    Had an amazing experience staying at this resort with my family. The grand villa 4 bedrooms, featured a private pool with an ocean view. Villa was very comfortable and the service was unmatchable. Their hospitality is simply amazing and would rate their service a 7 star. Pictures of the Grand Villa don't do justice to the place. The resort organized several tours, arranged vegetarian food options and their spa was simply the best.

    We loved Buko. The staff was fantastic. Great food. Perfect location. Everything was taken care of. Gorgeous sunsets, immaculate rooms, every need was considered. Lovely breakfast, sweet infinity pool, charming bar.

    Buko Beach Resort is everything you can ask for and more! It's off the beaten path but once you walk down the hill, you're treated to a long canopy enterence of plants. It is very private and there are only six cottages on the property plus the villa. The service is outstanding and if we needed anything we didnt have any trouble from the staff bringing what we needed.

    Cosy resort with only 6 rooms plus a family house. Location about 20 min. trike ride from Lio Airport. Located at the waterfront in Bacuit Bay, beach isn't really usable because very small. Decent size pool available. Rooms very spacious with an added, half outdoor, bathroom. Loved this idea. AC good working. WLAN good as well. Breakfast was included, several options, pretty much European style. Dinner at your choice at the resort or the restaurants along the beach front within 15 minutes walk. We choose to dine at the resort. Dinner menu with several options. All in one great food, vegetarian, seafood or otherwise. We had massages in the room via Blue Sea Spa: amazing. If you love "thai-like" massage, then it's a must. Massages with fresh aloe vera after sunburn were my favorite. Weather in the rainy season was really manageable, longer lasting rain periods were somehow only during the nights. Sometimes we got caught in rain during boat trips and it's been amazing. Warm, nice rain wasn't bad at all. We really enjoyed the boat trips, we did the offered A, B and D tours. It's an amazing experience, every one of them unique with a lot of fantastic spots. For swimming, kayaking, snorkeling, sunbathing or just enjoying the nature. Lunch on the boats was outstanding (we've had some private trips). If you love fish, shrimps and squid (which I do) then it's a must even only for the lunch. But the fantastic spots you'll visit will reward you as well. Last but not least in the list of the best are the people. From trike drivers, to resort staff, till boat crew it's been lovely people. Very polite, helpful and friendly. We were very thankful getting to know so many nice people. And now some things which aren't really bothering but maybe important to be aware of. I've talked about the weather in the rainy season, another positive thing is that the region isn't crowded at all at this time of the year. Even at the islands hotspots they were maximum 3 - 4 boats at the same time with plenty of space for everyone. Some prices are negotiable, I've never had the impression that somebody had been unfair regarding money. Some of the organized boat trips aren't having, like advertised, kayaks on board but you can rent them everywhere at the spots. For a really good price. In the rainy season the bullfrogs are mating. They are really small, their name derives not from the size, but from the sound. Moowing like cows. The first night I've even thought it's some broken generator which is on and off. But after three nights obviously every frog found it's mate and the calls stopped. Talking about generators, rarely the electric power had been interrupted, but the generators kicked in immediately. Silently. You'll hear sometimes some kind of yelling, which in the beginning I've been sure it's a bird. But no, it's been a gecko. There's some of them around, pretty big and beautifully colored. And clearly not at all dangerous for humans. One last idea: our safety wasn't at any time of concern. Thank you for reading!

    - I love the small villas feeling of this place. There are only a few units here so you do not feel overcrowded like some of the other resort - outdoor shower is absolutely the highlight - the team here is so friend, they went above and beyond to take care of us, thank you so much!
