Wanna get away from the harsh city life? Hop in to olango island and head here. Just perfect. Staff are friendly and you can totally relax here. Too bad I'm only up for a few hours. Affordable walk in rate/ plus food is affordable too. Not much tourist!! And that's how I like it...

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.

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...

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...
