The Visayas region
Mangrove Inn is located 70 kilometers south of Cebu City, the third largest city in the Philippines. Near the villa, which is close to the sea and pristine, sandy beaches, you will find perfect diving spots, beautiful mountains for hiking, caves waiting to be explored and swirling rivers. This peaceful part of Cebu is unspoiled and the locals are welcoming you with kind hospitality and have a good understanding of the English language. Within 5 to 15 kilometers several bars and restaurants of all kinds are at your disposal. Not only the original and exquisite local dishes are served, but also European, Oriental and Mediterranean specialties. In Cebu City everything you expect from a well-developed capital can be found: shopping-centers, cinemas, golf-courses, festivals and an array of historical sightings showcasing you the rich culture of the Philippines. In the central part of Cebu lovers of nature can visit Central Cebu Protected Landscape where rare birds, animals and flowers can be viewed. Some of those species only live in this specific area and are unique to the rest of the world. From Cebu City it is easy to book a daytrip to the Bantayan Islands, known for its fine white beaches, clear waters and excellent seafood diners. Mangrove Inn's central location makes it overall perfect for travelling to the other Philippine islands and explore the Island itself through hiking, biking, boating or driving. After such a busy day with lots of beautiful impressions you can take a step back and relax at your own private and full-serviced villa.

"Rustig en Vreedsaam"
What a great place, away from everything. If you want to relax and experience a vacation of doing nothing, then this is the place. From the minute we were picked up at the airport, until we were dropped off again, we were treated like family. Erma... What can I say. Exceptional. She was such a great help, guide, organizer, friend, aunt etc. She really went out of her way to help us. From cooking for us, to organizing a fantastic day at Argao Beach Club, to taking us shopping, to teaching us how to cook Philippino food, to sharing her weekly community work and duties with us, to being just a friend and an overall lovely person.
Waking up everyday with the sea view, and going to sleep every night with the sea view will stay with us forever. It was so relaxing.
If you want to break away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist vacation scene, then this is the place to stay. You will relax, swim and do nothing everyday. A really nice place and nice people. Thank you for everything.

"Very nice and relaxed environment among very nice local people"
The Mangrove Inn is privately build and owned by a great Dutch couple who have Fillipine family living next door.
The house is pretty big and can easily host a bigger family or a small group. It's located at the sea side. The balcony at the first floor is directly overlooking the sea. The house includes a nice big swimming pool with an open end at the sea side. The owners family that lives next door are very friendly and willing to help with anything you need, including arraging trips/excursions in the country.. There are many mangrove trees on the beach, which gives a very relaxed and natural look. This makes that there is no big sand beach at the doorstep, which could be considered as a minus, but the area is still very suitable for swimming, snorkling, boating etc. Next to that, nice big sand beaches are very nearby.
Al together a very good stay if you don't like busy shopping streets filled with bars and discos, but instead are looking for rest and for those who enjoy to engage with the local people.

"a swamp in the middle of nowhere"
House is located 2 meters from a busy and noisy highway, so you can learn the Ceres Bus line schedule by heart all night.The pool did not work when we were there, damaged by the earthquake. It seems t… More
Lessons learned from this review is that in the highly unlikely event of an earthquake we will cancel all reservations until we can guarantee all functionality as advertised as well as the safety of our guests.
The road is near Mangrove Inn which is valued by most of our guests. It's easy to get a bus on day time and at night there is hardly any traffic. The beauty and pool are on purpose on the sea side of the house where road noises are minimised and safety is guaranteed. For future development we like to extend a yellow sand beach. The department of environent and natural resources has not permitted that yet.
We are very happy with our staff and so are all our other guests so far. When no guests are there we insist that they use the facility because they deserve it for their work and we believe in better service by happy people. Another advantage is that any possible malfunction comes to light.
All the rest of the review we don't recognize or is as per description in our advertisement.
