FAQ

 

-        Do we need to bring cash to spend on the island?

Expenses used at Sagastrand like in the restaurant, pick-up at the airport and other activities arranged by Sagastrand can be paid with credit card at the resort. There is no ATM on the island, so some cash is necessary for expenses outside the resort, but however we are happy to inform you that we now has a new service for our customers: Credit card to cash, where we will let our customers withdraw up to PHP 3000 depending on the resorts cash at the moment. The fee for this service will be 5%.

-        Can we buy our own food and other shopping facilities on the island?

Yes, you can buy the basic food on the island, but for diverse food, you need to buy this in the city. We can however help you with this if you send us a shopping list prior to your arrival. We also have a restaurant where you can buy meals. An advice is to bring your own sun lotion as this is not available on the island and the only available in the city is sun block. There are not any modern shopping facilities on the island in the sense of what tourists expect. The selection of goods is limited and intended for the locals, which are quite poor. For “proper” shopping, we will advise you to go to Cebu, where all well-known brands are available. Apart from our restaurant, there are also a few others on the island. An advice is to bring your own sun lotion as this is not available on the island and the only available in the city is sun block.

-        Is it possible to hire a house helper/maid during our stay?

Yes, you can hire a helper for cooking, shopping, looking after the children, etc for PHP 1000 for one week.

-        How do we get there?

From the airport you take a taxi to the Mövenpick (former Hilton) pier at Mactan (15 min). Then take the ferry (departure every 30 min daytime) to Olango Island (20 min). Then take a tricycle to Sagastrand (10 min). Airport pick-up can also be arranged for an additional fee. You will then be picked up at the airport, and the driver will arrange for boat tickets and will help you onboard the boat. When arriving at Olango, you will be picked up by someone from Sagastrand and guided to our resort (we have got very good feedback on our transportation package from our international guests).
