After reading the negative reviews,one might think that this is a terrible place.but being there makes you think otherwise.
The place is very clean and very peaceful.the only distractions that you will experience is from the other guests.
Chema's by the sea is a home.it is not just a resort.the "no food allowed policy" is understandable because this is the owner's home first,resort second.
People who complain about the corkage and policy do not understand that concept.i bet that after they consume the beer and snacks,they will just leave it as is just like on a public resort without any respect for the place.tsk,tsk...
The owner is very hospitable.like the cool Tito you visit every vacation.we had fun having a beer with him talking about anything.
The room we had with my girlfriend was the one directly facing the sea.it is very beautiful,it has cable tv and aircondition,and its the one that has the strongest wifi signal!(but you are on vacation so why need internet?).hot and cold water is available plus rain shower!very relaxing!
Even the pet dog is very hospitable and so cute!you see him walking around the place like a chubby pug resort manager.
The staffs are very accommodating.my girlfriend had her birthday there and the staff bought a cake for her.
The food was delicious!250 pesos sinigang that is good for 3-4 people.and the tuna steak,oh the tuna steak.my mouth is watering again.
There is only one area for improvement.the room we had have leaky roof in the bathroom and in one of the closet.but take note that we had heavy rain during our stay.and a roof leak can be fixed easily.
But even that small glitch does not take away the fact that we had the best time!
Highly recommended if ever you need some peace and quiet.
