We stayed here for 5 nights and it is a beautiful place and the staff are excellent. Our preference is to snorkel and the house reef is pretty good, but like so many places in the philippines it is pretty 'fished out' even thought there is a designated sanctuary. It is a great start for nearby Apo island, where the coral is great, but again very little in the way of fish.
The resort itself is great. Rooms are lovely with a fab outside shower and well appointed rooms. The gardens are well kept and the pool and bar area is very nice. The dive staff were brilliant although we weren't diving and helped us on trips to Apo and the Whale Shark trip in Cebu.
The beach is a bit uninspiring - gray sand leading into pebbles - not the sort of place to lounge about on really.
In summary, I can thoroughly recommend the resort if you are diving or snorkelling, but if you want a beachy paradise, pop over to Siquijor (we stayed at the excellent Coco Grove) on the ferry for white powder sands.
All in all, congratulations to the resident owners, the place and staff are a credit to you.
