I absolutely loved my 4 day stay here in Whispering Palms resort. With the beautiful ocean view, really nice rooms with air-con, bikes that are free for your use, and aesthetics of the palm covered grounds, I could almost give this place a 5 out of 5 rating. HOWEVER, I do not recommend coming here if you are traveling on...

Well, this is is not recommended if you're looking for something cheap. A high maintenance resort. Expensive. Like $$. Hahaha. Good thing when we're here is that we were in group. Of not, you'll spent about 3k (includes your room for an overnight stay, food and fare). However, you'll somehow forget how much you spent tho. Because the place is...

The people of Sipaway are just so lovely. The resort has bikes that you can borrow and explore the many villages of the island. Make sure you do this because you see real island life. The children are just so happy and accepting. We really enjoyed our three days at the resort. The only negative was that when we booked,...

Quiet, serene, beautiful views and a zoo is what youll get a whispering palms, we loved our night here. Good service for food, and good selection, theres wi-fi, gym, and a mini zoo with monkeys and a crocodile. After dark all sorts of animals come out, giant millipedes, giant crabs to name but a few, and a short walk away...

I can't add much to the other reviews, just quick note on diving. The dive-sites around Sipaway are quite nice - e.g. the marine conservation area feels like one big aquarium. From the rarer creatures you can expect to see pygmy seahorse, sume nice nudibranches - all in all, slightly above average destination (the house reef is well worth the...

Definitely one of the nicest resorts I have visited in the Philippines. The accomodation is spread around the attractive gardens, together with games facilities and a swimming pool. The island location (easily reached by pump boat from San Carlos) creates a relaxing away-from-it-all atmosphere. Our deluxe room had no TV, reinforcing that feeling, but there is free wifi for those...

We came here last summer with the whole family. The rooms are huge, clean, comfortable and Cheap. The place itself is nice with the mini zoo, bar, bike etc. they have a pool too. The only down point is the beach area as it is surrounded by mangroves. We went for a swim in other area. Restaurant is good but...

A very warm and friendly german (Berlin) Manager leads a perfect Philippines Team of service stuff. The food is Filipino style and delicious. It's also a perfect start to dive, you've here a diving base with house reef. The apartments and bungalows are big, clean and comfortable. They have VIP Service Pic you up from San Carlos City harbour. And...
