This place is only 2hrs away from Bacolod. Very accessible and commuting is not a problem. Accommodations are decent and budget friendly. You may want to consider wearing aqua shoes because of there are lots of starfish wish can be very painful when stepped on. Also, not much to do on the island. No wifi, an on-again, off again signal... More

We took a day trip to Lakawon Island Resort during our Bacolod vacation. If you're staying at Bacolod City, you can ride a jeepney to Bata and ask the driver to drop you off at the Northbound Terminal (Ceres). Ask for the platform for all buses going to Cadiz. The entire 1hr & 30mins trip to Cadiz will cost you... More

If you're up for a day trip to the beach while in Negros, then Lakawon is the best option. It's the closest white beach from Bacolod. An hour and a half ride from Bacolod or an hour from the Silay-Bacolod airport, plus a 30 min boat ride going to the island. Currently, development is ongoing in the island. It has... More

We booked 2 Pearl's Place Room beside each other but we were given 2 rooms that were not beside each other because they gave the room we booked to somebody else. The place is nice but there is nothing much you can do in the island other than swimming on the beach, unless you want to pay extra for a... More

If you hate travelling long hours, this isn't the place for you. An hour and a half or so bus travel then another 20-30 mins tricycle ride to cadiz then another 15-20 mins. boat ride to the island. The place has a great potential but it definitely needs more improvement on infrastructure and facilities. The management needs to have a... More

I suggest this resort for DAYTOURS ONLY. Value for money??? This is not the place. Everything is wrong!!! Where to start...1) Stayed for one night at the Pearl's place. For the price of the room, I expected there would be a C.R.(toilet) in the room. NO hooks are even present in the room nor in the communal toilet/shower rooms!!! 2)... More

The place is away over rated, complete frustration when you arrive at the ferry, pay the free and wait how long or just an idea no just wait, finally call your name every one is trying to get on the boat at the same time because they can only take 20 passengers at the time, but than it is not...

It stated in their signages as:" Lakawon Island Resort and Spa": They don't have a spa or even plans to built one. Marketing officer does a good job of making social media, deceiving its customers, which is a no no in this kind of field. The pearl's place rooms that cost 3500 per room doesn't have its own comfor rooms... More

Their outrigger boat from the mainland to the island will not depart unless it is packed with passengers. The pearls place rooms share toilets and showers with around 10 other rooms. No private toilets for pearls place rooms. Very unprofessional staff. Definitely not coming back

I like the island itself since i love all forms of nature. But, i think the structures on the beach were not well-planned and landscaped. And well, a bit too pricey you have to pay at every turn. The management must keep the whole island clean and rubbish free since people would love to take a walk around the small... More
