Nestled beneath the towering, palm tree- cladded mountain which dominates Maripipi island lies the quaintly and tastefully designed Napo Beach resort. The owners, Robert and Emilata, were incredibly helpful and charming throughout the duration of our stay. The food, freshly caught fish, was delectable and cooked by Emilata herself. The rooms were super clean and definitely suited our purpose. Robert was a wealth of knowledge on the Philippines and he helpfully organized a boat to take us to Masbate the next day. He also offered us kayaking and snorkeling in the pristine waters which surround the island. Overall, a really positive experience and I would definitely recommend to fellow travelers.
