The staff were good but the property manager Phoebe gave us a hard time.. saying we cant park our rented car inside the resort. Which is very upsetting for someone who is paying $1,500 for the villa. I dont get why a guest is not allowed to park inside the resort they are staying at. The property manager Phoebe even called us at 12am just to scream at us the guest to remove the car. She was so paranoid and accused us of being drug peddlers. Just because a yacht stopped in front of our beach front from our villa. We dont even know there was a boat in the water since we were barely there because we went out. Anyway you can still try and book at this place just know this review serves as a warning. Also to add to that all the promised inclusions was not available at the time.
Pool villa number 10 was great i give it a 10 but d food im so sorry its worst and even beach was so frustrating such a scam beach full of sea urchins and hightide was knee deep.. spa???? I was already at d handuraw spa and d lady told me to go back to d front desk amd make a booking first.. was suppose to relax and have a massage before dinner time..🤬😡😳
If I could give negative rating to this Eskaya Beach Resort in Panglao Island, Bohol Philippines, I would. This is the worst experience I ever experienced in a resort that seemed to be well acclaimed to be one of the best in the island of Bohol when it comes to Luxury Resorts. What a disappointment and am very disgusted! I booked this via Amex Travel to make sure I get the best experience in a Luxury Hotel in my Hometown, as what other 5 Star reviews I read only to find out those 5 Star reviews were all old. Clearly there is an obvious decline in the management of this resort. I don't understand what happened here...But why the unbelievable attitudes of the staff starting from the front desk and the unbelievable restrictions imposed on the guests? We totally felt like in a prison environment, totally the opposite of a luxury hotel. What a shame! The ambiance is still there, the beautiful infinity pool and the whole landscape is still there but to let go of the quality staff ( seemed to be so untrained), of food served and the service is unacceptable! The Villa we were staying at, while private and beautiful with the native ambiance was very dirty it made me not even want to use the bathrooms! The bathroom sink, while supplied with the standard toiletries, is surrounded by molds! There is a jacuzzi tub that is so full of dirt, insects and just utter grossness, it's so clear they were not cleaned. Never mind that it had a private pool in the villa I was staying, the dirty place? I could imagine how dirty that pool is and unmaintained The coffee provided in the room is a cheap instant Nescafe powder with uncleaned coffee cups and used napkins... it's gross! This is NOT a luxury standard by any means.On the contrary, it is a very expensive filthy prison cell. On top of this, the lady in the front desk who claimed she is the only one that I could talk to when I tried to complain about their poor service and attitudes was very rude! They treated their guests like prisoners. They took our keys and kept them and when one day we needed to leave at around 5 am because we needed to go to town to look for migraine medication, we were told not to leave till 6 am because the guards would not allow us. Are you kidding me??? The worst experience I have ever had and I am an avid traveler and I am very familiar to how luxury hotels operate. I happen to be a Marriott Ambassador Elite member AND Hyatt Globalist this year and I have traveled the world being from Los Angeles,and I have stayed at Grand Hyatt Manila in BGC and Marriott Manila Hotel for 2 weeks total before flying to Bohol, my home town, and what a big disappointment....maybe the right word is disgusted. I have had great experiences staying at the other Bohol resorts in my previous visits. I was very happy when I stayed at Amorita Resort, also in Panglao before, which is why I was so inspired to want to stay at Eskaya. But, I will never go back to this place ever again and I will make sure no one among my family and friends will ever make a mistake to choose Eskaya. This resort is more of a Hell in a Paradise setting, only that you have to pay a high price (luxury price ) to be in jail. If could give a negative rating b the stars I would. I tried to get a refund on my money on the first day I discovered how bad this was so I could move to another place, but alas, I prepaid Amex Travel and Eskaya would not refund .I REPEAT, Do NOT make a mistake of going there, or you will regret it. There are a lot of beautiful and well kept resorts to choose from in Bohol nowadays . There is something going on management wise....very bad.…
The worst resort you can possibly stay in Panglao. Rented 3 villas for our stay in December priced at about $800 per night. No amenities except for an outdated pool with a non-functional pool bar. Flat pillows, rooms need updating- some lights not working, leak stain marks on the ceiling, a rat on top of the ceiling waking us up in the middle of the night. Terrible service, most of the items on the menu are not available such as fruits which you can easily find on the market.
My wife & I stayed at Eskaya for 5 nights in April 2022. And whilst there are some positives there are a number of large negatives that people should be aware of before booking. On the positive side, the hotel's design is lovely (albeit dated); the team are very friendly and really try their best, the chef is clearly very talented - the food quality was very good and probably best of all is the location - Eskaya is located slightly up from the beach and is incredibly peaceful, a perfect place to relax. Unfortunately there are a number of negatives which really do make this a very over-priced resort. The rooms are well designed, but are very dated; each room has telephones but the telephones do not work - at all; our television was not working for 2 of the 5 nights; despite the hotel saying they offer an overnight laundry service, they do not; the water pressure in the bathroom is non-existent, to the point where the rain shower doesn't work; there is no hot water in the rooms; there were two lights in the bedroom that could not be turned off at night (at all); many of the staff were not wearing masks; there are regular brown-outs - but the generator can take up to 20 minutes to start; for 3 days there were no cold drinks available; a pre-booked tour guide wasn't allowed into the resort on one day to collect us, despite a tour guide being allowed in the previous day; there was no manager on duty to talk to after 5pm. The team at the resort are very friendly and I feel sorry for them. My biggest complaint is that there is a complete lack of management at the hotel. During our stay we did not see a manager of any type once. The team are lovely but very few are trained. If you go to other hotels nearby, South Palms you can see a big difference, despite South Palms being half the price. This resort has the potential to be stunning, but it needs a complete change of management.…
Let me start by saying the place is beautiful and does offer privacy. Caveat- choose your villa well. Villa 15 is lovely, while 10 looks out into the kitchen and you can smell what everyone will be having. Villa 10 was just unkempt- TV, ref and safety deposit box weren’t working. No cups, glasses, etc. Overall, the place is in need of a good manager. Attention to detail and going the extra mile, which you would expect from a pricey and supposedly upscale place is non existent. We arrived at 1pm, clearly the place was empty but front desk still insisted on a 2pm check in. There was a welcoming committee but not even a cold towel or drink. Sent several emails to confirm details of our stay but this was still not clear upon check in. Ordered room service Thursday, dishes weren’t collected until Sunday. The beach is neglected. Deck chairs are dirty and just plopped down, no towels, no service. No tours offered. You’re pretty much left to figure things out on your own once you check in. Shuttle service pretty non existent as well. Booked one for 2pm, it arrived at 3 with no apologies. Agree with another reviewer who said it felt deserted more than private. Restaurant staff was nice but quite clueless. Food was okay. All of this would have been ok if it didn’t bill and price itself as premium. Clearly adjustments need to be made.…
Eskaya is one of the resort i had in my bucket list..... so when we decided to spend our much awaited vacation for this year..... we are very much expecting so much from this resort....unfortunately, it wasnt the vacation we were hoping for...... Poor service..... Room is not well kept..... and yes...we have an unwanted visitor.... a mouse!!!! It is not worth the price we paid for 3 nights and 4 days..... surrounding premises not well maintained.... and beach area is super dirty...... what a disappointment..... Please do not spend your money here.....learned from us.... No rating for this resort...as in negative!!!!
My husband and I decided to celebrate our 8th year anniversary in Eskaya, I would say that our experience was traumatic… When we booked Eskaya, we received a call from them asking who we are, from where we are, what business do we have and I personally find it so rude. Why do Eskaya need to ask for our whereabouts? Is it because we are local? And that we are not Artista???!! We already made the payment of 60k plus for two nights so it was impossible for us to cancel it, so we push through with the stay. During our stay, in fairness, the staff were friendly and the chef at the restaurant is really a good cook 👍 Kudos to that!!! However, our concern was that, we were supposed to have our anniversary shoot and I needed a makeup artist. (Only 1 makeup artist) they didn’t allow her to get in. So what we did was we opened another hotel near Eskaya and we had our makeup done there!! Pretty stupid, I was really trying to compose myself and remain calm because I don’t want to ruin my day. Eskaya could have allotted a space for visitors if they don’t want them to enter the villas. Their policies really sucks! And it’s inconvenient. We will never again go back to Eskaya!!! We had stayed in Burj Al Arab last 2018 during our 5th year anniversary, they are one of the most expensive hotels in the world, but they don’t treat guest like eskaya did!!! They’re not even strict with visitors… we had friends and families invited for dinner to celebrate with us. Seriously, we didn’t have a good time. My husband was pissed off because of Eskaya policies! And he kept on blaming me why we stayed in Eskaya. So basically, the anniversary celebration was not a happy one! HOPE YOU ARE HAPPY AND PROUD OF WHAT YOU DID ESKAYA! Also. They didn’t even have a complimentary cake or roses on the bed…. No effort at all Eskaya In addition to that, they transferred us to another room Room #17 on the 2nd day since our 1st room’s AC is not working and their phones are not working. They had to call the IT 🤦🏼♀️ Their pillows are not soft too in Room#16. Their master bedroom is quite small and there is no comfort room. We had to go outside passed by the room sala to pee on midnight. Also, there’s a lot of mosquitoes 🦟…
Ezkaya is a must-see place for couples and families who want privacy and exclusivity without having to lock yourself in the villa just to get that. The beach, pool, and outdoor amenities and private villas exude natural and simple elegance. It is sp beautiful witjout trying to hard. To top it off, the people in Ezkaya are all smiles making the stay just so peaceful and easy and relaxed. That is what a vacation is all about. Thank you Ezkaya!! Cannot wait to book your infinity villas :)
A previous reviewer who, like me, clearly spent a number of nights here, was pretty spot on with their comments, most of which I echo. I paid A$930 a night for an Infinity Pool Villa, for which I expected something truly outstanding. As a comparison, for $A750 a night I can get a harbour view room at the majestic Peninsula Hotel in Hong Kong...one of the great hotels of the world. The villa itself was nice enough apart from the pile of empty beer cans and other garbage that had fallen down, unnoticed, behind the TV console. The open air bathroom was also OK, with an old and uncomfortable spa bath, but in general the whole villa felt a bit tired and unloved. 3/4-star, perhaps, but certainly not 5-star. The food was awful. I had an oily dish of pasta on the first night and didn’t bother again with dinner. And the breakfasts were similarly dire. At best it was canteen quality and by the third day I started I going into town to the excellent Gavroche, for croissants and decent coffee. So, despite the website promise of an opulent experience it delivered way below my expectations. I could not, in any honesty, recommend this place to anyone!…
