We stayed here overnight only on our way to Baguio and, I can't say that we immensely enjoyed our stay. The pool is tiny. Website pictures can really be deceiving. Service was substandard. For the price that we paid (about Php 7K), our room was small for a family of 2 adults and 2 kids. Room only had a queen... More

(+) 1. Nice staff, the waiters & waitresses at their in house resto were all attentive 2. Relatively good food and fairly priced 3. Not a 4 or 5 star resort most definitely but Kahuna is probably the nicest resort in the strip 4. Food and other restos outside the resort are readily accessible, you can just walk or take... More

This place was an excellent destination for my wife and I as we were looking to go for a quick getaway to a beach resort in the Philippines. The views were lovely and the pool was so warm (as was the ocean in June). One thing that I did not expect was how absolutely fantastic the food was. From the... More

The resort is clean, well maintained, nice place to stay overnight. Your spa services was un available. The front desk staff was disappointing, you do not advertise if you can't deliver. Dining staffs are also not attentive and ruin the ambiance by their senseless things they're doing. Food is average, nothing very special...but the view is spectacular. Kahuna was inspired... More

The resort was clean, new and had great customer service. We had the rooms by the pool #2 & #3. The food was okay and the waiters were excellent in their service. I had an unfortunate incident of being stung by a jellyfish. The resort had staff that were trained to do first aid. They were genuinely concern for me... More

We just got back from La Union and have stayed in Kahuna for 3D2N. It can be easily located since it is 15min away from the city (San Fernando). Reception was quick and room can be provided once available even though official check in time is 2PM. The concept of room design is very impressive. It's like having your own... More

I made the booking directly because I've been contemplating of getting 3 Garden rooms because we are a family of 9. Good thing, the girl at the reservation convinced me to get the Resthouse. My family enjoyed the big space...having 3 huge bedrooms and 2 jacuzzis... and fully equipped kitchen and 2 dining area. The Resthouse is just what we... More

PROS: Nice location, clean beach, along the road. Nice personnels/staff/waiters etc. CONS: Overpriced. The rooms were smaller than expected. The bed was a bit hard. We had problems with the keys but they fixed it. Furniture was not that "wow" as portayed in the photos. The pool is way smaller that what is in the website.

This was our last event of the Summer of 2015 and we can't have it any better than this. The place is a tropical paradise in the surfing capital of the country. The check in staff is very accomodating. The concierge and the bellboys go the extra mile like getting extension cords or even fix the cable wires. The complimentary... More
