My experience at Spider House Resort was mixed, this is probably because of Typhoon Haiyan which passed nearby and caused damage though.
There was no hot water, wifi, dessert (I like ice cream) or electricity during the day time while I was there! Despite these issues, clearly caused by the devastating typhoon and not necessarily a reflection of the place itself there were some issues.
Such as, even when the power worked at night there were only two small fans to cool the room. It can get hot in the room especially with the morning light shining through the curtains and bamboo shades.
Also, 90% of the time the staff were excellent except one or two who did seem to have an attitude problem. Especially when the bartender short changed me on purpose, well, didn't give back any change at all. Also, when inquiring about my reservation payment the staff said they would follow up on it, over the course of three days they never did. It was only resolved when one of the other staff members who knew the answer to the question resolved it then and there. It could have been resolved earlier if they followed up on my requests.
Despite these issues, 90% of the staff provided excellent service and I feel alot of the negatives were probably just stressors from the typhoon.
I recommend it, especially for the food/views!
