This was my first hotel experience of the Philippines so I didn't really know what to expect. The location is great and you can hear the sea and the waves crashing in the night - although it was the rainy season we saw a couple of spectacular sunsets too. The local food is great and the service and staff were really helpful and attentive. The rooms were pretty basic and not everything worked that well (light fittings and shower) and the rooms could do with an update. However, the bed linen was really clean and pure cotton. I stayed here a few days with my family (all adults) - and what was noticeable was that, whilst there were quite a few western guests, my sister and I were the only female Westerners. All others were men with Philippino ladies in tow .... which did leave us wondering just what of establishment it was at first!
Overall, it was a comfortable and relaxing break - plus a lovely swimming pool.
