We went to this beautiful place this year, April during our month-long Philippine-holiday. Stayed for one night, booked for two rooms. Amazing location. Very Greece-like, location was quiet, just perfect for us. Also, casino is nearby which is a plus for some of us,haha...Location wise, about 2 hours away from the Dagupan City Pangasinan. Very approachable and friendly staff around the hotel area and always happy to answer questions or address further needs to the room. Great room facilities, Sea Side View. Didnt try the bar so can't comment on that. Breakfast included with the room and it was definitely 5-star. It is actually a star-studded place...we saw some politicians and known government employees, celebrities etc. Also, bikes are free to hire to explore the resort's compound. Golf course in situ, though we didnt use this facility. Great great great place and will defintitely come back!
Casino- Free food&drinks-but beware, due to high demands, choices ca be limited-but can't complain for FREE food! Great restaurat within the casino, though can be slightly costly for some. Live band playing at night. Hundreds of slot machines and several tables for those who fancy playing cards etc. Low start of bet available for those who just want to have fun!
-There was 4 of us in the room and yet there was only 1 toothbrush and 1 small toothpaste given, and two pairs of slippers -.- however this was immediately resolved when we informed the receptionists delivering further towels and other toiletries etc. suitable for 4 peope!There was also a complimentary bottled water kept/delivered straight to your room everyday.
-Casino: well, great atmosphere just encountered few arrogant players though we just ignored this. Casino staff- though majority of them were polite, they needed to brush up on their professionalism, one male staff who I asked for help regarding slots gladly helped me indeed but after few hours later, sent his female colleague asking for my no. -.- and wont take a No for an answer until I said I'm engaged (clearly a lie).
Over all, would I recommend the place, yes!
