I have no question with the place, amenities and the food. But my only concern is the receptionist named Kim. She must be friendly and warm in accommodating inquiries and reservation with a tone of respect not rude and dry in talking to a telephone conversation. She seemed threatening me in giving instruction about the policy of the resort when... More

We have stayed here for two weeks in each of the past two years. The beach is wonderful! We also did jet skiing, snorkeling, pedal boats, pool, ping-pong, visited the bird sanctuary there, ate some meals, enjoyed the shows, took the ferry back and forth to Davao, took the barge and had massages and everything was great. Compared to the... More

First time I came here 11 years ago, had lovely day trip and even came back shortly after for camping. Now in 2015 it is an absolute disgrace to the Philippines. When we arrived we had some extremely arrogant and gleeful security guards open our bags without permission and remove drinks and snacks. Im fine with not consuming outside food... More

As soon as you step in front of the resort entrance doesn't seem like it's a paradise. You got security guards rummaging your bags checking for food and drinks that is brought from the outside. We stayed for 3 nights so we were stuck with their overpriced food and drinks which are 2-5 times more expensive compared outside foods. There's... More

We went there to enjoy the beach, once the tide came in, and some food. Very nice swim, and the food was some of best I've had in the philippines. Extra attention to the taste of the food is a sign of good managements commitment to pleasing the tourists. Very nice zoo I loved the rare spotted doves, another name... More

A very nice place with easy access by resorts' boats. Seven minutes away from Davao. Don't miss it if you go to Davao. White sand and crystal waters. Excellent, friendly staff, delicious meals. Very good facilities The only disadvantage very shallow sea and no swimming pool as alternative.

Loved the resort design and decor. Loved the food, although I'd advice the chief to check with the local bakers or Google for God's sake what focaccia bread looks like. Paella Marinara should remain a seafood bucket and shouldn't have pork in it. Our server at dinner, 'Chris' went beyond his way to serve us on our last night. Restaurant... More

As you have read in many of the other reviews. I stayed at a premier room from March 22-25. Room size was very adequate for a party of 3 adults and one child. We got an xtra bed for the 3rd adult. Bathroom is well designed. The place is a perfect base for your Davao trip. From the resort you... More

A great place for some family fun at the beach, not so much for the younger generation/barkada trip. The hotel rooms are clean, spacious and quite new (pics posted). The landscaping is quite nice. There is a playground for the kids to enjoy and a mini zoo with beautiful birds, lizards and other animals. Food is good, there's lots to... More

Perfect for family and kids. The beach is just right at the front of the restaurant. The kids can take a swim while the parents enjoy their food and drinks. The place is safe, clean, and convenient. Start early at 5am if you want to enjoy the beach as it's already very low tide around 10am.
