Bluejaz Resort is listed as one of the top 10 beaches in Samal Island. Nestled down the base of a hill in Barangay Calicdic, facing Davao City across a channel with spectacular view of the sea, it has pearly white sand beach, infinity swimming pool, cottages for day-tour picnic goers, rooms for staying guests, a restaurant, coffee shop and bar,...

We had our family outing today. So far their service is good. The staff are friendly and polite. This is the second time we visit blujaz resort. The only thing that we encounter with my family is their toilet are smell stinky. I think they need to clean and do something. People visited this resort are paying. So in return... More

Avoid the plague, go somewhere else. Small pool usually packed with kids. Lifegaurd DOES NOT like whites and will try to embarass you by constantly popping off. You can never be right. Finally gave him the finger and he shut up, but really? Overpriced food is pathetic. Our order was wrong. The last Bluejaz ferry leaves at 3pm. They won't... More

Let me start by giving a disclaimer...I had stayed for a week-end, just a few days earlier, at a resort right next door, so it is hard to write a review of this resort, without comparing it to the one next door. But I guess that is what this site is for. First off, our room...I think it was called... More

The infinity pool was closed during our entire stay. There is NO wifi or ethernet connection in our room. We were told that the wifi by the bar/restaurant is strong, but only to find out that it wasn't working at all on the first 24 hours of our stay. On the next 24 hours, the bar wifi was hit and...

We stayed at blue jazz, for two nights. The rooms were horrible and the bathroom was full of mold and lacked enough towels and tissues. There was free coffee, but the coffee maker was broken. The pools water was very cloudy and seemed dirty. We were both unhappy with our stay. There are so many other places on Samal to... More

The food is excellent, the view is stunning and the setting lovely, some of the rides seem of variable quality, but a great day out for the family as long as the rides are working. The fried chicken is almost worth the trip alone.

Bluejaz is a great choice when choosing a beach to swim or just be under the sun.5 minutes ride of the boat from their wharf and is relatively cheaper compared to other resorts around (120pesos entrance including the boat fare back/forth).They also has a giant slide(w/ fee of 90pesos) if you like some sliding(not so giant for me though!!).Free use...

Wow, I went back to bluejaz. Yeah. Waterslide still not resurfaced. Ok,here's the deal. Alot of employees write reviews to pump up the business,that's how they keep their job here in the Phil. Yes,if you like swimming,bluejaze is actually really convenient. Boat will take you there. Takes like 10 minutes. On the boat. For a day of swimming in the... More

I went to bluejaz. That's about it hahahah. First off,resorts in the Philippines aren't worth the money. Bluejaz will disappoint you. Low tide will have you wading in the sea so if you like to swim, you'll be confined to one of their pools. Forget the waterslides. I was all "jazzed" for the waterslides. Half way down though,you will stop.... More
