The rooms were more or less of 5-star quality as claimed. I found the bathrooms appealing, with a simple, elegant design and a separate shower. The bedroom was stylish and comfortable, and the air conditioning worked well. The public areas were less well done but not jarringly bad.
The breakfast buffet (included in room rate) was sumptuous, comparable to those of other 5-star hotels in the country, with a very wide variety of hot and cold dishes. During a recent stay in the US I was shocked at how little variety there was in a top hotel's Sunday Brunch, described as a "must-try" in Washington DC, and costing close to $100 a head. American and European hoteliers should take a cue from Asia.
Apart from the white-sand beach, there is just a rather ordinary swimming pool, which seemed inconsistent with the room quality. There wasn't much else by way of facilities.
The staff were very good - well-trained, spoke good English, knew their hotel even though it has just opened, and helpful. At the sundries shop, for example, when I failed to find a beach bag that suited me, the salesgirl noticed that I was carrying loose items in my to hands, and offered me a nice plastic bag even though I hadn't bought anything - that's what I hope for in Filipino hospitality. (There were other examples of staff who clearly had a personal desire to be of service to guests.)
Bohol hotel prices are higher than those in neighboring Cebu, evidencing a relative paucity of international-class rooms.
