The Coco Grove Resort in San Juan,Siquijor made my stay an indelible overnight sojourn. I’ve been reading countless positive feed backs on this resort online and their helpful information provoked me to reserve an accommodation for a night.

As soon as our vessel docked the islands harbor and as we depart, it marked a memorable experience. The resorts transport service welcome me with a warm greetings at the seaport as the staff was carrying a welcome sign with my name written on it, a beautiful lady came out of the van and greeted with a smile. Travel time from the port to the resort is 30 minutes.

  The reception area was sincerely functional. Everyone was very polite and considerate. Another young lady accompanied me to my room. I was assigned on one of the deluxe room ( #26-follow this link for resorts map)

The room has ample space, the whole area was clean, I requested a big bed and they never fail my request, bedclothes were laid perfectly and decoratively, bathroom was neat enough, an open-air gallery can also be accessed separated by a sliding door as an extension of the unit.

1.Air-conditioned rooms

2.32″cable TV

4.w/ back-up generator

Olympic pool behind

After taking a nap, I went down to check the Olympic pool, the sight from the veranda offers a promised of an attractive bath so I grab the towel and settled on one of the benches. Beside the pool is a nice setting of the bar which makes even more refreshing. The bartenders were absolutely very accommodating.

For beach bummers, the Coco Groves long stretch of private white sand beach is ideal for you, bask under the sun and revel the warmth of the light on the benches provided along the area.

Sagana in our local language actually means abundant

For snorkeling and diving activity, Coco Groves Tubod marine sanctuary is the right spot for you. The sanctuary is just s few steps away from the private beach parallel to it. The protected area has a diverse underwater ecosystem teeming with fishes, I’ve seen it on my own eyes.

Another spectacle sight that every visitor shouldn’t miss while in Coco Grove is to witness the disappearance of the sun. The fantastic sundown was quick then so I settled on their sunset restaurant.

Ultimately, the provision of service of each crew was exemplary, everyone was attentive and kind,everyone was assiduously attending the best of comfort of their guest,and for that it will leave a lasting impression on every visitor, which I think is the most important of all. A fantastic 10 over 10 assessment I gave to this resort.
