False advertising. We stayed last weekend and we are still talking about it now, talk about leaving a mark... not in a good way. We had a couple of issues with this resort and I'll enumerate: 1. We were told we are going to stay at the 5 stories Bolifugao Premier. When we arrived, we wore told that the room was taken down since it collapsed. Had they mentioned this before we never would have pushed thru with the reservation. Granted the initial booking was pre-pandemic, but we were told as late as 1 week ago that the room is still available. The staff told us that they are trying to "clean up" all the reservations, so perhaps that's the reason why they were not upfront about the room availability. 2. The air-conditioning is too weak to cover the large room (Stonesomething) they had to put it high powered electric fans and even that is not enough. Also, the TV is not working, the staff said they don't have a signal. 3. Mice, cockroaches, and mosquitoes. We left our food at the table and when we woke up there were mice droppings on it, the bed also had some mice droppings and we also found a roach egg under the pillow. One of our friends got bit by a roach also while sleeping and we had to hunt down the roach as big as my thumb. 4. The pools are a bit filthy. Grime and "lumot" can be found in the main pool, it's too slippery also and just plain walking can be a challenge when ur inside the pool. 5. The staff told us that the Cafe Bar was open 24hrs, but around 5am there's no one manning the bar and no personnel can be found. I personally had to go through the kitchen and refill our jug of water. *If I wanted to steal something, I could have since THERES NO ONE AROUND. 6. I don't see myself bringing small kids here since the rocks are very sharp and they are all over the place. The pathways are also very unstable and any small kids or ever senior citizens would have a hard time navigating around the resort. 7. They advertise different "bamboo" oriented vehicles to ride but all of those are either broken or full of rust already, nothing is functional (carriage, jeepney, tricycle). 8. They offered us one of the large rooms, and they gave us the "extended weekends rate" we did NOT stay during the extended weekends, we came from work on a Friday and went to work on Monday. This is a classic example of the "let's chalk this to experience" type of situation. We would have left and not stayed, but they told us that the deposit could not be refunded already, thus we were forced to stay 1 night.

False advertising at its finest! Do not waste your money on this dump. The place is dirty, the most basic of facilities aren’t working, eg flush, aircon, TV, and the food is nowhere close to healthy! I paid for land and water activities that the resort could not even give - and to this day, I am waiting for Michael Parayno to respond to my emails for a refund!

My wife and I went there for our wedding anniversary. Pros: Even though the place was fully booked, we didn't see a lot of people because it is inside a forest and rooms are well spread out. The beach is small but private with a lot of shaded areas. The water in front is nice for snorkeling. A lot of seaweed so you have to swim a lot to find corals which is ok. There is a big clam area but we didn't find it and the staff weren't able to point us in the right direction. There are some shaded platforms by the water which the staff let us use. You can rent those as well so I am guessing if they are not rented overnight you can use them. We did... The staff is very friendly and helpful. I asked them to start a fire in the pit outside when we arrived and the staff left without asking for a tip. Super high speed internet. The fastest I have ever seen in any resort/hotel and I have travelled globally. Lots of nature and places to hang out. Cons: We rented the house and thought it was overpriced for what it was. TV positioned in a place nobody could ever watch it. No couch in front, you would have to stand in front or sit on the floor. Since its in the second floor, you can't move furniture in front of it.. Nothing plugged in the TV so you can't watch anything anyway. The amenities in the house were lagging, no plates, no utensils, nothing. Couch was pwede na, bed was comfortable but no linen. Lots of insects in the bed such as tiny spiders etc. The restaurent was hit and miss. Some things were good some things were ok lang. Overpriced for what it was but resorts have to make money and its been difficult for them. Place is dog friendly which is good for some but we had to put up with a dog owner who left his dog crying outside his room all night... The bidet was leaking all weekend, they didn't fix it and the CR floor was flooded the hole time... In conclusion: We travel prepared so we were not really bothered with the issues above. We brought our own linen and pillows, kitchen stuff, towels, etc. If not for the poor value of the house I would have given the place 4/5 If you are looking for a plush place to get pampered and you complain about the smallest detail, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a place to relax, this is a great place. We already booked to go back in December and this time we are trying a different room. Hopefully we will find those giant clams :) Comments for the owners: It would take a lot of money to correct the issues mentioned above. Buy a stick computer for 4K so people can watch netflix. Put the TV downstairs in front of the couch. Buy some decent linen for the bed. Use some bug spray in between visitors. Get a proper plumber to fix plumbing issues, put a few more lounging chairs in the house near the TV. Buy kitchen stuff... Then the place house is certainly worth the price you charge for it.

It is frustrating and felt I have been rip-off. The place has not been maintained, un-kept and garbage lying all over. We were given a room that was not the one we reserved and paid for. The room was dusty with crawling insects and surrounded by a dirty environment and dilapidated kubos. What was written on their page was totally a hoax. My advice if you want to experience the place, go check it out, or just walk in but have your options open for a back up plan. Don't pay in advance.

After over a year being locked down in Manila, I finally had to get out to get my sanity back. Took the family here for a week and really had fun enjoying the place. The resort is so so so quiet except the sound of birds and the trees blowing against the wind. The week went by so fast. Really did not look forward to the drive back to hell in the city for who knows how long we get lock down. I wish this pandemic gets over so I can come back here again. I was just here for holiday but I saw a bunch of people working online at the resort. Some were tech people, some call center people, and some just independent workers. I wish I had a job online too. Felt a bit jealous. This is perfect place if nature is your thing. It certainly is not your typical resort. The staff is all smiles so that makes it great during such a depressing time.

I do not recommend this place for long-term travelers and digital nomads. We stayed at one of the 3-story kubos for an extended period of time. Not going to lie, I enjoyed the first few days of our stay but our experience soured after a week or so. First of all, we were not pleased with the attitude of the manager, Em. She would climb into the kubo and get close to us without asking for permission from us first. It made us uncomfortable, especially in light of the pandemic. She also once asked us to lie, just in case, when people (possibly from the government?) came to inspect the resort and asked us where we were from. Sometimes, she would not even wear her mask properly. Our neighbors who scored a good deal on their stay said that she was cold towards them, which they felt stemmed from the fact that they paid less than most other visitors. She was less accommodating to requests and questions than all the other staff members, which was quite for someone with her position. The others would gamely abide by our requests, but she would later shoot it down without any explanation why. Second, the charges were inconsistent. There was no transparency with the prices they charged for water, laundry, etc. We compared notes with other residents who were staying on a monthly basis and found out that they would charge more for certain clients. Ridiculous. What was the logic of that? Be wary and always ask for the prices. When we asked for a proper OR, they did not provide it either. Strange. Third, they did not update us when it came to power outages. This was really upsetting as they are trying to rebrand as a co-working hub or BPO center or whatever. There were times when there was no electricity in the premises due to inclement weather or roadwork. We understand that it was out of their control, but they did not even come up to the guests to explain what was going on or what their plan was! Shouldn't that be common etiquette? Sometimes, the outages were scheduled earlier (which we found out later on through Facebook) but they did not seem aware of it and claimed it was unexpected. We missed classes and deadlines because of this. Fourth, the structures were honestly not very safe and secure. This is especially true for the bamboo flooring that bridged the kubos. I would not recommend bringing your disabled or elderly loved ones here. The owner himself got injured and had to use a wheelchair but couldn't visit the rest of the area. Hopefully, that gave him an idea of just how unfriendly the place can be towards the disabled. Fifth, some of the food that we kept in the fridge went bad because they would pull the plug with no warning. At the beginning of our stay, we were warned that this would happen at the end of each week. They seemed to do it at random and ultimately wasted our food and money. If they had informed us earlier, we could have planned for it. So much for an eco-friendly resort (funnily enough, the owner smoked a ton and would throw his cigarette butts anywhere and everywhere). Sixth, we felt like some of the activities advertised were misleading at best. The bikes were mostly unusable. One of them had rusted over, the other had brakes that did not work (which is the reason my friend got into an accident). The carriage was in a state of disrepair, there was no horseback riding available as the post claimed. All the other employees were great. The place had natural raw beauty, although it was diminished by the lack of care that went into it. Rustic can be nice, but that quality did not seem intentional at Birdland Beach Club. If I didn't get the place at a discounted rate, I would definitely have even more complaints. This place is perfect for short trips, but it honestly feels like they have not figured out how to deal with long-term guests. It has potential, but maybe they should stop focusing on making "new" things like the lighthouse (that they want to be taller than the Bolinao one lol) and focus on improving what they already have.

As a background, I've been a digital nomad since 2015 around the world and have always been hesitant doing it in the Philippines due to spotty internet. I saw this resort ad on Facebook and booked a flight on a chance but I had the owners give me speed tests on their internet before I came. Glad they had two internet service providers so that I can choose the fastest for my work. Tested both during a stormy day; one read 150mbps plus the other 300mbps plus. It worked for my two month stay and will continue to stay until I'm ready to move on. Glad they have this place besides having to go to Bali, Thailand, or Central America to do remote working. As for the resort, it's an eco resort so if you like solar power, windmills, lots of trees, a nursery, green architecture, organic food,even vegan, this place is for you. I like the fact that they have fresh eggs from their hens and ducks and a bunch of other farm animals on the resort like a horse, goats, and turkeys. Definitely a place you can get used to and stay for a while. There were the occasional overnight tourists on the weekends but on most days, it's a very quiet and serene place to work interrupted only by the waves and chirping of birds, hence Birdland. Btw, I got to visit their very own waterfalls which from what I learned, the owners just bought the main Bolinao Falls with the cliff jumping just recently so you can have the falls into yourself on their 1 hectare waterfalls property.

My partner and I saw this place featured on tv and a few news blogs about workation which is the new in thing among remote workers and digital nomads so we took the dive. Perfect mix of live work play. Internet speeds over 300 mbps for converge with a backup pldt fiber which we didn't really use. The common kitchen from our three story hut was kinda far but it gave us the nice morning walk we needed from days of just sitting and lounging. Two months of digital paradise.

Upon arrival my girlfriend and me were a bit disappointed as we had the impression that they forgot our booking. We were tired and hungry from travelling which added to that feeling: unjustified. Staff is really friendly and genuine. The resort itself is super-quiet and peaceful... We stayed in a little hut with gave us view at the sea. The only sound you hear is the wind, the water and birds... The hut only had a matress in it and that's enough. WiFi didn't work which was awesome, after all who needs internet in a place like that? We took the 100 Island Tour which was wonderful, next day we saw Enchanted Cave (I recommend everybody to do that), rock formations and Patar Beach. If you want to relax: go here and you won't be disappointed.
