We spent a couple of nights here and enjoyed every moment of it. As soon as we landed at the pier from Cebu, a staff member came and picked us up. The hotel can only be reached via private car or hired private vehicle, also known as tricycle by the locals. The check in was easy and done with in less than 5 minutes. Our room was on the second floor facing the beach and it has a small balcony to see the amazing sunrise in the morning. It was worth the effort to wake up a little early than our usual wake up time to see it happening. It was probably the best sunrise we ever saw in our whole lives! The room was nice and clean, but the amenities were spectacular! I had to ask the staff where to get more as I love the smell of the little bar soaps they offer. Turned out that it was made and sold locally by a local bee maker. The food and service was excellent too. If you are looking for a quite place, commune with nature and enjoy early morning strolls by the beach, this is the place for you. If you're looking for a party place, stay away. You'll be bored here. I'm looking forward to come back and stay a bit longer next time. Thanks Amarela!
