“Quiet, ideal place for a quick weekend escape”
Reviewed February 6, 2012

I stayed there with a friend for two nights and I must say that even if there are other beach resorts around Davao City, Lemlunay Resort in Sarangani is worth the trip out.

Lemlunay resort is 30 minutes out of General Santos City, in Bgy. Kamanga, Maasim town. If you are coming from Davao City like myself, take a bus from the Ecoland terminal going to General Santos, which will cost 240 pesos and will take 3-3 1/2 hours. Once you arrive at Gen San, you can go directly to the van terminals (quick trycicle ride will cost 7 pesos minimum) for the 30 minute trip (40-50 pesos). The resort entrance is by the road and is well known to the vans plying.

We got the garden view room, which is a bit far from the cliff, and costs 1,200/night, with free breakfast. Amenities are very basic (a/c, a double bed, bathroom with h/c water) a side table and a chair, but you really don't need too much because you will be spending most of your time in the pool or in the sea.

There are poolside rooms (to the left of the restaurant, 3,000 for 4 persons, free breakfast for 2) and oceanview rooms (in front of the gardenview rooms to the right of the restaurant, 2,500 for 4 persons, free breakfast for 2) to choose from. There is no cable TV in the area right now, but maybe in the future?

The infinity pool is BEAUTIFUL, with a fantastic view of the sea, very clean and well maintained. During weekends, expect to share the pool and your frontage with day tourists, but it is fairly quiet on weekdays and you can almost have the pool all for yourself.

The food is very good, although there are no other seafood dishes except for fish. But the choices in the menu is quite delicious and well prepared. Expect a 10-15 minute wait after you place your orders, but it's no big deal because you can spend the time just staring at the gorgeous view.

There is wifi only at the restaurant. Aside from some piped in music at the restaurant, the resort is QUIET and very relaxing.

The staff are very polite and unobtrusive, but are present and quick to attend to your needs, especially Sugar, who was our server during our stay.

I am definitely going back soon and highly recommend this as a place where you can visit outside General Santos City, for a change. It is still undergoing development, but already, their existing facilities are already more than adequate. I'm looking forward to the improvements!

Room Tip: The resort accepts day tourists, so expect that they will be converging in the pool area, so the cab...

I have been in this hotel a month ago during my visit of the Mindanao in the Philippines. This was just a diving point but eventually the place develeloped into a hotel with restauranta and bar and all the needed for recreation facilities. The Lemlunay resort is situated at the southwest corner of Sarangani Bay in the province of Sarangani. The hotel is built on a cliff and when you look out at the ocean you will see Sarangani Bay to the left and the Sulawesi sea to the right. You can get there by 20-30 min ride from the centre of General Santos City. The air-conditioned rooms of the hotel are quite clean and equipped with new furniture. For the price of 41-42 USD you can get a room for 2, for the price of 70-71 USD a room good for 3-4 people. Free breakfast and usage of the outside swimming pool is included in the price per room. The breakfast is good, the food has some sort of European taste. The staff are extremely helpful and polite. The hotel offers snorkeling and diving, you can do also fishing or enjoy water sports, but this venue is very good also for families with children - it has a nice playground. The children should be closely supervised though as they might fall from the cliff if they will be allowed to roam around the place without adult supervision. There are mosquitoes, but they have installed "mosquiotes catchers". There is free Wi-Fi available only in the restaurant.
One of the best qualities of this hotel is the nature and the beautiful sea view.
