“Good choice for family and friends.”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

This is the fourth time i visited the resort and to sum up my experience of the place, it went from good, to fair, to bad, to so much better.
First time I was there was in 1998. It still had few amenities but what stuck in my mind was the delectable breakfast we had then and the tranquility of the place. The 2nd time was okay and the third time was really, really bad due to the very poor service from what were obviously untrained staff and their insouciance to our needs.
Anyway, I wasn't expecting much when we went back late last year. It was a very pleasant surprise to see that so much has improved especially the service and attitude of the staff. There was no fuss in checking-in and checking out. Cottages/rooms looked the same though since 1998. We paid P8,000 for a deluxe room. The price came with a room and breakfast for four, 4 tickets and free rides to and from Gloria de Dapitan, and free use of the pool/etc.. There were three pools, I think, and my kids really enjoyed the slides. The resort had lots of choices for breakfast. There were also concrete roads all around the resort making it convenient for us to go from one place to the next.
We didn't get to enjoy the place much since we had to leave early at 8 am the following day. But because of the experience we had, we are again making plans to go back to the place.

I been calling the number given in their Facebook page for many, many times and its so frustrating that nobody care to answer. There were few times also that they picked up the phone and hang up right away. You should not put contact number in the first place if you do not want to be called by customers.

The place needs total overhaul. Bamboo restaurant is overpriced, wi-fi is not working. Bamboo rooms could have used big glass windows so outside stunning view can be much appreciated. Room TV is very old has no cable and needs to be donated to charity. Oh and the airconditioning, it shuts down from 7am until check out time, when I asked the front desk why the AC is not working but the room's power is on, I was told its power sharing something? And get this when we are about to check out @ around 11am the AC turned back on! No wifi provided in the room, and everyhing was overpriced. As a balikbayan, its nothing you can be proud of!

Location is ok but the rooms are long overdue for refurbishment. The restaurant is very expensive and no wifi in the rooms. They said free WiFi is available at the Bamboo restaurant but when we went there for dinner the WiFi wasn't working. Not worth the price.

Excellent location but..... Rooms are log cabin effect with logs covered in horrible brown paint. Rooms are way overdue a refurbishment. No WiFi in rooms. AirCon noisy and not working all the time. TV not worth switching on - only 1 low res channel. Rooms have windows but they don't open and you can't see through them. Restaurants - food good but way too expensive.
It's a 3 star resort charging 7 star prices.

Situated at Taguillon, Dapitan City Zamboanga del Norte. I went there with my fiancé and stayed for 3 days. We are in awe when we saw the entire place, it was well maintained, clean, quiet and peaceful. We had a nice airconditioned room accommodation, big and spacious, nice toilet and bathroom. So many activities to do like, jetski, island hopping (which we did and we enjoyed it), there's a bowling alley and disco bars inside they also have horseback riding. And if you are the adventurous type of person you can try the Zipline and do the wall/rock climbing. Good food and nice restaurants inside. Actually the resort has so many things to offer. Words cannot explain how i felt when i get there. So if you want a peaceful and quiet place to go, you can never go wrong with Dakak Park and Beach Resort Hotel. A closest place to paradise one could ever experienced.
