My cousin booked us for an air-conditioned room at Gigantes Hideaway Tourist Inn. Unfortunately, due to large unexpected influx of people, we were transferred to Gigantes Hideaway Resort located in a small island nearby. We were downgraded from an air-conditioned room to a tent. Though when we see where we transferred, we can’t say no since it is right in front of the beach.
We slept at a tent (a first for us!) and we enjoyed it since it is just in front of the beach. Electricity supply in the island is only from 6pm to 9pm, so make sure your batteries and power banks are ready for a whole day trip.
Everything is in big serving. Freshly cooked seafood. However, for those who have allergies, please notify them at once so they may serve food other than seafood, as I remember, they only served chicken and pork once or twice during our two days stay.
We brought some emergency food (water, chips and some biscuits), in case we starve during the trip. Though, there are sari-sari stores in the area, though a bit pricey.
They are very nice actually and accommodating. They also are very helpful as they offered medicines for my allergies. Our tour guide, Kuya Jojo, is really nice to us though we were so demanding. He helped us a lot during our stay. I highly commend him for his great work.
The package is very affordable for only PhP2400 per person plus PhP500 if you will get an air-conditioned room. The rate already includes the private boat for island hopping, spelunking at Bakwitan Cave, travel to lighthouse, food, accommodation and passenger boat fare to and from the island.
Overall, I am recommending this resort in case you want to explore Isla de Gigantes.

Staying at Gigantes Hideaway Tourist Inn will give you a glimpse of the simple provincial life in Islas de Gigantes. Its a nice escape for those who want to have peace and quiet. 🏼
-You have a choice between the following:
1. Nipa Hut - MUST. Its so rustic. Hahaha
3. Air con rooms
4. Non air con rooms
- Bathroom is common
- Electricity is cut off in the afternoon.
- FRESH SEAFOOD!!! But you should have the SCALLOPS, Gigantes being the scallop capital an all.
- All their staff are so helpful, so attentive that you really feel taken cared of. Provincial hospitality at its finest.
Just get their packages, depending on how many days and for how many people inclusive of accommodations, tours and meals. Expect around 2K plus. 🏼
