This small resort has seen better times, yet it has some very wonderful and special attributes and..
Very special setting on the water facing Batan Island, and Rapu-rapu. The seascape pool and awsome views coupeld with the uniqueness of the rooms/bathrooms makes it a special place. The pool is great and the rooms facing the pool are a true delight. Rona and Nicole were truly responsive to our needs and aimed to please.
We phoned/texted in advance to be picked up in Sorsogon. The text reply said that wouldn't be possible since their vehicle was broken. When we arrived, the reception was quite neutral. After a bit, we were shown our room. I think it was the bamboo room...very large with huge bed and bath. Really quite unique with lot's of electrical switches controlling lights and fans. After exploring the room a bit, we found the doors to the lanai would not close and the tiny TV unworkable and the room suffered from differed maintenence.. We phoned down and the TV was quickly replaced and welcome drinks provided. That night we found that the AC couldn't keep the room cool, probably beacause the warm air blowing through the open door. We also found there was no hot water and the chairs on the lanai quite uncomfortable. So the next morning we asked to be moved to another room and our request was quickly agreed to.
Our new room by the pool was great. Only problem the lanai door would not close all the way, yet the A/C was able to keep the room cool...just loved the room and the lanai. They didn't have room safes.
There are no eating or shopping establishments nearby so all meals were taken at the hotel. Limited menu and the food was satisfactory but not remarkable. One night I ordered pork loin and got a skinny chicken leg. The wine was excessively expensive...$30 plus for table wine...
The atmoshere, unlike most all smaller resorts I have been, was not happy.
I guess the biggest downer of our stay was the fact that 6,000 pesos and $300 were stolen from our room......even though we were rarely far away from it. Lesson learned.
We departed on a tryke, still no vehicle available, sadly disppointed.
