If you're looking for a place in Samal that has a relaxing atmosphere without the crowd, then this resort is a good choice. On a Sunday, we were the only guests at lunch time. Their pizza is good. The facility, including toilets and garden are clean.

Went there as a side trip originally to try their pizza and coffee. Looking around, with their zen-like garden, spacious rooms and near the vanishing island, my friends and I decided to transfer accomodation from another resort. Though their beach front is really not inviting for swimming, their garden setting, food menu, spacious rooms and accomodating staff makes our stay... More

My expectations were not high, but i booked for Easter weekend and there was limited availability elsewhere. Setting of the hotel is great. Inside a garden which is well maintained and offers peace and relaxation (if it were not for the other noisy guests shouting and laughing outside their rooms!) Food is very good, but quite expensive. Staff were friendly... More

I wasn't expecting much from this resort in Samal but when we went there recently, my expectations were exceeded. First of all, the hotel is gorgeous and what I love most is how meticulously the paintings, the designs and the landscaping were selected. It's a mix of Spanish and modern designs although the owners are Filipino and German. It was... More

Precious Garden was an excellent resort. It was well maintained, well managed and very friendly. The location was pretty good as well. The main resort is about 100 meters off the actual beach in an immaculate garden setting. Walk down a palm shaded path and get to the private beach with lots of cabanas, a bar and a pier with...
