Talima Beach Villas and Dive Resort


The first time I've been to Olango Island, way back December 2015 (Yes, this is a throwback post!), was only spent chilling at Talima Beach Villas and Dive Resort which we booked through Agoda. It was my first time to book via Agoda and I must say that the transaction was really smooth. Anyway, we chose the place because it was the only resort that had a swimming pool based on our Google search. Haha. When we arrived there, we were amazed with the place and how peaceful it was. Talima Beach Villas and Dive Resort is indeed a tropical hideaway that offers you tranquility and privacy with a scenic panoramic ocean view.

Getting to Olango Island is easy as pie and the fares are very cheap too! If you don't have a plan of staying overnight, a budget of Php 500 per person will already be enough! I will be providing a link of the simple Olango Island travel guide I published at the end of this post.

Talima Beach Villas and Dive Resort is a small 10-room quiet resort which what I absolutely loved about it. The resort is perfect for couples, groups, and people who simply want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city life. Imagine relaxation and serenity at its finest!

We arrived at the resort at around 10:30 AM and when we approached their reception area, which actually is at their restaurant, they told us that their check-in time is 2 PM (I was quite ignorant that time!) so they let us stay in one of their cottages while waiting. Another thing that I loved about the resort is that their cottages had beds. I really love how they want to offer their guests a great relaxation experience. If you're going there for day tour only, the entrance fee is only Php 250 inclusive of usage of their cottage and swimming pool.

This was our room from the outside. I booked a poolside room because apparently it was the cheapest room available and the deal at Agoda was better than other booking sites. I took photos of our room but they weren't blog-worthy. The photos were blurry! Haha! Anyway, the room was practically okay. Our primary concerns though were that there was no mini-bar or mini-ref available to place the bottles of softdrinks and water that we bought and the aircon wasn't really quite working. Sheen and I actually concluded maybe that's why they had an electric fan in the room to compensate for the non-working aircon. But nevertheless, we still had a good night sleep!

We brought food with us but not for lunch so we ordered at their restaurant. And you actually don't have any other choice since there are no carenderias near the area. I'm not sure if they charge a corkage fee if you bring your own packed lunch but in our experience, we brought bread and noodles for breakfast the next day and when we checked out, we had no corkage charges. So yay! Their food were actually delicious but the prices were a bit expensive.

Overall, we had an amazing weekend at Talima Beach Villas and Dive Resort. Olango Island is a beauty in general and I would really suggest you go visit it as well.
