Fantastic resort with exclusivity and diving location
Reviewed 1 week ago

We stayed 8 days at the BBL property. First best decision made. Second best decision is diving with #BBLDivers. Booked a waterfront king size room.

First the caveats.
This resort is all about experience. And we were not disappointed.
A relatively exclusive resort. With a price and remoteness to back that up.
But the total experience, peace and tranquility more than made up for these.
5 stars all the way.

The entire experience from booking to arrival--> transport --> stay --> activities --> departure are all seamless and relatively hassle free.
If you are looking at avoiding crowds, having a peaceful and yet fun filled activities with your love ones. Paired with great food, service and exclusivity. This is the place.
For the budget conscious and party loving folks. This might be a bit of a stretch.

Yes it is relatively far away from the town. Yes it's island packages are more expensive. But they absolutely have the experience high service level to justify it. We were so impressed with the island hoping crews that we gave them a tip (not recommended). That is on top of the not so cheap package. Because it was really good experience.

For the island hoping, they tend to keep the headcount for the trips low. And as they are using their own speed boats, the time spent at each site is sufficient for explore. They also provided the snorkelling equipment free of charge. Really really good lunch on a remote island with fantastic scenery.

The service staffs and crews are all very service oriented and seem genuinely happy with their management. We've asked.

Great food and liquids. They have 2 restaurants. Pavilion serves excellent western-Filipino fusion. And Seahorse serves Italian. Check with the service staff if there are certain off the menu items that you want them to prepare. Aglio olio is not on the menu. Nonetheless they know how to make a good one. Very generous and high quality burger on the menu. Ask if they have any specials (not on the menu) for the day.

Did I mention about the dive shop in the resort? Apparently, they own their own dive shop. This was not clear in the marketing materials. The dive shop belongs to the hotel. And its not an external affiliation to other dive shops in the area. Outstanding experience diving with #BBLDivers. In tune with the resort's exclusivity, they also tend to keep the headcounts low. With their own speed boats and very close access to the islands' best diving sites. I was able to maximise my diving time and less of travelling. Jennie, Louie and crew also gave us the attention and professionalism expected of a great time. Me and my partner are both very appreciative of the great time spent at the resort and dive shop. Outstanding experience!!!

The best!!

We had the awesomest stay welcomed by all their helpful and down to earth staff!! Tried out their fine dishes and picks at the Pavilion restaurant and it's all worth the price as they served bountiful servings of it and by far most superb meal in quality and taste in Busuanga! Even the Island tour was amazing as they have a very helpful and accommodating tour guide!!! Rooms are cleaned daily and the view from our balcony was just wow!! :) 3 days is not enough to explore and relax to this place!! Definitely one of the best place to stay in Busuanga!

Amazing Staff and Breathtaking View
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We were beyond blessed when me and my friends were given another chance to stay at BBL and once again it's for FREE. YAY!. Just like the first time, we had the most amazing experience in this hotel. We were treated like VIP the moment we arrived and even when we left the hotel. The staff were very accommodating and one of the reasons why we enjoyed our stay in the hotel. We were treated with free cookies each day with sweet message :) On our first day we took a nap on their lounge chairs near the bay. It was the most relaxing feeling ever. We also enjoyed their infinity pool and took some amazing photos. Don't miss the Happy Hour at Seahorse Grill and order their Blue Cheese Fries (the best). Their complimentary breakfast is absolutely delicious and their coffee is my favorite. Lastly, I want to commend their service on how they handled the small accident my friend had. They were alert and responded very well. They took us to the hospital and made sure my friend was okay. All in all our stay was truly one for the books. My only regret is we were not able to join their Island tour at South Cay but just one reason to go back, yeah? Thank you so much BBL for giving me and my friends the best summer!

P.S. I was also touched and surprised when there was an additional bed in our room for my friend. I knew it was not part of our room accommodation.

You should NOT stay in this Hotel!

The hotel has an excellent structure, a beautiful view of the pool and good staff.

If you want to stay for several days without leaving the hotel and without touring the islands this is a good hotel to stay at.

But the hotel is VERY far from everything and unlike some hotels where this happens they don’t offer free transportation and still charges a high price for the transfer to the city!

In addition, the hotel charges ABUSIVE prices for tours in the Coron Islands. The price of group tours are 5-6 x higher than those charged in the city center.

Despite being a good hotel, I do not like being isolated from everything and would never stay in it again!

Well what an I say

Huge thank you to Thomas and his staff this has been our third visit and it just doesn’t disappoint. Everything is just great I’ve noticed some people moan about the price of tours etc but where else do you get your own private island. The Coron island tour your in your own boat and away from the masses and the boat crew cook you a barbecue meal on a remote beach. I would like to say a special thank you to Solomon, Allen Grace, Juvi, Mateh, Well to many to mention really. We’ve been to most of south east Asia but the philipinos are undoubtedly the most hospitable. Once again thanks Thomas
