I was only planning to stay in Camiguin for four days to do the free dive course at the resort...but that turned into a couple of weeks. This place has such a chill, laid back vibe you turn into mush within days from being so relaxed. The sunsets from here can be matched by nothing, everyone stops what they're doing...

We had an amazing stay at the secret cove, also called "kurma" and under new management of the amazing Valerie and Deeke. They were so welcoming and helpful, totally made us feel like home. The room was so nice- steps away from the beach, clean, beautifully decorated with this charming beachy vibe. Excellent shower, aircon and even cable t.v (which...

Stayed here for one night with a friend two weekends ago. The place is currently transitioning following its new management and there was an ongoing photo and video shoot while we were there. My friend booked a room with two beds, but because their online details haven't been updated yet (hence the shoot) we were initially welcomed into a room...

PROS: Location is great - near the airport, White Beach, Ardent Hot Spring, restaurants and bars (don't expect too much though). Room is spacious enough and the decorative details look nice. Bathroom is clean. Service is great. Food is okay. CONS: Cleanliness - I saw some long hair on the bed under the blanket upon checking when we arrived. Big...

First off I don't know who writes this reviews . It's not real . The owner doesn't tell you they have a large German Shepard dog guarding the property at night . And when you pass by the reception which happens to be very dark with no lighting when the owners leave, you could easily get mutilated by a dog...

“The room does not have a TV. They have a note left on every room though; they do not allow bringing of food that are not bought in the restaurant. So if you are planning to buy some fresh catch fish or seafood, you might wanna think twice or eat it somewhere else. ”
