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.

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 :)

Bad management. Worse manager. Dirty private pool. . No pump. Dirty room . Infinity pool is dirty in my villa You open at covid 19 you should be ready. . All is dirty. I pay 21,000 just to be in my room. They like to downgrade me in a small villa but still pay the same amount. . No refund policy is really crazy. . I call the manager week ago . They say public pool and restaurant will be okey but....

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!

Overall good experience. Very private and relaxing, which is good because we don’t like crowded places and everyone are very welcoming and kind. However few concerns: 1. Food choices are limited and overpriced, food for me tastes 6/10 2. Housekeeping failed to throw the garbage out, also did not fix our beds (for 2 nights), but they cleaned the dining area and refilled the bottled waters, so am not sure what happened there 3. We did not like how we were responded in emails, answers were too short and vague. Sounded to us that our requests were not being heard or just brushed off 4. There should be a buzzer from the beach area to call on the servers because it’s a bit far to call the server from the resto just to ask for water or just wait for someone to pass by

We stayed at this hotel for six nights as the chill-out part of our trip to the Philippines so have a pretty good insight into its operations. This hotel does have some good points but it is badly let down by others, if we came to Panglao again we would stay at the superior Amorita at Alona Beach or South Palms both of which are half the price. The hotel has about 20 villas and we stayed in No 15, a sea view villa with private pool on the sea side (some have them tucked around the back). The villa was large, airy and clean, good TV and surprisingly good WiFi- all good. The general landscaping is attractive and well looked after although the pool and pool area is a bit tired. Unfortunately from here my comments are less positive, as you will have seen from the other reviews, the breakfast is terrible, most the other food is very poor, we stopped eating meals other than breakfast (coffee, toast & watermelon) in the hotel after Day 3 and had lunch 10 mins walk to the East at the very nice South Palms Resort (also worth looking at) and dinner generally at the Amorita Hotel. Although the beach was swept, a few chairs and umbrellas were plonked on the beach, no towels, water, showers, service and the water toys were minimal and ancient, the foregoing is OK as long as not paying a premium price. The beach is so much nicer at South Palms so we swam there. The other slightly disconcerting thing is that the resort did not feel exclusive but deserted (it was 80% full), the maximum number of people we shared the restaurant with was four (always set for 50+) and often it was only us there, ditto swimming pool and only saw about eight people on the beach the whole stay. The staff were friendly but lacking leadership, we did not see any senior leadership team the whole time we were there. With a decent GM and a complete shake up of the catering this could be a top resort - not yet and the price point is definitely wrong. (As an aside, whilst we were there we watched the same tiramisu, bread & butter pudding and mango creme brûlée going around in the display fridge for the whole six days we were there (could still be there) - I hope they do not serve it to anybody) - we became fascinated with how long it would remain - photos available! (Also, and very strangely, when we arrived the receptionist would not allow us to charge anything to the room and stated they wanted payment for everything as an when - we refused as we did not want to carry money/cards around - they relented).

The Eskaya experience means getting pampered all throughout your stay that by the time you have to go, you wouldn't actually want to leave. It truly was one of the best tropical vacations I've had. Ever. 1. Service One of the many amazing things about Eskaya is the service. All staff members were warm, polite, and always alert. There are times when you don't even have to ask, they just instinctively provide what you need with much enthusiasm. In the afternoon, a staff member would be at our door and give us complimentary snacks (delicious local delicacies). When we inquired about the usage of kayak, they gave us the time when it will be high tide and when we got to the beach at the designated time, everything was already arranged for us, we really just had to hop on the kayak. But for me, the best part was the massage at the Handuraw Spa. It was just beyond amazing. And this is coming from a person who regularly gets a massage. 2. Villa The deluxe villa looks so beautiful--from the high wooden ceiling to the outdoor showers and jacuzzi. It was just everything I could ever ask for in a romantic getaway! There's an infinity pool in which we can swim in silence after spending hours at the beach. There's a balcony, which I gotta say is my favorite part, with two comfortable beds from where you can view the sea in quiet contemplation. And if you just want to chill or watch TV in the room, you can borrow DVDs from the front desk. 3. Location and Amenities Eskaya is barely a 5-minute drive from the Tagbilaran airport and sits on a nice spot on the beach with white sand and clear waters.There are a lot of activities to do in the resort, just check out the stuff in the front desk and you'll never run out of things to do. The stuff provided for in the villa were more than sufficient. Even rubber slippers (aside from the customary bedroom slippers) as well as a beach bag were provided. Eskaya is a really beautiful resort but what I liked best about it is that the whole place is quiet. It's like we were the only ones there. It's just perfect for a vacation away form the hustle and bustle of the metro.
