The food is very expensive. Imagine a kilo of Tilapia is 1,000 and crabs at 1,800. Aside from the price, food was serve cold. Dont ever attempt visiting this restaurant , you will just get disappointed. I even advise the cashier to tell the owner to review their pricing since they can not expect repeat customers like us. They also...

The place looks nice, but the waiters are not friendly, i cannot believe that they charge you 10% service charge, you have to walk from your table just to ask for water from the waiter. if you are not with a foreigner, or not a foreigner they will not treat you well. the food is overpriced and it does not...

The price of the food in this place is very expensive. I don't know why it has no competition around the area that why I think the food is very expensive. But we have no choice there's no other place to eat. Just a reminder: be aware because they have a table charge of I think 10-15% so that adds...

All the hotels in Lucap Wharf are simple in appearance and Maxine By The Sea is no exception. It's primarily a restaurant but also has 7 rooms for overnight stays. We spent our 3 days 2 night stay at their hotel. The front desk was accommodating and although there was just 1 roll of toilet paper in the bathroom, we...

Super overpriced. Spent a thousand bucks for an average meal for two. One small grilled tilapia costed us 200 pesos! And it was dry!!! Waited for almost an hr. The serving of water took 20 mins, when we were the only guests at the restaurant. The prices are not worth what you will be served.

We tried a few of the hotels in Lucap and this is maybe one of the better ones. Still not very good though. What we liked a lot is their intention of keeping it clean and the nice personell. The rooms are uninspiring. The food was the reason we stayed here instead of in the hotel next door that we...

A nice clean hotel by Lucap Wharf. Air conditioning worked well and the room was large. The hotel, restaurant and grounds front onto the water but there was no view of the 100 islands or water from the room.

I came here without making a prior booking in order to see the nearby Hundred Islands national park. The cost of the room for one night was 2100 pesos, which is far more than I'd normally pay in the Philippines, however there was not much other choice. In any case, the room was clean and well equipped with a nice...

I have actually been to "Maxine by the sea" several times throughout the years but this is the first time I am giving a review of the place. To start off, the accommodation is pretty decent, nothing fancy, spacious rooms that are clean, with bathrooms and cable TV. For me, the main reason for coming to visit 100 Islands in...

Small hotel whose rooms are spacious and clean. The bathrooms look like they have just been renovated so they are clean and spacious as well. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The food takes forever to cook but is pretty good.
