We just got back and had a great trip - the resort, staff and facilities were amazing. I have never written a review but felt I should mention one thing to travelers. We were expecting a beautiful beachfront like Cebu and were a bit disappointed. There were signs for jelly fish and we did not see one person swimming the entire 5 days we were there. The water was quite rough and the beach chairs were way back towards the pool, not near the water at all. We were looking forward to a beach vacation with our 2 year old son.
that said, the pool is wonderful and the baby pool is the best we have seen in asia. The food was also the best we have experienced and we have traveled quite a bit. Overall, we loved the resort but would have liked to have known about the beach.
