We planned for staying in 4 days but after 3 days we decided to leave. The island is full of rubbish, the way to resort is rough. The facility is poor. Only positive thing is food, it is ok but this is 2 star hotel but the price is same with 4 star hotel lol. Don't want to come back...

This resort was great, well maintained, great friendly staff, the rooms were wonderful, And Mokies dive shop next door gave you a good reason to be here (although the reef is pretty lame by comparison to Moalboal or Malapascua) but if your looking for a quick getaway from the brutal pollution in Mactan or Cebu city, Olango island is for...

My wonderful fiancee and I enjoyed three, restful days here. Not a wild and crazy spot, Talima offers peace and tranquility. The staff took care of us impeccably. For both of us, the remote character of Talima is a welcome respite to Cebu City and the urban hub-bub. We have just booked a return visit in April.

Dear Sylvie, thank you for giving us the opportunity to write a few lines in respond to your unhappy review.

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.
