We booked the hotel in may, 2 months earlier than our stay which was July. It was off-peak season so prices were considered cheaper. Got our 2-queen beds room for around S$650 (6D5N) since 4 of us were staying, in php around P3.6k/day. So around P900/day/person. (S$26) Not bad. We booked via the hotel main website just to be on the safer side. The good thing about it is that they remind you about your booking nearing to the date and the details of transfer services if have via email.
We also took the transfer service from kalibo airport to the hotel. It costed us additional P1300/head for back-and-forth service (arrival&departure) Its considered more expensive but it's worth it if you're a first-timer since people at the bus terminal are making way to those people who booked beforehand. The tickets and transport is already arranged for you so you just have to sit back and relax until you reach the hotel.
Hotel staff were kind, the iced lemon tea kinda helped you refresh from the long journey and woken you up to pay the hotel bill at the counter. The room was spacious, beds were tidy and soft. There was a closet to hang your clothes but the hangers were limited and attached to the closet. The aircon works fine and also the flat-screen TV. There was a ceiling fan but it was wobbly. We were kinda worried about it so we never really used it. You need to have a universal (2-pin) plug adapter to charge your phones amd gadgets. I only saw 2 power sockets which was located between the 2 beds. The bathroom was spacious and clean. Towels were provided and changed daily if you left the door note as "make your room" when you're out.
The free wifi was only accessible in the lobby, but also sometimes accessible in the room. Our room was on the 2nd floor so the signal was still quite strong. If you wanted the wifi access in your room you have to pay additional P200/day for 1 device if I'm not wrong.
Breakfast is served from 7am-10am, the food was good, fruits were served first followed by your ordered main course. you can also choose from tea, coffee or juice as your drink. Although it can be especially crowded since the tables were limited and also anyone is allowed to smoke at their tables. It can really be annoying especially that the wind is strong by the seaside. Ruin your morning fresh air.
You can book the shuttle service to and from the D'mall at the counter. But you can also request to drop you at specific places. I think as long as it follows the route to the D'mall.
There was a small safety deposit box at the counter, each room is entitled to one if I'm not wrong, you can put your valuables there. I can say that it is very safe since nothing happened to our passports.
The watersports offered by the hotel were expensive, I suggest you go out to the diniwid beach or go D'mall to the white beach and find people there who offers packages. Its a better deal. Be careful not to be scammed though. :)
