Mangodlong: A rock resort in Camotes


One of the best beach resorts and accommodations Camotes has to offer is Mangodlong Rock Resort or fondly known as Mangodlong to locals. It is a sister resort to Santiago bay and occupies a small cove. It offers one of the best snorkeling spots in the island and it has a PADI dive center that charges the standard fee of $25 per dive known as Ocean Deep.

Mangodlong is located in Himensulan, Pacijan Island (which is now known as San Francisco Island) in the Philippines. It has a 2-hectare land area with coconut shaded garden close to the beachfront. A strange-shaped swimming pools attached to each other for both adults and children gives another option for visitors to swim. Near the beach are tropical huts built on a coral islet. One hut on wonderful rock formation now serves as concept of the logo design of Mangodlong. The clean, native style rooms have very clean bathrooms with cable TV option.

    actually i’ve been there last weekend, and i had terrible memory about staff
    our friends and me (10people)went camotes island by trip.
    we didn’t book resort and then we went there.
    Fortunately they had available rooms.
    and we asked, is it suitable us? we are 10 people.
    she said “sure, not problem ”
    so we trusted her. because of there staff!!!
    also we asked to them “could plz haggle a little bit? caz we are still student”
    the reception girl said especially today is peak time, so we cant haggle today.

    and we payed almost 6000peso for 2 rooms.
    but we really surprised when we saw the room.
    the room was really small. so they put the extra bed in front of toilet!!
    can u imagine?// so we complained to them
    exactly we didnt enter the room. just 5minutes passed after pay

    but reception girl was really rude and impolite
    she crossed her arms and sit the desk and saw us.
    even though, she just say my name Julia, i told u Julia. like that
    we are not friends. i am their customer.
    i thought she didnt go University or even high school.
    she didnt study manner maybe there owner didnt know this story.

    she said ‘ some 5guests already stayed that room some time ago.
    but we saw the poster. that room’s maximum is 4!!!

    so we want to talk with manager or owner.
    but she only told vou can get the 50% as a rule.
    is it fair in cebu? and is it in a rule??

    we asked “plz show me the contract details”
    but she didnt provide form in the end,
    finally we just slept in that room, in front of toilet.
    cause we didnt have enough money

    and the three bottles of water put on the table.
    we payed extra charge we asked “could u plz give 2 bottles of water?
    but they didnd give the water, just we have policy, iny 3 bottles of water

    actually camotes island was beautiful place and resort was nice,
    But be careful the staff!! they didnt say even ‘good morning’ next day!!!!
