The thing to remember with this hotel is that it's not a 5 star resort in Mactan, it's a provincial hotel 2 hours from some resemblance of normal civilisation and is one of very few resorts in the area.
The resort it's self is very good, with great pools and facilities. The food in the restaurants was reasonable too. The rooms aren't the greatest, but they are usable. One of our guests did find a cockroach in their room on the first night, but had no problems after that. We booked all of the Captains rooms are they were fairly good value, and in fact all the rooms we booked were good value.
We live nearby, but wanted a beach location for our wedding reception and after looking at all the nearby resorts chose Ocean Bay because the owner (Willem?) and the manager were happy to negotiate a good deal for us.
A few days prior to the event they put in a lot of effort to prepare the resort and met all of our requests. They errected marquees and closed off the resort to the public, allowing only our guests in who had booked most of the rooms, and put in a strict entry policy to prevent gatecrashers.
Because of what we got, for the price we got it, we were very happy. Our guests enjoyed their stays, and were happy with the setup.
We did use outside caters (Cesar Catering in Argao, who were also amazing). and an outside band for the reception.
All in all, I'm very grateful to Willem and the manager. This isn't a 5 star resort, but its great value for a beautiful beach.
