We had the pleasant experience of staying at the Princesa Bulakna Resort for two nights and three days. Our group numbered 9 people including 4 children ages 12 years down to 5 years of age. After a horrible experience at another resort we stumbled onto the Princesa and were overjoyed that we did. The resort is going through an upgrade in services and facilities under the direction of their new General Manager James Stoodard, a world traveled professional and the level of service reflects his attention to detail and emphasis on customer satisfaction. The very friendly and helpful owner, Dr. Ed Apolinar made a good choice in selecting James as a world class manager.
The children were more than happy with the resort and protested loudly when it was time to go. They spent hours in the swimming pool and scouring the tide water pools for starfish, crabs and shells that they displayed to us in abundance. The pool maintenance was first rate with the staff starting to clean and care for it at first light, about 5:15 am and throughout the day. It is difficult to get the kids to agree on anything but they all gave the resort a thumbs up and clamored to come back again soon.
From our balcony, we enjoyed a seemingly constant breeze coming off the ocean and from our elevated height remarked over and over how beautiful the surrounding scenery was and what a hidden treasure the resort was.
The food was good with James, who has only been working at the resort a month, striving to upgrade the dishes to international standards. I had most of my meals there and found the food to be satisfying.
I give this resort the highest recommendation in part to the efforts of it's manager James and I am sure when we go back in March, when the children are out of school, we will be once again, fully pleased and satisfied.
