My friends and I booked two units of one-bedroom suites for 5 nights and were very happy with how spacious the rooms were. The rooms were well-furnished and very clean. Each one-bedroom suite had a living room that has 2 day beds/sofas, and a bedroom that has a king sized bed that could probably fit 3. Location-wise, it's a stone's throw away from the beach, and about 10 to 15 minutes slow walk to D-Mall where most of the eateries and restaurants are.
Breakfast was delicious, we looked forward to our breakfast daily, with many choices of local delights to Western meals. We ordered room service dinner one night and found the food to be equally delicious. Kudos to the cooks! Overall, the staff are very friendly and very helpful, and it's further away from the bars and the crowd, so you can have an idyllic respite and just head to the beach whenever. A tuktuk ride to D-mall would cost about 75-100 pesos per ride from the resort, and it was worth it for us as we had 4 people to one tuktuk.
Power supply was unstable sometimes during the night, but the staff said that power shortages happened due to natural disasters and could not be helped. Wifi was available free of charge in our rooms as well, so that was a great plus point. Overall, a very good and pleasant stay. Having explored other seemingly more luxurious hotels along the beach front, this would be my resort of choice for an idyllic beach holiday.
