Very nice resort on a tiny island close to Palawan/Roxas. Very very nice servicestaff and especially Simon keeps things going with his friends. Always ready to help with a smile and quick reply-his humor makes the world go around. Management: take good care of him! The food is fine and varies after your choice - sometimes buffet. Very good breakfast...

You have to make do with what you get! Once a backpacker retreat but seems to have tried to go a bit more upmarket with some of their accommodation. Staff friendly and try to be helpful but various forces in place which hampers them. Shown a very full menu on arrival which looks good but the choice us always limited...

Modessa Island is a small island ( Sand bar !) reached by a half hour boat ride from Roxas. Pick up times vary to suit the lodge. It can accommodate +/- 50-70 guests in various hut styles and is fully inclusive of all meals. Power is on all night and at lunch time but the internet is atrocious. A small...

The island is really amazing. Peaceful. The bungalows are direct on the beach so its really romantic. However the food is really really bad, which brings down the rating.. They are often out of food so you have very limited choices. One night one girl who was vegetarian only could eat rice and cucumber and tomatoes. You also need to...

The beach is a dream! Wonderful coral sand, clear water. We say in the still warm water, drinking a beer watching the sunset, whilst fish swam and jumped around us and sea birds hunted... truest magical. Great snorkelling also. Salt water showers, annoying, but I just filled a bottle with fresh water from the dispenser and rinsed with it after...

Pros: Stunning stunning beach and location. So peaceful. Good snorkelling and diving. Easy to meet people with a community feel and chilled vibe. Cons: Toilet is manually flushed. No air con so can get very hot. Food is bland/limited with small portions. After a few days it can get quite boring. ビーチは最高に綺麗です、静かで落ち着くにはとっておきのロケーションです。ただ食事オプションが少ないので3泊以上する事はおすすめできません。

A lovely island with a great atmosphere. Easy snorkeling from the beach. Two different spots. On the left beautiful coralls and fishs on the other side of the small boat landing space fish swarms and giant clams. Just amazing. Cottage in front row (left from the reception) just fine, during the day a bit sunny, but the hammock is great....

That was by far the best island experience I've ever had. A fantastic getaway with very nice staff. The cottages are very basic but super clean with only salty cold water. When you step outside you have the nicest beach right in front of you. They only offer full board which has different options you can choose from. Good choices...

We are a couple that enjoyed the island in our own way, while she readed a book under the palms or the sun on the beach in front of our cottage, i dived with Aldrin the masterdive and two costumers more. We enjoyed together the snorkelling in the reef and when my girlfriend was tired i continued snorkelling for a...
