On our third day in Negros Oriental, we moved to Dumaguete Springs Resort 30 minutes away from the city. I was lured by the positive comments on TripsAdvisor and envisioned a beach-side resort like Coco Beach (in Syquijor) so we were disappointed to see dirty black sand beach with dead corrals. My daughter even told me not to go to the beach because it's such a let-down.

We took a “superior” room for four and while it was spotless and comfortable, it also was soul-less. It was a far cry from Coco Grande which felt like a genteel home of a well to do Visayan relative. As I always say, God is in the details and both were sorely missing in this resort. Having said that, the staff were friendly and the cook tried her best to prepare good food for us. She also helped book the tour to Casaroro falls. But there's not much to do in this resort save for the lovely swimming pool so be prepared to just chill out. I think it's better to stay in the city or go to Sta. Monica for the beach. Perhaps next time.

Stayed August 2008

Thank you for your response.Please be informed,that at negros oriental most beaches are covered with dark sand ,since the island is volcanic in nature.
However we have therefore great corals right in front of our private beach with a sandy entry ,were you can snorkel and see the coral fish in it,s natural environment
Our resort was built and designed as a very private one appreciated by our costumers to come here to enjoy the beauty of our landscape and also to enjoy the great nature and have fun at our pool and at our very spacious resort and facilities.
Thank you

It was a great day for us even when it was heavily raining because of typhoon frank! My friends and I have the best and fun time at the resort. We were able to have our bonding and relaxation time that we desperately needed. We really appreciate the staff for their hospitality. They have to clean the resort esp the swimming pool just so we can use the pool every now and then because of the strong wind that leaves, etc are also floating. We made a pact to visit the resort every quarter. Hope to see you all guys this September.

  • Liked — the place because we can relax there at the same time have fun!
  • Disliked — none that i can think of...

the resort is an excellent place to unwine after a very tiresome working days, a place where you can totally relax, a resort like home.... a resort located near the city but as if your staying to a place far from the crowded and noisy one.

the peacefulness and the excellent ambiance will bring too much comfort to yourself.

i would personally like to congratulate the owner of dumaguete springs for a job well done. the place is absolutely fantastic! i have been to other resorts in dumaguete for the past few years whenever me and my family visit friends in dumaguete. the resort has such a warm and accommodating staff, the food is absolutely great! The rooms are clean and comfortable, the pool adds a good touch to the place. This summer was great! We enjoyed staying at your resort, keep it up and expect us again next summer! :)

  • Liked — The rooms and near diving spots, also the pool and the sceneries.
  • Disliked — none that i could remember.
