I'm at the resort right now, writing this review because I'm so disappointed. This is a 3 star resort charging 5 star prices. I've lived and travelled in SE Asia for 10 years now and cannot believe how overpriced this place is. In Thailand or Vietnam, you'd have a private plunge pool villa for the same price, with rustic chic... More

These apartments are located directly on the beachfront, less than 10 minutes walking from the best nightlife spots of the islands, and 5 minutes from the mall. Our apartment was spacious and luminous, with a fully equipped kitchen. The place is cleaned everyday and you have complimentary mattresses and lounge chairs on the beach during your stay. The staff is... More

the hotel is just a stone's throw away from the shoreline, pubs, restaurants and grocery stores. Housekeeping is done every single day, so guests who intend to stay for long are rest assured of a clean and comfy room during their whole stay. The staff are very friendly and hospitable too. They always greet their guests with smile each time... More

Great location right on the beach. Rooms were large and comfortable. It was lovely to wake in the morning and walk straight into the crystal clear water. The staff were pleasant and friendly. Only one negative would be the noise in the evening however we were pretty tired most nights that it wasn't too much of a problem.

We stayed here late 2010, we had a private transfer, staff were excellent, very helpful. There were 4 adults and we stayed in the 2 storey penthouse (Hanuno'o). We had a kitchen, where the maid would cook breakfast in the morning, however we usually ate out. Daily maid service, kind of decent wifi and perfect location, right on the beach,... More

I was there a long time back but remember this by the great treatment we received and how this opened up to the beach. Compared to the price absolutely great

Firstly we were upgraded to the 2 bedroom absolute beachfront room which was very clean, modern and comfortable - the beds were amazing. It had an excellent view of... More
