The view is the one to die for. You will be surprised at how small the hotel is---just a few rooms and it looks as if it has only two floor. But they made an amazing job at maximizing the small space. Since it is located on a slope, the architect was able to integrate an underground pool of some sort smacked right at the middle of the hotel with the slope offering an view of the mangroves below, the sea beyond the shoreline and the island of Panglao from afar.
From the small reception area, you can already see the pool from there. It seems like a flowing space from the entrance to the reception area, the pool and the infinite nature view. Thanks to the use of glass, mirrors and light paint, the place exudes space,freshness and warm feel.
They have four (4) room types, superior, deluxe ocean suites, premier ocean suites and family oceannsuite. We booked for a superior room and guess what, we only had it for 2,000 pesos. Seriously? On a summer season? Yes! The Best 2,000 pesos you'll ever spend!
Our room has a view of the main road but it was ok. We were very happy with it. Fresh smelling, clean, simplistic. Imagine the happiness if you book for an ocean suite? With a 32 inch cable ready tv, mini-bar and fridge, the room is fully functional. Airconditioning is central and very efficient. This is very important especially on hot summer days.Comes with free wifi too. Nice!
The thing that I don't like about it though is the sink. The wash area is not in the restroom area but next to the bed.It blends with the interior, yes, but the floor could easily get messy with all the water splatter when you wash.
Another thing is the socket. There are many plugs but if you go with another gadget-heavy traveller, then it would prove to be a challenge. No choice but to make use of the socket located just behind the bed's headboard. It's a bit of a challenge especially if you have the habit of using your smartphone while charging and lying in bed. Then again, no biggie really. We were very happy with our room.
