My friend and I decided to celebrate my birthday at Amun Ini last May 9. I have actually saved the resort's name on TripAdvisor few months ago, since it had a lot of good reviews from many people.
We, being based at Cebu from our flying jobs, took the 2H ride via the fast craft. The ride was smooth. You can choose from 2go or Ocean Jet. We chose the Ocean Jet business class (1K per person), which had aircon and toilet. It was much more comfortable and stable. After the boat ride, we were picked up by Lito- the driver. It took another 2H from the port to the resort, but I didn't really feel long since it was a scenic ride. Lito was a safe and entertaining driver. When spoken to, he responds with a friendly and entertaining manner. On the other hand, he will not force a conversation if he knows his guests are tired.
After arriving at the resort, we were welcomed by the owner; Fred. It was my first time in all of the resorts I have visited in the past where the owner himself welcomes you to the resort.
As the reviews state, the meals cooked by the daughter Adrian and son in law Joshua was superb. Where can you find a 5 star resort where the family members are directly involved in day to day operations? Special thanks to the couple who went out of the way and ordered crabs for me. They really take this service seriously with pride.
Despite being jolly on my birthday, I actually got seasick on the free ride given by the dive master to the snorkeling site. I'm a pilot but I'm not really used to a stationary boat that was swinging side ways. In addition to my motion sickness, I also got dehydrated due to the hot weather. Thus, missing out on my much awaited crab dinner.
Fortunately I was staying on a resort that has a family atmosphere. The owner Fred came to my room several times to check on me whether I was doing ok or not. In addition, he also had the kitchen made fresh juice so that I can rehydrate. At that moment I realized that I was in good hand and I didn't bother going to the hospital anymore. (I know I'm over acting about the hospital but I really felt sick)
The next morning when I woke up, I have recovered about 90 percent. The 10 percent I recovered it after drinking coke. I was all jolly again. However, Fred was concern about my breakfast, thus taking it slowly. My buddy actually left me some food from last night so I can still taste it in the morning. (pieces of crabs) I guess it was really good because it really was pieces. Seeing I had nothing much left with the crab, Fred treated me chicken kebab for lunch. The kebab was deliciously tender. Again , my buddy ate half of it since the portion was big.
Final words. I wasn't paid or bribe to write this review. I thank Amun Ini for showing me the at home hospitality from the family, hotel staff and even the guests themselves. I thank you for making me feel safe and happy.
