Have been there twice, in 2010 and 2011. The hotel has a certain coziness to it and is very pretty. There is attention to details and the best part of it is that it is amongst many, many palm trees. The hotel's constraction and design fits this natural setting.
The hotel's concept is also remarkable. Each bangalow has its own "host-family" responsible for cleaning, room service etc. It kind of feels like home. How much you interact with this family, is completely up to you.
The hotel's customer service is excellent. We also tried their dive shop, which is highly recommended should diving be of interest to you. Great dive sites near by, by the way.
There are several restaurants, and although the hotel's prices are high for Philippine standards, it is still affordable and delicious.
The only downside is, that it almost feels like a Danish "colony". A more cosmopolitan palette of guests would be a plus - I would rather prefer to not hear my own language constantly while travelling abroad.
It would also be very nice to be have easier access to Sabang from the hotel by boat -one can feel a bit isolated at times here, especially in the evening where the hotel's bar gets very quiet (and closes at midnight).
There is something addictive about this hotel, so get prepared to come back again after visiting!
