Great food, air-conditioned rooms with plenty of space, wifi, courteous staff and a hard-working and highly engaged proprietor. Perfect for divers, The diving in the bay and surrounds is exceptional.

In just over 12 months Scott has managed to transform this scratchy accommodation into an elegant and secluded getaway resort. Great for couples and families. He and his staff run a class outfit that eschews and over the top party vibe in favour of luxury and relation, at an affordable price. Good is of very high quality too. Only problem...

Stayed here for 3 days and I am now regretting why we didn't stay longer. The staff were really nice and helpful. The owner...

Stayed here for one night and it was amazing! Everything was excellent; the room, the food and the service. When we arrived it was the owner, Scott, who was at the reception area. Since there were only a few guests, we had a chance to have a look on the different types of rooms they had until we decided to...

My hubby and I decided to spend our honeymoon just a little after Christmas in his little hometown. Since I got fairly not-so-good reviews about Antulang recently, I decided to risk it with Cove Sands since this was under "new management". And boy, was it an unregretful decision! We totally loved the quiet place offered by this humble resort. It's...

I checked in on a Monday and stayed for 2 nights in their beach cottage. There was only one other guest there during my stay so I must say that it was very quiet and relaxing, just what I was looking for. The staff was very friendly and attentive.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Under new ownership now since November 2016 Cove Paradise Beach & Dive Resort (formerly Cove Sands Beach) has undergone many changes and improvements is the perfect vacation haven for the entire family. Located just 40 km drive from the local airport, north of the sleepy town of Siaton, Negros Oriental. Nestled on a secluded cove lies the peaceful and beautiful Cove Sands Beach Resort. We have various native style cottages made of Nipa, Bamboo and local materials, and cottages of conventional build all with aircon which all face the blue waters of the Bohol sea. Each cottage has a large porch to watch the local fishermen sail their small Bangka boats out for the nightly catch. The string of a hundred lights fill the horizon as they cast their nets. Snorkel our scenic cove, or have a dive in our newly renovated pool or just simply unwind and enjoy one of the most beautiful sunsets in Negros. Cove Paradise Beach and Dive Resort is a cozy place to spend a quiet time by the beach. ... more   less
