I’m not really sure what to say about this place but here goes; First the location is amazing, the villas are set in a small wooded area and you have direct access to the ocean and a private beach. The pool is fantastic as are the bar and the restaurant. The Villas themselves you can see were once beautiful and... More

Hotel was not really clean. Everything was very old. Seems like they didn't do much since they opened. Pool looked great- for the first, but water was really dirty. Food was okay, little expensive for that what you get. Only one room key. And too many small insects inside the room.

as others mentioned, this is the last building on the swampy south east part of mactan. among those some resorts in the country pretending to be high end, but paying miserable minimum wage to their employees, this is the worst one i have experienced. i will start with the prices, especially drinks: 125 pesos for a canned san miguel. served...

Visited the place for an overnight stay. Place is very good for couples looking to have a quite stay but I would say it's not something you should expect to be higher than the standard. Reservation was not handled properly, we did not get the room that we wanted and booked but upon inquiry they said that's the room. Room... More

If you are looking for nice time at the beach this is not for you. The place has one huge pool and an algae infested beach are for kayaking or paddle boarding. Kayak and paddle board is free but you can only avail when the water is on high tide. If you like a resort that's super far from noise... More

Location: It's definitely a place to rest and relax. It's quite far but the peacefulness of the place is worth it. Pool and Beach: The pool is big and nice but the beach area has not been well maintained. Lots of seaweeds in the beach and water gets murky when you step into it. Thus, not really for swimming. Food:... More

Here in Cebu, you may want to get away to a resort to enjoy some peaceful times with family around Christmas. We choose to spend DEC 23, 24 and check out Christmas day to have a quiet Christmas Eve. We were at first given a room that did not match our expectations and we had to ask them to change... More

We spent one night in this resort. The resort is far from the city, hence it is really peaceful. Loved their villas and pools. The food is simply amazing! They are delicious and the servings are enough for you to be filled. The room is huge and clean as well as the bathroom. There is a beach in the vicinity... More
