            Diamond in the rough”

            We came by ferry from Cebu City to Tagbilaran, to Larena Siquijor... It was a four hour journey as opposed to a seven or eight hour trip through Dumaguete to Siguijor… When arriving at Oceanlife, we were greeted by staff members who took our bags, and we were given a welcome drink... We were there a little early... 2pm is the normal check in time for hotels and resorts in the Philippines... I noticed that the grounds were well maintained with beautiful flora, and fauna.. The rooms were spacious, and very clean... The A/C worked very well... There is an indoor/outdoor comfort room with hot water shower.... Outdoors is a small gym, and a pool... One of the maintenance workers vacuums, and cleans the pool daily... The Restobar has good food, with both Philippino, and international dishes... The staff are all helpful, and friendly.. They will accommodate you for anything, spotlight advice, scooter rental... It is also a dive center... The owner Manuel is a Master diver..

            Good food and staff. Recommendable room condition. Maybe divers' excellent choice (I don't dive though). but a little far from tourists' street and diners. Close to Siquijor Port, far from Larena Port(300-400 peso by tricycle).

            Small hotel targeted at divers. Although we were not divers, we were treated splendidly. Just a wonderful wonderful staff. So friendly and helpful in every way possible. The small and intimate restaurant was also excellent. Try the pizza... Will definitely be staying there again next time in Siquijor. Once again, cannot say enough about the delightful, friendly and helpful staff.

            we stayed here for 4 nights in one of the really nice bungalows. we were 3 persons, a extra bed is no problem. the dive equipment is brand new and we had a LOT of fun with the staff and the owner! if you need something they will definitley help you with bookings, transports and everything else. And the food was outstanding! thank you for one of the best stays so far :)

            We were taken from the harbor and returned. Shipboard tickets were also organized. The rooms were clean. The breakfast was very pleasant to us, and the dinners in the restaurant were tasty. The service was very friendly. Local meals could be more in the menu. Ivy always helped us ... organized motorbikes, ordered a massage for us. A very comfortable and very friendly resort.

            hard to find something to complain about at this little resort. maybe just the room was just a little pricier than i wanted to spend per night, but it does include a free breakfast, nice food/pizza, and very attentive staff... i like to visit again,,,, thank you

            Must stay here!”

            Loved this place, the setting is just beautiful, lovely rooms and a very pretty pool. All the staff were so attentive and couldn’t do enough for you. We went on a snorkelling trip which was fabulous, we were taken to lots of great spots and even saw sea turtles - thanks the the keen eyes of the staff with us. The boss man couldn’t have been nicer, lots of time for his guests, happy to chat and give advice, directions and anything else you wanted. Would recommend anyone to stay here!

            My son and I ended up here when weather left us stranded on Siquihor unexpectedly. The owners and staff were SO helpful and went above and beyond to help us get settled and then on our way. I would highly recommend this place!! Best experience of my 2 weeks in the Philippines.

            Lage kann nicht schlechter sein”

            Die Ausstattung der Zimmer ist mehr als mager. Offenes Bad, sprich kein Dach. Lage ist sehr nah an einer Disco. Ist viel zu weit vom Strand entfernt. Eine private Party war auch noch laut und lang. Das Frühstück ist sehr schlecht und einfach. Der Safe funktionierte auch nicht. Das einzig was gut war, der Diveguide und das Tauchen, war richtig gut.
