The property is rather clean and manicured. We reserved two de luxe rooms that were adjoining so it was quiet convenient. The rooms have a native/bohemian flare and are clean and spacious.
RESTAURANT/ FOOD/ SERVICE
The restaurant and bar looks like it has been renovated and has a modern twist compared to the rooms. Their two page menu does not offer much options and their portions are quiet small for what you pay for. We were sick of the food by the second day. When we ordered a meal for lunch or dinner we would be waiting between 30 minutes to an hour; which I think is unacceptable when the resort was not even full (only 10 huts were vacant). The waiters and waitresses are not very pleasant. They take your order, bring your food to your table and then disappear. On our last days we gave out tips to the ones that served us throughout our stay even though I felt it wasn't deserved and as soon as we did that we got smiles, "hellos", "how are yous" and exceptional service. The only ones that were courteous to us were the receptionists.
BEACH AND POOL
The beach, restaurant and rooms are not conveniently located to each other so you get quiet a workout walking and climbing stairs. The pool was dirty with leaves floating in the water and sand on the bottom. The beach was nice and private. The sand is rough with shells and rocks. The color of the water was beautiful. It's quiet amazing to see an array of beautiful colored fish. They charged for all the sports activities and the excursions were super expensive; be prepared to spend over $200 us per person.
My family and I used their spa services at least 3 times. I personally had a full body massage and the cucumber and yoghurt wrap. The massage was relaxing. The wrap mixture helped relieve my sunburn but when they wrapped me they used a tarp (tarp that you would use for camping). I did not feel papered from that point on.
My family and I stayed for 5 nights. Overall I think this resort was overly priced for what you get and overrated. Would not return and would not recommend this to anyone. There are so many more islands and resorts in the Philippines that have exceptional service, with a phenomenal beach and awesome food.
