Booked an overnight stay last July 8 2016. It was an easy process, they responded timely on all my inquiries. We went there on a weekday so we had the place all by ourselves. It was a huge property, well kept and clean. The place is indeed perfect for some quiet time either under the canopy of trees or on... More

I am enchanted by the classy landscape of this resort and the hotel is a must for a yolo retreat away from hustle and bustle of work...a relief for a stress-free life. When you have a dying to read book at hand,simply browse the pages away with a beach in a view or with their individual cottages under the tree... More

Great place to chill and enjoy peaceful things to do. Don't expect your fancy city utilities here - just relax and enjoy doing nothing! A nice get away and change of pace from the hectic city life. Food is some of the best on the island. Nice little beach spot to chill on all day, very close to the bat... More

Dropped by at this place for a Snack but surprisingly we ended up staying longer until the sunset because we find the place very relaxing. You can find cabanas along the sea shore and may opt to dine on that area. This is a perfect venue for small family gatherings and for me this can be the best place to... More

No Wifi in the room, no cable channels which means nothing to see on the television. No pool and you can't swim in the beach because it's disgusting. The service is very slow and the price of the room is quite high. They clean the room every other day and there are times that there is no hot water. There... More

Took a day trip here with my family. Booked a cabana overlooking the beach and ordered food and drinks in the bar near the water. Made enquiries over the phone before hand regarding costs and how to get there and staff were very helpful and informative so we had no issues with getting there. Area was clean and peaceful even...

We ordered a salad and a pizza. The vegetable salad was 100% only the ingridiences stated on the menu - no salt, no presentation, no taste, no oil or sauce. It wasn't even 100%, some of the ingridiences written were missing and the "mixed nuts" were represented by one kind of peanuts taking up maybe 3% of the salad, so... More

We ate dinner here and loved it so much we returned the next day for breakfast. I was looking for some fresh vegetables and salad as the Hotel we were staying at did not have any. We shared a starter of chilli & garlic prawns with fresh, homemade (on the premises) bread which is one of my favourites and it... More

Facilities Ok, but the staff looks so bored & not accommodating! I thought it's a Beach Front Facility but don't expect something like Boracay or El-Nido. You still need to hire a Banca to get to the nice islands, just like in Puerto Princesa! Breakfast is nothing fancy, just plated Continental or Filipino menu. I do not like also the... More

Visited the place with my family recently. Its worth visiting for its solemn atmosphere, comfortable cottages, great tasting pizza, and courteous employees. You can even stay here overnight without getting a hotel room. Beach front cottages cost Php800 for overnight stay. I recommend aqua shoes for swimming. Overall, the place is better than other resorts in samal.
