My family travelled last May 2016, we were a group of 20 people, stayed at the Kahuna Apartments. We arrived early, an hour before lunch, we weren't granted early check-in because the apartments won't be ready until 2pm. We asked if we could stay in a cottage so we could have lunch, we brought cooked food, too bad they don't... More

The kahuna is in a good location in San Juan and not too far from San Fernando. It is right on the beach, although the beach is mostly for surfers with good waves as opposed to suitable for swimmers. We had too connecting villa's and the rooms were of high standard with small outside terrace and modern en-suite. The pool... More

Banana ketchup in heinz bottle served at the table. Prices per night super high for a small room and old building. Everything looks very crowed. The swimming pool it's very small. Staff seems to be friendly and nice.

We went for a relaxing weekend (Friday to Sunday) and stayed at their Rest House. To me, it was large enough to fit 9 adults and 3 kids. It rained on our first night and noticed that the matress near the window for the two rooms were wet due to the window leakage. We called the reception and they responded... More

Initially I thought it was expensive until I tried it. Now I can say it is expensive but worth every penny. My family stayed in the De Luxe Pool View Room 4, just in front of the pool and about 15 steps to the restaurant, where you get a stunning view of the pool and the sea while you are... More

I stopped here on a road trip to Ilocos Norte. The resort is very clean, the staff are competent, well trained and friendly. Sitting in the restaurant looking out over the West Philippines Sea is very relaxing. The room is clean and well maintained with a nice bathroom and a good shower. So often it is the bathroom which lets... More

Accomodation is expensive compared to the services that guests receive. Had to call the front desk three times with 20 minutes interval for the wifi connection, I was told that they will check but no one came to check. Bathroom tissue was not replaced. I don't complain if I pay more but the services should compliment the price.

My first visit in Kahuna was awesome. I enjoyed my stay even more the second time around. Staff were very friendly. Food was really good! It's good for couples, families and team building for a small group.
