We had been here for about a week in May 2010. We chose the place based on internet reviews and price level. For us it was important to be close to the divecenters (Divelink and TSD are very very nearby) and because it is away from the more touristy -and more crowded- beach. Slam's is located next to Divelink, close to Maldito (expensive place!), and an Italian restaurant. In about 1-2 minutes you are on a nice bay able to enjoy a wonderful sunset.
The staff (3 young ladies) were always very willing to help and very nice friendly smiling persons. We had some problems to start using the locker inside the room, but it was quickly solved. We had some fireants suddenly invading the room (hey, it's the philippines, it's the tropics, so you can expect that) but the staff were quickly solving all issues. They invited my filipina wife to join them having lunch and dinner, she had a great time with them!
The resort doesn't have a place for eating, but in the neighborhood are some restaurants and a great BBQ place (just exit the side entrance; go to the left, pass Gingging's garden restaurant) and you are almost there for some real Pinoy treat :), the people there are very friendly, the water is cheap in the local sarisari store.
I think next time we would have a room with aircon, in May and in an el Nino year, it's just so hot.
