone should not be missed … the relaxing view at the Light house and our dinner at the beachfront that lights up by bonfire must add in your bucket list…

I left my heart at Tugawe Cove Resort we want to go back again.

It's beautifully located.

CLEANLINESS: our rooms were very clean, the place as well. It just needs a bit of restoration and they are slowly renovating the cabins so it's headed to the right direction!

FOOD: The food was very good! We went for the Bicol delights. We had to preorder food so that it's served on our preferred time. The first day it was a little delayed but otherwise, no issues throughout the stay.

ACTIVITIES: there are free kayaks, snorkeling gear, trip to the lighthouse. There were so many guests that weekend that they ran out of snorkeling gears but it's ok cause we still got to use two!

ISLAND HOP was great. We got lucky with a great weather despite the rainy season. It was so fun!

The best for last,
SERVICE: SUCH AN AMAZING SERVICE!!! The staff are amazing, ALL OF THEM. It was the best part of our trip. We felt at home. The staff were fully attentive, respectful and Genuine.

Shout out to Gee, Edson and Jay!

It was my second time and it was again a great stay. I highly recommend.

We booked this resort after seeing a promotional off peak season sale which costs us about Php 8,500 per night for a hilltop cabana to fit our family of 5.

Here are some things that I didn't like during our stay:

- 2 hours of boat ride from talisay port to the resort would tire you out and the loud noise coming from the engine would deafen you ears. Be ready for earplugs to and from the resort as they don't provide one.
- prepare yourselves to a lot of walking on steep stairs (196 steps) back to your hotel rooms after swimming from the beach.
- our room has this moldy stench. wallpaper was peeling. Air-condition was not enough to make the room cold even when put into max settings.
-food was unpredictable. It would sometimes be served cold and it would take almost an hour before being served even if you've pre-ordered already. minsan masarap minsan sakto lang.
-Cellular data can only accommodate text and call. They have wifi in the restaurant but it cannot handle data hogging apps like fb. Zoom meetings/ calls are also impossible to make. We would get a strong connection from time to time but only for a short amount of time.
-the swimming pools need a lot of cleaning. They were full of leaves and insects. Water was blurry too.
-the beach has an abundant amount of washed up corals which hurts our feet when walking along the shoreline.

Some of the things I liked during our stay:

-island hopping, which was kinda pricey at 7k, was the highlight of our stay. They will be providing you with a personal tour guide (hi Jacky!). Having our lunch at matukad island's powdery white sand was the best!
-Staff were very friendly and accommodating
-sightseeing at the lighthouse before sunset
-magnificent view of islands
-peaceful surroundings
-kayaking over crystal clear blue waters

Room tip: For a family of 5, they recommended the hilltop cabana.

We booked 2 rooms for a 3D2N stay and the resort was always in touch leading to our stay, especially regarding the boat transfer and our pre-order meals. The 2 hour boat trip to the resort was thankfully uneventful with the calm sea, and we are already in awe of the picturesque scenery along the way.

There was a hiccup on which rooms we were going to stay, giving us 2 different room keys. One room had a broken AC and the cable only had 1 channel, so I requested to transfer to a new room, which the resort swiftly did. The room I was staying in had a leaky toilet valve, which was not fixed even after the maintenance guy came to look at it and never returned as he promised to replace the valve.

Besides the leak, the rest of the resort looks great. There are a lot of opportunities for great pictures: the infinity pool overlooking the bay, viewdeck behind the restaurant, the stairs leading to the beachfront, and the beach itself! We found a number of geckos/lizards roaming the beach and "relaxing" by the pool - adding to the authentic natural atmosphere. However, there were few trash that weren't thrown properly.

For the activities, we went for island hopping and that alone made our stay worth it. Due to inclement weather, we started late and we decided to forego the 3rd and last island to return to the resort to have lunch. We also went to the games room to play billiards, chess, darts and giant Jenga. However, the game room was too hot and we can't play there for long.

For the food, it was excellent. We ordered several dishes like pork sisig, pork sinigang, fish sinigang, beef pares, fried chicken, bicol express, crabs. and more! We loved them all, except for the beef pares which was a bit tough.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay in Tugawe, and we would love to come back. Hopefully, the minor issues we encountered with our rooms will be addressed. I highly recommend the resort for anyone looking for a scenic and comfortable stay in Bicol without being too pricey. Bicol has so much to offer with its natural beauty and this resort will help boost its popularity.

The place is majestic and the staff are nice, but here some issues I observed during our stay, boat transportation was almost 1 hr delayed and the food menu was limited and pricey. Island hopping packages was also pricey.
