One of the best holidays I have ever had.
The house was perfect - basic and rustic, but had everything we needed. We didn't touch the aircon once relying on the fans and sea breezes.
The grounds and beach were well kept daily.
Elsa and all the staff were wonderful and so helpful. Everything was done for us. We didn't have to think which is perfect for a relaxing holiday.
We ate like royalty having some of the finest seafood dishes you could hope for........and are now on self imposed diets having eaten way too much!!!
The costs were all open book, so you knew what you were spending based on what you wanted.
Why go to a resort, when you can have your very own private paradise.
We will be back many times again.

This was the best holiday I have ever had in my life. White beach, stunning views and a very nice service included! We were treated like local and thats what our holiday made so special. No dull touristic holidays, but something special! Whether young or old, couple or solo, group or family. I recommend this place every one who want to experience something special!

We definitely come back!!!

For many years now I have had the pleasure to stay here, and with the latest upgrade of La Concha the place has become even more exclusive, still having the sence of being on an uninhabited island, whilst savoring the Filipino hospitality and excellent service offered.

“Paradise on Samal Island”
Reviewed October 26, 2011 for a stay in October 2011

Lorna's sister, Elsa, took great care of us during our stay. She organized a trip to the local falls where our eight year old twins jumped off the rocky falls into the pools below. Great fun! The food was wonderful. We just gave the cook money and some idea of what we liked to eat and she made it happen. The kinalaw was out of this world...as good as the best ceviche I've ever had in Mexico. On my birthday, Elsa organized a roast pig...wonderful! Though if you are squeeminsh, I recommend you asking that they do the slaughter before they bring the pig to the house! A man from the neighboring village roasted the pig for us for a small fee and a couple shots of the local fire water,.

The children 3, 5. and 8 & 8 had loads of fun looking at the local sea life...hermit crabs, crabs, starfish, sea urchins, fish, jellies, sea squirts, sea snails, etc. We took walks at low tide to explore the neighboring area's sea life. We brought along an inflatable boat and a kite--both which were well used. They do have one big innertube and two little ones for the guests to use. They also brought us out for a ride on the banca which was a hit with the kids. The kids enjoyed the spagetti, pancit canton, and fresh grilled fish. Of course we ate mangos, bananas and pineapples like there was no tomorrow! The friend bananas the cook made were entirely too delicious for me to stop eating!

We stopped at the supermarket on the way to the house to stock up on some provisions like beer, cereal, soft drinks, napkins, shampoo, and soap. Elsa brought us to the market on Samal Island one day where we bought chicken, fish and more fruit and veg and visited her favorite local bakery. Amazing chiffon cake and the peanut butter tastes like candy.

There are no international ATMs on Samal Island, so stock up on your pesos before getting to the Island.

Other than the excursion to the falls (near The Pearl Farm), we didn't go on any outings. The road is quite bumpy for 1/2 hour from the house to the main paved road, so it's not such a comfortable ride. If anyone is prone to car sickness, bring Dramamine.

There is no WiFi but my husband was able to use his Blackberry to get emails, I assume on 3G. There is a TV with DVD player, but we never watched. My kids were either playing in the water or on their multiple i-devices. The grown-ups did lots of reading. I brought my yoga mat and did yoga in the living room. My husband ran the distance of a marathon around the island buying water at the little shops as he went by.

There were plenty of bugs and mosquitoes as you would expect. That's what Deet's for.

I'd recommend this to anyone who isn't over 6ft tall. The beds might be a bit short for such a tall person.
