Looking to disconnect from the world and embrace yourself in some local Filipino culture?...Mermaids Paradise is definitely a great choice! My sister and I visited here for one night whilst making our journey down to the airport in Puerto Princess. JR the owner was superb, he was so accommodating and brought me to one of the local waterfalls. We ate a lovely fish dish that the staff made us from scratch that was caught that day! JR and staff also made us all a bonfire whilst we all sat and chatted under the stars on the beach, drinking some beers. The bed I had was extremely comfy too! This was one of my best experiences of the Philippines so far. It was a shame we ran out of time and couldn't stay longer. Although it's a basic resort, do not underestimate the tranquility and comfort you will discover whilst staying here. I felt 100% safe and all the locals are so friendly. Can not fault JR and his staff at Mermaids Paradise! Salamat!
