Most of the reviews seem overrated but everything is REAL!
Upon reading all raving reviews on this site, my partner and I feel the need to visit this resort. I, myself have read several blogs and they contained the same commendation. It was peak season then, we were lucky to have the last poolside suite available on that specific date. Glenn, who happens to be the most accommodating GM I've ever met, took care everything from the hour of our arrival in Cebu until the last minute we spent at the resort. Whatever nationality you have, you're assured that the treatment is impartial and with utmost generosity; evidence of a five-star service. Ask me to define their chambermaids-- Cleanliness, personified! And of course, who wouldn't love their in-house Chef, Patrick. For the whole duration of our stay, I always ask Patrick to prepare something that's off their menu and he never fails me.
For a Phil. standard resort, this is quite expensive to be honest but it was worth it. You will surely love everyone's genuine smile and hospitality. This is certainly a piece of paradise. I'll be back soon. :)
