The room itself is very average. The shower had little water pressure and hot water was scarce. The pools were nice and the staff were reasonably accommodating. But, the big advantage of this resort was the location - the wonderful beach and restaurants on the beach were well worth it. At low tide the beach was ordinary, but at high... More

This place has outstanding oceanside views, easy access to the beach and the seaside restaurants found nearby and a few nice swimming pools if you're in the mood for a quick dip--which is usually the case since the sea, although pretty to look at from a distance, leaves much too be desired up close due to always being low tide....

Santiago Bay located in San Francisco, Camotes Islands, offers a wide, wide, white beach, and looking from the terrace of Santiago Bay Garden & Resort, one can see a white beach, a blue sea and serenity to the maxx.. the view is soo alluring, it takes away problems, confusions by just being in solitude with the sea view right before...

Smelly bathroom. Hot water not working. Too many ants. We rented 3 villas, 1 standard, and their family villa. Our villa had poor aircon, the family villa, is ok I think. But ours dont even have a coffee thermos, no cups, but we had coffee. Duh. They dont have intercon or phones inside so if you need anything, you have... More

We were able to find privacy and great view during our stay in one of their Villa rooms. The garden view outside granted our wish to forget the bustling, fast-paced life in the city. I knew the experience would have been less favorable if we opted for their standard or family rooms. During our mealtime, there's this big group of... More

All things are great. I gathered all my newly met local friends there and had great time with them. I threw a party at their resto and excellent food were served. Three of them slept in my room with low additional cost. The newer infinity pool was also great overlooking the ocean.It was my third time at the resort and... More

We arrived and were struck by the initial beauty of the place. The views from the balcony were stunning. Once we were settled in our room we went to take a stroll around and found that there wasnt much to do unless you do some paid activities that the hotel puts on. The bech is very close but it was...

We stayed for overnight and we rented the Family Villa. Hot water was not working.The other room I rented for my friends the TV wasnt working at all. But we were here for the view. White sand beach is the key to being here. They had 2 pools and unfortunately only 1 was open for public. We had a batch... More

I agree with most of the reviews that the best part about this resort are the views and the interior landscape. The views from the infinity pools are especially nice. Rooms are just average and don't expect 5-star hotel cleanliness. I would say, hotel is clean but a bit old (eg. restroom wall stained, doors slightly damaged for example) The... More
