Amenities: For the life of me, I could never understand why anyone would consider Fernandez a 4-star resort. The cottage we stayed in? so-so. Beach front's not too clean, and by the looks of it, the kiddie pool's 30% piss. Customer service: Oh, where do I begin. There's just too many to complain about. Why on earth do you hire... More

I'm not a big beach fan, but this place actually made me enjoy it. We picked this resort randomly without expecting much. The idea was just to take a dip in one of Samal's beaches, get a place to rest our heads, and be on our way the next morning. The resort was near the road so we were immediately... More

The resort is nice. In fact, it was the better one we found in the area after looking around. But the rate is not that worth it. The cottage was comfortable, the beddings okay, the room and the toilet is clean. The entire resort looks lovely and peaceful. We just don't like the staff. They don't have a clear protocol.... More

This resort is very nice especially the pool and the rooms but the staff not so good. I go there by bus the "Island Garden City of Samal" somewhere in Magsaysay Park in Davao City and took me 1 hour trip. Going there once is enough. :)

The resort offers accommodation for large groups and it's a good thing. Their rooms are a bit spacious and their private restroom is also large. The beach front is also great as there are many benches. I can also say that the beach is safe. They installed nets around their beach area to warn swimmers that it's the deep part.... More

I booked to stay here based on a blog I read about this resort. I phoned the resort's mobile number obtained from the net and after a few unanswered calls, finally someone picked up the phone. There was only one cottage left, it is non-aircon. Non-aircon is okay so I took it. My cousin and I arrived at the resort... More

We arrived there at around 9 AM and we're told to wait till 12 pm coz the room we we're booked was still occupied and was just about to checked out at around 11 AM,plus an... More

This place was huge & awesome! The swimming pool looks nice & tempting and the beach was quite safe for us since they have this fence that limits us not to exceed for maybe it's not safe to go beyond that. The only problem was the mud when you go swim deeper but that's not really a big deal though.... More
