As mentioned in my title, it's a great place for those who want to relax. The resort had a very relaxing feel to it... like you were at your Grandmother's house. The furniture were "homey" and there were lots of greenery too. There's a big pool, which both the kids and adults can use. There's a beach, although it's not much. A bit of disappointment but then again, I think most beaches in Cebu are like that.
Service from check-in to check-out was great. Staff were very courteous and helpful. They seem to know the hospitality rule that "the guest is king." Front desk assistance was just a call away and they did seem to answer to our every want and need.
We booked the Deluxe Room which had views of both the beach and the pool. Rooms had a refrigerator (which we didn't use), cable TV and a terrace. Didn't have problems with the A/C units. We had a bit trouble sleeping because we couldn't find the switches for the night lights until morning came. It's hidden somewhere beside the bed. The bathroom had a tub, hot and cold shower and was stocked with shampoo, conditioner and soap. Buffet breakfast is included and it was enjoyable as there were many choices.
Location-wise, Cebu White Sands is okay. It's 30 minutes away from the City center and the airport. It's 15 minutes away from SuTuKil where you can eat fresh seafood and 10 minutes away from the Jetty Port if you are planning on island hopping.
