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.
