Very very disappointing place! Rude staff, untrained! Hilarious rules and policies. No knifes, so if u bring lechon u have to use your mouth to chop it! But how sure they are that those people ddnt carry "balisong" if u dont even check their pockets? Ur concern is safety but u over do it! And make ur guest pissed off.... More

Photos must be some 20yrs ago place looks nothing like them. The place was dirty and disrepair isn't the word for the place. Good it was only for a day visit. watch out for the Taxi driver's if the resort phones one for you, the one that turned up for us wanted to charge us 100 Peso's just to get... More

We were not treated like costumers! We were treated like prisoners and thieves! They only have the beach and nothing else. Staffs were not polite at all. They check the stuffs on the room when u check in, which is so disturbing and inaproriate. They make sure u dont steal anything from the room. Worst experience!! Dont waste your money... More

crowded resort, place is not idealistic, it could get very disappointing. the place is smelly, unclean, and non hygienic for people to visit, if you need to go to a beach go anywhere but not here. restrooms, dressing rooms and paid shower rooms they're all dirty.

We was here only for a daytrip. Resort was crowded. Although water was clean, floor was rocky, mossy and slippery. Slides were dirty. Restrooms, dressing rooms and paid shower rooms they re all dirty . We rented a paddle boat and the boatman brought us farther outshore, past plantation bay, we anchored somewhere here and swam till we got tired.

Relaxing resort by the water. Plenty of water activities available. The staff are very friendly. Good meals. The rooms are very large with 2 King sized beds, There are about 7 rooms that are out over the water with a magnificent view.

Staff are all rude! Tried going there a couple of times. Each experience the same - disappointing and unpleasant! This resort has the most strange policies. The moment you walk towards their entrance gate, the guard will immediately close the gate and will tell you that only 2 persons are allowed to go inside to check the place. From the... More
