We were absolutely amazed at the service And our accomodations. The owners were there to greet us this year and made us feel most welcome. It was off season and the resort was closed for repairs to the pool except for our group of 3. The kitchen staff treated us as royalty. Since this was scuba diving vacation, we had...

My partner and i stayed there and went scuba diving with Mokie. We had a wonderful time. We are due back in the philippines in Feb2017 and we will be booking the place again. We found the staff very friendly and the place is so peaceful. The diving with Mokie was fantastic.

Staff- i will give a 5. They are all friendly and accomodating Place- i will give a 3.5 rating. The facilities are good but lots of mosquitos.

I booked this place based on the photos and great reviews. I didn't expect that we'd be getting more. The staff are the friendliest, food is great, the rooms are cozy. It's a small, quiet place which is just what we needed. Not having a TV in our room also made our stay extraordinary. The quiet nights facing the sea...

We had a fantastic stay at Talima - it was only for one night but it was an amazing place to be. You have to get a boat there so it really does feel like your own personal piece of paradise. There is everything you would want on an island, including snorkelling and diving (which we were told were very...

What a beautiful place to visit. Gorgeous rooms, food and staff. If you're into snorkelling then the sea life is so pretty to see! A diving centre is located just next door so you can do day and night dives too. The staff were amazing, so helpful and polite. Ready to help when ever you needed! We loved it here...

Lovely quite place to relax by the sea with a pool & restaurant. The view is amazing & service is 1st class. It has a dive centre next door with a fish sanctuary right out the front. What an amazing place to relax with no noise & distractions from the outside world.

Staff were very friendly and supportive. We enjoyed going snorkeling everyday for 7days. Snorkeling spot is right in front of the resort you can walk/swim there. No much around the resort but if you want to enjoy snorkeling and relaxing time, I definitely recommend this place.
