Stayed at the Salaya Beach Houses for two consecutive weekends, it was that good! The surroundings are beautiful, the rooms front the sea and the staff are attentive. The food is also delicious. The staff can arrange a beach front dinner for couples or for groups, make sure to try this on one of your evenings at the resort. The house reef right across the resort is also perfect for snorkeling. The downside is the stony beach, make sure to bring aqua shoes or socks.

We recently spent 6 nights at Salaya in celebration for a friends birthday. The dinner hosted by the Salaya kitchen was spectacular to say the least.

The managers Carol and Marc simply went above and beyond to ensure our stay exceeded all of our expectations. All of the staff were very friendly and catered to our every need. The menus were full of many delicious choices and the drinks generous and refreshing. Can highly recommend the Oreo shake!

The beds were clean and catered for a great nights sleep. Accommodation was spacious and also clean.

It was highly convenient having a reef for good snorkelling and paddleboards available right off the beach.

Will definitely be back!

The service at salaya is fantastic someone is always there to make sure you have whatever you want. They make the extra effort to address you by your name and are so welcoming. We had a fantastic time making use of the resorts paddle boards and snorkel gear to check out the marine sanctuary just off the beach. The managers helped to make it a memorable experience with their resident dive expert Marc sitting with us over breakfast and talking to us about the marine life and convincing us to do a boat trip out to Apo island to the turtle sanctuary which was one of the most spectacular things I've seen. There was also a great relaxed vibe around the resort with the managers dogs who were just fantastic! The menu offered choices I wasn't expecting to find in this corner of the world but was pleasantly surprised with the quality and effort put into the dishes. The entire resort is so well maintained with a fantastic staff and attitude. The security was excellent peace of mind. I can't wait to come back Salaya one of my most relaxed trips ever.

Thanks for your feedback Ryan. Great that you made use of the free paddleboarding, and snorkeled on the House Reef in front of the resort, as well as Apo Island.

Our staff work hard to make every guest feel special, so your feedback is appreciated and has been passed on to them. We hope that you do come back again soon! Best wishes from Carol, Marc and all the crew at Salaya Beach Houses.

We stayed 5 nights in Salaya in a superb penthouse ( two rooms each with private bathroom), a large living room and kitchen and a beautiful terrace. This is a boutique hotel so the staff treats you like if you were the only guest in the hotel, every time addressing you with your name. Every thing is exceptional : the property, the location, the nice swimming pool, the quality of the food at the restaurant, the staff and every one of the staff is king, polite, dedicated to make your stay an outstanding vacation, the managers Carol and Marc who are here to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. I completed my scuba experience certificate with Marc who is passionate about diving and a patient teacher. We enjoyed seing marine turtles just in front of the hotel during our scuba dive ! beautiful ! Well, to resume, this is really a beautiful boutique hotel for superb vacations. Once again thanks to all the staff and Carol and Marc who made our vacations such an exceptional time for our family.

Room Tip: the penthouse is outstanding

Pierre, thank you! It was a total pleasure to have you and your family here, and we always get a thrill out of teaching someone to dive. We hope you will be hooked for life!

Your review is outstanding, and very much appreciated by us all here at the resort. Thank you once again! Marc, Carol & all the team at Salaya.
