        Overall facility”

        The resort cottage facility I find is not acceptable to my level, there is no toilet and bath facility, and only portalet is provided. You have to use such common facility on land. You have to travel for nearly 2 hours on outrigger motor banca from San Jose to the island and is a bit longer to endure. I find the staffs are very friendly and accommodating. The place is a good place to relax. Please note that there is no Internet connection in the island. I recommended this place to those who like quite place to stay and there is no pressure from outside world.
