There were tables set up outside each room so we had a cozy dinner despite the heavy rain. The garden is ample and forest like. The air conditioners were well functioning. There is no intercom yet...

Accessibility: 10 to 15 mins tricycle ride from the port The whole resort is quiet, clean and well-maintained. Rooms are spacious and have its own veranda. We had a standard twin bed. Staff are friendly and attentive especially Junie. He is gracious enough to allow us for early check in and attends to our needs quickly. If you really want...

We booked a Family room and supposedly Honeymoon suite for our family stay. The family room was spacious with hot and cold water and a sink for washing, the bed mattresses were exceptionally thin which resulted in uncomfortable sleeping. The Honeymoon Suite was comfortable but lacked hot running water which resulted in not having a decent shower for the duration...

Precious is a fantastic resort to stay at in Samal Island. Close to the boat to head to Davao and a nice peaceful beach to utilise. The eating area is great too with a good menu and quick service. The rooms are great too although the water in both rooms I have stayed at didn't work properly. The tap only...

When we arrived at the resort I felt very welcomed. Their staffs were approachable. They accompanied us to our room and the moment we saw our room I was overwhelm by its size, beauty and cleanliness. The room was very big, the bed looks good and comfy and the most important thing for me is the bathroom. The bathroom was...

Find comfort in the south through Precious Garden's folksy and debonaire rooms. You will be embraced by the inviting ambiance and your eyes will be delighted with both simple and intricate designs making you feel like you never left home! We had no prior reservations when we stopped by Samal so we had to survey between three inns around the...

Precious Garden Samal holds true to its name. It's a place where the garden is beautifully maintained (I love the landscape!) plus the location of the resort - not too near nor too far from Babak and only 15 minutes travel by boat - makes it a perfect getaway.Just talking with the family in the porch and experiencing the weather...

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...

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.

“if you want a private balcony ask for a room in the second floor if you are going to the vanishing island tour go during the afternoon(low tide) so you will see the island. If you are up for an adventure try to go downtown ask to call a tricycle for you (10.00 per head) to see their Rural life style and buy some street food fried chicken”
