The setting is beautiful. The beach is nothing to write home about but I go for the diving. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Other than the rock hard beds and the 2 inch flat screen.
The Filipino staff are amazing! The ex-pat staff members seem to be very rude to there Filipino staff members. Maybe they forget they are guests in there country. Dive shop and diving was terrific. Especially Apo island!!! Great dive guides and boat men.
The food was like any where else in the phils nothing to get excited about. They know they have you trapped so no happy hour and no good deals on mixed drinks. So I drank San Migs.
Over all it was a very nice place. I would definitely recommend it for a dive vacation. Not if your looking for a nice beach and a romantic getaway.
Oh yeah one of my biggest pet peeves are signs. I'm paying good money to stay in your resort. Don't tell me not to bring outside food or drinks onto the property! Really? They need every penny?
