“Ripoff - what a scam”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013 via mobile

Awful shacks for rooms. A mangrove trying to pass as a swamp. The grounds were a dirt road carpark. They charged European prices for rooms. When I told them their ad on Agoda was misleading they blanked me. Their rooms were truly shabby. The water was very far away and the beach was very dirty. The 'food court' was a shack as well. I wasn't expecting anything fancy but even this took my breathe away mostly because of the prices they are charging.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

We were 20 persons, my 16 yr daughter birthday and her friends and the accommodation, food, service and general surroundings were excellent. The resort is new and very well situated being some 25min from the airport. The best though is Ms Rose the manager who can arrange anything, tours, vans, food and came up with such good ideas as what to do. We all enjoyed ourselves.
The beach is great, and the sea clean and clear but level of water is shallow from 30cm to 120cm. A swimming pool is being built at the resort and should be ready in early 2013.
The sun rise at 5.30am is truly wonderful.

We all 20 dined at Kinabuchs Grill & Bar on Rizal Rd. and all agreed it was the best meal we have ever had in the Philippines. Excellent value and choice, try the crocodile the veg is a bit spicy but the taste unique.

Room Tip: all rooms are good the family room comfortably sleeps 3 but can extend
