The place is a bit in remote area. There are both positive and negative sides:
Positive: No pollution, fresh, tranquillity, green, sea view
Negative: Shopping, city life, shops, local food stalls, night life
Well, for me except shopping and local food stalls everything was perfect. But I would request management if they can provide bikes (bicycles) that would be wonderful. The room I stayed in was upgraded and the room was really big with balcony and nice sea view. If you are looking for white sand beach, and unblocked sea view then this is not the place. There is no sandy beach.
The hotel is small and wonderful homely atmosphere. It is not too much professional and you would love to interact with the hotel stuff who are really helpful. After evening there is nothing much to do, but we spend a lot of time chatting with the hotel owner Nikolaus. The hotel owner is a big plus for the hotel. His friendly attitude and suggestions I would definitely appreciate. The food is good and reasonably priced. You can ask for BBQ if you want to. We must say the owner to mention somewhere in the cafe that you provide BBQ facility. At night after snorkelling it would be perfect under open sky.
The hotel has couple of disadvantages being in a remote place:
Transportation: Directly arrange with the hotel as it might be difficult to find it out and extra cash if you want to book a cab yourself. 2500 Peso from Mactan Airport to the hotel one way charged by the hotel which is reasonable.
Wifi: Poor Wifi connection as no broadband cable, works on mobile 3G.
Toiletries: Bring your own
I would recommend this hotel for people who like to enjoy tranquility, fresh air, and relaxing atmosphere.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Resort is in a secluded location facing the sea with a private beach. Sunrise at low tide is one of the wonderful experiences in this resort. The spacious setup and location provide privacy. Still the resort is just 5 minutes away from the famous white beach and 15 minutes away from Panagsama with its dive shops and night life. ... more less
