Reception / Front desk - I wish they will be more "welcomey". Let me be clear that they are not rude, they answer my queries but i maybe expecting more from them because it's a luxury resort and they are the first one you talk to when you arrive.
Other personnel - They are all courteous from the restaurant crew to room service staff. They always greet and smile whenever you bump into them.
Room - It is clean and spacious, so is their bathroom. The usual of what is expected of a high end resort. Wifi is fast during our stay.
Food - The food is good. we have availed of their weekday promo that comes with free lunch and dinner beside the breakfast. We have dinner and lunch at Olive's restaurant. I was not expecting much because i have read mixed reviews of their food, and besides it's free. But I was surprised that their food is good, and not only that, they serve 4 course meal (soup, salad, main entree and dessert) for their "free" meals. The meal is even heavy enough for a guy with a more than average appetite like me.
Swimming Area - Their is swimming pool is nice and big enough. It is only about 4ft deep, which is good for those who are not good swimmers and family bonding. They also have a kiddie pool which is nice for those who have little ones like us. I think their beach area is not good enough for me. I am expecting a finer sand, it's our first time to go to a La Union beach, maybe it's the natural for that area. So If you really are a beach person and have kids who want to build sand castles, this one is not for you.
Overall Stay - I can say that our overall stay is good and satisfactory. I will recommend that you avail of their weekday promo if you can so that it will be more "sulit".
It might be a bonus if the resort can provide refreshing welcome drinks especially on hot summer days for the guests who come from a long trip or while they wait for their rooms to be done.
