I can't say enough good things about this lovely resort! My husband and I had a wonderful weekend here and the property itself definitely exceeded our expectations. From the beautiful grounds to the lovely decor and friendly helpful staff it was definitely a treat. The rooms are well appointed and decorated in with local art making it feel more like a guest room at a friend's home than a hotel room. The upper floor of the main building not only houses beautiful local decor and antiques but an immense DVD and book library along with board games to while away any rainy day. The food was great from local Pinoy favorites to international dishes there's something for everyone. The grounds are stunning filled with local flora and fauna that's thoughtfully labeled for anyone interested in learning the names of the plants. There's a lovely pool and a small but beautiful stretch of private beach. The staff are excellent and were helpful and proactive in making sure we got to the airport at an early hour along with a take-out breakfast! This resort is ideal for couples and families but it would also be nice with a group of friends as Alona beach is a short 10 minute ride away if you're looking for nightlife.
Numerous times over the weekend we remarked how lovely it was and we will definitely be back!
