We had an overnight stay at Camayan. The place is very good. The rooms are clean and the rates are reasonable. The garden is well maintained. The food is reasonably-priced. Every meal will cost you an average of P200.00 per person.
We enjoyed the beach. The level of the water has no sudden drop. Our children enjoyed playing in the shallow water. A lifeguard is on standby to look after the beach goers.
The thing that makes this resort exceptionally good is the marine life in shallow waters. We fed the fishes with bread and banana, and they were all around us. They come in different colors and kinds (e.g., triggers, surgeons, cardinals, sergeants, grouper, butterflies, basslets, and rabbits). There are hundreds of them and they are not afraid of people. Just be very careful with the young triggers, they have sharp and big teeth. Do not attempt to feed them by hand.
I tried snorkeling below the dive shop of the resort, which is about 15 meters from the shoreline. I was surprised to see thousands of jacks and scads. The seafloor is almost covered by them. I was told that they are regulars in the area.
The people of the resort are very friendly. They go out of their way to make sure that you will enjoy your stay.
The only letdown of this resort is the person in charge of their reservation. If you make a reservation, do not use their online services. It takes days for her to respond. She will make promises, but will not give you confirmation. Call the resort directly by phone, and make sure to follow up on your request for reservation because it is not their practice to update you of the status of your request.
