Balay Kogon is beautiful because the properties are detached and its charming because of its cogon roofs. The gardens are lush and well taken cared off. The staffs are very helpful and courteous.

Location is amazing and resort is perfect getaway and be with nature. Staff is wonderful, patient, funny and brings that local Sicogon hospitality that is unmatched. The rooms are wonderful, clean, peaceful and has everything you need. We stayed here for a week when others only 2-3 days and was worth every day of the stay for peace and quiet. Isolation is not for everyone as some might not be cool with eating only in one place, no wifi, and just the ocean and mountain as your playground. But for those that really want to get away from it all, this is it!

The view was spectacular! This is the place to get away from city life and just relax. Island hopping is available and at your own pace: you can stay longer or shorter at any stop. Did I say views were spectacular?

It is definitely a REPEAT PLACE for us looking forward to comeback again soon. Just a suggestion: The nearby fisherman folks is a community worth tapoing. They can provide the freshiest catch. We were able to buy crabs and fish there but was charged corkage fee. I know that this is a hotel guidelines but this should apply to guest not buying their food in the hotel. We ordered our food in the hotel 3 main courses with desserts and drinks but still ended up paying extra for seafoods not even available in the hitel tht day. They should replace the noozles of their toiletries. I ended up fixing them each time I use them. The heater is not working well. Imagine taking a shower wth water so cold and abruotly changed into HOT water and nack again to COLD all within 2 mins in the shower! That was quite an experiece. What’s commendable are the very helpful staff particularly the security guards, Mae who helped us wth ICE when my daughter had a sprain late at night. Kim our waiter was oarticularly attentive to us as well. Pizza and burgers will be a great addition to ur menu.
