Cant get it better. My girlfriend and me just stepped out of the hot and crowded Makati City and what a surprise we'll found the right place...an awesome white beach just made for us and a few more nice people. Well this was the best opportunity after hard working weeks.
So we found this little paradise and relaxed with a very friendly and helpful personal. They was always around and guess they do more service what we never expected. They invite us for an amazing birthday celebration from the owners daughter, with a big variety of foods, cakes, ice creams and a original Lechon Baboy. (grilled pork). A really great day...Thanks again.
Next day we tried the Zip line near by going to the Cold spring Malaumpati just a few minutes away and experienced a ride through the rain forest. Another highlight in our short summer break. At evening we enjoyed Dinner at the beach with a smooth collection of music and we felt we are on our second honeymoon.
All in all a great break and we know already more summers are coming and we are looking forward to come back again for more thrills....

Room Tip: Choose the new Honeymoon view, amazing overlooking the ocean with a big bathroom.

Phaidon is a fantastic place that I cannot wait to visit again! I'm 23 and my boyfriend is 25 and we had an absolute blast! We stayed for about 2 weeks and never got bored. It is a calm place, not a crazy "spring break" sort of place; go to Boracay for that. The dive instructor was knowledgeable and helpful. Since it was just us and my father with his girlfriend, we were able to take our time with the scuba diving lessons and were even able to take a few days off from it in the middle (my ears weren't equalizing well). Bernie is the owner and is a fantastic guy; he puts his guests first in every way. Bernie would come and eat meals and have drinks with us and go on dives with us as well. The staff satisfies needs without even being asked; no chasing down a waiter. The food is amazing and there are many choices; local foods as well as American, Italian, and Mexican. The food is made on site, nothing there is pre-packaged. I highly recommend the buco shakes. My dad stayed in one of the villas and it was beautiful. We stayed in a more classic hotel style room and it was perfect. There's ac, a ceiling fan, and a tv. The internet is mainly confined to the information desk but we didn't miss it as it turned out. All in all, it really felt like we were staying with friends. We were insanely comfortable and it really felt like home by the end. I really recommend it to anyone who wants to avoid the tourist-y stuff and just relax! I can't wait to go back!

While there are many nice things about this location, we would not book again. There just is not anything to do there aside from the resorts water activities like diving. I believe it's more for divers who will be gone all day. If you're at the resort all day, you may only sunbathe or read. While relaxation is important, we also want a resort with other options. You could not walk to anything outside the resort. It's a very narrow beach. And there are many, small, sand colored crabs on the beach. There was no shower curtain, nor a curtained the bathroom window. The pool was barely bigger than a hot tub and was on the edge of the restaurant covered by the roof. We upgraded to
Honeymoon Suite. It had a living room, kitchen, master bedroom and bath. But only the bedroom and bath had air conditioning. And there was no wifi except in the bar and at the reception area.

The resort provides comfortable, air conditioned transport to/from the airport. The driver as on time and did a great job!

On the positive side, the staff were exceptionally friendly and very accommodating. We were the only couple there after the first night. They go out of their way to make sure your comfortable. Everything was clean. If you're looking for solitude or diving, this may be good for you.

Bernie O, Manager at Phaidon Beach Resort, responded to this reviewResponded April 5, 2014

Dear guest,
Thank you for your respond and may you chosen the wrong location. The resort says on their website and advertisement it is a seclude and tranquil place, no hustle and bustle, party, shopping or vendor area.
That you'll never take time to study the option of activities and tours except the diving or snorkeling trips, the resort offers still more like river tours, mountain hiking, zip line, wall climbing, boating, waterfalls, island hopping or rain forest tours) it may is not really correct in your review.
All the best the Management.

Our stay at Phaidon was wonderful. Bernie the owner, his wife, daughter and all the staff are really friendly and made us feel so welcome. We stayed in the honeymoon suite and our parents stayed in the villa which both have awesome views of the beach, with a daybed to relax on on the balcony. The beach at Phaidon is beautiful and peaceful with the local fishermen hauling in their catch. The choice of food on the menu was huge considering the isolation and was always really tasty and fresh. The beef medallions are a must!! The food and drinks are all great value for money and they also have a great happyhour which you should take advantage of and watch the stunning sunsets. I cant recommend this place highly enough if you want to make an escape and we will definately be going back. Thank you Bernie and all your team.

Don't go there: This place is overpriced, unfriendly, and terrible value for money. There are some plus points at Phaidon beach resort, so I will start with those. The "private beach" feel is excellent. The rooms and common areas are very near and clean. The grass is cut to perfection. The rooftop bar is quite cool. Now that I am done with this "good start", lets talk about the room size. What they call "cottage" is literally what others would call "put a bed in a garage". The "deluxe room" is a bit better, but definitely a terrible value for money. If you book in this place because of the pool think twice: it's literally a bathtub. You can tell it has been built to be able to improve the resorts ranking on booking websites and it's not for people to use (except for foot bath maybe).
The truly terrible part in this resort is the attitude. We got told to order food very early because food required time to "defrost". We checked our order twice but they still got it wrong and food was served randomly over a one hour window. When we requested breakfasts to be packed as we wanted to have a very early start with our private driver, they all got really aggressive as they realized we would not book one of their super expensive tours. They shouted at us. Charged us extra for a laughably small breakfast ("a lot of food" in their mouth = two boiled eggs, one small banana, two small pieces of bread per person). Told us we can't visit nearby malilisson island without them because it is "devastated" and we won't find a boat. It was all "non sense" (to reuse Bernie s own terms in his comments to other reviews).
We gladly left phaidon with the firm intention to warn anyone against staying there.
If you plan to have a good business, I don't think it's good to shout at your customers and lie to them. Nor that it's good to be clearly counting every last bean and practice "boracay station 1" levels of prices. The last thing you want during your vacation is to be treated like a dog...
Go somewhere else.

Great rooms, superb service, beautiful hotel. The rooms, every detail of the way the place looks is ideal, we were impressed service is wonderful and friendly and generally, very discreet.
Everyone makes a point of greeting guests every time they see you walking around the hotel.
