There is so much to like about this place but there is also so much to hate. Their staff is well trained, courteous and very helpful. Unfortunately, it stops there and I am so desperate to like this place if only for the staff. The first thing that will annoy you about Camayan is that they have a lot of infrastructure eating into the beachfront. So while they may have hundreds and hundreds of rooms, there really isn't much space on the beach considering the price that you pay for. It does not help too that bulk of their beach front is occupied by these large nipa huts that are rented out to the public who are not staying in the hotel. So while they try their best to make their resort more high end, they also delve into cheap tactics of overselling their beach including a P500 fee for having your photograph taken with a sea lion. The beach is also a little on the dodgy side as the view is ruined by big boats from a nearby commercial pier. The food is the worst. There are no restaurants nearby and so you are forced to pay atrocious prices for a big mound of rice with limited proteins and an abundance of not-so fresh vegetables that you can get in any eatery in Manila. There seems to be few options for seafood, and even fewer options for local fare. While their staff is dedicated and amiable and run a very tight ship and keep the place almost immaculate, the management and owners of this hotel seem to be a little on the desperate side, overselling their patrons leisure and relaxation that the resort cannot provide.
