Simple, Quiet and Relaxing
It was my first time to visit Siquijor and stayed at Islandia Beach resort. We had a unplanned trip to Dumaguete and I searched for a place nearby where we could stay for two days and relax without needing to spend too much. From the port of Siquijor, we hailed a tricycle to bring us to the resort for P350. We also chartered the same trike for the day tour the following day, and for the trip from the resort back to the port when we would leave Siquijor by the 7th of June. This was our mistake as the resort can arrange this for you and this gives you an assurance that you will not get double charged.
The resort has a restaurant that serves yummy food at an affordable price. On our first night, I ordered Chopsuey and Sinigang and was shocked at the servings. It's really for sharing so if you are the type of people who eat more rice than viands, then order just one dish which we did on the second night.
Oh, and their brewed coffee is one of the best that I've had. And their mango shake is also yummy.
The rooms are clean and spacious. The rooms are more like small houses dotted around the property, so you get a lot of peace, quiet and privacy.
If there is one thing that I would want to be improved, would be the beach area. Probably a sweep of the dead sea grass every now and then would make the view more pleasnt. By the way, if you wish to swim I suggest early morning or late afternoon or night when the tide is high. The beach in front is rocky.
But overall, we enjoyed our stay and would definitely go back.
