Sanctuary Garden in Sibuyan, Romblon

Rooms at at Sanctuary Garden Resort in Magdiwang, Sibuyan

As mentioned in my previous blog post about Cresta de Gallo, we are very grateful that we’ve stayed in Sanctuary Garden.

Staying in Sanctuary Garden was the best decision we made. We were tempted to change plans during the RORO trip because I wasn’t getting any updates from my contact from the resort. When we went departed the ship, someone approached me and mentioned my name. Perhaps, it was gut feeling on his part to ask me and I immediately said “Yes, it’s me!”. It was one of the partners / owners of Sanctuary Garden and his name is Edgar. He brought his SUV and picked us up at the port then brought us to the resort. The reason that I didn’t receive his texts / calls is because of network problems. We felt so shy that he had to do this for us. This made me confirm the the things I read online that staff and especially owners of the resort go an extra mile for you.

Ambulong Port at Magdiwang, Sibuyan

The plan was to visit Cresta de Gallo the moment we docked at Magdiwang, Sibuyan. We had an earlier booking for a place to stay overnight in Magdiwang which is Sanctuary Garden Resort. We were told by another passenger on the ferry that it would be best to stay in San Fernando because it’s nearer Cresta de Gallo.

Thus, we went with the original plan of proceeding to our journey to Cresta de Gallo upon check in at Sanctuary Garden Resort.
