“THE place to be”ここに泊まるべき!! ■ジャックス フランス
Villa Marmarine will surely be on my top hostel to stay in Asia, and surely the only one to go in lovely Siquijor.
Splendid view on the perfect clear water, nice tropical environment, lovely desert beach just for you with hammock to relax.....Nice house with bamboo style, very quiet, free laundry, free internet......just the paradise.
I have not check the others big rooms but the bungalow was really correct and clean, with TV/hot water/fridge/ bamboo style bed and mosquitoes net.
The best thing about Villa Marmarine, is surely the kindness of the owner Dagman and the PERFECT staff absolutely lovely, always looking if you are ok and extremely polite.
With a Japanese touch (girls wear Kimono at night), that is surely the best staff I have ever seen so far away in Asia, its like a big family and u feel really at home here.
Need to do some exercise? Go with Dagman play tennis in the private tennis area, he will like and he s good teacher.
No need to look for another place in Siquijor, thats THE place to go, your trip here will be like in paradise.
I thanks them for their kindness and I will definitely be back there.

Annehmlichkeiten und allem was man sich vorstellen kann.

Siquijor is known for its mystic healers, but the most impressive “elementary” healer is probably “DAGMAN” himself.
We were brought to Villa Marmarine by the tricycle and planned to stay for one night, which ended up to be impossible. We had a six night stay including Cockfighting, Bollo Bollo, fresh tuba, vulcanizing, banana blossom, strong coffee,
“Het beste Boek van de Weg” We love DAGMAN-shouting children-tour, firefly tour “Goedemorgen” every morning, Diving and passionate exam stories of the working volunteers, the hammocks at the white sand beach, clean clothes and of course the great staff which treats the place like it is their own.
Dankjewel “ DAGMAN and MARIE, you showed us the insights of the Philippines…………..
Tot ziens en liefs, in Nederland of Siquijor.

We planned to stay 1 or 2nights on Siquijor but it ended up with 5days at this cosy living that is totally fantastic.The cottage that feels like a villa,has much space and a good value.In the restaurant we were stargazing while eating dinner.
Dagman and Marmarine were wonderful,friendly and very caring.
Thank you for making our stay at so great and relaxing.

We enjoyed a marvellous stay at Villa Marmarine Resort. Daman, with a lot of energy as well as tremendous kindness, is a very attentive owner and host, listening to his guests' requests. His entire Filipino crew is also very helpful and kind. This place is magnificent. The bungalows are very comfortable and joyfully decorated with plenty of inspiration from Japanese "Zen". Food served is of very good quality and very refined. The Paradise exists. We have found it here. Click the letter!

Dear HARADASAN ,MARMARINE
Thank you very very much for a wonderful stay in SIQUIJOR.
VILLA MARMARINE is beautiful and the views over looking. The sea are simply breath taking. The meals are more in the form f feast and utterly delicious.
I am also very grateful for having had the chance to tour with LARENA TENNIS CLUB to play against TALIBON,BOHOL. What a fantastic experience and one I shall not forget!
I hope to see you and all the guys in the tennis club again soon.My best wishes.
「Hope to return one day.」 ■Samantha Naila Haque
Just wanted to say a big thank you for all your hospitality when my friend
and I stayed with you last week. It was the best place on our trip. Thanks
also for sending Max to Cebu to give us our passports. It was incredibly
kind and out of your and his way to do so. It was very silly of us to leave
them behind and we could have missed our flight so we are extra grateful.
Back in London and it was freezing cold. We are also stuck in our flats
as the snow is treacherous. Hope to return one day.
「We all really enjoyed it!」 ■Bibbi and Lito
Thank you Dagman for the lovely stay at your place.
We all really enjoyed it! And we had a blast in Siquijor
Say hi to your sweet wife!
Take care! Best regards,
「I am hoping to bring my family soon to Villa Marmarine.」 ■Jean-Philippe Cremers
Dear Daman and Marmarine-san,
Your guesthouse at Siquijor was for me an incredible memory.
I do not stop talking about it since I came back to Japan.
I would like to email you the photos I took at Villa Marmarine. Please
could you email me your email address.
I am hoping to bring my family soon to Villa Marmarine.
Kind regards to you both,
「We just wanted to say thankyou!」 ■Georgina, Lita, and Chris.UK

「I certainly hope I get the opportunity to stay there again one day soon!」 ■Yan Kruger
I just wanted to thank you, your wife and your great staff for an excellent stay at your resort. I was so impressed by the level of service and friendliness of your resort. I certainly hope I get the opportunity to stay there again one day soon! You were so understanding when our home was broken into, delaying our arrival and your staff were amazing in organising diving for me on January 1, followed by buying our ferry tickets in the morning to make sure we could get a ticket. I was most impressed! Arigatou Gozaimasu
「We had a great time!」 ■Daniel, Charlie and Beatrix
Thank you for the photos you sent us, we had a great time staying at the Villa Marmarine (despite the camera incident), you and your staff made it one of the best places we have stayed in our whole trip. Thanks again,

it is best to have the sanctuary.

「I fell in love with the view so were the other people who was with me.」 ■Tony Castillo
Before we arrived at Siquijor, I dont know what to expect. Initially, our driver brought took us to a resort in San Juan. Was a good resort but it was not actually for me. So, the next day, we checked out and our driver took us to Villa Marmarine. The owner was very accommodating and the staff was absolutely fantastic. I fell in love with the view so were the other people who was with me. Instead of us going to another place, we stayed for a night. I wish we could have stayed more but we have got a trip to Bohol.
Foods are fabulous, well we only ate Dinner, breakfast and lunch.
I am sure that I will be back in the Villa Marmarine for a longer stay and to see the smiling and friendly face of the staff and its owner.
Keep it up guys and hope to see you in the near future. :)
