Hi I'm looking for a nice place to stay in the islands. One called marbuena island resort in ajuy. Does anyone have any opinions on this place? thank you.
For P1000 per night for 2 persons, extra beds P150 a piece. 12 cabins only. It is relatively cheap. The place is very decent, quiet and it is the ONLY place in Panay where nature is relatively undisturbed. I have not seen any big Ipil (hardwood like ebony) left in Panay, and not seen many Heron's flying around. In Marbuena there aer many.
Although simple in facilities, it has all you can want, the personnel is friendly and knows the island and the area. Go for treehouse number 2 and you will find yourself in a cabin in a mangrove area with a private veranda where you can drink your San Miguel. Electricity between 18:00 and 23:00, so bring your torch. If you are a diver, there are nice sites at Calabasas (lighthouse) and Nasidman. Bring enough bottles, there is no compressor.
A place to relax and see the islands as they were 50 years ago.
