Together with my husband to be, we spent 2 nights here on nov this year. Travelling from Camiguin Island was very much exhausting that took us almost the whole day to get to the resort. We were expecting actually a pleasant and warm welcome from this resort but unfortunately it was nothing. The place seems strange without customers. We didnt have the chance to choose the room we would like to stay. The person in charge(i dont want to name names), she doesnt know how to treat well customers. She even addressed me as "day" in bisayan term means katulong. That was very unpolite. The room we stayed was just basic and not at all cozy. Bugs were found inside the room, no hot and cold shower, tv has no remote control and you still have to ask for it in the reception area, no rug to dry your wet feet from having a shower. That is room#8. Doesn't suit our romantic personality.
At night bugs,mosquitoes and flying insects were present in the restaurant. The chicken served to me was not well grilled. Few blood were seen in the chicken meat. No proper stocks of fruit juices and shakes. Food were not tasteful and expensive. Men were there drinking liquors and that felt like we were in a bar. Staff were unfriendly,unpolite and doesnt know how to treat customers well.
The following morning, we decided to eat breakfast outside facing the sea but what we saw was a dirty beach, tables were just covered with coca-cola table cloth, chairs were still wet. That was never appealing. Big and small boats were found in the beach in front of that resort. You dont even want to swim in the sea because its dirty and the only exception was it was white sand. But that's it. Breakfast meals were not at all tasteful and continental plate was just only 4 slices of bread approximately 1 spoon of jam. and 1 spoon of imported butter. No fruits served, there were no ham at all..That was really ridiculous. We dont call it continental.
However,we made it to the point that we enjoyed our experience for the whole day most especially in the sea tour.
When we were about to check-out, i was paying bills.They were charging us 500php from tagbilaran terminal to this resort in Panglao and we received NO information of that amount from the very first day we reached there. We were really mad. Why were they charging us a big amount with that distance for only 10-15 minutes ride??? when in fact they was even a van driver from Jagna port who offered us 100php travelling from that port to Panglao for more or less 2 hours. I was mad but I kept my respect by saying them how we felt staying there with a low voice. We never heard anyone saying thank you for you stay here after checking out. Nothing really. So we decided to take a motorbike going to tagbilaran terminal and take a van to Jagna port. Never again honestly.
I DONT RECOMMEND ANYONE TO STAY IN THIS RESORT. DONT WASTE YOUR VALUABLE AND HARD EARNED MONEY JUST FOR A RESORT LIKE THIS. TRAVEL WISE AND SEARCH THE PLACE WELL NOT JUST MERELY RECOMMENDED. GET YOURSELF INFORMED BEFORE BOOKINGS.
