We went there for an overnight stay with my workmates. Its affordable, but we get to pay more to use the swimming pool, I mean that is okay if we could go swimming at the beach but unfortunately we were not allowed since there might be jellyfish as what the crews told us there. So I guess we didnt have... More

Fernandez Beach resort has the worst services ever. The employees are not friendly. Their waitresses kept shouting at their customers whenever they complain about how slow they could attend to their customers' needs. Plus they do not respect you and would make you wait hours just to have your meal served. They would call their own customers stupid just because... More

We didn't really stay long at the resort because we were usually out during the day and we just needed a place where we can leave our bags to enjoy our stroll comfortably. So in a way good because they offer a room for a very low rate so this is good for backpackers. They also offer a variety of... More

The resort wasnt a place to unwind. It was noisy and the beach was dirty and somewhat polluted. Also the television in the canteen was controlled by perhaps one of the staff's child. Other than that, they have poor pricing system. Unlike other resorts, whose system is when you rent a room you get to have an access on the... More

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....

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. :)
