Amazing snorkeling right from the dive area. Saw turtles almost everyday! Two thumbs up.
“Stay to get our 13 yo started in diving”
As the title infers, we stayed here to expose our son to diving and see how he liked it. The Discovery PADI program was perfect for him, the instructor CJ was fantastic. He was very courteous, patient and thorough in preparing our son for his first dive. We will return for him to further his education later this year. We are a Fil/Am couple residing in Carcar Cebu for 7 years now. We go to many different resorts/hotels on the island and as things go, this one was fairly nice. It is off the beaten path, but we liked that. The food process were reasonable so we tried eating in and it was really very good, well prepared, good selection and served quickly. Free breakfast is fine with us, basic and well prepared. Our breakfast server was a bit forgetful, ie: cream and no sugar..... forgetting juices, etc... .seemed she never get the hang of remembering everything everyday. Our male server was much better even offering more coffee upon observing an empty cup. (I know... but not normal for them to observe here so worth note). We also were celebrating our anniversary during the visit and had planned to go to Panagsama beach for dinner, but I inquired at the front desk, and she arranged cake and flowers..... very well done I might add... and so then I asked the chef about some off menu possibilities and she went to the market to get some fresh crab (my wife's fav) so we stayed in and were SO PLEASED with the effort that Jane, Jera and May put into making that night so special. They setup a special table in the area above the dive shop, flower petals and candles all around. A very well coordinated night, thank you to those three and the chef and front desk for a perfect celebratory evening for us. Internet is fine most days, I downloaded many updates and larger files without trouble, but we were in a room near the entrance gate so no signal there... .we simply camped out at the bar when we needed to get online. While at the bar, as soon as we sat down, staff appeared and sat
“Value for Money”
Value for Money but location is remote
“Great place for vacation”
If you want to have a relaxed time at the remote place - this hotel is the one to consider. Nice swimming pool, great staff, beach for snorkeling. Food is a bit pricey, but it's a price for a nice location. Things that could be improved: better water pressure and "do not disturb" sign in the room.
“Excellent sea activities for family with young kids”
1. Very friendly and professional staff
2. Reasonably priced meals, a tuna steak or grill squids as main course is about USD6-8 per meal
3. Great corals around the hotel for snokerling and kayaking. I even saw a wild sea turtle by snokerling around the hotel beach
4. 90min drive to Oslob to watch whale sharks
5. 30min drive to Kawasan Falls to see the waterfalls
1. Rather far away, 3-3.5 hr drive from Cebu airport
2. Its in a province and internet connection is poor. Whatsapp and Facebook are fine, but dont expect to watch movies on your labtop or ipad
“Nice place for a quiet week.”
It was an enjoyable trip. We'll likely be back again.
