If your thinking of high end resorts then dont go here... Medina is a small town and this place is on the rate of average. But if you just happen to be here then spend some quality time with your family on a nice quiet beach with a great view. They also have a glass boat so you could look...

Medina is a sleepy town and when in the area the best place to stay would be Duka Bay Resort. Good points: The best thing about the place would be it's amazing sunrise & sunset views as well as it's crystal clear waters. The fact there is also a spring nearby makes the water even better. Food is good and...

The best thing I like about Duka Bay is the clear, clean beach water which is a blend into spring water and the saline of the sea. It's kind to the skin and sunburn is less likely when compared to other beaches. The spring generously pours out into the beach and some oozes out from the beneath the shoreline which...

We spent our day off here recently. There is not much actual beach. Food Service is good. The diving service was fantastic. There is one PADI instructor. The resort could use a few chaise lounges. They had just a few chairs.

Take a breather from the hustle in the city and enjoy the peaceful and relaxing beach. The resort has cottages along the shore and also big rooms for the family to spend quality time together. Better bring along some good food or snacks since restaurant has limited choices

After having a long fun filled day at the Dahilayan Adventure and Forest Park we drove a couple of hours to this resort and had three Junior Suite rooms for the entire family. The photos and videos are of only one room however, they all look the same. The cost is close to $68 with 44 to 1 exchange rate,...

It was my first time to experience the clear waters and live coral reefs of Duka Bay. We stayed in a junior suite, it spacious with a veranda in it. We tried the glass boat and was amazed by the life underwater. The place was wonderful with a lot of water activiities to choose from.
