“Too many smokers”
Reviewed December 24, 2013 via mobile

I couldn't believe that all over the lobby people were allowed to smoke. Ok it is open air, but that doesn't help if everywhere you want to sit with your kids suddenly a smoker turns up and pollutes the air.

I stayed here last November for a vacation with my partner. Just the same as my previous stay 2 years ago, they seem to have improved their service and amenities better.

We were greeted by welcoming staff making sure our check-in is as quick as possible despite our early arrival which was 3 hours before actual check-in time. The front office supervisor (forgot his name) was the one who attended to us upon check-in and made sure we knew every part of the hotel and our room's location and it's nearby facilities we can use. We were then taken to our room which was the Premiere Deluxe using their golf cart. We were totally impressed with the design and cleanliness of the room plus the size and it's furniture which was very Filipino.

The amenities specially the pool are so relaxing and they make sure that guests are given their privacy. I love the Kenneth Cobunpue chairs that they have around the resort which makes it more of a Filipino-inspired resort. The restaurant, Alegro, offered a variety of food and drinks making sure that everything they serve is fresh and of quality.

I will always prefer to stay at this resort every time I visit Mactan. Truly the people at the hotel and their facilities made our stay memorable!

nice beach with very dirty water. you do not have access to the ocean has there is a man made digue in front of the beach.
the service is terrible, bartender or waiter are not taking care of you. you have to ask for every single thing. cashier is looking video on a computer which change the sound of the wall outlet. UNBELIEVABLE
Price is quite high for mactan for beverage and quality is really low. they mixed porc with chicken and are not sure what meat they are cooking as I am Muslim it is unacceptable.
Other resort more expensive but better CRIMSON, IMPERIAL or Shangri la.
Will never return there.

Came here with my sweet honey and my loving sister in law. We enjoyed a day of scuba diving and the girls loved the snorkeling. We took the boat from blue water with another couple to split the costs. was a very nice experience. the dive guide and his boat helper were very nice and helpful. The reefs were fantastic and the wall diving was vibrant and full of life. The girls enjoyed the snorkeling in the protected area off Olongo island in the shallows. Would recommend the diving operation and the bar area for tapas and drinks.

I just returned from a weekend stay. I was traveling solo and looking for a nice, safe weekend retreat. I am from Minnesota and was looking forward to relaxing and enjoying some island scenery. I definitely found it here :). The service is the best you will find. Everyone was so accommodating and helpful. I can't say enough great things about this resort. The room was large and clean. It was also great to have your own patio area. I stayed in the Garden area and loved the door to the room! The pool options were great with really nice chairs for relaxing. I tried all of the restaurants. The Allegro & The Oyster Bar were my favorite. The food was delicious and the service was perfect! I did dine at The Cove and picked a lobster out of the tank. It was good but pretty expensive. I thought Allegro was more enjoyable and it still had local seafood options for a fraction of the price. The beach was really nice and had plenty of chairs. The service on the beach was also impeccable. I recommend trying the spa. I did a 90 minute massage and it was fantastic! The facility was very peaceful. I loved walking over the rocks & water on your way to the massage room. It’s a beautiful place. I was sad to go and can't wait to plan a trip back. You will not regret a stay at this resort.

Room Tip: I would pick the Garden area if you were trying to budget but the rooms on the ocean looked amazing...

I stayed here 3 years ago. Superb!
A quiet refuge from it all.
The facilities were all good.
The room is truly spacious, elegant and clean.
Im a breakfast person and found the buffet perfect for my appetite.
Rooms are "zen- ambianced".
The resort is quiet. just a perfect refuge.
