I was traveling with my family - two growing kids; a call in advance to the hotel and a quick conversation with the owner Larry, was very helpful. He was honest and shared the merits and demerits...but was quick to offer handy information. The property isnt that far from the airport but not close to the beaches...alternative, a daily morning shuttle or call for a cab which is very cheap. The overall value proposition is very high given the space, cottage feel, a wide array of recreational activities all power packed with hospitable staff. I actually remember every single person by name even though its been almost a month we left Cebu.
The food can be a challenge for vegetarians like us, however Jordan, F&B - was very helpful and almost every meal including the breakfast buffet was customised for us. Truly an experience. The quality wasnt truly international (kind of fusion food) however thats why we travel across countries...do get the local favours isnt it!
There is a very nice and beautiful pool, well maintained and what comes alongside is an ergonomically placed jaccuzzi overlooking the greens and the water at the same time.
The experience at the spa was very good, the massage was almost the same price as you would find in the city...yet so convenient and tranquile, must try!
There is a tiny zoo within the premises, however I am not too sure if its a good idea...
Will certainly go back for one more trip!
