We were here for a seminar. Very comfortable rooms. The function room is quite spacious (we were only 30). The staff are really friendly and accomodating to all our needs. Food can be improved though.

A nice beach resort in a good location. Staff were helpful and friendly. Nice swimming pool overlooking the beach. Enjoy halo-halo from the pool! The high price of the hotel was around average for the quality of this hotel in this area.

This place is awesome for kids and friends, clean room, very quiet ful and accessible area... But this place is not affordable for pang pinoy.. You must bring a lot of money.. This place is like for 4 star hotel. Amazing view for picture taking, and for couples who's wants relax and breathtaking away from toxic place.
