It was a long travel, but the place was good! Staff members were kind to give what we asked for, but there were some instances of delay. Since we availed the package, it was a lesson for us to remind the staff to prepare our meals ahead of time, because if not, they'll not prepare it all, even though it's...

this is one totally independent opinion. i visited the resort by myself last year. first of all, i can say that both the resort and the potipot island are not worth a visit, unless you are from the area and look for some escape for the weekend, or a local large group for some celebration.... it is surely not something...

We really didn't stay at the resort aside that it is already fully booked, its kinda pricey. We visited the resort during the earth hour. I can say that the place and ambiance is nice. We also tried their food and it is affordable and good. There's also this one lady, I think she's one of the owners. She's friendly...

This resort really has great promise and we really enjoyed our stay. How can you not? We practically lived at a house which had the pool on the left side, a play area on the right, a petting area at the back and the beach on the front.

It is a great place to relax and just feel nature. I love the fact that they had animals running around the place like the silky chicken (so so so cute). The room that we stayed in was super chic and relaxing as well. The ambiance is great and is very very quiet. The staff was very accommodating as well,...
