Even though it's been a while since me and my girlfriend visited Modessa, we still carry many great memories from our stay. We arrived on short notice in what we later discovered to be the very start of the high-season. This was in the beginning of October. We were welcomed by many of the staff on site, including lovely May...

I have visited the place when it was name Coco Loco Resort in 2001. The travel from Puerto Princesa is a little bit long. We were greeted by a private driver and we hired him to bring us to Roxas town which is about 4 hours away from Puerto Princesa. Then a boat will bring you to this small island...

(1) Transportation : You need to take a van or bus to a restaurant called "Bottega" in Roxas. It takes about 2.5 hrs from the San Jose New Market Bus Terminal near Puerto Princesa, depends on the driver and vehicle condition. From Bottega Restaurant, someone from the resort will pick you up, taking you to the Roxas Wharf to take...

So far the most relaxing, charming and unique island hideaway I’ve ever been. We enjoyed our stay in a nice tropical somewhat tiki hut nested in the sand dunes, perfect for watching the sunset with a glass of chilled coconut juice. Highly recommended for vacationers who wants peace and serenity that those crowded islands cannot offer. We think our stay...

This charming little island is carved deeply in to our memories for its beauty, remoteness and extreme friendly service. There are coral reefs right next to the shore for those who like to dive/snorkel. Would like to go there again!

We really enjoyed the remote and beautiful place that you can reach only by boat. Be aware that the hotel organize only one trip per day and you have to pay for extra boat trip. Accommodation are simple but good. Just fan to cool air. Cottage have shower with "Salty fresh water. Electricity is provided only night time by a...

We spent 4 nights on the island - and it was paradise! The staff look after the island incredibly well, and they are very attentive to your needs. The water is beautifully clear along the sandy white beach. We stayed along the beach in a little chalet with 2 beds and mosquito nets. The electricity only works between 6pm to...

We spent 3 night's at Modessa and loved the easily accessible snorkeling, beautiful white sandy beaches and cheap cocktails. Our beach hut had the most perfect view, along with a hammock, two lounges and two chairs. It was rather quite during our stay and at times we were the only people in the water or on our side of the...
