When I booked my stay at this resort, I booked a Standard room. That was a mistake. It was more like a shed. It was a horrible little room. It was dark and there was a gap between the wall and the floor, so you could totally see the outside. I was nervous that a creature from the outside was going to crawl in, so I was not comfortable there. So I asked for an upgrade. The Deluxe room was much nicer, but a lot more expensive. I thought that they may have offered a discounted upgrade because I was one of three guests on the property, but they didn't. At that point, I didn't care. Having just ridden in a van two hours from Puerto Princesa, I didn't feel like going back.
Also when I booked, I asked if the resort took credit cards. I was told that the resort did. Upon checkout, I was informed that they did not take cards at the resort. I would have to go into the office in Puerto Princesa to pay.
The Deluxe room was nice. It was more like a hotel room. The only complaint that I had about the room was that the power went out on the first night, but I guess that would’ve affected the entire place.
The grounds could use better upkeep in some places. There were coconuts and palm leaves all over the walk to the beach. Also, the pool water looked a bit murky. I’m not sure what the upkeep is like during the busier season.
The restaurant had a fairly large menu and everything that I tried tasted good.
I’m not sure if I would recommend it or not. I am on the fence. There were some good things and not so good.
