Been here last year. (late review :p). Service is ok. Not that overwhelming. But the beach view is a bit fantastic. Clear beach with so much jellies so be very careful. Food serve is ok. Not that very fascinated. I hope comfort room will be renovated at least.

My husband and I went to Magalawa Island - Armada Resort for a daytour. It was part of a package (Magalawa-Potipot Tour) which we availed of from a travel agency. Good thing it was just a daytour in Magalawa Island - Armada Resort. My husband went for a swim, the water was clear and he found some starfish but there...

I've been here last summer and it was a great experience. The water is very clean and clear. and there are many starfish on its shoreline. Don't forget to bring your snorkeling goggles or flippers if you want to have the best experience. There's also a boat rental that will take you to coral areas of the island. Although one...

Stayed at one of their beachside fan cottages. They served decent food. For entertainment, they have a banana boat. They also offer snorkeling gear but if you want to do any serious snorkeling, bring your own gear. (The island has electricity and a potable water supply.) By the way, there are two resorts on Magalawa Island -- Armada and Ruiz....

You wouldn't experience what the island has to offer if it's only for a day trip. My son and I opted to a land travel for a getaway and landed in Magalawa island. We stayed there for 3 days, right at the beach front. No wifi, no TV however with AC and bathroom. Owners are accommodating. I was given a...

It is my second time in Armada resort and I'm still loving how the island feels. Our overnight plan was turned in to a 3days 2nights stay because we can't get enough of the tranquility of the place. Again, if you are looking for peace, quiet, and quality time, you'll definitely find it here. They have these 3 new hats...

Due to Summer all beaches and resorts are fully booked last April 2 and 3, 2016 so we have no choice but to check other beach that can accommodate us. We found this Magalawa Island and we booked for overnight. This Magalawa Island is good but do not expect too much its very untidy island due to over populated and...

We wanted to try these islands in Zambales -- Magalawa & Potipot. Pero since mas malapit ang Magalawa, dito nalang kami. If you've been to Boracay, Caramoan, Palawan etc., don't expect too much. Why no choice? Kasi yung Ruiz (kabilang resort) na mas maganda review at sumasagot sa inquiries, eh wala pang aircon rooms. Hehe! Kaya dito kami sa Armada....
