Beautiful views, amazing rock formations at the beach and nice, quiet room. But what made the difference between a nice place and a perfect holiday was the personal touch. The owners and staff went out of their way to understand our wishes and to make suggestions for things to do. We went snorkeling twice and snorkeling here was clearly better... More

This is a bogus review. We have not run the back-up generator at night at any time in the last 2 years. During the couple of (daytime) hours a month when it is necessary to run it, it is barely audible in any of the guest rooms.

We booked this place as it seemed to be the best diving resort in Leyte. It is an exceptionally beautifully set place with its own private beach. The food was great but be aware it is expensive. There is a dive shop but no dive master. He is booked if you want to see him. Bit strange for a dive... More
