I particularly loved the food here and its large selection of beers from Cerveza Negra to Konig. The rooms though may need some renovation. Although water pressure was strong at the shower room, the shower head was broken and the water heater was not working. The AC was too noisy at night. They may need to upgrade it to a... More

After nearly not making it here (car broke down in Tarlac, and we needed to get a ride from there by Minivan), I'm glad we didn't miss this trip. Over 5 nights, between the well equipped hotel and the surfing, I managed to unwind and enjoy every moment. The garden rooms are good enough, clean, though the bed was hard... More

We recently stayed for 5 nights… what a great place! The resort is positioned in the middle of a beautiful beach enjoying stunning sunsets every night. The grounds are well maintained and the atmosphere is relaxing amongst the gardens and Filipino- Balinese style rooms. The staff are very welcoming and friendly creating a happy family orientated vibe. With big smiles... More

This hotel is located about 15-20 minutes (by car or jeep) from San Fernando city; the garden rooms were clean but very small and basic, the pool has a great view of the beach and sea and the staff were somewhat friendly. We found the hotel totally overpriced for how it sold itself as a spa resort. The room we... More

Not bad, not good and better run than most resorts in the Philippines. A few tips: 1)Don't call the place for a booking between 6p-10p, because the band is playing and the receptionist won't be able to hear you. 2)Prepare to throw down a cash deposit of 2000 pesos when you get there. They can't/won't block a deposit on your... More

My family and I went here for the holidays and stayed overnight before heading to Baguio City. We enjoyed the view of the beach by the infinity pool and we like it that despite the holiday season the resort was able to control the number of people getting in the resort. This prevented the place from getting overcrowded. Though Kahuna... More

Fresh new Kahuna is a diamond in the rough of crummy to mediocre places along this stretch. Their attractive well kept beach front is probably the best for beginner to intermediate surfers. The adjacent beach to the north was much rougher, but it was nice for walking. Surfing was indeed good and there was often a swell where there wasn't... More

I hidden beach spot for surfers and hanging out. This place is the one place you must stay! Great rooms, staff, food, and superb international level service and a cool vibe not found in the provinces. Lots to do beyond surfing and chilling, but you need to ask.

Booking in Kahuna was a last minute decision but we definitely do not regret staying here. When I looked at the available rooms on-line, the site indicated that no rooms were available. However, just as I was about to send my deposit from a more expensive resort (a day prior to our stay), one of Kahuna's booking agents called me... More
