The hotel is on the seashore, has its own restaurant and some deck-chairs. Sea entrance is good, however very fleet even on a high tide. The staff is nice. We had a Standard room which is absolutely unadvisable. It's under the suites and very dark. It's almost no fresh air inside and impossible to air the room. A/C is very...

Sorry, we have to charge you for everything from towels to extra water because we do not have many guests, our place is not as good as it use to be, we are trying to fix that

Traveling through some of the islands and stopped by Bantayan for a few days. I loved staying at this resort. The staff here were gracious and quick to look after all my needs - cannot say enough good things about them. The room was clean, the bed was very comfortable, and the A/C and wifi both worked perfectly, which was...

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary in Cebu and we went to Bantayan Island as we wanted to see and experience the beauty of their white beach at Sta. Fe. It was an indeed amazing experience especially staying at The Coral blue resort. Cottages are made from bamboos that looks very native and surrounded by beautiful Palm trees. They...

All in all- it's awesome! By the time we arrived at Sta.Fe Port, someone from the Coral Blue meet us and let us ride in their tricycle- which is for free. 7minutes ride and we arrived. We were welcomed with a drink and a shell necklace which is awesome! After we settled our account, they showed us directly to our...

A great resort with an island way feel. White sand, bamboo cottages, great foods in and around the resort. Nice staffs and a nice ambrience. The resort is also near the port and is about 30 minutes from the poblacion. It is located in Sta. Fe, Bantayan Island, Cebu.

We totally enjoyed our stay at Coral Blue. We got villa with two bedrooms, living room and terrace with amazing view. It's perfect place to relax. Staff was so friendly and helpful. There was any disappointment moment about this hotel. It was definitely much better than I expected! Foods in restaurant was so delicious and not expensive as for me.

We found this hotel perfect for our stay on Bantayan Island. The staff were very friendly, effiecint and helpful. Our room was a basic room on the ground floor. It was clean and well presented with a serviceable bathroom and everything was working as expected. The bed was comfortable and there was no noise to keep us awake at all....

My husband and I spent 5 nights at Coral Blue in Bantayan Island. The sorrounding area seems like a small sleepy village and is just stunning. I am unsure if this was because we travelled in the beginning of the rainy season (mid May) and there was less tourists than usual but the beaches were quiet and generally not many...

This place is awesome. I loved it from the crown of my head to the soles of my feet. It's about 5 minutes from the Ferry and the minute you arrive, you are greeted by two lovely ladies that put necklaces on you and give you a welcome drink. We were early and our room wasn't ready, but we were...
