Resort Review: Beach Placid Resort, Bantayan Island, Cebu

While at Bantayan, we chose to stay at Beach Placid Resort. They were offering free transfers to and from Santa Fe Pier. We texted them the departure time of our ferry and when we arrived at Bantayan Island, the van was already waiting for us. The driver asked for P10 from us for the parking fee.

???????????????????????????????

???????????????????????????????

Prior to arrival at Bantayan, we already had our reservation and they required us to pay 10% downpayment for the room reservations. So when we arrived at the resort, we paid first the remaining balance during check-in.

???????????????????????????????

They offer services like island hopping and land tour. Although the prices were listed at a huge board, you can bargain for a discount. People outside the resort (non-Beach Placid staff) were also offering island hopping at a lower price, sometimes half the price listed on the board.

???????????????????????????????

The resort has bar and restaurant but they were not open 24 hours. They were open only until 10PM.

???????????????????????????????

Our room was Beach Front –  Triplex Room.

Below are the pictures inside the room:

Low season rate P1800 / Hi-season rate  P2000/ Holy week and Easter P5000.
