Don't see any particular reason to go stay here. Chalet style accommodation, very spread out, artificial pools, expensive food and drink, mosquitoes, if it rains its horrible getting around, far from the city, far from everywhere, old rooms which are quite basic, sad plumbing in the bathrooms, tiny safe-box, old towels. On the plus side, you can do nothing here.... More

My whole family found this hotel to be the loveliest they have ever stayed in. We stayed for a full week, which is probably about the longest amount of time we would recommend, as it is in quite a remote location, and the activities, shows and food at the hotel seem to repeat on a weekly basis. The hotel is... More

We've stayed there just after Christmas for a romantic get away with my partner, his sister & her husband. Pros: -there are plenty of swimming pools to choose from, they have salt & fresh water pools so if you are not a big fan of chlorine you can dip yourself in their salt water pool...and it is authentic as the...

Our room was in Nile Hall. nice room with the lagoon just a few feet away from our back door. The staff were very professional and friendly. my wife and i and our 2 kids ages 3 and 6 all had a great time. We stayed there for 7 days. The only thing about it is the long distance location... More

We chose this hotel over the Shangri-la because it was featured on the Conde Nast list and their spa was voted as one of the best in the Philippines. We were also attracted by their no tipping policy, which we thought would enable us to enjoy our four day holiday without much worry. With hindsight, we definitely should have chosen... More

Located just 20 minutes away from Mactan airport. Service is good, staffers are courteous and efficient despite the NO TIPPING POLICY in the resort. Facilities are nice and well kept (except the lagoon floor in front of the reception that needs some scrubbing as it was already a bit mossy and slippery at the time we were there). Altogether, the... More

The resort has good pools and fairly good food at its restaurants, but there is not beach and their service staff is not up to par for a high-end resort. We had dirty dishes from room service sit outside of our room for 3 days and housekeeping was non-existent. Requests for service were ignored.

Me and hubby spent our 1st wedding anniversary here and it was amazing! We stayed in a lagoon view room for 3 nights and did lots of the activities available within the resort (biking,kayak, firing range, jetski, we even got to try the giant slides in Mogambo falls! & of course the diving rock). Spent a good time in the... More

Ive never had the unfortunate accursedness of staying in a place which looked so good in the brochure, and yet was the worst place ive ever stayed, the staff were intolerable, drinks never came, and when friends came to visit us we were slapped with 2000PHP each for them to simply come inside to see us, surprising us with an...
